Official fantasy baseball sleeper thread

    Most fantasy drafts are starting up now ... mine actually just finished. But thanks to shitty-ass Time Warner cable, my Internet was down and I got the dreaded auto-draft. So now I must build my team through free agent sleepers ... only, I don't have any.

    So here's hoping this thread can offer some help, as I'm sure several of you also will be in need of a few players as well.

    My sleepers:

    1. Alex Gordon, 3B, Royals
    2. Matt Murton, OF, Cubs
    3. Matt Garza, SP, Twins

    EDIT: scratch Garza, he's starting the year in Triple-A.

    If Alex Gordon is a sleeper, then we're all in comas.

    Is he available at other positions than third? I already have ARod.

    You should title this thread, "MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPNITED!"

    If anyone has good NL sleepers, I'd be interested.

    Alex Gordon went undrafted in your 12-team league? Then you are indeed surrounded by 11 comatose owners. If you dont win you should be beaten with antlers.

    I would guess he might go undrafted in our 12-team league, of course no one pays attention to the Royals in it.
  8. I don't find it that crazy that Alex Gordon would go undrafted. He hasn't proven a thing yet as a major-league hitter.

    Now, that doesn't mean he won't catch fire and be snatched up immediately by someone a few weeks into the season. But I can understand people believing there are 12 better third basemen to be had right now.

    I agree with that statement. Delmon Young and BJ Upton went undrafted in our league last year and I luckily snatched them up before anyone else did.
    I am going to be forward thinking this year and draft Philip Hughes, however.

    I would draft Alex Gordon in any league. Right now.

    Philip Hughes too.
