Guess who's the featured player on Rotoworld's Fantasy "Sleeper" article today?

Also, the opposing pitcher and the other team's defense knows they are going against our ACE and they all raise their game.
And, then there's also Harang's propensity to give up the extra-base hit on a regular basis, thinking he can get a pitch by someone that he's just not going to get that pitch by him. While Harang has not been given the support for the reasons I mentioned, he's also the victim of his own poor judgement when it comes to pitching. Hopefully, with a full season of improved Defense on all fronts, the extra-base hits will be outs and singles instead of Doubles and Triples. The Homeruns will still happen.
