Enjoy your stay Cubs, 1st in the Central won't last.

Over the weekend, despite the acquisition of Matt Holliday, the Cardinals ran into the buzzsaw that is the Phillies offense and it cost them their tenuous grip on the lead in the NL Central.

Mark your calendar for August 9th - after that date the Cubs will not see 1st place in the NL Central again for the season. The Cards have one of the easier schedules in the month of August playing 13 games against the Pirates, Padres and Nationals.

Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl?

Last night's game at Carolina was truly impressive in all phases of the game for the Arizona Cardinals. They effectively:

  • Shut down the Panthers vaunted rushing attack,
  • Completely jumped all over Jake Delhomme who was praised as an experienced, 'safe' QB who makes good decisions and takes care of the ball
  • Ran effectively despite being without Anquan Boldin (which should have allowed Carolina to focus more on the run)
  • and how about Larry Fitzgerald? He made some of the most unbelievable catches in recent memory.
So what can they do next week?

They aren't going to catch either the Eagles OR Giants by surprise in terms of protecting against the run. But if the Cards opponent tries to focus more on stopping the run, the key will be whether Anquan Boldin can return and be effective. If he can, the Cards have a chance. Even if they're playing in New York. Eli Manning's passing style is similar to Jake Delhomme's - a pocket passer who tends to favor the short to medium routes that the Cardinals completely exploited against Carolina.

It's going to be a great game either way.

Late season sources of steals

Need to add some extra speed to your roster for the stretch run? There are several guys out there from the recently called up, to the long dropped and almost forgotten. Here's a quick partial list to consider:

  • Chris Dickerson, OF, CIN
  • Denard Span, OF, MIN
  • Chris Gomez, OF, MIN
  • Lastings Milledge, OF, WAS
  • Jerry Hairston Jr., MI/OF, CIN
  • Emmanuel Burriss, MI/OF, SF - Warning: He's playing almost everyday, but he's only hitting .168 with one stolen base in 43 August at-bats

2008 Master List of Sleepers: Running Backs

At the bottom of this post is the list of 14 different sources of sleeper lists that I've reviewed to compile a master sleeper list. The one thing you can count on is that if a player is appearing on a LOT of sleeper lists, they are NOT going to be a sleeper in most drafts! Let's look at the RBs, ranked by the number of sleeper lists they appear on:

6 lists - too many to really be a sleeper:
- Rudi Johnson, CIN

5 lists - still too many to be a sleeper:
- Matt Forte, CHI
- Selvin Young, DEN

4 lists - possibly still a sleeper if your league mates don't study at all:
- Thomas Jones, NYJ
- Kevin Smith, DET


3 lists:
- Ahmad Bradshaw, NYG
- Justin Fargas, OAK
- Rashard Mendenhall, PIT
- DeAngelo Williams, CAR

2 lists:
- Felix Jones, DAL
- Laurence Maroney, NE
- Willis McGahee, BAL
- Jonathan Stewart, CAR
- Michael Turner, ATL
- Ricky Williams, MIA

And the massive list of every other RB in the NFL that made one list - Jacob Hester, SD ; Maurice Morris, SEA ; Ryan Torian, DEN ; Lamont Jordan, OAK ; Julius Jones, SEA ; Jason Wright, CLE ; Pierre Thomas, NO ; Adrian Peterson, CHI ; Chester Taylor, MIN ; Chris Brown, HOU ; Michael Pittman, DEN ; Steve Slaton, TEX ; Kevin Jones, CHI ; Ray Rice, BAL ; LenDale White, TEN ; Tim Hightower, ARI ; Jerious Norwood, ATL ; Ernest Graham, TB ; Dominic Rhodes, IND ; Chris Johnson, TEN ; Kolby Smith, KC ; Warrick Dunn, TB ; Brandon Jackson, GB ; Kenny Irons, CIN ; Kenny Watson, CIN
