I didn't know a whole lot about Matt Capps, but kept seeing positive references to him, so I took a look at his stats this morning. Meh. He's likely to have a long and boring (for fantasy baseball players) career. His stats from 2006 seem right in line with what you'd expect from his minor league career: IP: 80.2, K:56, BB: 12, HR: 12. With such good control, he'll always be fairly effective, but there's very little in his past to suggest much upside, and his ground ball rate (around 40%) suggests that he will continue to allow plenty of home runs.
