Yonder Alonso: 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

Once considered one of the best up-and-coming players in the game, Yonder Alonso has fallen off the map.

Just a little humor to brighten your day and get you ready for the weekend, but I saw this tweet and couldn't help but think of Yonder Alonso training and partying with Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn. I don't know what help he would be to Alonso as he prepares to play left field next season, considering Vaughn was a pitcher. In fact after a night with Vaughn/Sheen...
