He's just getting unlucky. All his peripheral stats are exactly where they're supposed to be for a player of his talent. Just wait. He WILL come around. I guarantee it.

Until I strangle the life out of him with my bare hands. You guys should know I'm currently planning to track down Vernon Wells and murder him until he's dead.

:~( I burned my waiver on him :~( I dropped Moises "grand slam" Alou for him :~( he's singlehandedly killing my teams BA. (Actually Beltre has a hand in that too)

And if I drop now I know that'll be the catalyst that sets him off.

I WANT TO FIGHT YOU, VERNON WELLS!

Vernon WILL be better than Moises Alou at the end of the season. Mark my words...

He's been battling strained ribs, I don't think it is getting any better with him playing everyday.

I'd say Yahoo! has him overrated, I drafted him in the 12th round so obviously my league wasn't too high on him. Guys you take that late are risks. Seems kinda strange to call him overrated.

Chase Utley went with the next pick. Is he overrated too?

If you knew Wells has hurting and were still plating him for any length of time I'd say that was just stupidity. He hasn't been hurting me since he has been on the bench. I actually did get 2 HR's out of the guy the few times I have played him.

Eric Chavez, on the other hand has been killing me (well, not really I am in first, points league). Chavez is overrated. A fine player, but streaky and probably not the best 4th round pick I've ever made.

I wouldn't really call any player I drafted after round 10 overrated.
