Followed to a lesser extent by Helton, Ichiro, Furcal, Huff, Oliver Perez, and Thome..


VMART is fine, another great game tonight. ;-D

I think my first 4 picks in one of my leagues all deserve the dishonor: Todd Helton (no injuries so his crappy numbers have dragged my team down from Opening Day), Jason Schmidt (first 2 starts standard, then proceeds to wreck my staff), Aubrey Huff (low avg and no ding dongs, but admittedly not the biggest bust at his position), and Marcus Giles (roid withdrawal? Putting up pitifully average numbers.)

Furcal's good numbers aside from AVG takes him out of consideration. Thome was injured- hard to put it on a guy who hasn't hurt your team enough. Beltran was/is pretty bad though.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Wow, that's a disaster.

And V-Mart is fine. It's been noted elsewhere that his BBs are way up, so he's seeing the ball better, and swinging at the good ones. He's in the process of a big turnaround, I feel. ;-D

Don't look now, but Beltre is starting to swing the bat. His last couple weeks, sandwiched around the week off due to the hammy, have seen him getting some terrific hacks. We'll see if the power starts to come around, but at least the BA is on the rise, and this may be a harbinger of good things on the horizon.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I think he's capable of bouncing back to much more respectible numbers; I just wouldn't expect the great HR totals, as I don't think he's quite figured how to really drive the ball out of Safeco yet.
