Every year there are a few players that I avoid like the plague in my drafts and let someone else deal with. Generally speaking they are guys who are past their prime, poised for a bust season, have lost their game, play in the wrong situation, injury risks, problem players, etc...
I know it's easy to say that every player has value at a certain position of a draft but given the position that some guys will likely be at on the majority of depth charts I feel like there are certain guys who will always have a better option when it comes to next year's draft.
What are some names you are avoiding next year no matter what?
A few of mine that I think are sucker picks who I'm black-balling:
Gagne I'd still draft if he's the closer. He had a freak injury, put him in rehab and you never know. I'll avoid:
Thome? If he's there in one of the last rounds I could see myself picking him up, otherwise no.
Foulke possibly but I'd rather find a better closer.

i agree with you pedantic.....
plus this thread probably needs to be brought back up in early october, as there are several guys now that i question,,,, but if they have awesome 2nd halves,,,, my opinion would definitely change........
