Kept Thome in thinking he's a lock for 40 hr's. Kept Beltran, thinking it's BELTRAN. In short, I kept the two biggest fantasy busts.

More wrong predictions.....Morneua would be a stud this year.
More correct predictions......Mench would be as valuable as Guillen.


And didn't you also try to tell me Tejada would outperform A-Rod? :-P !+)

2. Tim Hudson would have lights out numbers for Atlanta under Mazzone (sub-3 ERA).


I was guilty of those two as well. I really thought that Hudson would be a Cy Young candidate under Mazzone.

year.
2-Brazobahn would out perform Gagne and be a
good closer all year.

3)That i had been mistaken abouut the ALL year thing and
selling high while i could
4)H.Street=stud
5)Mora would implode the 2nd half so traded REALLY high.
6)Foulke would struggle(HATE being right about that one)

WRONGGGG:
1)Brett myers will never figure it out :-t
2)K.Wood whatttttta bahgain
3)J.Mesa's arm will fall off this year(missed this one
for like the 8th year in a row),,,I am now amending
it to 'his arm will fall off the MINUTE i put him on my
team!
4)Sean Burroughs would surprise a LOT of people this year
5)"Matsui or Utley? hmmm I will take MATSUI in the 14th
round" :~(

To be determined:
1)Street will have more 2nd half saves than cordero by
at least 8
2)shilling is an arm/shoulder injury WAITING to happen
(please please please let me be wrong)

thats a few off the top of my head

INK


He's not closing now and I wouldn't call a 6 ERA any good. But I guess that does outperform nothing from Gagne :-?



seee correct item #3 about trading Brazobahn high and realizing i had been wrong


Oh, my bad.

wrongs:

thinking bret boone would have a solid year
kevin brown would have a 15 win season
randy would win 25 games
greinke would be a solid pitcher for this year
loretta would be the #1 2b in fantasy baseball this year
pods would suck it up this year with about a 220 BA and 25 steals



right:
smoltz would be dominant
griffey would stay healthy
bonderman would have that almost breakout year
harden would start his rise to a top 5 SP
beltran would not be anywhere near worthy of a top 3 pick
beltre being a bust after his miracle season last year




overall i am pretty happy with my predictions,,, but that loretta one has hurt me pretty bad in a few leagues :~(

Correct:

--In Brian Roberts I'll get a Top 5 second baseman in the dying rounds.
--B.J. Ryan will have a dominant year as closer. And drafting no other closers until the 20th round.
--Targeting Jason Varitek as my catcher.
--Grabbing Rich Harden as my 2nd starter.
--Adam Dunn is a 6th round steal in my OBP league.
--Stashing Lance Berkman on the DL in my H2H league.
--Avoiding Beltre like the plague.

Incorrect

--Todd Helton will be the one sure thing on my roster.
--Mark Buerhle will never contribute in a league where we're counting Total Bases Allowed.
--Steering way clear of Alphonso Soriano after last year.
--Roger Clemens will be crashing back to earth.
