Underachiever of the Year

Postby FoolOnTheHill » Thu Sep 01, 2005 10:32 pm

My nominees, based on personal suffering: Brad Wilkerson and Mike Lowell. Didn't see it coming in either case. Stink factor: Off the charts.

Others?

Ollie Perez?

I have to agree with Lowell very much so. Oliver Perez was expected to do so much, and he was mediocre at best this season before kicking something and breaking his toe lol.

I think the award goes to Perez right there, when you forget the guy exists :-D

Lotsa guys come to mind for me, Jim Thome being a big one. I thought he would lead the majors in HRs, and well, while he was close, he didn't quite pull it off.

He would be more like overachiever. If his season is underachieving, I'd like to see your definition of overachieving. ;-D

To call Ollie an underachiever means he achieved something and I don't see how anyone could say he did that...he was just pure terrible.

Guys who didn't play bad, but didn't come close to expectations includes Beltran, Helton, Edmonds, Blalock, Renteria, L. Castillo, Berkman, Morneau, G. Anderson, and Aaron Rowand. Guys who don't have bad fantasy numbers, necessarily, but certainly didn't meet expectations.
