Gotta eat a little crow....

Postby J35J » Fri Oct 07, 2005 10:05 am

Beginning of the year I had Blalock pegged as a top 3 three bagger and said he should at least be better than Mora this year and well it was happening most of the season but Blalock really fell off the last couple of months of the season and was garbage! I wasn't so much wrong about Mora as I was about Blalock. I figured Mora would be about where he finished this year maybe a little better but it was Blalock who I thought would have a big year and that didn't turn out. Anyway, that prediction didn't go over so well.

I know alot of other people had 1 on 1 predictions in there profile like the Mulder v Haren prediction. Lets hear who else has to eat crow this year. I remember a few people in the preseason said there was no way Arod would hit 40 hrs playing for the Yankees. I want to see those people man up and eat some crow.

later guys,
Jason

I was totally wrong about Giambi ... thought he was toast. At draft time, I wouldn't touch him, and about the middle of May, I was feeling pretty full of myself. Well, final results proved me wrong. So, that is my crow-eating tale :-{

I dropped David Wright early in the year. Same with Jon Garland, and I traded Konerko for Sabathia in early May and subsequently gave up on Sabathia after the AS break. Oh yeah, I dropped Griffey Jr. in April.

Then again I did trade away Jason Schmidt because I thought he'd get hurt ;-D

I traded Wright for Blalock right before Wright went off. Oh well.

Aubrey Huff did not hit .320

Aramis and Clement dissapointed although it was due to injuries.
[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

I had Beltran ranked 2nd overall and took him there every time I had the chance.. :-t

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I guaranteed Abreu would hit 30 HR.

I said Oswalt would spend significant time on the DL.

I thought Jose Guillen was worth more than Chris Carpenter when someone offered the Cy Young favorite to me in April. :~( :~( :~(

I traded Morgan Ensberg early in the season for Kevin Mench. I thought it was a steal! :*)
