Wow, that is like an asking to get whacked list.

Thome...aging, injury prone, over-paid, may get dealt or lose time to Howard and no roids.
Schilling...aging, injuired and was nothing short of BAD this year.
Schmidt...injury concerns
Prior...the under-achiever...the Kerry Wood protege.


Frankly, based on where they are likely to go next year, I would want no part of Schilling, Schmidt or Prior. I might consider Thome if he falls past round 8 but that is unlikely.


Maybe you forget the 2 times hes owned your Yankees this year, but other than that ya schill has been bad. :-b

What about Konerko?

100/40/100/.280 and I still see him going to the 5th or so round... can he repeat it?

- In the beginning of '04, he was tearing the cover off the ball after his laser eye surgery, until he got hurt.

Isn't that his story just about every year, though? I like Glaus, and his full-season potential is ridiculous, but he's perenially undervalued because he's an injury risk every year.

His numbers outside of his insane start in '04 don't even come close to justifying where he is usually taken in most drafts. He is the perfect example of a player who is FAR more valuable to his real life team than he could ever be for a fantasy squad. :-[

I like the Escobar pick BTW. ;-D He was one of my sleepers coming into this year before he got hurt, and if he's healthy next year I think he will have himself a very solid year. ;-D

Agreed. Reasonable expectations of Rolen are .280/30/100 barring injuries. Anything more than that is gravy.

On this same subject, I called KMOX when we signed Rolen and let Bernie et al know that I was very unhappy about it. At the time, I felt that we needed pitching, not another HR threat. We already had Pujols and Edmonds, but Bernie insisted that signing one of the greatest 3B ever was a smart move.

Of course, I came out looking like the moron there as Rolen went on to have a career year in '04 and we made it to the Series because Walt managed to find quite a few diamonds in the rough with Carpenter and Suppan.

Anyways, don't know where I'm going with that. Just thought I'd share.

;-D

For a guy that waited just under a month to return form a broken elbow, I think that Prior pithed pretty well. I do think that a) he came back too early & b) the injury bothered him more than we know.
A healthy Prior is one of the very best that MLB has to offer. I look for a return to prominence next year.

If he stay with the ChiSox or ends up in Boston. Watch out if he goes to Shea.

Reggie Sanders.
Cantu will probably be undervalued.
Raul Ibanez.
Randy Winn.

Just trying to throw out names of useful players that haven't been mentioned yet.

Given Wynn's tear in SF, I am not so certain he will be undervalued. I think this put him on a lot of people's radar screens.

In fact, although I like him as a consistent producer, I would not be willing to pay for .300 20+/20, which is what some people will be doing.
