Rotoworld is at it again...

Postby TheYanks04 » Sun Oct 23, 2005 6:45 pm

It would appear that Jeff Kent is so worthless in a keeper, he fdoes not even deserve to be mentioned according to the "experts" a Rotoworld.

I mean, who would want Jeff Kent went they could have Polanco or Belliard?

Maybe he considers Kent a 1B? He should have a shot to make the top 10 there. ;-D

Sadly, I'd wager he didn't. Most of these "experts" probably wouldn't touch Kent, because they're so infatuated with guys who are yet to be, they list them all high so when one of them pans out, they can make claims like they ranked them so high previously, etc. I mean I HOPE it was simply an error, but I really don't think it is. And for that...

That list is rough. You have Weeks and Kendrick, who probably won't even sniff the majors until the end of 06 in the top 10 and no mention of Kent. I think that Kent will outproduce Weeks next year (though it will get significantly closer in 07).

Nope


Rotoworld has Thome and Loretta in the 'best of the rest' so I assume they or he, Aaron Gleeman, just forgot Kent.

Kent would be the oldest player the guy has listed so far, he will be 38 next season.

To say that he will be 38 I hope that that does not mean to imply this sort of ineptness is excuseable...because it isn't imo.

Kent was a top 5 2b with only Soriano clearly a cut better than him (Figgins too if you want to count him). You can argue Utley and Roberts as well, though I can't see picking Roberts at this point over Kent in any format. To forget about a former MVP and a top 5 2b is inexcuseable. To leave him off because of age and say you rather have Belliard or Polanco is even more ridiculous.


He going to forget Bonds and Sheffield, Clemens and Hoffman too?

Of course it should be noted that this guy for his 1b rankings had Morneau over Konerko and Delgado....which begs the question as to where they get these guys? Who in his right mind would want Morneau over Konerko?

At first I thought he was out of his mind too, but isn't he ranking them based on a dynasty league? That would at least explain part of it if I recall correctly.
