Irrational Emotional Attachment to certain players?????????

Too many to name :-)

Well my primary team is a keeper and I have designated Sizemore, Wright, Peavy, and Bay untouchable and I have gotten offers for them that a better player would probably take but for the life of me, I want to see these players fulfill their potential and win me a title. Maybe not this year but it will happen.

I have tons of players like that...
Giambi
Hafner
Sizemore
Jeter
Turnbow
Jermaine Dye for some reason this year I love.
And I have a Papelboner

I could go on, but right now those are my sackmen.

Oh crap, the trade last night reminded me. EL DUQUE! I definitely have a #26 Jersey hanging on my wall right now...

Eric Bedard is one. I have this sad thought that every outing he will dow ell (obviously not the case). He was big for me last season. Also Joe Mauer (I keep telling myself he's the best catcher in baseball) and Peavy.

Dave Roberts, I've got him on all of my teams.

It would take someone like Kenny Lofton to persuade me to trade him.

Felix.

My favorite player on my favorite team. I was trying to get him all year from someone who snagged him just before I was about to draft him; and finally was able to trade for him a couple weeks ago. I have sent him out there every time and against my better judgement I will keep sending him out there.

I cant help it.

I've got a huge man crush on Travis Hafner. I don't think I'd trade him for anyone. I also really like Oswalt and Chavez. I'd be hard pressed to trade either one of them. I've had all 3 of them the past 3 years. Lastly, the player I don't have, that I really like is Chase Utley. I've been trying to trade for him, but everyone seems to think I'll overpay for him, cuz I like him. :-? Oh well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad.

C - Willingham
1B - Tex
2B - M Lowell
3B - Chavez
SS - Rollins
OF - Crawford, Berkman, Bay
Util - Hafner, Chipper
Bench - Fielder
DL - Cantu

SP - Oswalt, Pettite, Felix, Smoltz, F Garcia, Escobar
RP - Fuentes, C Cordero
Bench - Putz, Benitez, M Gonzo, Verlander, Hamels

For me it starts with Helton, and ends with Varitek. I took Helton in 3rd round and Varitek in the 5th. That way I can always root for them.

I never take any Yankees players.
