BIGGEST FLOP OF THE YEAR??

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby HOOTIE » Sat Aug 02, 2003 2:25 pm

I dont buy Arods a flop? Even at his pace of 39 hrs 110 rbis, those are great numbers at ss. Hinske never really done much to be a flop. Others have been injured. The 2 true flops, non injury, just a horrible season, are Burrell and Green. And Green has the better track record, and is the better player. Green gets the award.

Gotta blame that Oakland offense. Zito's numbers are too good for him to be 8-8.

I agree. Zito's numbers are still good. I blame the bats in the lineup.

IN ONE LEAGUE THAT I AM IN (12 TEAMS) MY FIRST 3 PICKS WERE MAGS, BERKMAN AND GREEN. I THOUGHT THAT WITH THIS OUTFIELD AS MY OFFENSIVE FOUNDATION I WOULD BE IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. NOT!

3 outfielders on your first 3 picks? Ouch.

I think Green is the biggest flop. Talk about doing absolutely nothing. The rest of the flops have at least contributed in some way, albeit less than was expected. But Green downright hurt fantasy teams when he is in their lineup.

Konerko might have had him beat prior to the All-Star Break. But Konerko is on fire right now! Konerko is going to have a HUGE second-half.

How about Shawn Green and Tejada?

I'd probably vote Tejada. I had him last year, and was pleased he won the AL MVP, but people drafted him expecting a min A-Rod. Green had a history of being streaky, and I avoided. People who took him either were aware he is streaky as hell or they are just foolish. I blame the owner for drafting him so high.

I stayed away from Tejada this year, as he is yet another example of a player taking a BIG jump in value. Beltran was another, but at least he produces when healthy. Zito and Oswalt also should have been obvious over-rates for this year's draft. I had all 4 players last year on one team, but I got them fairly late. This year they are all gone after 2 rounds.
