Bad advice from the cafe?

Search for Cole Hamels or Oliver Perez. The Oliver Perez with the Hastetheday poster is particularly funny.

don't blame the cafe for your loss...you got to do your homework too.


That's the point of this thread.

Bad advice I can recall occurred during the off-season. I was convinced, by doubters on here, etc. that both Liriano and Papelbon were being way overhyped, were going to be drafted too high, priced too high in auctions, and that the best draft strategy would be to avoid them completely, unless they dropped somewhere 'reasonable'.

I was debating whether or not to pick up Bedard after his 12 K game against the Marlins. I looked here for advice, and was told he wasn't worth picking up!! I hesitated briefly, and then missed out on him by a few minutes. :-P

ZIG calling Santana extremely overrated before the 2004 season, pointing out his prediciton after every poor Santana start of the 1st half of 2004, and then eating crow the rest of the year as Santana dominated and won the AL Cy Young.

I think Soriano's predicted decline is the most significant advice that I've gotten from the cafe that turned out poorly. All the warning signs were there, we were just wrong. Oh well. !+)

Perhaps it's the advice I didn't get from the cafe that could have hurt me. Despite Giambi's torrid second half, he didn't get much love from the cafe. Fortunately I was an owner of his last year and took him late in my draft, though a bit [i]too[i] late.

When everyone thought Michael Young would be a better SS than Jose Reyes.

Pretty much every Texas hitter has been off this year.

I'm eating crow over proclaiming that Aubrey Huff was done, caput, no way he has any more fantasy value, etc...
[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

Cole Hamels was the best pitcher EVAR.

To hold on to Matt Kemp.

I missed out on some good players before dropping him.
