Certainly, that was my biggest miss this year!

I thought that Odalis Perez was going to have a good year this year and advised someone to take him as a #4 or #5 SP before the season started.

Excellent World Baseball Classic play, moments of brilliant pitching on the mound the last couple years, a good home ballpark for pitchers, and being an NL pitcher had me thinking that he would be a good guy to take a chance on.

Now it was obviously bad advice.

We may also be able to include Daniel Cabrera. With his world baseball classic performance and the addition of Leo Mazzone had us overlooking a career of control problems.

Yeah, Soriano Ollie and Hamels are good ones, though I feel like most of the time the cafe is right on, and circumstances are what interferes if the advice doesn't work out (like Morneau last year).

How about the ever growing Kearns Bandwagon posts?

While I think some of it was tongue in cheek... And he is starting to show some of his potential this year.

I think that the Cafe tends to be a couple years too early on recommending guys. This advice can be brutal for redraft leagues. See Bonderman, Kazmir...
