Worst draft pick this year

Postby vizier_usa » Thu Jul 27, 2006 9:01 pm

Anyone want to post their worst draft picks so far this year? For me it's Jeff Kent, Round Three.

For many, many people it will be Teix in the mid first round. It was for me.

In my dynasty draft in February, I drafted 40 players. I now on 11 of them. So, where to start?

Buehrle #48
Pettitte #80
Valverde #176
Doug Davis #177
Livan Hernandez #209
Lowe #272
Preston Wilson #336
Loaiza #369
Bush #400
Kotsay #401
Jason Vargas #432 (bitten by the ST bug!)
Suppan #433
Byrd #464

We had a pretty smart group of dynasty drafters so even lesser known guys like Verlander who have had good seasons were gone in the first 10 rounds (he went #115), but Erik Bedard was taken at #316, Scott Olsen at #320, Adrian Gonzalez #321 (same guy-- back to back picks) and so on.

Drafting a guy who gets a freak accident does not count. This is about drafting healthy piles of dung!

Why? He was still a horrible draft pick.
I must have missed the fine print for the title "Worst draft pick this year" that says they have to be healthy. ;-)

Because losing a guy to injury is never as bad as losing them because they are just garbage plain and simple. :-)

I don't know. If you lose a player to injury then it is just bad luck but if you pick a player who turns out to be garbage you don't really have anyone else to blame but yourself.
