Best 2003 players who will stink in 2004

Postby demoflauchy » Fri Sep 05, 2003 5:59 pm

From the thread about Loaiza in the other forum... (I didin't want to Hijack another thread today).

Who had a breakout year in 2003 that won't keep it up come next year?

Loaiza comes to mind as a very good candidate for this.

Loaiza, Javy Lopez (unless the Braves sign him to another one year contract), probably Willis too....

What about Sheff? He'll be hard pressed to have another year like this! But I doubt he'll "stink" next year. I've benefited greatly from his production this year.

Sheff didn't exactly stink last year, but he wasn't what the Braves had expected, so I don't think he'll have another bad season as a Brave anytime soon. That's assuming he stays with us next year...

Loaiza and David Wells are the first 2 that come to mind.

Prior to his back injury he was actually pretty good this year. I doubt that he can do it again though.

Here's a list of some players that I am avoiding in drafts next year and think will be busts:

Pitchers:

1. Loiaza: one year wonder written all over him
2. Schmidt: performance way above anything he's ever done; this year is probably a career year and he has legit injury concerns
3. Ponson: won't be a total bust but won't be more than a back of the rotation guy
4. Dontrelle Willis: League seems to have figured out how to hit with his delivery. Will have an ERA around 4.50 next year
5. Redman: will pay the price for severe overuse this year
6. Wood: ditto Redman
7. Prior: won't be a total bust, but I think he'll wear down at some point. Should win 15 games with a low 3's ERA but won't perform like a first rounder
8. Woody Williams: overused this year, injury prone and getting up there in years. Probably will spend time on the DL next year and see his ERA rise into the mid-3's.

Hitters:
1. Javy Lopez: will either get injured or hit for like a .230 average again.
2. Preston Wilson: this year's numbers will be hard to repeat, and will be overvalued
3. Lowell: probably was a career year. Will be a top 10 3B, but not the elite player he was most of this year
4. Orlando Cabrera: pattern of good year/bad year throughout his career. He's due for a bad year, and probably won't have Vlad in the lineup with him either
5. Michael Young: probably played above his head most of the season. .270-15-60 is probably a more reasonable level for him.
6. Podsednik: never hit above .300 in his lengthy minor league career. Will probably have a hard time gettin on base enough to approach 40 steals again.
7. Juan Pierre: with MacKeon's managerial style, I doubt he will steal as many bases next year. Don't pay for more than 40 steals, not 70.
