Who do you have on your "do not draft list" for next year?

Thanks

many will disagree, but i have dontrelle, but mainly because there's always someone who will take him in the second round. if he slips to 7th, i'll take a stab.

schmidt, because of his recent injury...

loaiza is on madison's no-pick list, but he's not on mine.

javy is definitely not on my list. even if he "drops off" to 25-80 (very realistic) he's still a top hitting catcher.

Loaiza is far and away the #1 player on my do not draft list.

As to others, only if they fall to the bottom of the draft would I even think of touching Juan Gonzales/Shawn Green/Adam Dunn/Moyer/ and Freddy Garcia.

There are plenty more, but those are for starters.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

many have probably been mentioned already, but some of mine include(not neccessarily guys I don't want, but guys I won't be willing to take as high as they'll go):

loaiza
russ ortiz
willis (over-hyped, will be drafted too early)
schmidt (he'll go too soon for me)
prior (I refuse to spend a first round pick on a pitcher)
woody williams (too inconsistant)
kevin brown (injured every year)
bonds
javy lopez (I don't see him being worth where he'll go)
pierre (plenty of other SB guys to be had later in the draft)
frank thomas
sheffield (another guy who'll go too early)
preston wilson (he can't repeat and will also go too early)
brett boone (too old, to early in the draft)
delgado (will likely go too early for my liking)

With all these names, you may wonder who I'll be going after, besides the obvious guys- A-Rod, Pujols, Helton etc..(some these guys I think I'll be able to get later than the above mentioned guys and could be steals (relatively) next year)

Jeff Kent (should rebound)
Renteria
Eric Chavez (I'll take the chance on him)
Beltran
Berkman (should rebound)
Brian Giles
Brandon Webb
Roy Oswalt
Mark Mulder
Barry Zito (he may slip a little in the draft)

blankman, if you really think you'll be able to get the players you mentioned "later in the draft" you're going to be in a world of hurt come Draft Day.

Players I won't draft

Postby grammysboy » Tue Oct 07, 2003 10:36 pm

Gregg Maddux had him to start the year last year and he killed me early, then leveled out then blew up at the end.

Freddy Gracia Freddy was a real heart breaker in our league this year. At least two teams (including mine) lived through his major blow-ups. Freddie will never see my roster again. His partner Ryan Franklin is about in the same boat although he didn't do the damage to my team that Freddy did.

Bo Hart This kid has some real potential if someone with the Cardinals will work with him a little on his plate discipline. If he will learn early-as Ozzie Smith did-to be a "slap" hitter, he could be an excellent player. If he keeps swinging for the fence he won't be in "the Show" for long.

Bernie Williams Our league doesn't score any fielding categories, but the throw Bernie made against Minnesota in the first game of the play-offs made it evident he lacks the defensive skills to play center field for a MLB club. The Yankees are loaded with hitters who are defensive liabilities. Jeter is weak at SS, Bernie is terrible, and Booen leaves something to be desired as well.

If 5 catchers are gone, and you pass on Lopez, thats crazy. I'm not a Lopez lover, i like him, but he has more years of at least 23 hrs then Pudge. Before this year, Lopez .810 ops wasnt far from Pudges .831. With Lopez big year, that gap closed.

Bonds too old? I'm guessing thats sarcasm?

Watch Shawn Green next year, hes back to his 30 hr 90 rbis.

i am not drafting larry walker unless its a 30 team league. its possible clint hurdle's comments will light a fire under his ass but i will let someone else cross their fingers and hope for a comeback.


i dont really have any reservations about drafting loaiza, i just wont draft him as high as his yahoo ranking. and since someone in my league will probably have the auto pick on, loaiza will probably be long gone before i think it is safe to take him.

i think lopez's value depends on where he ends up playing. if he goes to a favorable place i would still rank him amongst the top catchers. i hear he wants to play a little first base so that might also affect his value.

I'd probably draft everyone listed above, just not high enough to get them. Really, the only guy on my do-not-draft list is Glendon Rusch. Oh, and Rick Ankiel.
