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

The Usual suspects fall in here..


Adam Dunn.
JD Drew
Larry Walker
JT Snow
Cruz Jr.
Aurilla
Pedro Astacio

I always try and avoid injury risks.
Austin Kearns is headed to that list quickly and I wil try and steer clear of Willis next season too.. :-)

Maybe this is too obvious, but on my do not draft list:
Pretty much anyone on my hometown Detroit Tigers. Maybe I would draft Dimitri Young if he fell late enough in the draft, but probably not.

very very...agreed. wait, that doesn't work... :-D young maybe.

i see young leaving detroit and having one...huge...year. somewhere like .340 average, 40 HR, and 130 RBI, just for one year. then he falls off production. just a prediction, not set in stone, not saying it WILL happen for sure.

Mike Williams and Jose Jimenez combined probably cost me a top 2 finish in my league this past year. I finished 4th. They will NEVER see the inside of my locker room again.

Willis is a bit scary, but if he were to fall to say, the 7th or 8th round, I'd probably be inclined to take a chance.

Unit is a scary proposition; I won't draft him high enough to get him, but if he fell to me in the 3rd round, I'd be hard pressed not to take him.

I don't want any part of Biggio, Spivey, Walker, Dunn, Juan Gone.....

A couple guys I'm curious about are Durham and Schmidt.....Coming back from injuries they may be iffy picks....?

I got to list Aurilia even though he has been listed a few times.

Livan Hernandez is going to go too early, he isnt projected to make it to the late rounds, the only place I would consider him.

Byung-Hyun Kim, If I knew for sure where he would pitch out of maybe but I dont want a back and forth to the bullpen headache.

Rafael Palmerio, he surprises me every year but next year he will finally hit under 30 HR's.

Jose Guillen, next in a growing line of FA or trade bats that cant produce in Oakland. That includes Damon, Dye, and Justice that did jack and Sh!t there first full year there.

palmeiro scares me with his consistency, although i wouldn't take him until mid-rounds in 2004.

Mike Sweeney will top my do not draft list this year. He could very well rebound and have a nice year but he has burned me the last 2 years and i wont let him do it to me again.

I'm putting Curt Schilling on my do-not-draft list for the third year in a row. I was wrong last year, and semi-wrong this year, but maybe he'll finally be as bad as I keep predicting he'll be.
