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.. :-)


I think this is a pretty good list, but might include Durham with his "hammie" problems. Corey Koskie has had some back problems that will warrent careful watching in the spring. Jesse Foppert needs to be here too. He will probably miss most the '04 season following "Tommy John" surgery. However, he could be a cheap pick-up in a keeper league for '05. Foppert for a buck or two could be carried on a roster a long time if you are out of contention, or he could be excellent trade bait to a contender late in the summer.

Curious ...

i hate how his hair looks.....


I Don't like drafting pitchers over 35 only becuase pitching takes WAY more out of a player (other than the catcher (i draft 2-3).). Young arms are great because they pitch way too much (Prior, Wood....) and the points keep rolling in ;-D

I thought Schilling was washed up long ago, then he came back and had back-to-back great seasons with the Diamonbacks, and I was sure that he couldn't keep it up. Then he kept it up, and now it's because he's getting old and was injured this year. Don't take my word for it... the day I start drafting Schilling in the first round is probably when he'll finally be terrible.

I actually agree with him. don't get me wrong, schil is a great pitcher. but the fact that he faces #2 starters a lot unlike randy or pedro inflates his stats a bit. i think he'll fall off as well.
