Randy .. finally after 15 years of gloom and doom for RJ .. he goes on the DL.
Morris .. still schocked over this one..
Maddux .. why do peolple say Maddux had a bad year. How about, He came out of the blocks a little slo'
Benitez .. hmmm ..as a set up somewhere maybe...

Abreu .. yes, .. should
Dunn .. Should? ... hmmm..
Burrell .. Yes, .. should
Griffey (ehh?) .. '02 ..gone by the first Sunday of the year. '03 gone by the first Saturday. '04, Gone, for good, to sell cars at shotzie's dealership, by the first Friday.
Green .. Chavez Ravine has a way of destroying hitters. And no surgery for his back is a huge ? or did he finally agree...

I was a little surprised to see that Abreu's season was considered "horrible". Let's see:

2003: .300 avg, 20 hr, 101 rbi, 99 runs, 22 steals
2002: .308 avg, 20 hr, 85 rbi, 102 runs, 31 steals

Seems pretty darn close to his 2002 numbers to me. I think once again, Abreu will put up solid numbers. Don't get me wrong, there is room to improve on his last 2 seasons, but personally, I wouldn't classify them as "horrible".
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I'm with you on this one Madison.

However, for whatever reason, I would say that Abreu has, once again, manager to avoid the popular fantasy radar. How many years, in a row, can a player manage to sleep?

Abreu was a 4th round pick, in my league, for 2003, the same round that Burrell and Hinske were taken!

Randy - He'll be back
Washburn - Never was that impressed. He is average at best.
Morris - All he has to do is stay healthy. The offense will do the rest.
Maddux - Not much left in the tank.
Benitez - Value = which team he signs with.

Abreu - Shouldn't even be on this list.
Dunn - He is Sexson in the OF.
Konerko - Nothing special.
Durham - only valuable if he steals
Burrell - Needs his head examined (I really don't know what to make of him)
Griffey (ehh?) - Needs to be in the AL to DH.
Green - Will bounce back nicely

It was his knee but he does have a history of back pain.
