Matthew Berry is an idiot..

Postby elltrain22 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 7:31 am

He is that dude that came on ESPN last night and said people are draftin Ryan Howard too early. He is the same guy that had his own fantasy football show on ESPN this year, and b/c of him, I drafted Chris Chambers real early, and he sucked this year. He is a smug, cocky, idiot, and I am 100% positive all of us here could run circles around him at his job. Ya feel me!!!

Agreed...him being on TV really has annoyed me. I used to read his website, but since he aired on ESPN I have realized his information is useless. I think I saw some website who compared and analyzed his rankings (for basketball) against other sites and his picks were by far the worst overall.

He is definitely too cocky for me, too bad ESPN partnered with him.

Well, I didn't see the programme in question, but if he said that taking Howard anywhere in the first 5 or 6 picks is too early, then I've got to agree with him!

He's right about Howard going too soon, especially in Roto where I wouldn't draft him in the top 9. He was off base about Dunn being a bad value in the 7th-8th round though, people talk like Dunn's AVG hurts you more than say Pierres 30 RBI... truth is it doesn't. Its just as easy to overcome a low AVG as to overcome any other stat deficiency.

So what exactly did he say about Howard?


He said that he's been seeing him go 2nd, 3rd, 4th a lot and that with Burrell and Helms batting behind him they'll just stop pitching to him.

Basically that Howard has been going top 4 in most drafts, but with the lack of protection behind Howard right now in Philly that is quite a bit too high. If Burrell does not produce, then Howard will be getting lots of free passes and hurt his power numbers.

He may be an idiot, but not for saying that Howard is going too early. I completely agree w/ him about that.

He can be annoying, grating and just way wrong sometimes, but who of us out there isn't? I've never had a problem w/ any of his past blogs on MLB.com or his current stuff on ESPN.com. In fact, I find most of it entertaining. If you follow his advice word for word, yeah, you're probably going to get screwed. But if you take it, add what you know to the equation, then his info isn't so bad.

Geesh, give the guy a break.
