England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Don't draft Konerko until the late late rounds, or if you're a big gambler. There were signs of life at the end there, but unless he's absolutely figured something over the winter he's a risk. Same goes for Burrell.

Do not avoid Preston Wilson. He still hit's in Coors. Nothing has changed. If anything, his numbers could be better, due to 9 games in PETCO, now a hitters aprk as opposed to qualcom. Plus the dodgers (Brown, possibly Perez), Giants (ponson, schmidt hurt), and the D'backs (Schilling), all having weaker staff's. Preston should still do very well, and he's still well protected.

Do avoid Preston in the first couple of rounds. It's kind of scary that some people expect a year as good as last year. His second half scares the beer out of me.

I will be avoiding,
Jose Guillen
Griffey Jr, (I want to draft him, I just can never bring myself to say even $5)
Sterling Valdes or Ismael Hitchcock....let wrveres take him ;-) .
Sidney Ponson......I can hear him gettin fat.
Luis Gonzo.....RRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPP, arm is gone.
Brian Jordan....The Braves are talking to him??????? :-?
And the mighty Cesar Izturis....I just don't see the power. ;-D ;-D

I'm treating Petitte this year like I treated Glavine last year. I think Petitte is going to have a huge decline this year.

I disagree on Pettitte. I think he has some really good years left and he also has his main man, Rocket, helping him with the workout regimen.

It's no coincidence he and Rocket, once they got chummy, saw Andy excel. His record since last June is like 37-10 (not accurate but close).

Stay away from Dunn and probably EVERY Red player with the possible exception of Kearns depending on his health.

Then there is Pat Burrell...stay far, far away.

Shawn Green is also someone you should only get at a good price. He could come back in a big way, but you should not assume that. Larry Walker falls into this category also.

Javy Lopez is a major bust candidate as is Loaiza.

Care to tell us why? Pettitte has shown no decrease in his K-rate, unlike the recent vintage of Glavine, and Pettitte is leaving the offense-heavy AL East (and the defensively-challenged Yankees).
