Which slow starters are not going to turn it around??

Anyone have any slow starters, who you are pretty confident are not going to be able to turn it around and live up to their pre-season hype:

My nominations are: Markakis and Rolen

I don't think Wright will end up in the top 50.

Not sure why, but I agree with you. I had a funny feeling about Wright all off season. I think he will finish top 100 but not top 50.

Zambrano - I think people are expecting him to turn it around because he started last year poorly but I just think his arm is feeling all that abuse finally. All of the other Cub starters got off to a fast start because the wind has been blowing in all year and they have faced the easiest pitching schedule in baseball on the year so his bad start is even worse than it looks.

Wright is hitting much better in May. I think he'll finish close to 50 but nowhere near where he was drafted.

I disagree on Howard...I think he will produce just fine, anybody who expected a repeat of last year though were crazy. I cut Rolen yesterday though. I dont expect Piazza to come back from his injury well either. He sucked before and will suck worse after.
