Who's going to be the biggest bust of the year?

Definitely Abreu. He actually started the year off well with a ton of Rs, but went straight down the toilet.

Chris Carpenter and Ryan Howard. Although he's injured you have to count Carpenter because he started the season healthy and was drafted late 2nd early 3rd.

I'll nominate Figgins.
Guy is not even cracking the starting lineup. At least the other guys mentioned are playing (unless on the DL).

Sorry couldn't resist. :-b


Just judging from the tabloid pic, it seems her guns are bigger than her bust. :-b

I think Garrett Atkins is the biggest bust if the season so far. Here was a guy who posted a line that closely resembled M-Cab's output for '06 and has only managed to hit a paltry BA in the .220's with disappointing power numbers to boot. Bobby Abreu would be strongly considered here, but a power decline has been seemingly apparent since 2nd half 2005 even though his production in other categories have suffered by a good bit this year.

Alfonso Soriano would be a prime candidate here as well, seeing how the factors seemed to be in his favor to post a 30/30 year at the least, justifying his top 5 draft pick position.

well if we take a close look at dice k's season so far fantasy wise he ranks:

Innings pitched:72.2 - 21st
Won games: 7 - 4th
K's: 68 - 9th
Whip:1.31 - 62nd

so this is from yahoo, and it is for the whole MLB pitchers
i guess only stat doesn't go well with him is his high era in 4:00+ but overall he's been a decent fantasy and real life pitcher.
Now he might be a bust for some of you because you fell for their expection of Dice K having a CY Young season, but if you knew better you should have just expected him to be an average pitcher his first season.

i thought he'd be between 3.20 to 3.60 era. not cy young, but certainly an ace. a 4.50+ era pitcher is not an ace, period.

don't forget the whip.

and i'd guess that the wins are a testiment to the strength of the redsox offense more than a 4.50+ era (so far) pitcher like dice k.

After today, I think Carlos Zambrano's name deserves to be in this thread.
