The Black List...

Postby Mookie4ever » Mon Jan 26, 2004 8:05 am

Nice topic Yanks

For the A list I would add Toby Hall and Beltre (tired of waiting for these guys to break out)

For the B list:
Pettitte
Ichiro
Beckett - great postseason moved him up the draft board but he has never pitched 150 Innings - not a third rounder until he pitches one injury-free season
Halladay and Nomar - good players but not first rounders for me
Kaz Matsui - all hype so far
Teixeira - being taken way too soon

put your beer down...............ok your safe now.....my vote and Ive never been more sure of anything, ok maybe that the ex-wife was a spawn of satan but back to the vote.......... BARRY LAMAR BONDS is going to fall off the face of the fantasy world. just a hunch, but with all the scrutiny of steroids (congress, FBI) I think ole bondsie is gonna be lucky to hit 30HR 80RBI(cause no one can get on base) and 75 RUNS (because again no one can hit). just a thought

An excellent topic. The funny thing is, if you count up all the "B" category players people mentioned, i's over 30 to stay away from. That's about 3 rounds of players. There is a good argument for every player mentioned that a lot of managers draft them too high.

You'd think, wouldn't you. Last year in my pool, some clown took Griffey in the 4th Round 8-o 8-o based on the mashing he was doing in spring training. Some people never learn.


I said he'd merit his draft position because he's going very late. Not 4th round, but much later than that. I wouldn't take a risk on him if there were sure-thing OF's still available. But based on his potential, you can't just eliminate him from cheat sheets.

Cameron...is there a more overrated CF in MLB
Victor Martinez..overhyped even for a C (can you say Ben Petrick)
Beltre...pick year and year out as some retain hope

As long as Im not the one doing it but a few in my league are, than that's ok by me.

I think a gamble is right depending on your situation. A guy in my league inherited a team that finished last. He ended up in in the same place with the team. It's just not a very good team and he's unlikely to contend this year. If I am him, I take a chance on Griffey in round 10-15. If Griffey bombs, it's really only the difference between finishing 12th versus 14th or 16th. But, if Griffey rebounds, he's either got a keeper or someone he might be able to flip for multiple building blocks for next year.

I felt the need to respond to this one. Javier Vazquez is going to be another Jeff Weaver? R U Serious? I'd love to hear why, because I am boggled. They aren't even close to being the same pitcher. Bernie Williams will have a job, he will be the everyday DH, which is better for him anyway, saves the wear from having to patrol CF. Some huge Yanks fan moron manager will overpay/overdraft him. I can sort of understand Schilling, there's usually 2-3 managers in everyone's league who draft SP way too high, and he will be one of them. But he'll still be a top 10 SP for sure. I agree that the rest of the list has some red flags raised.
