Injuries aren't busts, they are injuries. You are going to have some players who get hurt and it sucks but its just something you have no control over.

Soriano is a bust in Roto but other than a bad April he has more or less put up what you'd expect so in H2H he's not as much of a bust.

May 1st on he has put up...

.315 AVG, 37 R, 12 HR, 24 RBI, 7 SB in 47 games. Putting that into 162 games you get 128 R, 41 HR, 83 RBI, 24 SB. Thats been his pace from May 1st on.

Ryan Howard (aka vintage Adam Dunn)


Wow. I hope this is a joke or some kind of sarcasm. the guy was out for like...20 games and is still 5th in the NL in HR, 7th in RBI and 5th in BB. If you look at the top 30 NL leaders in HR, you'll find the only ones with fewer than 200 AB's are Howard(5th with 16), Bonds(8th with 14), Geoff Jenkins and Chipper Jones(tied for 15th with 12). Howards power numbers are still very impressive, and thats without factoring in he has been injured.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Yeh, if you can call Howard as a bust, I don't know who is not then?

Vernon Wells, Julio Lugo, Andruw Jones, Dave Roberts (the steals are there but the batting average has been terrible)...that's from one team.

Also, I wouldn't call him a bust overall but Jason Bay's stolen bases have been a bust. :b

From my team it has to be Hafner and Carpenter.

But still, if I had Andrew Jones I will be more pissed of than anybody. I hate his AVG and strikeout rate, inability to hit HR, and losing the good spots in the lineup.

I don't know how Andruw can't be unanimous here. :?
