Berkman, my 2nd round pick...

Just traded him for Ichiro, which I felt was good value considering Berkman's struggles.

Now I have to fill his spot with my second most frustrating player....Richie Sexson :~(

On one team I managed to get Soriano and Harden. I even went into the draft vowing not to pick up Soriano cause it was his first year after a big contract signing and players generally don't play well in those years. Of course he fell to me and I had to take him. He had one streak where he was absolutely KILLING the ball, then he got HBP and he hasn't really been the same since. And Harden is just....Harden.

On another team I ended up with Crawford as my first pick and Berkman as my 2d pick. Crawford, while he hasn't been bad, certainly hasn't been 1st round material and he's shown NO power this year, and Berkman is just a joke at this point.

So my big 4 would have to be
Soriano
Harden
Crawford
Berkman

with Myers getting honorable mention, though I'll forgive him if he comes back and pitches well at the end of this week.

Perhaps getting mentioned in this thread 1000 times has lit a fire under Jason Bay's ass. 3 HRs in 2 games this week. He better keep it up when I put him back in the lineup next week!

Carlos Beltran ... a .350 clip in April, followed by .240, 2.30... etc. The air just seeps out of the tires. You bench the guy, he goes 2-4 with a double and a homer...

On my team it would have to be Hafner and Howard. Both have suffered big power outages , of course this year , the year I am lucky enough to grab them both. Also Bobby Abreau is way below board... But there is certainly plenty of season to assist numbers here...
