Serious drop offs from stars: Can they make a comeback?

Postby Zito is God » Thu Jul 26, 2007 12:18 am

I have noticed there are many more stars with drop off s in the numbers this year than the rest. Whether power or overall stats, what do you see from these guys (all drafted fairly high his year) for the rest of the year and where do you see them drafted next year. My top 8 hitters:

Andruw Jones
Miguel Tejada
Derek Lee
Jason Bay
Mark Teixeria
Michael Young
Travis Hafner
Carl Crawford

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Funny you say this, Jason Bay got dropped 2 days ago (and anyone can see why, Sammy Sosa has better overall numbers at this point) in one of my leagues and then proceeds to hit 3 home runs in the next 2 days. Needless to say put in a waiver claim for him (#1). He's still going to finish AT LEAST 25/90, and at best 30/100 assuming he heats up, so i definitely don't see a reason why he or any of the other players can't bounce back with a string of a few good days.

Berkman is doing only so-so as well. All to be targeted next year for cheap!

Yeah, Atkins had a breakout year, then followed it up with a horrendous April and May. But he's been solid the last 2 months and is probably going to finish with stats a little worse than last year.

How about Soriano? Might be the streakiest player I have ever seen. Anyway, he definetely is not putting anything close to an early 1st round pick numbers. I mean, only 13 SB's and 16 dingers so far? I'm not even sure he will reach 20 SB's, he was interviewed at the all-star break and talked about how he won't be running much since his team is a lot better than last year. I don't even remember when the last time was he got a sb for me
