It's pretty hard for fantasy baseball to have any guy that leaves such a bad taste in your mouth (and your team's overall performance) that he becomes entirely undraftable. In fantasy basketball, Dwight Howard is a pretty clear guy that I would never draft at all costs because owning him automatically produces a 1 in FT% but no major player in baseball has such an extreme negative impact, not even Dunn's batting average.

If I were to say one guy that I refuse to own, Joe Borowski is that guy. Last year was just such a ridiculous roller coaster that it basically made all of his saves not even worth it. Those nights were he'd pitch 0.2 innings and lay an egg of a 100+ ERA were just brutal. I can't bring myself to draft him at all.

This is not what I meant when I started the thread.

I stated I usually get guys who fall to far.

This is for players who are going way too high in drafts.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

Reyes - Going way too high for me. I have seen him drafted before David Wright, which is just nuts.

Dunn, Sexson, Howard, Jones - these guys are too streaky for my H2H leagues. I might would take a risk on Howard when his value decreases because of a slow start.

Lackey - no idea why this guy scares me

Sheets - fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...never, never again.

yeah well now that is an obvious reason, but this guy worried me last year. No idea why I stay away from him, until the recent injury he has been very durable.

I just think you can get almost duplicate numbers one round later in either Granderson or Rios...so by my rationale Sizemore will never make it to me, since I wouldn't consider drafting him until the beginning of round 3. Granderson outproduced him last year, and I see Granderson hitting around 25 HR's and 30+ SB's (check out the way his steals picked up after the break last year). Sizemore is a stud, but I know he'll never make it to me...so I'll never draft him. ;-D

I don't like Granderson at all . He's like a 0-4 waiting to happen when the other team trots out a lefty pitcher ....

This is why I like Granderson - you know exactly when to sit him. In spite of being terrible against lefties he still outperformed Sizemore. I'm not a Grady guy - he was such an anchor on my team in the second half last year (not in a good way). That said, I think Granderson and Sizemore are both going too high in drafts. Luckily I will own Granderson because I'm keeping him :-)
