Yes, because if you can't even spell McGwire's name it very well could mean you don't know very much about baseball, or you're 12 yrs old, in which case, you probably don't know very much about baseball. If you follow baseball, you know how to spell a player's name, period. Well except maybe Mientkiewitcz, which i prob just spelled wrong too!

Loaiza, please don't make the mistake of drafting him. Let someone else see what kind of bust he is with their 3rd round or so pick. :-P

Adam Dunn.

His batting average will kill you unless you have someone magically hitting .390 to balance it out.

Especially that A-rod guy. Sheffield is probably a bad pickup too.

Avoid Rhodes, Zito, Ensberg, Wickman, Luis Gonzalez, Jenkins, Koch, and Ichiro. I'm not saying don't draft these guys at all, but usually they go too early in drafts.

Don't avoid Loaiza and Cintron, like a few others have said. Cintron is going too late in most drafts, I don't see why anybody would avoid him. He qualifies at 2 fairly shallow positions and is a good hitter in an improved lineup.

Livan Hernandez, pulled last years run out of his a$$, real late rounds or hope he is waiver fodder a little before the all-star break.

Arther Rhodes, I hate to say it as an A's fan but our success in finding or restoreing closers might be comeing to an end. I hope I'm wrong.

Hideo Nomo, not before the 12th he will be overmatched as the 1st starter.

Rafeal Furcal, dont take him before the 9th.

Ted Lilly, not before the 16th as he will face the offensive juggernaughts of Boston/Spankee's/Orioles.

Jose Guillen, even with that nice Anaheim offense last year was still a fluke IMHO, late rounds only.

i agree stay away from the guys who will go too early. Bonds, Ichiro, Gagne, Nen. There are a lot of guys out there who's name alone will get them drafted two rounds before they should go.

Dontrelle Willis

sophomore slump bigtime - don't even draft him if you can get him in the last round ;-)
