Be careful when drafting !

Postby ssjl » Mon Feb 23, 2004 11:21 pm

Has anyone noticed how many players have come into camp with weight losses in excess of 20 pounds. I guess they were all watching what they were eating .Yeah right.I really believe this bears watching. We have a pretty good idea who was doing what they shoudn't be doing. Just to name a few guys who have lost weight from early reports-Bonds-Giambi-Wells---lets see how these so called studs do this year. Again be careful when drafting these kinds of players.

Bonds didn't loose wait from going off steroids. He was never on them. He just all that water gain from his head that made it look like a watermellon. :-D

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

ha ha....oh wait, that's not funny.

I wouldn't be too concerned about Bonds losing much value. As a matter of fact Bonds/Giambi/Sheffield/Berkman and a bunch of other guys that people have concluded were on roids are all reported to be in great shape coming into spring training. For Bonds in particular, if you look at his power #'s over the years he's been hitting jacks in abundance for 10+ years. I don't think he'll forget how to do it.

So does Bonds fall out of being a lmid-ate 1st round pick? I wouldn't let him slip past me at the 11 spot.

but seriously, be careful when you're drafting

Don't accidentially draft Jose Vidro in the 5th round when you already have Alfonso Soriano.

Here's an article on Wells concerning his weight loss I found interesting...http://canoe.ca/Slam04022 ... t-sun.html.
