Elvis Andrus
Aaron Hill
Manny

I know it's kind of out there....but what about Cano? After being a second half monster for his entire career, he comes out hot as hell this year and then does next to nothing down the stretch when some of us needed it most. I love the guy but he let me down late.

brian roberts...
and he gave himself a concussion

rotoworld wrote:Brian Roberts explained Tuesday that the headaches that caused him to miss the last week of the regular season were probably self-inflicted.
Roberts said he knocked his bat hard against his helmet after striking out in the ninth inning of a game on September 27. Teams sometimes try to reclaim salary from players who suffer self-inflicted injuries, but the Orioles have not indicated a desire to do that.

Grienke. Sandoval. These were the two most expensive names on this list who provided nothing.

Are you guys kidding? It's Matt Kemp hands down. Dude is a utter clown.

Pure injury-related bust? Gotta be Jacoby Ellsbury. Kinsler is close, but he at least gave us close to 400 ABs of below-average production. Chase Utley is up there too. And Jimmy Rollins.

Phew. Happy I drafted Robbie across the board, even though I suffered mightily from having no SB from my 2B position. :-S
