Is Carl Crawford the biggest non-injury related bust ever?

Postby Zito is God » Fri Aug 12, 2011 11:36 pm

Off the top of my head I cannot think of anyone who has under-produced to this extent in terms of expectations (in either fantasy or real life).

In fantasy, has a late 1st/ early second rounder ever bust this badly without some sort of significant injury?

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

Hanley has only been slightly better, in about the same number of games, and he was a higher pick. Adam Dunn...well, Adam Dunn. Lower pick, sure, but the quantity of suck makes up for that.

who was the guy advocating taking crawford at #4 overall as the 1st outfielder off the board?
that was pretty funny back in march, but its just downright hilarious right now.
i bet hes losing in all his leagues that he was (un)lucky enough to land an early first round pick

Crawford has had health issues all year whether it be with his hamstring or elbow, so i'm not sure if you could call him a "non-injury related bust". He strained his hamstring right when he was starting to turn things around also. I also think his hamstring problem is sort of a lingering issue since he's been running a little lighter as a result, but he's starting to turn things around. FWIW he's been great so far in August, obp of .390.

Yeah i don't get it. Carl Crawford has missed a ton of time this season due to injury. Hard to produce like a 1st rounder when you have lingering injuries. He's a big time 2nd half guy. I'd expect his #'s to improve by seasons end, barring another injury.

:-? :-? His speed has always fallen off in the 2nd half, but he usually still hits about the same.

Rios and Werth are two guys who haven't been injured that are far underperforming their adp's, though Werth has 14 bombs which isn't all bad considering he's been flirting with .200 all year
