Warning: Gammons predictions

Postby Pokey Reese MVP » Thu Apr 08, 2004 3:25 pm

Peter Gammons has made quite a few predictions of this year, his most notable are always the breakout players. In ESPN he published that Affeldt, Derrek Lee, Jack Peavy, and Adam Eaton are poised to become stars. So those are the four people you should trade because Gammons curse is about as reliable as the Bambaino's. He said Preston Wilson, Esteban Loaiza, and Joe Nathan will fall this year. Hopefully I can trade for one of these three. I don't understand why he always picks people on my team to rise, I have both Affeldt and Lee. We already know Affeldt's fate, so his magic has begun to work already. Who needs to look at stats, just look at the worst of experts ;-D.
Sorry my program for making sigs is broken

Gammons traditionally calls one guy out to be a star and he stinks.

The only one that comes to mind is Bergeron who Gammons was going nuts about a couple years ago.

That said, his picks are really not exactly going out on a limb. I mean, Derrick Lee to become a star? Where has Gammons been the past couple years?

I still remember 2 years ago when he picked Kris Bensen to win the NL Cy Young - dang if I'll ever listen to him again - that one cost me.

edit - I should clarify - I love Gammons stuff on Baseball Tonight and reading his column - I just don't trust his predictions

Here's some more names that I remember. Dunn and Drew. I had to question his manhood after I saw the drool ooze from his mouth when he talked about these two.

Gammons is insightful, and probably the the most intelligent baseball writer. That said, his predictions are probably often right as often as anybodies. (expect for maybe basball prospectus or Bill James)

[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
