Players who have hit a wall...

Postby Twinskies » Sun May 16, 2004 10:50 pm

Some guys get your hopes up when they have a great April, you pick them up, and then proceed to ruin your team by going into a horrible slump for the past 2 weeks...I put Charles Johnson at the top of my list, i thought we was having another breakout year until he decided to stop playing this month, i dropped him after his 0-5 w/ 4Ks performance today. Unfortunately Brian Roberts seems to be heading in this direction too...anyone else?
This field, this game, it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh people will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

Last year that guy was Jose Cruz...

This year, to nobody's surprise, Steve Finley and hee sop Choi will do this to somebody soon too, if not already. Steve Finley especially is just a guy I refuse to have on my team.

Consequently, i will point out people who i do NOT expect to slow down...overbay and Craig Wilson...
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.

add Belliard to the very top of that list... i agree on Choi and the others but i think Finley can still end up with some pretty decent numbers.

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

Cruz did it again for a week this season.

Charles Johnson is a great example of a guy hitting the wall.

Batting under .150 in May with 0 RBI'S in over 50 AB's 8-o after crushing it in April.

dye, belliard, choi, gerut, sanchez, the list goes on and on. How about Barry Bonds, i think he may have topped out at that .500 BA.

Sanchez has been playing his best ball lately. He's been caught stealing a few times, but that's pretty much usual. I am glad I've been patient with him, there was a stretch I almost dropped him. (assuming you meant Alex Sanchez).

How 'bout The Game?
Suppose Bradley maxed out the 'change of scenery' and has peaked already?
