Tough love

Postby Rookies » Fri May 28, 2004 4:23 pm

Ever think too highly of a player just because they were your sleeper who panned out or that guy who carried you to a championship?

Ever hang on to that player too long or refuse a legit trade offer just because they were your “dog”?

Do you really good FBB players have any problems with overrating players just because they been good to you in the past?

Who was that player for you?

Good ol Mr. Green...had him last year and have him this year. Everyday hoping he will bust out of what ever he is in and start hitting 40+ HRs again..........................he is the DEVIL.

This is the exact reason I avoid Piazza like the plague during drafts. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Amen to Shawn Green. Although, I'm finally starting to try to trade him. If that doesn't pan out, I have a feeling Mr. Green will hit the waivers for another pitcher.

Johan Santana. Helped me out so much last year. I can't let him go this year. I have faith!

Griffey...he could be batting .200 and not hitting HRs and I would probably not be able to let him go.

But if he gets injured for the season like last year, I had no problem releasing him.

Mike Lowell, because I've had him for the last 2 years while everybody in my league goes on about how he's injury proned and a slow finisher. He'll show them this year..................... :-[

I'll probably keep him no matter what he does because of that, to keep rubbing it in. Plus, he's the best true 3B in baseball (A-Rod is a SS to me).

Im in the same boat. I keep hopeing that he will turn and starting him every day he pitches. After the last outing that might change though.

Santana for me. About 3 weeks ago I turned down Overbay and Lieber for him. Now the guy won't even give me Overbay straight up.
