What about Rich Aurillia?
.234 with 2 homers

I hope they didn't expect him to reproduce 2001 numbers :*)

I was thinking Aurilia too, but they signed him for $3.1 mill., so its not like the broke the bank to get him. What makes it really ugly is that the Mariners traded away Guillen to make room for him.

Mondesi has to be the worst IMO. ;-)

Call me biased, but Juan Gone takes the cake for me. The Royals got exactly what everyone expected (except for Royals management). Crappy clubhouse guy that is nowhere near Juan of old. Big mistake signing him instead of keeping Rhondell White.

I have to go with Colon, too. Not only is he feeding his belly and ERA at the same pace, but he is making fantasy owners cringe at their top-10 pick. 4th in my league.

No?

How about the Angels signing Mondesi then? (most likely out for the year with a torn quad)

One way or the other, it's Mondesi. Lol. :-D


I think we have a winner :~(

Sexson for Arizona. He was a late 2nd or early 3rd round pick in all of my leagues this year. He was batting .233 before being injured, and out for the season. The only positive is that his sheer power gave him 9HR's with that horrid AVG.
