actually, i've been very happy with furcal since he's come back. he's shown quite a bit of power, steals an okay amount of bases, and scores quite a few runs.

Beckett... i thought he'd rock this year.

and you cant really say anything 'bout injuries. Sexson etc. at least there was some talk about. i have both Giles and Chavez along with Beckett and Magglio on one team... and you dont wanna know how im doing. :,-(
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Shawn Green #1 biggest disappointment? It's not like he had a very good season last year either.

It didn't say in order! It said the 20 biggest disappointments and I gave 30....if I missed a few...oh well...but that is a pretty comprehensive list....if you want to put them in order....knock yourself out! But Green is close to the top because alot of people predicted and drafted him expecting a bounce back season.

I'd have to say the houston astros :-)

I keep hearing announcers saying they are still in it, well if they are than who is out of it the expos, dbacks and rockies. Other than that, all injuries aside since its not really underperforming I'd say Zito or Colon.

I'd add Richie Sexson. His demise was particularly frustrating as he'd just kind of started busting out of a slump, hit himself in the face w/ that monster HR and then blew the shoulder out. Got the usual sort of 'news' re 'he's coming back' for a month and then, when he comes back, BAM another checked swing casualty.

Re Dotel, he just hit waivers in our league. I realize he'd given up some runs since arriving in Oakland but would he be worth dropping Worrell for? We use holds but I have other guys who are getting those for me...
