Postby mikemcj55 » Wed Sep 01, 2004 4:59 pm

This is my compilation of fantasy busts of the year, and I was wondering which ones should be ready to bounce back next year. Please feel free to add any that you think i left out:

In no order:

Vernon Wells
Mark Prior
Javier Vazquez
J Giambi
Carlos Delgao
Brett Boone
Bartolo Colon
Roy Halladay

I just typed this up quickly, but please add some more names to this list

Halladay and Prior will bounce back because their season was ruined by injuries.

You should worry about Wells and Vazquez because their problems are harder to explain.

Giambi will come up with another freak injury next year.

I think the only thing of Prior's that's still injured is his head.

I think everyone of the player's you listed will bounce back to some extent next year. I am least sure about Giambi and I think Prior is the easy choice in this poll. Too talented to suck this bad. :-)

Does Huff count as a bust? He hit number 24 and 25 last night, but I think he's got 40-homer potential that just didn't show up for the first three months of the season.

I think he'll rebound, if the end of his season is any indicator.

i think your whole list will bounce back nicely next year , sans 2 players...giambi and boone.....giambi just scares me real bad to ever pick him again, and with boone i think age and other factors have finally caught up to him.....but prior, halladay, and vaz will indeed be their normal selves next year....and delgado, wells, and colon i think will be back to good numbers again also.....

Is that a capital P on Prior?

Holy sh*t! I thought you didn't know about those sorts of things.
