Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.

WOW!!! Thanks for the rather......completist list, New Zealand Fan!! I'm vaguely looking into drafting all switch hitters in one of my lesser-meaning leagues for next year. Just something fun and different to try...... I'm also trying to build my MVP Baseball 2004 line-up in Dynasty Mode around a core group of switch hitters.

Well just a note for MVP 2004... don't draft lefty power hitters. They won't hit any HR's unless you sim the games. Only righties hit HR's. For a switch hitter, Carl Everett is a good option. Most of the time he's facing righties and he crushes righties, usually to opposite field. And if he's against a lefty he can put it out of the park. Of course Beltran is good too, because every single he gets pretty much is a triple since SB's are extremely easy to get. I have both on my dynasty team. And I'm the Astros too; Beltran and Kent have been destroying opposing pitchers all year for me ;-)

I don't think I've hit more than 3-4 HR's with lefties in MVP. Of course Edmonds and Walker are my only power lefties. :-b
