I love this resurrecting old threads thing, keep it up!

All these threads where GTWMA is right makes me want to prove all the preseason Pedro-haters wrong.

Maybe that post will come soon. ;-7

I'm waiting for the Clemens thread.

Were there that many Clemens haters pre-season? I don't remember too much.

Oh yeah...
I didn't think the Astros had much hope of contending this year.

I thought Jeremy Reed would be much better than this and that Hargrove would have the M's running a lot more than they did.

I don't know if I'd say I was wrong, but I voiced a lot of skepticism about the Yanks, suggesting that while they could be in the hunt, they also were ripe for a big flop.

I've been reviewing my holder list and it's a mixed bag. I think my list had about 25 names and only about half of them came through.

And you might be amused to do a search on my name and the word "Pickering"

That's just a few of the black marks in my column

Fatass was the first one that came to my mind. Not sure you were really wrong about him (at least from the threads I remember), but Pickering was his same reliable self this season. Pretty good in the minors, not much playing time in the majors. Nowhere near good enough to take Sweeney's spot.

I still think if someone gave him some regular playting time, he'd be fine. The Royals gave him all of 27 ABs. That's not a fair measure for anyone. He posted a .912 OPS in AAA.

yeah. KC should try to trade pickering and someone for huff, allowing the former to play in TB. i mean, it'd feel just like AAA! he'd feel right at home. :-D

I'll be devil's advocate again here. I believe the argument changed into whether the Indians offense was "proven," not whether they could have a good year.

Also, in deep leagues, if you were depending on Cleveland offensive players you were in danger of being buried at midseason.

Fantastic comeback this year by the Indians. I'm dying to see what Sizemore goes for in next year's auction.
