What players would you avoid if K's count against you?

Dunn? Sosa? Wilkerson? Bay?


It's sort of tricky when K's count as negative points....anyone have thoughts on this?

thanks

soriano and thome. i know they are studs but i rather look around for something similar which i think you can find. another one is corey patterson. good potential but he whiffs alot too.

Sosa was the first one that popped into my head.

Just stay away from the league leaders in the mega Ks then don't sweat it too much. Ks are hard to predict. I was in a league last year that counted offensive Ks and I tried to pick up guys that had low K totals...I ended up as one of the worst teams in Ks.

Richie Sexson and his 6'7" swing.

And who could forget Russ Branyen?

There comes a time when you have to just swallow Fonsie's K rate for his sick production at second base. Just, last year's numbers throw a wrench into things... :-?

Many of the same players you question the skill of now...

Dunn, Soriano, Sosa, MacPherson, Sexson, Cameron, Branyon, etc.


Thome is an interesting exception to this. He Ks a lot, always has. But he walks a lot also (good OBP) an he obviously puts up great 5x5 numbers. If you league also counts walks, their is a good chance that the walks and Ks cancel each other out to a great extent.

That's the first person that came to my mind.

Here's your top 10 K guys last year:

dunn,adam
bellhorn,mark
wilson,craig
patterson,corey
wilkerson,brad
jenkins,geoff
edmonds,jim
blalock,hank
cabrera,miguel

Preston Wilson might go in that group as he was striking out abot 1 in 4 ABs before he got hurts last year (similar rate to Cabrera).
