It's a bad idea to hold too long a grudge against a player in fantasy baseball. I had Mussina as my "ace" in 2002 and he burnt me badly. I steered well clear in 2003. Randy did the same to me in 2003 and I kept well away last year.

I'm targeting Randy very early in all my leagues this season. I'll also go after Mussina at the right level as well. One year is long enough to hold a grudge in fantasy. After that you're hurting no one other than yourself.

Konerko burns me like none other.

2 years ago, he bummed out. I had him for half the season before dropping him for some kid named Dontrelle Willis.

Last year, he burns me on the number 2 team, who I only managed to beat because he started Paul Byrd on the last game of the year. Man, he crushed me during those H2H matchups...
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Adam bleeding Dunn a couple of years ago....Alfonso Soriano last year. Will not put either on my roster.

I would also say Burrell 2 years ago. I took him last pick in the 1st round in my money league. :-t

Try an 18 dollar 2b as a #3 overall pick last year...still can;t believe I made that pick. What I was thinking I have no idea as the one time I broke the Vlad draft rule I got toasted for it.

Both of my #1 picks last year(my 1st) were disappointing. I drafted Soriano, I think with the 4th pick, and Helton at 8?. Both had stretches where they disappeared, especially Soriano.

Since Soriano is a 2B, I would take him again, I think he'll regain his form. Helton will be hard for me not to look at as being over-rated, given how many solid 1B there are. Don't know that I would draft him in the 1st round again.

I will let you know who the worst 1st round picks are this season as soon as I get done drafting them :*)

On my roster... I cursed out Wood so many times for the last 4 years it isn't even funny. You can only imagine the frustration. I swore to myself when he was struggling at the end of 04 that if I lose in the playoffs he will be the first on off my roster possibly even waive him. I wound up winning and now I am contemplating whether I should keep him or not. I don't know what would kill me more. If I hold onto him and he disappoints me AGAIN or if I let him go and he breaks out.
