Where we were right and where we erred

Which predictions by you are you gloating about and what are you eating crow about?
For myself, it's:

1. B-Rob crashing back to Earth after the Break
2. ARam continuing right where he left off last year.

Eating a healthy dose of crow
1. D. Willis crashing back to Earth after the Break
2. Miggy outperforming ARod.

1. Eric Chavez being a Top 5 3B despite batting below the Mendoza line for the first 6 weeks of the season.
2. Todd Jones not relinquishing the Closer role in FLA to Guillermo Mota any time this season.
3. Two words: Chase Utley. Did YOU Draft him? Cause I did.
4. Victor Martinez returning to his Top 3 Fantasy C status.
5. David Wright being a Top 5 3B this season, plus SBs.
6. Yhency Brazoban sucking after Gagne went on the DL x2.
7. Ken Griffey Jr. being healthy all year. Ha!

1. Carlos Beltran having a 2nd half like he's posted in recent years.
2. Two words: Bret Boone. I drafted him too. :-P
3. Dustin Hermanson crashing bigtime.
4. Gustavo Chacin finishing with 10 wins or less.
5. John Garland falling off the face of the Earth.
6. Roger Clemens having a sub-par season.

And that's just off the top of my head. :-o

I remember starting a post about how Willis was someone to target right at the All-Star break and everyone gave me so much crap. I said everyone was expecting a crash and that his splits were misleading and you could get him cheap. Well he had two horrible outings right after I said this and thought, well maybe I was wrong. Been solid since, so I am glad I did not make a fool of myself in hindsite.

Ken Griffey Jr.

To me, that's the only one that matters. Not only for my team (drafted him in the 20th round in a 10 player league), but for him. Ken Griffey Jr. AND Grant Hill making comebacks in the same calendar year... GOTTA LOVE IT!

correct: -That the Gagne 'thing' would linger most or all
2-Brazobahn would out perform Gagne and be a
good closer all year.
3)That i had been mistaken abouut the ALL year thing and
selling high while i could
5)Mora would implode the 2nd half so traded REALLY high.
6)Foulke would struggle(HATE being right about that one)

1)Brett myers will never figure it out :-t
2)K.Wood whatttttta bahgain
3)J.Mesa's arm will fall off this year(missed this one
for like the 8th year in a row),,,I am now amending
it to 'his arm will fall off the MINUTE i put him on my
4)Sean Burroughs would surprise a LOT of people this year
5)"Matsui or Utley? hmmm I will take MATSUI in the 14th
round" :~(

To be determined:
1)Street will have more 2nd half saves than cordero by
at least 8
2)shilling is an arm/shoulder injury WAITING to happen
(please please please let me be wrong)

thats a few off the top of my head

1 - Kept D.Wright over Morneau
2 - Drafted Carpenter slightly before he probably would have gone thinking he would have a pretty good season
3 - H.Street would take over for Dotel and succeed

1 - Traded a lot for Beltran in the off season
2 - Steve Finley has another really good year in him, especially in that lineup
3 - Beltran
4 - Schilling will be back to his old self in May
5 - friggin' Beltran
