I don't think that Kevin Brown should be on the original roster....... He wen tundrafted in my league so it's not like he's a surprise to be on the WW

most of the guys listed are on the FA cuz they got injured, not because they were underperforming.

this happens every year.

did you expect richie sexson to be in the FA last year? no, he was there only cuz of injury. i didn't expect reyes to play 20 games this season. :-b

if you wanna talk about guys who are in the FA cuz of their performance this year, but you wouldn't have expected them to be there in the beginning of the season...then we have kendall, kolb, wilkerson and some others, but i don't think they are in the same category as thome, dotel or rolen.

Mostly all those guys are injured, so I wouldn't say its that big of a surprise. If it was because they are sucking this year then maybe ya its believeable but almost all of those guys are on the DL, of course theyll be on the WW.

I believe what he was trying to say was that all of these guys are currently in FA, but had you drafted this team in March or whenever prior to the season, you'd have thought you were doing pretty alright. It's true, to an extent. There's no doubt that most of these guys were drafted, and relatively early too. What a waste.


I agree with can beef ;-D

I completely agree with your post, but Thome may have been on this list anyway, had he played all season long as he did the first few months when he was (relatively) healthy. Ugh what a disappointment, have had him in two keeper leagues for one year to many...

C- Inge, Molina
1st- Sexson, Hafner
2nd- Utley, Roberts
3rd- Ensberg, Hillenbrand, Wright
SS- F. Lopez, Peralta
Of- Floyd, Burrell, Wells

What kind of league are you in where those players were dropped? How can it even be fun playing with people that stupid?
