Top Players that you just don't like

Lets say, for some strange reason, you are avoiding Albert Pujols at all costs come draft day. You dont have any reasons to back it up, but you think he will hit .250 with 10 HR in '06

Now I believe Pujols be the same old Pujols this year, but a couple of guys who go pretty early just really dont excite me.

Travis Hafner, Adam Dunn, Jimmy Rollins are 3 guys that I would draft, but I know for sure I wont end up with any of them on my team because they go too early for my taste.

Why don't I like those guys? I dont know. I have nothing personal against the players, I just dont feel confident in them.

Realistically, Hafner will be going around 3rd, 4th round in mixed leagues. His upside plus the recent trend indicate that he will be worth at least that plus more. There is no reason to not like Hafner except for the fact that he doesn't qualify at a position.

I don't like Michael Young this year. He has well exceeded everyone's expectations in the last two seasons and he is the most likely to disappoint out of anyone in the top 25.

I don't know if Adam Dunn qualifies. You pretty much know you're going to get 35-40 homeruns with a so-so batting average and a ton of strikeouts. A lot of people will be avoiding him. I think the idea is to come up with someone who will go in the first or second round of your draft, but will not be on your team because you have a hunch.

I had a hunch last year about Carlos Beltran. I don't know why but I thought he was highly overrated. Of course I thought the same thing about Roger Clemens.

This year I'll go with...Bobby Abreu
