I have him in a dynasty league, so it does not really matter.You make it sound like the guy couldnt return to first round material.People could reap the benefits of him next year taking a chane on him early.Thats what so great about risk/rewardYoda wrote:TurdFerguson wrote:Yeah just write him off after one bad half of baseballYoda wrote:pokerplaya wrote:Yoda wrote:pokerplaya wrote:Beltran was a bust in '05. Tex was a letdown this year, but not a total bust. I'll begrudgingly take the .280 30 100, and look for .285 40 125 next year.
Beltran was injured in 05 so at least he had an excuse.
Also, Teixeira was taken 3rd, 4th overall and produced like an 8th rounder. That is a bust in my book.
Injury or not, Beltran was still a major bust. Worse than Teix this year. Drafted from 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th OVERALL and performing like a waiver wire scrub made him a bust.
Teixiera a bust? Fine. I drafted him this year, and I'll do so again next year and with a smile on my face. Twenty one post ASB HR's, to go along with 105RBI's on the year with a week left is more than enough to select him again in 07.
Yep put a big smile on your face when you draft him in the first round again next year.
Am I writing him off how? Are you going to pick him in the first round next year?
