Tex.

I traded for him 4 weeks ago. I know as soon as I trade him away, he'll hit like 14 HR's in a month or something like that. :-P

Exactly how I feel, except I drafted him. I know trading him is a dumb thing to do because his value is at an all time low and he will probably go on a tear as soon as I do it, but he is becoming incredibly frustrating.

Ryan Freel is on this list every year.

Mike Sweeney used to be there too when he was healthy about 50% of the time.

yea definetly freel, as of late...especially people who are owning him just for some steals...theres no consistency in him getting playing time these days. they sit him out and i start him and then when i bench him, he hits homers and steals bases...very frustrating

Bonds - He blasted off I think 8 HRs in the pre season alone. He has 9 now after last night. Couple that with how you CONSTANTLY must monitor every day if he is even going to be in the lineup and it gets to be bothersome.

Matt Kemp - Kid is an absolute MONSTER hitting .378 with 7 HRs, 16 RBI, 13 runs scored, and 3 SB in only 45 at bats, yet Grady Little still won't give him the starting job! Another situation that has to constantly be monitored.

And, with both of these guys playing on the West Coast, you don't find out if they are playing or not until well after all the other games in MLB have already began. So, when they are not in the lineup, you can't even sub a player in for them. You just have to take a loss at that position for the night.

HTH.

For me, it's Vlad. He's a superstar...no question. But when he's on your team his numbers often look like this:

Mon. 0-4 1K
Tues. 1-3 1RBI
Weds. 0-3 1 BB
Thurs. 2-4 1HR 2 RBI 1 R
Friday 1-4 1R
Saturday 4-4 2 2B 3 RBI 1 R
Sun. 2-3 BB 1 K


He'll have 2 really good games and the rest of the week is either bad or mediocre for a superstar.

Pettitte. I step forward, two steps back.

Julio Lugo. 4 jacks this month are nice, but 0 SB in last 17 and a .302 OBP.

Kelvim Escobar. Not as many K's as I was hoping (6.8 k/9), always seems to have that one rough inning mid-game where everything falls apart. I can't understand how his ERA is still only 3.62. Silly me for thinking he was going to have a monster year.

Michael Barrett? The whole suspension thing is very annoying. You pick up a decent backup catcher, 'cause he might not still be on the WW if the suspension comes later (ie, say another top C gets hurt) but the situation gets dragged out so much it's a complete waste of a roster spot.

Agreed on Freel.
