I'll echo the Jason Heyward pick. Thought he'd be an excellet #2 OF behind Braun in one league and um, nothing.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

15 and 30 with a .230ba is not what i expected out of Kinsler. He sucks.

Jason Heyward. I'm guilty of taking him in the 5th with the notion that the Braves lineup would crush the ball this year.

Nick Markakis...NEVER AGAIN WILL I GO THERE.

Regarding Heyward, I own him in a keeper league and am not panicking at all. You have to realize this kid is only 20 years old right now. What 20 year old should honestly be valued as highly as he was this year? He will come around, but I just think the expectations from some people were way too high this year. Look at Jay Bruce. He was just slightly older when he hit the big leagues but it took him a few years to adjust. The smart move is to lower expectations on Heyward until he gets more service time, then enjoy the ride in a year or two when he busts out. Trust me, you want this kind of talent on your team. I just think the expectations were too high from the start.

Markakis- 2 years straight now for me. Never seen such a collapse in a player's skill at such a young age. I don't know if he did PEDs, but if you see him, he looks ridiculously skinny and he has zero power.

B. Roberts

M. Reynolds

I guess I had high hopes for the Orioles.

Markakis doesn'e belong in the discussion. He was a late round flier you were hoping would return to his former overhyped self. He has sucked for a while and to expect anything but suck this season was grasping at straws.

He's on pace for 86-14-54-14, what were you expecting? BA is obviously a bit lower than expected, but not a huge difference.

Dan Ugly is useless.
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
