How's the Larry Walker projection turning out?
Just giving you a hard time. Lol.
Anyway, the real reason why I'm in this thread was that I thought Jackal had to change his avatar . I remember the challenge when it came about and had it been his name, I'd have mentioned that changing names isn't something that happens here. Avatars and sigs are wide open though.
I'm pretty sure it was the name, but if I win this I'm not going to hold it to him anyway. His eternal shame is enough for me.
There were some bad ones, no doubt, Madison. Larry Walker was one of them. I will say this, though, Walker came cheaply, and his numbers so far are actually pretty good, but when you are dealing with Walker injuries are part of the game. Some others we missed on where Miguel Cabrera, Blalock, Steve Finley and Moises Alou of the hitters. I will not get too specific on the ones we hit on, but I'll just drop a few names -- V. Martinez (I pleaded with you guys to take him if you recall), Casey, Dunn, Drew, Abreu over Sosa (I pleaded on this one too I think), Crawford, Jeter and Tejada over Nomar and Rentaria, just to name a few. This isn't an exact science, Madison, and there are going to be misses, but we'll hold up our numbers against anyone's. We're also planning on putting up on our site the last projections before the season began once this season is over. I believe non-subscribers will be able to check these out as well.
And before anyone mentions Sosa, we stated over and over that Sosa will get his HR's, it's the other numbers that make him overvalued. He's doing slightly better than we expected, but nowhere close to what he should be doing in comparison to where he was going in most drafts. This is why we called him a bad value.
