Yeah I like Carl Everett, he's playing for the money.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Diehard, lifelong Sox fan. Not a huge Everett fan by any means. But I picked him up and will ride him 'til he drops, or trade him while he's got value to some sucker in a package for some undervalued stud (Mags, Berkman, etc).

Bottom line, I don't like the guy, if he was on fire I probably wouldn't pee on him, but fantasy is all business, and I try not to let my personal feelings get in the way. Hell, I have Evil Empire member Soriano on my team and despite those pinstripes, I'm absolutely loving the guy. ;-)

You people with your fake moral stands are hilarious. Its not like your allowing your daughter to marry the guy. I don't see the people with Alomar on their team yapping about him spitting on an umpire. Get a life people and woory about what's wrong with your life, not some rich baseball player.

C. Everett is a perfectly normal guy. The media always looks for and exposes people who they believe are bad(such as J. Rocker). Yes he has anger problems, but who doesn't? Give him a break and let him play the game he loves. I personally have never met the guy, and thus I'm not gonna pass judgement on him by what I have seen on TV.

P.S.- I did pick him up, and I do believe that he can keep it up. He's always been an unbelievable offensive player, and now he's in a very good lineup. I wouldn't be surpised if he tops 30-35 hrs this year.

carl is the poster boy for one of the best draft strategies around.....draft contract year players

i picked up him, mondesi, robbie alomar, pudge rodriguez....all question marks, and all big enough a-holes to save their best for a big pay-out......I'm trying to deal everett while he's RED-hot, but if I have to, I'll keep him all year.......just not next year
