Jeremy Burnitz - has a hole in his swing the size of the Holland Tunnel. Monster HR's in Col, but worthless anywhere else.

Freddy Garcia - Every time I have him on a roster he goes on a three game losing streak and gives up 10 runs in two innings!

I'll no own either of them again!

Bobby Abreu - overrated fantasy-wise
David Ortiz - came out of nowhere to become a slugger
Podsednik - I hate stolen bases
Jarrod Washburn - sucks poop
Kris Benson - repeatedly disappoints with mediocre seasons, I've given up on him
Johnny Damon - cookie crumbs in every category
Carlos Lee - not that great
Crawford - getting too much hype/praise
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

If you refuse to take a guy because you

don't like him
don't like his team
think he's a cheater
think he's a prick

you aren't serious about winning, it's just fun to you.

I don't have any problem whatsoever drafting a guy that I hate, but I won't draft anyone that killed my fantasy team at some point. That means I will never draft:

Adam Dunn
Livan Hernandez
Shawn Chacon (even if the unlikely happens and some day he redeems himself I still won't draft him)
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Everyone thinks he is an awesome fielder. I think he is the biggest shortlegger I have ever seen in my life. Diving for balls he could catch easily standing up. He makes me sick. He cant hold T. Hunter's jock when it comes to defense!
