Do these dudes belong on waiver wire?

Postby chrispistol3 » Sat Mar 05, 2005 12:04 am

After our draft, these players are on the WW and it's kinduv bugging me knowing that they're out there ready to be scooped. Who does not belong in the trash?

Omar Vizquel?

Ben Broussard?

Latroy Hawkins?

Joe Borowski?

Iguchi?

Broussard and Hawkins probably shouldn't be out there, but leave Iguchi, Vizquel, and Borowski for someone else .... they all suck.

Depends on how many teams are in your league. I'd agree that potentially Vizquel & Brussard might be good backups on your roster.

This is the key. All but Broussard and Vizquel should only be out there in a 12 team league or larger.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

1B is extremely deep. Is Broussard's upside THAT good?

Pujols Helton Thome
Ortiz Tex Huff
Delgado Lee Dunn
Hafner Sexson Konerko
Morneau Green Nevin

Then lots of potentials.. Casey Overbay Bagwell Wilkerson Tino Martinez and more..

Broussard's upside is big enough. It finally appears that he's "learning" (as his ESPN.com scouts inc profile put it)

2nd half in 04:

210 AB
35 R
13 2B
5 3B
13 HR
43 RBI
29 BB, 43 K
.300-.395-.595-990

If you have room I would consider Iguchi! I hear he is the real deal this year in camp

I guess those numbers shut people up about Broussard.

The real deal? Hrrrm .... I'd be happy if I were you if he put up Durham-like numbers this season. He isn't that great at all, not even close to Hideki or Ichiro talent.
