Forgetting about Albert Pujols? :-?

Pretty good list overwise.

I knew about Pujols, but Helton fans could have their case. It really depends on the scoring system..I know he's not the best.. ;-)

First off I don't consider someone who got hurt to be a bust, so players like Thome simply do not belong on the list.

C - Vmart, Irod, Mauer - none of these guys have come close to expectations
1B - Helton
2B - Boone
SS - Guillen (yeah I know his average is high but the rest sucks), Cabrera
3B - Lowell
OF - Beltran, Huff, Patterson,

SP - Schmidt, Pavano, Greinke, Oliver Perez (sorry but RJ, Sheets, Santana other than ERA which is a weak stat have not been terrible this year)
RP - Foulke, Kolb, Mota

Irod...OK season...but no roids=no power.

1B Helton...Nothing like them roids in Coors.
Thome...can you say waste of food?

2B So much mediocrity to choose from. homers and goes and gets hurt
Boone...No roids, Smurf released from M's

SS O. Cabrera...can you say stiff?
Furcal...Can you say choke in a contract year?

3B Beltre...Got the money, off the roids
Lowell...Complete meltdown

OF Beltran...big bucks, 1st round...hits like Eric Byrnes
Sosa...No roids makes Sammy a very bad OF.
Patterson...Are we sure he did not switch uniforms with Cameron?

SP Schilling...Hurt all year due to apparent allergy to ketchup.
SP RJ...choking in/on the big apple
SP Schmidt...hurt and stinking it up.
SP Ol. Perez...can you say total waste.
SP of these years, he will get more than 9 Ws without some wuss injury.
SP Wood...OVERRATED and always has been.

RP Benitez...hurt all year
RP Foulke...doing his best Shawn Chacon impersonation.
RP guts.
RP Dotel...see Mota
RP Kolb....complete meltdown
RP Graves...see Kolb

Honorable mentions:
Wright, Milton, Brown...right in line with expectations
Pavano...Went to the Vazquez school.
Womack...So bad he can't even lay down a bunt.
Kaz Matsui...So bad he is behind Cairo and Anderson apparently.
M. Olivo...So bad Dan Wilson beats him out.
