i get skeptical with pitchers as well, so chalk up another vote on prior. i do believe in harden though. my oaklandness wont allow me not too.
I need more managers for my league. "BassBallers Funk Frenzy" on Rotohog.com

Basically anyone who's burned me in past years...someone I may have speculated on, someone who got injured on me, or someone who inexplicably got worse. I'd still take these players, but at a bigger bargain rate than most.

These players include:
Hank Blalock (last 2 years)
Aubrey Huff
Coco Crisp
Austin Kearns
Mark Prior
Jose Valverde
Adrian Beltre
Daniel Cabrera
Chad Orvella
Shawn Green

Mike Cameron and Torii Hunter. Hate, hate, hate. They suck two-thirds of the year and the one-third they put up all their numbers they're invariably on my bench. I've deleted both from my cheat sheets because I have such a strong aversion to them.

Cameron was pretty consistent last season. Look at his splits.

I absolutely hate 1 category killers and I stay away from them unless I get an absolute steal ( at least 2 rounds above where they usually go). The players I'm talking about would be Wang and Dunn. Also staying away from Felipe Lopez, Andruw Jones (he goes way too high), Pierre (again too high and 3 category player rather get Roberts way later), and Thomas.

Now that is a great reason to avoid a player who can potentially help you win your league. ;-7

I agree with what Yoda said earlier, I really don't think you can avoid a player just for the sake of doing it. Guys like Dunn and Blalock are kind of slipping in drafts....I'd take both of them with middle round picks.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Why Lopez? Once he gets 5 games at 2B he is great! Honestly he isn't too bad as a SS either. In rounds 7+ I think he is a good choice.
