Soriano
Crawford (good, but not worth the 1st round pick I think I'd have to spend to get him again)
and of course
Harden

Most likely will never own though:

Dunn

A. Jones


I'll still take a chance on Harden. Although he'll probably be going earlier then I'll want to take him. I've been burned by him too much to take him early.

When I saw the thread, first thing I thought was Andruw Jones. I drafted him in a dynasty league this year and I'm still kicking my self for it. Unless those type of players fall far, which they don't usually do, I doubt I'll get them again.

I'm not sure I'd agree with never drafting him, since he will drop pretty far in a bunch of drafts that it might be worth taking the chance.

I was all set to take Harden EVERYTHING I read said he was looking good this Spring and he deinitely dominated during the Spring, but luckily someone picked him 3 picks before me, instead I took C.C., cha-ching. Harden, Wood and Prior all the same.

Uggla has the HRs and Runs, but it seems as though he strikes out everyother at-bat.

You forgot about RBIs. Among 2B, he's 1st in MLB in HRs and runs, and 3rd in RBIs. You don't that outweighs Ks, which only apply to a fraction of leagues? Granted, the batting average stings a bit, but I'll gladly take that tradeoff, especially when you can get him in the 7th-8th round of most drafts. He's extremely underrated.

I'll never draft Jeter. Most overrated player in baseball, fantasy or otherwise.

Todd Helton and David Bush.

They will both probably go undrafted in '08 in most leagues. !+)

Juan Pierre - I paid big time for his steals. Took me a couple months to catch in RBI categories.
Carlos Zambrano - Never owned him. Might be a post-hype sleeper, but hit walk rate scares me off.
Ben Sheets - Never will play a full season. Also, K-rate is steadily decreasing.
AJ Burnett - DL, DL....DL
Adam Dunn - Can't stomach the BA.

I don't think there is anybody that I will NEVER draft again. There are a few guys that I usually don't have on my team because they go earlier then my rankings say they should. I hardly ever draft Dunn or Pedro because they go sooner then I think they should.
