Won’t Get Fooled Again

10 baseball players I will not draft ever again:

  1. Ian Kinsler
    The guy rakes, but he guarantees to get significantly injured every season.
  2. Daisuke Matsuzaka
    I don’t care that he won 18 games. I need to see that damn gyro ball before I draft him.
  3. A.J. Burnett
    Needs to change his first name to BJ, because he sucks!
  4. Mark Teixeira
    I can’t have a guy on my team that I want to punch in the face every time I see his stupid mug.
  5. Josh Hamilton
    See Kinsler, Ian
  6. Pablo Sandoval
    I would have been ecstatic if Kung Fu Panda hit his weight in batting average (.375). Unfortunately I don’t see him ever hitting over .230
  7. Chipper Jones
    Dude, grown men aren’t called Chipper. Your name is Larry.
  8. Nelson Cruz
    He once pulled 3 hamstrings in one game. Guaranteed to get hurt every year.
  9. James Shields
    Total doucher. Enough said.
  10. Albert Pujols
    Complete waste of talent. This guy will never amount to anything. I highly recommend that no one picks this guy.¬†You’ll be sorry if you do!

By the way, The Foul Line is now on Facebook, THE place for fantasy smack talk.

    Back off Dave, if Kinsler is going to tease any team with expectations and then get hurt, again, its going to be Rays Those Cowbells. Kinsler is mine.

  2. Dave Says:

    He’s all yours Dan!

  3. allan Says:

    im sorry but if pujols is there anywhere after the 1st or second pick my god im taking him with the quickness n hamilton ill take with the quickness anywhere after the 3rd round. n come on lay off chipper bro thats my boy. if anything start crackin on dumb ass beckett for gettin smacked in the mugg with a ball standing in the outfield lol.

  4. allan Says:

    by the way a guy u should put on ur list is fuckin john lackey. he almost fucked my season up last year I thought I got a steal in last years draft when I got him….my god big mistake

  5. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Lol Dave was being sarcastic about Pujols. And im surprised Manny isnt on this list Dave, I know how much you love Manny. And Damon, and Roger Clemens.

  6. Dave Says:

    I thought about adding Manny, but there’s a slIght chance I still take him.
    I hope neither one of you two take Beckett and Lackey, I think they’re gonna bounce back.
    Of course I was bring sarcastic about Pujols.. Allan you’ll figure out my writing style pretty quick.
    Please do me a favor and watch the swearing- I never know who’s reading this stuff.
    Thanks!

    Chipper still sucks

  7. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Manny 2-2 with an RBI today in his debut. The floodgates are open, underestimate the Rays at your own peril. I still dont believe you will take Manny, i would have to see that one to believe it.

    Dan “Beckett will bounce back, but Lackey sucks” Mckewen

  8. Dave Says:

    Also don’t forget to check out the foulline on Facebook. Theres going to be extra features and plenty of fantasy smack talk. Please remember to “like” it and send it to your friends that enjoy baseball.
    Thanks

  9. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Your a little late Dave, I already liked it. Im good like that.

  10. Dave Says:

    Lackey still won 14 games last year. Not bad for a #4 starter.
    Crazier things have happened… Manny could be a Yankeehater. It’s not like my team is called the Rayshaters.

  11. Dave Says:

    Thanks Dan! Spread the word… I’d love to have all your friends keep up with the Yankeehaters dominating RTC’s. Lol

  12. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Oh Lackey will get his share of wins. Burnett won 10 last year. Having a great offense is a wonderful thing. But ill bet anything his ERA is over 4.50 and he loses 10+ games. And of course your the Yankeehaters. Its the greatest rivalry in sports. Nobody writes books about Rays/Red Sox.

    Dan “A rod is making 30 million this year, Longoria 950,000″ Mckewen

  13. Dave Says:

    Crazy thought of the day: A-Rod will have a better season then Longoria.
    I don’t like it either

  14. allan Says:

    oh sorry bout that dave I completely understand wont happen again

  15. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Longoria is 25 in his prime, coming off a career year with career highs in batting average, OBP, 46 doubles, 15 steals. A rod is like 68 years old playing on one leg. A rod might have more homers. Thats about it. You can have A Rod, ill take Longoria. Sound good?

  16. allan Says:

    well im sorry to tell u dave but the only thing ppl r gonna be checking up on ur facebook foulline page is allan aka toppin da chartz str8 domination lol

  17. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    My year guys. My year. I have figured out the cause of my late season collaspes, and have fixed the problem accordingly. And Mike is pretty focused this year too so he could be a problem. Its gonna be the best thefoulline.com league yet. That im very confident of.

  18. Dave Says:

    Fun fact: A-Rod had 8 more home runs and 20 more RBI’s in 14 less games then Longoria last year. I think ARod is a douche, but I also think Longoria is a bit overrated. He started off great last year, but really faded in the second half. Which leads me to this questiion: Is Evan Longoria a first round pick in fantasy baseball? I got him last year with the 19th pick.
    Also, i have never been more prepared for baseball as I am this year. I feel bad for everyone else in the league.

  19. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Carlos Pena couldnt hit anything last year. Teams pitched around Longoria every single game. The fact that he set career highs in everything except home runs and RBIs speaks to how good a player he is. A Rod had Cano hitting behind him all year. Even if Manny isnt productive, just the name alone will get Longoria more pitches to hit. Young pitchers still know who Man-Ram is. Longoria’s homers will be back over 30 this year, and he will have 120 RBIs while hitting .300. Damon is not in Carl Crawfords league, but he is way better at getting on base than CC. More RBIs chances for Longo, less being pitched around.

  20. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Not to mention, Longoria set a career high in walks and a career low in strikeouts. All the signs point to him progressing just fine as a hitter. He’s still a young hitter, this is only his 4th year. He’ll put it all together.

  21. allan Says:

    well I think a-rod has alot to prove this year n he is in for a great season everybody keeps talking trash about him and he’s been working pretty hard to get better. whenever a player gets into his 30′s n they come into the year in better shape than there prior I get the feeling he has that chip on his shoulder and a-rod is the wrong guy u want working hard and actually caring. sometimes when ur a superstar n ur living the lime life u tend to forget about workout and tend to fall of a bit and u dont really notice it until u get that reality check n I think he got his. longoria is early in his prime but he’s in a position where he’s gonna have to carry in team n sometimes that kinda stress can mess up ur numbers not saying its going to happen but there a big difference when u have a great pitching staff and bullpen to back u up like last season. look at him against texas in the playoffs he had strikeout fever until it didnt matter than he got hot.

  22. Dave Says:

    Do you take him in the first round?

  23. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Anywhere before pick 6, no. From picks 7-10, if some guys I want are already gone, I would have no problem taking him in round one. And Allan I hear what your saying about A Rod, but I just think he is in the downswing of his career. Remember when LaDainian Tomlinson was telling everyone who would listen he was motivated and ready to prove everyone wrong? That didnt go so well. And Longoria went a combined 6-10, with a homer, 3 doubles and 5 RBIs in games 3 and 4, in Texas, with the Rays facing elmination… Those games mattered for sure. Cliff Lee was that series. Best of 5 sucks. The first round should be best of 7. In every sport.

  24. Dave Says:

    Nicely put Allan. Thanks.
    Question for you: As a Braves fan , how excited are you about Dan Uggla joining the team? That guys numbers at Atlanta’s field is outrageous. I love the deal for the Braves. I think this deal flew under the radar as far as offseason moves went.

  25. allan Says:

    after our numbers our offense put up in the 2010 postseason n the crappy finnish we had blowing the nl east lead it was a GREAT deal for us especially with a young heywerd in our lineup n teams r gonna start pitching around brian mccan who has been our best clutch bat….really who wouldnt love adding 30 hr’s and 90+ rbi’s our lineup is growing. I think we have been afraid to give out big money ever since that crappy mike hampton deal that is still haunting us

  26. allan Says:

    im just saying dan u cant be ur teams best player and decide to become clutch in games 3,4,5. thats when that what if factor comes in…what if he was clutch in games 1 and 2? maybe u get back to the world series u never know.

  27. Unsportsmanmike Says:

    Hello my fellow fantasy players! I’m excited and ready for another baseball season to start. I look forward to actually being competetive this season, and drafting my OWN dominant UNsportsmanmike team and having a little more fun this year.

  28. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Nice analysis Allan, Uggla IS a great pickup for Atlanta. I know its early guys, but with me going to Port Charlotte Thursday, im in the baseball vibe. Here are my predictions for the 2011 season. Let me know what you guys think.

    American League:

    AL East: Boston Red Sox

    AL Central: Chicago White Sox

    AL West: Texas Rangers

    AL Wild Card: Minnesota Twins

    AL MVP: Joe Mauer (He’s healthy, and will hit .370)

    AL CY Young: Jon Lester ( This has been my pick 3 years running, this year he comes through)

    AL ROY: Jeremey Hellickson

    AL Comeback player of the year: Dustin Pedrioa ( He’s healthy, great all around production)

    AL Bold Prediction of the Year: The Yankees and Rays both miss the playoffs, and the wild card comes from outside the AL East for only the 5th time.

    National League:

    NL East: Philadelphia Phillies

    NL Central: Milwaukee Brewers

    NL West: Colorado Rockies

    NL Wild Card: Atlanta Braves

    NL MVP: Troy Tulowitski

    NL CY Young: Roy Halladay

    NL ROY: Freddie Freeman ( This Braves rookie is the real deal, Allan remember this name, this guy is the white Heyward)

    NL Comeback Player of the Year: Chipper Jones (You heard it here first)

    NL Bold Prediction of the Year: The defending world series champion San Francisco Giants, hurt by a lack of offense, miss the postseason after losing the NL West to the Rockies.

    Well those are my predictions after plugging the numbers into the Dan Super Computer, let me know what you think, or if you have your own predictions!

  29. Dave Says:

    Glad you’re back Mike! Everyone is ramped up and ready to roll. This year is going to be our best one yet. Let’s just hope the Love Boat Captains don’t kick all of our asses for the third year in a row.

  30. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Then what are you waiting for Mike? Sign up before your spot is takin!

    Dan “The Pirates have a better chance of winning the world series than Unsportmanmike has of beating Rays Those Cowbells even once this year” Mckewen

  31. allan Says:

    dang strong words lol. hey dan this isnt fantasy football u wont play mike twice you’ll play hime like 4 times lol

  32. allan Says:

    dave…. other trades fell under the radar as well like the brewers scooping up greinke and shaun marcum giving them a legit rotation. it just seems like if ur not the yankees , red sox or phillies nobody cares about trades and pick ups

  33. Dave Says:

    I agree Allan. Those two guys moving to the National League is no joke. Dont sleep on the Brewers this year, they may be really good.

  34. old man river Says:

    hey whats it spring break all the middle school kids are on foulline

  35. Dave Says:

  36. ALBERT DESALVO Says:

    GREETING from cell 33. nice piece mr yankeehater. is it spring already? wow i have been in lock down for awhile. some rule abut concsealed weapons look for to watching your league this year and little 16 year GINGER BEAT YOUR ASSES..

  37. BOSTON BAD BOYS Says:

    BUSY NIGHT. NO FOOLING AROUND THIS OLD MAN IS GOING TO WIN THIS YEAR…if DAN WINS I AM GOING TO FANTASY CHECKERS.. i CAN HARDLY WAIT TO PICK MY EXCELLENT TEAM THIS YEAR . IF CHIPPER WAS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE HE WOULD BE A GREAT PICK AS A D H. BUT HIS EVERY DAY PLAYING TIME IS OVER.. WELL ALL YOU LITTLE SQUIRTS STUDY HARD CAUSE DRAFT DAY IS COMING SOON.. AND THE YANKEEHATERS WACK IT! do i have to go on line to sign up ,i thought it was automatic!

  38. Dave Says:

    Boston Brainiacs… Of course you have to go online to sign up! Ginger sent you the link.

  39. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Give him a break Dave, they didnt have computers when he was growing up. They didnt even have baseball lol.

  40. allan Says:

    lmao

  41. Dave Says:

    Hey Dan, your prediction post was stuck in Internet limbo and has finally found it’s way to the comment section.
    I like your predictions. I agree with all the Division winners. I don’t necesasarily agree with the Mauer for MVP or Larry Jones for Comeback player of the year, but I guess those two guys are as good as anyone.
    Here’s my quick award predictions- with very little thought going into it:
    AL MVP. Robinson Cano
    NL MVP. Ryan Braun
    AL Cy Young. Justin Verlander
    NL Cy Young. Roy Halladay

  42. Dan the #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Thanks Dave. I thought it got deleted and was gone forever. I was going to pick Braun for MVP, but if Braun wins the MVP the year after RTC drafted him im going to be very upset.

    Dan “The AL East winners in my prediction can eat it, but that doesnt mean they dont look good on paper” Mckewen

  43. allan Says:

    hey dave we both picked verlander for the al cy young

    AL MVP- MIGUEL CRABRERA

    NL MVP- CHASE UTLEY

    AL CY YOUNG- JUSTIN VERLANDER

    NL CY YOUNG- ZACH GREINKE
