AL Catcher: John Buck, KC - .227 BA, .265 OBP, 6 HR, 20 RBI, 49 K, .620 OPS
My other pick would be Miguel Oliva of Seattle, but he lost the starting job to Pat Borders last month.

AL 1B: Travis Lee, TB - .235 BA, .317 OBP, 2 HR, 19 RBI, .647 OPS
I know he's not the fan favorite like Giambi, but man does he suck for a 1B.

Add either Bret Boone or Mark Belhorn at second base.

Can't we just list the entire Kansas City Royals roster and close this thread?

Royals have Sweeney, Emil Brown, and Mike MacDougal.

So the answer is. No.



I will add Jose Lima though.

NL gaps to fill:

1B: JT Snow (.287/2/19) -- we're counting offense only right?
3B: Mike Lowell (.224/3/32) or David Bell (.253/5/29)
OF: Austin Kearns (.224/6/25), sent to minors
OF: Brian Jordan (.244/3/23)
OF: Michael Tucker (.261/3/24)

I need players that are active/everyday players. Nobody on the DL, DFA'd, or benchers. Once I get the roster set......I'm going to have these chumps do a 1 week H2H to see who wins.....errr...I mean....loses. The point is to lose!!!!

......I guess I need to take Foulke out now (DL).

Think of this in terms of Omaha Hi-Lo. We are playing the low hand. We want the team who is going to hit the fewest HR's, get the lowest BA, have the highest ERA, etc.


this should be fun.

NL LF - Chris Burke, Hou - .239 BA, .297 OPS, 1 HR, 11 RBI, although he's currently got a 10 game hit streak going where he gets exactly one hit per game. Might be a risk

NL CF maybe Tike Redman, Pit - Batting a respectable .275 but only 2 HR and 16 RBI

It's tough to find starting outfielders that really suck.

I would also set the criteria that the players need to have over 200 AB or 60 games played.

Don't look now, but Giambi has hit 4 homers in the last 3 games.


I'm looking for players who've hit maybe 4 homers in the last 3 months.

Austin Kearns... no... wasn't starting everyday, and was undeservingly sent down. He's killing the ball in triple A. .. JT Snow... .362 OBP, Tucker .759 OPS... there are worst candidates out there. DENIED BITCH!


Corey Patterson, Steve Finley, Jason Phillips [for 1b]

I watch the Cubs everyday and would have to go with Corey Patterson. .270 OBP, 82K's in 82 Games, 24 RBI's, will swing at any pitch within 10 feet of home plate.

Manager: Dusty Baker. For his persistance in putting Corey in the lead off spot (finally came to his senses on that), not playing Todd Walker consistently, jacking with the batting order everyday, and just being an all around jackass.

Sean Burroughs 3B. Check the stats. Horrible offensive numbers.

Patterson was sent to triple-A yesterday. Thus he's not eligible to play on our team.

OBP and OPS are not registered categories for a 5x5 H2H matchup.

And Kearns was sent down because he sucks.

the AL roster so far seems a lot stronger than the NL. If we want the AL to win, we must "dummy down" the lineup.

NL is full of pitchers parks and pitchers that bat 9th.

AL has DH's and hitters parks.

You'd expect the AL to be better

If he isn't coaching little league by now, he has to be a contender for worst SP.

*edit* Holy f'ing shit. I went on the Diamondback's site after posting this out of curiousity. I see he's pitching their next game on their main page. Then I see his ERA. 7.78. Holy shit. He's still pitching, and he's got a 7.78 ERA? ... Yeah, I think he wins the SP spot for the NL.

If you don't believe me, click on this... http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/...567&statType=2 He had a 14.29 ERA in one game! And the game before that, a 10.80 ERA. The game after that? 11.74.

How the hell could any team have this guy still starting? Did Vargas assasinate all the other Diamondback pitchers to remain in the starting rotation? I pity you Diamondback fans for having to put up with this loser.
No, you are looking at this information the wrong way. He had a 10+ ERA when coming to the Dbacks. He has since lowered it to 7 something. Since he's been put into the starting roll, he's won all the games he's started, except last night, but it was an 8 inning, 1 run gem. He's been doing fantastically.

That's because you've refused to put in any Yankee besides Womack.
