2006 All-Disapointment Team
On today’s show me and Schwartz unveiled our all disappointment team for 2006. Below is the lineups with some comments. Friday we’ll give you our all-fantasy team for 2006.
Feel free to post your team and I will read some postings on the show Friday.
C: Cory and I both agreed on Jason Varitek even though we felt bad about it, but it was a good year for backstops and Tek when healthy stunk.
1B: We both agreed on Mark Teixeira. He was the anti-Howard. Tex may have gone as high as 3rd overall and he did not deliver.
2B: Cory went with Marcus Giles. I went with Mark Loretta. Right handed in that park and you don’t sniff 10 homers?
SS: Both agreed on Jhonny Peralta. Less homers, huge drop in average and increase in strikeouts. No bueno.
3B: We both agreed on Hank Blalock. If not for Gary Matthews Jr and Mark DeRosa the Rangers may not have scored this year. Only kidding Michael Young fans.
OF: Cory went Kevin Mench, Randy Winn and Shawn Green. I agreed on Mench who had 7 good days, but I took Chone Figgins and Brad Wilkerson. Figgins was a second rounder in most leagues and he hit, stole and scored less then 2005.
SP: A total of three here. Randy Johnson, Jake Peavy and Felix Hernandez. I thought King Felix was a reach because I wasn’t that high on him, but Cory is right that a lot of others were and he just wasn’t that good overall.
Closer: Brad Lidge. Enough said.
We both agreed that Teixeira is the "all-star" of this squad
