Slumps and Dumps: Atkins, Hardy among early disappointments
With the season's second month nearly complete, I wanted to look back at some of the players I've profiled to see how they responded since being called out. As I reviewed the list of turds, I was struck by how many of them subsequently landed on the disabled list. In all, nine players have been left in the wake of Slumps and Dumps, presumably because their bodies were unable to withstand such high levels of ineptitude. The other explanation could be this column has become the fantasy equivalent of being on the cover of Madden.
There were times where I was right on the money and others when I wasn't. However, unlike the time I swore that Air Bud was the greatest athlete of my generation, I'm willing to admit when I'm wrong.
