6 Fantasy Pitcher Busts We’re Hoping Others Draft In 2017

COVER 2017 Fantasy Bust Pitcher Candidates - Rob Foldy

We all love Fantasy Baseball sleepers – whether it’s talking about them, drafting them or trading for them. But when you dip your toes into the other pool – finding 2017 Fantasy Baseball busts – things turn ugly quickly.

For sleepers, you’re generally talking about players in a positive sense, that they’re going to outplay what we all think they’re capable of, so everyone is happy to read it. If they own any of the players you mentioned as sleepers, they’re even happier.

But when you write an article about prospective Fantasy pitchers busts – everyone hates you. Fantasy owners that might have liked these pitchers hate you, Fantasy owners that already drafted these pitchers hate you, and in the off chance these pitchers read this, they hate you.

You’re essentially saying these players are not going to be as good as everyone thinks – a very negative thing to say! So it’s understandable that few people like to write these pieces.

Except me. ‘Cuz I’m a jerk.
