Do You Draft Players You Hate?

I was watching Brett Myers pitch recently, and explained to my wife that I am not a fan given his off-the-field transgressions.  I then realized that Myers played a role in one of my fantasy championships this year.  Snagged him off the waiver wire and he went on a nice run. How do I reconcile this?

It is a typical element of my trash talk - rip on another guy for drafting one of the jerks of the game while quietly adding Elijah Dukes to my roster.  I'm also quick to draft White Sox players despite being a Cubs fan.

Do you avoid players because you dislike them?  I usually disregard all personal feelings and treat each player as a set of stats.  But in time, I come to root for my players and that's hard to do when you hate a guy.
