Anyone who drafted Uribe or Figgins is looking pretty dumb right now. That was me, on both accounts. Hitting 9th is fantasy baseball torture. :-P

Remains to be seen how bad this is, but Burrell got dropped in my league after day 1, I picked him up and he's started ever since.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Last year I dropped Beltre a week into the season. Beat that.

This one guy must really hate Mark Teixeira. Two trades involving him have been vetoed.

Teixeira for Randa
Teixeira for Brandon Lyon

Just offered him Dimitri Young for Podsednik...

none yet so far, but I dropped javy lopez for his big hr year, then dropped victor who was starting slow last year. The same guy got him both times, and beat me one year, almost beat me the other year.

Time will tell if that really was a bad move. Giambi is looking awful.

I dropped Dimitri Young about 2 minutes before the season started and picked up Dallas McPherson on a hunch. Ouch!

How many leagues have seen Barry Bonds dropped?

He hit the waiver wire. The owner didn't even traded him for anyone! :-D
