Halladay in the 6th round (14-teamer); Lyon off waivers opening week.
... still waiting for the hitters to come around, though :-o.

Traded M. Mulder and J. Thome to get T. Hudson and D. Lee. That would have to be my favorite, although picking up Hafner off waivers on the 29th for my Util. slot would be a close second, since he has homered in the last three games since then. ;-D

My #2 would be trading M. Young and D. Willis for Tejada but it's a distant second because it was in a casual friends league with a guy who has a boner for Dontrelle Willis. It is a great example of "selling high" though.

Haven't made many deals thus far, mostly because it's damn hard to trade when everyone in the league knows what they're doing. :-b However, my best trade by far was sending Jason Schmidt packing for Jake Peavy and J.D. Drew. Ah, yes, I love that one, and I usually don't like being on the business end of a 2-for-1. :-D

i like trading pierre and johnson after johnson's first two solid starts fora then struggling manny, injured prior, and bonderman. manny heated up right away and prior pitched 3 straight great games before the last one. hopefully i'll still be happy about that one at the end of the season. grabbing harden and burnett in most of my drafts has been pretty sweet too. o yeah, picking up barmes as well.

My best ones are getting Lyon and Turnbow off the wire. My leagues veto all my trades so I have to do all my moves on the WW.

Getting Lyon in all my leagues. :-)

Currently building up a nice, comfortable lead in saves, and then will spin him off for whatever I need. B-)
