Chris Young
Brett Myers
Yhency Brazoban*
Brandon Lyon
Cliff Floyd

This girl, Racheal. Man, she was hot, and I wanted to pick her up so badly, but all of my friends told me she was just a player, so I stayed away from her.

Ensberg and Myers as free agents are the two that come to mind most.

Gave Willis away for next to nothing before the season started.

Dropped Inge before the season started, but I have Pierzynski off FA so I'm not really complaining with that.

Brazoban and Matt Morris (although it was at the start of the year when he was still on the DL). Another guy beat me to it. I had Huston Street but dropped him well before he became the closer (non-keeper, though).
