I haven't made any FA pickups that are worth mentioning and I haven't made a trade yet (though I need to do something about getting another closer), so I guess my best moves so far were drafting Willis in the 16th round and Ensberg in the 19th.

Actually, Ensberg was luck. I needed a backup third baseman, he was available so I grabbed him. Just pure, dumb luck (which I'll take any day).

Traded Carlos Lee and Eric Chavez for Hideki Matsui and Derrek Lee about two months ago. The move was great for the obvious reasons, but was made even better when I picked Morgan Ensberg off the waiver wire to replace Chavez. His first day on my team was his 3 homer game against the Giants. ;-D ;-D ;-D

Signing up for one league and then missing the draft. The way most of my drafts went this year, that seems to have been my best move.... ;-7 :-b

I traded Brian Roberts. Here's the deal:

I gave up Brian Roberts, Billy Wagner, Yhency Brazoban, and Mike Cameron. I got Carlos Delgado, Brad Lidge, and Mark Mulder. Then I picked up Chase Utley off of FA. I've been extremely happy with the trade since. :-B

HA HA! I know what you mean. My 2002 draft would've been better if I'd stayed home to sleep off my hangover and filled my roster with whatever was left over. !+)
