Gotta eat a little crow....

I thought Jeff Davanon was a great deep sleeper that would at least platoon and be 10 HR 30 SB.

I never saw Corey's season coming and it hammered me - paid $30 for him at the draft.

I thought D'Angelo Jimenez was a solid contributor at 2B.

I thought V-Mart would have nagging injuries and get worse as the season progressed.

No way did I see Chone Figgins season coming.

I thought Contreras was garbage at traded him away at $5 for nothing before the draft.

I didn't even know Jhonny Peralta could hit 10 HR let alone 20+

Let's see, dropped Griffey Jr. a month into the season, traded Andruw Jones for Huff when both were struggling(I thought Andruw is too streaky and there is the Huff 2nd half) :-{ %-6

Didn't do too poorly considering I came in second, but:



Declined Hudson for Carpenter more than 30 times (real number)

Took Nomar third round

I started Bonderman against the Royals in the second day of the H2H Finals.

I dropped Pujols in the H2H FInals and then he hit the winning homer for my opponent..


MOre, but I forget.

Where to begin...no particular order to these disasters:
1) Helton
2) Schmidt
3) Traded Willis before the season started.
4) Dropped Peralta
5) V. Wells

and I'm sure there are more if I think about it. :~(

I "sold high" on Roger Clemens at the end of April, because there was "no way" he'd be "this good all year". :-o

Traded away Jose Contreras similarly, along with Juan Pierre, for players so bad I don't even remember who they are :*)

You have a Pujols avatar and a sig with him in the middle and you dropped him?? You might need to watch My Name is Earl to learn a little about karma. :-D
