Bias, must be checked at the door.

Im the biggest Beckett homer you will see, but someone got him in the draft over me. as tempted as I am to just overpay and get him. I don't.

Roy Oswalt

He's been on pretty much all my teams and always my main league.

Gotta love the Wizard.

Johan. I grabbed him in mid-2002 (for holds and ratios in a deep-roster, 16-team league) and picked him up again every season through '05.

This spring, he was taken by our resident Yankees fan two picks after I selected ARod second overall. The trade potential is palpable, but I've managed to hold out.

i think this is going away from the original question. you guys are naming players like sizemore, johan, and abreu. these guys are amazing fantasy players that would be hard to trade regardless.

I tend to gravitate to the older players with less potential but stable numbers. Moises Alou is a big one for me. I love me some Biggio too. That being said, I'd still deal them if someone came to me with a lopsided deal in my favor.

Mo Vaughn. Hasn't done much for me lately, but I'm thinking he will turn it around soon. Oddly enough, no one seems interested in him, which is good because there is no way I would trade him.

Now that's true dedication. Awesome.

For me, it's Santana. I have him on all of my three teams and will continue to draft him well before the experts say he should be taken.
