Dumbest thing you've done all season?

Dropped Hanley Ramirez when Brian Roberts went on the DL because I needed a replacement 2B.

Luckily, I picked the right one in Dan Uggla (over Brandon Phillips and Josh Barfield). My reasoning: I thought Uggla would be the easiest one to drop when it came time to reactivate Roberts. I could've used the steals from Ramirez, but Uggla has more than made up for it in other areas, while I've held my own in SBs without Ramirez. And, Uggla is still playing 2B for me, with Roberts at MI.

Lets see...Drafted Peralta. Passed on Thome and Magglio Ordonez in all my drafts. Dropped Liriano in the beginning of the year. Other than that...all my moves have been fantastic.

Drafted Liriano, held onto him for a while. Cut him loose b/c he was taking up a bench spot.

Oops.


Same here. :-[

This is bad, really really bad... I needed a roster spot bad so I dropped Weaver when he was sent down thinking I would get him back as soon as I could. He was claimed off waivers. :~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~(
