Traded Thome for Ensberg in fear of Thome getting injured thinking I was selling high.

I dropped Jered Weaver when he was sent down in one of my leagues, thinking I could get him back when he was called back up. How wrong I was.

Played Brian Fuentes tonight when my ERA for the was at 2.12 and my WHIP was at .89 (H2H). Completely wasted Kamzir and Lackey's great weeks, and my opponent has Cordero so I am not even going to win Win's this week. :~(

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

Oops.


Same here. :-[


Here here...I have a feeling this may be the last time I'll EVER own him too!!! His stock is just so high right now...
If you can help:

In April I declined this trade (and I have Varitek) --Keeper

I give:
McCann

I get:
Jared Weaver

Points geared heavy towards pitching. KILLER! Huge Mistake! Like a kick to the pickle.

You think I would have learned, but the same damn thing happened when I was ready to add Verlander. I had waited two days until he completed a start in early May and then was about to add him when I went to the Cafe again, and same result. :~(


I added Pap as soon as he walked to the mound, and I bet I wouldn't have gotten him if I'd waited much longer.

Cut Francoeur

Didn't pick up Bedard

Didn't use my #2 waiver on Harang, instead I used it to pick up Hamels. :-P

I traded for Burrell a month ago, when I was going to pick up Ibanez as a FA. We all know how thats worked out so far. :-P :-P

Using my #1 waiver priority on Chad Billingsley (then watching other better pitchers like Jared Weaver get picked up off waivers in the following weeks)

Oh crap. Forgot I dropped Jered Weaver too. I traded him in another league a week before he was sent down for Richie Sexon. Still waiting to see if that goes down as dumb.


Where are all the people who used their number 1s on Cole Hamels? Step forward.
