Turned down trading Alfonso Soriano for Hudson pre-season despite my bad pitching staff. Soriano is the one reason I'm still in the thing as this point. He's kept my H2H team in almost every game.

Pawned Blanton and Madson off to an owner in exchange for Santana. I don't know how I convinced him that was a good deal. He's one spot ahead of me anyway though. :-?

I traded Ty Wigginton and Jeromy Burnitz for Bartolo Colon when he was on the DL. Funny thing is, the league vetoed the trade at first, because they thought Wigginton and Burnitz were way too good for Bartolo, since they were both crushing the ball at the time. Too bad they're both sitting on the waiver wire right now. :-D

Drafted both Verlander, Kazmir & Bonderman in middle late rounds, non keeper.

Bidded $42 on Jared Weaver in non keeper league before his first start. (many probably yhtought it was too high ..we had $250 to spend during the year)

Took a chance on Papelbon when he saved that first game.

Offered a guy Chipper Jones and Prince Fielder for H Matsui. he quickly declined it, and later that night he broke his wrist!! That was the luckiest thing that happened to me.

Drafted Jered Weaver back in March. Drafted Vernon Wells somewhere around 200th overall pick (10th round).

Traded Inge, Monroe, and Nick Johnson for Berkman and A-Rod.

Traded A-Rod for Vmart and Thome.

Punted saves in the draft and never traded for a closer and I've only lost saves twice because of this forum. I guess that would be lucky.

Drafting Ortiz as my first round choice. Then picking up F. Thomas off the WW. I did drop him twice, but I'll never drop him again due to his steadily increasing numbers as of late.

Preseason I was given the option of trading either Roy Halladay or Roy Oswalt for Carl Crawford.

I chose to hold onto Halladay and trade away Oswalt for Crawford. Didn't look like that great of a deal early on, but I'm liking it now.
