I'm in a 11 team, auction/draft league-no waiver wire. We have a 3 round mid-season supplemental draft also.
I drafted Hansen as a backup to Foulke before the year started. No drops, so I was stuck with him for the year. Obviously, he was just taking up space.
The team I traded with tried to draft Hansen with his first pick of the mid-season 3 round draft, not realizing I had him. The owner lives in Massachusetts, I guess a Sox fan.
He drafted Hamels in the 2nd round-he was still available. I offered him Hansen right after the draft for Hamels, and he jumped at it.
Hamels will only cost 3 bucks for next year. Kind of makes up for my trading Howard (15bucks 2 yr.) and Crede (5 bucks) in June for Pujols (can't keep), VMart (can't keep) and Napoli (1 buck).
