Worst Fantasy Move...

Postby gfantasy » Sun Aug 27, 2006 8:35 pm

We've all made them. I traded Jose Reyes for Randy Johnson last season and kick myself in the ass everyday because of it. Lets hear it owners. What was your worst move?

I bought the hype that Soriano will have a down year, so I traded:

Soriano, Damon, Ryan Howard for Oswalt, Teixiera, and Lofton

I also didnt buy the huge hype on Ryan Howard, and I thought Tex was gonna enjoy a much better season than he is having. But all-in-all, TERRIBLE trade
go 49ers!!!!!

I'm fairly calculated in my moves. But my worse move was dropping Gady Sizemore after he was sent back the minors for a spot start to win the week 3 years ago.

This year I bit the injury bug more than anything else, however if I had to choose a worst move, it was certainly dropping Orlando Hudson right before he got hot.

I also was didn't exercise my waiver position on Mark Teahen, which I now wish I had done.

My buddy had to drop 1 player earlier this season in May. Between Preston Wilson and Justin Morneau. Drops Morneau since "Wilson is going to hit mad dingers at Minute Maid" as he told me.
