I just picked up wolf of the WW, which wouldn't seem like a huge steal but it's a 20 team league, ollie perez is my highest scoring pitcher.

BJ Upton, James Shields, Lincecum, and Hunter Pence. All saving my ass with Mauer, Howard, Glaus, and Hafner all underachieving for one reason or another...

I'm so mad I missed out on Peralta. He was so quietly heating up that he flew completely under my radar. I didn't see any news or any threads in the cafe (maybe this was my fault) on him so I was totally oblivious :-P

I've only got 10 WW per year and have used 6.

Snell - Traded away
Frasor - Traded away
Granderson - Traded for Rios
Wheeler - Still have, future trade bait
Matsui - Still have
Lincecum - acquired the WW pickup from another owner.
Capps - Couldn't resist, future trade bait

The market for closers is very tight, hence I had to use them on fringe closers in Frasor/Wheeler/Capps even though I'm leading the league in saves.

In my money league my three favorites are:

Josh Hamilton
Tim Lincecum
Brett Myers - Someone got impatient and dropped him two days ago. Needless to say I picked him up pronto. ;-D
