I knew I was gonna hafta explain..... I made a couple of trades these boneheads actually accepted. I bought very low on David Wright. I traded Abreu at the beginning of the year for Wright when he was struggling. I originally drafted Ortiz, but this Red Sox fan traded me Oswalt and Hafner for him. I traded Dunn and JD Drew for Sizemore. The Red Sox fan dropped out of the league for some reason and dropped Morneau and I had first waiver and picked him up. I forget who I traded back for Crawford... I think a couple of pitchers. I drafted Webb I think in the 3rd round. I traded Sheets for Zambrano, and the owner dropped Sheets, so I picked him back up. I had Derrek Lee, and Clemens, and packaged them with Hafner for A-Rod. Also at the beginning of the year, I traded Thome and K-Rod for Utley and Nathan. Some of these trades were actually offered to me.


wow and i thought i made some great trades...

how many 10-0 weeks do you have? how many games are you up on second place?

and yes holliday is awesome. i have a man crush on him :)


In my league there are 12 stats. I only have 1 12-0 weeks but I have a lot of 10-2, 8-3, 9-2, etc. I am 8 games in front, and I too have a man crush on Holliday.

I've had a man crush ever since I drafted Holliday in the 15th round last year.

I recently got Holliday AND Carlos Lee for Troy Glaus and Nick Swisher! :B

The other owner offered me Lee for Glaus/Swisher but planned to DROP Holliday! :*) When I saw that, I asked him to toss Holliday in as part of the deal - no way I'd get him through waivers - and he agreed.

Lee has been slumping a bit since I got him, but MH is kicking butt. I couldn't possibly be happier with this trade since I know Lee will be rocking again soon...

I think most leagues have their share of morons. He's the only completely clueless player I've found so far - the others are mostly on the ball. It's not like EVERYONE is like this guy - he's unique! :B

But I agree - if I could make trades like this with everyone and amass a perfect team, there'd be no challenge...

I agree he is the Most Underrated Player in baseball, he is a STUD and should be starting in the All Star Game I have voted countless times for him, so far. I was happy to see John Kruk give a Shout-out to him last night saying he is the best OF in the NL, which is true.

He is also my Favorite Player ;D

I heard Kruk tonite on BBTN give him a shout-out and I couldn't agree with him more. The future of baseball for years to come. Did you see the blast he hit tonite?
