how crazy is it that im 44.5 games out of 1st place in my 8x8 league but i dont regret any of my picks through the first 11 rounds (12th round corey patterson)...of course i have made trades throughout the season that i still feel have been good for my team but i dont know what else to do with this team.

sorry if this turned into a rant...bottom line..no regrets for me.
A good friend of mine joined my league this year. I actually sat in the same room with him and helped him through the draft because it's no fun to have one really crappy team in a competitive league.
Anyway, in the 7th round, he was trying to decide on a pick and was leaning toward some crappy closer (maybe Isrnghausen?). I think I repeated the phrase, "Take Prince Fielder or you're an idiot" five times before he finally listened and took him.
I'm in 2nd place right now. I bet you can guess who's in first...
