In my keeper league where we keep 14, I kept Zumaya over Isringhausen and Saito. In the 15th round, I needed to grab an MI and I went with Tadahito Iguchi over Renteria. :*)

I suppose it was taking Rolen in the 7th
but taking Rios in the 8th made up for it


also, I took Rollins with my second pick (last in the 2nd round) it was probibly a reach but its worked out well

Regrets? Carpenter, Prior, Harden, Lidge, Gagne, Patterson, Wood and Giambi all in one league. Yeah, I'm in last place.

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...

Wow... but at least you were consistent with your plan. I think you were hit with a lot of bad luck also. Sorry bro.
