Roto League

Hitting
MVP's
Braun/Pena......I can't pick just 1. My offense started off so bad...dead last in my league and really took off when I added both of these studs.

Duds
Hafner/Swisher/Weeks/Hall/Damon......You can see why I needed Braun and Pena to step up. I traded half of these guys for players that ended up doing better.

Pitching
MVP- It would have been Peavy but I traded him for offense when I was hurting in that department.....But I'm picking Kelvim Escobar over Cole Hamels because I got Escobar in the 27th round. Hamels in the 13th.

Duds
Fuentes/Gagne
I traded Fuentes for Lidge right before Fuentes started tanking so I'm happy about that...Gagne I dropped shortly after he was traded to Boston.

I don't know who to list

Holliday? Miggy? Vladdy? Russell Martin because of his value(211)? C.C. for his value(70)? Erik Bedard for his value(131? Fausto Carmona for his value(FA)?

Busts I would say Jason Bay, Rich Harden, Felipe Lopez, and Julio Lugo.

BTW, my championship team is exactly why you don't take pitching early I have 3 top pitchers C.C., Bedard, Carmona, and not 1 of em I got before pick 70.

Offensive MVP: Braun carried my team from near the bottom in most offensive categories to middle of the pack, which was enough to get me the championship. Sadly, he is an 11th round keeper next year, but I traded him for Reyes and Webb (neither can be kept) in mid-August to win this year, which it turns out I didn't need to do.

Pitching MVP: Sabathia carried my pitching staff, as an 8th round pick.

LVP: I'll give the nod to Michael Young for drafting him in the 3rd round. He turned it on in September, but I never played him because I had to trade for Reyes.

Unsung heroes: J. Shields, J. Soria (stopgap when BJ Ryan went out), Uggla, Granderson, Hawpe (picked up as a free agent).

My MVP is Byrnes even though I also had Holliday, Wright, and Braun. Byrnes turned in 30 unexpected SB that really helped me win.

My LVP is tie: Damon/Furcal

I guess rollins for MVP. I had Howard and Pujols to start (keeper, i got Howard off of waivers his ROY year), and ended up moving pujols, smoltz and a closer for miggy pena and bonds, so in a way Pena was a big help to me. but i think Rollins did more than I anticipated.

Bust? I guess it was Pujols, but I moved him.. It's weird I didn't really have an outright bust this year, where someone totally messed the bed.

Season MVP would probably be Jose Reyes. That guy could flat carry a team in 2 or 3 categories.
Finals MVP is unquestionably Javier Vazquez - 3-0, 2.38era, 0.88whip, 13.10k/9 over the 2 week finals. Even Jim Thome's .360/12/6/8 line didn't match Vazquez's pure dominance.

Season LVP...hrm...there were so many. I overdrafted Anthony Reyes expecting great things and got nothing. Brad Lidge had a typical Lidge season on me. I'd probably have to go with a guy for whom I traded right after the draft though - Andruw Jones. Simply craptastic.
Finals LVP is tougher. I was quick to cut ties with anyone that was hurting my chances of winning. I'd probably give it to Pat Burrell due to my own mistakes. I cut Burrell to make a run at the sb category and during the time he was off my roster or on my bench he hit two hr's. His final line IN my lineup though was a disgusting 0.087/3/0/2 over an unfortunately large number of at bats. !+)
