The best move I made was signing up for my first season of fantasy baseball 6 or 7 years ago...
And building a SP Voltron.
That goes without saying aussie...
Patterson was replaced on my roster with Eveland, so...that's turned out well so far.
Prior has had setbacks...most likely won't be relevant, but you never know.
Carpenter is progressing as well as I could have hoped.
Burnett is starting to pitch much better.
RJ is also coming around.
With Verlander, Maine, and G. Smith rounding out my starting staff I should be fine...
With Patterson's demotion the DL Voltron abomination can't be assembled...Patterson can't hit the MLB DL while in the minors. And while I kept him on my team for a while as a source of inspiration, I eventually had to cut him loose.
You guys are lucky, because as you know...if they had all hit the DL at the same time, the DL Voltron would have spontaneously destroyed my competition. Anyway, I'm really liking my team in that league now...and I'm in first in my other Cafe league, so I must be doing something right so far.
Back on topic, I've made some good moves over the years, but the one that sticks out in my mind was pretty small - D. Moss for M. Clement around the allstar break in a 20 team league...I believe Moss was actually an allstar that year and Clement was sucking, but after the break Clement solidified my pitching and helped me run away with the league...sweetness! I remember it almost got vetoed because everyone thought I was getting screwed over...I had to write on the message board why I was doing the trade.
