That's great so did I and I didn't need Felix to win.

I know you are lying because I picked up Peavy when he first came up and he pitched well against the Yanks in his first start but he was far from a nice snag. And I drafted Prior before he even pitched a single professional game and most people didn't even know who he was. Same with Lincecum.

Oh, yeah, I would have been better off leaving him on the WW. Yes, I also grabbed Cliff Lee off the WW and you think that didn't help me? You people are nuts and arguing the inarguable. I didn't even grab Ludwick. He isn't on my team. The point is not self justification. The point is that SO many of you just advocate sell high, sell high, sell high with reckless abandonment.
That's great. I picked up Lee, Ludwick, Quentin, Ervin, Reynolds and Chris Davis. If I can sell high on any of them (which I did with Lee for Verlander) then I will do it 10 times out of 10.

Selling high makes sense if you have a guy like Mark Reynolds or Joel Pineiro. But selling high is garbage when you have a 30 HR/100 RBI guy and the Al Cy Young.
No, selling high is the name of the game. No matter who it is, if you sell high then you will be right at least 9 times out of 10.
Buy, hey, I guess I can't expect everybody to evaluate talent properly, look at underlying numbers and determine the difference between waiver trash and the waiver gems. Not everybody is up to my level. I get it. And you all know darn well that for months I have been saying that Lee and Ludwick are legit. I have been making the exact same arguments. And for months, people keep spewing the same nonsense. You were all wrong. I am right. Thanks for playing. Hehe.
It has nothing to do with talent evaluation. If you predicted Lee and Ludwick during preseason then it is a different story. You are acting like a 5 year old who got lucky and continue to ride the hot streaky while telling everyone "I told you so". It's ridiculous really.
