I sent Carl Crawford away for Peavy two weeks ago, and the day after the deal, I picked up Drew. You gotta love that.

i drank too much busch that night... which leads me to a good question, if you offer a trade under non sober conditions and its accepted, can you withdraw your trade or do you bear with it and just suck up the stupid mistake? in my case jd and hoffman for foulke and bush... (dont ask)

You should probably refrain from using the computer when hammered.

I was high on Drew coming into the season and have him in a few leagues. In one league I took Drew and Bradley with back-to-back picks in the 17th and 18th rounds of a 14-team league. At the time everyone was criticizing the picks...now I have two of the current top 20 OFs.

Not sure why you would be ridiculed for those picks. Not like those guys are short on talent and they seem like the perfect late picks.

I picked him up right before he caught fire in one $ league. I used my waiver on him and do not regret it one bit, he and Giambi have completely carried my team ;-D

I refused to draft him this year after I was so high on him last year and he let me down. Luckily I forgave him and picked him up two weeks ago. He is good hitter and maybe he just needed the right situation to thrive in. Either way he looks like he has turned the corner.
