Count me among the droppers of both Longoria and Ellsbury.

April 4th drop Jacoby Ellsbury, add Hiroki Kuroda

May 16th drop Evan Longoria, add Justin Duchsherer (in and of itself not so bad, but I had others I could have dropped), while Evan was hitting .210/.309/.381

These were offset by two great adds

April 5th drop Scott Baker, add Shaun Marcum

April 7th drop Manny Parra, add Chad Billingsley

Longoria hurts worse than Ellsbury because I am lapping the field in Rs in my 6x6 roto and am comfortably in 4th of 12 in SBs. I'm in first overall, so neither hurts that bad.

No offense to the posters in this thread, but I would love to play in some of your leagues. Can't believe the quality of the FA market in some of these leagues! :-L The best I could pick up in my league is Hermida ... :-C

Dropped Soto about three weeks in the season for Bengie Molina.

Oh, I also dropped Longoria, but I have Lowell and Chipper so I don't think it was that bad.

In a 20 team dynasty I have dropped these guys within the last two years

Jonathon Sanchez
Yunel Escobar
Manny Parra
Alexei Ramirez

The Sanchez drop hurts the most for me. I jumped on that guy way before anyone else knew about him before he ever got called up to the bigs LAST year. I stuck with him during his bullpen struggles and his demotion. He survived the end of season roster cut. Then I drop him 2 weeks into the season this year. I feel like such a schmuck, somebody else is reaping my reward and now he won't give the guy up.

I have the worst drop of all... Josh Hamilton. Picked him up in the 18th round, and I have no idea why I did that. I guess I wasn't happy with 30 rbis after April.
