that's unreal man. did you not trade some of your pitching surplus to help elsewhere or did you hold on to all of them for the whole season?


I actually only traded Bedard. At that time my team ERA and WHIP were around 1.75/1.05. I contemplated trading another pitcher but my offense was pretty good as well, and my lead was so large by the time the trading deadline came around that I decided to stay put.

This was definitely a crazy year for my team. Including my relievers, Dan Haren had the highest ERA on my team at 3.14. Offensively, I also led the league in HR and SLG (.502).

I'd also like to thank Erik Bedard for contributing to those fine ratios before being dealt for Troy Tulowitzki in late April (despite djxskillz's assertion that I shouldn't trade him because my staff "is NOT that strong").

You might also want to thank me for knocking some sense into you. B-)

My H2H league's championship matchup was ridiculously close going into the last day of the season -- 7 of the 10 categories were still pretty much up for grabs. I'd like to thank Prince Fielder (2 HR, 3 RBI), Ryan Braun (2/5, RBI, SB), Felix Hernandez (W, 6 K, 0.60 WHIP), and spot starter Homer Bailey (W, 7 K, 0.00 ERA) for bringing the goods on Sunday and helping me win the league.

I would like to thank Greinke, Jurrjens, Mauer, Cuddyer, Lester and a well-timed august trade (Rios/Blackburn for KMorales) for bringing me 2nd place.

Thank you Tim Lincecum, Zack Greinke, Felix Hernandez and Chris Carpenter for anchoring my staff.
Ryan Braun, Justin Morneau, Adrian Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, and Derek Jeter for providing my offense.

I want to give a shout out to Gordon Beckham, i was lost at third base until you came along for that scorching month and a half when it mattered most
