Probably choosing Liriano over Kershaw a few years back %-6

Obligatory Mike Trout mistake: Not owning Mike Trout.

Well, i'm a Trout owner. Lucky me. The rest was a disaster.

Dropped Jason Kipnis for Jose Altuve earlier in the year. :-P

Dropped Mike Moustakas for Pedro Alvarez. :-P

Traded Prince Fielder and Curtis Granderson for Roy Halladay, Yu Darvish, Paul Konerko, and Logan Morrison. :-P


And yet i scratched together a 5th place showing in my standings so far.

My biggest mistake was probably drafting Desmond Jennings 4th overall. I believed all the hype, unfortunately.

I could have gotten guys like Greinke, Zimmerman, Morse, Strasburg, Cain, Gallard, Cj Wilson, Big Papi, all who went after my pick of Jennings.

What was I thinking?

Fortunately it hasn't hurt me too much since I'm in 1st place :-D .

My good luck has far outweighed my bad luck, being the owner of sleepers such as Allen Craig, Dickey and Frieri.

Braun and Mark Reynolds came up around the same time back in '07. I burned my #2 waiver on Reynolds.

Taking Ellsbury and Pedrioa with my top 2 picks in Masters. Should have known better than to take those D-bags (in hindsight, of course). Two schlubs with pulses and about 200 GP would have done me more good so far ... !+)

About a week ago I acquired Bonifacio...that turned out great as he's now likely done for the year.

Dropping Morneau for Shelton in Morneau's MVP year still chaps my hide.
This season? I'd say competing when I knew I wasn't going to give it proper attention.

I'm guessing this was a keeper league if you look at the list of guys "he coulda had" instead...that, or he meant 4th round.
