this will be my third season of fantasy, and thus far i've had one trade that really stunk. early on last season, i traded carlos lee for scott strickland. i wanted montreal's closer and got just another bullpen hand for the mets. lee didn't have a stellar year last year, but at least he'd give me production, whereas strickland lasted about 4 days on my squad.
the jury's out on my one trade this year: i gave up bonds for vlad, straight up. i got bonds with the #5, some dude took vlad at #1, but i'm pretty sure he missed the draft and picked by default rankings where vlad is #1 overall. originally i offered bonds and bellhorn, but the league vetoed it. i think i can live with that
