reading too much into Bobby Crosby's spring, and drafting him as my starting SS.

Here's my killer:

I gave M. Lowell/S. Podsednik

Thinking that Lowell's shoulder was gimpy and Pods was a one-hit wonder

to get B. Colon/K. Millar

The only thing that is even remotely positve about this is that I later packaged Millar with a couple of FA pickups for Huff (if he ever gets it going).

Inkcog...it's early. That trade will benefit you when it's all said and done. Overbay won't hit for this kind of pop all year.

I also drafted and started Contreras (benched him for his good start against Oakland), but I haven't given up hope yet.

I regret not dropping Koch/Marte for Valverde.

Biggest regret....passing up Beltran not once but TWICE to pick up Schilling and Nomah gimpy-aparra. I love Schilling, but I would never have drafted Nomah if I knew he would be out for 2 months.
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.

I guess dropping Finley about a day or two before he had that 3 HR game (and then went on to hit 4 more in the next week). Especially since my team is weak in power, I could have used those HRs a lot.

Either that or passing on C. Zambrano and M. Young to get Millar in the 12th round.

Sorry guys but I have little to complain about :-) I'm in first place and have been since week two :-)

Biggest regrets...Dropping Wilson Alvarez, who I'd been holding for 5 weeks waiting for him to jump into the rotation, for Chris Carpenter :-b
