What are some mistakes you'ev made?

Aside from the mistakes I made on draft day I am really kicking myself right now for dropping Adam Everett especially since Renteria's been MIA this season.

Trading Griffey Jr for Dave Roberts when I thought I needed speed. I thought for sure that Jr would be on the DL at least once by now. Turns out my other guys started running (42 SB's the last 4 weeks compared to 15 the first 4).

Post Trade Stats
Roberts - 44 AB, 8 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 4 SB, .295 AVG
Junior - 122 AB's, 23 R, 14 HR, 34 RBI, 0 SB, .262 AVG

I'm in a fantasy point league, sandbox to be exact, and my biggest mistakes have been the following.

1. Waiving Adam Eaton for Cliff Lee at the start of the year, only to waive cliff lee a week later, i know eaton has stunk, but i really think he was worth a roster spot, 12 team league, someone else snatched him.

2. Having the brains to snag victor martinez in the 22nd round of the draft, only to waive him when he was doing mediocre at the start of the year, it wasnt a panic waive, just a casual thing to pick up another catcher, since i already had piazza it was only for a backup.

3. Sticking with herges for as long as i did, in my fantasy point league, there is 140 relief appearances, so if you use one up without a save, its kind of annoying, as you know herges is the king of non save oppurtunity appearances, and he usually stunk in them.

4. Other than that, missing out on chone figgins 3 SB 4 hit night, and daryle wards cycle(since waived), both on my roster, both benched

believing in borowski would turn it around. lost so many cats because of him.

part two of my mistake was not trading him but in my anger dropping him before shopping around to see if there are any bites.
