Biggest Mistake you made this year so Far?

Postby BigMusky » Mon Jul 12, 2004 2:33 pm

I had to pick two pitchers out of three off the WW early...

Oliver Perez, Peavy and Sheets. Guess who I didnt pick! DOH!

At least Perez is still healthy and I had to cut Peavy loose when he got hurt.

Picking up Sheets off waivers right after a draft, then dropping him a couple days later. Woe is me. :~(

I got made fun of during the draft because I took Pudge as the first overall catcher. Guy making fun of me took Posada with next pick.

Dropping C. Wilson early on because I thought he'd have to fight for playing time and I had injuries to contend with. :-[

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Bad trade - early in the season refused to trade Bagwell for Ortiz. !+)
Good trades - Dunn/Spiezio for Rolen ;-D ;-D
Randa for "The Gambler" KRogers ;-D
Chipper for Pierre ???? We shall see.
