Biggest Mistake you made this year so Far?

I almost forgot, I traded Schmidt and Morris for Vazquez. That was when he got hurt in spring training. I was already worried about him because of the arm surgery and that made me jump ship. Oh well.

Good Moves:
Picking up Beltre, Figgins, Valentin and Castilla off the ww early.
Trading J. Frasor for Oliver Perez ;-D

Bad Moves:
Trading away Beltre for Contreras :-t

Oh yeah, my BIGGEST mistake was drafting Austin Kearns over Roger Clemens. Thought Kearns was in for a big season this year................. :~(

Drafted these guys in an autodraft: Griffey, Craig Wilson, Jack Wilson. Dropped them all early on b/c I didn't believe. Yeah, brilliant. Also owned Mora at one point but dropped him too. The moral is patience, folks, patience.

I dropped Ben Sheets after one game because he left the game after 5 innings because of a MINOR injury (he got the win and pitched well).


Sounds familiar. I was one of THREE owners to drop David Ortiz in one league (I had Sexson....what did I need with Ortiz).

Also dropped Sheets when it came down to him or Penny.....as a result of maybe the only bad decision that I try to partially share blame with the Cafe for:

8-0 vote for Penny was good enough for me.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.

"Buying Low" on Bartolo Colon.

The trade was Colon and Juan Rincon for Dotel and Lidge.

Who could have known that the performance levels of those four players would be:

1. Lidge
2. Rincon
3. Dotel
4. Colon

Drafting Boone at the end of the first round. No, you don't win your league with your first-round pick, but you can sure hobble yourself with a bad one.

Also acquired Kearns in trade the day before he broke his arm.

Third place out of 14 teams.

Was it a public league? If not, I'm surprised your Commish didn't roll this back for you if you let him know right away. There are plenty of reasons to lose a season, spastic clicking shouldn't be one of them. :*)
