Biggest Mistake you made this year so Far?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby West Coast Fan » Tue Jul 13, 2004 1:54 am

Well I'm certainly feeling better. I get a lot of trade offers and have rejected all of them. My mistakes have been that I had and dropped a few good pitchers in H2H leagues. I think at one point I had Carpenter from St Louis for one week.

I got a H2H team with ARod, Tejada, Rolen and Ramirez so I have too many 3rd basemen. I actually tried to trade ARod, but the guy rejected my offer.

Another team I'm running away with saves and no one is trading, so I haven't been able to do much with my surplus.

It seems that there's a lot of trading going on, and now the results are coming home to roost. Somewhere I read that you really shouldn't trade til June so you can see how your team is really performing, and what your needs are going to be for the second half.

Sorry guys. ;-)

Good Moves:
Picked up all of these on the WW: Nathan, Overbay, Vidro

Bad Moves:
Dropped H. Matsui and Konerko before they really heated up and wasted a draft pick on Marlon Byrd

Left on a vacation with no access to the great Internet, thinking all would be safe. It was, after all, a weekly league with no bench. What could go wrong? !+)

Good: Traded Millwood and Edmonds for two first round supplemental picks in my keeper league.

Bad: Drafted Dave Roberts and Borowski with those picks! I was praying Podsednik would last until the pick but didnt, and so I took Roberts. At least I got Kolb with my own first rounder.

Bad 2: Thinking Nomar would be back two weeks into the season, and drafting DeRosa as a backup, because I had faith, and because he could play 3 positions. Now Im still trying to make up for having DeRo play 51 games for me at SS.

Bad 3: Thinking every fifth day, "This is as low as Bartolo can go, keep him in there."

Ya I was one the the guys who dropped Sheets and Oliver Perez, but by far my worst trade this year was 3 weeks into the season after colon was looking pretty good and podsednik was on fire I dealt podzilla for colon straight up. :,-(

I had Blalock and Beltre. About a month ago, when Yahoo kept going on and on about Beltre's injury with his heel, I decided to drop him. I don't remember who it was for, maybe an Adam Eaton or a Chris Carpenter or something.

Sucks, especially since I think me and the guy who picked him up will be battling it out for first place.

Was too Impatient, traded Teixera for Luis Castillo only to ifnd Vidro on the Free agents, so I picked him up instead, so I gave Teixera for nothing.
