What are the best moves you didn't make?

I kept Vidro, Jeter and Santana.

I also kept and P. Wilson and Reyes, who will hopefully pay off in the 2nd half.

Traded Johnny Estrada instead of Victor Martinez (and some other people) about a week ago.
Didn't pick up highly-touted young pitchers, Clint Naegotte and Edwin Jackson.

Man I bet that was a tough call! So far so good. ;-D I'd say the best move I didn't make is trading my Schmidt for Burell,LGonzalez(Ari) 2 wks into the season.

I didnt pick Aramis Ramirez in the 9th round of a 12 team 5X5 roto league, because even though I needed a 3B, the cafe assured me I should be able to get him in a later round than the 9th.

I was almost right about Aramis being the best 3B still out there if it werent for Carlos Guillen eligible at 3rd and haveing a great year so far.


I still managed to get Aramis Ramires in the 11h round though.

Best move I didnt make was not getting him in the 9th round so far.

Some idiot dropped marcus giles when he got hurt and I didn't pick him up because I was running late for work and figured I'd do it when I got there. I guess someone must have read my mind because when I got there he was gone. Guess I should have spared the extra 20 seconds but I have Soriano so it doesn't hurt nearly as bad as it should have.
