What has been your best FA pick-ups this year ?

Mine were:

Crosby
Otsuka(who I knew about going into the season and couldn't wait til he hit the WW)
Affeldt
Estrada
Figgins
Rowand


It's a 14 team league so these guys seemed like they could all help, and they did.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

Ahhh yes Crosby... I completely underrated him and held him for the first month, then dumped him... Then came the SS problems galore! :~(

I thought everyone dropped Gagne when he blew his save streak. No need to keep an unreliable closer around. ;-)


I was lying. My theory is that in threads like this, no one pays ANY attention to what other people write. Instead, they blindly type in their best FA pickups in an effort to inflate their ego and hope others congratulate them.

My theory had a minor setback as people questioned the legitimacy of my claims.

Sorry to dispell your theory but I for one read the entire thread before posting. However, it would have been nice to nab some of those guys on the FA wire...

Not too bad a shot at it. I think you might need to add a threshold to the theory, chances are you could have snuck in a couple of them. It was maybe a bit too overloaded for people to pass up. ;-D

Hmmm...Wright, V Martinez, D Lee, Overbay, and Rollins turned out quite nicely I suppose.
