That explains your hatred for Soriano.
I can see how Burrell is on a lot of people's list. One guy in my league kept him over Pujols in 03 (kept 4 back then).

Carlos Delgado, last year. I got sick of him in late July and dropped him.
But, you know... the thing that bothers me most is when I lost our league championship in my first year due to a last-minute change in pitching. In my local league, we have a pseudo-rotation for each series of games against another team (3 games per series, if a pitcher throws on any of the three days, you can play him in any game you want). At 3pm, about 45 minutes before gametime, I called up the guy I was playing for the championship. I had decided I wanted to switch my Friday and Saturday pitchers around; dumb move. I'd have swept the series if I'd left them alone. Instead, I lost both of those games and lost the series.

rich aurillia the year after he went off or maybe it was the year after that. paid $17 for him.....thought that was a good price. also bought ray durham that year. figured hey, they're batting in front of bonds. durham's been hurt ever since i think and aurillia has sucked ever since....i may have broken them!!!??
