It was David Justice... in 2000 or 2001 or 2002... something like that... when he was a Yankee?????

I drafted him early, he started slow, I waived him in order to pick up a pitcher.

Justice of course later caught fire... for some other fantasy team.

And my replacement in the outfield was David Bell I believe.

Another streaky hitter, who stopped hitting as soon as I gave him the opportunity to hurt my team instead of my bench.

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).

Darin Erstad after his monster 2000 season.

2000- .355 avg, 240 hits, 121 runs, 25 Homers, 100 RBIs, 28 Steals

So I take him first round....

2001- .258, 163 hits, 89 runs, 9 Homers, 63 RBIs, 24 steals


Erstad is uncomprehendable. If you look at his stats year after year. 2000 sticks out like a sore thumb. Stats like that have to make you wonder if a guy has something extra.

Before last season, I traded Santana and M. Giles for Soriano. He shall die, die, die. Image On the plus side, I can back up that hatred.

Bret Boone last year... I was probably stupid to take him in the second round, but still, he burned me.

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.

Last season...

Drafted Prior in the first round, and less than a month in, made a move to get Wood. Also drafted Nomo and Orlando Cabrera.

Later made a deal to get Giambi right before his "parasite."

Any of the above are candidates for this discussion (although I'm a Cubs fan and wouldn't argue if Prior or Wood fell in my lap again).

Question for people...

Just from the burned perspective...last year I drafted Jose Reyes, Joe Mauer and Richie Sexson. Ouch, that'll leave a mark!
