I hope I'm not alone here, but this was ugly.
In need of saves, yesterday I read that Hawkins is out as closer in Chicago. Having already picked up Burgos, I keep tabs on the Cubs game to see who gets the call. When I see that Fox has two outs in the 9th, I go get him.
I drop Turnbow for Fox.
It's worth mentioning that I have Adams too. I had Turnbow as his backup. I decided a bird in hand is better than a closer in waiting and make the move.
Hours later Turnbow gets the save for the Brewers. A day later, Fox's shoulder is sitting on Sheffield Ave next to the homerun he gave up.
Now I have to use my #1 waiver priority to get a guy that I DROPPED.
Anyone else have any bad pickup/drop stories so far this season?
