My SP and RP sucked bad and I had Abreu, Sheffield, Burrell, Manny, and Bradley.
I may have payed too much, but that can only be decided after Unit shows his hand on how well hes going to do from here out and if Bedard is going to be 100% when he gets back.

Personally, I was offered Jose Guillen and Morneau (seperately) from a owner who is an O's fan.

KolbSaves wrote:How would the other owner be an idiot? This is another common misconception in fantasy baseball. Just because a player was undrafted doesn't mean he doesn't have value or won't continue to play well. You should treat player values as fluid and don't be bitter that you didn't snag player x or y off the wire before someone else. The old "oh you just picked that guy off the wire a week ago, I could have had him for free" argument doesn't make any sense. Player x is no longer free, deal with it. Evaluate his worth from here on out, because your past actions are sunk costs and cannot be recovered.
Play for the rest of the season unless you're one of 3 leagues out there that use retroactive stats.

Whether you got him for nothing or not doesn't matter now. What matters now is acquiring the players who will do the best for the rest of the season. The money or high draft pick you spent on so and so player doesn't mean you have to stick with that player. You can't get those dollars back or that draft pick back. You can only move forward and make the best decisions from here on out.
