Return to Baseball Leftovers

Dumbest thing you've done all season?

Dropped Morneau early....

Picked up Alex Rios, he had a few 0fers and I figured the hot streak was over so I dumped him.

Future mistakes:

Held on to Pettite forever then eventually couldn't keep a slot on the pine all the time, so dropped him. MY guess is Pettite comes back, but I have doubt the Astros can score enuf runs to get wins.

Traded longtime keeper Carlos Zambrano to fill a need at short. Being in first and wanting to hold on to first makes you do things you'll probably regret someday. I also just soured on the cubs. All the terrible runn support and blown saves have taken years off my life, but someday Zambrano will be on a good team and I'll cry about 25 times a year.

(Just thought I'd get a little head start on this soon-to-be stupid move)

Past big mistake.

Signing Kyle Farnsworth over Papelbon at the begining of the season thinking Farnsworth would get me vulture wins (and since Pap wasn't closing yet).

Possible future mistake :

Dropping Russel Martin for Eddie Guardardo and holding onto Morgan Ensberg and Nick Swisher too long?

Trade I rejected which I hope wasn't a mistake:

I give David Ortiz, get Bartolo Colon and Eric Gagne or Brad Lidge.

Stupid Move#1- Traded C. Guillen And Zito for Rollins about a month ago. ( I know )

Stupid Move#2- Picked up M. Ordonez, and then dropped him for Joey Devine :-/

Really Stupid Move#3- Picked up Liriano, and then dropped him because he wasn't starting. for David freak'n Eckstein. :~(

Luckely I've made some other good moves and I'm hovering around 3rd and 4th place un a 12 team league. Plenty of time to make up for the mistakes.
