I dropped Kazmir half way through his first start. I had about a four day window to pick up Papelbon, but figured Benitez would be better in the long run so I stayed put. I picked up and later dropped Otsuka, Chris Young and Verlander. I was high on Shelton at the beginning of the year, and when he went on his hot streak, I didn't try very hard to sell him high.

I dropped Clemens (but for Otsuka) on April 27th. Missed out on picking him up when he made his decision.
Yeah.. this "fantasy guru" thing is just a user name, folks.

Wasn't paying attention at my draft and selected Chipper Jones when Lance Berkman, Jose Reyes and Travis Hafner were available.... :-[

But I made up for it when someone offered me Tejeda for Todd Jones and Zach Duke ;-D

Liked Loriano, was about to draft him, but I already had King Felix and didn't like the prospects of banking 40% of my starting staff on kids. picked Pettite instead.
