Sorry for the questions but after reading an earlier post I didnt even realize there was as much strategy in a H2H league.
So, on to my question after a short explanation, or a long one. First year of fantasy baseball, after years of fantasy football. I am in several leagues, this is the only H2H one tho. Finished third in the league in the regular season, so I am rather happy with that. But the playoffs are going on now. This was a random invite league. I didn't know anyone in the league. Playing in this league for a chance to take a team over in a keeper league, which intrigued me mightily. Winner of the playoffs get a chance to take the team over.
One of the teams that didnt make the playoffs dumped his team after a whiny post about how the league wasn't fun and such. I attempted 5 pick ups and got them all, surprisingly. Did I err? And I am not asking for reason of ethics, I am asking as a way to help myself.
Here was my team that helped me do so well. Pick ups in parathensis, and new roster positions

Looks like I get 2 more starts Curt Schilling and Sidney Ponson
He gets Greg Maddux and Elmer Dessens
His RPs are Eric Gange and Billy Wagner 8/
Did I mess up benching my guys playing in San Juan for FLA and MTL?
Also Sanchez didnt play tonight, any reason why?
Any moves you would make? Did I mess up putting someone in who I shouldn't? Did I make a mistake dropping Paul LoDuca? Same with Looper for Hasegawa?
Sorry for the rambling but thats me.
