I've said this here before.
Last year, I was getting ready to draft keith foulke in round seven after a closer run where i had snagged, rolen and j. schmidt. Right as I was clicking on foulke, in yahoo's alphabetical list, my pc hiccupped, i was clicking when I was John Franco's Name highlighted then drafted (I double clicked). Boy, did I hear it from the league. 3 picks later, foulke was off the board.
Some other of my interesting picks of that draft.
Ray durham in the 6th
Mike Williams in the 8th
Alfonseca in the 9th!!!!!!!
Horrible, when I look at it now.
Also junk drafted Alan Embree, and Casey Fossum (Thinking ole Epstein was on to something when he wouldn't let the young lefty go.) I hate to admit it, BUT FREAKIN ROGER CEDENO started the season on that team. (no games). One good pick was renteria in the 11th.
So I got second out of twelve, but it took a lot of in-season clawing to get to the top (5x5 Roto). I held the lead from about the first of august to mid-september. then we kept swapping place on a daily basis for bout a week. And he pulled away for the win.
We all know that it is quite possible to make a fatal error on a draft and still win a league.
As Far as a perfect draft, in 2001 I got shilling in the 8TH Round, that was sweet, also on that team were pudge, Louis Gonzoles (57 HR) Mike Mussina, Kevin Brown, Trevor Hoffman. Not that all-stars mean anything in fantasy, but at the break in 2001, i had twelve all-stars on my roster. I didn't win all the categories (5x5 yahoo roto) but I won with 115 points. Second place miles away. That's as close as I've ever come.

How do you spell "biased?"
