10 team roto, dropped Danks in early June, grabbed him back three weeks later. :-t

12 team roto, dropped Dempster in early May, to make room though.

This is really it, which is amazing when you compare it to all of the great adds all year long. For six teams, I can not complain, which is probably why I am doing so well so far. ;-D

Dropped Sanchez and was planning on watching his start to see how he did before picking him up, but then someone got him right before his start so I didn't get the chance. Also dropped Kotchman for Ervin Santana and dropped Ankiel for I think Jay Bruce. I doubt I'll end up regretting dropping Hafner, but we'll see.

Joe Crede
Jorge Cantu
Kevin Slowey (but im not a fan)

Pedroia.

Other than that, I have more "wish I didn't draft" than "wish I hadn't dropped"

This is easy for me. I had to drop Doumit in a 16 team league when he went on the DL. I already had Posada, Baker, and W Rodriguez on the DL and couldn't afford to take a 0 at C. :-t

I dropped Huff last week, but have since picked him back after making 2 trades to clear some space for him in a 10 team league. I could have used his production this week as I'm getting smoked in hitting cats. Also in this same league I dropped B Wilson for J Westbrook after his first 2 starts . Westy was great while he pitched for like 2 games, but he isn't doing me any good now. I figured the Giants would struggle to win games, and he'd get minimal save opps. Boy was I wrong!! :-t :-P

1) Before openining day dropped JD Drew for Chris Duncan, Ducan then dropped for Parra who was later included in a trade
2)Dropped Huff twice in May. Once for Luke Scott who I later dropped for Huff :-b then later in May dropped Huff again for Mark ellis who was just included in a trade a few days ago.

The Drew drop was the most painful 8-o

I've dropped a pretty good OF worth of players:

Raúl Ibañez (picked up George Sherrill 3/28)
Jermaine Dye (picked up Ellsbury 4/22)
Jacoby Ellsbury (picked up Uggla 4/24)

I also dropped Thome, but didn't consider him a "big" loss. My OF at the moment consist of: C.Lee, Crawford and Hamilton, w/ Granderson at UTIL and V.Wells riding pine. I do wish I still had Ellsbury though.
