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.


Why anyone dropped Uggla is beyond me. You couldn't even drop that guy in a 2-team league.

In my big keeper league we get 5 keepers for $65, FA are worth $5. I had Jay Bruce for $16, but someone cut Rasmus so I picked him up. Didn't need or want two NA OF on my pine, so I cut Bruce who I wouldn't be able to afford to keep for Jack Cust %-6

Dropping Doumit was my first move of the season, and still my worst, though I did drop him for Molina who has been very solid. Since then, I've looked like a genius, picking up B. Wilson, Kemp, Marcum, Maine, Billingsley, Fuentes, Giambi, and Morrow. B-)

Hard to believe Wilson, Kemp, Marcum, Maine and Bills were on waivers.

I dropped Jeff Kent for Freddie Sanchez (who was on my team for maybe 2 days). That isnt a big deal, BUT the next person picked up by a team in my league was JOSH HAMILTON!!!!! This was on 5/11.

How was Hamilton a FA half way through May? 8-o

Nothing huge yet, but did drop DeJesus and Alei Casilla halfway through Arpil for "help" in other areas. Obviously both players I picked up are long gone, as are the 2 guys I dropped.

Count me among the droppers of both Longoria and Ellsbury.

April 4th drop Jacoby Ellsbury, add Hiroki Kuroda

May 16th drop Evan Longoria, add Justin Duchsherer (in and of itself not so bad, but I had others I could have dropped), while Evan was hitting .210/.309/.381

These were offset by two great adds

April 5th drop Scott Baker, add Shaun Marcum

April 7th drop Manny Parra, add Chad Billingsley

Longoria hurts worse than Ellsbury because I am lapping the field in Rs in my 6x6 roto and am comfortably in 4th of 12 in SBs. I'm in first overall, so neither hurts that bad.
