wildfire wrote:In my Roto League 12 Teams 5X5 Cat.

three weeks into the season:

I got : Jim Thome (after slump at start due to broken finger in spring training) & Joel Pineiro
I gave: Matt Morris

I got: Andy Petitte
I gave: Vinny Castilla (when he was AL player of week)

I drafted Joe Nathan (19th Rd)
I got Eric Milton off Waivers
I got Danny Graves off Waivers

as a side note, I even got David Ortiz sitting on my bench, cause I got Helton, & Thome already at 1st base lol.

EDIT---- I just traded David Ortiz for Carlos Beltran to fill my vacant OF spot, now I got Beltran/Drew/Vladi as my OF and Thome as my UTIL... ;-D

am i the only one reading this and wondering if everyone is playing in 5 man leagues with the kinds of guys gotten off waivers?

in my college (jackasses) league Abreu was dropped about week 8 :-° (i had last waiver priority :-t )

im wondering how so many guys went undrafted in your leagues? Cabrera/a. ramirez seems absurd to me.

also, in a lot of your leagues did lidge/k-rod go undrafted or something? Maybe guys hate k/9's of over 10 and good ratios? regardless thats why i'm in first place in a bunch of leagues i guess...

i did get gagne/abreu for manny/graves(during hot streak) in one decently competitive league, i'm pretty happy about that

alright...I've made a lot of Trades, so we'll list a top 5 I think...but first, best draft choice, pick-up, none that I didnt trade Bay, who's on my team right now.

And by the way, you might think that these should go in a different order.

I gave: Woody Williams, Eddie Guardado
I got: Rivera

I gave: J. Burnitz
I got: Delgado

Gave: Mora, Delgado, Izzy
Got: Thome, Foulke

Gave: Soriano, Lofton, Nen
Got: Beltran, Young, Pierre

And #1. Straight-up, about a month to 1.5 months in (right as Santana got hot)
Gave: Biddle
Got: Santana

Biddle for Santana...thank you very much
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

Picked up J. Guillen off waivers.

Traded Beckett and Finley for Helton and Teixeira 2 days before Beckett went on the DL for the first time. After this move I climbed from 11th to 2nd in my league. ;-D
