#1 Jhonny Peralta...Took him on all of my teams in early May, on the come, based on position flexibility....CHA-CHING!
#1.5 Asdrubral Cabrera...Grabbed the wave when R Zimmerman (whom I had on 2 teams) got hurt and needed Peralta at 3B....CHA-CHING-CHING!
#2 Daniel Murphy...The Mets?...Who knew?
#3 Jeff Karstens...All he does is put Ws on the board.
#3.5 Justin Masterson...All he does is bring down ERA & WHIP numbers.
Who are your closet steals?
Definitely Alex Gordon and Melky Cabrera. I drafted Posey, Stephen Drew, and suffered through Dan Ugglas first half, and am still in second place in my league. Wouldn't be there without these two, and the fact that I got granderson in the 11th round of our draft!
It helped that everyone in my league is from St. Louis, and doesn't like KC, and didn't pick them up.
Mike Morse on 2 different teams. I actually cut him last year from a 12-team, keep-20-players league, and picked him up in early May.
Alex Avila was also excellent, as I picked him up right when Mauer got hurt, and he hit extremely well until Mauer came back. I then included him in a trade for Lance Berkman.
montero, uggla, rios, abreu, vladi, morneau, jj hardy, & jennnings, flipped everybody but montero and desmond. my 12 team look like this now
last year i picked up Bautista in May...now that was excellent
this year i picked up a bunch of bums but the best one was probably drafting ellsbury 5th (my 5th round pick in a 10 team league and I pick 9th).
in terms of FA, i picked up Vogelsong, Worley, Masterson, Farnsworth (i've got rid of him now), and Ackley - although with Ackley, everyone knew he'd be worth picking up so you can't count that one.
Farnsworth, 2 days before the season.
A. Sanchez, J. Zimmerman, Beachy a couple months ago.
Hosmer the day before he came up.
JP. Picked up and dropped many times when My McCann was off or DL'ing.
Placido for the first 3 months of the season until I could replace him with my 16-18th round draftpick.... Chase Utley.
Early in the season i traded Uggla/M.Rivera for Votto/Napoli... The dude dropped Uggla so I picked him back up off of waivers.
I missed the draft for this team but I was able to make it my own.
