I am interested in seeing the most uneven trades some of the fantasy owners made
I traded shields
I got weeks, reynolds
I traded Cargo, Bautista
I got Fielder, zito
Post your best and worst
Okay, early in the season I pulled this one off:
Doumit (dropped later)
Porcello (dropped later)
Jorge de la Rosa
so... essentially I got Votto, Upton (who I traded for Ethier), and A-Rod for Wieters Reynolds and Markakis
I was doing poor in saves so I decided to punt them and trade them. Good thing too. Had a great year in trades.
K-rod (convict)--> Brandon Phillips
dotel & heilman --> Vladimir Guerrero
Aaron hill & Adam Lind --> Ichiro Suzuki
berkman, lincecum & figgins --> pujols & beltre
cuddyer --> Ryan dempster
This was my first year doing fantasy baseball and I had a horrendous draft when I look back. The only trade I regret is my first one, but it worked out.
Bobby abreu --> Michael cuddyer
Kemp for Hamels (10 man keeper
Bautista/Arroyo for Inge (20 man keeper)
Arencibia/Davis/Bumgarner for Kemp/Pelfrey (20 man keeper)
Phillips for Utley (20 man keeper)
Werth/Webb for Teixera (10 man keeper)
Wright/Sizemore for Lincecum/Swisher
I have two. Trading away Granderson and Stephen Drew for Holliday and Bell in May.
Or trading away Ervin Santana and Slowey for Jose Reyes
And an honorable mention to trading lindstrom for Napoli about 2 weeks ago before lindstrom became a mess.
Can't say I really have a worst, but I did drop Posey in the beginning of July and decided to stay with Wieters. Yes, that was days before he started his 20 game hit streak
Wow, so many to choose from, I trade a lot.
Got: Car Go, Uggla
Gave: Dunn, R. Soriano
Got: Longoria, Jimenez
Gave: Morales, Nunez, Matusz
Got: Pujols, Victorino, J. Santana
Gave: Uggla, Stubbs, Jimenez
Gave: Dempster, W. Rodriguez
My worst would have to be Hamilton and Cueto for Josh Johnson, though I needed an ace pitcher and this was right before both players started going crazy.

Talk about a Closer for an everyday player. I really, really needed a Closer so I traded Joey Votto for Heath Bell.Since July1, I've gotten 16 Saves 2 Wins and 26K's from Bell. But I gave away 11HR's 36 Runs, 31 RBI,s, so far!!!!!!! Need I go on? Dumb Dumb Dumb, but I needed a Closer!!!!! Never trade a everyday player for a Pitcher.
