12-team league. Yahoo Pro $100. Drafted 3rd overall

Best:

- Derek Holland with my #15 pick
- Alexei Ramirez with my #20 pick
- Everth Cabrera with my #22 pick
- Patrick Corbin off waivers in Week 4
- Benoit off waivers in Week 5
- Trading Sabathia for Glen Perkins and Pedro Alvarez in Week 9
- Dominic Brown off waivers in Week 9

Worst:

- David Freese with my #10 pick. (Just a brutal start for him so I was platooning Youklis and Callpso for several weeks after I dropped him)
- Dropping Everth Cabrera for Franklin Gutierrez in Week 2 (Right before my #2 pick Jose Reyes went down lol)
- David Hernandez over Heath Bell off waivers the night Putz went down (based on Rotoworld expert analysis :P)

Sitting in 5th place with this week's matchup tied at 5-5. I was in 10th place after Week 8 so I'll take it

Your own league settings don't rule the world. According to MLB, ESPN, and CBSSports...today is the end of Week 15.

And that has nothing to do with the original post anyway...

worst: dropping teheran, drafting pujols

best: grabbing puig three days before his callup.
"The base paths belonged to me, the runner. The rules gave me the right. I always went into a bag full speed, feet first. I had sharp spikes on my shoes. If the baseman stood where he had no business to be and got hurt, that was his fault."

Oh wow. I didn't even know Yahoo was doing that. Hmm...I might have done things differently this week if I knew (I started Perez vs. the Tigers today lol)

Best moves:

Drafting Crush Davis, CarGo and Goldy in all 3 of my leagues.

Trading Kemp for Puig in a keeper the day after Kemp's series in Coors.

Adding guys like Corbin and Puig

Worst moves:

Dropping Machado after he started 1 for 13
Dropping Teheran after giving him an entire month to straighten things out

Best:
Drafting Segura with last pick. Burning waiver claim on Donaldson. Not drafting a single pitcher until the 9th round.

Worst:
Declined E5/Beltran for JUP trade offer. Dropping E.Cabrera. Punting saves and decided to chase (brutal year)

Megatron = lemon
 
A year early with his foresight but Julio is a wizard lol!

Worst move: Drafted B. Lawrie and Dropping Kipnis when he was really struggling! Only to have to trade for him back with Puig. :unsure:

Best moves: Picking the following players off waviers: M. Cuddyer, J. Locke, J. Teheran, J. Parker, P. Alvarez, E (dropped by other owners) E. Mujica before he got the closing role and Picking up Puig just before he got the call up for $0.

Best: Trading Parker and S Perez for Goldschmidt and Sano in a keeper during ST
Worst: Same keeper league, Trading away E5 for Shark during ST( after acquiring Goldy) thinking last year was an outlier for E5
