    Your Worst Fantasy Decision

    For me, it was dropping Chipper Jones last week when reading he was going to be out "several weeks."

    They are already talking about bringing him back.

    I have Atkins and Encarnacion, so I have depth, but I want to go throw up right now.

    Anybody else ever pull a Dom Heffner?

    Drafting Curt Schilling first pick overall 5 or so years back when he was injured the whole year.

    My worst mistake this season was dropping Russell Martin early in the year for a reason I can not recall.
    Matta = Really good

    Trading Hanley Ramirez for Adam Dunn after going the 1st month with a team that was dead last by a long shot in HR & RBIs.

    My league is straight 5x5 roto, and I'm still leaps and bounds in HR - but now my lead in AVG & steals have vanished and I'm still stuck in the basement.

    I usually don't get pissed at myself for moves, but that's one of them.

    Last year I dropped Adam LaRoche in my NL only keeper league after two bad weeks and he went on to have a monster year, for someone else.

    A few weeks ago, I traded Brian Roberts, Michael Young, and Adrian Gonzalez for Brandon Webb. All three of those guys were on my bench, but I should've gotten much more value for those three players. Last week, the guy traded Michael Young for John Lackey.

    Yeah, I also traded Curtis Granderson this year before the season started and dropped Cory Hart.

    I'm brilliant.

    I traded away Prince Fielder last year in a keeper league...he was 20 bucks to keep in a 260 cap. This trade sealed the league for me, though. I needed steals and saves, and this trade moved me up in both categories tremendously. I also have Ryan Howard. I still cringe every time I see that Fielder hit a home run, which so far is like 22 times this year.

    I have never made a bad decision. Ever. I'm a genius.

    Oh, but I did get BJ Upton with the last pick in one of my leagues this year and then dropped him for an extra pitcher before the season started. I'm still regretting that one.

    I'm still sick over Chipper. I didn't realize "will miss several weeks" meant he'd be back in 2.

    Dropped Bill Hall last year after he only had 6 at bats the first week.

    Well I just dropped his sorry butt this week. I don't care if he hits 30 the rest of the way, I'm over the dude.

    How he can't hit in that lineup is beyond me.

    Upton can't keep this up. I wouldn't stress over it too bad.

    They are now saying Chipper is back on Tuesday. I should sue somebody.

    First year Johan Santana was a starter, I drafted him around round 12-15 in every league I was in. His ERA was in the 4's two months in, and though I loved his K's, I cut him loose in almost every league I was in. I then got to watch him become the most dominant pitcher in the game the rest of the season.
