So I saw someone post something like this on a fantasy baseball LiveJournal community, and figured I'd take a look. Basically, he took his team, as drafted, then listed all the transactions involving those players... here's an example:

24. Mark DeRosa -> Rey Sanchez -> Dan Wilson -> Jason LaRue

That'd be my team. Well, I did that, and found some interesting things. I won't post the whole thing, but think I'll give you some highlights:

* Of the first 11 rounds, nine of those players are still on my roster. The two that aren't (#4 Matt Morris and #5 Ellis Burks) left via trade and season-ending injury, respectively. They've been replaced by Kevin Millwood and Bobby Kielty... that's the ONLY way Kielty's getting near the fifth round of a fantasy draft.
* The longest chain for me is at round #20: Marty Cordova -> Orlando Merced -> Dustin Hermanson -> Miguel Ascencio -> Dontrelle Willis -> Mariano Rivera (T). Kinda surprising to turn Marty Cordova into Mariano Rivera, no?
* Best steals came at round #18 (Steve Kline into Jerome Williams), #21 (Daryle Ward into Desi Relaford) and #23 (Alex Cora into Eric Byrnes). Should Trevor Hoffman come back in due time, round #16 will get on this list (Brad Ausmus -> Vance Wilson -> Hoffman).
* Fernando Vina and Randall Simon have done fuck-all for me, and they were picks #14 and #15. In the meantime, Nick Johnson played more like a 14 or 15 pick, and I got him in round 22. From round 18 on, he's the only player to make it from draft to today.

Watch, no one's gonna reply to this, but I thought it'd be interesting. Anyone else got anything like this?

I turned Richie Sexson into Kevin Millwood into Bret Boone into Carlos Delgado all via trades.

Your team has done good in waivers and you made one good trade getting Rivera and Millwood for Morris and Willis.

But you really had a poor draft. Many of your top picks wound up on the DL. And you got absolutely nothing of value after the 10th round of the draft. As a result of such a poor draft, you had the chance to add so many good players off waivers.

On the other hand I rocked rounds 16 to 19 of the draft getting Scott Williamson, Edgar Martinez, Carl Crawford, and Jay Gibbons.

We get it, you're a good owner. So what?

Jeeze. Don't your friends kick your ass when you act like this in real life?

Wait, don't tell me...

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

The reason I had asked about where Cedeno was is because I don't entirely consider Detroit a suitable major-league baseball club right now (although my fave, Felipe Alou, is with them - what has he done wrong to get dealt with another bad team?)
