In 2008, I traded away Manny Acosta for Ricky Nolasco before Nolasco picked up his first win of that season. He went on to win 15 games and Acosta saved one game before falling apart and that trade was a big reason I was able to finish second place that season. To date, that has been my highest placement in the league as I have had a meddlesome run of rather average finishes, some of my own doing.
The Tout Wars leagues are hosted on the onRoto software which has a very neat tool that shows you how the standings would have played out if everyone played the rosters they drafted all season without making moves. According to that tool, I would have finished second place last season with 85 points. Instead, I finished with 63 points because my own roster management got in the way. I am hopeful I did not commit a similar sin this week when I completed an in-staff trade this week with Chris Liss.
