How in the world did you get Alphonson Soriano in 2008?

I literally remembered the terms of the contract for Marlon Byrd(3/16) but couldn't remember who he was. Other misses were DeShields, Lake, and Bonifacio(who I don't think I will ever remember every time this post comes up)

Multiple years where I typed Sofa or Sandberg or Grace or Dunston and then just stared slackjawed at the screen for a long, long time.

160 correct. I did great in 1991 - 2003 or so.

Did terrible the last 10 years with the exception of last season.

169

Forgot guys like Schierholz and DeJesus.

I get how you could be tuned out of crappy Cubs teams of recent years, but I distinctly remembered the Lillibridge debacle.
