Picked up Griffey Jr. at the beginning of may off waiver
Picked up Giambi the day after torre said he was ready to go nuts
Then unfortunately dropped giambi three days later for Piazza off waivers

I really regret not holding on to giambi...

Unless this is a keeper league you might want to cancel the claim. Bonds told mlb.com today that he doesn't anticipate playing any this year.

I grabbed Clint Barmes off the waiver wire right before opening day, as I made the foolish mistake of keeping Alex Cintron instead of Angel Berroa at short.

At least I got 2 months out of Barmes, lol.

I picked up Jhonny Peralta as a free agent a few weeks ago in a keeper league I'm in. He's done very well for me (helping me improve to a 3-14 record after an 0-13 start :D ).

I have Bonds using up a DL spot just because it's a Keeper.

I used a primo waiver spot on Barry Bonds. But there's not like there's a ton of guys left as it is.

Yeah, if people wanted to make some (fair) deals. ARGH.

But your team is damn good on the offense side. I'm hoping so.
