Most WW trash on a 1st place team?

I'm in 3rd and I got the following off of waivers:

Juan Pierre
Carlos Beltran
Aubrey Huff
John Lackey
Morgan Enseberg

Pretty damned good pickups, I'd say.
I'm a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class... especially since I rule.

Nobody drafted Wright, Bay, Rolen, or Chavez? Or was that your original team, and the bottom ones are the waiver wire pickups?

If that's the case, I can't believe nobody drafted Pettitte.

Couldnt somebody have drafted Wright, Bay, Rolen, and Chavez, but dropped them when they weren't performing well...then he swooped in to pick them up?

Or am I just utterly confused...? :-? :-/

I don't think Bay or Wright were ever performing badly, that's the problem with that answer.

Well, if I can hold my current lead for another day, I'll move into 1st in a 14-team H2H.

Pickups dumped by other teams:
Bay
Utley
Pierzynski
Freel
Haren
Loaiza

Pickups free-floating on the wire:
Weeks
Felix (waiver claim)
Fuentes
Valverde

I'd say this group has contributed to the franchise.

Bay had a slow start -- and plays for Pitt, which doesn't help. Not sure why someone would drop Wright though.

Anyway, he did say some of the owners are "morons", so who knows? In my first year playing, I saw someone trade away Glaus for Wakefield immediately after the draft just because he had 2 other 3B (and for some reason, loved in-between-Colorado-years Castilla) -- and back then, Glaus was arguably the best 3B around and was not yet considered an injury risk although Pujols was entering his 2nd year (and I drafted him in round 5). :D
