Anyone else accidentally drop a player due to overzealous move-making?

I rushed to add Hanrahan in my ESPN H2H 16 team and dropped Marte instead of Heilman, who I was dropping since Wagner came in.

What a fuggin' moron I am.

If this topic has been discussed recently elsewhere in the forum, my apologies.

No, it hadn't been discussed and that really sucks. You should do a flurry and nonsense moves like dropping a middle reliever for Scott Rolen, then grabbing a different middle reliever and dropping Rolen and keep doing that until your Marte is down the list so far that people don't see it on the recent waiver moves list/league home page. Then hope no one notices Marte on the 2nd page of waiver moves and you can use your waiver claim.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Yeah, of course, we do. But not everyone. At least I don't think they do. It's probably too late now. People need to do it right away.

I did the same thing earlier this season and dropped Doumit instead of Olivo when I was trying to add Ryan Franklin. That severely costly to my team in the short term, but I was able to flip Franklin for (an injured) Posada, then trade Posada (healthy) for Doumit and Mike Gonzalez, bringing me back to where I was basically in the beginning of this whole mess...

Proofreading matters.
