Congratulations to Josh Bernier and his team Gramma Nutt Crushers on winning the RotoAuthority League!  Josh joined the RotoAuthority League by winning the Silver League last year.  He won this year by a 7.5 point margin in the 12-team league.  How did he do it?

Josh made a pair of trades this year.  On April 30th he sent Kevin Youkilis to another club for Felix Hernandez.  Felix tossed another 213.3 innings with 11 wins, a 2.28 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 201 Ks.  Youk's owner got only three months out of him due to a thumb injury, but he did have a .319-16-50-61-3 line in 273 ABs after the trade.  In more of a minor trade on May 19th, Josh traded Chipper Jones for Trevor Hoffman.

 Josh made 85 transactions, which ranked 7th in our league.  His pickups of Kevin Slowey and Ted Lilly were stellar.  Most of Josh's key players came from his draft, though, and the strategy paid off in the form of a $900 payout.
