Royalsblues (Athletics) at 6/18/2019 5:38 PM: He’s pretty impressive. Looks like a repeat MVP is basically in the books.
ab1958 (Yankees) at 6/16/2019 7:39 PM: Frank Robinson looking for Triple Crown.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 6/15/2019 9:21 AM: I will leave the league private for a few days before opening up to the public
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 6/15/2019 9:20 AM: We had an owner that had to leave the league as a result of real-life reasons. At this time, the Reds are open if anyone would like to switch teams. I also would appreciate if owners pass the word in other leagues to fill the open slot,as well as the open slots we will have next season.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 5/31/2019 8:12 PM: Thanks, Lee. It’s exhausting for me, and I can’t imagine how my wife gets through the day. But it’s pretty amazing.
leej (Red Sox) at 5/28/2019 9:47 PM: congrats on the baby commish raising a child is a lot of work, but so worth it
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/27/2019 7:55 PM: Welcome LilPadre. We are now at capacity
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/27/2019 4:38 PM: We have one more team to fill and then get set up for the expansion draft
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/27/2019 4:06 PM: Welcome Michael! I’ll switch you over.
Michaelbylsma (Senators) at 4/27/2019 2:27 PM: Thanks for the add. I’d prefer the Angels, please.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/25/2019 5:27 AM: Sent you a message before seeing this. I’ll switch you over. Welcome scdeac!
SCDEAC (Senators) at 4/25/2019 4:44 AM: Can I have Detroit please? thanks!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/24/2019 5:12 PM: I’ve asked a few owners in some of my other leagues, as well as made this league public. As of now there are no bites. I encourage owners to put some feelers in their leagues so we can get filled up. Once we have a full league, we will get started on the expansion draft and move forward from there
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 4/17/2019 7:14 PM: Congrats Os

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 2/15/2019 8:58 AM: Doesn’t look like he’s going to get there, but 83 so far is crazy
Gallo76 (Braves) at 1/27/2019 10:17 PM: George Crowe (Braves) is on pace to hit 100 homers.
Jrusso (White Sox) at 1/25/2019 8:22 AM: Can I have the Reds please
RoyalsBlues (Athletics) at 12/29/2018 6:33 PM: Speaking of milestones, I've been thinking about starting a Hall of Fame vote. I think this league has been going long enough to support that, almost 30 years.
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 12/29/2018 12:33 PM: Musial reached 3000 hits
Gallo76 (Braves) at 12/28/2018 5:34 AM: Thanks, Blues, leej, and Mike

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 12/27/2018 10:14 AM: Going to game 7. And still a home team has not won.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 12/27/2018 4:27 AM: Heading back to Milwaukee, the Braves take a 3-2 lead. Visiting team has won each game this far. Day off granted, next sim about noon CST
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 12/26/2018 10:50 AM: Yankees taking a 2-0 lead back to New York for game 3. Day off has been granted.

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 12/23/2018 3:11 PM: Yankees officially clinch the AL. They will face off with the Milwaukee Braves in the WS
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 12/13/2018 9:36 AM: Damn Yankees
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 11/19/2018 6:53 PM: Chicago considers electing Ernie Banks for mayor in the 1949 election.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/19/2018 1:31 PM: Whatever I can do to win!
Baberuth21 (Indians) at 11/19/2018 5:21 AM: Thanks for the jinx Royalsblues, Indians 1-7 since your post :-P
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/17/2018 7:19 PM: Just a heads up, I'm in BFE West Virginia so my service may be spotty for the next several days
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/17/2018 4:53 AM: Parity in the NL with 7 teams either 5-4 or 4-5. Indiana haven't lost and A's 8-1 behind them.
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 11/10/2018 9:40 AM: Thanks. Yankees were tough.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 11/9/2018 8:25 PM: Congrats Cards!
bobknightrules (Senators) at 11/9/2018 5:36 AM: congrats to the Cards !!!!! Thank goodness 57 is over but 58 is not looking much better for the Sens
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/9/2018 4:11 AM: Cards win in 7!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/8/2018 5:44 PM: World Series is turning out to be a good one. NY tied up the series and heading to game 7
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/6/2018 6:39 PM: Despite ending the season 27 games back, this A's team did something their real life counterparts never did-have a winning team in KC. I guess that's what happens when you don't trade all of your good players to the Yankees for has-beens and never-will-be's. Didn't seem to bother the Yankees though lol
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/28/2018 4:02 PM: In the name of fairness we should consider taking 50% of your team and giving those players to the rest of the league!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/28/2018 4:01 PM: That's impressive!
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 10/26/2018 9:13 AM: Cards on a 30-5 run.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/14/2018 8:00 PM: Welcome Maxzubnik. As always, 10 days before he can trade.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/14/2018 9:00 AM: The Reds are looking for a new owner. The lease spread the word it any good owners you know. Extra salary cap money for any referrals.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/26/2018 6:33 PM: One thing Ratchan did at the beginning of the league(out of necessity) was to have each team reduce their roster to 20 before the supplemental draft. I felt it made for a more interesting off season. Any thoughts on bringing something like this back to the mix?
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/25/2018 7:41 AM: First sims will be early Thursday morning with a Wednesday for owners to get their lineups set
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/25/2018 7:40 AM: Supplemental draft will be run at about 4 pm pacific, with free agency turned on at 5 pacific. That is the hope anyway, unless I get held up at work.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/25/2018 7:11 AM: Welcome all!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/24/2018 6:40 AM: Welcome Rayfleet! We now have a full league. As Ray was previously in the league, I will waive the 10 day no trade rule.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/23/2018 2:58 PM: Welcome Lpaul. Everyone it's, he cannot trade for 10 days.
Lpaul (White Sox) at 9/23/2018 12:47 PM: Can I have the Orioles please ?
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/21/2018 4:17 PM: Got it Rwash. Please not rwash cannot trade for 10 days
rwash (White Sox) at 9/21/2018 2:34 PM: please switch me to reds
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 6:16 PM: Mm about the no-trade rule for BabeRuth21. I goofed and forgot he was the previous owner
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 5:44 PM: BabeRuth21 has joined. In keeping with the rules he cannot trade for 10 days.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 3:59 PM: I have now made the league public. Hopefully this is attract (good) owners. I will soon make an offseason schedule to get 1957 started.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/19/2018 6:05 PM: I'm planning on going public tomorrow or the next day since I'm not getting much interest from my other leagues. I would like to have a full league before going on, but if it takes too long I will take care of the open teams until we fill up
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/19/2018 6:00 PM: I should mention, if anyone wants to switch teams to one of the open ones, let me know
Gallo76 (Braves) at 9/16/2018 12:07 PM: Well-run league with good owners. Thanks to all.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/16/2018 6:58 AM: If someone is willing to be commish I can help by being vice. I don't have time to take on the full load, but would hate to see a successful league shut down
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/15/2018 9:42 PM: Nobody has shown interest in being commissioner, so I think I willl shut down this league.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/14/2018 5:12 AM: Thank you for being in my leagues.
leej (Red Sox) at 9/14/2018 4:58 AM: thanks for your time ratchan
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/11/2018 8:31 PM: "news" story (it is not so new at this point.)
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/11/2018 8:30 PM: I will get started on preparations for 1957 as soon as I can. For now, please enjoy reading and re-reading the new story above.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/9/2018 10:00 PM: Thanks, cuBs.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/9/2018 9:27 PM: Congrats white Sox!
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/7/2018 5:33 PM: The White Sox have clinched their first AL pennant since 1935!!!
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/3/2018 12:26 AM: Late 2010’s to boot.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/2/2018 2:15 PM: 2010's? You must be patient.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/2/2018 11:11 AM: I never specified which decade.....
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/2/2018 10:23 AM: The State of Pennsylvania just denied our request for entry.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/1/2018 3:14 PM: REMINDER - The trade deadline is after game 110.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 10:22 PM: Yes, the 60's were pretty sweet for Cubs, if I recall.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 9:46 PM: We’re looking forward to a new decade.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 7:35 PM: Indeed you are. I had failed to notice that. Even though our teams are in the same city, it can be hard to see you way down there from up here in the penthouse.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 6:58 PM: We’re creeping our way back though.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 2:11 PM: Yes. I noticed that you had departed the Pennsylvania section of the standings.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 6:52 AM: Cubs are considering getting to .500, holding off on Altoona plans at the moment.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/29/2018 5:22 PM: REMINDER - The all-star break is coming up after game 82.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/27/2018 4:03 PM: Scranton Cubs? Altoona Cubs? Harrisburg Cubs? Hmm...
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/27/2018 7:02 AM: Cubs are considering relocation into PA.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/17/2018 6:32 AM: Congrats Dodgers!
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/17/2018 12:11 AM: Boring series.
RayFleet (Redlegs) at 8/15/2018 12:12 PM: Big three-game New York/Boston series coming up!
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/10/2018 7:50 PM: REMINDER - The trade deadline is after game 110.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 8/1/2018 4:51 PM: Wow .. Pirates no-hit by Cardinals Schmidt 1st game of the season..
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/29/2018 9:07 PM: You waited a whole season to say that.
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 7/29/2018 7:48 PM: Down goes Frazier!!!
Gallo76 (Braves) at 7/29/2018 6:07 AM: Thanks, Mike.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/28/2018 2:19 PM: Only if you thiink you are too soft to take the ribbing.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/28/2018 6:53 AM: Should I say my goodbyes now to the group? ;)
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/28/2018 2:46 AM: Glad to hear it, 1670. I guess I'll have to rib you more sinc eyou like it.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/28/2018 2:26 AM: Congrats Braves! No worries from my part Ratchan. I enjoy your leagues and ribbing.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:16 PM: I would also like to add that, despite what Mr Hartley says in his user feedback about me (owners with access to the Commish Tools can view it), I never had any issues with him about trade offers being declined. Much of what he wrote is true (the parts about me needling him), but I have no idea what he is taling about regarding trade problems.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:12 PM: I would like the league to know that I did purposely try to irritate BuddyHartely. He never did anything to warrant the boot, but I was so sick of the guy that I decided to pick on him to drive him to quitting. Mission accomplished.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:03 PM: Peace, at last.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/27/2018 7:51 AM: Due to an obvious personal dislike on the part of the Commissioner, for whatever reason, I'll remove myself from his league. No idea what his problem is, but there is no point being in a league where the commissioner insists on constantly throwing snide remarks at one owner. I've enjoyed the league and the competition, but really don't need this kind of unasked for personal BS.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 4:49 AM: With both leagues decided, I will now sim the rest of the season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 4:49 AM: The Yankees have clinched the AL, so it is now official. The team from Cleveland will not be extending its world series losing streak to six.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 1:42 AM: Milwaukee has clinched the team's first ever NL pennant.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 8:54 PM: On the other hand, if you feel it is getting a bit old you may want to try another league. There are many to choose from.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 8:50 PM: I am glad you can handle it, because I intend to continue giving you grief.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:46 PM: I've taken it with good grace to this point, but its getting a bit old.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:45 PM: But Post-Seasons are still a crapshoot, though I do obviously know how to prepare for them. **** happens. But if you get your jollies by highlighting the negatives of the Indians every time you get the chance, then go for it. That's why you are the commissioner. You set the tone.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:43 PM: As to post-seasons, I once lost 10 Auto-League Post-Seasons in a row. My record is now 18 Rings in 37 Postseasons, so just under 50%. In Custom Leagues, I just won a Ring in Legendary Losers, so I have 4 Rings in 10 Postseasons, so a clean 40%. I'd put that record up against the vast majority of owners on PC.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:37 PM: At the time I left the Browns, II wasn't actually planning to return to the league. But yes, the Indians did offer more tools to work with, then did the hapless Browns. Though in real life, the Indians only won the AL Pennant in 1948 and then in 1954, so it wasn't like they were a lock to win anything. 1949-1953 was the 5 year Yankee Dynasty years, when they won not only the AL Pennant, but won 5 consecutive World Series as well.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 4:26 PM: And, by the way, one thing an owner can do beyond "keep[ing] his fingers crossed" is exactly what you did, give up on the hopeless Browns and switch to far more talented team in Cleveland. That was a very bold move. A bit weak, but definitely bold.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 4:19 PM: When you can rationalize like that, nothing will get you down. That's terrific!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 12:57 PM: I never lose any sleep about a lost post-season series. A short 7 game series can go either way, and there is little an owner can do about it, other then to prepare as best he can, and then keep his fingers crossed.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 12:54 PM: Exactly! To lose 6 World Series in a row, you FIRST have to GET to the World Series! LOL
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 5:34 AM: I guess this means you won't be losing your 6th straight world series, either.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 3:01 AM: They seem to have regained their footing somewhat, but with just 20 games remaining in the season, it would take a total collapse from the Yankees at this point for Cleveland to win their 7th Consecutive AL Title.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/25/2018 3:17 AM: Very strange stretch for the Indians, as they go from an 11 game winning streak to losing 10 of their next 11. From a 1 game lead, to 7 games back.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/24/2018 9:26 PM: Cleveland just ran into a brick wall known as the Chicago White Sox.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/21/2018 7:26 PM: At the all-star break, Pennsylvania is 77-169. Things seem to be looking up for those three teams. Of course, what other direction could they possible look at this point?
leej (Red Sox) at 7/20/2018 5:05 AM: I'll trade anyone If the price is right
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/19/2018 7:33 AM: 40 days! Tough one leej! Same deal as last season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/19/2018 5:27 AM: Maybe trade him to the White Sox.
leej (Red Sox) at 7/19/2018 5:03 AM: Williams hurt again ,crap
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/19/2018 1:32 AM: Senators have been hot out of the gate, but will they be able to sustain it through the 2nd 60 game stretch?
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/17/2018 6:48 AM: Quite a tear, comparatively.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/17/2018 1:13 AM: Pennsylvania has gone on a 7-14 tear to improve to 24-90 on the season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/16/2018 2:21 AM: Pennsylvania update - Now 17-76.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 7/15/2018 5:32 PM: I’m up to moving lol Need to shake things up ..
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/14/2018 8:17 PM: Teams from Pennsylvania are a combined 13-59. This might be a new low. Hard to say, though, as there have been some pretty rough seasons in that state. Maybe one of those teams should consider a fresh start further west.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/14/2018 3:34 PM: The White Sox just handed the Orioles the worst loss in team history, 18-0.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/13/2018 3:32 AM: Fortunately the 1st 50 games of any league are seldom a good reflection of the final league standings.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/12/2018 11:19 PM: Spooner and friends will turn it around. Somehow the Cubs beat Spooner, do you know something’s not right in Brooklyn.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/12/2018 6:57 PM: What's wrong with Brooklyn? The Dodgers have started the season 0-5.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/9/2018 7:00 AM: Congrats dodgers! And welcome reds
Rainman (Orioles) at 7/9/2018 6:32 AM: Baltimore is in need of SP, RP and a 1B. Just looking for warm bodies at this point. I have an excess of mediocre OF to use as trade bait...sigh.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/9/2018 6:09 AM: Dorsey Riddlemoser!! Love it!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/9/2018 6:01 AM: Got the LM which answered my question, thanks ratchan!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/9/2018 4:21 AM: Can't remember what number we have to cut down to.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 7/8/2018 4:26 PM: Congrats Dodgers ! Welcome Reds !
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/7/2018 8:33 PM: Welcome Reds
BaltimoreChop (Reds) at 7/7/2018 5:35 PM: I'm new. Red Legs. Not exactly Big Red Machine.
leej (Red Sox) at 7/7/2018 5:43 AM: congrats Bums!
Singaporerat (Dodgers) at 7/7/2018 4:21 AM: Thanks, buddy
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/7/2018 3:13 AM: Makes sense.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/7/2018 2:08 AM: I'd much rather have 6 straight division titles plus a World Series championship, then have nothing to show for it.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/7/2018 2:06 AM: In order to lose 5 World Series in a row, you first have to win the Division .... something that Cleveland has been able to do for 6 straight seasons. I'll take the "glass half full" approach every time! Lol
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/7/2018 2:04 AM: Congrats to the Dodgers ! Great team this year, and a title well-deserved! Gld the Indians could put a bit of a scare into you and force a 7th game.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/28/2018 3:10 PM: I think owners that do that ought to be booted from the league.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/28/2018 1:32 PM: Buddy - I completely agree on your trade comment.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/28/2018 5:56 AM: What a GREAT battle in the AL!! I hope this lasts right to the last week of the season!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/27/2018 6:19 AM: I finally just pulled back a trade offer that I made before the season started. I don't mind having trade offers rejected, but I ****ing hate it when they get completely ignored.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/27/2018 3:58 AM: Yankees are doing amazingly well considering that they lost Mantle for something like 48 games! That has to hurt!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/27/2018 3:55 AM: I've got my voodoo dolls all prepared! lol
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/27/2018 3:17 AM: You are just trying to jinx them like you did my White Sox.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/26/2018 11:53 PM: Could it be the Yankees year to finally win the division? 5 game lead on the rest of the pack.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 6/23/2018 1:34 PM: Looking for a Decent SP . .
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/21/2018 6:55 PM: No comment.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/21/2018 6:51 PM: White Sox off to a red-hot start! Could this be their year?
Roadmap (Pirates) at 6/16/2018 8:12 PM: Congrats to Cards !
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/14/2018 7:57 PM: Cleveland has to content itself with winning the last five AL Pennants, and hope we get another crack at a World Series ring.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/14/2018 7:55 PM: Congrats to fightingtigers and the Cards!! Great series!!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/14/2018 7:44 AM: Bedtime for me, with the Cards leading the series 2 games to 1. Will I wake up to another St.Louis championship, or will my Indians have rallied? I won't lose a lot of sleep on the possible outcomes! lol
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/14/2018 3:25 AM: Best of luck in the World Series, fightingtigers!
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/13/2018 10:10 PM: I wouldn't be surprised if that streak reaches eight pretty soon.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/13/2018 10:06 PM: Indians have now lost 5 straight WS games.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/13/2018 6:07 AM: Joe Dobson shut out the Yankees for his 20 win. He is Chicago's first 20-game winner since the White Sox' glory years of the mid-thirties.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/13/2018 5:40 AM: Sorry, that blowout was over the A's.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/13/2018 5:40 AM: Looks like the 26-9 blowout of Boston might have been the Indians high-water mark. They had a 5 game lead, with 10 games to go. Since then they are 1-5 and the lead over the Yankees has shrunk to 1 game. Ouch!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/12/2018 7:30 PM: Luke Easter!!!! 5 for 5, with 3 HR and .... 14 RBI!!!!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/12/2018 3:43 AM: In other news, Bob Lemon had his no-hit bid vs the Red Sox broken up in the top of the 8th by a Dom Dimaggio single. And Lou Brissie, in his first game back after his 31 game injury, picks up the win against Detroit in a 7-6 thriller.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/12/2018 3:37 AM: More like shell-shocked! LOL 6 players going on the injured list in the span of less then a week (real time) can do that to a person.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/11/2018 9:46 PM: Currently, there are 9 players on the injured list. That does not seem unusual to me. I think Mr. Hartley is paranoid.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/11/2018 6:53 AM: Damn! Truly sorry to see that, Singapore! Injuries have been going off the charts in the last few days. Last time that happened, it was because gbacci was tinkering with stuff. Wonder if he is up to something again. Though I really haven't noticed injuries as a factor except in this league. My Indians have had more injuries in the past few days then 2 of my other leagues have had in total.
singaporerat (Dodgers) at 6/11/2018 5:46 AM: Buddy, you jinxed me, Sullivan is now out 45 days. I'm screwed.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/11/2018 4:25 AM: Luke Easter marks the 6th consecutive Indian to go out with injuries since Lou Brissie went down for 31 games.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/9/2018 9:01 AM: Yup, I did figure that looked like an all in move, Singapore. Good luck with it. Hopefully, your new acquisition won't be come the victim of a 31 game injury like Lou Brissie just was. Currently 6-2, with a 1.07 ERA in 50.1 IP, he will be sorely missed.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/9/2018 7:01 AM: Cleveland loses 2 players to lengthy injuries, at a critical time in the season with the injury-free Yankees breathing down their necks.
singaporerat (Dodgers) at 6/9/2018 3:47 AM: Yep, BuddyHartley, I'm going all in.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/8/2018 9:03 PM: Dodgers gambling on a Pennant.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/8/2018 9:03 PM: Quite the deal between White Sox and Dodgers! White Sox get 21 future seasons out of Moore (9 - 6 quality), Bridges (7) and Amoros (5), while Brooklyn gets 6 future seasons out of Sullivan (1), Aloma (1) and Kretlow (4), none of which are quality.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/8/2018 1:42 AM: Russ Sullivan seems to like A's pitching. He has now had a 4HR game and a 3HR game vs. Philadelphia this season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/6/2018 8:02 PM: REMINDER - The trade deadline is after game 110.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/6/2018 1:57 PM: Russ Sullivan hit four homeruns in a game against the A's.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/5/2018 11:52 PM: "Toothpick" Sam Jones sent down to the Minors to work on his control. His 13 BB in 14.1 IP wasn't making Indians' manager, Hank Greenberg very happy.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/5/2018 11:49 PM: 46 year old Satchel Paige having fun this season, pitching like a 20 year old.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/5/2018 10:01 PM: REMINDER - The all-star break is coming up after game 82.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/5/2018 9:07 PM: White Sox are only 6 games out of the Divisional lead, with 84 games left to play. Well within striking distance, especially if the Yankees and Indians hit a bad spell.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/5/2018 9:13 AM: Dodgers are keeping the cards more than honest.
ratchan (White Sox) at 6/2/2018 2:04 PM: I think I can say already that sweep will be the highlight fo the city of Chicago this season.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/2/2018 7:09 AM: sorry all the Cubs have to milk this for all it’s got.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/2/2018 7:08 AM: Cardinals vs Cubs: 3-3, Card vs rest of NL: 32-3.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/2/2018 7:06 AM: Cubs swept the Cards. This will clearly be the highlight of the season for Cubs fans this year.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 6/1/2018 6:59 AM: They may be rioting in the streets, buddyhartley!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 6/1/2018 12:56 AM: Fans in St. Louis are shell-shocked, as their beloved Cards go into a seemingly irreversible tailspin, losing 2 of their last 10!
ratchan (White Sox) at 5/31/2018 10:22 PM: They were delicious.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 5/31/2018 9:43 PM: beat .... not eat LOL
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 5/31/2018 9:43 PM: Congrats to the Dodgers, who finally managed to eat the Cards!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 5/30/2018 9:55 PM: 16-0 now!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 5/30/2018 2:23 AM: With that pitching staff, its a distinct possibility.
ratchan (White Sox) at 5/29/2018 7:52 PM: I predict the Cardinals will go undefeated this season.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 5/25/2018 12:45 AM: In 1952, Bob Feller had his first losing season since he broke in as a rookie in 1936. Pretty .....
