Sleazye (Indians) at 8/21/2019 1:25 PM: Sandy Alomar on the trade block for picks/prospects or cash contributions to my IRA
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 8/21/2019 5:23 AM: im sure the dodgers owner works for the federal government ..so with that we have to excuse him as we all know that the government has no concept of a budget!! :-)
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 8/21/2019 3:41 AM: welcome to my world mattyred :-) :-(
BobUeckerRules (Angels) at 8/21/2019 12:39 AM: Lots of Monopoly money bidding in R1
Goodfella (Yankees) at 8/20/2019 8:02 PM: Looks like the c9 tracts are already on the budget coach, they are still under budget. Co tracts have been moved already
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/20/2019 7:40 PM: our current budget is what is currently on the contract page right? if so the dodgers went wwwwaaayyy over
mattyred (Class) at 8/20/2019 6:51 PM: wow... everyone outbidding Tampa... hating on the small markets
Goodfella (Yankees) at 8/20/2019 2:18 PM: Hoping we get some winning bids here.
alddavidson (Royals) at 8/20/2019 9:44 AM: If the royals were to put RP Karsay on the trade block what offers might there be? Come strong as he is young affordable and high ranking. Let me know if there’s any interest.
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 8/20/2019 2:26 AM: crazy money being tossed around
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 8/19/2019 12:57 PM: Tomorrow at 6pm PT. I will stop updating bids around 12pm noon PT tomorrow and send a reminder email to get their bids in.
BobUeckerRules (Angels) at 8/19/2019 9:00 AM: What's the deadline for FA Round 1?
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 8/18/2019 12:10 AM: I agree with the move. Should make the team more appealing to the new owner.
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/17/2019 10:08 PM: Good work commish.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 8/17/2019 9:22 PM: HOU did not sign elite/top players. That owner has been booted and Helton, Varitek and Bartolo placed back on the HOU roster. If you know any owners who would stay on top of this team (who should be competitive) feel free to invite them.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 8/17/2019 2:22 AM: Congrats BigRed. Nothing wrong with selling your future as long as you stick with it when times go south. :)
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/15/2019 8:21 PM: Congrats BRM
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 8/15/2019 7:13 PM: Definitely mortgaged the future for this ring
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/15/2019 6:49 PM: Congrats BigRed, we’ll deserved and long overdue !
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 8/15/2019 4:42 PM: Ron Gant for the Series win in extras
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/14/2019 8:02 PM: Wow, cubs bounce back. Best of 3 now
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 8/13/2019 6:08 PM: Good Luck Cubs. The two. Est teams actually made it to the WS this year. Usually an upset along the way.
CoachBirdy (Braves) at 8/13/2019 11:16 AM: Congrats Cubs, you were able to shut down my bats to get er done...we were hot the last several weeks of the seasons with our bats and then yall turned em ice cold...good luck
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/13/2019 10:53 AM: Congrats to two dominant teams . This should be a fun World Series ! To the Tigers and Braves, you’re great owners. With great teams, just ran into buzzsaws.
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 8/12/2019 8:19 PM: Lol
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/12/2019 7:51 PM: Nothing like a lil ass chewin to motviate the guys before the game
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 8/12/2019 7:36 PM: Tigers took one from Seattle!!! Upset???
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/12/2019 5:57 PM: The bats woke up!
Sleazye (Indians) at 8/12/2019 5:57 PM: Well Birdy, you were right
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/12/2019 5:25 PM: Down 3-0 I say we need to wake up the bats
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 8/11/2019 8:30 PM: All sweeps. Crazy.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 8/11/2019 6:07 PM: That being said, I’ll go out on a limb and say the Mariners play 8 more games. Sweep the entire playoffs!! Real good squad.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 8/11/2019 6:05 PM: How many did the Pirates win a few years ago?? They were darn good.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/11/2019 4:13 PM: " We did a good job putting the ball into play and we were lucky enough to find our spots and get some good timing homers in these three games to advance us a step closer to the world series, the rockies are a great time and they will be a handful for years to come. We have caught fire at tthe right time and we feel we can ride this for a long ways, next up is the cubs who had one heck of a seson this should be a fun series " Owner Birdy
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 8/11/2019 1:31 PM: Five errors in two playoffs games is apparently not how you keep playoff games close
Stisser (Orioles) at 8/10/2019 6:37 PM: A 23 win improvement and our first playoff run in this league. A long 5 year rebuild.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/10/2019 5:30 PM: Should be a lot of fun...leggo
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 8/10/2019 5:20 PM: Good luck Braves. Win or lose I’m hoping for a lot of scoring. Should make watching the games exciting.
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 8/10/2019 5:19 PM: Pretty sure the record was set this year by your team. 123 is absurd. Great season.
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 8/10/2019 2:30 PM: What's the record for wins in a season in this league?
Ironman_2632 (Reds) at 8/10/2019 12:35 PM: First playoff in nearly 10 seasons but unfortunately we get the Cubs whom we were 4-12 against this season.
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 8/10/2019 10:22 AM: A winning season!!! First one since I joined this league
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/10/2019 9:58 AM: We have been playing for what 8-9 seasons? Finally got me a division title...Lets go braves
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 8/7/2019 8:40 AM: Rosters expanded, add/drops turned off. Good luck in the final stretch.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/4/2019 9:24 PM: And just like that the season long division lead is gone....
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/3/2019 4:50 PM: omg we cant stay healthy enough to string anything imporant together...Justice gets hurt for a long peroid of time, juan gone has been out for some time and now Isringhousen...Farts!!!
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/3/2019 2:07 PM: I sweat to all these holy if I choke away the division to the expos I'm going to cry...
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 8/2/2019 8:31 PM: Got eeeemmm
mattyred (Class) at 8/2/2019 11:15 AM: Last chance for SP Wilson- 98rk ready to help a playoff team.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/31/2019 7:06 PM: David Justice tore the ball up the first half of the season....the last 15 games or so no homers then finally finds that swing...and we are having a hard time tryin to run away from the expos
alddavidson (Royals) at 7/31/2019 11:56 AM: Check out the Royals store. Great back to school buys available
mattyred (Class) at 7/31/2019 11:29 AM: Looking to move 98 Rk SP Wilson, 87rk SP Smith, and 74rk 2B Ripken... Wilson I want a good offer for, but Smith and Ripken are up for a 2nd or prospect.
Soccerstar832 (Phillies) at 7/31/2019 10:37 AM: Philly still has a couple big bats left. SS Cordero, OF Greer, OF Williams and 1B Vaughn. All could improve most teams in the playoff race.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/29/2019 1:19 PM: All-stars selected and 3 days off granted to all teams
Sleazye (Indians) at 7/27/2019 2:35 PM: Bret Boone too
Sleazye (Indians) at 7/27/2019 2:35 PM: Catcher Sandy Alomar and RP Julio Machado available for picks or prospects
mattyred (Class) at 7/27/2019 7:49 AM: Now that I’m back. All Tampa players are available for young guys and draft picks
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/26/2019 8:07 PM: Viola and next years first for Nomo
Ssrice123 (Pirates) at 7/26/2019 3:55 PM: Big. Red the pirates had the best record scored the most runs and gave up the fewest runs and still lost the WS. You have put together a great team. Good luck.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/26/2019 11:31 AM: CL Steve Kline on the trade block. Quality RP with another progression and hasn’t been signed to a contract yet so his number of years of control is up to the team that trades for him.
Soccerstar832 (Phillies) at 7/26/2019 6:31 AM: Phillies are eyeing a rebuild. Have some solid Vets for sale. Looking for youth or draft picks
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 7/25/2019 10:10 AM: This could be the most loaded team I've ever had. If I dont win this year, something is wrong.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 7/23/2019 11:27 AM: Yankees 2nd rd pick available for a starter.
mattyred (Class) at 7/21/2019 12:18 PM: Now that I’m back. All Tampa players are available for young guys and draft picks
spaniels (Expos) at 7/20/2019 11:27 AM: Expos can take in contracts in return for win-now talent
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/20/2019 4:34 AM: Excited about the draft. Looking to form a solid core with Beltre with multiple first round picks.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 7/19/2019 2:06 PM: I may be able to take some conttacts off your hand if you can add a starter to the deal.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/18/2019 1:51 PM: Then no, you will not be able to make that trade unless you are otherwise able to offload contracts at the same time .
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 7/18/2019 12:52 PM: No, they are under contract for at least 2 more years
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/18/2019 12:01 PM: If they are also expiring, yes. You won't be able to execute a trade if it puts you (or your trade partner) over budget.
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 7/18/2019 11:17 AM: Quick question. If my payroll say $0 budget remaining, but I have $22 in expiring contracts at the end of this year, can I make a trade for $19 in contracts right now?
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 7/17/2019 7:45 PM: 1st and 2nd rd Picks for NEXT SEASON up for trade. Anyone can make.me.an offer. Looking for an OF, SP, or RP with at least one year left on contract after this year. I am fine with a a year and a half rental.as long as the rank is high enough.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/17/2019 5:32 AM: I’d move Tim Naehring. He’s a 98 ranked SS..... looking for another pick.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/16/2019 7:08 PM: Injury scare for justice...luckily just 7 games and we have 7.5 games over expos...so let's keep winning boys
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/16/2019 6:38 AM: Thome and Justice the bash bros
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/16/2019 1:15 AM: Mariners just scored 15 on us in back to back games. Wow
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 7/15/2019 9:03 AM: Its not enough for the mariners to lay a beat down to the rockies. They take out two starters in the process. That's just mean
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/14/2019 1:40 PM: Justice looked at the times hes been snubbed for a all star and is makin it a point to say...are you not entertained?
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/14/2019 1:39 PM: The altitude sure woke our bats up for sure
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 7/14/2019 11:44 AM: Justice is insane right now. That series of ours was incredible. So many homers
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 7/14/2019 9:40 AM: Really was not expecting this kind of start but hey ill take it
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/11/2019 10:46 PM: 2 time Cy Young winner Rich DeLucia is pitching pretty well for a losing team. I’d deal him for the right package
spassky2 (Twins) at 7/11/2019 2:05 PM: 9 games in and already first 10 game injury. And yes this is intended to give me an excuse when the team has a worse record than last season:)
jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/9/2019 9:53 PM: First batch of games were just simmed. Not many games were played so I figured why not? We'll continue with 4 in the morning and 4 in the evening until we hit season deadlines.
spassky2 (Twins) at 7/9/2019 5:13 PM: Thanks for the info.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/8/2019 10:50 AM: FA bidding just closed before this past weekend. The remaining players are available through regular adds but cannot be signed to a contract. Anyone you have that can be signed to a contract (those players that had never been exposed to FA) can be signed to a max of 10 year contracts. Next offseason, you can bid on players with a max contract term of 10 years as well.
spassky2 (Twins) at 7/7/2019 2:42 PM: Is there a max amt of years we can offer for FA contracts?
spassky2 (Twins) at 7/7/2019 2:40 PM: Thanks Jons. Have a question about FAs. Who do we send our FA list to? Is there a max # of bids?
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/6/2019 9:17 PM: Spassky, yes I'll change for you now.
spassky2 (White Sox) at 7/6/2019 4:41 PM: Thanks bhicks.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/6/2019 3:24 PM: Looks like a real good, deep draft. I have a couple picks in the teens and another pick at 7. I’d like to move up. I’d consider trading picks or players.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/6/2019 3:20 PM: Welcome Spassky
spassky2 (White Sox) at 7/6/2019 11:16 AM: Hey everyone just joined. Can I get the twins instead the Sox please
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 7/2/2019 11:40 PM: Offseason schedule statuses updated. Rookie tags removed and budget bonuses applied.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 7/1/2019 4:51 PM: I signed an extra starting pitcher of anyone is interested. I’m still needing RPs and an otutfielder take a look if you’re interested.
alddavidson (Royals) at 7/1/2019 10:57 AM: Who is the youngest player- and has the highest rank of players on the trade block? If you are searching for a infielder with a friendly contract you may want to take a look
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/30/2019 8:43 PM: My flight just landed so FA officially closed. I’ll update all the bids when i get home and can review.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/30/2019 2:09 PM: No more updates on the home page as of now. Will update after bidding closes at 8pm PT tonight.
alddavidson (Royals) at 6/28/2019 10:26 AM: Oh my the money being thrown around
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 6/27/2019 6:56 PM: So the years/$$ are backward on my Bids for relievers. I noticed that I goofed on all my Bids and sent them in backward. I’ll resend them in the correct format shortly
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/27/2019 8:00 AM: Sent my last LM out too quick by accident. It should say “Trades have been turned on. Any trades that involve budget or draft picks must go through me (no picks more than 2 drafts out can be traded)“. I’m trying not to spam you all with LM’s so check my edit here.
jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/25/2019 3:50 PM: That's correct, Goody.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 6/25/2019 9:54 AM: Yankees lostb3 big pieces from last season. I think thats it from my team right?
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 6/22/2019 2:12 PM: Same here spaniels!
spaniels (Expos) at 6/22/2019 1:02 PM: Tried to demote unprotected players but CPU won’t let me demote all because of positional requirements
mattyred (Class) at 6/22/2019 6:34 AM: I’ll make my first pick this afternoon when I get a chance to look through the players!
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 6/20/2019 5:50 AM: 5 teams left that need to do there protect players list
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 6/15/2019 4:59 PM: Congrats!!
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 6/13/2019 5:45 AM: A finish for the history books!! Congratulations Expos!!
spaniels (Expos) at 6/12/2019 9:35 PM: I am a childhood Expos fan and it was great having Andre Dawson crushing it for the Expos
spaniels (Expos) at 6/12/2019 9:30 PM: now, can the Expos drum up some money to build an outdoor downtown park with fans re-discovering their love of baseball thereby keeping the 'Spos in Montreal and avoiding a migration to DC?
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/12/2019 9:11 PM: Great series with an awesome finish! Congrats Expos
spaniels (Expos) at 6/12/2019 8:30 PM: you made some great acquisitions, David Cone almost won it for you. Nice pick up there. Mind you my game winning pitcher, Olin, was a former Indian!
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/12/2019 6:39 PM: Sometimes that’s how baseball go ... to paraphrase Ron Washington
spaniels (Expos) at 6/12/2019 6:11 PM: Hi Sleazye, great series . Walk off homer in the 11th by the back up 3b . Not even sure why he was in the game.! Pandemonium in Montreal!
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/12/2019 6:03 PM: Congrats to the Expos on an amazing year, amazing series and amazing game 7.
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/12/2019 2:15 PM: Also, Boone with a huge game
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/12/2019 2:04 PM: Well, Indians force a game 7 but lose a huge bat in the process. Should be a fun game 7.
spaniels (Expos) at 6/12/2019 11:48 AM: Expos looking to reverse early series setback vs David Cone
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/12/2019 7:32 AM: While he hasn’t had a great year , David Cone going in game 6 trying to come back from a 3-1 deficit to force a game 7. It’s why the Indians paid him huge money
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/11/2019 9:21 AM: Blow out in Game 1
spaniels (Expos) at 6/10/2019 5:55 PM: good series to the Cubs; tough luck in the 13th inning of game 7
spaniels (Expos) at 6/10/2019 5:45 PM: Walk off homer by Willie McGee in the lucky 13th inning to defeat the Cubs and advance to the WS.
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 6/9/2019 10:27 AM: Every year, I make it to the playoffs, and then have a major injury. Bonds out for 4 games now.
spaniels (Expos) at 6/8/2019 7:45 PM: Good series with Philadelphia. Tough luck to the Phils
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/8/2019 4:37 PM: Dang. I thought i was gonna send it to a game 5. My very mediocre bullpen couldn’t get outs when I needed them. Good series Cubs. Good luck in NLCS
spaniels (Expos) at 6/8/2019 11:40 AM: okay
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/8/2019 9:03 AM: The real life seeding rules changed often enough year to year that we chose not to follow that strictly. Just keep that consistent enough with current league rules so i don’t need to keep changing it. That’s how it’s been the past few seasons without objection.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 6/8/2019 4:53 AM: The rules were always best team plays wildcard team unledd wildcard team and best team were in same division. Thats the reason a 86 win cleveland team got to play a 96 win yankees tean and seattle 90 wins and baltimore 98 wins got to play each other. But in this league we dont go with the division winner cant play the wildcard winnner if they are in same division, but thats why.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/7/2019 9:47 PM: WC automatically gets low seed in this league until WS, which is then based on record. That’s how it has been every year we’ve had wild card.
spaniels (Expos) at 6/7/2019 8:06 PM: to Goodfella, not in '97; check out the match ups then
Goodfella (Yankees) at 6/7/2019 7:04 PM: Yup in only 130 games, he was injured for a bit.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 6/7/2019 7:03 PM: Top team plays wildcard reguardless of record.
spaniels (Expos) at 6/7/2019 6:24 PM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997_Major_League_Baseball_season
spaniels (Expos) at 6/7/2019 6:22 PM: shouldn't the top team in the League play the lowest team? check out the real playoff series' from 1997.
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/7/2019 1:17 PM: That’s unbelievable , goodfellow . 60? Woah.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 6/7/2019 10:23 AM: I offered maas up for.trade 2 years in a row with no one even attempting to make an offer, glad that happ3n3d as he just blasted 60 hrs for me. 3 guys with 50 plus hr in my lineup, ill take it.
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/7/2019 9:10 AM: Still in awe that I made it. 8 games under .500 and -67 run diff.
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/7/2019 9:08 AM: Sorry Birdy, I will try to get my Rockies bats fully awake and least make the Expos try during the NLDS
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 6/7/2019 7:52 AM: Well poop 100 wins no playoff birth and third in conf....Arg!!
alddavidson (Royals) at 6/7/2019 6:17 AM: Bo Jackson to tip his cap and say goodbye to Royals fans as career in KC comes to an end against the yanks
Soccerstar832 (Phillies) at 6/6/2019 6:50 PM: Yes the NL East is stacked. Our 4th place team could have taken the NL West
Sleazye (Indians) at 6/6/2019 8:21 AM: Happened in the central a few seasons ago... things should even out
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 6/6/2019 7:37 AM: Not only win 100 and mis the playoffs but also be third in the division
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 6/5/2019 8:04 PM: I feel bad for whoever finishes 3rd in NL East. Someone is gonna win 100 games and not make the playoffs
Gman15 (Dodgers) at 6/5/2019 9:42 AM: Dalbey, don't be too hard on yourself. This is the Wild NL West, where mediocrity reigns apparently.
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/4/2019 4:54 PM: I spoke too soon. The pennant chase gods are making me pay for even hinting that I was a shoe in for the NLW crown. Riding a 7 game losing streak now
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/2/2019 10:48 AM: Not worth a league message but any DFA requests should be sent to me by 9pm PT tonight
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 6/1/2019 10:28 PM: The Rockies are looking to the the lucky team that may or may not finish .500 who make the post season.
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 6/1/2019 9:44 PM: Imagine having a amazing season at 76-42 and that being only good enough for 3rd in the division
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 6/1/2019 3:21 PM: Not bad pitching either
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 6/1/2019 3:21 PM: Hee hee
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 6/1/2019 1:53 PM: Holy cow. That mariners lineup!!!
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 6/1/2019 12:17 PM: Trade deadline has passed. You’ll need to re-work deals in the off-season.
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 6/1/2019 10:24 AM: Had trade deadline passed, or can we still make one?
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 5/30/2019 8:44 PM: 1st and 2nd rd picks available. Looking for a good RP and/or a 2B
mranastasia (Twins) at 5/30/2019 6:17 PM: My 2000 picks are also available.
mranastasia (Twins) at 5/30/2019 6:17 PM: I’ve got a 2nd round pick for a decent 2nd base option.
alddavidson (Royals) at 5/30/2019 2:56 PM: Royals offering OF Alou-91rank. 15 Homer’s this season
spaniels (Expos) at 5/29/2019 7:46 PM: The Hawk just ripping it back in Montreal
Stisser (Orioles) at 5/29/2019 6:56 PM: Usable SP Haney available for 2nd round pick.
ssrice123 (Pirates) at 5/29/2019 6:28 AM: pirates have some good players also, looking for picks. Thanks
alddavidson (Royals) at 5/28/2019 11:30 AM: There are some close races for the playoffs, i know someone might be able to use a highly ranked 3B w/10 HR this season, a 300 hitting 2B w/15 Hr or an all star OF from last year who has 13 HR this year and an affordable contract. Check out the Royals market place
Greywolves (Giants) at 5/27/2019 12:31 PM: Giants on a huge streak ..... a 21 game LOSING streak :(
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 5/27/2019 11:56 AM: All Stars selected and 3 days off granted after day 90. Hope that helps bring back any injured players for the stretch run
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/27/2019 4:48 AM: Trade deadline coming up pretty soon. Message me if you need someone. I have a legit Ace, some real good hitters and maybe a bullpen guy.
mranastasia (Twins) at 5/26/2019 4:43 PM: Yeah, I can’t explain it, but I have much wider swings in results in this league than any other. An 80plus 300 hitter could hit 280 or 215 for the season, with no explanation.
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 5/26/2019 2:16 PM: Ive had a similar issue with Sheffield. I way overpaid for guy who cant seem to hit over .250 and 25HRs in COL.
Mranastasia (Twins) at 5/26/2019 1:31 PM: His average has actually went up 10 points since being moved down the lineup, but whatever.
Mranastasia (Twins) at 5/26/2019 1:29 PM: I moved him to 7th because he isn’t producing. How would batting position effect a performance in a simulation, other than possibly limit at bats, which I’m not appear to because he’s mainly generating outs.
Chubbach24 (Cubs) at 5/25/2019 9:29 PM: why is he hitting 7th? Especially if you're using him as a DH. His placement in the lineup is probably whats killing him
mranastasia (Twins) at 5/25/2019 6:05 PM: Injuries... and still trying to understand how 98 ranked piazza is hitting .214 with an obp under .300 still.
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 5/22/2019 8:58 PM: Injury bug just hit the mile high.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/22/2019 7:19 PM: Gregg Jeffries gutting 381 with an OBP over 450.
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/22/2019 6:37 PM: He’s a stud , age is the only reason he fell. You got a great one !
Harry86 (Tigers) at 5/22/2019 6:02 PM: El Duque 3-0 with sub 2.00 ERA
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/21/2019 6:45 PM: Curt Schilling is available for someone’s pen
Harry86 (Tigers) at 5/21/2019 10:45 AM: El Duque with CG win in his first start with the Tigers
Goodfella (Yankees) at 5/21/2019 10:19 AM: Tejada to make his debut in tonights sims, missed making the moves before the first sims of the day. Also making their debut will be rp fox and sp dempster. Time to go for broke and see who can and cant play, some big changes will be coming this offseason, tired of being bad in this league, time to go george in this piece.
Stisser (Orioles) at 5/21/2019 8:32 AM: Welcome to the Orioles Derek Lee, 5-5 3HR 7RBI in his debut. It can only go downhill from here.
BaltimoreChop (Blue Jays) at 5/20/2019 8:28 PM: Sorry, wrong league!
BaltimoreChop (Blue Jays) at 5/20/2019 8:26 PM: MILB LH SP B.Olson (21yo milb) available for quality RH SP

spaniels (Expos) at 5/18/2019 2:57 PM: Todd Helton is one fab PC player
Gman15 (Dodgers) at 5/18/2019 2:17 PM: Open to trading quality, experienced folks that can help now for picks

Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 5/17/2019 12:53 PM: Edits aren’t done for the pitchers. That’s just a starting point for most of them.
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/17/2019 6:45 AM: Got good relief pitchers (just one, but all are available) available for a pick
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 5/17/2019 4:33 AM: well looking at the pitchers in this years draft .... it looks likes it has become decidedly weaker
ssrice123 (Pirates) at 5/16/2019 11:56 AM: anyone on the Pirates can be had send over offers
alddavidson (Royals) at 5/15/2019 11:10 PM: KC has placed some on the trade block. You know the drill, looking for draft picks and younger talent.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/15/2019 5:25 PM: He’s hitting .222. I hope he finds something.
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/15/2019 12:51 PM: (Starting halfway through the season because he “retired” and this wasn’t subject to drug tests, is what I was getting at. ... -and then Puts up ridiculous numbers are like age 42....!
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/15/2019 11:12 AM: Exactly , like Clemens did when he pitched for the Astros back in the day
spaniels (Expos) at 5/15/2019 9:52 AM: the 30 day testing window?
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/15/2019 8:12 AM: Don’t worry Hicks, he’s using this time to really be consistent with his secret regiment of steroids
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/14/2019 1:20 PM: I lost Palmeiro for 30 days earlier.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/14/2019 1:19 PM: Ramon Martinez is still available for the right deal. Also have some great bats. Naehring, Gilkey, Bonilla, etc. Schilling and Guardado are in the bullpen.
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 5/14/2019 12:00 PM: Ya injuries are happening early this year. Sheff and Sweeney have both been hurt for short 7-10 game stints along with a RP for 12
Coachbirdy (Braves) at 5/13/2019 7:32 PM: Get out to a 16-8 start only for my two best relievers in Wagner and Rincon to go down with a 10 day and 20 day injury...lets not fall apart here braves
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/13/2019 6:54 PM: Thanks. Anyone open to trading picks message me.
dalbey52 (Rockies) at 5/13/2019 5:18 PM: If Mussina had a few more years left on his deal I would have jumped on it. Couldnt afford to give up a #3 pick right now. Now you got the #2. Good get Rangers
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/12/2019 5:13 AM: Rangers send Mussina to Boston for the #2 overall pick
spaniels (Expos) at 5/11/2019 11:33 PM: where?
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/11/2019 7:26 PM: Wow
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 5/11/2019 4:25 PM: Blockbuster deal between Boston and Texas
Goodfella (Yankees) at 5/11/2019 2:05 PM: Maas on the block for a top 10 pick or two 1st rd picks for teams picking lower i the draft. Or maas for a younger ace and bullpen help.
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 5/11/2019 12:38 PM: Draft class uploaded for viewing. Haven’t touched their stats yet.
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/10/2019 5:20 PM: Anyone with a high pick looking for an ace?
bhicks42 (Rangers) at 5/10/2019 5:19 PM: I like blind bidding but that talk is a few days old.
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 5/10/2019 4:49 PM: only looking at simming of games so owners can manage rosters as players need rest and or injuries so as to adjsut lineups accordingly
Jons_lover (Diamondbacks) at 5/9/2019 9:17 PM: Injury length max has been reduced to 30 games.
Jons_lover (Holding) at 5/9/2019 11:01 AM: Next year we will introduce interleague play during the season with the addition of AZ and TB. I may be able to copy the schedule from pennant chase allowing us to have off-days built into the schedule (rather than doing it manually every 8 days)
Jons_lover (Holding) at 5/8/2019 9:36 PM: Completely blind bidding is a hell of a lot easier for me lol
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/8/2019 7:47 PM: Both systems have their benefits , I run a league that a few in this league are in which uses a 2 round system, and a large part of me wishes we used the system we use in this league ... but they both have their merits
BigRedMachine90 (Mariners) at 5/8/2019 5:51 AM: I'm fine the way it is. I like other teams over spending.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 5/8/2019 4:30 AM: For the record i wasnt complaining and i personallyblike the blind bid and done system we havee here. I think it works and even on 2 tier bidding it gets even crazier so for me this system works.
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 5/8/2019 3:35 AM: one thing about blind bids those of us that are low market teams have a slight chance to get a free agent..open bidding low market teams will have no chance for a star player
tacomaboy57 (A's) at 5/8/2019 2:04 AM: even with open bidding your going to get high priced bids...but i do agree there are some bids that are in rarified air
Jons_lover (Holding) at 5/7/2019 9:48 PM: Yeah, information leaks out though, so teams at least have a vague idea what other offers are out there. I'm cool either way.
Sleazye (Indians) at 5/7/2019 9:30 PM: I’d have to say, ind bidding strikes me as a bit more realistic ... it’s not like agents are honest with teams .... but I do understand the complaints
Dalbey52 (Rockies) at 5/7/2019 8:22 PM: I would have done this contract on Thompson regardless. Findin..
