cdubb7 (Nationals) at 1/24/2021 7:19 AM: Joey, you're 5-1 and we haven't heard from ya?
cdubb7 (Nationals) at 1/23/2021 11:49 AM: 2 starters hurt in the first 2 games. That hurts a little.
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 1/23/2021 7:26 AM: I feel like this same message pops up here like once a week, but if anyone needs a solid RP, I have LeCure (93) and Villareal (91) available relatively cheap

MikeSpaz (Giants) at 1/21/2021 7:07 PM: Literally 10 league-wide messages from the commish pertaining to FA, yet the assumption is that he just straight up forgot 😑
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 1/21/2021 7:04 PM: The first round, at least
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 1/21/2021 7:03 PM: That happened literally last year 😂

kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/19/2021 12:07 PM: sorry to hear that story. best of luck and hope things turn around for you.
storytelling4 (Rays) at 1/19/2021 10:52 AM: It's with a heavy heart I'm going to have to leave penmantchase.....I have a long uphill battle ahead with my health which is going to leave large parts of inactivity. Iv thoroughly enjoyed this league, communication with owners and believe I have at least steered this franchise into the right direction
kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/19/2021 9:46 AM: yes
Derek (Rangers) at 1/19/2021 9:46 AM: I got lost, is this spring training?
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/18/2021 9:50 AM: 17-15.....and I have given up more runs than I have scored. Pitching's ok in Cincy...it's hitting now
cdubb7 (Nationals) at 1/18/2021 7:30 AM: looking at dealing RP Perez (99) let me know if interested
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/17/2021 8:48 AM: sorry, been a bit inconsistent w sims this ST. ill try to do every hour for the rest of the day
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/16/2021 11:56 AM: Going to be another long season in Cincy with these guys not hitting...ughhhh
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/14/2021 10:42 AM: Would be nice to see the Reds play with that consistency all year
gdpicker (Rockies) at 1/14/2021 8:11 AM: Looking for a mid 80's SP. Let me know if you have anyone to offer
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/14/2021 6:25 AM: No problem, thanks for pointing it out. FYI, the most recent edits were dudes w injuries. They’re all healthy now.
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 1/14/2021 6:24 AM: Thanks
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/14/2021 6:01 AM: yea all set now
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 1/13/2021 2:43 PM: Shouldn't injuries be off?
cdubb7 (Nationals) at 1/13/2021 8:53 AM: anyone need a pretty good 2nd baseman for cheap? Eric Aybar (86) is available.
kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/12/2021 7:30 AM: if anyone needs some bullpen help, I've got Capps, Workman, and Marmol available
twins15 (Twins) at 1/11/2021 10:38 AM: Still have a few good vets left - 2B Walker (92), 3B Encarnacion (97), RP Perez (97). Just looking for picks/prospects
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/11/2021 9:15 AM: so frustrating, i do that all the time
Mattyred (Mariners) at 1/11/2021 7:28 AM: that should say 1st plus 2nd... I forget the symbols don't work in chatbox
Mattyred (Mariners) at 1/11/2021 7:27 AM: SP Loewen is a 93rk SP with 2 yrs left on a reasonable contract. Moving him for OF help or a 1st 2nd (or prospect)
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/9/2021 1:32 PM: I think I just acquired another arm for cheap tho, so hopefully I can steal a wild card.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/9/2021 1:26 PM: BNL......I'm the one that's used to blowing all my picks, but you had a lot more depth to offer. Your team looks tough for sure now
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/9/2021 1:21 PM: Being honest.....I like that we have guys who are going for it like this. I felt that if I got Arietta I would have a solid rotation 4 deep, but man the Central is sooo loaded with good teams. And Arietta's deal isn't highest per year. Picker's deal for Reed early in the league wins that
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 1/9/2021 12:10 PM: Cdubb I still have the privilege of giving out largest contract. Cabrera $35 for 10years. Although Arrietta is most per year I think.
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 1/9/2021 12:08 PM: I’m all in Joey. This either works Or I’ll be hurting when the next couple drafts roll around.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/9/2021 11:30 AM: Holy moves by the Cardinals.....so much for me thinking I can steal the Central now
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 1/9/2021 10:20 AM: Still looking for pitching.....WITHIN reason
tris (Indians) at 1/9/2021 8:15 AM: 3B Ryan Zimmerman (30yo, 94 rank) still available!!
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/9/2021 7:48 AM: FAs have been moved
cdubb7 (Nationals) at 1/9/2021 7:26 AM: Wow, just saw the Arrietta contract. You must have really wanted him. That's got to be the biggest contract ever in this league.
gmshortystuff (White Sox) at 1/4/2021 10:09 PM: Hey all if you are looking for another competitive league that mirrors a real franchise there are openings in Under Construction https://www.pennantchase.com/lgHome.aspx?lgid=838
tris (Indians) at 1/4/2021 3:50 PM: I now have a large amount of cap. Will take in bad contracts for picks/youth!!
tris (Indians) at 1/4/2021 12:20 PM: It’s a fire sale. Lots of offers. Get yours in. SP Hughes included!!!
Tris (Indians) at 1/4/2021 8:01 AM: OF Buck (30yo rnk93) and OF Bradley available also
Mattyred (Mariners) at 1/4/2021 5:58 AM: SP Adam Loewen (93rk, 30yr) available

kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/3/2021 7:38 PM: OF Corey Patterson also available
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/3/2021 6:25 PM: BOS still looking to move SP Rick Ankiel (92) and OF Carlos Beltran (95). I’d pair them w 1B Adrian Beltre (93) if necessary. Oldies but goodies w solid regressions...hit me up if you’re interested.
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 1/3/2021 4:41 PM: Looking for an OF. Have a 1st next year and/or a 2nd in 2016.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/3/2021 12:21 PM: Wow...so THAT'S what it's like to actually have cash for free agency....
storytelling4 (Rays) at 1/3/2021 10:31 AM: Willing to deal my 2nd round pick next year for an OF or pitcher on a 1 year contract
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/3/2021 9:48 AM: FAs moved
kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/3/2021 9:44 AM: Arrietta getting PAID
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 1/3/2021 8:14 AM: ill update FAs soon
kv1991 (Phillies) at 1/2/2021 3:58 PM: Phillies willing to listen to offers on SP Kevin Slowey - two great back to back seasons.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/31/2020 11:56 AM: Casey Kotchman is angry that he's back in Washington. He knows his options are limited with Votto at first base. He's a 96 rank and a good clubhouse guy. Let me know if interested.
dkiley47 (Yankees) at 12/29/2020 2:59 PM: Yankees open to packing some prospect pitchers in hopes for a larger named pitcher (Must be under age 25). OFF THE TABLE are SP Cole, RP Wood, SP Ramirez, SP Miller, and RP Leone.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/29/2020 8:16 AM: resolved FAs and tendered FAs have been moved
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/29/2020 6:52 AM: FA update coming momentarily
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/25/2020 7:54 PM: Happy holidays all!
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/25/2020 7:26 AM: happy holidays!
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/25/2020 4:36 AM: It matters when you’re trying to pretend that an outfielder was a DH
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/24/2020 3:16 PM: Yeah, me either. Does it make a difference?
Derek (Rangers) at 12/24/2020 1:57 PM: I never even considered looking at putouts when evaluating players.
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/24/2020 7:51 AM: Right over my head lol happy to help 😂
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/24/2020 7:41 AM: That was a very detailed explanation. I like it.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/24/2020 7:40 AM: Haha spaz, I was kidding. That w�s meant to be a joke. :)
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/24/2020 7:05 AM: I also think C's get a PO on strikeouts but I'm not 100% sure on that one
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/24/2020 7:03 AM: So 1B and OF tend to end up with a ton more PO while other infielders often have more of a split between PO and A
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/24/2020 7:02 AM: When a fielder makes an out, either by making a catch or putting a runner out on the base paths. When applicable, assists are awarded to fielders who throw the ball to the other fielder who actually makes the out
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/23/2020 3:10 PM: What's a putout?
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/23/2020 11:53 AM: I kinda deserve the picking lol
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/23/2020 11:49 AM: 😂😂😂
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/23/2020 11:15 AM: After.....3 years on Pennant Chase I just learned TODAY where and how to look for putouts :O
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/23/2020 10:59 AM: Time to hopefully spend some money lol
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/23/2020 7:17 AM: my bids have been sent off
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/23/2020 5:58 AM: Worth noting that individual defensive stats beyond % (i.e. D /-) have only been tracked for a handful of our seasons, so it’s tougher to see any specific successes/shortcomings at a glance in a lot of these guys’ stats from 10 seasons ago
Derek (Rangers) at 12/22/2020 3:33 PM: That's not a swear word, that is one of our opponents in the World War II fight.
Derek (Rangers) at 12/22/2020 3:33 PM: Oh no, the dWAR ****s have invaded the hall of fame voting, too.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 2:26 PM: And the draft is over. I’ll shoot out a message soon.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 12:50 PM: Yea except I dunno where you’re getting the DH thing from. You can see his putouts on his compiled stats.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 11:02 AM: There is no way to see what his Dwar was from season to season to see how far he fell off from his younger years tho
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 11:00 AM: Because....I am one of the guys who will always give value to a player that played the firld as well as hit as opposed to someone that was just a DH. I love the Red Sox, but if you asked me if David Ortiz is a Hall of Fame Candidate I would say it's marginal at best since he was almost primarily a DH. Just like Edgar Martinez.....if you don't play the field I feel it lessens your legitimacy is all
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 10:50 AM: Just saying. I think Walker deserves to be in, but I dunno why that’s connected to Klesko’s candidacy
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 10:50 AM: But why are you relying on his 43-year-old real stats?
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 10:45 AM: So if he played the OF then he was a very solid OF considering the Dwar rating then
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 10:45 AM: And he did have a negative Dwar...almost -2
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 10:42 AM: No....I thought he had a negative Dwar and that he was played as a DH......if I am wrong I am wrong, but that is how I saw him here
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 10:32 AM: klesko had significantly more OF putouts than Walker...not sure why you're clasifying him as a DH. just seems like conjecture to me.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/22/2020 9:13 AM: JUst always thought of Kelsko as a DH Benny, while Walker was a above average defender in the OF. Now if Klesko played the OF, then yes I would understand, but I really didn't see if he did, and the vote was more based on that
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/22/2020 4:14 AM: FA will open right after the slow draft ends. Thanks for everyone’s patience.
(Modified by Commissioner bennyboy44 on 12/21/2020)
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/21/2020 11:11 AM: How do you figure walker over klesko, Joey?
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/21/2020 11:02 AM: I'll apologize for not voting Walker for sure.....and ok Mike....sorry about Reyes lol :-)
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/21/2020 10:46 AM: WOW.....WTF was I smoking when I voted ?? Why would I not vote for a guy I had on my team to get the $$$
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/21/2020 10:00 AM: And I expect an apology for your Reyes comment, don't even get me started on that 😜
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/21/2020 9:59 AM: Joey you didn't vote for walker lol
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/21/2020 9:40 AM: And....while Rivera's stats aren't mind blowing, I feel they are somewhat comparable to Reyes, who had almost 50 % of the vote......not saying he deserves in but not making enough votes to be back on ballot shocks me
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/21/2020 9:39 AM: I voted for both Rivera and Walker
(Modified by Commissioner MikeSpaz on 12/20/2020)
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/20/2020 5:05 PM: The fact that someone voted for Rivera and not Walker blows my mind. The stats aren’t even comparable
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/20/2020 12:09 PM: Hall of very good, for sure. Hall of fame, no.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/20/2020 12:08 PM: Rivera didn't overwhelm me with his numbers. Seems like he was getting votes based on his name.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/20/2020 9:48 AM: You realize we’re electing them based on their PennantChase numbers, right?
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/20/2020 9:47 AM: Laughable take
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/20/2020 9:25 AM: I still have no idea how Klesko gets in 1st ballot yet Walker isn't in period, and how Rivera isn't even on the ballot anymore
rvj123 (Astros) at 12/19/2020 1:07 PM: I’m looking for a body at catcher with a few years on contract and at least a 0 dw for my 3rd? Anyone?
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/18/2020 3:43 PM: There was apparently some mixup on the BOS/NYM trade. That’s being reverted.
twins15 (Twins) at 12/18/2020 9:02 AM: Ugh, busy week of work and I didn't get my vote in. All I can say to Twins legends Matt Lawton and Chuck Knoblauch is that I am sorry!!
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/18/2020 8:39 AM: Good catch, thanks
bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 12/18/2020 8:39 AM: What about Knoblauch?
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/18/2020 8:00 AM: I'll give you names for a 2nd
gdpicker (Rockies) at 12/18/2020 7:57 AM: Larry Walker only received 28% of the vote?!?!?!
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/18/2020 7:34 AM: Lol
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/18/2020 7:28 AM: Those are his percentages by ballot. It's killing me to watch you all play with his heart like this
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/18/2020 7:27 AM: Walker, Larry: 65.0% 72.2% 70.0% 38.1% 70.0% 28.0%
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/18/2020 7:20 AM: Poor Larry Walker. No love...... Tough class to pick with all those good candidates.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/18/2020 7:17 AM: Wishing you well in your treatment and recovery, story!
mattyred (Mariners) at 12/17/2020 6:04 PM: Prayers for you story!
rvj123 (Astros) at 12/17/2020 12:28 PM: : I will trade my pick this year and next year’s 3rd round pick for a 2nd round pick next year
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/17/2020 10:34 AM: Story....get well soon man.....take care of yourself
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/16/2020 3:17 PM: Tribetime, the PC police is coming for you and your name soon. Better start thinking of a name change.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/16/2020 3:13 PM: Hope everything goes well story.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/16/2020 12:17 PM: Good luck, story!
Derek (Rangers) at 12/16/2020 12:05 PM: Kick some ass, story!
storytelling4 (Rays) at 12/16/2020 10:22 AM: Just a heads up guys, without going into detail suffering from some significant health issue at the moment. I am going into hospital on new years eve, so if my activity in responding drops going into the new year for a while that is the reason why
tribetime89 (Marlins) at 12/16/2020 9:42 AM: Anyone in need of OF help? Looking to pick up a prospect or 2 for Choo if anyones interested
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/16/2020 6:16 AM: Yessir, thank you
rvj123 (Astros) at 12/16/2020 6:01 AM: Did my HOF ballot go through ok?

JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/10/2020 10:33 AM: Reds can now put a few bulls-eyes on pitching in Free Agency and hope I bid enough. This is definitely going to be a buyers market
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/10/2020 9:53 AM: Well.....1 of those players the Braves offered is heading to Cincy...again :)
ncook44 (Braves) at 12/9/2020 11:12 AM: SS Jed Lowrie (rk81), OF Michael Saunders (rk82), SP Chad Billingsley (rk 78), Rp Tom Wilhelmsen (rk 80) are all available for picks/prospects. I would consider cap as well, but I will not trade any of them for just cap.
gdpicker (Rockies) at 12/9/2020 11:01 AM: We all love your chatter
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/9/2020 9:18 AM: I just like chatter...hell...chatr is my phone company :P
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/9/2020 9:09 AM: Nope....zzzzzz

jabarwick (Athletics) at 12/6/2020 9:35 PM: Oakland looking to move up in the 1st round. Anyone in my minors is available as well as Carlos Marmol

bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/6/2020 8:52 AM: pretty sure it's Asdrubal Cabrera...10/$35/$350
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/6/2020 8:50 AM: Hey Benny......what's the highest contract value we have had in here so far , as in total overall money. I know Picker had a huge contract one time, but it was only a 1 year deal.
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 12/6/2020 7:44 AM: LeCure available relatively cheap if you've got some cap to burn and want a good RP

bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 12/5/2020 4:45 PM: cool. Thanks

bnl1077 (Cardinals) at 12/5/2020 4:40 PM: Anyone else missing the ability to rank draftees?
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 1:41 PM: Mookie...a Yankee....(heart cracks for a second)...sigh lol
Dkiley47 (Yankees) at 12/5/2020 1:38 PM: Haha ye ai liked DeGrom but he was 25 and if he was 23 It would have been him. But ill take the 21 yr old anyway. I'm a year or two away anyways and by the time degrom would have been needed he'd have 1 or 2 years left of progressions
gdpicker (Rockies) at 12/5/2020 1:33 PM: I was legitimately happy to be 2nd this year and not 1st. I would have felt I was making the wrong choice between the two so happy you did it for me.
Dkiley47 (Yankees) at 12/5/2020 1:32 PM: Damn that was the quickest pick by the Rockies ive ever seen hahaha
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 12:50 PM: Willing to move Neshek for sure and open to offers on Cruz
mattyred (Mariners) at 12/5/2020 11:55 AM: Looking to shed Manny Corpas’ cap. 76rk RP and comes with my OAK 2nd in this draft if I get a useable expiring player in return

JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 10:28 AM: Need pen help, IF and OF depth, and a SP....I should get help, but not wanting to go loco over things.

JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 10:22 AM: Going to be a fun off-season
storytelling4 (Rays) at 12/5/2020 10:19 AM: Crazy, 23 teams have over 50 million cap room
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 9:58 AM: But 86 million to spend will help that
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 9:58 AM: WOW I didn't know HOW gutted the team was.....I do now.....yhea.....will need a new bullpen and a lot of help
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/5/2020 9:53 AM: Reds will be active this off season ( as usual), but with restraint ( will believe that when it happens however)......Reds want back in the playoffs
Dkiley47 (Yankees) at 12/5/2020 9:11 AM: Yankees willing to take on large contracts
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/5/2020 8:55 AM: and trades on...that should be it for updates for now
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/5/2020 8:55 AM: franchise/extension guys moved (and extension counter updated)

bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/5/2020 8:12 AM: progressions are done, ill give updates here as tasks are completed
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/5/2020 6:48 AM: progressions coming momentarily
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 12/4/2020 5:21 AM: alright, im gonna call NL rookie of the year :)
tris (Indians) at 12/3/2020 7:41 PM: I am in rebuild mode!!! Make offers!!! Looking for...wait for it... Youth and Picks! Yes, surprise, surprise...youth and draft picks!!
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/2/2020 6:50 PM: That would be cool to keep going ....I'm not going anywhere so sure we can March thru 2050 if ya want and I'll still be the Reds manager
hmann12 (Brewers) at 12/2/2020 4:15 PM: Willing to listen to offers for any of my players. Would like picks in return
gdpicker (Rockies) at 12/2/2020 1:31 PM: Get to the end? You think this league is just stopping when we catch up? I'm pretty sure Benny has other ideas.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/2/2020 12:00 PM: Well....even if we get to the end in a few years, we can just reboot and start with one then Picker
gdpicker (Rockies) at 12/2/2020 11:13 AM: Shocked we haven’t already put together a podcast for this league
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/2/2020 9:50 AM: Yes, I would listen at least once.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/2/2020 9:37 AM: LOL......are you saying I need to do a podcast for the league now ??
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 12/2/2020 7:36 AM: I like it. Mookie for Joey. Has a ring to it.
storytelling4 (Rays) at 12/1/2020 10:59 PM: Mookie for Joey sounds like a podcast name of the future
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 12/1/2020 9:10 AM: Damn....no Mookie for Joey this year LOL....seriously tho I hope everyone is well and that none of you have been affected in any way from this virus

bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/30/2020 10:32 AM: actually, nevermind
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/29/2020 1:38 PM: happy holidays everyone! gonna get some work done tonight
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/29/2020 8:25 AM: No worries Picker....I'm the only Canadian here...I think LOL
gdpicker (Rockies) at 11/27/2020 6:25 AM: Joey, sorry we forgot to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to you last month
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/26/2020 8:31 AM: And Happy Thanksgiving Everyone !!
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/26/2020 8:28 AM: Sounds interesting Matty....best of Luck with it !!!
mattyred (Mariners) at 11/26/2020 5:52 AM: Filling a new league with a fantasy baseball style format, draft new rosters every season with a few keepers. Starts in the year 2000 with “real” progressions! Message me if interested for an invite
Derek (Rangers) at 11/25/2020 6:59 AM: Good strategy.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/24/2020 8:29 AM: Reds are going to roll the dice and go for guys in Free Agency instead of offering tenders. Just feel like the cost is too high and have plenty of holes in the lineup that need help, and the cap I have coming back is better spent on depth
ncook44 (Braves) at 11/23/2020 7:37 PM: Braves could shed players for cap or picks as well. Could also take on $$$ in deals.
dkiley47 (Yankees) at 11/23/2020 10:02 AM: Willing to take on contracts for teams looking to shed $$$. Will come at price but depends on who you're asking me to give up
gmshortystuff (White Sox) at 11/21/2020 11:17 AM: Im looking to move players for Cap. Please make offers.
Derek (Rangers) at 11/21/2020 9:45 AM: I am of the opinion that you're a lot more likely to regret the big contract you did give out than the big contract you didn't.
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/21/2020 9:12 AM: Spend half my money on a tender, or save it and hope I get guys ?? The decisions in this league are so important.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/21/2020 7:52 AM: playoff bonuses handed out
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/21/2020 7:30 AM: hey guys, i'll start working on some offseason tasks today. i'll send out a LM once I solidify some tasks.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/20/2020 9:35 AM: $3000 is probably a lot for the rays, lol
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/20/2020 8:11 AM: Reds will have 50 million free in cap....definitely will be looking for depth
storytelling4 (Rays) at 11/20/2020 1:34 AM: Rumours circulating that a front office member has leaked that although the Ray's have a lot of cap coming this off season, that they wont be major players in free agency.....the source, who wanted to remain in named said ' the finances really took a hit when preparations were made to give a free bobble head to every fan, but ended up getting swept in wildcard.....if we cant sell these damn things, ownership is concerned that they might lose a total of $3000 of merchandise'....Tampa might be saved though, as Florida man is rumoured to be interested in buying the lot tonolay toy soldiers with
Derek (Rangers) at 11/19/2020 12:01 PM: Seriously, that's unacceptable.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/19/2020 4:35 AM: We need to petition Benny's company to allow him access to Pennant Chase. Real work can wait.He has real work to do here
Dkiley47 (Yankees) at 11/18/2020 7:15 PM: Ready for this offseason!
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/18/2020 2:49 PM: No really, it's quite amazing the run you have had here
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/18/2020 2:48 PM: Congrats Benny! Me pretending to be happy for you.
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/18/2020 2:46 PM: Thanks Ndekar. That was me venting about being so close. Better to joke about it than complain.
Ndekar (Angels) at 11/18/2020 2:03 PM: Thanks for the narrative yesterday CDubb. Very funny.
Derek (Rangers) at 11/18/2020 1:20 PM: And the Boston tyranny continues...
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/18/2020 1:10 PM: in b4 kv says "no it wasnt"
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/18/2020 1:10 PM: ffs, i though you were gonna pull that off. this friggin game. great season/series, kv.
kv1991 (Phillies) at 11/18/2020 1:09 PM: well that was ****ing painful
Derek (Rangers) at 11/18/2020 1:00 PM: Ouch, swapping the injured Patterson for Marte or Gomes is brutal.
bennyboy44 (Red Sox) at 11/18/2020 4:34 AM: WS sims will be every hour starting at 10amET
storytelling4 (Rays) at 11/18/2020 1:57 AM: I'm still yet to be convinced that JoeyT isn't Daryl Morey
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/17/2020 12:09 PM: LOL
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 11/17/2020 11:50 AM: There we go
JoeyT2870 (Reds) at 11/17/2020 10:25 AM: JoeyT's Comment : "It's nice to hear a compliment from a GM as talented as Mr. Dubb is, but I am 1 MILLION percent committed to winning a NL Central Title and a Playoff Series here in Cincy. I don't know for sure if I have the team heading in the right direction, as I guess that will depend on how Mr. Harper plays to see if I made the right decision in trading that good a talent, but.....I cam here to win, and yes I have taken my lumps and made awful decisions, but they were all done for the goal of winning, and that desire will not stop until a championship comes to Cincy"
MikeSpaz (Giants) at 11/17/2020 6:36 AM: The only part of that that I don’t believe is that JoeyT declined to comment
Cdubb7 (Nationals) at 11/17/2020 5:40 AM: There are rumors swirling that Nationals owner Mark Lerner is interested in replacing Mike Rizzo as GM. An interview with Lerner revealed, ”This is unacceptable. I give Riz enough to make it happen. He needs to finish the job.....Now that GM JoeyT in Cincinnati, he's doing some good things there. He's got that ship going in the right direction. Maybe we could give him a shot.”. Mike Rizzo and JoeyT declined to com..
