  1. Yesterday, Mariners and Angels both traded for more $ for their international budget (the pool being referenced above). IIRC, they each added about $1 million, each giving up an early round (top 5 rounds) pick from the 2017 draft.
  2. sitting on 99 homers after 42 games.
  3. from a Rangers beat guy on twitter... Available budgets for remaining Ohtani finalists: Rangers ($3.53m), Mariners ($1.57m), Angels ($1.315m), Cubs ($300k), Padres ($300k), Dodgers ($300k), Giants ($300k) These amounts represent what would essentially be a signing bonus.
  4. down to a half-dozen or so teams. mostly west coast.
  5. i bet you're right. thanks for the tip. never heard of this either.
  6. anyone else having issues with AAA callups? had been going fine until tonight, when it limited the choice of which player to demote. appears to be only showing players <$1 million in salary.
  7. the most pernicious myth of our age
  8. oso gallo is in
  9. sorry i haven't responded to your PM. hardly on here any more.
  10. flew through the latest from Bill James (the baseball guy). Called The Man From The Train. Bill (and his daughter, who did much of the research) lay out a thesis about a fiendish serial killer from the early 20th century, roaming through America on the rails. They connect several instances of entire families killed by an axe murderer in the middle of the night in their homes. Their case is quite compelling. However, the writing style is poor. Way too folksy and breezy, in contrast with the horror of the crimes.
  11. i'll have extra Catcher ABs available, too most likely to deal Brian McCann (323/436 in 399 PAs)
  12. any True Texan would have come back with "well, we were our own country"
  13. you see, there's this message board i frequent...
  14. will probably be looking for some quality SS defense and/or CF defense most likely guy i will be looking to deal is either Mike Moustakas or Eugenio Saurez (both 3Bs) as always, i will want to wait to see the WIS defensive ratings first
  15. it's nice to see that guitar-driven rock & roll was only mostly dead.
