Please put position before player name. This trade was completed first because it saved Colorado money.

So unless Colorado trades away a big contract, they deal is dead.

I don't know what to do with all this money I have now. Although I have some funky contracts to work through with the Nats. What in the world is going on with Strasburgs contract... yeash.

So Alex Cobb was injured Dtd for some time but he was still available to play. Would him being on the disabled list prevent him from being traded?

He's on the DL with more than 7 days remaining injured (8 weeks of injury time remain). Players can't be traded under those circumstances.

It's wild taking on a new team that's so different than the last.

I look at the Pads roster, finances, minors.... and realize that there's so little hope for being able to fix this thing in the next 5 seasons without some outlier thing happening like getting a new owner with money, or a few of the prospects turning into David Bedgood. Like, there's nothing I think I can do to move this rebuild along. It's so bleak!

Honestly luck has a lot to do with it. When I was with AZ I was in a similar situation at the beginning and had only one really good trade piece in Goldy. Of course I got really lucky and was able to trade for a superstar core. But you'll soon have prospects everyone else will want which is nice.

What I'm saying is his AAA stats last year had him batting .545, and this year he's suddenly batting .220 in AA?

Jarrod Dyson has 23 more stolen bases than the next closest player in the AL, that's kinda crazy.

Also I now have FOUR players on the 60 day DL, including 2 SP and my starting first baseman. I guess by my team rankings its because this team is like the real world Mariners, good offense, trash pitching.

Notes: Toronto's Bautista to miss the rest of season due to torn ligament in his thumb. Padres' Mazzoni fractured his elbow and will miss the remainder. Seattle's Tony Zych tore his rotator cuff, also out for season.

In lighter news, Ryan Braun hit his 300th career HR.

Michael Brantley injured with DTD, 'unknown' recovery time. That's new. says he has blurred vision....but I'm still playing him and he is still getting hits, lol.

Tomorrow's sim will stop short on Sept 1 for the roster expansion.

I just found this out the other day when I was dealing with a DTD injury, but if you go into the individual player's screen, in the lower left where the morale and popularity is you can see which aspects of the game that the DTD injury will effect like hitting, base running, etc.

Yea. You have to be real careful if your manager has control of lineups abs pitching rotations.

I brought up two RP, and one got only 1 out while giving up 3 ER

Officially eliminated now, though in truth we've been out the running for much longer. Looking forward to next season though. We got a good group of young players up in Colorado and if we can strengthen our pitching game a little bit I think we can make some noise next year.

Finally able to get back in the game. Just moved and internet has been spotty. Pretty solid season for my Angels considering how bad the roster was. I think I'll be able to get closer to contention next season with a couple of key free agent signings. Cutting a lot of salary in the offseason so I should have plenty to play with.
