Rivero was very nearly selected by the Cubs at 2.2

 

brief consideration was apparently given to Iglesias because of the SP eligibility but "the Reds suck too much, i'd rather grab a closer on a first place team"  :dunno:

 

I considered Rivero, but I have a glut of relievers and needed help at starter.

I was torn between Sonny Gray and Cosart. Took into consideration that Gray could only help me every 5 days and Cosart could every day. Hoping if he gets traded it is to Colorado!!

I was close to grabbing Hamilton.  If I would have been able to trade for 2B (read put more time into trying) I would have taken him instead of Harrison.

Mookz did a great job of transforming his team.

 

Good job by all.  We didn't get anywhere near needing a clock.  Go pick up those players.  Second half begins tomorrow night.

I should have all the second basemen in the world, but Turner is out for who knows how much longer and Kipnis is on the shelf with a bad wheel. Once I get one of them back I will have a spare now that I have a third baseman other than Ramirez.

I have a bunch of second basemen I would like to flip for a reliever. Check out my roster if you are interested.

At some point I'm going to have a plethora of really good outfielders. Problem is I'm in love with all of them :D

But I could be persuaded to part with one for a difference maker. My biggest needs being SS and SP

This was a very long week and Mookz team made a huge comeback. I had a pretty big lead by the end of the "first week". And sure enough he made a comeback and I lost yet another week.

Congrats

the fock is going on.  Between my piss poor management not realizing sucre wasnt starting tonight and lomo was dinged up, then Hellickson gets scratched from his start and Robbie Ray gets injured after 1.2 innings... better not be serious or that trade was a waste.  Rays also blowing stupid games...

 

 

here comes the Deviled Rays free fall. 

 

 

 

OH, SWELL

 

Robbie Ray was forced to leave Friday's game against the Cardinals after taking a Luke Voit line drive off of his head.

Advice: Ray appeared to remain conscious during the ordeal. He was moved to a sitting position before being loaded onto a cart to be driven off the field. He was also able to wave to the crowd on his way out. He'll head for further evaluation. Expect an update on his status from the Diamondbacks later in the evening.

Sanchez blisters and DL again.  4th time this season. There has got to be a change with the baseballs.  This is stupid.

Sup pick Harrison is now hurt.  Tulo (shocker) hurt again.  Knew I needed that SS/2B combo guy.  Can't expect much from Goins but at least the little guy goes out and plays.

Price also out again like starting the season.

ugh

Beckham too.  Great and all for next year, but gives me fewer options this year.   <_<

 

Now I'd really be focked at SS/3B if I hadn't landed Sano.  Hopefully this hand thing doesn't last too much longer.   :doh:

Andrew Miller vs Jason Kipnis vs Danny Salazar in a battle to decide who can spend the least amount of time on the field between DL visits.

I'll be in great shape for the playoffs with Kipnis/Salazar/Miller and possibly Brantley out.

Arrgh Ted, picking up Brett Anderson the day he becomes eligible to me... damn you league leading Dodgers  :bench:

I've had no luck this year with SP really.  Just struggling to find guys worthy of a shot.

I checked the probable starters that day and there he was, had no clue he was with the Jays...

Jays already shutting down guys not going to help my playoff chances.  Donaldson a little hurt, Sanchez not coming back, Travis won't make it, Osuna starts blowing saves and then has a kid during the season, not much reason for Martin to rush...

Then Josh Harrison won't return from broken hand (sup pick).

My warm up against ted last week wasn't outstanding even with the Dodgers struggling themselves.  This should be fun.

Good luck to you, sir.  I actually had aspirations of catching you for the final playoff spot in the last two weeks.  I was 6 games out and went 13-3 in the next-to-last week, but you went 12-3.   <_<  Then in the final week you had to play the first place team and I got to play the last place team, but the O's laid a complete and total egg and I got destroyed.   <_<

 

Good luck to all, it's anyone's game.   :thumbsup:

You almost came back on the final day!  I was leading 12-5 coming into today.  I wound up only winning 8-6.  If your pitchers would have given up just a couple less runs or mine would have given up a couple more, that would have flipped ERA to you and we would've tied 7-7 with you advancing.

not sure if you noticed, it was tied. 7-7 and i guess the rockies/padres game was still going on.  At some point, without me realizing it, Jake mcGee came in and gave up a run without recording an out and that sent my ERA back over yours.
