The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived.
Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction.
This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed.
(Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which...
Last year's league:
New York Knights - RETURNING (Commissioner)
Pinch Hitters - RETURNING
Ponzi Schemers - RETURNING
Ruthianblast - RETURNING
Last year was tough for me; this year is shaping up for more of the same.
Commitments have been piling back up lately and I will not have time to run this league again.
I would like to turn the reigns over to someone, if there are any takers.
(For the record, I was given the Commissioner title one year the day before the season started, so this is a little more notice. :))
Should we get the ball rolling?
Nice job rookie. Thought we were headed for a photo finish between you and Sycamore Style, but you managed to separate yourself over the past couple weeks.
Now for the fun part - keepers!
Bragging for bragging's sake.
Love the prediction that my pitching would be terrible, Rob!
I mistakenly clicked Aaron Hill when picking in the draft, and much to my chagrin ended up getting him at $1. I was annoyed.
I'm in the trading mood.
Lance Berkman and Grady Sizemore are on the table.
Let me know if you've got interest...
The Romanian Yankees made a final push in the hope of winning this year's league, by trading their best minors prospect, SS Gordon Beckham, to Ruthianblast, in exchange for two star players in their final contract year, RP Francisco Rodriguez and 2B Brandon Phillips.
Webb to the DL, please.:(
I see Sportsline has added Stephen Strasburg to their system.
He is INELIGIBLE to be picked up in our league. Please do not add him to your roster, I will only drop him once I see the roster move.
Couldn't find the appropriate thread to ask this question in, so I figured I'd just start a new thread.
Commish: What the hell can I do about Manny? :lol:
Do I have to drop him or is there a special list on which he gets placed? Seems unfair for me to have to drop him and then someone else gets to pick him up, or give him a long-term contract, but the lack of bench spots puts me in this tough position. What are the rules regarding this?
While The Blast is sad to see Halladay go; we are very excited to add Beltran into the OF mix. Jones is off to a good start. Mauer was a big part of the Blast's modified lineup; but after about a week of trying to get Beltran I was felt this was a solid deal.
Ponzi Schemers send Justin Upton and Troy Tulowitzki
Sycamore Style sends Justin Verlander and Shin-Soo Choo
The mL draft will begin FRIDAY, April 10th, 8am Eastern Time.
Teams will have 24 hours to make their pick; picks not made on time will be forfeited until the end of the draft.
Draft order TBA soon.
When it is your turn, please announce as:
NEW YORK KNIGHTS, Nick Zohn, P, New York Yankees
I trade Ludwick and Volstad to the Romanian Yankees for Webb and Nady.
I had solid hitting and wanted to take a small gamble on Webb.
The busiest day in Romanian Yankees franchise history ended with another blockbuster deal.
Romanian Yankees gets:
Sycamore Style gets:
Blast give up:
Romanians give up:
In this league, you cannot do add/drops until Opening Day -- otherwise known as "Free for All Day".
Waivers have been started, but any claims made prior to Opening Day -- which is Sunday April 5th -- will be reversed.
A day begins at 12:01am, by the clock in my living room (an atomic clock).
If there are any problems with your keepers, send a text message to:
You reserved Chase Headley last year.
Signed to a 2-year, $10 extention. If you don't keep him, you face a $2 penalty.
Let me know ASAP so I can process keepers...
With the auction on the 25th, keepers need to be in by next sunday, 3/22.
Any questions, let me know...

I am granting temporary commissioner powers to:
for the auction, since I may not be there. They will have power to pause/rewind the auction if necessary.
My March this year has been brutal. My apologies to all.
Right now it looks like the best date for me to hold the auction would be March 25th.
Can people make that date? 9pm?
Please pick new team names.
...that is, unless you like being called Expan 1 and Expan 2.
i need your keepers asap!!!!!
