Annie (or Ante) up... Best deal for a Rookie???

Postby demoflauchy » Thu Aug 14, 2003 8:37 pm

Ok...What's the best deal you've made this year to:
1. Deal a Rookie (I traded Willis and Anderson for Mussina and Sheff)
2. Trade for a Rookie

C'mon, let's see who's got the best deal...

"Annie up" is a poker term meaning your initial bet....by using it the way demo did, he meant give your offering as to what your best deal of the year was...In other words, what was your best bet of the year....
For example...I gave Driefort and Astacio for Verno Wells before the season started.... ;-D

Actually either way is correct...the term started out as "Ante" in the older days...and in slang terms it come up as "Annie"...but both are right...

in tournament...which I have played...ante, or antes as pkarr mentioned, is the term...but I have heard annie used many times as slang in smaller plays...alot has to do with region..as this how I am sure demo ment it....

For the record, I play a ton of poker too, and I've never heard the expression "Annie up," sounds ridiculous. In any case, when you play hold 'em you don't have to use antes... blind bets are much better. Anyhow, sorry, off topic.

In any case, best deals:

I traded Dontrelle and Izzy for Kevin Brown and Esteban Loaiza. I think that was a pretty good one.

I also traded Dontrelle for Eric Chavez a couple of weeks ago, against the recommendation of people on this board, but I went with my gut and so far it's working out.

Chavez for me: 12 R, 4 HR, 16 RBI, .338 avg. and Dontrelle's had a couple of rough outings (I should say a couple of rough 3rd innings).

I still think I won the deal, but who knows...
