I got offered Konerko/Bobby Crosby/Harden for Pujols/Lopez/Anibal Sanchez.

Garbage offer.

I countered with this offer and a note saying, "One bad offer deserves another":
Norton
Ozuna
Maroth
Donnelly

for
A-rod
Konerko
Peavy
Harden

He accepted it. He's the commish, so no doubt he'll veto it.

Here's an update. Through June 5th, here are the standings:


1. FBC-UnderpantsGnomes 174
2. RC - RotoChamp2 145.5
3. RK - SethBeno 141.5
4. RK - Keg Rollers 125.5
5. RC - RotoChamp1 124
6. RK - RotoKing 123
6. RGM Cianfroccos 123
8. RC- Machopr 115.5
9. RK - DAtaris17 114.5
10. RC-releasepoint 111
11. FPM - kory_wiu 104.5
12. FBC-Linkin Prospectz 96.5
13. FPM-Greco 93
14. FBC- the chosen one 88
15. FPM-Gdawg 80.5
15. RGM - Setterlund 80.5
17. RGM whosthebosh 72
18. RGM FTW 69
19. FBC - Super Pedantic 67.5
20. Team Deleted 51

Team Deleted was a guy from FPM who got pissy that an early trade before the season was vetoed (I don't even think he was involved in the trade). Anyway, I don't have a lot of time this morning - on my way to work in a minute. But obviously I've been off to a good start. Right now my C (Piazza, not that he's done much), and 3B (Chipper - off to a good start and then injured just as I expected) are on the DL, with Jason Philips/Brad Ausmus filling in at C and Alex Cora (blech!) at 3B. Was hoping to have Cora help out my platoon of Khalil Greene (away only) and Alex Gonzalez (home only) at SS, but the way it's played out, all three of these guys are starting full time for the moment. On the whole, though, my team is doing nicely. My SP has really come through, and the hitting has been decent.

Anyone else want to update on their teams?

Not much to say for my poor team. :P

I spent my #1 priority on Hughes which stings b/c I have solid pitching, but absolutely no hitting. The Brett Myers move to the bullpen hurt too. I've never played in a league this big before, and I'm certainly learning that you need to draft as many starting hitters as you can. I thought for sure I would be able to move one of my top pitchers (Lackey, Je.Weaver, B.Myers) for hitting, but almost everybody has more pitching than hitting. Live and learn I guess, but the season isn't over yet. :-°

I'm dead last in SB's, which is why I traded Pujols/Mussina for Crawford/K-rod. I'm happy with that deal even though Pujols is heating up. Once Crawford starts stealing bases again, I'll jump up at least 14-15 just from him alone.

Nice work Eugene. ;-D

Looks like the Cafe performed better than last season. Didn't we finish in last, last year?

Great job ES, I know it's frustrating to hold down the top spot all year and come up short at the end, but 2nd is sill a great finish for such a deep league. I'd never played in a league close to this size before so I didn't know what to expect, but I'm disappointed in my performance.

Crawford going out hurt my SB performance. I could have gotten about 5 more points if Crawford would have kept going. Oh well. Hopefully I'll be invited to be in this thing again next year.

P.S. Don't draft Eric Chavez
