giving away Vladimir Guerrero as a throw in ... that should be grounds for having your expert icon removed.







oh wait. ;-7

Pshaw. I was cutting cap. I've got the best, youngest, cheapest OF in the league now. If JT wasn't a forum Nazi I could look up exactly what the trade was, since I forget now. The only player I know I got from JT at some point is Carlos Zambrano, but I don't think that was part of the Vlad deal...

They're not deleted. They're in a hidden archive, and if you want to see them, I can give you temporary access to a temp account to let you rifle through our entire archive. RJ and I just do that to keep the boards clean for your heathens.

Trade, Aug 2nd 2009 wrote:Heroes Receive:
Jon Niese (1/1)
Yunel Escobar (1/1)
1 FF

Sluggers Receive:
Vladimir Guerrero (1/2)
Francisco Rodriguez (3/3)

CAPS:
Heroes 45 -> 42
Sluggers 54

Niese blew out his leg the next weekend, iirc. Also, KRod cost me a week with his implosions, Vlad really only had one good week, and Yunel was pretty bland. It was largely a nothing trade in the short run.

No.

Sentence fragment.


http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/affect-versus-effect.aspx

Affect
Affect with an a means "to influence," as in, "The arrows affected Ardvark," or "The rain affected Amy's hairdo." Affect can also mean, roughly, "to act in a way that you don't feel," as in, "She affected an air of superiority."

Effect
Effect with an e has a lot of subtle meanings as a noun, but to me the meaning "a result" seems to be at the core of all the definitions. For example, you can say, "The effect was eye-popping," or "The sound effects were amazing," or "The rain had no effect on Amy's hairdo."

Not at all! Just curious about what I have potentially won. Spending $6 on Vlad in TEX is a nice little risk imho (worst case scenario -- what, eat the $6 and sub someone in at UTIL?)....

Just curious, like I said, about what the man can do this year. :-D

Maybe -- @ DH less likely though, and I think he'll get some meaningful time (so, apparently, does Texas).


Anyway -- a reasonable line to pencil in for him would be....
