Seriously, is there a way to send PM's to email because I can't figure that out? It would also be sweet if you could just send the forum threads to an RSS feed. Anyone know if that's possible? At first attemp, I can add ALL the threads to a feed but not a specific thread. I'm also almost always available on gchat (email@example.com).
I voted in the two polls. I voted to add a bench spot. Honestly, despite this being my only free league, I love it to death and really dont want or feel the need to change anything. The phrase, dont fix it if it aint broke comes to mind here. So I picked the lessest (is that a word) of the evils and added a vanilla bench spot.
I voted for adding a weekly limit because let's face it, streaming is for losers.
On a random note, with Machado's call up this week I took a glance back to see what I traded to get him. Turns out it was Jon Lester for Mat Latos/Manny Machado. I also just traded Jon Niese for Lester so really its Niese for Latos/Machado. Where is the "pat yourself on the back" emoticon?
Yeah, I reflected on the trade recently, but I've generally said it's worth sacrificing a bit of the future if it nets a championship, and last year it did, so I'm okay with it.

Yeah, I think you must be
Seriously, what's your issue with the deal?
No issues, just would much rather have the lee/kinsler/pick side of the trade...
To each their own, I suppose. I like Price as much as any SP in the game and he's over 7 years younger than Lee. Kinsler is clearly above Zobrist, but not by as much as people might think, and Zoby has multi-positional ability that helps my team setup. The 4th is a meh pick I have no problem dealing if someone demands a sweetener - beats giving a "proven" ''spec any day of the week
