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 (j.harv8@gmail.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.

Melky, you suck. I could use an OF before the deadline. I'll send some offers around, but please don't hesitate to get in contact with me as well.

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 ;-)
