Anyone else seeing this guy hit the waiver wire? This is a ten team mixed.......I almost fell out of my chair this morning. I know he has had a slow start, but still.

I cannot believe that at all. As bad as he's been, he's still got good potential for the rest of the year, and he's still got a shot at 30 HRs and 100 RBIs. I mean I know he's not up to expectations, but WOW I can't believe he was just dropped. That's crazy.

What waiver priority do you have? Good god, the other manager must have been a crack baby. Who did he pick up?? :-?

Wow. You ain't getting Beltran my friend. And that other manager.... what a doofus. I suspect there was alcohol or mind-altering chemicals involved in that decision somehow. :-°

It's not too late to compose devious distractions! Make a post stating that you're discouraged at the off year Beltran is having, and it's a real pity about that injury of his. While people scramble to find the info, you might be able to snag him. It's a longshot... but anything goes when it comes to Beltran.

maybe you can add/drop like 6 times really fast and get the beltran transaction off the main screen before anybody else notices?

I don't think Dye should have been on WW either. You must have small rosters!
