  • Just noticed that there is a 8* rookie catcher on the FA list with 17 potential (shows you how much notice I take sometimes). Since the Braves have Bethancourt I'm pretty sure he is not as valuable to the Braves as he is to other teams. Equally the Padres have recently signed Jin-De Jhang from the Pirates and, in what might be purely a postseason based move, the released Cordero...

  • MLB1 - 35-19 week 6 With Nick Swisher on the FA list and an injury to Danny Lee, young third baseman Miguel Andujar got to see some game time. All was going well until G9 when a couple of errors in the third inning contributed towards 7 unearned runs in a thrashing by the White Sox. The Orioles opened a small gap with an 8-1 week, and they in turn saw the Indians pass them with a...

  • MLB21 You must be pleased with the CG shutout by Gallardo (a Brewer in his formative years) ? That is, what, 5 CG on the trot now, and looking very much the Ace.

There's also a handful of top batters, so perhaps the Mets will be able to make 2 or 3 top class signings. Good...

  • In honour of Dave and his Twins I have resurrected and updated the below. The last 6 seasons have seen a big improvement for Boston (although still below .500) and big drops for the Mariners, Yankees, Brewers and Athletics - with the latter two having just posted their best season for some while. I think the Mariners won a WS and then retired, or something like that. MLB8 Franchise...

I did realise Released players went on a waive list, hence why I said FA bids are processed first - more that it is the first action to be acted against the FA list. That is an interesting...
