TAMPA BAY STARS Traded Bryan James to HELENA BARKING MOONBATS for Jacob Kwon and Derrin Price.
Helena picks up future Bullpen help and Tampa Bay nets another big time slugger. At the time i wrote this he has hit 3 homers and is batting .389 in 4 games. But with this being the last year of Mr.James's contract. He will look for a big raise next year. Will Tampa have enough green to resign him? Could be a blue chip Free agent next year.

NEW ORLEANS HIP WADERS Traded Walt Barfield to TACOMA TOYOTAS for Benjamin Hunter .
New Orleans picks up a two time All-Star Mid reliever and Tacoma continues to purge their ML talent for Prospects.Tacoma picked up a Decent SP with LH splits as his only weakness. Classic swap of younger for the older player .Watch out for Tacoma in a few seasons.


Napoleon Stokes
No suprise here. With a health rating at 40 ,I'm suprised this SP hasn't been injured more. Still this pitcher has been O.K. the last two years for Cincinatti.

Pablo Rosa
OUCH!!! In just his second season, Wild Thing Rosa goes down with a ligament tear.It's suprising, seeing how he has a 99 Health and Stamina rating. With his terrible control number he probably uncorked one in the stands and nailed a WIS employee. They returned the Favor!!

Jamey Richardson
Poor Jamey strained his Elbow. Listen Richardson with your below average record you need to suck it up and start earning your keep. Mdymond may drop your Wussy Ass!!

Heathcliff Bailes
DAMN IT!! Thanks I feel better now. I gave this kid a shot and I hoped he could make it in the ML's. He suprised me with his low WHIP and ERA ,but now what to do with him after this Injury???

Carlos Maduro
I don't even know why I included this injury. A Broken toe is not Major. Not a big deal for The MOOSE!!!

Nicky Romero
Big blow to this young prospect. I hope he can bounce back.Look for Lagzilla to bring him along slowly.

Atprasad Signed this 20 year old catcher from the Dominican Republic for a 8.5 mil signing bonus. This kid will smash the ball but his low glove and accuracy will probably make him a great DH.With his GREAT health and stamina ratings he should reach his projections.Just what Jackson needs another BIG BAT!!!

Rugby signed this good looking 18 year old out of the Dominican Republic for a 10.1 Mil signing bonus.This kid has great Control and velocity with two pitches in the mid eighties. Even though his splits are a little low He could be a solid ML starter. What concerns me is his average health rating but as long as rugby keeps his pitch count down there should be no problem. What is interesting is his defensive ratings.Might see him in LF sometimes, Kind of cool!! That will make him a GG Pitcher no doubt.

Bkevin signed this 18 year old LF from the Phillipines for a 1.1 mil signing bonus.This kid has numbers like so many 1b in this league .But for 1.1 the price is right.Low power numbers will hamper his promotion to the Bigs!!

Yet another Dominican has signed.Lagzilla signed this 19 year old SS with a 14.1 Mil Signing bonus.As i look at his defensive projections this kid will be better suited at 3B or RF.But he will be a ML player with his hitting skills.Low power rating will keep him from hitting a lot of Taters.But he will hit around .300 with a lot of doubles. Nice pick-up Lagzilla
