THE WEEK IN WRIGLEYVILLE SEASON 24 #4
The ARIZONA COBRAS traded Larry Walker and 2,800,000 to the SCOTTSDALE SCHIZOIDS for Matt Black and Vicente Fuentes
Pretty much everyone knows that I'm in the market for good position players. With a good pitching staff , the only thing holding my team back is a run deficent offense. The Cobras are having a sinking ship sale and sent me a offer. Walker for a recently demoted pitcher and a young defensive catcher. It was a no-brainer to pick up a good contact and power switch hitter. And the Cobras got rid of a contract and picked up a good pitcher that never fit in on my team.
The MADISON MUSKELLUNGES traded Takashi Lui to the SCOTTSDALE SCHIZOIDS for Felipe Flores and Norm Ratliff
I got tired of Flippin Felipe Flores and his antics. He was a distraction in the clubhouse and his late night forays are infamous. So i sent out a chat ad that he was on his way out and Madison sent me ths best offer. Truth be told I would have traded him for a blowjob from a 5 dollar hooker, with braces. He offered a young 2B/CF'er that will be in AAA working on his glove work. I also had to throw in a young closer type in Ratliff , but I really wanted to move Flores.
The HELENA BARKING MOONBATS traded Miguel Rosario to the CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES for Ken Bell and 100k
Looks like Sordie needed some bullpen help and he found a good pitcher who was stuck in the Charlotte farm system. The kid deserves a shot and Helena will give him that. Charlotte picked up a young hitter with power that may play DH/1B.
The ARIZONA COBRAS traded Phillip Rhodes and 3,500,000 to the SALT LAKE CITY UTES for Wilbur Watson
This trade is injury driven.When Hoopcoach lost Tito Cannon for the season he was forced to shop for a replacement. And while Rhodes is not as good as Cannon Fodder, he can hold his own. Arizona on the other hand acquired Rhodes in a earlier trade and parlayed him into a nice pitching prospect. He also got rid of some salary and that is always a good thing for a team re-tooling for next year.
M L INJURIES
Hipolito "The Mad Hippo" Maduro will be out 2 weeks with a strained hammy. Ressda is Hippen Mad.
Gerardo "GM" Martinez is out 2 months with a bulging disk. Theres no way to bail out this GM.
Jmas will be without the services of Art "Naught Thow Good" Desmond for a couple weeks. The Stars may be thow fortunate for Art thow shall be reborn. Amen
Tito Cannon "Fodder" will miss the rest of the year with a herniated disk. This really Blows for Hoopcoach.........with braces.
That wailing you hear in the beehive state is the Moaning of Hoopcoach. Another player bites the dust for the rest of the year and that earlier blow job still hurts. This time it' s Felipe "Groan" Baez. He suffered a labrum tear and could miss the start of next year as well. Bob Dylan showed up and started playing a duet with Groan Baez....." The season my friend is Blowing in the Wind.The Utes season is Blowing in Wind"
Sordie nabbed a really nice pitching prospect with 11.2 million.
a good minor league defensive catcher.
A innings eater
4.8 million for this pitching prospect. Could use some help on his splits from the DITR Fairy.
2.8 million and a S/T invite for this good bullpen prospect.
A good minor league pitcher.
