The LOUISVILLE RED TAILS traded Jesse Manship to the FARGO PRAIRIE DOGS for William Wieters and 1,500,000
Aaron sent out this ad on the chat. "William Wieters available for cheap! Just make an offer."
Jmuhtoff answered his ad and sent a DITR relief pitcher that probably will never see the bigs. Aaron gets out of 1.4 million this year and 5.8 next year. Wieters was cheap.
The FARGO PRAIRIE DOGS traded Glenn Conigliaro and Piper Forster to the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS for Javy Torcato and 5,000,000
This is why Aaron was freeing up some salary with the above trade. He took on Torcato and his 14 million dollar a year contract and needed to free up some cash. Torcato is a stud pitcher and the P-Dogs will be marking their territory in the post -season with this acquisition. Wylie gets 2 very nice prospects and some cap space. Fargo is going for it , while Austin maybe giving up.
The PHILADELPHIA CHEESE STEAKS traded Al Zerbe to the NEW YORK LIFE MODEL DECOYS for Pat Quinlan
Gbuck posted this ad on the Chat. "I need to trim some salary....need to free up about 2 million... my "very conservative" draft pick..decided to almost double his demands...."
Fellow newcomer Fencer sent Quinlan and his 27k salary to Philly. Gbuck sent Zerbe and his prorated salary of 1,500,000 to New York. Net gain of 1.5 million in cap space for Gbuck. Still needs 500k.
The TEXAS LONE STARS traded Charlie McCartney , Ozzie Tazawa and Harry McEnroe to the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS for Damaso Gardel and 3,000,000
Wylie posted this chat message way back on 9/4. "still lookiong to trade Javy Torcato , Howard Ruffin and Damaso Gardel for prospects"
It took awhile to iron out this trade but finally Texas came up with 2 good pitching prospects and a young M L hitter. Wylie pulled the trigger and sent Gardel to Wish's team with this years salary paid. Wish will be on the hook for next years money and Gardel is worth it. He hits 50+ home runs every year and he's only 27.
The LOUISVILLE RED TAILS traded Jose Gutierrez to the PHILADELPHIA CHEESE STEAKS for Luis Vizcaino and 1,000,000
Looks like Jmuhtoff will chip in and get Gbuck the money he needs to sign his draft pick. He sent a good defensive utility player with a M L minimum salary. Gbuck sent his Utility player and ate 1 million of his 2 million salary. Net gain for Gbuck 1 million. He made It!!
The Madison Muskellunges traded Robin McDonaldand Benji Penny to the PHILADELPHIA CHEESE STEAKS for Jamie Miyakazi and 2,000,000
Gbuck signed Miyakazi to a 2 year/6.3 per year salary in the off-season. He shipped him to Madison with most of his salary paid for 2 prospects. Daddio gets a GG CF'er for the stretch run that can hit and steal some bases. And Gbuck sheds more salary for next year.
The NEW YORK LIFE MODEL DECOYS traded Wilson Bonham to the PHILADELPHIA CHEESE STEAKS for Jamie Yang
This trade only nets The Cheese Steaks a few penny's (700k). But them penny's will add up.
M L INJURIES
When "Uncle" Ben Farley went down for the season with elbow surgery. Aaron found himself with a open spot on his 25 man roster and pulled off a big trade for Javy Torcato. That should take the sting out of this injury.
Matt "First" Person was having a bad year. Matt knows Matt can only do so much for a struggling Austin team. Matt will keep Matt's head down for 2 weeks because Matt has a stiff groin. Matt needs a couple hookers to relieve Matt's stiffness.
Maybe it's my lousy scouting, but this kid looks good.
A strong throwing arm is nice.
