My DDL team was drafted when I was still a fucking idiot, and I'm stuck with that. Plus, I finish top 5 every year in the BBDL. And, since I've taken over the PL and began accepting buy ins, I've won 75% of the total money over two seasons, including back to back titles.

    But yeah, enjoy jockeying for 8th place, you superior guy, you.
    Based on what I've seen, you probably would have run the LoD Padres into the ground worse than Nafro TBH.

    I know we are bantering but you went too far. Take it back.

    I've only gotten two tentative bites on Correa. A bit surprising.

    Please don't do this. Aledmys really isn't that good. I can't watch this happen.

    You're acting like I'm about to trade him for picks. You're aware I have no CF now, right? and my pitching sucks. I'm at 3 offers now, and I am pleasantly surprised that not a single one is trying to lowball me.

    I am curious about this league. Where can I get a look at the teams, if possible?

    I just think Aledmys Diaz' positional eligibility is a bad rationale for trading your franchise cornerstone. Godspeed.

    And if I get another, similarly skilled franchise cornerstone at a different position?

    What a development. The compensation package that was so speculative just grew in value by a lot.

    In the Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time the Great Deku dies in the intro and it's the most sad but then later in the game there is a scene where an awesome baby Great Deku tree has sprouted up in his roots. This is what this feels like to me right now.
    Or not...

    Ohtani may not decide to move to MLB until after the 2019 season when he can become a free agent due to changes in the new collective-bargaining agreement that restrict MLB teams' spending on international free agents under age 25, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.

    Analysis: Ohtani is arguably the top prospect in the world as he not only throws 102 mph and had a 1.86 ERA last season, but also hit 22 home runs with a 1.004 OPS as a DH for the Nippon Ham Fighters. Nippon said before the new CBA it had planned to post Ohtani after the 2017 season so he could move to MLB, but the changes cloud that outlook. If Ohtani were to move to MLB via the posting system, he'd be limited to about a $5 million or less annual contract under the new rules rather than the perhaps $20 million or more annual deal he'd get as a free agent. MLB and NPB negotiate their posting agreement each season, so it's possible some rules could change. If not, we may not see the 22-year old Ohtani decide to move to MLB until he turns 25.

    It feels to me like he has an agreement to get posted whenever he wants, in exchange for signing with the Ham Fighters originally. He'd still probably be better off getting posted, just having the initial contract only cover the years until he reaches arbitration. It's not as tasty an outcome for him, but he probably still makes more (or at least similar) by getting posted assuming he's as good as advertised.

    He'd absolutely make more. His MLB deal, while neutered, would be more than his JAPANESE! contract. And hit free agency hella young, and if good and healthy get like $300M.
