    Good. I was concerned for TCA's mental health.

    Yeah I think it would maybe satisfy the requirements.

    A veto in our leagues needs to be a patently unreasonable trade that no sane owner would objectively do.

    But for the record, North would throw out deals as bad as that all the time. And he would add a cute little justification like: "This is a big boost to your youth pitching strategy"

    I don't think I'd even accept this if I was drunk. Atleast I hope I wouldn't.

    Plenty of guys have offered worse trades that that. Bad form to try to embarrass the new guy.

    Meh. Maaahface will be a good owner, just testing the waters. You don't know if you don't ask!

    Literally nothing I hate more in fantasy baseball than owners who try to justify their proposals like I'm unable to critically think on my own.

    In a league this big with so many moving pieces, sometimes it can help to explain where you're coming from. But you're right that more often than not it comes off as condescending.

    So I do it all the time, of course.

    I got offers just as bad for guys like Mookie Betts from North, so Maahfaace is continuing the Brewers' motto pretty well.

    Recent trade notes from North:

    [Conor] Gillaspie could get some playing time and batted ball analysis likes him. You're looking for 3B help.

    You have room and need for [Steven] Wright. Smoak could get plenty of PT. Feel free to counter.

    Feldman projects okay and is an Opening Day Starter™.

    God I miss him...

    "Opening Day Starter" is the stat I always go by when assessing talent

    "Conor Gillaspie could get some playing time and is basically a league-average hitter (below factoring in park). Saw you wanted infield help"

    Here's a pretty good proposal:
    Milwaukee receives: Mookie Betts, Vince Velasquez
    Toronto receives: Lucas Duda, Jeff Samardzija, Chase Utley, Arodys Vizcaino, Chris Gimenez

    The fucking nerve of that guy.

    2017 Draft Pick, Round 5 (Washington Nationals): Washington Nationals ---> Milwaukee Brewers
    Avila, Alex: Milwaukee Brewers ---> Washington Nationals
