He lost what 3 family members in the span of 1 month? That's more than some people may go through in a few years. Chris-105 needs to read it.

i lost my great-grandfather a few years ago then lost my dad the following year but to lose 3 family members in the span of a month would be too much. I have a lot of respect for Robinson and what he has done since then.

    Today at 06:07:38 PM
  • atombomb3776: Red you settle for 5M for 2016/17 I will make the deal
    Today at 06:08:27 PM
  • redbeard82: but you can still cover all of 2015?
    Today at 06:12:06 PM
  • JMAC: fitzy otc in.wild card baseball
    Today at 06:13:21 PM
  • atombomb3776: I am going to kick myself for saying this because I hate the fact of eating any contract but yes I will obsorb 2015's contract. Post it.and I will confirm.
    Today at 06:14:33 PM
  • redbeard82: alright. sounds good. i'll get that up and ready for you
    Today at 06:15:17 PM
  • patjossom: I can't beleive he's playing you to take these guys.
    Today at 06:17:36 PM
  • patjossom: This is a weird deal for a $$league but best of luck
    Today at 06:18:38 PM
  • redbeard82: posted atom
    Today at 06:30:19 PM
  • atombomb3776: Pat how am I getting played?
    Today at 06:33:49 PM
  • atombomb3776: If I were the one who built this team I wouldn't be selling. I am replenishimg my farm system.
    Today at 06:37:37 PM
  • patjossom: I would never say that it's just not my cup of tea. And you will not find a better fantasy player and from what I know better person then red beard.
    Today at 06:38:28 PM
  • redbeard82: i appreciate the praise pat. it's quite a bit of prospect value + hahn/jennings going back. i definitely added quite a bit to get the $ help into it.
    Today at 06:39:44 PM
  • chrisetc21: Wow RGIII slid
    Today at 06:40:07 PM
  • redbeard82: lol
    Today at 06:40:50 PM
  • atombomb3776: I know you can't bank on prospects rolling their talent to the majors but to get the prospects I did plus a 2nd baseman in Scoops and Jennings of course is no Cutch. But Stephenson, Peterson and Hahn. Not bad on paper. Red presented me with the best deal on paper. I didn't want to eat any contract but It will help me in the long run. I wasn't big on Kinsler anyways so to move him didnt really bother me
    Today at 06:44:34 PM
  • atombomb3776: Time will tell. 2018
    Today at 06:44:47 PM
  • atombomb3776: I meant 2017 will be either a great year or a real bad year for me
    Today at 06:45:11 PM
  • patjossom: Well I'm glad you're in it for the long haul. It just makes this league better. Good luck
    Today at 06:46:38 PM
  • chrisetc21: not sold on Hahn
    Today at 06:48:22 PM
  • chrisetc21: San Diego makes a lot of average pitchers look great
    Today at 06:48:48 PM
  • redbeard82: he's going to oakland though
    Today at 06:49:36 PM
  • redbeard82: same thing
    Today at 06:49:41 PM
  • redbeard82: but i like hahn's talent a lot...question is if his arm can handle a consistent 180 - 200 IP
    Today at 06:50:04 PM
  • chrisetc21: yeah, same kind of park
    Today at 06:50:15 PM
  • chrisetc21: i'll be surprised if he does it again next year
    Today at 06:50:45 PM
  • Scalious: Agreed Red
    Today at 06:52:05 PM
  • chrisetc21: curious how all those hitters will do in San Diego
    Today at 06:52:55 PM
  • chrisetc21: Kemp, Myers, Upton
    Today at 06:53:06 PM
  • chrisetc21: Will any of them break 20 homers? haha
    Today at 06:53:23 PM
  • redbeard82: they all have the power to hit it out of the park...those poor pitchers won't get a fly ball caught all year though lol
    Today at 06:54:18 PM
  • atombomb3776: Hahn still in San Diego?
    Today at 06:54:21 PM
  • Scalious: I think Upton will be fine..Myers questions is all about his wrist. Healthy wrist, he'll be fine. Kemp is one I worry about..
    Today at 06:54:30 PM
  • atombomb3776: Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Myers turns out to be a dud of a former prospect
    Today at 06:55:16 PM
  • redbeard82: whole lot of Ks up and down that lineup
    Today at 06:55:59 PM
  • redbeard82: Hahn is in Oakland. He was the key chip in the Norris deal.
    Today at 06:58:31 PM
  • atombomb3776: I think if Cashner can stay healthy. That rotation wont be bad at all
    Today at 06:58:47 PM
  • redbeard82: good low risk gamble on Josh Johnson they got
    Today at 06:59:43 PM
  • redbeard82: much better than the one the Dodgers got on Brett Anderson
    Today at 06:59:51 PM
  • redbeard82: EGDL Bids Done...a few more interesting names out there this week
    Today at 07:47:06 PM
  • atombomb3776: Looking for SP'g in BTN
    Today at 08:12:29 PM
