Which Commissioner Would You Vote for President (or Prime Minister) of your country?  In the spirit of the United States' Presidential Election, we are holding a special two-day vote to pick the best of seemingly the worst!  Feel free to provide the entertaining reasons why you vote for a candidate.

Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there." óMike Schmidt, Hall of Fame third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies :PHI:

I actually would prefer any of the 4 to the 2 we have to choose from..and that's not saying much really.

If it has to be someone in sports, why not Billy Beane, he clearly knows how to get around having no money.

  • pandoval172: the thing is, we knew those trades were bad from the start
    May 27, 2016, 05:38:31 PM
  • pandoval172: just had no idea how bad, how fast
    May 27, 2016, 05:38:37 PM
  • Jonathan: Julio Urias is said to be teenage pitching prodigy. From years of watching Dodgers my advice is to hope for best, expect worst.
    May 27, 2016, 05:56:30 PM
  • Scalious: talking about a 19 year old with a small frame and never pitched more than 90 Pitches a game or much more than 80 innings in a year. Don't know how much you can expect from this and next year other than hope he doesn't get hurt
    May 27, 2016, 06:11:01 PM
  • Scalious: He'll be fun to watch in what limited innings we see him id think
    May 27, 2016, 06:11:37 PM
  • Jonathan: De Leon should be primed to have a significant role this year. He has only pitched 5 innings this year, so far.
    May 27, 2016, 06:51:10 PM
  • Jonathan: They built him up to almost 120 last year.

  • indiansnation: Hey scal and johnathan
    May 27, 2016, 06:53:44 PM
  • Jonathan: Send me Robles
    May 27, 2016, 07:03:52 PM
  • Scalious: Ha. I remember giving him a MLB contract
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:30 PM
  • Scalious: Mostly as a defensive move to keep him out of JPs hands
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:57 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, his value would be sky high if he had control and in minors. Not so much on a MLB deal.
    May 27, 2016, 07:10:46 PM
  • Jonathan: I tend to leave no money for latter on in year. I am in same boat this year. That is why I recently bid up a bunch of guys scoring points over waiting for j2 guys. I know teams have way too much cap for me to stand a chance lol
    May 27, 2016, 07:16:58 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan, you sold me damaged goods, Cain couldn't even last two innings
    May 27, 2016, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Coors field buddy. I told you that. Dont feel bad, I inherited Rockies to start with. No pitchers.
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:17 PM
  • Jonathan: I also inherited that farm way before it was good  :doh:
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:58 PM
  • Jonathan: Cain pulled his hammy.
    May 27, 2016, 11:33:51 PM

  • Jonathan: The best hope is that they get traded to better place. Like Pomeranz
    Yesterday at 01:08:12 AM
  • cjbeckel: Really the only kind of pitcher that can make it in Denver is a guy like Ubaldo Jimenez
    Yesterday at 01:12:25 AM
  • cjbeckel: He had great movement on his pitches, especially down in the strike zone.  It was really hard to hit homers on that guy

    Yesterday at 11:27:04 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan gave a similar response regarding Jimmie in the new Payment Tracker Thread.  Well let’s give him a chance.  I’m open to helping out if we need to have an owner for that team moving forward.  In the meantime, it looks like we have a full 30 team league then!

  • Jpsprague10: I would put the :COL: owner in the same boat. I've never looked for a replacement because CJ foots the bill. But he is/has always been a ghost.

  • Jpsprague10: I typically start monitering activity around this time so we have an idea of how much may need recruited for.

  • cjbeckel: Yes, Mike showed great promise and did a good job on cleaning up the roster.  I have been hopeful that he would return, but he has not logged in since Feb.  He put the ROX in a great position to move forward.  If he does not return this year I will consider him MIA, and do the work of rebuilding the ROX myself because :SEA: is far more marketable.
