Houston/Cincinnati Trade
« on: November 25, 2012, 07:39:39 PM »
:HOU: gives:
SP - Alexander Torres
RP - Rafael Soriano $11.7m (2013)
$6M in 2012 Cap (attached to Soriano)

:CIN: gives:
SP - Taylor Guerreri
CI - Seth Mejias-Brean



:HOU: accepts. 
We pick up a pitcher who we think might have ace potential (or high-end #2).  We are thrilled to cut over $5M in 2012 cap space, as well.  Torres and Soriano are both nice players, but we couldn't pass on Taylor's arm.

:CIN: agree.

Taking aim at competing in 2013, Guerreri and Mejias-Brean do little to nothing to contributing.  Tampa is notoriously slow bringing up young pitching, meaning Guerreri could be more like 3 or 4 years from real contributions.

In return for dealing two very talented specs, I get a near ready SP/RP in Torres who, if he can limit his BB/9 could be a very successful pitcher.  Having a strong K/9 and GB%, I am hopeful his stature does not keep him from staying a starter.  Also acquired, is a closer looking for a home.  Even as setup man, Soriano would have value due to high Ks total.  And the kicker is the possibility that Soriano ends 2012 as a Draft Pick Compensation worthy RP.  The $6m towards his remaining contract makes the price tag on Soriano stomachable.

Thanks to :HOU: for working to find agreeable terms.

  • indiansnation: the sharks are ready to bid tonight
    Today at 01:30:23 AM
  • indiansnation: yep been up for 17hrs know and drinking my monsters watch fnhl teams sharks are out ready to spend some money

    Today at 03:28:55 AM
  • indiansnation: lol i like u worm
    Today at 08:01:08 AM
  • Daddy: You like the worm Brian? Explains a lot my friend.
    Today at 02:20:42 PM
  • indiansnation: daddy i like to stomp on worms so my sharks will stomp vegas down
    Today at 02:38:45 PM
  • indiansnation: crap ugot me good daddy lol
    Today at 02:39:33 PM
  • Daddy: I just hope you are counting your money right. Sharks got some major bids out there.
    Today at 02:47:35 PM
  • Daddy: Lots of holes to fill, although you are getting 4 guys from Vegas for cheap.
    Today at 02:48:17 PM
  • Daddy: You've always been your own GM and you know what you want so I'm sure you're on top of it.
    Today at 02:49:37 PM
  • Daddy: Just like the worm :P
    Today at 02:50:06 PM
  • Daddy: I always forget about the 10% overage in the off-season. That's a trap imo, FNHL punishes the bejesus out of those who exceed the cap.
    Today at 02:53:14 PM
  • indiansnation: im watching daddy
    Today at 03:06:26 PM
  • indiansnation: jojo pm
    Today at 03:06:38 PM
  • Rob: How is it that anyone can even exceed the cap in the first place?
    Today at 03:07:28 PM
  • indiansnation: i have 2 teams daddy dont forget
    Today at 03:07:32 PM
  • Rob: Just make any bids that put them over the cap invalid
    Today at 03:07:50 PM
  • Rob: and, quite frankly, if you have to punish someone for a rule violation in a league like that, generally you don't really want them in your league in the first place
    Today at 03:12:16 PM
  • dazfoster: Due to league follows NHL rules so extending players can put u above the cap, then its time for wheeling and dealing to get below the cap, which Brian is a master of starting trades
    Today at 03:12:29 PM
  • Rob: And if they need to be punished like that, they are going to be gone soon anyway, and the only one you're hurting is the new owner who lost a draft pick!
    Today at 03:12:41 PM
  • Rob: Ah, ok.
    Today at 03:13:17 PM
  • Rob: I still see "punishments" as pretty dumb
    Today at 03:13:26 PM
  • Rob: i just kick people out of my league - that's the punishment
    Today at 03:13:39 PM
  • Rob: it's better for everyone
    Today at 03:14:08 PM
  • indiansnation: cant wait for dnhl fa to start
    Today at 03:19:49 PM
  • dazfoster: The league has a very high number of trades, must have exceed 60 last year, as trying to improve our team
    Today at 03:20:23 PM
  • Rob: If I wasn't going camping from Thurs-Sun I would have started it already :P
    Today at 03:20:54 PM
  • Rob: I was thinking of starting it next week but I didn't want to mess with anyones labor day plans
    Today at 03:21:28 PM
  • Rob: well
    Today at 03:22:01 PM
  • Rob: I didn't want anyone to be at a disadvantage due to labor day plans
    Today at 03:22:14 PM
  • indiansnation: hey its good anyway gets all the owners eager to bid on players
    Today at 03:22:30 PM
  • Rob: is what i should say
    Today at 03:22:31 PM
  • Rob: Yea, the pickings are slim
    Today at 03:22:45 PM

    Today at 03:23:11 PM
  • Rob: Guentzel should get a massive contract
    Today at 03:23:11 PM
