    No cap space, no scouting for Albany. Two or three more seasons of losing in the playoffs, then it'll be rebuild time, lol.

    Boy do I know THAT feeling lol. I took a stupid risk this last season and broke my streak of 30-whatever seasons of winning baseball. I think I could have gone a lot longer but I traded away the best 2B in the league for some young talent. On a related note, we (Washington) just made a swap with Oakland to bring in some MUCH needed young pitching. I swapped picks as well, so #23 is now available along with a ton of other position players.

    Honestly I think you won that trade. Hanson is a great player no doubt, especially on defense, but I'm only going to end up getting a couple of years of his peak before he starts to significantly decline. Meanwhile Gentry is going to be a great hitter in the middle of your lineup for many years. I haven't looked at who you got with the #17 but even without the pick I feel like you might come out on top of this deal.

    I mainly did it because I was tired of winning 90+ games and not making the playoffs. It worked out (barely)... but this team is aging and it's only a matter of time before we run out of ammunition. Tried for Gosha in free agency but the Mets made a better offer. Our starting pitching is very inconsistent and our bullpen was absolutely awful last year. I hate rebuilding especially in a 4/day league because it takes so long for the team to be good again... so we'll see how it goes. If I had to guess, I'll probably fight to win 85 games this year and finish in 3rd place 10 games back.

    I ended up with Jeff Mason at #17 in what was a pretty shallow draft. He should be decent, maybe back end rotation or relief. Ghentry should hit for a really high average, but I've got a lot of position guys that are just as good or better, which is why I'm looking for some trade partners. Had the pick been in a deeper draft I'd agree with you on getting the better of that deal, but I think it's pretty even. Hanson helps the whole pitching staff and hits well above average to boot. A sure fire player to make a playoff push, which I missed out on...
