    I like baylor a lot, but I am so overloaded with pitching I cant do it.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    No thanks, having the 33rd best hitter in the league making the second highest salary in the league is kind of preventing me from investing in slow developing players right now.

    jpax - I've got two offers in game to you, you can take either or both doesn't have to be one or the other.

    Emmert - I offered pick 3 and 25 and the guy I took #7 two years ago.
    Whitfield - same offer stands, I don't have interest involving pick 3 unless Emmert is in the deal

    Thanks for the talks, sorry for the delay

    Tyvm, tander. Both offers appreciated and seem light to my 4/10 scout. Rightly or wrongly, Whitfield was 4th and Emmert was 1st. We can keep dealing post 4/1 if you choose, yet I need to get under the cap and take a nap. My apologies.
