Embrace the Suck
« on: June 09, 2019, 10:28:30 AM »
So,  I went all in, and it hasn't gone well. 17 games under is pretty insurmountable, so I've adopted a new mantra:

Embrace the Suck!

That said, the following players are on the block:

Mike Folteniwicz
Yan Gomes
Ken Giles
Mark Trumbo

In addition, I'm on pace to have a top 5 pick in next year's draft. I'm very willing to move this pick. I'm looking for prospects, and potentially MLB ready guys that are rotting away in your minor league systems.

DO NOT INQUIRE ON ALEX BREGMAN. THE ANSWER IS NO.

Sorry, had to get that out.

Alright, we're open for business. Come pick the bones.

 Also, I'm currently en route from Colorado to Oklahoma, so it may take a minute for me to review offers. Be patient. I don't plan on finalizing any deals before Tuesday at Noon, so everyone can haggle, and still beat the deadline to adjust your MPs.

With the swath of moves, I am currently looking at $51m in cap space next season, barring a ridiculous adjustment.  Not bad.
