It's plain and simple; play the role of a team's GM and decide whether or not you're a buyer or seller and make your moves accordingly. I'm not sure how I'll judge who's the "winner" but we'll figure that out. SIGN UP!

Im wondering if I should put Crawford on the block, because he will be a FA after this season and I could probably get some good chips from a playoff team. I know I am in the hunt though, and he is my 2nd favorite player, so this is a tough decision.

Rays- All prospects are up for trade, but I would want in return a star player if your wanting more then one, even if its a one year deal player (Looking at your Prince Fielder) Basically I am trying a one year run at the WS because Carls gonna be gone more then likely.

Dodgers- On the block: Furcal, Belliard, Weaver, Padilla, and maybe Either if I get quality prospects in return.

I'll be the Mets and Cubs.

Nothing in ARI appeals to me that would make SF good enough to go to WS, Haren is gone so it is whatever

I'm GMing the Twins, and this is just a waste of time because you know zero about baseball and are making this super unrealistic. The Giants just traded Bengie Molina to Texas to free up Posey and then you trade him? Why? To a division rival no less? Sanchez has been very good this year, too.

Why are the Dodgers trading Ethier, anyways? Great return for Posey, I guess. It just makes zero sense to me and I'm not the only one that thinks this.

Why are the Dodgers trading Ethier, anyways? Great return for Posey, I guess. It just makes zero sense to me and I'm not the only one that thinks this.

He has a two year contract and will expect big bucks, so instead of waiting for next years trade deadling I got a very very good deal for him now. We have a young team for the most part, so getting a future all star in posey, a #2 type guy in wheeler and 3 in sanchez, and a serviceable OF in Kieschnick for a OF wanting a big payday next year and a okay catcher. Now if I find another Playoff team to take Manny and Furcal I will have developed a very good team with alot of potential and locked up for the next couple years

thenewfeature06
07-14-2010, 08:42 PM
Eithier is 28 batting 300+ and like I said earliar this team contending and they get a big bat and some relief besides Brian Wilson then they are NL Champs possibly.. Good mix of vets in there and Russell Martin is an alright return he is 27 I believe certainly isn't Posey but whatever.. Sanchez was pretty good but the starting 4; Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, and Zito. Not a let down to me I don't mind trading prospects if the team is contending.

Yeah so not a fan of you btw haha but uhhh I didn't understand the game at first, yes the Orioles are terrible, I live here. I thought we were thinking next year and I just wanted to trade a bunch of prospects to get hitters and pitchers for 2011. Now my roster looks like poop, though I am still trying to get some back in return now knowing the point of the game...

Thanks for the participation though.

07-17-2010, 12:08 PM
As an Orioles fan, I can attest to the futile state of my franchise. However, how can the concept of the game be less obvious? How could you even think you were playing for 2011 with the 2010 Trade Deadline fast approaching in two weeks. Hence the name, The Trade Deadline Game!

Secondly, I question your strategy. With the Orioles currently being the laughing stock of the league and playing in the best division in the sport, why would you even consider buying? Hey, let's trade our current best starter and future ace of the pitching staff for an overrated 2B. Why not trade our future 3B and another future starter for current, unnecessary help in the rotation? I mean, seriously.
