Good to see I'm keeping up w/ the FA bidding and bid on a player that was already signed.  I'm sure my wasted bid and great showing in FA is making the rest of the AL East Happy!!

Well the Royals were starting to get a complex until today's results were sent out.

We got all four of our first four bids uncontested.  Not sure if that due to good selection (players we could afford, and there still being bigger fish for the behemoths to go for), or that we've just wasted a whole lot of money.

Bid #5 came in under that of the Reds for the services of Kevin Brown for 1 year.  The Royals in a bidding war simply sounds proposterous, guess we'll see what happens (if it happens).

Well, Wes Helms should put up similar numbers as Eduardo Perez vs lefties, little less power on the splits but 7 years younger and can play solid 3rd.  There's a lot of guys out there that can hit lefties hard.  But the sim doesn't seem to love anyone more than Eduardo Perez!  (just kind of rambling here to get some chatter)

I love Eduardo Perez too.....

so far, other than the failure to get Suppan for the money I wanted and probably paying a tad too much for Javy Lopez, I have liked the two players I've gotten so far Kenny Rogers signed a real life contract of 2 year for 8 mil per this offseason, getting him for 3mil seems like a bargain unless the sim ages him faster than he's shown.
