I'm confused. What's this on my profile?

Big deal.  I got 5 of 'em.    Plus you beat this guy:

Following player was released according to league transactions but he's showing up on waivers instead of as FA.  Any reason for this?

He's under contract.    WW first then FA.   You can claim him and pay the pro-rated portion of 327k.   Releasing players making 6.5m is dumb.

Should I apologize for making a whole bunch of people in Mantle give up HBD?

I'm looking at signing a pitching prospect who projects the following defensive numbers. They're high enough to be a legit RFer. So how many plus plays per 300IP do you think?

40 61 76 64

People should be flocking to Mantle.   jtpops in a WS and you winning a WS in back to back seasons = SIGN ME UP!!!

I'm assuming 40 starts if you're thinking 300 IP so I'd guess around 18-20 on the high end.

If you had two similar-looking pitchers that threw the same hand on your draft-board, one 20 Y/O, the other 22 Y/O, $16 mill in College Scouting, and the 22 Y/O PROJECTED to be categorically better from stamina to velocity and projected very close in pitches, but the 20 Y/O was CURRENTLY better in Control, Splits, GB/FB and pitches overall (slightly worse in P1, much better in P2-P4, well behind in Velocity) who do you put higher on your draft board?

Don't want to post actual projections or anything to protect the innocent...

The 20 y/o who is currently better with the disclaimer that I wouldn't be surprised if they seems pretty similar still in 4 seasons.

Do you think the NCAA went soft on Johnny Manziel with his 30 minute suspension?  Should they have also denied him a second piece of cake for dessert after his dinner last night?

I don't think they had any tangible proof that he took money.   So they found something else and suspended him for that.    However, unlike MLB, the NCAA doesn't want to damage their product at a crucial time of the year so they found a way, with TAMU, to slap him on the wrist in the most meaningless, and harmless, way possible.   They should make him drink Keystone Light at the next Texas frat party he attends.

first season and starting to see some IFA appear in my mailbox.  Question:  I've been mostly looking at projected ratings as a ceiling that few if any players will reach. Is that accurate or will some players exceed projected ratings?  IFA wants 300K and his projected ratings (if he were to hit them) profile to a decent long reliever of MAYBE a passable starter (I think).  I'm not planning to attempt to sign, but feedback would be appreciated.

300k IFA aren't likely to be worth signing.   The IFA market is a big money market.   If a guy asks for 4m, he's going to be good.   If he asks for 1m, he might get to sit on a BL bench.   If he asks for 300k, he might be a D-spec or a power hitter with a bunch of flaws or a complete turd.    It's a flaw in the game.

Since according to usfcrybaby you're Hitler, did you do anything special yesterday to commemorate the 74th anniversary of your invasion of Poland to start WW2?

I invaded a beer cooler and yelled at a dude named Blutarski.
