I've never had a 5y guy tell me that but Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Ryan Buchanan signed for 2% more on the total.   Requested 2/5m and signed 2/5.1m.  I usually start at 5% but lowballed RB because signing him wasn't the most important thing going on.

so i raised my offer to him twice so far. he rejected the most recent one and said he was gonna test free agency. but his free agent bidding page doesn't say he's filing no matter what. i bumped up my offer once again. is there a chance he'll accept this offer? is there a chance the mutual option i offered last time was unacceptable and that's why he rejected?

My guy has a mutual option.   I'm pretty sure you just have to find the right number.

wtf does this guy need? he originally asked for $5.8 x5.  i've been upping my offer. the one that he just rejected was for $38.5k total (last year mutual option). since i think i only have one more shot i'm offering $8.5 x 5 with no option. if he doesn't accept this one, im thinking of sending in a ticket just for an explanation.

1.5x initial demand will always work.  Go to $8.7m x 5 with confidence.

And then redline this because it's not a question.

if dedelman is wrong in his response, do i get to beat on him?

It appears I'm late to the party but I was going to say that I've had to go 50% higher before.   9 per when 6 is requested. 

That is not a question.

You could but I'm pretty sure he's right.   Although I'd never use "always" because I haven't negotiated with every FA in HBD.

i accepted a trade involving me getting an arb eligible guy. he wasn't/isn't arbed yet. arb day is today. if the current owner signs the guy long term now, does the trade get nullified? or is it ok since it's arb?
8/12/2014 2:57 PM
Supposedly a status change like that will void the deal.  But I've seen them go thru. 
8/12/2014 3:13 PM
I've made that trade before, on both sides.  I usually ask the guy what he wants me to do as far as arbitration/extending him, and vice versa.  I don't think it would be nullified, it hasn't been for me.

Oh, a question.  Hmmm....What's your favorite Robin Williams movie?

Not a big fan.   He was funny at times but more than a 20 minute dose seemed to be too much.

Is there a way to clear my World Chat clipboard of a player? Seeing a guy's face in there constantly when not attempting to post his link to the World is starting to get on my nerves.

I'm not sure what you're asking.

I want that guy's face not where it is.
8/13/2014 4:11 PM
That's just a link button not a player's face.   It's there for everyone.    Same dude.
