I generally re-evalute players/teams every 40 games.    If I'm 28-12, I'd pull the trigger on that prospect I was holding back.   Of course, I lead the HBD community in missing the playoffs by 1-2 games.   So I'm pulling the trigger too early or too late.

Office debate, and I'm not sure both are available in the States, but here goes; Bailey's or Carolan's in coffee?

Both are available.  Never had Carolan's.   So Bailey's!!!!

While we are on office debates.  I was talking to someone the other day and in their conversation they said, "knock on wood".  But there was no wood to knock on.  Five minutes passed and then they knocked on wood.  I told them that there was a time limit(Not sure what it would be), but 5 minutes is way past the expiration point for knocking on wood.  Would you agree with me?

Jeez, I'd say it's about 15 seconds.   If you don't have wood, people get disinterested quickly.

That's what she said?

Of course.

Your thoughts on once again being bypassed in the voting for Pope?

I'm a bit disappointed but I think the next one is mine.   Ol' bastard just needs to croak soon so I can abuse my power to the best of my ability.

Best "Survivor" episode ever?

Meh.   Felt like "manufactured" anger.   There's a reason there's never been a fistfight.   And it's not because Probst is handing out shoulder massages.

BTW, I think it's "master of my own fate."   Kudos to Brandon for trying to quote an actual book but I'm pretty sure he was wrong.

What would happen if a player in first year arb is awarded 1mil+, then is optioned to AAA, and receives little playing time? Will they get a raise next season or go to arbitration at all? Will they continue to make 1mil+ indefinitly as long as you keep them on the 40man roster or is there a certain number of seasons (3 for instance) that you could do that?

My team just signed Brandon Myers. You have a scouting report on him?

What do you think of an IFA with a batting line of 15/93/36/51/89, projected to 18/100/42/60/100 with 20 spent in IFA. He's a 1B.
3/17/2013 4:25 PM
Somebody might need to get MikeT some coffee. The questions are starting to pile up. Anyway, I see a 22 year old IFA who already has an OVR of 83, projected to 91 with my 14M IFA scout budget. He is a decent second baseman, with a current batting line of 65/83/67/61/81, but only projected to 73/87/67/67/90. How much is he worth? I have the #5 draft pick this season, and the regular season is just starting. This is my first season in this world, so my draft scout budget is 14/14. Is he worth more than my #5 draft pick? Should I shoot my whole Prospect wad on him, and blow off the draft? I have my Rookie team basically already filled with scuds.
