Blockbuster Trade!

leave a comment »

The first blockbuster trade of the season was approved today as the Florida Marlins traded the #2 pick in the draft to San Diego for Kevin Youklis and San Diego’s 1st round pick.

With acquiring Youkilis, the Marlins have flexibility in the corner infield positions.  This allows them to draft with one of their 3 picks either a top of the line 3rd baseman or 1st baseman for 3 years.

San Diego on the other hand moved up 9 spots in the 1st round and is more than likely going to come away with either Albert Pujols or Hanley Ramirez.

Look for Florida to package a few picks together to acquire another 1st  or 2nd round pick.  She currently has SD 1st, Flo 2nd, Flo 3rd, MIN 3rd, FL 4th, FL 5th and now only 3 selections to make.

Commissioner’s decision regarding the upcoming Draft

leave a comment »

The Commissioner of SABLE Baseball, after being in contact with the former GM of the Toronto Blue Jays who belived he had 1 1st, 2 2nds, 2 3rds, 2 4ths, & 3 5ths, has decided that Philadelphia is in ownership of the following draft picks for this years draft as of 2/26.

PHI – 1ST
PHI – 2ND
BOS – 3RD
SD – 3RD
PHI – 4TH
BOS – 4TH
NYY – 5TH
PHI -5TH
STL – 5TH

He was beleived he was in possession of two 2nd round picks but is in no rush to  get the information for us & the commissioner isn’t going to wait around for an answer. 

Rather than  continue to speculate where that 2nd Round pick could be, since all paperwork has been thrown away, the commissioner is assigning the unclaimed Boston 4th round pick to Philly and now that makes all picks accounted for.

Trade talks heating up!

with 2 comments

With only 17 days to go until the draft many teams have been testing the trade market. 

Tampa Bay is looking to move up in the draft.   Boston is looking to trade his 2nd Round pick.   Boston is also interested in Minnesota’s Jason Bay which has Minnesota thinking a bit.  San Diego is willing to package K. Youkilis and a 1st to move into the top 5.  Minnesota has been talking to to New York about the #6 pick.  Florida and Minnesota have agreed in principle to a deal switching picks in the 3rd round.  San Diego and Minnesota are in talks and may have a blockbuster trade on the horizon.

Not to mention Tampa Bay and Philadelphia submieed a trade earlier this week.  It was denied, but with a few tweaks it can be resubmitted and approved.

Needless to say, this is turning out to be an interesting hot stove league.

A league member’s idea for the AllStar game

with one comment

By now you have seen all those commericals for Windows 7 on tv.  Well the league is ready to listen to you to find a format for the SABLE AllStar game.  A league member has suggested this format for the All Star game this year and upcoming years as we continue to have 3 divisions.

The league member proposes the following:

We have 11 teams in SABLE; 6 of the teams are National League teams (Marlins, Mets, Giants, Phillies, Cardinals, Padres, & Giants) and 5 of them are American League teams (Red Sox, Twins, A’s, Yankees, & Rays).

So why don’t we play a true AllStar Game American League vs. National League?  Also in order to keep the spirit of the AllStar Game how about if we give the winning league of our AllStar Game home field advantage in the SABLE World Series.  If both World Series Teams are from the same league, then home field advantage would be determined by highest playoff seed.

So thats the suggestion.  I as the commissioner like it.  I think it is quite clever.  At first I didn’t like the idea for home field advantage to the winner, but thinking more about it I seem to think it would be fun to do.

I have put up a poll and ask the league members to vote if they would like to have this format for the AllStar Game.
