Holy cow! This team had some serious scrubs on the major league roster mixed in with those solid vets.

So far I've had only 1 legitimate offer (for Hackett), and a few really sad offers for Merrit and Herrmann. I'll let you all guess who sent over those lowball offers...

I'm going to wait until tomorrow before I accept the deal for Hackett to give the other contenders (or pretenders) a chance to make an offer on him. Best offer gets him. He's OS34, but he's A overall, and has A+ control. That means he's going to give you 2 or 3 good years after declines start. Velocity declines much faster than control does (on average).

FYI, he just struck out 14 Turtles in an 8 inning effort and win.

Houston took most of my pitching in a mega deal, but we still have some good hitters available!

It was a good deal for both of us. You kept your 2 best prospects, and got 2 great starting pitchers, and another that should improve into a very good starting pitcher.
