Hurricanes looking for starting pitching and relief pitching. All picks are available for next year. If you are interested in any current roster players, let me know and we may be able to work something out.
With recent draft pick JD Davis filling DH role, Luke Voit is now available in trade market. Will trade for SP or Closer.
The Sluggers have the following players available: Melky Cabrera, Clint Frazier, Ryon Healy and Geraldo Parra.
We are looking for young players, draft picks and starting pitching.
Rogues are looking for middle relievers. Available for trade are:
Inf/of - Tony Kemp, of - Willie Calhoun, Jay Bruce, Matt Joyce, Inf - Jason Kipnis, Maikel Franco
Pitchers - Martin Perez, Brian Johnson, Erick Fedde, Touki Toussaint
The recent trade of Luis Urias to Milwaukee makes him more of a shortstop long term, it seems. We have Bogaerts and JP Crawford (nice vs RHP) there, so Urias, who crushed LHP, is now available along with Crawford.We are also looking to trade Brian Dozier, Jake Bauers, Franklin Barreto, Gregory Polanco, Austin Hays, Bradley Zimmer, Lewis Brinson for DH and 3B who hit rhp, good reliever, or draft picks.
Post-draft, the Whiz Kids still have some nice pieces that would better fit a contender. Eric Thames is a good option vs RHP at 1b/DH, Cameron Maybin very good OF vs RHP. Looking for picks, relief pitching, maybe a backup catcher or prospect/bounceback candidate to hold in the minors.
Here is where you can advertise players that you would trade for very little, e.g. a 7th round pick at most. It's really not intended to be the place you list all your cuts even though some choose to see it as such. If a guy is totally worthless to your team it's likely he's equally worthless to the rest of the league members.
Send in your candidates for the Bargain Bin and I'll post them.
CUBS - Yonder Alonso is available for an 8th round pick

NOTABLE IN THE LAMANNA CARD RATINGS ISSUE
I wasn't expecting the Lamanna spreadsheet (and pdf file) today but there it was when I woke up on Thursday. Here are a few things of import to the Mitts.
(1) Heredia didn't get Hernanned.
After making the recent swap with the Icons giving up Amir Garrett to bring in Guillermo Heredia I started to fear that, like they did for no discernible reason to Hernan Perez a few years ago, they'd smooth out the Heredia card. But he clocked in with 24 hits and 10 walks against lefties which is about what he deserves. His OF defense is fine at 2(-2)e8 . The -8 in the clutch is a bit of a downer. But overall I'm pretty happy with the way he turned out.
(2) Freese freezes up in the clutch.
David Freese has to be one of the great non-starting cards that's out there. He's got great on base and power on both sides of his card. He'd clearly be a top grade pinch-hitter. Unfortunately he drops 9 in the clutch. So when I'm playing the Mitts' away games I might want to use this pinch-hitter-extraordinaire in non clutch situations.
(3) Eddie Rosario's only redeeming feature is his clutch.
Eddie disappointed by being a LF/RF 4, bummer. His OB is pretty poopy with both sides being under 30. Yes, the big power is there. The news is that his clutch is a healthy +11 on both sides of the card. I'll take the good news where it comes.
(4) Lemahieu is GREAT in the clutch.
So DJ Lemahieu is a 2b-1 with a huge on-base and hits card (esp'ly against lefties). Today's bonus is a clutch up of 10 vs lefties and 11 vs righties.
WHAT DO THE PROJECTION SYSTEMS THINK OF ALEX BREGMAN?
Let's start with ZIPS
and here's the Marcel projection
and now the Steamer system has at it
All three project Alex to be in the 930 to 950 OPS range. Sounds right to me. I'd happily sign for that.
NOTABLE ABOUT THE CRIERS NOW THAT THE NUMBERS ARE KNOWN
WILLIE ADAMES has a sweet card vs righties except in one department. He's got 30 hits and 12 walks, a smattering of HR power, some base stealing potential and then..... -16 in the clutch. -16 ! are you freaking kidding me?
HOWIE KENDRICK is still tiptoeing between use as a 1Bman where his 4e4 rating is a mixed bag and just DH'ing.
ASDRUBAL CABRERA has a fair card vs lefties and righties. His 3B4 disappoints but he goes up big time in the clutch which helps.
Centerfield is in good hands defensively what with Brett Gardner cf 2(-1)e1 and Kiermaier's cf 1(-4)e6
ROBINSON CHIRINOS is not the Criers' best hitting catcher against lefties even if his card has 17 hits and 38 walks on it.
