    That's my son's team. He's 9 and still learning that one has to give up a good player to get a good player in trades.

    But he managed to pry his favorite player in the whole world, Aaron Judge, away from Kepler!! I thought it was a bad deal for the little man when he proposed it a month ago, but it's turning out pretty well so far.

    I liked that trade for both teams. I desperately needed saves and I was OK with my power, so while Judge could be a huge giveaway I was a "motivated seller."

    LOL Hey, then maybe Maybin for Harper, straight up, would have worked.

    Being the baseball genius that I am (ha ha) I figured Judge for an all-or-nothing hitter who might get sent down to the minors mid-season, and actually talked him out of the deal -- I think he wrote you a "rejection" note saying he needed his saves -- but then he hit "accept" by accident. Needless to say, he's quickly learning not to trust his old man's instincts when it comes to sports.

    Ha! He sent me about five similarly ridiculous trade offers for Kris Bryant in about 10 minutes. Had to call home from the office to tell him to stop.

    So now everyone is going to send him minor leaguer for all star trade proposals. 😂

    I don't have the guts to do it but I seriously wonder whether it would be worth just voiding the catcher slot in our Fantasy League. You lose any H, RBI, R and HR, but it would help BA and OBP.

    I guess it's not worth it, but Jesus H. Doubleday catchers not named Posey are frustrating, and I even got a decent one.
