Rangers vs Honeybees

Lincecum vs Sabathia.

Scouting report:
Sabathia
-Good fastball
-Excellent Stamina
-Tricky Slurve

Lincecum
-Mid to high 90s fastball
-Deceptive Curve
-Devasting Changeup

Players to watch out for:
Andre Ethier: Best hitter in the lineup, fast runner, solid defensively
Ryan Braun: Very well against lefties, Power hitter, Super sophormore after ROTY?

That's a pretty good team there. However, it may be a little bit unnecessarily expensive. For instance, 12000 (Kuroda) for the Swingman is a bit much. You could also trade Adrian Gonzalez for a cheaper player, too (like Casey Kotchman, as sjax did)

You could trade Ortiz for Carl Crawford and let Braun DH.
You might be able to get better offense/defense for your 2B/3B
My suggestion for 2B is Asdrubal Cabrera, a very young 2B with awesome defense and a lot of potential.

actually, kuroda is 13330, which is waaay too high for a 33 year old swingman.

Oh I dont really care about youth as I put player improvement/deprovement on, so it does not matter. My salary is 75000 which isnt alot. Furthermore, I have the extra 50,000. I might trade Gonzalez for a 3rd basemen.

Anyway, I won/trashed during opening day since I played the first inning. We won 10-4 and the CocaCola player of the game waas Hanely Ramiez who went 3-4. I simmed the 1st month and we are leding the west 20-8. I swept all the player of the month awards, with Braun who hit .393 HR 11 RBI 41. Our closer, Pachot, who went 8 sv ERA 1.42 K 12. I proposed a trade for David Wright and Randy Wolf for Koroda and our 3rd basemen. Its a 2 star trade so its likely going to be accepted.

Adrian Gonzalez has been injured. Team medical staff have yet to see his condition. Due to his injury, we have brought up Halter, a promising 1B from AAA with 141 power and a TRJ of 3.

Duel of pitchers: Red Sox vs Honeybees

Lester vs Daniel Cabrera

Scouting Report:
Lester:
-Big Curve
-A slow starter
-Good pickoff

Cabrera:
-Poor against lefties
-Strikeout machine
-Walks alot of batters

Players to look out for:

Ortiz: He might be a in a slump, but he stands a good hance against Cabrera
Giambi: Best hitter, with club leading 8 HR.
