    March, 2021 Before the first spring game, I'd let nine players go. Well, I wouldn't call them players exactly. Not a one had a rating over 57. Not a one had an age under 31. They weren't good, and they weren't going to get better. They'll be able to tell their grandchildren they had a spring tryout with a major league baseball team. In some cases, they already can, because the grandchildren have already been born. All position players. I had several pitchers in camp who would have fit...

    March, 2021 We're in Arizona. Cactus league. Sure, everybody else in our division is in the grapefruit league, in Florida. Ray Bernard never got around to making a deal with a city in Florida to host us. By the time we realized this, all Adam could do was get us "some town with an army name in Arizona." He couldn't remember where it was. I went through the names of every town and neighborhood of Phoenix that I could remember. It was none of them. "Do you mean Flagstaff?" I finally asked....

    February, 2021 Jill glared angrily across the desk in her office. "You do what you need to do," she bit off the words tightly. "Go ahead." The man on the other side of the desk looked as though he would rather be anywhere else in the world. "I'm going to regret it, aren't I?" he asked, plaintively. She sat back. "Not at all. If you do what you should do. If you get out of my way. If you recognize that I am the one who is in charge here, and act accordingly, then no. You won't regret...

    February, 2021 I had some interest in signing Adam Jones, to play left field for us. He had spent his career in Colorado, was decent though not spectacular, and was actually out of baseball last year. Decided to make a comeback. He went to Baltimore. I had some interest in signing Anders Brooks, to play left field for us. He had spent his career in Baltimore, batted .267, hit almost 200 homers. They released him, which made room for Jones. Not thinking that he would be a starter in most...

    February, 2021 "Natalie?" Mal asked. "Do you have the contracts for the radio team?" Natalie looked away from the computer on her desk. Even at her age, she felt vaguely guilty when caught by the team's de facto assistant GM while shopping online. "Though," as she'd always told herself, "if they want me to work and not play online they should give me more work to do. It's their fault, not mine." Sometimes she wondered if that line of reasoning would work if they wanted to fire her for...

    Your dynasty is awesome. You should read mine, it's about half as good as yours. (Which is still pretty good, mind you.)

    Your dynasty is great. Keep up the good work. Honestly, Baltimore should be an NL town.
