Jed Jefferson is making $12 million this year, but he is in the last year of his contract. I considered trading him, but the return wasn't too high. Today the Nationals offered 1B Hye-Yeon Im with us retaining 25% of Jefferson's salary. The 37 year old does make less ($6.7 million), but is signed through next year with a vesting option if he reaches 550 PA. He hasn't done that since 2062 and I don't think he will, but I absolutely hate this deal because we already have a couple first baseman that can't field, so adding one that's expensive and can't field and doesn't hit well anymore sounds like a better solution.

With a 12-16 month the Gators now sit 11 games back in the AL West. Our owner set seven goals before the season, and we are on track to hit exactly 0 of those. We just don't have the budget to acquire a Cy Young Award winner, or the desire to give up the prospects. Nor do I have much interest in increasing our number of stolen bases, and I'm not against upgrading our manager, but there is no clear candidate that's better.

The San Francisco Giants traded 29 year old minor league third baseman Riley Cartwright to the Gators today in exchange for 20 year old shortstop Francisco Ereira and 20 year old right fielder Riley Collins. Cartwright is nothing special, his brief time in the majors resulted in a negative WAR, so he's not a player I think will help us at all.

Ereira is a slick fielding defensive shortstop with speed. I'm not sure if he'll ever make it to the majors, but I like his future better than Cartwright's. Riley Collins is perhaps the most interesting name being dealt. He's 20 years old and is making scouts notice.

I liked Collins so much that I even tried to reacquire him, but that would have taken Nelson Flores, who is hitting .296 with 19 home runs and 43 RBI with 2.6 WAR.

Before we get into the draft I had to make a trade to clear up some of our unwanted contracts. We aren't going anywhere this year, but I don't want to go into another offseason without any payroll flexibility. Of course, I'm worried making this trade now gives time for other teams to dump more bad contracts my way. We'll see though.

Going to Atlanta is SP Felipe Garcia, LF Gustavo Ondrias, 1B Hye-yeon Im, 2B Doug Raymond, and SP Hilarius Windischgraetz. One of those things is not like the other, with Windischgraetz only 22 and going 4-2 with a 4.35 ERA and 1.1 WAR in 13 starts. It definitely hurts to have to include him in the deal, but we needed to incentive Atlanta somehow because we are saving $27 million.

We were able to acquire 23 year old right fielder Victor Cano, a former late first rounder who is playing in low A. He has had some injury problems, but he is the best we could get.

In the amateur draft the Gators were drafting 28th thanks to our successful year last year, and selected right fielder Kuemon Hirano in the first round. That was followed by starting pitcher Michael Rogers, centerfielder Patrick Kelley, starting pitcher Carl Corry, and right fielder William Smith.

My biggest fear came true less than a month after clearing payroll. Welcome to New Orleans Dylan Mejia. He's a fragile 35 year old second baseman who is making $23 million this year and next, along with a vesting option for 2068 if he reaches 550 PA. In the past five years he's been worth a total of -1.5 WAR.

Going to Houston is Victor Cano and LF Damon Hutchins. Hutchins isn't as good of a prospect as Cano, but certainly someone I didn't want to lose.

The revolving door continues for New Orleans with 2B Dylan Mejia leaving just two days after coming to the Gators. Shortstop prospect Keith Hicks and catcher Danny Dukes are also heading out of town to Mexico City in exchange for 3B Dale Wright.

Wright is signed through 2068 with a player option for 2069 at $26 million per year. He's hitting .203 this year with 10 home runs and a WAR of 1.1. His personality descriptions include "dogs it too often", "slow to catch on", "has not gotten along with many coaches.". Welcome to New Orleans!

The Gators went 10-16 in June as we sit 14 games out of first place in last. Our biggest goal for July is to escape the trade deadline without losing too many prospects, or acquire too much deadweight.

My goal lasted just two days. Going to the Tigers are first baseman Blair Polk and shortstop prospect Jose Quintanilla, with 1B Ted Wyatt coming back to New Orleans. Wyatt will begin, and likely stay at AAA as a 29 year old who hasn't hit great, and fields first base poorly.

Marvin Moore just took over as our starting first baseman yesterday going 2-4 with a homer in his debut. Today he was traded to the Giants for 31 year old catcher Eric Franks. It's going to be hard to field a team soon if the trend of trading starters continues.

July has been a rough month so far. Another trade, this time with the Phillies offering 2B Josh Jones (.225, 3 HR, 12 RBI, -0.1 WAR, $4.4 million through 2067). We acquire him for the bargain basement price of reliever Lorenzo Rodriguez and our number four prospect, 19 year old starting pitcher Juan Martinez.

There are two players on our major league roster who I didn't want to lose - Nelson Flores and Duane Smith. Today we bid farewell to Flores who was hitting .270 with 25 home runs, 64 RBI, and 2.4 WAR in his rookie season. He was traded along with 25 year old minor league pitcher Dalton Meggison to the Rockies in exchange for LF Tristan Edmonds and 20 year old second baseman Julian Tufino.

This trade should at least make it easier to chase the number one overall draft pick.

This concept of accepting every trade has turned into a great equalizer. Today we lost our #15 prospect (22 year old 3B Will Niemela) along with 3B Eugenio Freixinho to the Mariners in exchange for 34 year old catcher Stephen Williams. Williams is hitting .229 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI worth 1.0 WAR this year and making $14.3 million this year and next, with a vesting option in 2068 if he reaches 480 plate appearances.

Perhaps my biggest mistake was not being proactive and trading anyone on our big league roster with value, or it could be my cost saving deal to get under payroll. That just allowed teams to dump players on us. Today was another one of those deals with the Rockies sending 32 year old 1B Jose Padilla (.189, 2 HR, 9 RBI, -0.5 WAR, $4.6 million and arbitration eligible) along with minor league right fielder Terrence Velazquez in exchange for LF Allen Patterson (.273, 14 HR, 48 RBI, 0.6 WAR, $492,000).

The Gators completed six trades last month, while winning just 4 games. We're just 23 games out of first place….I'm really looking forward to this season ending.

August went a little better than July with 5 wins instead of 4, but it was still pretty bad in New Orleans. We did welcome back Jyotirbhaga Sourabh from the disabled list though after his torn labrum.

We avoided a historically bad season with a 11-14 record in September and 2-4 October to tie the worst record in New Orleans history (55-107).

New Orleans Gators - 67-95 (.414) 20 1/2 GB
2064 - New Orleans Gators - 61-101 (.377) 50 GB (Season Score - 43)
2065 - New Orleans Gators - 96-66 (.593) - GB, Lost Division Series 4-1 to Cleveland Indians (Season Score - 703)
2066 - New Orleans Gators - 55-107 (.340) 40 GB (Season Score - 1)

After a dreadful season it's time to get brutal with our roster. The Gators have non-tendered reliever Norberto Sanchez, catcher Eric Franks, first baseman Jose Padilla and Denny Robinson, third baseman Roger Mathis, and outfielders Doyle Tate and William Baker.

We need to trim payroll to get under budget, and each one of the players leaving should be replaceable.

It's that time of year to deem one additional player untouchable, and this year I chose 24 year old Duane Smith, who was the #78 prospect in baseball when we acquired him last year. It was a close call between Smith and Kuemon Hirano, who was our #1 pick last year. At 18 years old Kurano is a ways off, while Smith should be ready to join our rotation soon. Hopefully it's a decision I don't regret.

This has been brutal, and the fact that I can't move our big money contracts and we're over budget makes for a quiet offseason. Until the dreaded message comes. So and so proposes the following trade….

This time the so and so was the Cubs General Manager, and he wanted to send us 1B Nathan Evans, a 27 year old who hit .271 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI last year. We just needed to send 2B Josh Jones (while retaining 75% of his $4.4 million salary) along with right fielder Kuemon Hirano.

Are you serious? I was just debating whether to protect last year's number one pick, and now he's gone.

Yea, I almost never even look at the trades I've been offered by the CPU. They're awful....

They truly are awful. I've never really looked at them too closely before this and usually just ignored trade offers, or use them as a point to work out a trade with the team if who they were interested in was someone I was willing to move.

It's definitely a different type of challenge though, which is a good thing I think.
