I'm excited to lead the Alhafr to glory...as soon as I find out what an Alhafr is, exactly.
Oh man, please chronicle the journey in how you find out what an Alhafr is. That sounds hilarious. Also, welcome. Really cool opportunity.

Re: 2042, Spring Training Sim #2 Chatter

I got my trophy today. This thing is awesome. It's heavier than I thought it would be. As soon as I'm settled into my new place, assuming that happens prior to the end of the world, I'll take a picture for everyone. Love it.

Re: OFFICIAL 2042 BBA HALL OF FAME BALLOT

I like the hall of fame this year. Have we ever had a year in which no one makes it? Has the MLB? Can't speak for BBA without doing some research, but the last time it happened in MLB was 2013...has happened a few (5+, maybe?) times. I know someone has done a comparison before and I think I remembe...

Edmonton 2042 Trade Block

Bolded changes 3/29 C Eric Fabre - I read an old feature on Katzenbogen and I want to make a decisive move to Katzenbogen this season if possible. Offer me something for Fabre if your interested. I’m not looking for anything specific, but he’s definitely not a bad catcher. Probably overpaid though....

Re: 42.13 Checking the Locks: Bullpen

Rounding out the sure fire lock acquisitions is Akiyama. The power lefty has seen significant success in Brooklyn the last seven seasons evidenced by a 3.36 FIP over that time. He's not just a lefty killer either. The 27 year old performs well against either side of the plate. Something to watch ou...

42.15 Mons Raider Tell All On How Madison Ended Up Paying His Salary To Play in Edmonton

By Mons Raider I don't remember the day I found out General Manager Chris Wilson was leaving for Portland, but it was a huge surprise. I remember when he scouted me back at Allis-Chalmers. He was the only General Manager there and my coach told me he was just there to watch me. I was so excited. I ...

42.14 The City of Red Deer and the Story of Two Warring Franchises Part One

Canadians are usually known for their apologetic personas and an overwhelmingly calm demeanor. That's not the case in Red Deer, Alberta where residents are conflicted with an immediate choice at birth, Edmonton Jackrabbits or Calgary Pioneers? Red Deer is almost perfectly halfway between the two cit...

Re: 42.13 Checking the Locks: Final Results

That's a lot of pitchers on the final roster. Looking forward to just how good Espinosa is. Yeah at the end of last year we started moving towards the same thing and with all of these FA signings I think if the bullpen performs well, I’ll be moving the team towards a much heavier bullpen usage sinc...

Re: Down the Stretch: Alicea Signing Leads FA Market

Has a player ever been a 31st round draft pick in an expansion draft then 2 years later cashed in on a huge pay day like Julio Alicea!?!? I’m just glad Portland got some usable parts in that trade with Edmonton. And yes, Mick will be back in Portland if he’ll lower his demands! He’s still asking $9...

Re: 99 Days of Negotiations: A Behind-The-Scenes Special

Excellent read. I loved this. Alicea is a beast, but he’s been aided by pitcher friendly parks for awhile. I definitely took that into account (thanks to TUBER). I think the move from Ducey Park to Grigg Memorial shouldn't be a huge difference since he's a groundballer and has done well limiting HR...
