    Yeah I kind of thought that would happend so once I realized I couldn't get them both for about 10M each I decided to just put the bid on Perry and wait it out.

    --Yeah I've more than once tried to land 2 big targets and ended up with neither. Thats why I decided to go all out for my main guy for each team early this year. I still have enough to pursue my secondary targets, but won't have a huge hole if I coem up short.

My pitchers have good stats, my park favors them, and my fielders are acceptable (though not nearly as good as last year's club).
    Goltz looked real good to me as well, but the price tag was way more then either of my teams could afford, even for just the single season.

    Rau was a nice cheap pickup. I intended to increase the bid on him for the Jaxx but it simply slipped my mind with everything that was going on last night - and with the Jaxx already bidding on almost a dozen players.

    I think the max you can go with Harrah is 4 years

    This was my mistake in offering the deal for 5 years in my HTD offer, which forced anyone else to match it (or I suppose point out the error when it was posted). I think Garry should be allowed to have the 5 year deal.

    I forgot Harrah was a HTD player. If the original HTD offer did have a five year contract attached to it then yes, Garry should get the five year contract. No argument from this corner.

    That price suprised me. I had him scheduled to receive a 7.25M HTD bid back when I owned that team, so I guess I overvalued his worth on the open market.

    I'm not going to be around tonight. Is there anyone who will be able to bid for me, preferably someone who won't be bidding much for themselves?
