    Aurelio Lopez 2.0
    Gary Lavelle 2.75

    Dan's Fred Norman bid is the last good bid. It'll be about 20 minutes and I'll have winning bids posted.

    If the Skipjacks came away with both Phil Garner and Junior Kennedy, one of them can be had via trade. Both are EX gloves at 2B; one (Garner) gives a full season. We'll probably be looking to upgrade at OF/DH and can package another one to recoup the PAs.

    We got Biff Pocoroba! Yeah! He'll get a three-year deal.

    I hate being busy at 9 PM every night.

    I also find that my bid on Art Howe put me over the cap. I have therefore eliminated that bid and any bids I made after that point. It will take me a few minutes to go back and see what the status is on Howe, Dick Drago and Bill Travers.

    Also, if I have incurred a penalty for exceeding the cap let me know what it is so I can figure it into my future bids. Sorry for the mistake. This hasn't been the best day here.

    Lew, according to my spreadsheet you were okay with Howe but Drago and Travers were over. Of course, I could have a mistake on my spreadsheet too.

    No, I'm pretty sure Howe put me over. I just went back and figured things out. Right now, these are the correct bids on the three players involved. All of them were new bids during this phase, so all would have gone on to the 1M Phase anyway, so no harm done there. And you get two guys at lower bids going into the 1M round, as does Ed with Howe.

    Dick Drago - 2M, Boys
    Art Howe - 5.5M, Badgers
    Bill Travers - 1.25M, Boys

    Ill have that 1M Phase bid list up in a couple of minutes, too.
