    I have updated the stats through last night's games, but as mentioned I won't do any highlights until after the next series, which will make six games or one sim week.

    No trades yet for Langford, Solomon, Dilone or Ferguson. So, I'm just putting it out this way:

    First owner who offers a second round future pick (any year 1983 to 1985) can take Langford and any one of the other three. A third rounder will take two of Ferguson, Dilone, Solomon. A fourth takes any one. I'm also open to offers, just PM me. The Legends also have seven mil left in cap space PLUS the salary of any departing player and will take on salary if needed, but I don't want to take on any contract beyond this year.

    Lew, I meant to get you an offer on Langford, but I've been crazy busy this week. Meetings at church 2 nights and Little League the other 3. What are the contract numbers for Langford and the potential package guys for that 2nd rounder?

    TRADE: Rick Langford and Joe Ferguson for the Thunder 1985 2nd round pick!

    We're hoping a flyball pitcher like Langford for will benefit from a change in scenery to the more flyball friendly Olympic Stadium and Ferguson gives us some depth at catcher.

    The Legends confirm this trade. Rick Langford was unfortunately never able to achieve the success that the Legends hoped he would, and had been used mostly in relief for his first four seasons. With next year's rotation shaping up to be Jack Morris (124 ERA+/1.17 WHIP), Burt Hooton (148/1.10); Bob Knepper (151/1.06); and Fernando Valenzuela (135/1.05) Langford figured to be a fifth starter at best and probably would pitch in relief instead, so management felt it was better to roll the dice on a draft pick that could help down the road. Ferguson simply was never able to find his bat at Shea. We wish them both well with their new team.

    That still leaves the Legends with the following players that we are willing to trade. All are on one year deals, so the contract ends after this season. We are looking for future picks and will certainly consider combining two or more of these players. If interested in any of them PM me. Always willing to negotiate as well.

    John Tamargo - backup catcher. Only good as a late season callup or injury replacement, with 58 PAs. 250K, 106 OPS+.
    Lamar Johnson - frist base. 102 OPS+, 4M. Plenty of playing time left.
    Miguel Dilone - OF. 120 OPS+, 7.25M. Has not played anywhere near up to his projected ability. Playing time is at about 75%.
    Eddie Solomon - P. 137 ERA+/1.33 WHIP. 9M.

    Send Hassey to the minors and lets have Ferguson take over his duties. See if a change of scenery sparks something in him. Langford will join the major league roster as well and we'll send Boggs down to the minors.

    RESET rotation:
    Niekro
    Tiant
    Langford
    Eckersley
    Haas

    Cl vs RH: Beckwith, Holland
    CL vs LH: Holland, Beckwith
    Setup vs RH: Lopez, Beckwith
    Setup vs LH: Lavelle, Holland
    Middle: Lopez, Lavelle
    Long: Barker, Lopez, Lavelle
    Mop: Lavelle, Barker
    Spot: Barker

    One of the big storylines for this season has to be whether Ben Oglivie can break the CKL record for RBI's set be Willie Mays at 190. Looks like he is on pace at this point.

    --The Thunder sweep the Tyrants, run their winning streak to 4 and build their lead lead to 7. Even more impressively they have built a +200 run differential.
    --We're past the trade deadline and 102 games into the season and still have 6 teams within 6 games of a playoff berth in the Robinson. Should be interesting.

    The trade for Oglivie may be the GM move of the offseason. Kudos to the Thunder.
