    There are 2 Bill Hallman's who played in 1903 . . . which one is on your roster?

    You know - I drafted BOTH Bill Hallmans in 1901. After looking on spreadsheet I see I did not keep either one after 1901. Please remove him from roster. I am now proud owner of ZERO Bill Hallmans. Will edit roster in this thread

    If I counted correctly, there is one team that hasn't posted their roster here. If we get that, is there an easy way to compile that into one list with stats? If not, I have a LOT of research ahead of me.

    Trade Announcement

    The Kumquats and the Express have reached terms on a major trade. The Dust Bunnies get Honus Wagner (15M, signed through 1908), Express #2 pick in 1905 and Express #3 pick in 1906. The Express receive back Nick Altrock (14.5M, signed through 1906); Monte Cross (1M, signed through 1903), and the Dust Bunnies first round picks in 1903, 1905 and 1907.

    Jack will confirm.

    With that trade complete, the Express are now offering Nick Altrock for trade. Altrock has only 79 IP this year with a 101 OPS+/ 1.20 WHIP. In 1903 he has 83/1.05/307IP (had to really pitch in some bad luck there, with a WHIP that low and only allowing 2 HR). He then has excellent years in 1905 (131/1.07/316) and 1906 (123/1.08/288). If interested, PM me.

    Not only is this trade a blockbuster but it defies the laws of the space-time continium by sending Wagner 80 years into the future to play on the 1982 DustBunny squad. I cant wait to see how he stacks up against modern pitching

    really the only way to compose a list of rookies is to check out the 1903 new debut list on baseballreference.com

    Yeah, I already know about the New Debuts thing. I'm just hoping for the FA list, so I don't have to do a million years of research (the missing roster would only help with FAs anyway)

    The Dust Bunnies would have loved to get Wagner. Unfortunately, only the Kumquats can confirm this deal.

    For DMB owners, is the file sent out the one we are using? I ask because in browsing, I found a BIG error. Look at Kaiser Wilhelm. In the DMB file, his hits runs and earned runs are all diffferent that BBref. NoticIf ed when sorting pitchers by ERA and saw 0.00 for 86 IP's. If we are gonna use this database I suggest we come up with a plan to verify stats. If commish agrees I will compare and compile a list of errors.

    Anaheim Angels are in the market for a cheap 2B or 3B. Not looking for anyone great. Just someone that can give us a full season of PA's with 0.0+ WAR. We are willing to part with a draft pick in return.

If you don't do your job, what they're paying you for, why should they pay you? You just can't put in eight hours, that's what a lot of people don't realize about athletes. Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    Wish I had someone like that, but I don't. As I understand it, if one of my players played at another position in 1902 I can use them there even if they are unrated there in 1903. Is that correct, or am I wrong in that belief? If so, Bill Keister may be playing second base in 1903. Ugly thought.

    If you, or anyone else, needs a full-time second baseman, I've got three. Danny Murphy isn't going anywhere, but George Magoon and Tom Daly are certainly available. I'm looking for innings in return, or failing that, a draft pick.

    The Kumquats trade Billy Lauder to the Angels for the Laquey 3rd round pick in the 1903 draft. Garry will confirm.

    Harry Arndt and Kid Nichols are missing from our roster. We'll need placeholders for them since neither played in '03

    Is it too late to edit roster? In checking spreadsheet, I see I DID NOT want to keep Snake Wiltsie past 1902.
