    His ship has Avisail-ed

    One minor FAAB adjustment for Week 2

    Adler adds Sean Rodriguez for $1.

    First week jitters

    There were a couple of manual overrides needed from the first week of bidding. But the good news is that the system performed its duties perfectly.

    Liss's (Rotowire) illegal pickup of Connor Gillaspie (he didn't have room for another 3B) sent the player to the second highest bidder, which was Dave Adler (BaseballHQ.com).

    However, all was not good news for Adler, who tried to sneak Billy Burns past the rest of us while Burns was on his way to Double-A Midland. 

    Liss gets his $16 back for Gillaspie and Pedro Ciriaco, whom he didn't have room for either. (Those weekends in Vegas are rough ...)

    Adler doesn't have to live with Sean Rodriguez and he only ends up paying an extra $2 when Burns is tossed back.

    We'll hope for smooth sailing next week.

    He went to Jarrod!

    First deal of the year ... Rotowire (Liss) trades OF Jarrod Dyson and SP Jarrod Parker to Schechter for RP Bryan Shaw and 3B Trevor Plouffe.

    Schechter immediately reclaims $8 FAAB for Parker being out for the season. (And manages to get around the no-trading FAAB rule.)

    While on the subject, Wolf/Colton reclaim $2 FAAB for Luke Hochevar.
