    Fred deals one of his closers

    Looking to add a SP. Have some MI/Speed to spare. Shoot me an email if interested in a swap (alan@thefantasyfix.com). Thanks!

    I'm looking to trade away a closer. Familia, Madson, Tolleson, Boxberger are the options. I'm not fussy about the return. A hitter upgrade or SP upgrade. Email me (fredzinkie@yahoo.com) if interested.

    Story's time

    RotoExperts (Ciely) finally cashes out on Trevor Story, sending him and OF Curtis Granderson to FNTSY (Anderson) for SP Patrick Corbin and OF Randal Grichuk.

    First FAAB run

    It looks like things went fairly smoothly. The only correction I saw as I went through the claims was that USAT Fantasy (Hernandez) bid on Andrew Bailey, who was sent to the minors on Friday. That bid was invalid, so I just moved to the next player in his bid group. So Keith gets the previously unclaimed Dalier Hinojosa instead of Bailey. 

    Otherwise, let me know if anything is amiss.
