    You're over budget, so you cant take on any more salary.

    I'm not taking on salary, the cash from Timpe pays the salary for the rest of the season.

    Cash doesnt go into the budget.

    I understand, but the rule is for taking on salary which I am not doing.

    Yeah. I know. I'm not taking on a penny of salary obviously. That rule should therefore not apply.

    You're over budget, therefor you cannot add something else that contributes to putting you further over budget. Cash doesnt contribute to the budget so it has no affect on the salary. It has nothing to do with cash and everything to do with the budget.

    I'm not going to argue with you, the trade isnt getting processed as it currently stands. If you're over budget, you cannot add salary, simple as that.

    Maybe I'll try to add 100M over budget then message you about how upset I am about not being allowed to do it next time instead. But Ramiro Rodriguez has already been sent to Atlanta because this obviously rational trade wasn't allowed. You're gonna need to rectify that.

    Rodriguez is back on Baltimores active roster (I put Linares back in AAA). He needs to remain on the active roster the rest of the season as he's still technically a rule 5 pick.

    PROCESSED.

    I put Ramiro on Norfolk as you had released him but he wasnt a Rule 5 player anymore so he was just sitting in FA.
