    Smooth - you actually are listening to me and getting a good bullpen guy? Wow - don't tell Raj - he will be crushed to hear. :cool:

    dang. good job actually getting something in return for that horrible contract, i thought Sharkman37 was going to be the only one to pull that one off.

    Very sad to see Rivera go, but Fielder has beast-like potential and is an upgrade over Hosmer. The contract is nasty, but worth it if he can produce again. I approve this trade!

    If you cannot process this before the sim, if waivers runs out after or during sim, you can process it then. I am unsure how many days he has left. BigSmooth33 ? Also... I was under the impression via PM he was just on DFA, not waivers.

    He's on both, and has 1 day left on waivers. 11 on DFA.

    Yeah he had to clear waivers then would be on DFA. I was not sure how long he'd have left on waivers and didn't think anyone had claimed him.

    Does this screw the deal up?

    If you could take him off waivers before you export that would probably help Ryal out, but it should be doable without it.

    Fielder and Dunn in the same lineup may not net amazing average, but should drive in some runs!
