    Default Trade and Free Agent Prediction Contest

    Just wondering if there's enough interest in this, I set up one last season and I also did a hockey rendition at the trade deadline.

    Come on guys, this is all good fun.

    I'm not expecting everyone to do well, because predicting these players destinations is tough.

    Free agency opens up today!

    "Otani, Japanese high school RHP,announced that he is joining the Nippon Ham Fighters. Not challenging to the MLB at this point."

    Here's the first update.

    Axeman33- 3 points

    Everyone else is yet to pick up a point in the standings, but its still early. Note to havanablast- I can't count predictions when a player already signed there

    Bwahahaha the good move would have been to just put the dodgers name beside everyone and you'd be killing it... I'm sure they're not done yet...

    Figured as much. I wasn't sure how to deal with those that had signed...so pencilled in where they signed. Figured you had it taken care of. (Probably should have just deleted them looking back now).
