Chet Edwards Comes Back Home

Chet Edwards, third baseman late of the Houston Armadillos, is going home.

Edwards signed a one-year $1,030,000 contract with the Seattle Monarchs, the team where he broke into the majors back in 2004.

The 33-year old Edwards hit .297 last year, with 3 home runs, 50 RBI and had 26 stolen bases. Over his 10 year major league career, Edwards has 419 stolen bases, good for fourth place on the all time list.

Next sim will be tomorrow night -- we'll go to 12/16.


Is it just me or is there NO other pending offers out there? Was Edwards the ONLY player to get an offer in this inflated off-season?
I made a couple of offers, Nate.
I made one offer. My offer is visible to me, but no one else's is.
I made some offers, too, and at least one is favored by the player. (I know one other owner who has favored offers, as well.)
I have multiple offers that are on the table and about 3 or 4 that are prefered, but I cannot see anyone else's offers.
FYI - there were 3 minor league deals that went down in the first sim too, all by Seattle. They signed 3B Christian Sitton, LF Daniel Torain and C Bo Harlow.
And Seattle is now done in free agency. Glad to have you back, Chet.
Am I the only one who *likes* the inflated demands? I think, ultimately, that the high-end salaries of players are generally unrealistically low, leading to an exacerbation of the advantage attached to budget size. These new demands, if they result in an increase in price tag for upper-level players, will really benefit lower budget teams. Like, for example, mine :-)
Frank, I agree with you. The one thing that I noticed about this league is that there was a lot of salary room for the lower end teams that was not being utilized, and the top teams were able to sign up a good deal of the best players for very low contracts. I think this will even out the talent in the league by 2020 and should make more teams able to compete for the Cecil Cup.
You guys may be right, but remember that someone has to agree to paying those salaries for that system to work. And it SURE won't be me, children. You can take that to the bank.

Where I'll be.

Counting my money. And chuckling.
