500 bids $1.00/2 on Orlando Cabrera (Drop Cerda)

Nice try Frank but Kazmir is not yet eligible for bidding. Lucky for Kissimike their bids failed so Jeff Cirillo is still a Wilder.

I put Balfour on the DL...i didn't release him.

and what's the deal with big mike bidding 8 million on cabrera?

I'm confused. I thought total value of the contract wins a player. Paul's total was 9 (3 mil/3 yrs) and Mike's was 8 (8 mil/1 yr). I'm I seeing things?

Paul's bid for Cabrera should read 1.0 per yr for 3 yrs. Mike had some fun with his cap room by not letting anyone else get Cabrera. I'll put Balfour back on your team Paul, I know you miss him.

OK, so I'm not totally losing my mind.
