He got dealt to Toronto! Funny.
OOTP rules. I set up the 2005 Mets, added myself as a first baseman (I couldn't watch Mientkiewicz suck up the joint), and took them all the way. I set up a salary cap, but I had a hard time signing anyone during the offseason, because spending went out of control, and I couldn't get any of my big three targets in the offseason:
Barry Zito, coming off a 14-13 season, signed a seven-year deal with LA at almost $31 million a year.
Jason Marquis, 16-9 in '05, signed a 4-year deal with Texas at $23 million per year.
Toby Hall, after displacing Mike Piazza halfway through the season (sorry Mike), signed a 3-year deal at $13.5 million per year with the White Sox.
We're 16-10 so far in '06, thanks to a pitching staff anchored by... Kaz Ishii. 3-0 in '06, he went 16-3 in '05 with a 2.02 ERA.
