We all know what each other collect so we'll kinda already know who we'll be buying for anyway but Jacfires idea works for me.

Man, I'm starting to think SAF's strategy wasn't so bad afterall...

He goes into next year with Otani, Judge, Bellinger, Bregman, and Lindor. Damn.

Everyone will know who they're buying for, but the secrecy will be in who you will be receiving a gift from, as well as not knowing who anyone else is buying for.

I'm going to send a PM out to everyone about gathering addresses and collection info. Doesn't look like SAF or D2R will be involved, so I'll stick to everyone else.

Gotta hand it to him on that. But, it sure came at a price, with just 7 wins over our first three years (though 5 came last year). He still has some work to do, but sure does have a some great young guys as a core

How things change in a few short years. This is pretty funny to look back at

So, with the fourth overall pick, I select Shohei Otani.

That Aaron Nola trade that got SAF that fourth overall pick brings me back to the good old days. Hands down the best trade I've ever made in this league. Traded a minor league pick for Nola and Contreras. Still happy about that one.

Talking about trades, I'll be heading home next week from college for a whole month and I'll probably have nothing to do for most of it, so I'd like to get into some trade discussions over the next month.

Here's a list of guys I'm currently shopping:
Edwin Encarnacion
Dee Gordon
Khris Davis
Carlos Gonzalez
Chris Davis
Maikel Franco
Jon Lester
Blake Treinen
Gio Gonzalez
Patrick Corbin
Luke Weaver
Sean Doolittle
Felix Hernandez
Matt Harvey
Joe Musgrove
Jerad Eickhoff
All minor leaguers except Gleyber Torres
Lower round draft picks

Looking for:
1st and 2nd round draft picks (can do player for pick trades depending on the player)
Position replacements (if I trade you a solid OF, I may want an OF in return)
Young SPs
Maybe another solid closer

Players not listed may be available, but some may be extremely hard to get from me (Nola, Cole, and Springer, to be specific).

So I've been thinking a bit, would you guys use a Discord server if I set one up? That way we could have everyone including deathy and SAF all in the same spot again

Basically a chat room. Original purpose was for gamers to be able to have text and audio chat with the people they game with, but a lot of leagues use it to communicate too. Basically would be this thread but off of Blowout, so SAF and D2R could chat with us too. I wouldn't want to completely abandon this thread, but giving everyone the ability to post in the same place would be pretty nice

This is random but do any of guys have Instagram? I know I already follow Tex on there, I thought it'd be cool if we could connect on there as well if possible.

I have one but it's not card related, just a regular one.

I'll do the random for the Secret Santa list once I get all the information from everyone. Still waiting on 2 people for that.

Posting an invite link to Discord in our league. Expires in 24 hours, so try to sign up before then. Set your username to your Blowout username, please, so we can keep everything straight

Went to the Pirates FanFest today, we’re on our honeymoon and I somehow convinced her to let us go. I think she had more fun than I did

Didn’t get to meet any current Pirate aside from AJ Schugel but we met a ton of alumni players (who I’d prefer to meet anyways), all the TV guys, and GM Neil Huntington. If the day couldn’t get any better we saw Clint Hurdle when we were leaving and got our picture with him!

I also added 3 GU balls to my collection, a Tony Watson nameplate and Tony Watson GU jersey to my collection

Amazing day
