Is there going to be an MLB Mock trade deadline? I rember we did one a few years ago and it worked to great success. Is there going to be one this year?

Trades are always so hard to predict.

I can easily see the Dbacks getting Headley or maybe making a run for David wright.

The Mets are not trading David Wright in the middle of an MVP season when they are in the hunt.

He has an option for next year too.

How does this work, like do you have to predict exactly the prospects or just the team there going to.

To put it simple your the GM of a team. The thibg is finding a mod or 2 who can be on for a fair amount of time and stays committed for posting trades etc. I spoke to jeffy25 and he said hed check aroumd

The Mets are in the hunt midway through the season. Why would they trade Wright (their top hitter) to a team that could be neck and neck with them for a WC spot later in the season?

I'd like to take the Cubs if we do it. Think that'd be a fun team to play around as.

Yeah In the NBA one they did random teams. Would we do that or have the commishes assign them?

As the General Manager of the Baltimore Orioles who has just made a move to acquire Jim Thome and is in need of pitching, I swing a deal with the Astros for Wandy Rodriguez, taking on the salary he has left and giving up Brian Matusz and LJ Hoes for him.

this would be awesome. if so I am the first one to ask for the White Sox from what I see

Easy guys. We gotta see if we could get a mod or 2 to run it and then put up sign UPS in the first place.

This would be an awesome idea and we could negotiate trades between one another. I would really love to do something like this now that I got the jist of it.

I would volunteer to run it, but I have never seen it done in the past, so I wouldn't know what to do.

If someone wants to step up and run it, I could help as much as you need.

I would love if someone was able to host this....I have never done it with random teams, its usually first come first serve with picking teams, could be fun with random teams though

We did this a couple years ago, I remember asking, I believe PhillyLuver, if we could do it last year and he said no. :(

I would love to do this again, if so I call the Angels :)

I can run it. I was a commish for the MLB Mock (Not one of the two that ****ed the game up) and was the only one that remained to finish it.

I can run it for you

The reason we haven't done this in the past is because SI says that we aren't supposed to do games in season because it detracts from the activity of the forums.

The other problem is we always have trouble finding people to run MLB games, which is why the last MLB mock was such a bust.

brewerboy if you want to PM SI asking if it's okay to do this go for it

Super.

I really dont see it taking away from activity of the forums, its something fun for the PSD members to take part in and actually make some friends on here.....I know when I participate in these things I still read all the other forums I would normally do.

thanks for stepping up!....I say we give it another shot and keep it to just 1 or 2 people running it, I think this would be a fun thing to do in the middle of the season.

Detacts from the activity of these forums? Really? I have never played in an MLB/NBA/NFL PSD Mock Draft, and that statement really Makes me angry. I've always wanted to Try them, and I would not even get that chance because of that?

What is this North Korea?

PSD, should be honored there's enough activity in here for members to organize these events. So Norture them, and allow these events to grow because they in turn help the Forums grow.

I don't think anyone..in their right mind.. would go on a Forum just to play games, NOT Post anything and NOT read Anyones Posts/News/Threads.. :eyebrow:

I Love SI.. He's a Nice Guy, but You actually need to have basic communication skills to partake in these forum activities. You would actually have to some sort of relationship with other Members of the PSD community to join these events... it just doesn't make sense.. If anything it would encourage the forums to grow...

Okay. Here is the deal.

I am happy to do this, and help organize it and have it run appropriately in this forum.

But I NEED a poster that has either been a part of it, or helped run it in the past that can assist.

So I will need at least one other volunteer, PM me if you want to.
