    The -$1 thread

    The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived.

    Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction.

    This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed.

    (Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which case I check to make sure the salary is $10 or more...)

    OK...Clint Barmes was also released recently by Striking Back. Striking Back will also have his payroll reduced to $259 in next year's auction.

    I need to check the rules and history about Edwin Jackson. He was released at the beginning of the season, but I believe officially he was "reserved" because he was sent to the minors...but since he's back in the majors now, does he have to be recalled by the A-Team? And if not, does he count as a -$1 penalty?

    To summarize (with Boo's comments below):

    Kings of Arbitration: -$1 for releasing Andy Pettitte
    Striking Back: -$1 for releasing Clint Barmes
    The A-Team v.2006: -$1 for releasing Edwin Jackson
    Giambianblast: -$2 for releasing Casey Kotchman

    Hit me with it. He should have already been activated. I forgot about him to tell you the truth. Consider him free for the taking and a -$1 for the Soldiers of Fortune.

    first he accepts a trade by mistake, and now this.

    Everything that was once stable in my life is now ruined. I don't know what i'm gonna do. The white coats are coming, hopefully they'll let me have access to set my roster this weekend.

    For the record, the following players have had $1 ADDED to their cost at fantasyauctioneer.com:

    Carlos Guillen, GHR714
    Ryan Dempster, Striking Back
    Josh Barfield, A-Team, V. 2007
    Brad Hawpe, Kings of Arbitration
    Scott Rolen, Kings of Arbitration


    This is to enforce the -$1 penalties each of those teams incurred when dropping a player from a multi-year contract. The affected players will have their salaries reduced to the correct amounts when I load the rosters at Sportsline.
