>USMLB DAILY

>Welcome to the second edition of the USMLB Daily. A lot of news and information will be in here and fun things will be added through out it. I hope that you enjoy and that the report will be up Monday through Friday till the end of the season. Draft information will also be added to the Daily report after the draft. Trades that happen from this day forward will also be added to the report. If there’s anything you would like me to cover or add (real or not) just let me know and I’ll do my best to add it.

Interview with the defending American League Champions the Anaheim Beefpound:
The team hasn’t gotten out to a good start leading the American League West like normal but it looks like this year might just be a little tougher for them. Well have to wait and see.

So what are you goals for the season: “Nothing less than a World Series Championship is all but a failure in my book. I feel you must always get better and that is all that is my next step since I fell short last year. And I would also like to recover from poor decision making on my part when setting my budget this year.”
Well this could be the year for the Beefpound but I believe there’s better competition in the American League this season so it could be a battle all season long to get there.

If you could have any player from another team who would it be? and why?: “I love me some Khoury Glass. You can never have enough speed!”
I think every team would love to have a player like that. A rare talent in the majors that’s for sure.

What team scares you the most to face: “The Xpress. Knowing how bad they were last year and that they are putting some wins together and his young talent is coming around.”
He may want to forget about the Arizona Sting who are nipping at there heels as well.

Who do you think will make it to the World Series out of the National League: “I think Monterrey stands a good shot. They are solid at home and that makes it very tough to head south to try to knock them off. IF they get home-field advantage, they will be a force that can roll through the competition to meet me in the finals. Booya!”
I really wouldn’t mind seeing a rematch in the World Series between the Beefpound and the Stars once again.

Anything else you would like to add: “I love playing in this league and nothing can be better then playing here.”
I will have to agree with him with that one.

Trades:
The Tacoma Pioneers sent Buddy Colbert (P) and Victor Navarro (SS) to the Durham Bulls for Vic Nye (CF), Don Fielder (P) and Brad Allen (P). Rating: C
This trade helped both team fill some needs. It looks like Durham gets a reliable reliever and a young shortstop with a shot at the majors, while the Pioneers got a decent outfielder and pitchers that will help out there minor league teams with maybe Allen getting a shot at the majors next season.

The Monterrey Stars sent Roy Walker (C) and Seth Dillon (P) to the Houston Hitmen for Julio Cruz (C) and Seth Law (P). Rating: B-
If this was near the trade deadline this would be a blockbuster trade. The Hitmen get a young, powerful catcher in Walker who will probably become there everyday DH and a good young reliable starter to help there pitching staff in Dillon. The Stars got a young catcher with some upside but I don’t see him staying with the team for long as he’s more of a DH hitter. But I think the real reason for this trade was that the Stars wanted Law which I hate to say this is just like the pitchers he has now and he will still need to find that ACE he’s looking for.

The Anaheim Beefpound sent Tito Holt (P) to the Portland Landports for Robinson Buckley (1B) and Gene DeJean (LF) with 3.5M going to the Beefpound. Rating: D-
I didn’t like this trade the first time I saw it and I don’t like it anymore now I’ve really looked into it. I believe that the Beefpound just raped the Landports on this deal. The Landports got a decent pitcher with some control problems with his last year of options so there going to have to pay him next season, while the Beefpound got two good prospects and 3.5m in cash. I may only veto a couple trades a year and I did veto this trade and I hope that the other owners will take the time to look at trades like this.

Rumor Mill:
Three people in the Tampa area have climb a billboard with the Manta Rays logo on it and said there not coming down until the Manta Rays finally when another game. I would say these people are crazy but with the nice warm better in Tampa it’s got feel good just hanging out with your friends for a while.
I’ve learned from some sources that Vawt the owner of the Atlanta Brave Vawts almost fired his manager and destroyed his office from the team poor start. The same source has said that players and managers are staying away from him as they don’t know if they’ll still be on the team if they catch him in the wrong mode. Let’s hope things get worked out in Atlanta because a unhappy Vawt is bad for the league.

Poll Question:
I guess you guys would like to see Vawt under the hot seat next. Let’s hope his head doesn’t exploded from the tough questions he will face about his team poor season so far.

Useless Information:

Hoss Boone (1B), Guy Williams (C), Richard Evans (CF), Frank Jacobsen (LF) and Kane Hines (P) are the only players to be four time AllStars in the league.
