I did/do as Seadogs said -- put in multiple bids to cover the possibility of picking up (and dropping) multiple guys.

I do the same thing. I just hadn't notice it show up in the lists that way.

I guess I should have made more of an effort to trade Tomblinson last week, rather than release him.

I did something similar, Peter.

3 possible pick ups for me.

So for Tomblinson for instance, I have three bids in case he was the third guy I got and I had used my previous two "cut players" on the others.

Didn't happen for me, but you get the idea.

What the Garry Oaks did was put in 2 bids ... there are 2 reasons I can think of to do this ...

1. When you want bid on multiple players, you can essentially create a "release this guy first" list in case you don't get all of them.

2. By entering multiple bids for a player, you raise that player up on the order that the player is processed (which is based on the total value of bids entered).

Looks like Gary's Oaks got into a bidding war.

I think that's a fine buy, and I'm a little peeved at myself for not bidding more aggressively. A month or six weeks of a solid hitter is of real value, especially when the reserve ranks are so thin.

If he clears waivers, he's the minimum.  The Rays eat the salary minus the minimum.  Ultimately, nobody has to pay his salary if they want him, unless they want to make a deal with the Rays to take a piece of it.

Miguel Gonzalez is in the same boat.  He's got suiters, but only after he clears waivers, I'm sure.

Kim, who knows what's happening there now. Too many conflicting reports.
