Company news, mostly, but also baseball in general.

Welcome! You are invited to wander around and read all of the comments that have been posted here at Patton & Co., but as soon as you register you can see the bid limits that Alex, Peter and Mike propose for each player, and you can post your own comments. Registering is free, so please join us!

Thanks everyone for the comments about the prices and the discussions. You all help me find some good changes, that I hope make the Guide better when it comes out next month.

Just want to share my thoughts. Slyke was a fantastic contributor to this website and I will miss his contributions. I always had a great respect for his input. You could tell he was a professional and knew his stuff. I'm very sorry for this loss for his family and the Patton & Co. community. Will definitely miss Slyke and his baseball wisdom. But, I'm also thankful that I was able to know him here as well. Rest in peace, Slyke.
