$16 - but only because no one had any money left. With four teams separated by 4 points the past two weeks, tooth and nail bids and daily standing shifts, FAAB was only the half of it. Three trades last week of trades, one each by (variously, as standings moved each day) one team with each of the other three. Net: Damon, Greinke, Sweeney, J.Fox, Overbay, V. Mart, M. Young, Cuddyer, Pennington and Lugo went, and, Hafner, Duensing, Galarraga, A Rod, Teiexeira, Snider, Quentin, Mathis, Wieters, Peralta, Trout, M. Gonzalez came over. Of the guys going, Pennington (8), Cuddyer (29), V Mart (26) were the only keeper eligible in this 10 team AL only. Of guys add, Hafner (5), Duensing (2), Galarraga (2), Wieters (10), A Rod (36), Tex (48), Peralta (13), Gonzo (10) and Trout (2) were the keeper eligibles. Think maybe that team was hedging its bets on the crapshoot final weeks?

The Hackers (who disappointed me briefly by letting another team get Bullington a few weeks ago) splurged with a $13 preemptive bid for Manny. The Bags, the team they preempted, spent $6 for Hawpe and $6 for Francoeur.

Went for $13 in one league, but all September pickups become $25. Only two teams could have bid more. In my other league where there is no price increase, he went for $16 and can be kept at that price if he stays in the AL.

Posted an announcement last night that he was not available b/c the deal had not yet been finalized. We don't have a 24 hour rule or anything else, but they guy has to be assigned to an AL team. He wasn't.

Did any AL leagues allow the bidding for Manny to take place today?

Having grown up in Track and Field in the 70s/80s, I was pretty damn cynical about hitters and roids long before it became chic to be cynical about hitters and roids.

That said, there are some guys like Manny who I think were such pure born hitters, that they never needed roids to be an elite performer.

But needing steroids at this point in his career to be able to play left field more than 4 days a week? Quite possible ...

In my mind, the difference between Barry Bonds 1999 and Barry Bonds 2001 was Barry Bonds watching all the McGwire/Sosa hype in 1999 and deciding "if those SOBs want to see how many HRs someone can hit pumped up on chemicals, I'll be the SOB to show them!"

Similarly, ManRam's first 300 or so ABs with the Dodgers before his suspension, when he posted OPS (1.150) and AB/HR (11.8) reminiscent of his amazing age 27-28 peak, was what happens when Manny Ramirez decided "I'll show those SOBs in Boston". (Note that Roger Clemens had a similar epiphany upon leaving Beantown)

All of which goes to say - if as some people advocate we just did away with steroid testing altogether, the results would be absolutely freakish. When the most elite talents in the game juice, it's mind-blowing what they're capable of.

Gotta take some real chances to compete against teams with best freeze rosters. If I only looked at the numbers and didn't know the names, Manny is a shoe-in gamble in low teens. I think I can get Milton for $2 before the crap-shoot. Is it worth being competitive to have to listen to both of them all season? Yes, I'm desperate to make a push in 2010, but, oh, how I remember long ago when the daily feuds between Strawberry & Davy were front sports page and above the fold of the USAToday day after day. I drove 30 minutes each way from a low country remote beach to find a paper. Got to where I had to pull-over and read their running battle before I could complete my round trip journey. Ruined my summer there. Gave Daryl away in a trade in late August, as couldn't trade the manager, who I had previously showered Earl Weaver like adoration upon. Here we go again.

This reminds me. When were a standard 4 X 4 League, one of our owners dropped homers at the draft and bought everything else. We didn't catch on and he kept to his ploy with his in-season moves. we were so surprised and never bought into it until way too late, as at one time he was the NCAA career HR leader at a small college. The interesting part is he abandoned that strategy the very next season and has never won again-before or since. I asked him about it and he said it ruined following baseball for him. We've always overpaid for dingers, so it was insightful. In 25 years usually the team with the most homers always finishes in the money.

How did a team with Manny Ramirez playing for it -- if only for two-thirds of a season -- lead the majors in Defensive Efficiency?

Beats me, but they did. The Dodgers converted more balls put into play into outs than any other team last year.

I checked this out at Baseball Prospectus to see if Seattle's much-ballyhooed defense was supported by the stats.

It is. Second behind the Dodgers by the slimmest of margins (.714 to .712).

Four of the five top teams are in the NL. Care to guess the other three?

Giants, Reds and Cubs.

I never would have guessed.

Four of the five most defensively inefficient teams are in the AL. Care to guess all five?

In descending order (from .682 to .675): Orioles, Indians, Red Sox, Astros, Royals.

Yet another kudo for Greinke.

How big a difference is there between .714 and .675?

Huge.

So the question is, is this a repeatable stat? Will the order be somewhat similar this year. Or is it random?

Will replacing Mike Lowell with Adrian Beltre, Jason Bay with Jacob Ellsbury, and Jacob Ellsbury with Mike Cameron make a big difference in where the Red Sox rank?

Does how hard the balls in play are hit have any bearing?

I would think so, but using home runs as one measure of how hard balls are hit, the answer is no. The Mariners allowed 172 HR last year, the Royals 166.

Then again, Greinke pitched a lot.
