He's now on the two teams that I have that are actually in the race so I hope he does well.

We went $11 to get him in PCL.  With Pablo Lopez down, we had the cap wiggle room to add him.

Hill went for $7 FAAB in both leagues that do FAAB on Saturday nights.

Moves to Mets
July 23, 2021
Hill was traded from the Rays to the Mets in exchange for Tommy Hunter and an unnamed prospect Friday, pending medical review, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unusual for a contender like the Rays to trade a member of their starting rotation, though they've been mixing and matching starters all season, with 12 different pitchers making at least one start thus far. Hill fills a need for the injury-plagued Mets and could see a small boost to his value from the move to the National League. The 41-year-old has fallen off a bit from his late-thirties peak, as his 3.87 ERA comes with a modest set of peripherals including a 23.4 percent strikeout rate and a 4.55 FIP, but he's still a useful starter for a team that desperately needs innings.

I wonder what the other four think of today's game?

Nice effort from the oldest player in MLB while Pujols is looking for a team.

Rays netted him for $2.5 million. It's the end game, just before the crapshoot. Rays had a few slots open and are grabbing whatever's good left on the board.
