Say Goodbye to: Geoff Blum

IF – Geoff Blum
Acquired: August 24th, 2010 ($0 FAAB)
Released: September 14th, 2010
Geoff Blum was a late pickup to help fill the MI hole for the RoadRunners, following the idiotic release of Omar Infante. Prior to acquisition, Blum had had a pretty hot August (for him, anyway, and the thinking was at least he’d provide a little average and some pop. As you can see, nothing of the sort made it into the official scorebooks. Maybe he’s a good clubhouse guy. Later.

Roster Moves – Week 24 – September 14th, 2010

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SS Angel Sanchez, Astros ($0 bid) – Active at MI

Up:

  • 3B Chase Headley
  • OF Drew Stubbs (to UT)
  • SP Edinson VolquezCMCM
  • SP Yovani Gallardo
  • SP Ian Kennedy

Move:

  • UT Albert Pujols (to CM)

Down:

  • CM Adam LaRoche
  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • RP Aroldis Chapman
  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • SP Josh Johnson

Cut:

  • MI Geoff Blum

Notes:

  • The Marlins have shut down SP Josh Johnson for the 2010 season. He has an inflamed shoulder and a pulled back muscle, and he missed a throwing session over the weekend.  Since Johnson’s WBRL contract expires after this season, I guess it’s goodbye.
  • Hitting roster moves for this week were made purely on a batting average and stolen base basis.  So LaRoche (who contributes only in HR and RBI and is slumping a bit) goes to the bench for the first time in 2010.  Similarly, slumping 3B Chase Headley gets activated over similarly-slumping Casey Blake, due to Blake’s lack of mobility.
  • The only other team to make FAAB pickups, second-place Get Off Kong!, picked up former 2010 Roadrunner Luis Durango of the Padres.
  • Contingent selections for Sanchez were Colorado’s Jonathan Herrera (previously on the 2010 Roadrunners), and Cubs’ MI Darwin Barney.

Roster Moves – Week 23 – September 7th, 2010

Up:

  • OF Marlon Byrd
  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • RP Tyler Clippard

Down:

  • OF Drew Stubbs
  • MI Geoff Blum
  • RP Kenley Jansen

Note:

  • SP Edinson Volquez was recalled from Single-A Dayton, and may replace Aaron Harang in the rotation.

Meet the New Guys: Geoff Blum, Cameron Maybin

Blum is filling in all over the infield for the now Berkman-less and Feliz-less Astros. Hoping to shore up the MI position, Blum has been getting some playing time at second base lately, but with Tommy Manzella back, he’ll now have to fight with Angel Sanchez, in addition to Jeff Keppinger, for playing time. (Rotoworld)

OF Cameron Maybin is expected to be the everyday CF for the Marlins starting today, as OF Cody Ross was claimed by (and traded to) the Giants. Maybin was originally purchased by Get Off Kong! for $11 in the 2010 WBRL auction, so his salary will be effective here. He’s hit .338 with a .915 OPS since his June demotion to the minors and will probably be granted a large chunk of at-bats for the out-of-contention Fish. (Rotoworld)

Roster Moves – Week 21 – August 24th, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Cameron Maybin, Marlins ($1 bid), Reserve
  • UT Geoff Blum, Astros ($0 bis), Active at MI

Up:

  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • OF Lorenzo Cain

Down:

  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • OF Roger Bernadina

Cut:

  • C Ronny Paulino
  • SS Cristian Guzman

Notes:

  • C Ronny Paulino was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for PEDs.  Since the Marlins only had 42 games left, he’s done for the season.  There have been 2 MLB PED suspensions this season, and the Roadrunners have had both (the other was Edinson Volquez).
  • The Roadrunners need one more steal to obtain 50 hitting points.  We’re stuck at 49.5 currently. However, the pitching has hemmorraged WHIP and ERA this week, dropping almost 5 points.  We went from 4th to 7th in WHIP and 3rd to 5th in ERA.
  • The Pi Train added former 2010 Roadrunner Nick Masset to his roster with a $0 bid. Masset has recovered nicely from his 5 earned runs given up on Opening Day. So have the Roadrunners, actually.
  • OF Cameron Maybin is expected to be the everyday CF for the Marlins starting today, as OF Cody Ross was claimed by (and traded to) the Giants. Maybin was originally purchased by Get Off Kong! for $11 in the 2010 WBRL auction, so his salary will be effective here.
  • The Maybin acquisition for $1 FAAB was the last dollar in our budget.  It’ll be $0 bids from here on out, folks!
  • This post was published from Hudsonville, Michigan, where AaRr staff arrived late last night.  FAAB bids were submitted from Springfield, Missouri early Monday morning.
