Roster Moves – Week 28 – October 2nd, 2012 – Final 3 Days!

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Hector Sanchez, Giants ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • CM Kevin Frandsen, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • MI Pete Kozma, Cardinals ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • UT D.J. LeMahieu, Rockies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Jonny Venters, Braves ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Stinson, Brewers ($0 bid, Add to Actives)


  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • SP Jake Westbrook


  • OF Donovan Solano (from MI)


  • RP Jon Axford
  • SP Jhoulys Chacin
  • C Ryan Hanigan
  • CM Chris Johnson
  • MI Logan Forsythe


  • OF Travis Snider
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • OF Justin Maxwell
  • SP Wily Peralta
  • SP Zack Greinke
  • RP Luke Gregerson


  • All of the pick-ups were made specifically with categories in mind. With only three full days remaining in the season, and the Atomic RoadRunners in first place over Misogynistic Padres by one point, we need all the assistance we can get.
  • Batting Average: Frandsen, LeMahieu, Kozma, and Sanchez are all hitting over .300. Hanigan, Johnson, Forsythe, Snider and Maxwell were dragging on the AVG.
  • ERA: Stinson and Venters were brought aboard to assist. Westbrook and Volquez have both pitched their last games in the regular season, as has Peralta and Greinke, so they can’t help. (Westbrook and Volquez can help by not pitching while on the active roster).
  • Tulowitzki isn’t coming back. He went on the DL back in May. Thanks a lot – you owe me $31.
  • Meanwhile, the Misogynistic Padres also made six pickups (we were the only two teams to make FAAB bids). His were for RBI, SB, AVG, and potentially Saves: OF Alex Presley, C Jason Castro, RP Santiago Casilla (former 2012 RoadRunner), RP Philippe Aumont, RP Jared Hughes, and RP Craig Stammen.

Roster Moves – Week 19 – July 31st, 2012

(no actual roster moves)


  • July 27th – SP Zack Greinke was traded from Milwaukee Brewers to the Los Angeles Angels for SS Jean Segura and two other minor leaguers
  • July 29th – 3B Chris Johnson was traded from the Houston Astros to the Arizona Diamondbacks for 3B Bobby Borchering and CM/OF Mark Krauss
  • July 30th – RP Brad Lincoln was traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Toronto Blue Jays for OF Travis Snider
  • July 31st – OF Hunter Pence was traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the San Francisco Giants for former 2012 RoadRunner OF Nate Schierholtz, C Tommy Joseph, and a minor leaguer.
  • With the spectacular flame-out of Francisco Cordero with the Astros, the RoadRunners attempted to re-acquire previously-released RP Wilton Lopez. He was successfully acquired by Shoeless Jews for a $17 bid, while Get Off Kong! had bid $3, and the RoadRunners had bid $2.
