A little more thunder in Portland

After making many different moves this offseason and trying to get younger, Brisque made the biggest and possibly the best move ever in Portland's franchise's history.
Brisque was in a bidding war with many other teams over possibly the best International Free-Agent in Long Haul R Us, or any other world.
Brisque signed 18 year old Pedro Perez out of Matanzas, CU at 11:31 this morning. Perez plays RF and will most likely start off in Low A. Many scouts said Perez has good contact and batting eye, does not hit lefties so well and okay against righties, but his best rating is his power.
Many people have compared him to season one's International Free-Agent Alex Morales. The two both have great ratings, except that Alex is great against lefties and below average against righties. Since there are probably more righties in the world, I would have to say Perez could be much better than Morales and could possibly be the best hitter in the world in a few seasons.
Brisque signed Perez to a minor league contract with a signing bonus of $20 million.

Huntington Bullets are looking to do some Damage

After going 68-94 last season, the Huntington Bullets and jstnklly are looking to switch that record around. This team may have just bought an extra twenty wins. The Huntington Bullets have signed a total of 4 free agents this season. The Bullets spent around 36 million dollars on free agents this season! The Bullets upgraded their staff with big signing Earl Weston (730 million dollar contract) and Howard Malone. They also upgraded their hitting with gold glove 2B Otis Edmonds.
After signing a bunch of big name players, Huntington is looking to deal some future stud prospects for ML talent. When being asked in the news conference about free agents and upgrading the team, jstnklly replied, "Anyone looking to trade vets for prospects, send me an offer. The two SPs in High-A will take a lot to get, but I have many other options. Mostly looking for ML pitching." After looking into these two SPs, we discovered that the two pitchers were Albert Perez and Henry Burns. Henry Burns was last year's first overall pick. LHRUS is very surprised to see this young phenom is on the trade block. Perez was the second overall pick two years ago. Both of these guys are great pitchers.
Right now, trade talks are sturring between the Philadelphia Pirates and the Bullets. The Pirates were trying to dump some salary and also get a young player out of it to. While the Pirates were looking to do a small trade, the Bullets were looking to change their whole franchise in one click. The Bullets offered the Pirates, Perez and Burns for season elven rookie of the year Virgil Halama and pitching prospect Louie Perry. We have no idea if this trade could be done. The Portland Thunder may also give jstnklly a call later on in the week to discuss a possible trade.

Start of Season 13

I would like to welcome giants5611, adreid, steadydoses, scrodger, and brisque! This season Oklahoma City 89ers have the first overall pick in this year's draft. They also have the number six pick because last year's number five pick Brant Shaw did not sign. In other news, Cecil Magnante will test the Free Agent market this season. Should be an interesting season. Good luck everyone!
