I’m in a Diamondmind sim league with Dayn Perry, Joe Dimino, Shredder, and a bunch of guys whose names you might know if you hang around Baseball Think Factory a lot. Last night I turned in my keeper list in the runup to this year’s draft. We’re allowed to keep ten players. I listed mine, and even though they are merely virtual, textual and statistical representations of real people, the guys I kept started a whisper campaign to the local media about how I simply don’t care about winning. Then the press saw that I didn’t keep the fake Jeter, and they really let me have it. Rough league.

  • Brian Borawski has the latest business of baseball roundup. How lame does Mark Cuban feel about the fact that a former agent cum executive can decide to buy the Padres seemingly overnight and make it happen while a billionaire who already owns a team in another sport can’t make it happen at all?
