I got a trade vetoed by the trade committee.

I traded Bret Baty for two prospects, Jefferson Rojas and Haydn McGeary.  I was selling low on Baty, and buying a couple of prospects that I thought would breakout this year.  The trade was vetoed, and I’m totally fine with it.  I fully expected to have some minor hiccups like this along the way and that’s why there’s a trade committee in the first place.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

I was a history major in college.  This was a terribly poor decision.  I realized after my first year in history/secondary education that I did not really enjoy history.  I was gonna be a coach.  My only A’s in college were coaching classes.  Why did I think that history was interesting?  Who would ever read stuff like that just for the fun of it?

As I’ve grown older, I realized that there is some history that I enjoy.  I just don’t enjoy ALL of it.   It’s all good, I was only a Social Studies teacher for two years before I took a different type of position.  The lesson is to never listen to your parents, I guess.

For a time, I felt the same about dynasty baseball leagues.
