I'm really mulling a Dunn drop. But I don't want to burn the transaction in case of devastating injuries. Here's to hoping he bounces back.

I'm just impressed you're in second with Dunn as your #1.

You dropped Travis Snider in the first half in favor of Lance Berkman; so your first request is null and void; leaving you with an available transaction to make.

McCutchen-for-Davis has been approved.


Awesome, a bonus/unexpected transaction. In that case...

Drop Dunn
Add Bautista

Apparently having Dunn is the key to success. I still have him on my roster too.

Same here. I had a bigger ball-and-chain to get rid of.

There are just under 12 hours left in the All Star Break and 12 hours left for those of you who want to change your Wild Card selection.

If I don't hear about a change by 11:59:59 PM CST, you lose your opportunity and will keep your original choice for your Wild Card player from the first half.

Thank you,
HR Derby Management

Nice. I went with Rollins, hoping he'd have a bounceback year playing for a new contract. Not a bad first half, but I'm ripping off your pick instead.

I flipped a coin to decide between Freeman and Espinosa. I hope it chose well.

I stuck with Alex Gordon as my WC hoping some of his doubles turn into dingers.

For those of us who just switched to Jose Bautista at the break... is everyone okay, or did we all experience some uncontrolled twitching at the news of him twisting his ankle? :banghead:
