    What is the deal with players-to-be-named-later?

    –In what circumstances do GMs use this?
    –Is it merely a trick to manipulate the 40 man roster?
    –Is it already narrowed down to 2 or 3 players?
    –Who has the final say–the giving or receiving team?

    etc. etc.

    PTBNL are not taken off of the 40 man roster. Usually one GM will give the other GM a list of 2 or 3 players to chose from (this list is already agreed upon). The other GM then will pick the one they want. Sometimes they release the name right away other times they may wait a week or two so that the receiving GM has time to analyze his needs. I think that’s how it goes.
    Anyone disagree?

    Anyone disagree?

    Yes. This is not at all how it works.

    With only two years left on his contract, if the Mariners can’t reach an agreement with their All-Star manager, will they look to deal him for a “Lou Piniella” type package?

    I have a ticket that I can’t use, and it’s too late to refund. I’ll give it away, free, if anyone is nearby and has time to get it and get downtown. I live in Kenmore (north end of Lake Washington), so email soon if you are interested.

    Is it possible to Webcast this in the future?

    Even just the audio for it would be great…

    We’ve answered that about 30000 times. No.

    Please stop asking.

    Twas awesome. I was almost expecting Jack to jump into the crowd like a mosh pit. We would have held him up. Somehow.

    Gaaaaah! Were you guys all sworn to secrecy? I’m sure it was fantastic, especially if Jack showed up. So jealous. I hope both USSM and LL have threads tomorrow about it. 🙂

    Jack was there. I got my picture with him and the rest of the crew!

    I’m sure we’ll have some sort of recap tomorrow.
