Brisbee: MLB Power Rankings: Orioles On Top, Giants At Bottom

13. Los Angeles Angels/Kansas City Royals
Tony Reagins: Look, I gotta be honest with you, the Vernon Wells trade didn’t work out like we had hoped. Now Bourjos is hurt ... it’s a mess. What are you looking to get in return for Francoeur and Melky?

Dayton Moore: Not for sale!

Tony Reagins: Oh, come on. Just one of them. We have prospects. There’s this 20-year-old kid who was just up. Fast as the wind. Name is Mike Tr ...

Dayton Moore: Not for sale! Nosiree! Can’t do it! They’re really, really good!

Tony Reagins: I wasn’t saying our prospects for both of those guys. What about just one of them, you pick which one?

Dayton Moore: Not for sale! Can’t do it!

Tony Reagins: Look, anything you want! Look over the rosters! Anything!

Dayton Moore: Not for sale! Well, unless you have a catcher to trade. Jeff Mathis? What about Jeff Mathis?

Tony Reagins: Now you’re just mocking me. Forget it. I thought we could work something out, and you’re being an ass.

Dayton Moore: Next time don’t call up and ask for my best players, and I won’t ask for yours!

I was just about to submit this one myself. Funny as hell.

It was either that or the Nationals one.

The last three are fantastic.

Someone should turn this into a movie. I'm pretty sure it would be better than "Moneyball".

I also enjoyed this immensely.

Braves/Astros made me LOL.

This was quite funny.

Jim Hendry: Hey, Brian? Are you looking for a catcher? Geovany Soto, maybe.

Brian Sabean: Well, uh, I hadn't thought about ...

Jim Hendry: Well, sorry! We're not dealing him.

Hangs up. Picks up the phone. Dials.

Neal Huntington: Hello?

Jim Hendry: Interested in Carlos Pena?

Neal Huntington: Yes, actually. I was ...

Jim Hendry: Oh, sorry! We're not trading him.

Hangs up. Picks up the phone. Dials.

Brian Cashman: Hello?

Jim Hendry: Brian, it's Jim from the Cubs. Say, would you have any interest in Jeff Baker?

Brian Cashman: Who in the hell is Jeff Baker?

Jim Hendry: Oh, sorry! He's off the market.

Hangs up. Picks up the phone. Dials.

Chris Antonetti: Antonetti here.

Jim Hendry: Say, Chris, would you want Kosuke Fukudome?

Chris Antonetti: No. Not unless you're willing to eat millions of dollars.

Jim Hendry: Okey dokey!


I believe Jim Hendry plays in my roto league under the name of Troy.
