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.

Jim Hendry was pretty good too.

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.

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.
