Flash (Trenchcoat) Reimold signed with The Toledo Christian Beavers for a 4.0 Mil bonus. Flash just out of JC has a reputation of debauchery and depravity. In school he was arrested several times for late night skinny dipping in the Deans water fountain and Streaking. The Christian Beavers are known for there clean cut image and he may not fit in. Bkevin will probably put the fear of god in this youngster and it's probably all he needs. If not bkevin can always trade him to Vacouver, the capital of Debauchery and Depravety. He has great makup and health so he should reach his projections in 3-4 years . And what projections they are . Great Control ,RH Splits ,Velocity,Ground ball ratio,and 3 pitches in the 80's. He will be a good one indeed if he can keep his clothes on. The only concern is a low durability. Might tire easily towards the end of season stretch run. Great pick!!!
Carlos (E-S-T-R-A-D-A ) Estrada signed for 3.91 mil and was sent to rookie ball. Remember this name ESTRADA ,because he will be tearing up the league in about 3-4 years . This cat out of Rhode Island will anchor the Manatees CF/2b corps. He can do it all Field ,Hit for power and average ,run the bases with speed and skill. With his high durability and health he will play almost every game. Great pick Sand!!!
Marty Allen signed for a Spring Training invite and 3.7 million. This kid will be a home run derby participant in the future . Allen has 100 contact with 90+ power and a hitting eye almost in the 80's. Couple that with decent splits and walahh!!! Super Slugger. With his good makeup , excellent health and durability he will reach his projections. His defensive numbers are low so he will have to play LF/1b in the Majors. Still its a Great Pick!!
Bert(Big Mac) McKnight signed a minor league contract for 3.72 million. He was a nightly fixture at the Coamo Mcdonalds and virtually lived off their sandwichs . That is how he gained his nickname "Big Mac". This lefty will be serving up a nasty sinker with a good fastball with great LH splits and Control. Many batters will hear Mcknights patented yell as they head back to the dugout. "You want fries with that" ?? Great pick
Patsy (Hitwoman) Hartman comes from the frozen wasteland of Colstrip Montana. Patsy is the first trans gender player to ever be drafted in Wrigleyville. Born as a female he underwent his operation 2 years ago and decided to keep his god given name. So ardthomp , a progressive new owner, is willing to take a chance on Patsy. The Indians signed him for a 3.63 million bonus and sent him straight .......i mean down to Rookie ball........ er...i mean Rookie League. Hartman will hit the cover off the ball (then sew them back on) .And with his speed and good defensive numbers he should be an everyday short stop. His biggest problem is his low health and makeup (He likes the el natural look) numbers. this will make it a difficult time reaching his projections. Great Pick!!!!
Phillip Maloney is the first college player taken and he signed for 3.54 mil. The Dairy Heirs picked this kid who is a Cold Cut Heir from the famous Maloney Bologne Corp. Ah they were meant for each other, like a tall glass of Milk and a Bologne Sandwich . Phillip has a 80's contact ,Power and Eye with good splits so he will hit the stuffing out of the ball. He will not be the best 2nd baseman defensivly but he will hold his own. With great health and makeup he will probably reach his projections. Great Pick !!
Louis (oo oo That Smell) Rekar is fresh out of college and signed for a bonus of 3.44 mil. Already 21 you could see this Knuckleballer in the Majors soon. Rekar has great control , good splits and a nasty knuckleball. Also great health and makeup he will reach his potential. But with low stamina he may be a career long releiver. Great pick
Tempermental R.A. French finally deceided to sign with the Fargo Prairie Dogs for 3.35 mil. The skinny Texan released a statement saying " I aint no Dog so i'm axin for someone to trade for me". I really dont think aaronwayne should trade this fine Short Stop even if he is difficult. With his great defensive projections he will be a gold glove winner Guaranteed. And the primadona will hit ,with splits in the 80's and the rest in the 60's. Frenchy also has good speed and baserunning skills . He has no weakness that I can see. Great pick!! But if you tire of his shenanagans call Vancouver we'll make a deal!! Wink Wink.
JC player Ross Griffin signed with the Hip waders for 3.25 mil. Lagzilla picked up a Monster of a player. He is one of the best defensive players in this draft and he can hit also. His only weakness is that he's a little slow in the speed dept but i'm nitpicking . One of my favorite picks!!
Freddy Stahoviak signed with the Chimps for 3.16 mil. This monkey is another defensive phenom with great speed. He'll be earning a ton of bananas for his + playes and timly hitting. His weakness is a low contact rating but his great RH split may cancel that out. Nice Pick!!
Russell (Joan) Baez signed a 3.16 million contract with the Santurse Crabbers. Baez has great defensive skills so he will platoon between CF and 2nd base. He won't hit for power but will hit above .300 consistantly . Add his good speed and baserunning skills and you have a classic leadoff hitter. Great pick!!
It makes total sense that the Salmonbellies would pick a Guy Named Gill. Laffey signed for a 2.97 milion bonus and will be swimming in the Rookie League. Gill is only the third pitcher in a weak pitching draft. Already 21 years old he will be pitching in the Majors in a couple of years . He has great stamina ,splits and a fastball . His control is respectable but his 2nd and 3rd pitches are only in the 60's. If he has a decent pitch calling catcher he can be a good one . But he's guaranteed to be a solid pitch anyways .Nice pick for this draft!!
Memphis did their homework and grabbed this good pitcher and signed him for a 2.88 mil. His over all numbers aren't great but thats mileading. This guy will be a good one . Oliver has great Stamina and Control . He has good splits and three nice pitches. Tim has good health and makeup so he should reach his projections but his low durability is his only weakness. This pick is a great example that if you do your homework. You can find some good players in the 70's overall. Nice pick!!
Ron Clayton signed with the Tampa Bay Stars for a draft high 4.37 Mil. Even though jmas got held up for alot of Clams . This kid will be a good pitcher . Clayton has great Control ,RH split ,Velocity ,Ground ball Ratio, smoking Fastball ,and a good slider. Add nice makeup and health and you have a solid ML pitcher in a poor pitching draft. Great pick at 14!!!
Mo (Gary) Coleman was picked by the Tobacco Farmers and he signed for 2.69 mil. Coleman Is a decent hitter with Power and Speed . He has good Contact and Hitting Eye but his low splits may hinder him a tad. Defensively he will be good, but his low glove rating may make him vunerable to errors. His makeup and paitence numbers are high but his low health may limit his development. Good pick !!
The Turkey's signed Stu Elder for a 2.6 mil bonus. I had this cat as my #2 pick and jared stole this great player right before my eyes. It's amazing this great looking player slipped so low. Elder has steller range with a great glove so he will be a wonderful CF/2b. With 100 speed , contact and baserunning in the 80's he will be a premier leadoff hitter(Ricky Henderson?) . Great pick jared!!! I'm jealous.
Benny (Anti-Virus) Norton was picked by me and signed for 2.5 mil. Norton will be a decent hitter with numbers in the 60's and 70's . And he won't be embarassed on the bases though i wish he had more speed. Defensively he'll never play 2nd base but will probably play LF/1b. With an overall in the 80's you would think he would be better?? Good Pick!!
