View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Eduardo "The Alamo" Navarro projects to be a good 3rd baseman and will hit a high average. But his atrocious health rating makes him likley to die a quick death. The Stars need to wrap him in Bubble Wrap 24 hours a day. My scouts never saw this guy.


Esteban Nieves
San Diego
Age: 22B/T: R/R
Born: Carbondale, CO
Position(s): C/DH

The Salmonbellies picked up a very nice prospect.This future HRD contestant may be a DH at heart but he can Catch in a pinch.His age could keep him from reaching his full potential. But I wouldn't mind having him on my squad.He was ranked #14 on the Totems Draft Board.


Nate Brock
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Levelland, TX
Position(s): P (ClA)

The Peachfuzz likes Nate "Like a" Brock's Splits and Pitches. But his Control is close to the danger zone.With great Health and Make-up he should reach projections. I had him ranked #8 on my board.


Daniel Jefferies
Age: 20B/T: R/R
Born: Whitewright, TX
Position(s): P (ClA)

With pickin so late in the draft, I knew most of the best Starting Pitchers and Short Stops would be gone. So its usually prudent to go for the best of whats left.Like Relief Pitching or Big Hitters. I was happy that my #4 ranked player, Daniel "Your My Brother" Jeffries was still on the board. With 2 pitches projected at 93,88 and control of 92 he could be a reliable SetupA or Closer. His health and makeup give him a good chance of making those numbers.A 65 LH split seems to be his only weakness.Welcome My Brother!!


William Resop
Age: 22B/T: R/R
Born: Devils Lake, ND
Position(s): SS
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Like I said above most of the good SS are gone by now. And William Resop is a prime example. While his hittng projections are good . His defensive numbers are low for a Short stop. He will be a solid RF'er or average 3rd baseman. Its still a good pick at 21. I had him ranked at #17


Kevin Owens
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Philadelphia, PA
Position(s): P (SP3)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Kevin "Gary" Owens will make a solid #4 or #5 starting pitcher. With 3 good Pitches, great Control and Splits. This prospect is a steal at 22.Looks like ARomano is up to his old tricks by getting value in the draft. I had him "not scouted well enough".


Domingo Delgado
Age: 22B/T: R/R
Born: Windsor, NC
Position(s): 2B
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Not only does this prospect project to be  GG 2nd baseman . He could also be a decent CF'er. Domingo "Double D" Delgado has blazing speed and will hit RH pitching for a good batting average. But should sit on the bench against lefties. Should make the bigs in 1-2 years.Never saw this cat.


Robb Wyatt
Age: 21B/T: L/L
Born: Crestview, FL
Position(s): P (SP1)

Rugby picked up a pitching prospect with good Stamina Control and Splits.With 2 average ptches it will be hit or miss with this guy. No pun intended. May take him 2-3 years to reach projections.I had him ranked #13 on my board.


Paul Shibata
Tampa Bay
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Montevallo, AL
Position(s): LF/1B/DH
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Paul "Sluggo" Shibata will make Mr Bill scream Noooooooo!! This plate monster will not be a good defensive LF 'er but can hold his own at 1st base. With good health and Make-up he should reach his projections.He was Unknown to my scouting.


Kevin Loretta
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Eatonville, FL
Position(s): LF
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Kevin Loretta held up TC for an extra 2 million. This kid has good Power,Contact,Speed and Righty splits but he's blind as a bat. He played RF in school but will be a rangy LF/1st baseman in the bigs.Some good some bad, but a good pick at #26.Unknown on my draft board.




B.C. Alomar
Barking Moonbats
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Cameron, MO
Position(s): P (P)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


I'm sure the Moonbats were suprised to see this nice Closer/Setup guy on the board at 28. They snatched up B.C. Alomar like a Moonbat would. This guy is a great pick late in the draft and Sordie never gets cheated.I had him ranked #12 on my draft board.


Nicholas Lombardi
San Diego
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Oostburg, WI
Position(s): RF/1B/OF/DH
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


This is mdymond's second pick and this guy has the best range so far. But The Salmonbellies are cursed and this young man is already on the DL. When he gets to the bigs he will be one of the best defensive RF'er in the league and could even play a little CF. At the plate he may hit around 270-290. Hope he stays healthy.He was #19 on my board.


Bing Cepeda
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Harvest, AL
Position(s): 1B
View Hardball Dynasty Profile


Daddio is smart for going with the best available hitter late in the draft.Bing "Bang Bong" Cepeda is a pure DH.Great Power and Contact with a 97 Lefty hitting split. Couple that with a decent Righty Split with good Eye . Who cares about playing in the field with his hitting ability.But Madison plays in the NL so look for him to be traded to a AL club.My scouts missed this guy.




Michael Marshall
San Juan
Santurce Crabbers
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Covelo, CA
Position(s): P (SP1)

Michael "M+M" Marshall was suprised so many teams passed him up. So was I! He will be given the chance to prove the other 30 teams wrong in about 4 years.I think he will be solid Starting Pitcher but won't win many awards.Still a good late round pickup.I had him ranked #10 on my board.


Fred Bowen
San Francisco
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Loganville, GA
Position(s): P (SuA)

Like I said before. There are always plenty of very Good Bullpen pitchers. Still on the board  late in the 1st round.And Fred "Cross" Bowen has all the pitching projections to be a very good Setup or Closer.his 60 ish health rating may be a problem but a good gamble at the end of round 1.He was #9 on my draft board.
