    • In a difficult choice between two "B" grades left, the Skipjacks select RP/SP Barry Lersch. Three straight seasons of a 1.20 WHIP or lower. Unfortunately he, like others in this draft, has no resign value.

        Great 1971 as a starter. ERA is above league average but his WHIP for that season is 1.180. A victim of either a hitter's park or poor players on the defensive end. Nice find.

        Buppers, PLEASE read the PMs I sent and get back to me, and await my response before making your pick. Could be a big deal in the works for the Badgers.

          I didn't mean do the entire draft that way, although I'm sure my post indicated that was my intent. What I meant was open it up like we've been doing for one week prior to rookie draft night, finish the first two rounds on draft night, then go on the eight hour clock. Alternatively, we could simply use the eight hour clock from the beginning. However, that might also be too long. Assuming 60 picks at 3 per day, even that would take 20 days (although things go quick at the beginning and end; it's the middle picks that seem to bog down).

          BTW, nice pick JW. Lersch was high on my list, due to the low WHIP. But his K/BB ratio isn't too terrible for a couple of years, either. A good pickup, IMHO.

          • --This draft is not going to go 5 rounds, at least not with everyone still participating. Even before expansion alot of owners passed after the third and most after the fourth. I'll be surprised if there is anybody I have any interest in left in the 4th and shocked if that is true in the 5th. And even if the interest is there the draft will conclude at whatever point we are at when its time for the free agent auction to start on the 13th.
            --If you're interested in anybody left on the board at that point you'll have to bid on them. Presumably you could have them for minimum wage if they are unpicked at that point. Their future value would be lost to you though, since anyone signed for less than 5M has a 3 year maxiumum contract.

                  He'll be up soon and able to read my trade proposal. There's a big deal in the works and I'm going to make sure I walk away with his draft pick. It's not all for naught.


                  K. Big trade happened.

                  The Brawlers send Sockeye Sandy Alomar, Pete Mikkelsen and Ted Uhleander to the Badgers along with their 3rd, 4th and 5th round picks in '69 and their 3rd round pick in '70. In return, the Brawlers receive the Badgers' second round pick in '69. Badgers to confirm.

                          I protest that trade! I don't want to be sent to the Badgers. I wish to remain the Angels owner!!!
