    I note the following errors in the listings above based on my data and on TIDP:

    Badgers #3: to Angels on to Dust Bunnies
    Thunder #4: To Dust Bunnies on to Angels
    Legends #4: to Dust Bunnies on to Lumberjacks

      In the first pick of the 1985 Rookie Draft, the Dust Bunnies select Teddy Higuera.

        --He was one of three guys I was looking at for 2nd pick. I'll decide between the other two shortly.


        • #5
          --After much deliberation the Knights select CF Lenny Dykstra. Had some serious character issues with both him and the better hitter I'm passing on, but Dykstra's speed, defense and earlier impact get the nod.


          • #6
            I agree with character issues. In the VAMBA League I have Reds. We get to keep 1 rookie each year. I traded away rights to Pete Rose, not so much because of gambling, more for personal contact when he was with Phillies.
            BTW, I inherited team from Scott.

            There are 10 kinds of people. Those who get binary and those who don't.


            • #7
              I have 3 (#13, #14 and #20) of the first 20 picks in this draft. I would like to move 1 or 2 of these for a player that can help me in 1985 or for future picks.

                --Where do you need help? The Knights have an outstanding closer (Goose Gossage), solid 2b/3B (Ken Oberkfell) and a number of useful role players that might round out a deal. Any contract expiring after this year (or player who isn't usefull past this year) is VERY available.


                • #9
                  The Legends and Jaxx would both consider deals, depending on your needs Dan.

                    Had to decide between two guys. Went with this one as, surprisingly (to me at least), he wouldn't make a bad 80s franchise player. The Legends may need that if we draft high over the next four years. BTW, it was rather distasteful to draft him based on what eventually transpired. With the number 3 pick, the Legends take:


                    JOSE CANSECO, OUTFIELD/DH

                      At some point I'm going to have to stop taking outfielders because there just isn't enough room, but that point is not now. The Gold Sox select Mike Greenwell.

                        Would anyone be so kind as to take our 4th round pick (59th overall) off our hands? It's the only pick we own and I haven't researched this year draft and really don't wish to put in the time and effort for just a mid 4th round pick. Will trade it for a 4th round pick in the 1986 draft. Any takers?

                          --The Knights send LF Jim Rice to the Boys for the 13th overall pick in this draft. Dan will confirm.

                              With the 5th selection in the 1985 first year player draft the Milwaukee Iron select:
                              1B-Andres Galarraga

                              Was hoping to see Greenwell or Dykstra still here but happy to get The Big Cat!
