Got my 3B of the future with Gregory Crabtree. Several nice players fell farther than I would have expected even though the draft was kind of weak overall.

West Side had an excellent draft. There were not many super high-end players in this draft, but it was deep and had a lot of slugging players. That worked out very well for us with several mid-first and second round picks.

#17, C Andrew Montano: He won't walk much, or stick at catcher, but the 78 and 85 potentials for BA and SL should translate into a very solid hitter.

#18, C Andrew McDonald: He is likely our future catcher and profiles as a masher. A 90 CN and 93 SL potential should mean he will hit a LOT of home runs.

#39, LF Arnold Booker: Booker does not fit my 'can't buy alcohol' mold, but he should be ready to play next year. 96 DI and 98 CN ratings should offset a truly awful 9 SL. Long term, I am hopeful that he will be a poor man's Dwight Cheek.

#47, CF Richard Hoey: West Side got a steal here. Hoey has an 86 DI to go with BA and SL ratings in the high 60's. His real value lies in a 92 RA potential in CF though. Assuming he develops, Hoey should be a pillar in West Side's outfield for years to come.

#62, P Rodney Boyer: I am surprised Boyer fell this far. He profiles as a back-end starter or relief pitcher, but 80 FI and 78 CO potentials make him an appealing ground baller.

I had them ranked 8, 9, 16, 17 and 30, so across the board I feel as though I got good value. All but Booker are either 17 or 18. With how the Boxer Robber's are playing this year, we should be seeing lots of opportunity to acquire some foundational players. This group should provide a great start to our rebuild though!

Out of curiosity, how did his SY turn out? It looked low, and I'm sure that caused some hesitation, but he was also misscouted, as I was seeing 38/30. Very pretty FI, though.

I always enjoy hearing where other owners rank players as it shows the differences in what people value or are currently targeting.

Super stoked about my draft class, got my #2, #9, #16, and #26 ranked players (I was targeting pitching pretty hard, for the 2nd season in a row). Got 3 potential SPs and a good defensive backup

#7 Adan Cedillo - 21 - I would have preferred Winston, but I knew it was a pipe dream for him to fall to #7. Cedillo was my more reasonable target, so I'm pleased to see him fall. Should be excellent in my defense. Should be my #1 starter.

#26 Matthew Clark - 23 - (older brother to my 1st last season Frederick Clark? :lol: ) Mid 70's FI, 90's SY, upper 90's EN: definite starter material, but will probably need a few flips to reach potentials.

#46 Ricky McNeil - 19 - Huge surprise of the draft. I expected to get a bullpen guy here or maybe a more fringy prospect. McNeil's low CO certainly gave me pause, but he turned out to be a huge misscout. His FI and CO were both more than 10 pts higher than I'd seen in the draft list. So mid 70's FI, mid 40's CO, and 90's SY with upper 90's EN makes him a lower CO, younger version of Clark. Totally didn't see that kind of return coming out of the late 2nd round.

#49 Kevin Olsen - 20 - No bat to speak of, but hovering around 70 across the defensive ratings should make him a cheap, but solid defensive bench player

Went into the draft really just 2 starters short of a finished rebuild, so very pleased to pull 3. Gives me options if one doesn't pan out like I expect. I've got quite a few guys coming up next season, but it could be a couple season before the team really takes off, as 3/5 of the rotation won't be ready yet. Gives me another draft or two to maybe upgrade a few of my players

Ended up at 49. His stats where heading the right way in categories so I was hoping they all went up and they did.

You had a good draft I was concerned that Cedillo would fall out of the 90s on most his stats. You grabbed a entire staple of pitchers in this draft

Very nice! I've had guys like that where 38/30 turns into a 38 and I've seen them jump higher like Wright and McNeil.

Yeah, his FI actually stuck right at 90. A high 80's would certainly still do well in my defense, especially with his SY. I just wish he had a touch more EN, but I've had worse in a rotation and been fine.

Peoria is on pace for a 28-132 record with their 20-95 (.174) record at the moment. The current worst record in history is 34-126 and only 7 teams have ever had less than 40 wins in a season. He would need to go 15-30 (.333) the rest of the way to avoid being the worst and 14-31 (.311) to only tie the previous record. Yikes.

Vegas has a +3 better run differential than Bloomington and is 15.5 games behind them in the standings. My season in a nutshell. :roll:

Salary adjustments coming soon.

Those of you who get the CSFBL letter may have seen this already. They will.be tweaking salaries, but stressed that this is in no way a change to the overall salary structure.

Here is the readers digest version for those of you who don't like to read.

Top flight starters will make more.

High range players at SS, 2B and CF will make more.

Older players will make less as their skills drop off.

Younger players still in the minors will make less.

Bullpen and bench players will make less.

Straight up not good players will make a lot less.

Of course they announce this as I'm finishing my build focused on MIF and CF Defense and SP....The test league showed a 56.3% increase in salary for SS and 49.7% increase for 2B....ouch....Here's hoping the reduction in salary for bulpen and bench players offsets it enough...

23 games left in the season and every team in Dean has at least a +25 run differential. That's crazy.

You want to see something crazy look at Michael Smith's record this year at 39 years young.

I had been refraining from tempting the forum jinx on my division rival ;) , but yes he's nuts.

On a similar note, what's everyone's GOAT rotation? At this point it's difficult to deny Smith as the #1 and honestly 1-4 is pretty set, though you could re-arrange the order.

1. Smith
2. Chris Olsen (LVA)
3. Trevor Parrott (BLM)
4. Gerald Torbert (BST)

That 5th spot is hard to pick though.

You be got guys like Clyde Anderson (Zimbabwe), William Powell (LVA) and Larry Bigby (NYRP/CAR) who pitched well into their 40's and really racked up counting stats.

You've also got guys like Joseph Gower (BST), Quilan Mar (KAT), and Frank Rodriguez (ESPR, BST) who were more dominant, but didn't log as many innings or fell off earlier. Rodriguez in particular was probably robbed of 50-100 wins due to playing for an inattentive owner later in his career and on bad teams.

Well Peoria went on a nice run of 11-25 (.306) to give themselves a chance to avoid the worst record. With 9 games left, they need to win 4 of 9 to avoid the worst, 3 of 9 to tie it. Fortunately for them, they are done with Windy City, but still have 2 more with 2nd place NEST, 3 with 3rd place Carolina, and 4 with 5th place River City.
