Dang! I guess I should have played it safe with my pitchers and gambled with my hitters!

23 rostered in the first round = I'm doomed

Hmm no trades.  DiMaggio, Gehrig, Musial, Teddy Williams. Not bad. Too many starters too.  Interesting problems.

wow, I got the most popular player in SIM in Bob Milacki ! I almost took him out because I thought, surely someone else would also take him.  He is my game 1 starter in the playoffs.

Save him for Game 7!

2nd roster sent.

That goes for me too.

Oh, one last thing about round one that I meant to mention. For the most part, the names that come up in this league are least familiar to me. I may not know much about the player but the name at least rings a bell. However, sinfonian make me do a double take when he submitted Yo-yo Davalillo. Yo-yo?? This demanded an immediate investigation.

Venezuela native Pompeyo Antonio (Romero) Davalillo played for the original Senators in 1953. The whole of his MLB career consisted of 63 PA between August 1st and the 23rd. Despite a respectable .293 AVG, he put up a dreadful OPS+ of 69. And, yes, he was the older brother of Vic. Yo-yo passed away this February at the age of 84.

As I thought about Yo-yo, I realized I had seen the nickname before. Anthem, written by William (Sugar) Wallace, is a poem (far better that any I've ever written, btw) consisting entirely of baseball nicknames. It includes Mr. Davalillo. If you've never read it, I highly recommend it.

Thanks to sinfonian for increasing my knowledge of baseball history.

Any time. On a related note, I have Vic in another theme league that is starting shortly. Had no idea he was related to Yo-yo. Nice research, Don!

Ok ONE more time with the hitting pitcher strategy....Bob Caruthers, Catfish Hunter, Jesse Tannehill.  Been picking minus singles parks and not doing well. Got a +2 park to work with now.

Finally caught up on sitemails. Only elleryq and gbakker are still out, plus there are a couple needed corrections that I've just notified the owners about.

Hope it works out for you.  I'll be watching with interest.  I'm surprised you didn't include Bucky Walters on your list.

Gbakker is in. Reminder sent to elleryq.
5/13/2013 11:54 PM
