Trading Market / Great young SP prospects on block
« on: November 17, 2009, 10:59:10 PM »
My Reds need some dynamite offense.

I've got two phenomenal 20-year-old SPs who are just about ready for the majors: Felipe Villareal & Ron Holloway.

Both players throw in the mid 90s, and they each have five pitches, which will insure a great transition to OOTPX. Holloway is the 14th-ranked pitching prospect in the NPBL. I only want to trade one of them, but I'm willing to enlarge the deal by including other players, and even picks.

These guys are very valuable, so I expect a healthy return. I'd like a young infielder with all five tools.

General Discussion / New forum Theme
« on: September 15, 2009, 07:46:24 PM »
We've modded this forum's "Theme" and spruced up the design a bit, especially using a new color combo.

Feedback welcome.

If you don't like the new theme (or just want to switch back-and-forth, to compare), you can go back to the old one by going to "Profile" on the menu above; then choose "Look and Layout Preferences" on the left-hand side of the screen; the first choice on that page is "Current Theme." Our new theme is called "NPBL," but you can click on the word (change) to the right, and select whatever Theme that you want. The old Theme that we were using before is called "theme1" and it's down towards the bottom.

General Discussion / Lower-level minors schedules
« on: September 03, 2009, 09:11:39 PM »
Recently we've discussed extending the schedule lengths of our Rookie and Summer (Short-season A) Leagues. (I couldn't find those posts, to link to them, or to respond at that place.)

I'm against expanding both of them, and giving them full-length schedules of their own.

I like the configuration and the theory of having two leagues which are only a "half-step" apart, and having them run in consecutive half-seasons. I just like the way it's set up now.

But, if we're going to give those lowest-level minors leagues full-season schedules, I'd much rather only have one league at that level. I don't think that we need three whole separate "A" or "rookie" leagues. That's too much infrastructure covering too little ground.

I'm for either keeping the two split-season "rookie" leagues; or only having one lowest-level rookie league, which would play a full-season schedule.

Rhode Island claims undrafted MR Clifford Walker, cuts SP Monte Montgomery (AA).

Chappy, please insert Walker as a Middle Reliever on my Rookie-level club.

Sorry to see Burns Montgomery go. Five years ago, he went 11-8 with a 3.10 era, and I had high hopes for the fireballer. But he had a fragile upper arm, and injuries nickel-and-dimed his mojo away. I sincerely hope something good happens to him, if he can stick around in the league, but it's not likely.
