I was laughing while reading this list and my wife asked why. I showed her the list. The first words out of her mouth - "What's Lemon Party?" I did not explain.

LOL

Any bookies carrying prop bets for this one? What’s the over/under on #FreeRaider references? Anything on Amos swallowing innings?
Without spoiling too much, the following may or may not have been discussed:

*military strategy computer games
*obesity in the BBA
*playoff predictions
*academic standards of Asians vs Americans
*Lemon Party
*Mons Raider's financial impact on Madison
*Fireball shots
*trade deadline buzz
*if Magic: The Gathering isn't nerdy, is Pokemon Go?
*coronavirus impact in the Boise minor league system
*No-Star Team (worst players at each position thru half the season)
*HGH's head size
*Ron's deal with the devil for player development
*Indian burial grounds
*Don Smith's early retirement
*Whalers hockey and Connecticut casinos
*WAR, what is it good for?
*Sexy Porn Inc.
*North Dakota's booming population
*Amos Swallow's elbow and how to report a murder
*reverse-jinxing
*Does Bunty even bunt?
*switch hitters abandoning one side
*Kenny Loggins
*Mike's Internet speed (or lack thereof)

..plus a surprise guest appearance!
I will be so disappointed if I don't hear every one of these topics discussed. That's an incredible memory too if it's an accurate list. I keep imagining a live roundtable with a sidebar for each of these topics like one of those terrible sports talk shows.

Ha. We did talk about Raider a bit and also about Swallows. You need to be present to defend yourself. :grin:
Lol like defending myself would change anything. I'm fine with it though. I like the #FreeRaider meme. The Swallows thing was Atsumori Maeda getting wild. I have an organization pitch cap at 140, no idea how Amos convinced Maeda to keep him out on the mound, but I have some ideas how he did it.

You can damn sure use that as a checklist because each one was mentioned, if not discussed in some length.

Yes, Yay! Ted.


FWIW, I don't have any grand idea on which players will bump or won't as I'm drafting. But I do think I know generally how to arrange and manage my minor leagues in the best way to maximize positive development. I personally think that's a bigger deal than the PPT...I've dropped a bazillion PPT on players and can't say that it's obviously a big help--though maybe it staves off negative dev...dunno.

I've drafted several very good players, though--oddly, most of my top picks (#1-10 overall) have not been so good...but I've had many productive picks later in the draft/ Including Aaron Stone, who was an 8th rounder...and, of course, Valle, who was a 4th rounder.

Personality traits are usually what I target in lower rounds. That and individual pitch potentials.
