OTBA News: Draft Pool Revealed
Saturday, March 18th, 2079
The biggest anxiety for 2079 new young players is getting drafted. For the young man with something to prove, simple entrance into the draft does not guarantee a big league contract. Some will suffer the excruciating torment of having to stand by as their competitors get picked before them, hoping that they get a slim chance to prove their skills anywhere. At any rate, teams now have 75 days to scout the draft pool before the draft is held.

The Transactions page also gets a new section dedicated to the draft pool, which will be available for 75 days prior to the draft.

The top players available (in no particular order) seem to be:
1. Cliff Thornton, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
2. Ken Lee, 21 year-old RHP out of college.
3. Steven Lewis, 18 year-old CF out of high-school.
4. Ashton Miller, 21 year-old CF out of college.
5. Iván Rodríguez, 21 year-old CF out of college.
6. Lynn Hall, 21 year-old SS out of college.
7. Phil Carlson, 21 year-old CF out of college.
8. Juan Silva, 22 year-old LHP out of college.
9. Alfredo Hernández, 18 year-old RHP out of high-school.
10. Jud West, 21 year-old RHP out of college.

You can find the draft pool in the league transactions screen (league menu).
Kornholes Anderson Down with Injury
Tuesday, March 14th, 2079
When Jeff Anderson was hurt against the Washington Potomacs, the DeKalb Kornholes were hopeful that the injury was not serious. However, it proved to be more severe than first thought. The 42-year-old closer suffered a ruptured finger tendon throwing a pitch in yesterday's game. Team doctors told BNN today that Anderson would miss 3-4 months of the season.
League Suspends Washington RF Hernández
Monday, March 13th, 2079
The Washington Potomacs were not very happy with the home plate umpire in today's loss to Toronto at Spring Ballpark. One in particular -- Paco Hernández. Upon being called out on strikes, the Potomacs right fielder gave the ump quite an earful. For that, the man in blue gave him the thumb and sent him to an early shower.

But the disgruntled Hernández lingered on the field for another five minutes, berating the umpire. Finally his manager got him off the field and into the clubhouse.

But it got worse after the game, when Hernández told reporters, "He was blind today. They played 'Three Blind Mice' for him. If he doesn't know the words to the song, I'm sure we can get it in Braille, so he can follow along."

For his escapades and after-the-game oration, the league office suspended Hernández for 3 games.
