    Can we rename Zachary Morris to Zachary "Preppie" Morris? Just because.

    Tough call here. Do I go with the 18-year-old INF or the SHB 11/9/6 C who is also the 2nd-best SP in the draft?

    Yeah, you're gonna have to swap him before long though. He has WAY too much power!

    The only reason I hesitate is because HOL is where C prospects go to die.

    But if he could be switched to a P prospect should he die....

    Too many positives about him to pass.

    I agree,i think he is the next mountain man jerry brantley,i have always wanted to try a actual two way player, starts every 5 games then plays the field,hes the best prospect for that since callum jones,im not convinced buchanan will live up to his potential,especially with the ss heavy draft last year,but i would be sick if he did an i passed so i chose jarred "chosen one" buchanan

    Guess I better figure out from C how to maximize him via 7-day lineups

    I really only tried that with Brantley one season. Could ask Bing or Crow possibly though.

    (just had a really huge sense of deja vu posting this)

    I don't think I've ever seen a 2-way All Star caliber performance in this game.

    Lonnie Osborne has had some success on both sides, but I don't think he's "done it all" in the same season.



    He had a fun season in '57, starting 57 games in the OF and serving as a valuable reliever and spot starter.

    I thought prospects of all types went to HOL to die... didn't realize it was just catchers...

    Mountain Man was an AS for us in '54, posting a 1.21 ERA in 81.7 IP. He was limited to 43 games in the field though and just 151 AB (with a .916 OPS). The year prior he had 390 AB, but only 15 games in relief (1.39 ERA in 32.3 IP).

    I might have kept slotting him more at C but he seemed too valuable in the pen.

    Heh, whoops. I de-linked Chitown the user from Chitown the team...which gave me nothing to log in as for OTTO purposes. I'll pick for them later this evening.

    The pitching takes so much out of their position stamina that its really hard to pull off two way. New version migt be different though.
