I know there's a forum for this, but it's Ghost town

Great bio of all the players in the game here

I don;t know about you guys, but I'm very excited for this game.

I'm most excited to see Wright and Upton play, who both are probably going to be fantasy contributors soon

does this make sense though

Val Majewski (Orioles) Outfield
Majewski, a third-round pick in 2002, entered this season with a career .294 batting average and a .517 slugging percentage. With a good eye at the plate, he had struck out only nine more times (61) than he had walked (51).

Pretty good at math but I must be missing something

a few more to watch for fantasy reasons are Reed, Morneau, and Kubel. Kubel as he is our best prospect less Morneau and might be prime Kris Benson or Bautista trade bait and would then have a spot to play. ANd if you think Ford is good, this guy is twice as good!

Can't wait to see Wright play. It's cool that a bunch of the guys talked about in Moneyball during the draft section are in this game.

Took the words right out of my mouth ;-D I'm mad at myself that I didn't get to see him at AA during the year since I go to school up in Binghamton but he should be great in the Futures game. Oh well, the way things are going, I will be able to just watch him in Flushing by the end of the season :-D

I'm sure its been thrown around before but what happens to Overbay when Fielder gets the call up. Overbay's proven he's worthy of a spot.

Bye Bye Troy Glaus....your replacement is healthier, stronger perhaps, younger, and doesn't seem like such a prima donna that you are.

Learn a new position perhaps? Can't really put Fielder anywhere else since he isn't exactly the most mobile athlete on the field even though I heard he does steal the occasional bag :-D

Not sure he has became a very popular playing in MIL. I would guess they either try to make him into a RFer or trade him. Both are hard choices as he looks like a very solid player.

Yeah Glaus is history with Dallas. I say in 2001 they picked Kotchmen, Dallas, and Mathis all in a row in round 1-3. Wow great drafting.
