#PackADailyCircus - Updates and Bustin Wax

Good evening, everyone! The Managers/Players list online is now updated with the results from the last draft. I will be putting together this week's draft and sending that out to managers before the weekend is up. That will include all free agents this week plus today.

Updated Manager/Player list:

I've had a couple questions about "Managerial Roles." Here is my response:

As a team manager, you can do anything you want to your team, except add players not revealed through breaks (unless I hold special drafts allowing for such). Other than that, you can drop me an email with the lineup you want, drop players you don't want (giving up any of their cards back into free agency, should you have any), work out trades between you and another manager, etc. These are YOUR teams. You can change the name of the team, change the color, etc. Have fun!

If you have other questions, definitely ask!

I have a question: would it be easier/better/helpful to have a "TRADING BLOCK" page for? Managers could send me players they want to get rid of or players they want from another team. I would post those on the "OOTP Trading Block" page. Then, you could work out the trades yourselves or work out the trades in the page (I think I can set pages to allow for comments. If not, I know a workaround).

Let me know your thoughts!

Now, let's bust wax!

The first pack today covers yesterday's pack (seem to get a day off more and more!). This one is 2008 Upper Deck Goudey:

James Loney - Dodgers - Free Agent
Nick Swisher - White Sox - GoBlues (Wahoo!!)
Vince Coleman - Cardinals - Maddings (Wahoo!!)
Gary Sheffield - Tigers - Chonks (Wahoo!!)
Adrian Gonzalez - Padres - GCRLs (Wahoo!!)
Ken Griffey Jr - Reds - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!!)
Randy Johnson - Diamondbacks - GoBlues (Wahoo!!)
Hank Blalock - Rangers - Free Agent

Not a bad group of players at all. Pretty cool that we started off with a free agent and ended with one. Congrats to each manager adding cards to your stacks - GoBlues snagged the first hit and the last hit from pack!

It is Super-Sized Saturday, so let's see what I can wrangle up.  Okay, I have two (2) rack packs of 2006 Topps Series 2. So, that is 36 cards plus 6 "vintage cards" (we'll see what that means).

Brian Fuentes - Rockies - Free Agent
Joe Nathan - Twins - Free Agent
Kevin Millwood - Rangers - Free Agent
Jose B Reyes/Kaz Matsui Mets Middle Men - Mets - Kazis (Wahoo!!)/Free Agent
Cliff Lee - Indians (Wahoo!) - Tribecards (Wahoo!!)
Scott Podsednik - White Sox - Thorzuls (Wahoo!!)
David DeJesus - Royals - JoshDs (Wahoo!!)
Scott Hatteberg - Reds - Free Agent
Dan Uggla (RC!) - Marlins - Quarrys (Wahoo!!)
Jose Barfield - Padres - Free Agent
William Patterson - US Constitution - Free Agent
Dave LaPoint - Pirates '90 Topps - RJBreezes (Wahoo!!)
Paul Kilgus - Rangers '90 Topps - Free Agent
Duane Ward - Blue Jays '88 Topps - Free Agent
Yadier Molina - Cardinals - Erins (Wahoo!!)
Ozzie Guillen - White Sox - BackstopCards (Wahoo!!)
Jeromy Burnitz - Pirates - Free Agent

Angel Berroa - Royals - Free Agent
Nate Bump - Marlins - Free Agent

Eric Milton - Reds - Free Agent
Ryan Wagner - Reds - Free Agent
Derrek Lee - Cubs - Pedersejs (Wahoo!!)
Brian Bannister - Mets - Free Agent
Ken Griffey Jr - Reds - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!!)
Doug Mirabelli - Padres - Free Agent
Mickey Mantle HR96 - Yankees - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Darryl Hamilton - Brewers '90 Topps - Free Ahent
Jim Abbott - Angels '90 Topps Draft Pick - GoBlues (Wahoo!!)
Greg Cadaret - A's '88 Topps - Free Agent
Ray Durham - Giants - Free Agent

Paul Byrd - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent
Reds Team Card - Reds
Omar Vizquel - Giants - GoBlues (Wahoo!!)
Chad Cordero - Nationals - Free Agent
Carl Pavano - Yankees - Free Agent

Quite a few hits in there! We even busted two Indians players and I own one of them!! Wahoo! Congrats to everyone that got cards! GoBlues racked up today for sure. NachosGrande snagged a couple Griffeys and has the potential to grab the multiplayer card unless ScottCrawford wins the coin toss at the end of the season for that one.
