#PackADailyCircus - 054 - Building up the draft pool

Yesterday's post was actually going to be a multi-pack post, thus the numbers that appeared in the title. That didn't happen, so I've fixed that one and have set this one to the correct number. I'm sure I'm the only that even pays attention to such details, but it's important to me that I explain things and that I keep things in as much of an order as I can - which isn't saying a lot, lest you think I am OCD about things - I am not. I leave that to my wife in our family. That's not a slam on her, it is just how we are oppositely wired.

As for the OOTP game, Raz got me to thinking, and so I am going to make sure that older players are edited such that their birthdays are around 1992 - I'm talking about players currently sitting at 50 or above. That should help keep them in the roster. We'll try it and see what happens. Why not, right?

In the meantime, I forgot to say what the contest actually was: viewers had to send an email to me with "PERFECTION" in the title and list the first Indians player to have a perfect game. It was supposed to be a trick question, but instead I tricked myself. The true answer to the way the question was asked is "Len Barker." I was looking for Addie Joss. But, the team wasn't called the Indians when he did it, thus I tricked myself. Josh answered with Len's name every day, or nearly every day if not. In fact, Josh was the only one to answer at all. So, THANK YOU, Josh, for watching my goofy updates. :-)  Actually, THANK YOU to anyone that watched, even if you didn't enter.

Now, let's bust some wax. I've got 1991 Upper Deck (because we have LOTS of them to open!!):

Marty Clary - Braves - Free Agent
Mark Grace Checklist - Cubs - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Chuck Knoblauch - Twins - Free Agent
Kirk McCaskill - Angels - Free Agent
Junior Felix - Blue Jays - Saitama Sushi (Wahoo!!)
Todd Zeile - Cardinals - Free Agent
Harold Reynolds - Mariners - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Bret Saberhagen Checklist - Royals - Free Agent
Ray Lankford - Cardinals - Free Agent
Ron Hassey - A's - Free Agent
Terry Pendleton - Cardinals - Free Agent
Brett Knackert - Mariners - Free Agent
Gregg Olson - Orioles - Free Agent
Jeff Russell - Rangers - Free Agent
Dan Gladden - Twins - Pedersejs (Wahoo!!)
Angels Team Logo Sticker - Angels - Free Agent

Wow, that was certainly loaded up with free agents! I am hoping to open more packs per week so we have large player pools for the drafts. We'll see how it goes. Congratulations to the four folks here that added wax to their stacks!
