Any idea when Lotzkar would pitch again? Hoping to catch him in Burlington this week and just wondered when it would line up.

I have searched the 'net for MLB Playoff Pools, looking for templates or rules, and cannot seem to locate much. Does anyone have suggestions on how such a pool can be run? Various options? I am hoping to organize such pools as a fund-raiser for my 11 year old son's travel baseball team.

If you do have suggestions, please reply within the following thread:

Francisco and Frazier finally made outs. Heisey singled and is now 3-for-3 with a single, triple, homerun, and a walk through five innings. He needs a double for the cycle.

Dude hasn't done a thing since he was drafted out of college. He was Stubbs without the CF fielding, or the plate approach. Stubbs has been barely hanging on, BJ fell off the tracks long ago.

Time to do one last set of promotions with Valaika, Dickerson, Fraizer, Henry, maybe Dorn, and for the heck of it b/c his stuff is just that good Zach Stewart to AA(I saw him pitch when he was in Dayton and from what I saw, he is good enough to be in the bullpen for the Reds coming out of ST) just think a bullpen next year of CoCo, Burton, Roenicke, Stewart, Bray, maybe Affeldt...ie. no Coffey's, or Magic Men

IIR Dorn was hurt early in the season. As a result, he had a bad start. On June 5, he was hitting .247 with no HRs. 45 games later he is over .270 with 15 HRs. He signed after his senior college year, so he is already 24. It's time to see what he can do at AAA.

Ha, touche. I guess I was holding out hope that he could at least be a guy that was shuffled back and forth between AAA and the Majors a few years down the line (which isn't saying much for a second-round pick). But he won't even get there.

I wouldn't care if they just released this guy. He has an Ivy League education, might be time for the kid to find his life's work.

You can line everything up by making sure it's lined up in Notepad and then using the code function (sometimes you have to click on 'Go Advanced' and then click on the pound (#) sign). Or if clicking isn't your thing, you can just type without the pound signs.

I think it's interesting how bad the Lookouts' bullpen has been. At the beginning of the year, some of us (including some national press) were saying it could possibly be the best bullpen in all of the minors. This was back when the bullpen still had Josh Roenicke and Danny Herrera, but they were sent to Louisville long ago. Thankfully, Robert "Bullpen God" Manuel and Ramon "Dr. Zero" Geronimo are with the team to help balance things out.

Yeah, it's crazy. Almost as crazy as a small-market team shelling out 40-something million dollars for a closer when they aren't even close to having all of the other pieces in the puzzle in place. What kind of team would do that?
