No Comeback This Season for Salinas
Tuesday, June 24th, 2008
Obviously disappointed, Manuel Salinas confirmed today that his season is officially over. The Cincinnati left fielder offered mostly monosyllabic responses to reporters. "Nope," he said, when asked if he might possibly return this year. The 32-year-old Salinas suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament on 06/22/2008 and has been out of action since.
TBC News: Draft Pool Revealed
Tuesday, June 24th, 2008
With the rookie draft only weeks away, clubs are huddled in their conference rooms, mapping out scouting strategies with their eye toward the future. These sabermetrical speculators will be traipsing across the fruited plain, hunting for the ideal find, trying to decipher the will, drive and pure passion on the unknown youthful faces before them. Some will rely on tried-and-true baseball knowledge, others psychology. And others will live by luck alone. Though their final assessments will be made and hashed over many times before draft day, the repercussions of draft day, good or bad, will endure long after the dust has settled.

At any rate, teams now have thirty days to scout the draft pool prior to the draft. The Transactions page also gets a new section dedicated to the pool.

The top players available (in no particular order) seem to be:
1. Leonardo Aguilar, 17 year-old LHP out of high-school.
2. Izaac Krivda, 19 year-old RHP out of college.
3. Jason Zornes, 22 year-old 3B out of college.
4. Mark Kays, 22 year-old RHP out of college.
5. Yasuhisa Taira, 19 year-old CF out of college.
6. Vince Barret, 17 year-old RHP out of high-school.
7. Jose Romero, 21 year-old RHP out of college.
8. Bob Staas, 18 year-old CF out of high-school.
9. Rich Wyatt, 20 year-old RHP out of college.
10. Rafael Gonzalez, 21 year-old LHP out of college.

You can find the draft pool in the league transactions screen (league menu).
