Player Name: Tim Lincecain
Jersey Number: 55
Age: 23
Position: Righthanded Starting Pitcher (bats lefty)
College: Washington U
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 170
Strengths: A top of the rotation talent with future all-star written all over him. Has an aggressive delivery with extremely fast arm action. Fastball is usually in the 92-96mph range but will touch 98-99 occasionally. Has an outstanding curve ball which can be a knee-buckler. Has a slider and changeup which aren't quite as dominant, but they're above adequate.
Weaknesses: Some have taken issue with Mr. Lincecain's delivery. Some feel it has future arm injury written all over it. But to date, Mr. Lincecain has never had any arm injury issues. He also breaks his hand from the glove a tad bit early, but his coaches have never wanted to tweak it because of his great track record. His walkrate may be a tad higher than you'd like.

Here is a video of the controlled fury that is Tim Lincecain's delivery:

Eric Greene
LHP
Rutgers University

6'4, 230

Strengths: Excellent team leader, not fazed by any pressure. Goes out and does his job, either starting, in the pen, or closing it out. Best pickoff since Andy Pettite. Gold glover, not many better with the leather off the mound. Smart. Movement on his money pitches(2-seamer and cutter) keep hitters off balance. Big range of pitches(2 seam, 4 seam, cutter, curve, splitter, slurve) give him a deadly arsenal

Weaknesses: Doesnt throw hard. Accuracy is normally good, but when he's off, boy, is he off! Will retaliate every time. Not all his pitches are good. Splitter is best used maybe 3 times a game, and slurve is unhittable, mostly cuz it's out of the strike zone.

Comparison: Andy Pettite, lefty Mike Mussina

Well, we got about 10-12 players and 2 GM's. At least the draft should go quickly.

Maybe have a shortened inagural season to show that you can run this well so we can get more signups for year 2?

Yeah, I was thinking something like that? How about 4 total teams, reduced players(5 or so) and 21 games(7 series). I'll have the NPC teams up by tommorow, with the Ratings ranges and NPC players after that.
