Card Ratings … Draft Guides … Trade and Draft Advice … SOM Card Projections …

LAMANNA’S BASEBALL BULLETIN (LBB), in our 33rd year, is a Strat-O-Matic Baseball newsletter devoted to assisting SOM Baseball managers in evaluating every card in the SOM card set. All of the LBB ratings and LBB player evaluations are published between the end of the baseball season and opening day at the SOM Game Company.

The LBB card projections, for fielding, stealing and card chances, are a must for confident drafting and trading before the cards are available. Then, the New Card Rating issue gives you all the actual rating numbers! Get the information that the other guys in your league aren’t telling you about, because this is their edge for trading and drafting against you!

Oct. 25, 2017:  I have created the pdf files for the rev 2 projections and the excel file.  I plan to e-mail those 3 files out tomorrow night.  I have made some changes to the fielding ratings, some corrections of errors and fixed the low inning/low at-bat players to make their cards work out.  Thanks to everyone who sent input to me for these changes.  The big changes were bumping Ozuna and Pollock up to 1′s.

Oct. 16, 2017:  I will be mailing the LBB 2017 Projections on Thursday, Oct. 19, (close to midnight).  I have not sent out renewal notices so unless you have checked in for the new password, your subscription may be expired.

Oct. 2, 2017:  I posted catchers arms and * starting pitchers.  There is no -4 throwing arm catcher on my list and it must be the fewest * starting pitchers in the history of Strat.

You won’t see many photos of me with a Red Sox hat on, but when in Rome…


Cal and I were on the same flight to Baltimore.  When I went to Camden Yards, I saw Chris Davis hit his 40th!
