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

LAMANNA’S BASEBALL BULLETIN (LBB), in our 30th 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!

Jan. 30, 2015 – The draft guide was mailed today.  I posted some ratings corrections in 2014 baseball stuff link on the left.  I have been swamped this year.  I know that I owe someone an updated Fielding issue and a few people have asked for help finding people for their face to face leagues, I’ll try to get to those this week.

Jan. 25, 2015 – The Draft Guide is done.  I will send out a pdf file on Monday night.  Hard copies will follow about a week later.  Thanks.

Jan. 11, 2015 – I will be sending out the pdf file of the card ratings issue on Monday Jan. 12th.  Have fun, John

Dec. 31, 2014:  I’m currently working on both issues!  I do not have a release date for either issue yet.  As soon as I have a date, I will post it.  Pretty much the same format as always!  Happy New Year to all.  John

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