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

LAMANNA’S BASEBALL BULLETIN (LBB), in our 34th 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. 16, 2019:  Bradley Zimmer was left off of page 21 in the Card Ratings Issue.  I have a new revison of the issue for subscribers who want it with Zimmer included and the next 3 indicated as NC.  Federowicz, Negron and Leiter are all no-cards on pages 33, 34 and 35.  Most of Zimmer’s correct information is on page 46 except the good lead and the fielding.

Jan. 14, 2019:  The Card Ratings Issue has been sent out today.  The Draft Guide will be sent out on or before Jan. 28.  There are 270 rookies in this card set.  I believe my posted list is a little over 160.
