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!

March 21, 2014 – I made the same mistake for Matt Holliday.  His numbers have also improved vs RHP.  His hits are 26.0, OB is 44.0, TB is 63.8 and his straight home runs are 4.7.

Feb. 23, 2014 – A correction for Carlos Quentin, he’s even better now.  I read his 1-10 HR 1-17 as a 1-9 HR 1-17.  Here’s the correct numbers vs RHPing.

Feb. 16, 2014 – The only mistake reported in the LBB information is for Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado.  He should have 7 ball park diamonds vs LHPing instead of 8.  All of his other numbers are correct.  I doubt anyone traded him over this!  Let me know if you find anything else.  Thanks to the subscriber who pointed this out.

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!

Don’t try to log into the Word Press software, that’s for me only! The only password protected page is the rookie page and when I get to writing it, i’ll protect a Q&A page too.
