Definite Cuts

E-mail me if you have any definite cuts so I can start cleaning up the roster sheet. Nothing is final until cut down day, but there are always some guys that just don't need to show up to camp.

First Warpig cuts are Geoff Geary, Billy Wagner, Russ Springer, Brian Giles, and Cody "2010 Playoff God" Ransom.

Uncarded Players on Rosters

I just gave the Ratings Disk the once-over and these are the players who are currently on our rosters and don't have cards. I haven't double checked, so I may have overlooked a player here or there. E-mail me if I left someone off OR if I listed someone who IS carded.

Some of these are prospects who haven't gotten called up, some just didn't get enough AB/IP to get carded, and some were injured or retired.

By the way, just to clarify, uncarded players can be kept or cut. It's up to you. As long as you have the reserve picks, you can keep them. This post is just to identify them.

This Day in History: U.S. Baseball Hall of Fame elects first members

On January 29, 1936, the U.S. Baseball Hall of Fame elects its first members in Cooperstown, New York: Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Matthewson and Walter Johnson.

The Hall of Fame actually had its beginnings in 1935, when plans were made to build a museum devoted to baseball and its 100-year history. A private organization based in Cooperstown called the Clark Foundation thought that establishing the Baseball Hall of Fame in their city would help to reinvigorate the area's Depression-ravaged economy by attracting tourists. To help sell the idea, the foundation advanced the idea that U.S. Civil War hero Abner Doubleday invented baseball in Cooperstown. The story proved to be phony, but baseball officials, eager to capitalize on the marketing and publicity potential of a museum to honor the game's greats, gave their support to the project anyway.

In preparation for the dedication of the Hall of Fame in 1939--thought by many to be the centennial of baseball--the Baseball Writers' Association of America chose the five greatest superstars of the game as the first class to be inducted: Ty Cobb was the most productive hitter in history; Babe Ruth was both an ace pitcher and the greatest home-run hitter to play the game; Honus Wagner was a versatile star shortstop and batting champion; Christy Matthewson had more wins than any pitcher in National League history; and Walter Johnson was considered one of the most powerful pitchers to ever have taken the mound.

Today, with approximately 350,000 visitors per year, the Hall of Fame continues to be the hub of all things baseball. It has elected 278 individuals, in all, including 225 players, 17 managers, 8 umpires and 28 executives and pioneers.
