racersPlayoffs... Jason Skovran and his Southern Racers have won their second straight title! Congratulations Jason!! The Racers had a first round bye as Seed #1 and matched up against Mississippi River in Round 2. Southern was down 3 games to 2 and won game six 4-2 & then game seven 5-2 to move into the finals. They were matched against Joe Reagan's Rochester Parrots. After losing the opener 6-2 a late inning bomb from Randal Grichuk paced a Racer 5-4 win. In Rochester the Racers win 7-5 and Grichuk lead the way with a double, homer and 5 ribbies. The Parrots even it up 2 games each with a 12-4 pasting of the Racers. Greg Bird had a pair of two run homers. In game five Southern Hundley's 3 run bomb headlines an 8-4. Back to Southern for game six. Rochester forces a game seven with a 2-1 win. Harper's 1st inning homer was the edge. Game seven saw the Parrots get two solo homers in top of 9th to take a 4-2 lead but in the bottom half Kinsler sends into extra innings with his 2 run bomb. On it went into the 14th and the Racers popped the corks on the bubbly when Frazier hits a walk off two run homer.


On the trade market we are about where we were last year with 15 teams making deals. Most active are Jim Kockler & Joe Reagan. Both in double digits..... Just a reminder that after June 16th the trading of draft picks will end and you will have to trim your roster to 30. On the 19th our email draft will begin. I will get the web pages updated and send you an excel sheet with all the free agents before the 19th..... Can you trade during the draft? Yep but only players and that includes guys you just drafted. Draft picks are officially locked to the listed team. That said, nobody can keep you from making a "back-channel" draft pick deal. Whoops! Sorry about that. No politics here.




After this date, all of future proposals will require 2/3 approval (currently 12)
