With the 142'nd pick in the 2008 MTS AAT draft,

Macedonian Bengal would like to select

Lhp Edward Reynoso

For those who plan on following Edward Reynoso this year, you may want to make this update. It turns out his name is Darwin DeLeon.

Way to go MB!

Any chance that I could still participate? If so is Ryan Roberson still available? Thanks in advance!!

He is available according to the first post so I assume the powers that be will put your name next to his. Keep us posted on Double R.

Yoda, Edman, Yoop, anyone?

So I drafted Edward Reynoso based on what i knew of him and his stats, and this name was the one that appeared on the draft list.

So is he one of those name changing players and his name is really Darwin DeLeon or what?

I'm a bit confused.:ponder:

All i know is I picked a decent prospect from the DSL, but what's up with the name so I can update my AAT sig?

Should I put AAT: Edward Reynoso aka Darwin DeLeon or what?

Whatever you wanna do. He was Edward Reynoso last year, but this year he is listed in the media guide as Darwin De Leon. Apparently Edward Reynoso was an alias.

With the 39th pick I would like Hernan Perez...it'll give me an excuse to visit Venezuela. This is not a late pick..I'm still on dial-up and it is kinda slow.

Kinda slow? I would say that is a slight understatement.

I didn't see my AAT all spring (Kibler). I would guess that he starts the season in extended spring.

Londell Taylor!

Sorry, he is taken.

Update: I have given IMSG Londell Taylor and have adopted the rare left-handed knuckle curve ball artist Ramon Garcia, currently with the Whitecaps.

I'll take Zach Simons, otherwise known as: "the guy we got for Grilli"!

ph_450583.jpg

His stats

Also...

CNBC just did a story about sports agents and the loyalty (or lack thereof) of their player/clients. The story featured Rockies farmhand Zach Simons, who received a $625,000 bonus to sign with the Rox in 2005.

The odd part of this story is that Simons put a TATTOO of his sports agent's firm logo on his right shoulder, his pitching shoulder! Apparently, he's trying to express his devout loyalty to the agent that helped him land the big bonus.

Maybe based on his stats, we can understand Simons' gratitude. He has a career ERA of 5.24 between rookie and low-A ball the past two seasons, with unimpressive peripherals. He also came off as a goofy "surfer dude" blonde personality on the CNBC story, and may never need the services of his agent again.

He even has his own wiki page!

Actually, I believe that One Mans Fool has first dibs on Simons, since he had Grilli.

- The person who has an AAT traded away has first shot at the player received.
