Easter Back from the Dead Mini-Tournament

Over Easter weekend I am going to run a Back from the Dead Mini-Tournament.  What do I mean by that?

I am taking the 4 worst full-season Minnesota Twins teams in the history of the franchise and running them through a 4 team best of 5 bracket tourney.   Winner gets redemption.
Those teams, ranked from worst to best are, with their top player by WAR, Rotation, and Pen:

2016 Twins 59-103  #4 seed

Brian Dozier 6.5

Santana By
Santiago Cw
Duffey Dz
Milone Dz

Kintzler B*z
Pressly B*y
Rogers C*xz
Boshers C*xz

1982 Twins 60-102 #3 seed

Tom Brunansky 5.6

Bobby Castillo By
Frank Viola Dyz
Al Williams Dz
Terry Felton Dxw

Ron Davis C*x (the Vulture is going to get a lot of work)

2011 Twins 63-99  #2 seed

Scott Baker 4.4

Baker Bxz
Pavano Crz
Blackburn C
Liriano Cyw

Perkins A*xy
Dumatrait B*w

On a side note, the 2011 cards are almost paper thin and the print is light.

1999 Twins 63-97  #1 seed

 Brad Radke 6.5

Radke Bz
Mays Cy
Milton Dyz
Hawkins Dz

Miller A*yz
Wells B*z
Trombley C*xz

Chicago Selection Saturday

The Chicagoland APBA Tournament run by Rob Spatz is a fantastic tourney run by one of the outstanding individuals in the APBA community, and now he has added another event, Selection Saturday!

The summer Chicagoland teams must have a winning percentage below .556. 
I have selected the 2008 Minnesota Twins!   At 88-74 they should be a solid team. 

Mauer .328/.451/.413
Morneau .300/.499/.374
Gomez stole 33

Fielding 1 no matter what pitching moves I make.  

My "Ace": Scotty Baker Bxz

The Terminator: Joe Nathan A&C*kz
