If anybody was curious to know the status of my Prospect Smackdowns, wanted to let you all know that I'm working on the next one. The delay on this actually owes something to the recent slew of major league callups . . .I was planning on doing Matt Antonelli vs. Eric Patterson and Buchholz vs. Chamberlain, but the latter player in both cases has been called up to the major leagues. I'd still be willing to do Buchholz vs. Chamberlain (given that such a feature would likely attract a lot of interest) as the third of the series, but it'd be something I'd want to push past the community first before proceeding.
The second Smackdown should be up sometime tomorrow evening. You get a couple of very small hints. The first is that it actually features two players who were NOT suggested in the initial thread. The second is that both players play for National League teams. If anybody can guess who's about to get the Smackdown treatment, I'll gladly do a 3rd/4th Smackdown specifically according to the winner's wishes. If needed, I'll head back to the list of suggestions . . .there were a couple in particular that I thought would end up being fun to work with.
Thanks for the positive response to the first one folks. Hope you'll enjoy what I've got on the way.
