1946 BVL Draft

LES set to Ohtani Time; BC boss can't spell 'Reynaldo'

 
A chubby Dominican cleaning lady called Chupa arrives on the first Sunday of each month to dust off Bip's desk. Bip dissappeared over six years ago. He's been heard from since, but no one knows where he is. Chupa is careful dusting, making sure the desk remains untouched when Bip last sat behind it, especially around the old clock. "There are two drops of blood, on the crystal," said Chupa. "I never dust the clock. But someone needs to change the face so that it reads 1:33."

That time is significant: it's when LES drafted Shohei Ohtani. Almost immediately, the streets near Hester and Essex were colored by kids wearing T-shirts with "1:33" printed on one side and "Ohtani Time" on the other. "We haven't seen excitement like his since, well, since Bip disappeared," notes Slick Rhodes. Along with Ohtani, LES drafted future All Stars in Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Eloy Jimenez. "Ohtani Time means Winning Time," added Rhodes.

Ronald Acuna, who many believed would be the first player chosen, fell to No. 5 (Banksville).

Other notes:

• Tommy Phan is the first player selected by the expansionist NYC Scrappers.
• Hate calls flood WATG over the Knights selection of C Austin Barnes.
• Brick Church shocks and snags 2B Ozzie Albies and Yoan Moncada, late.
• More WATG hate calls: dinosaurs Ryan Zimmerman and Joe Mauer are Knights.
• Chanting in Homestead is frowned upon. The Walker Buehler pick will change that.
• BC boss Jesus Diaz is ripped when he asks for the spelling of Reynaldo Lopez's name.
