1947 BVL Draft

With Ollie selection, Dog Nation palms collective forehead

 
New York -- That the New England Hawks drafted Juan Soto with the first overall pick surprised nobody. That the injury-prone third baseman Miguel Andujar, at No. 2, would wear a NYC Scrapper uniform also came as no surprise.

Banksville brass wasted no time with the third pick. “The Banksville organization selects relief pitcher Oliver Perez,” whispered Mr. Charles, starring down the suddenly quiet room of owners.

Known for their famous cry of “Relievers are for losers,” the Dogs proceeded to draft relievers Matt Strahm and Seranthony Dominguez with their second and third round picks, respectively.

Bulldog fans flooded the radio stations with angry calls and protest. “I blanked out and fell on the kitchen floor after Mr. Charles said reliever pitcher,” recalled Ruben from Queens, who would need six stitches to close a head wound. “I still don’t know what reliever was drafted. Don’t tell me!” Pause. “What are they doing?”

Overall, Banksville drafted six relievers.

“They’re up to something,” said BVL scribe, Slick Rhodes. “Starters are for losers might be their new rallyng cry.”

Other notes:

* Toronto miFA Eguenio Suarez returns to Toronto with No. 9 pick.
* Scrappers predict merch involving Jack Flaherty and Miles Mikolas to move quickly.
* Reliever Jonny Venters is healthy again for the Greys.
* Foys selection of Jorge Polanco in 10th round unnerves Bip.
* Knights may have diamond in C Mitch Garver with No. 130.
* A few chuckles were heard when Hawks announce Greg Bird at No. 144.
