#45 (28.78) Vince Carullo

Notes:  Vince is an unknown that came into the league and quietly put up stupid numbers in 2018.  His salary is outrageous and will take a bold move by an owner to sign him for the 2019 season.  His talent will make it to a team one way or another, but his salary says he needs to be an ace. 

 

Hall of Fame Tourney History: This was Vince’s first year in the league.  He will be the #44 seed in this year’s bracket.

Notes: Nick owned the Legends of Leroy in 2015, a name that stuck for the National Team for the league.  He was very active in the first two seasons, and didn’t make an appearance in 2017 or 2018.  With his collegiate running career coming to a close soon, we hope to see him make a return.

Jim Tucker is taking the league by storm.  After an All Star Rookie season he looks to take the bull by the horns next year as an owner.  Tuck was signed by the Hawaiians right away after the 2nd week and it was the worst thing that could have happened to him.  The Hawaiians finished 11th in the standings before upsetting the Clams in the Death Bracket Semi Finals. 

 

Hall of Fame Tourney History:  This was Jim’s first year in the league.  He climbed all the way up to the #36 seed for the 2019 Bracket.

Awards:  Experience – 2 (2017-2018). 

 

Notes:  Brad came to play week in and out even playing for struggling teams.  He has just 4 wins in 35 games played throughout 2 years.  At some point you start to wonder if Brad is the problem. 

 

Bracket Info:  Brad was the #39 seed last year losing to Aaron Barnes in the first round.  He will give it a shot as the #35 seed in a shot to make an early round upset.

 

#35 (32.62) Alan Myszkowski

Notes:  The Man, The Myth, The Legend.  Alan pulled a MJ sick game to win the Championship for the Chainsmokers in 2014.  He hurled later that night after the most historically performance we will ever see.  After wanting to own a team in 2015 he never showed up and we have never seen him again.  He teases us every year with hopes of making a return. 

 

Bracket Info:  He was the #25 seed last year with a win over Zach Huisman in the early rounds before getting stopped by Matt Dykstra.  He will be the under dog this year as the #34 seed.

 

#34 (33.03) Ryan Barnes

2017: #37 (24.57)

2016: NA

Awards: Experience – 2 (2017-2018)

 

Notes:  Ryan came onto the scene in 2017 with trash talk and not backing down to anyone while wearing flip flops in some games.  Ryan made some noise with his ability to hold his ground and compete with the best through the weeks, he was signed to the Badgers last year and after trade talks fell stayed with the team throughout the final games.  For the first time he is the better higher ranked Barnes.

 

Bracket History:  Lost to Cody Martin in round 1 last season as the #37 seed.  He will go in with the #33 seed this season with hopes of pulling a week 1 upset.
