  1. Question says:

    Just a quick question on what’s the point of having two lists? There are guys on the major list that are retired and don’t even play anymore and then you have guys like Montano the starting short stop for the seasons best major team on the watch list? Either people don’t have a clue that are putting this list together or that’s a mistake.

    • DW says:

      Player ratings are in the eye of the beholder so there is no wrong answer but Montano received zero votes to be on the Major list from the committee. He received almost unanimous votes to be on the Watch List.

      The best way to see if the committee is correct about a team or player is to see where those questionable players play the next year. If he is on a Major team starting then you are probably right and a mistake was made.

      Montano is a great player but he was a utility player for TDB forced into the starting role when Cayton left for Dan Smith.

      • Ricky says:

        How about the middle infielders for MAJ? Them boys gonna to be fun to watch.

      • Qustion says:

        That’s some wild stuff right there. A guy like Montano gets zero votes to be on the Major list but your telling me Helmer, Rulli, Krause, Hall among others, all older retired guys from the conference are still receiving Votes? Not to mention other guys like Salas, Powers, Rainwater etc who you don’t see anymore. If I’m not mistaken Ellwanger was just a utility role player with less playing time than Montano and he is on the Major list. I’m not singling anyone out on these list’s just using them as examples and all I’m saying is it looks like its made up as you go along.

        • DW says:

          I agree all of the older players should have been taken off the lists but they were not voted on. It was decided by the higher ups at usssa to leave the legendary players on until they appeal. As far as Montano you aren't wrong if you say he should be on the watch list or major list. Ellwanger was already on the major list from prior years and definitely proved he belonged and was a starter for the championship of the Major.


          Many hours were put into the lists by many committee members. I don't agree with all of the final decisions, but then no one agrees with everything when you are talking about opinions.
