I disagree with your logic. If you spread him out over a month time period your mail is going to stagger in on him. Last year the only two returns I seen come back from him were both guys that sent staggered mail. Every year he is probably the most sought after player in my opinion. For the past 3 spring trainings I've seen his name come up more than anyones. You might be right but I will take 18 shots at him vs 1

I did not send out all of my requests in one shot. I am trying to send in a request every other day in hopes when he decides to sign, mine will end up in that pile. It seems like he typically signs once during ST recently, and if you miss that one window, you are probably shut out for the year. I have never gotten him sending him once or twice a year.

here's mine so far:

Rosario - COL
Cook - OAK
Miley - ARI
Latos - CIN
Turner - MIA
Grilli - PIT
Matsuzaka - CLE
Grandal - SDP
Johnson - TOR
Harvey - NYM
Hellickson - TBR
Farnsworth - TBR
Betances - NYY
Pettite - NYY
Robertson - NYY
Rodriguez - WAS
Maya - WAS

It might be a little late, but there's a few more I wanted to send but haven't gotten around to yet... I'll wait until Tuesday for:

Harper - WAS
Chisenhall - CLE
Middlebrooks - BOS
Braun - MIL
Alonso - SDP
Nakajima - OAK
Bautista - TOR
ICHIRO - NYY

I'd try Mariano, but I was lucky enough to get him last year.
If i could get any repeats, I'd try Brett Anderson or RA Dickey, I was lucky to get them last year but they smudged

Yoenis is really cool! I got him last year on an index card... and I got 2/2 from Dickey and 1/1 of Hamilton. You might have to wait awhile for Votto, Hamilton or Kershaw. I got Hamilton in like 9 months or something. Ackley is almost automatic i think, but anyway good luck with these

Thanks! I actually just found the TTM database on SCF. That really helps to see who to send out to.
