Default What is your 2013 Spring Training Success percentage?!

Alright Folks...

Now that Spring training is in its final stretch...

I was wondering what sort of percentage of successes everyone had this year?

This was my first year sending to Spring Training but...

I only got 2 out of 20 sent = 10% returned

Based on this, Prob not going to do it again next season.

Anyone else have Better or Worse luck this year!?

Currently, I'm 4/50. I did a mix of prospects and stars, though and expected it to be a little low, but not 8% low. Got Zunino, Hultzen, Junior Lake, and Billy Hamilton.

If it makes you feel any better, I've seen to Taijaun twice (last year once and this ST once) and so far, I've struck out against him. But I hear he strikes out a lot of guys... LOL

Haven't gotten anything back yet, but have sent to some guys like Kershaw and Hamilton who generally return after a long time. I just hope I can get Zack Wheeler to sign and return.

While this is not encouraging news, I am glad that I am not the only one bummed out.

Im going 30/150 but of those i sent to at least 20 replied to others that i did not recieve. So im still hoping I get a couple more back through the year. Big names were Trammell, Beltre. I sent to about 50 coaches so I think a few of those might roll in. Also had about 25 top tier guys I didnt expect back like David Wright, Matt Cain, etc. As well a few coaches who never return, Chili Davis, Mike Scioscia, etc. I expected to hit about 50/150 by end of ST then 70/150 by end of year. So im a little behind but I still hope to receive around 50ish by end of year. I would consider 50% amazing and 30-40% average. If I get one or two of Trout, Kershaw, Hamilton, Wright, Cain I would be happy with 10% success rate.

A couple guys who returned I'm missing returns on were Howie Kendrick, Ron Washington, Derek Holland, Elvis Andrus, Andrew Bailey, Michael Cuddyer, John Danks, Lucas Duda, Paul Goldschmidt, Will Middlebrooks, Juan Pierre, Wilin Rosario, Dan Straily, Mike Taylor, Matt Thornton, Dan Uggla and Jordan Zimmerman.

I went 11-for-15. Got back Kole Calhoun, David Carpenter, Steve Cishek, Ryan Cook, Pat Corbin, Steve Delabar, Lucas Luetge, Michael Saunders, Dan Straily, Tom Wilhelmsen, and Brad Ziegler. Still waiting on AJ Ellis, Lucas Harrell, Matt Harvey, and Jeremy Moore.

Basically, my friend in CT sent me a few retail packs of Update over the holidays, and was sad that I didn't get an auto (she doesn't understand the difference between retail odds and hobby odds...plus, in the four years prior, I'd gotten two autos from what she sent me). I told her not to worry, and that I would turn "no autos" into "several autos." And so I did, using cards in the packs she gave me.

Hah! That is one way to get some autos out of retail packs!

How about sucky?? Is sucky a percentage?? Just kidding...sort of...I am 14 out of fifty something. Roughly 25%...but this does not include the multiples I sent to players like Rivera. My percentage goes downhill big time with that included. I knew I sent to a bunch of longshots, but I am striking out with all of them thus far. I think Headley is my best return thus far. While I realize that Hamilton and Trout typically sign at the end of the season, I am hopeful some of my big name players will roll in when ST wraps up.

4/18 but I did send to some pretty big names but we have to remember the WBC happened so that probably screwed alot of it up. You never know with TTM it could still show up later

I am 4/64. I live in Canada so figured more time would be spent in transit, but thought I'd do better. I got back Jamey Carroll, Ryan Cook, Todd Frazier, and Matt Thornton.

For ST I am sitting at 9/32, so 28.1% but there were a few long shots in there and guys like Hamilton and Kershaw who sign at the end of the year
