The Frankenset Bracket: The Sweet 16 (Pt. 1)


This has turned out to be most exciting region of the bracket.

#9 (Page 47) -- 1973 Topps #420 Tommie Agee (19 votes)

def.

#1 (Page 56) -- 1985 Topps #497 Gary Pettis UER (14 votes)




#12 (Page 1) -- 1960 Topps #5 Wally Moon (17 votes)

def.

#4 (Page 62) -- 1975 Topps #550 Ralph Garr (15 votes)




#3 (Page 15) -- 1973 Topps #133 Dave Roberts (18 votes)

def.

#6 (Page 71) -- 1986 Topps #639 Bo Diaz (14 votes)




#15 (Page 28) -- 1970 Topps #252 Lowell Palmer (22 votes)

def.

#10 (Page 24) -- 1991 Studio #216 Steve Lake (10 votes)

Only one of the top eight seeds from this region (Roberts) moved on to the Sweet 16, and yet another #1 fell to the wayside with Tommie Agee's victory over the Pettis brother swap. Also, #15 seed Lowell Palmer continued his magical run with a commanding win last week to keep him alive in the tourney.

With that, we bid adieu to the Terrific 32...

-----------------------------

...and say hello to the Sweet 16.

In the interest of time and space, I've combined the Sweet 16 matchups from both the first and second regions into one post for all of you to vote on this week. 

We're getting into the real nail-biting excitement now.

Jermaine Allensworth reading a book on how to hit would have been much more appropriate.
