    Might go with this guy. Would be very nice down the order. Probably not so good in OD, but I guess he could just bat down the order in OD and up the order in FC. Batting is low, but he has some stamina, good concentration, and nice keeping.
    Or something.

    Manhattan and Line Graphs to be released live with each match. Sounds a bit gimmicky, but I'm for it.

    Reasonable price for those skills, not bothered about the age as he's good enough to not need to train further (apart from stamina). Would've preferred someone more attacking, but meh.

    I was hoping to get another 17 yo bat on the tm today, but it's not happening unless I want to dish out $500k for a competent. Ridiculous.

    So I just put all of the nets on a 30 year old, I'll leave them on him and get his secondaries right up. Hopefully I'll be able to sell him for three times what I bought him for.
