    My draft thought...i really wanted 1 of the first 5 guys taken,i picked 6th,sooo i had 37 guys listed i think may not end up totally terrible,made a few trades to try to get as many of the 37 as possible since i missed on the top 5,theo brown was one of those guys,most likely my strategy will end up with bad results,but its been fun trying

    My draft thoughts...I got tired of picking outfielders for my past 2 drafts and am hoping the best college 3B can develop quickly and get me the help I need.

    after watching my closer implode in the playoffs last season, I needed a replacement pretty badly. This draft was blessed with some really good ones. Thankfully Orono was still willing to trade with us after we lost our #1 choice, Benintendi to NRT. Erdelyi was not a bad second choice. Don't pick again till the fourth round now, so he better pan out.

    If at any point we come up and don't have a pick loaded, fire away with Otto.

    Alright, I took the guy that can be a gold glover at every position including pitcher, although he can't hit a lick. Defensive sub extraordinaire...

    FWIW I made a list at 2.13 with Aaron James first and Damstra next. Too bad OOTP does not do double switches or you could use him as MR then defensive replacement in 80+ games.

    I've been quite lax about the draft clock this time around, mostly due to being rather busy this week. I am going to be much better about this for the rest of the draft. Rounds 4 and 5 are going to be on 1 hour timers, fwiw.

    We're into the 4th round, so again - 1 hour. The clock on the forum is set to 3600 seconds. I was slow on NRM (Mickey had a list but it was off) but won't be from here on out, unless I am distracted by work tomorrow.

    Cuervo: Please Otto the rest of my picks please. After looking at the remainder of the draft class, I feel comfortable letting him handle it.

    You guys will post to have me otto but not set "select best at" in the tool.

    (I mean, I get it. But I still have to go in and do something. So if I have 15 owners too lazy to do this, that means I have to do this 15 times. That said, KEN is set for "best non-pitcher" at 4.32, lets see how it works.)

    I've got Best SP pitcher available fired and ready to go. Sorry I missed the 4th rounder. I had been paying attention, but not enough to catch that time period where I was up.
