Comment on players picked and just how the draft is going in general here. Don't comment on players that haven't been picked yet though!

We're off and running!

I've never picked from the leadoff spot before. This could be interesting.

Can't go wrong with that pick.


I also have the links to the each person's PM page at the top of each round so it's easier to notify the next person

Shafted again! Pretty sure that I had the 11th pick in last year's mock as well.

Where's the drop off this year? 7/8th pick?
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm at 8, and I think there's just enough guys I like as first-rounders for me to end up with one.

I've gotta say, picking at #3 is perhaps the easiest choice in the draft. There's a very clear cut top 3 and I don't have to make too difficult of a choice.

As for clear cut 1st rounders, I've got up to 8 - 10, depending on certain factors. We'll see where this draft goes.

I'm going to be shooting from the hip during this mock, I feel really naked right now without my spreadsheet to look at. :~(

I haven't done my rankings yet. It feels really weird drafting without them. I'll at least throw together a list this weekend.
