Good way to stay on topic and contribute to the thread. :-t :-°

Anyways, there are a bunch of questionable picks and stuff, I'm not going to bother posting them all. But a few highlights: RedSox Rules picked Utley over Ortiz, and Ortiz and Manny weren't picked until 12 and 13.

Well I can't say I'll be using this as a guide or for anything for any of my '07 drafts.

Jeter, Morneau, and Ichiro, and Liriano in the 2nd is questionable, as is Sizemore in the 1st. Not to mention Mauer in the 3rd. Rolen, Chipper, and Dye in the 3rd are reaches, as is Crede in the 4th.

I see Vlad and Bay being huge steals in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

Drafting any closer in the 3rd or 4th rounds is a no-no for me - with 4 going in those two rounds.

I don't think the point of the thread was to ask for a better way to do the draft, or to question why they did it. Maybe they didn't want to do a slow draft. Maybe they liked doing it in person while working. I agree it's already a mess, but he's not coming here asking for alternate drafting methods.

Nobody made a negative mention to it except for you, so basically if it wasn't for you nobody would have really cared that much that he made a post regarding the types of drafts. I mean, this isn't about alternative drafting methods, but the thread isn't about bashing mods/vets, either.

Besides if I was his boss I probably wouldn't be happy about fantasy drafts going on while workers were on the clock.

No one is bashing anyone. I thought it was an unnecessary comment.

So you bringing it back up after it went basically unnoticed for 5 posts was really necessary? Finding every possible excuse to berate mods isn't going to make you any friends.

Anyway, basically everything has been said about the draft. I'm curious as to why you took Lugo though? I mean you already have Jeter and then took Weeks the following round so even if Lugo did end up with 2B eligibility, he still becomes a backup. I think your team is relatively solid but needs a little more thump.

What? If you have anything to show how I do this, please, I'd be glad to see it, because I don't know what you're talking about. I wasn't aware that if a post is made, and the next post doesn't involve the previous one, the first post is now off limits. That's what you're telling me. That because 5 other people didn't comment on it, no one is now allowed to. All I did was say I didn't think it was necessary, and it was over. I went back to the original topic. It wasn't me who has now dragged this thing on.
