Take your time. Being that there's no clock you're not obligated to make your pick until the actual start date. Don't get upset if you get mobbed by an angry league who's excited to get drafting though. :-b

As another note, especially while Yahoo isn't open yet, when selecting players with outfield eligibility please be sure to check for their specific position.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Are we just doing one round before Feb 17? Or are we officially off, albeit with no clock, and see how far we get by then?

I need to do some mocks from #1 slot!!


Hope you didnt rush your pick. As I said in the pm to you, you had until the 18th at noon to select someone.

The clock will not start until noon on Feb. 17. If we get through 2 rounds before then, so be it. Could be more than one round.


Well, i thought about it for all of 30 seconds... ;-)

Wasn't that diffcult!!

I think Hanley was the right selection too, especially with keeper status in mind. ;-D

Exactly, no rush. ;-D But don't be surprised if Aussie shows up at your door with pitches and forks.

I draft Wright in this keeper and trade for Wright in my other keeper.

Today was a good day. :-)

Thanks for the PM Aussie. ;-D



Before the draft I told myself that at #6 I'd go with Miggy or Reyes, but I still labored long about that pick. I think I ultimately made the right one though.

At least you guys know. I probably won't have my pick in until Wednesday at the very earliest.
