He was available in another league I'm in AND had 1st pick. I traded it away rather than make the choice. High risk, high reward. Good luck!


More kahunas? :-?

1) Sorry for the delay. Berate me with insults as necessary...

2) Was my pick legit? Technically he signed the day the draft started. If not, I'll probably cry in the corner and then re-pick...

As far as I'm concerned it's legit.

We're on a 12-hour clock, right? Just to confirm...

I think technically Cespedes' contract has not been finalized, and he's not officially a an A until that happens. At this point, I think it would fall under the same category as, say, a newly drafted prospect that hasn't yet signed a contract with that team.

I'm not sure if that is right or not - I don't want to be the one that messes up Jake's pick. ;-)

Since the rules don't say specifically when the player has to be signed by. I vote for a legit pick.
He who knows not and knows not he knows not: he is a fool - shun him. He who knows not and knows he knows not: he is simple - teach him. He who knows and knows not he knows: he is asleep - wake him. He who knows and knows he knows: he is wise - follow him

Whatever the league decides on this, I'm fine with. But I would prefer that if I can't draft him now that no one is able to draft him. I would hate to see him become a 5th round pick just because he contract gets settled in the 5th round...

The letter of the law says he's hands off till officially signed IMO. Don't want to be the bearer of unnecessary bad news, but in this case I think the right thing to do is to re-pick since the rule reads:

Drafted players must meet MLB rookie eligibility and must be signed by an MLB team

I'm inclined to let this one slide. After all, an agreement was reached. It's just not official until visa is issued and physical is passed.
