this. Sorry, Michael, gotta vote against you here. I'm good with him keeping Cespedes.


You're uninvited. No one disagrees with me! :-b

Btw, I have an offer out to kyfly and he hasn't been around since I sent it, so hopefully we can have a quick moment to talk it over in the a.m. before we're skipped. I have RC's pick and will make it shortly thereafter either way if he's not around.

Also: last year, didn't we do an 8-hour clock plus some sort of nighttime allowance, or was that a different league I'm thinking of?

Yeah, I say we let him keep Cespedes. If for some reason the signing doesn't happen, he has to pick again, but all of the other picks that happen in the meantime stand.

flyfisher PM'd me - he won't be able to pick until 4pm ET (?), but he made an offer to Cougs. If Cougs accepts the deal, it will be Cougs pick at #8.

I PMd you and kyfly - long story short, I'd like to talk over the deal with him, but we'll obviously need some leeway on the deadline due to disparate work/sleep schedules. It'll be a short and sweet chat, and there's definitely a deal to be done so hopefukly we can have a grace period without anyone jumping the gun :-o

RC, you keen with this?

I've got to apologize for the delay in drafting. Actually delaying drafts is a huge pet peeve of mine.
Normally I would have been around to settle this in the morning but I got called back to work today :~( so my schedule has been disrupted.
Just another case when the damn work thing is getting in the way

Made the turn and PM'd Cougs for his 2nd round pick. Ended up with a couple of local boys from Tulsa whom I was targeting, so pretty happy about that.

I say he gets him, but not repick at all if the signing doesn't happen. The contract status is a risk you take, and you shouldn't get compensated with an extra pick for a circumstance that was very forseeable.

Pretty stoked to get Walker on the way back - nothing better than a justified homer pick ;-)

Was surprised to see AFF let Bundy go in favor of Hultzen, but then I remembered his affinity for closer-to-MLB-ready guys like Hultzen ...

Anyone in the next few picks willing to deal for some combination of my 3rd and a serviceable MLB guy, or straight up for a better MLB guy?
