Yeah, I noticed. B-)

I'll give AFF his 12-hours just in case, and post my picks in the morning.

I had planned for Vogelbach for this pick as I thought he wouldn't be on anyone's radar. I guess with Bwanna owning every MiLB pick, I should have known better. :-b I guess I'll take a different 80-power rated prospect instead.

Everyone check the names as I add them to the farm roster spreadsheet: http://bit.ly/lfod

Fade, Ozuna was on my list, but just a bit lower. Will be interesting to see how these big boys advance over the next couple of years.

Btw, I hadn't looked at our original 2008 rosters in a while, check them out on the spreadsheet if you want a blast from the past. I have four players remaining from that original roster (five if you count one that has come back to me in a trade).

That's OK, Votto was offset by the next pick - Andy LaRoche.

Well, are several in that first round that were in line with Snider - Joba, Buchholz, Rasmus, Maybin.

Wow.

I thought I destroyed that MiLB draft at the time. I say mine was easily the worst. Hell, five years later and two of them are STILL prospects and on my MiLB roster. Gross.

Hey, I drafted Trout, so suck it. !+)

now that we're in the final round of the MiLB draft, are we going to try to set a more firm date for roster finalizing?

Looks like we'll be done sometime this weekend at the very latest. How does Sunday night sound for a roster freeze deadline?
