Now I know that we're to many of the names that aren't nearly as sexy and interest is bound to tail off, it is also that time where everyone's rankings begin to deviate substantially, so it is much easier to leave lists with people.

We can't continue to use 8-12 hours (in some instances) of the clock before each pick if we want to complete this draft on time. We have 9 more rounds left, so let's improve the pace.

Hey guys,

I'm back in town. Sorry for the inconvenience. I really like the picks that raiders_umpire made for me, so much thanks to him for his help and keeping the draft moving in my absence. I see that all the stickying has been taken care of, but I'll maintain it for the rest of the draft. Hope everyone is doing well and I'm looking forward to getting the season underway ;-D

With that pick, I feel like my offense is made up of all the same type of guys - sluggers with poor splits and/or PT issues: Joyce, Trumbo, Belt, Quentin. :-o

Were you on spring break or something? Mine was spent writing a dissertation. :-S

8 rounds to finish still and it would be really nice to be finished at least a couple days before the 1st game so people have time to make roster moves etc. Are we nearing the point where we have to consider moving to an 8 hour time window to get this done in time?

Yes, we are. I had considered reducing the clock a few days ago, but the pace had picked up for a moment - too bad it was only for a moment. We obviously need to improve the pace if we want to finish by then. We have a little less than two weeks to finish 7.5 rounds.

We'll reduce the clock to 8 hours to begin the next round. Anyone have any issues with that?

8 hrs is great, but I'd even vote for 6 hrs.

If 6hrs is what people would prefer, I'd be fine with it - but I won't go any lower than that.

We can try 6 hrs with the clock off from 2 AM EST to 8 AM EST if that works for everyone?

Fade, yes I was on spring break. Spent the week in the Bahamas and it was great. Sorry to hear you spent yours writing a dissertation, but I hope it turned out ok?
