24 hours seems too long... Perhaps a 12 hour picking limit will help speed up the pace?

Agreed. The pace needs to pick up!

As far as actual picking goes. I was pretty happy nailing Reyes at 3.8. He had a very solid year and really picked up the pace in the second half in what turned out to be a disastrous situation in Miami. I am concerned about the turf and his health/legs, but he stayed healthy all of last year, so maybe there is some hope. I think its reasonable if he stays healthy to put up a .300/100/10/50/40 line. At SS, ill cross my fingers and hope.

I was thinking about Reyes or Hanley in round 3 but ultimately opted for Harper... Hanley is solid but not the same player he was a few years ago even with the bounce back.... And Reyes worries me with the league switch on top of all the issues u mentioned as well.

We've done 12 hour limits before, but we normally add some time if it's an overnight pick. Some people just aren't available to check in at all hours. How about 12 hours, but we turn the clock off from midnight to 6AM? So if you come up at 8:00 AM, you need to pick by 8:00 PM. If you don't come up til 10:00 at night and you've already gone to bed you have until 4:00 the next afternoon. Which still seems like a long time. Especially if you know your pick is coming up and you plan ahead at all.

Yeah, I can get behind that. Seriously... Guys need to be submitting their picks to someone who will be here if you are busy. I understand people get busy and have lives to live... By a heads up would be nice to fellow mock drafters.
