There are 8 or 9 players that will be in every owners top 14 though obviously not in the same order. The interesting part is seeing which other 5 to 6 end up going in the 1st round because the next group has a very wide range of opinions on them.

If they're like me, it's to click on the 'notify me' button so that I know when picks start being made in Rd 2 ;-)

I really see it as a firm 8. The first 8 picks were the exact 8 I would have thought, and I wouldn't have changed any of them. There are simply too many issues with guys like Bautista, Cargo, and the next few guys to be safe enough as the top 8. Kemp/Trout are really the only two with any real risk, and they are also the two guys that could be far and away the no. 1 player, as they both have proven, thus making them worth the risk. The other six guys all are so solid, even in down times like Pujols, that they are perfect for early round 1 picks.
Goldy is King.

Looks like it's 12+ hours for Fenris, so I say DaShiz should get a pick in to keep this going. I'll send him a note, but hopefully Fenris picks soon (and, hopefully, he was PM'd to be notified it's his turn anyway).

Hold fire there! The 12 hour timer doesn't start officially until midnight Friday! ;-)

Ah, I see. I read the first message in the thread but not the third one with the official timer note. Okay, I retract the timer call. Just thought it was going so well ...
