Top 3 picks went exactly as I expected. Robbie Cano and I talked on the phone earlier this morning. He's excited to join the ironman squad.

So I marked Havok down for Anthony Bass. That's right, right?

Or is it Mike Carp?

Or Robert Fish?

Tim Salmon?

Can't think of who else it could be, unless he was picking the Fish, a.k.a. the Marlins. I'm cool with just filling up his roster with all the Marlins players and locking his entire draft in. Mods?

We are all obviously ichthyology experts here and all know very well that is a picture of a TROUT.

I don't think a suspension is likely, but who knows of anything comes of this investigation... Maybe Bud Selig is out to get him after he got off on a technicality last year.


Ya, it was basically a 4-man race for me: Braun, MCab, Trout, Kemp. I don't know how Trout will react to the "sophomore slump" especially since he is so young. Does he think it's too easy? will he coast and not work hard now that he's "made it?" MCab was worrisome only because of the monster season he had--when you win the triple crown, anything else after that is a failure, right? The PEDs worried me on Braun, but they didn't seem the affect him last year, so I figured he could handle it again. Kemp just seemed like the 4th best in the group, so I didn't want to take him #1....

Not to sound whiny. But MCab should be listed under 3B in "players taken" thread. Some people only look at certain positions and while I doubt anyone here will think MCab is available in round 15, there's always the possibility of someone saying "I didn't see him listed under 3B, so i thought everyone just skipped him assuming he'd already been picked..." and then 5 more guys get picked before someone mentions that MCab got picked 15 rounds ago and it's a big to-do about who the guy can draft with players taken after his pick, etc.

I don't think that's whiny. It was a simple goof that's not been fixed. Thanks for the spot.
