Nice pick Sherm. I debated picking him too, but needed offense in my system.

Half of these guys will be dropped by April....Rugged Odor might stick around though

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

which is why I have always said we should do the draft in reverse. IE. if you have 4 minor leaguers already you shouldn't pick til the last round. Otherwise, you keep people until it is convenient to drop before the draft and pick up another guy. By doing it the other way it makes the draft and minor leaguers mean more IMO, but what do I know

Didn't we used to do it that way moons ago? If not, Ill back voting that into the rules for next year. The guy who has 3 minor league players to start the season should have to lose them in order to pick in the first round or wait until its his turn in the 4th.

We didn't before, but I have said it a few times and no one ever backed me up. I think we should put it up to a vote. I think it helps the integrity of the minor league system.

Thanks Adam. I agree with you that you shouldn't pick in the the first rounds if you are keeping minor league players, it makes sense to me to do it the way you are describing.
