At this point in the draft I'll take it. Most of the other options are a crapshoot of some sort to save opps at all, rather than just having limited opportunities.

I like the Detroit handcuff too. You either want both or none IMO, and picking back-to-back makes that easy. ;-D

I tried to find some stats on most saves per win, but didn't have much luck. Last season the Cubs had the fewest saves with 28, then Toronto 29, and Houston 31. Oddly Toronto won 73 games and while they were the worst at .40 saves per win, the Angels and White sox were second and third worst respectively. Houston's .56 saves per win is shockingly good. Miami last season? .55 (38 saves in 69 wins). All that being said, you have to hope then that a closer nabs a huge chunk if not all of the saves on crappy teams.

The one nice thing about a complete crap team like Houston or Miami is that their offense is so bad that a lot of their wins will be close enough to generate save opps. A bad team with a good closer isn't the worst thing in the world.

Sorry for the delay fellas. I actually did stay up until 1am CST waiting to see if my pick would come up, but did the literal zonk-out with the phone on my chest thing (and I was like drooling all over it and stuff -- you know, deep sleep).

I should have just PM'd someone, but figured I would be awake for it. Of course, my #1 choice and #2 choice were McGee and Clippard, so when I got up this morning and saw that they had been taken right before my turn, I then didn't know what to do. :-C

I'm very serious about the RP I pick up you know! :-B

Pretty happy about McCann this late. By most accounts he should be back by mid-April. If he comes back as 80% of his old self he should out produce that draft slot ;-D

I vote we all give Red our cheatsheets and he makes the remaining picks for everyone. He's made 3 of the past 4 anyway. :-D

Hey guys, sorry I missed my timeframe! I had a whole bunch of emails yesterday for business, and Rounder's got lost in the shuffle. Just saw it going back through.

I'll catch it next time! Promise! ;-D

Forget cheatsheets, lets all just put a little trust in my volition. :-B

Hey...last time this thing got held up, I DID send my list! }:-) Jimmy can vouch for that! ;-D

This last time around? Well, it's kind of hard to send a list when you're really not expecting to be away from your computer. ;-7

Forgive me or not, it is what it is... :-]

DV PM'd me to make my 13th round pick, but he forgot to post his 12th round pick. I PM'd him back in case anyone is wondering what the hold up is.
