So my question is....if trout is as good as they say he is, does this mean that the the guy who just drafted him forefits his next round??????....lol...lol... :-b :-b

Will try to leave picks when / where possible to keep it moving.


Just as a heads up, I'm away for around 24-36 hours for work abroad Tues and Weds and not sure on internet access during that time. I'll see how the draft progresses before then to see if I need to leave picks.


Not sure what to think about pick 3. The top 2 are clear, but could consider a number of guys at 3. Took Goldy as a pretty safe floor hopefully, but could easily have gone a different way...


We actually aren't "officially" starting until the 17th...at least that's when the 12 hour clock comes into effect anyway...so no rush at this time.

I might of got the worst spot of the draft as far as the first round goes...all options here are scary and I get stuck choosing the first of them... :-/

I would have loved Braun 7th. Torn now because I could go in several directions. Hmm...

I think #3 is the worst spot. It's a tier of 2 and then the rest of the of the first round imo.

I would agree with this. I wouldn't say #3 is the worst spot but the top 2 guys are in a tier of their own, nobody can match up to miggy and trout or even close.

Well, there are guys who can...it's a matter of them staying healthy for a whole year though...Braun, CarGon, Hanley...maybe a couple others.

I meant that more in terms of the draft and not actual ability. I think Braun and CarGo could potentially be on the same tier as Miggy and Trout but their risks are wayyyy too great. Therefore they can't match up, draft-wise.

Anyone up for using our Cafe names as our team names on Yahoo?
