During a Live Draft what do U have at your side?

I'm really curious...I have a live draft coming up and it feels like I'm about to take an exam.

So what do you guys do?

thanks

I don't have anything by my side. Maybe my Cell Phone. No Cheet Sheets though. They seem to hurt my teams more than help while drafting a team live. + I've missed a few picks before by doing that.... :-t

I have to have the cheat sheets just to cross people off. But I keep BP next to me just in case I need to make a key decision.

Also I'll sometimes do some shots before hand. It helps to go in smashed.

I like to bribe a high school kid to sit next to me and keep track of who's been taken off the board and who's left. :-D

yeah i like to have my paper lists more than using a 'draft applet' to check who is gone -- also a magazine for reference and always have a few extra browser windows open to quick reference player news/stats

1. A magazine
2. scrap paper
3. my laptop

I have a magazine. Just one. whichever - i don't care honestly. I've already done so much preps I have all my players ranked in my head. but - in the heat of the moment its nice to get it off your mind and just read someone elses opinion to justify stuff

and I have a few sheets of scrap paper. this is to take notes with -
to remind myself who I plan to take with my next pick(s)

my laptop - I have an excel sheet - one page with tiny font with all the players ranked from 1-30. then I have a mini dollar estime next to their name.
thats on the left side - on the right I have a roster of all my keepers all my positions - and how much I expect to spend - it has formulas already built in saying this how much i've spent - how much I expect to spend at each position and gives me + or - values to tell me if I'mn over budget or under budget.....

sounds really complicated - but takes about ten seconds to cut and paste a players name into the spot, and his value - the computer does everything else for me. it is also linked with page two of the excel sheet - (which i don't look at till late in the draft) and automatically updates how many (HR, AVG, RBI, RUNS, SB etc I need to win each category - so later in the draft all I have to do is turn to page two on my excel sheet and it's already updated - IE AROD is prohjected to hit 40 HRs, it adds forty to my total, automatically just by me putting in his name. Took me about 3 weeks to perfect the sheet to where it would work correctly - but it's great now all I have to do is type in a players name and it automatically fills in their projections in the blanks and updates my expected team totals to tell me where i need to focus most attention. and it's almost effortless - I'm focusing on the draft - but yet I have the best tool ever right in front of me.

spend most of my time flipping thru the pages in the magazine and darkening in names from my list on my laptop page. super easy - no highliters required. just a pen to take notes if the moment gets heated or start coming too quickly.

what "most everyone" always does is focus on ranking the shit out of the top 25 players or the top five at each position - and not bother too much with the rest.

I figure the first three rounds whoever you get is the best guys at his position - so i don't bother too much time on those guys and spend twice as much time on the late rounds guys- . first few rounds.......I rank all the rest of the guys harder and focus less on the top 20 picks.
