I remember him well since I didn't get him. He went first pick I believe one year (there was a huge Indian's fan in my league.) I had Randy Johnson and Frank Thomas the year I missed a first place tie by only 1 point.

Yeah, the internet has made things so much easier and faster. I'm spoiled with the instant updates and I'm not sure I could go back to the once a week standings in the mail. Ah, the good old days. :-)

Hey Madison...I am putting your post numbers in perspective. I figure each of your 19,569 posts written means that you have read about 189, 669. Or more?

I remember the old pencil leagues. in 1991, all of the guys in my hometowner got access to email through the old telnet system. That year, we went to daily line-up changes, but the commish still kept all the stats on paper, and he emailed the standings on Sunday. These days, any old Joe can be a commish, but then, a commish had to be both committed and a bit anal. I remember dreading the year it was my turn to be the commish, only to find that my appreciation for fbb grew as a result.

I remember in my first draft, back in the day, I took a chance on a up and coming rookie 3B in Cleveland...Jim Thome. I think he had a small cup of coffee in the show that year.
