Ok everyone! We're almost ready to go. Everyone has their keepers in except Free. I emailed him yesterday to remind him of the deadlines. I did take a look at his roster and his keepers look pretty clear-cut to me. I don't want to speak for him, but for those of you doing draft prep, might as well take these players off the board:
Matt Holliday (2)
Jered Weaver (4)
Nelson Cruz (11)
Justin Verlander (13)
Ben Zobrist (15)
As we move closer to the draft starting Friday, please make sure you keep your roster updated in the 2012 Rosters thread, and also verify that I have your keepers and rounds correct in the 2012 Draft Results thread. If anything is off, let me know.
We're going to start with a 24-hour clock when the draft starts. We'll officially start the draft Friday at noon EST, but I'll make the Round 1 thread on Thursday night and those who are ready can begin making their picks if they so choose.
Lastly, since Jags is the co-commish on Yahoo! and has offered to continue to help, I PM'd BK to make him also moderator of our forum again. Between us, we should be able to keep all the relevant threads updated. If not, I'll make someone else a moderator so we have full coverage.
