    You do have both catchers taken, and all your quizy pain is behind you (heh, heh). You do need 2 MI, hard to believe you only have two hitters left. Will be an interesting finish.

    I did almost pick Rose with my second R wildcard last time.
    I almost took Rose too but when you roll out of bed at 3:00 am you let the picks Rip.

    It was difficult. Looked for letters + franchises, and did some with the Era restrictions. Did NOT look for positions, so everyone who needs C and MI are probably pumped up a little more than they should. And Iím sure some have too many DP or CHs, but thatís usually better for those teams too.

    Pretty much just gave everyone the benefit of the doubt. Some bad letters we know will just get shelved in pitching. Used the strategies for those I already knew.

    Still, itís just a basis, unlike last draft, where I didnít do projections and tried something different, and it was disastrous.

    I can say this: thereís going to be a battle at some letters. Some will win, others will lose. It looked like one particular letter/franchise combo was needed by a few teams.

    Oh, and Heye wins in a walkover!

    I need one MI :goesandchecks:. Yup, only one (Utley & Zobrist).

    Not loving this next pick; even for a ratio-punter like me that WHIP is a real eyesore. But N is swiftly becoming a vast desert, so here goes.

    although I gotta say I have no idea how to predict some of the pitching choices coming up, so perhaps a wide range of outcomes. Lots of other variables too. This is crazy

    He is a ratio tank essential. Hell, it's even more fun if you go for the big K season he had--1938. 20 wins and 226 K with a 5.08 ERA and a 1.596 WHIP---yikes!
