6th round pick: Rube Waddell, 1902

Next pick is forthcoming


7th round pick: Mickey Cochrane, 1931

Unbelievable, you took both of my next two picks.

We shall meet again!

LOL. Actually, I really wanted at least one modern player out of that pair, but that particular year for Rube just looked too good to pass up.

I was frankly amazed Waddell was still available. I would have taken him with my last pick, but with Brett and Mathews disappearing, I felt Santo was a must-pick to keep my third base competitive.

I am interested to see a Gold Glove count on AlecBoy's team, if nothing else that will be quite a figure.

By my count, after 7 picks, his team has 84 gold gloves.

Minstrel, did we agree that we were going to put that 10-15 minute time limit for tonight, and if you dont make your pick, you're skipped? I think we should finalize that before it starts. Since everyone agreed to be there for it, I dont think it should be a problem, and we certainly don't want to have everyone waiting around for someone to show up after they said they'd be here for it.

I'll be working at that time but logged on. I'll try not to go over 15 min. between picks, and chances are I won't.

Minstrel
02-15-2007, 01:19 PM
Yes, let's make it official, since everyone is in. 15 minute windows per pick during the lightning round.

The other question we need answered is when does the lighting round end? What's the latest time people can continue? I'm on the West Coast, so I doubt I'll be the limiter. I'd ideally like to see it go 2-3 hours, but that may be too much / too late for some, if we're starting at 8 PM on the east.

Sing out with how late you can stay, and we'll determine a stopping point.

Erik Bedard
02-15-2007, 01:28 PM
Since I've got no school tomorrow (and haven't had it since Monday thanks to a snowstorm), I can probably stay on until about 10:30, or 7:30 over there. If I have to leave earlier than that, I'll send somebody a list.

Westlake
02-15-2007, 01:30 PM
I can pretty much stay as long as necessary.

9:30 Maximum for me...I have a big test tomorrow, and that takes priority over this (sorry to say).

Westlake
02-15-2007, 01:32 PM
I think 9:30 should be the cutoff, if we can go any further, we can. Because if we go too long, we are going to be skipping people that weren't aware how long this was supposed to last.

Okay. Considering Kyle has a test and has to go at 9:30, we'll cut it off there. Which basically means, it's back to eight-hour windows at that point. But if people can stick around and make more picks, excellent.

I don't mean to come off as a jerk, but if Kyle is the only one who can't do at least two hours, is it possible that he PM someone his picks once he has to leave? Kyle is this possible?

BTW The Sopranos used to be the best show on TV.

You guys have terrible choice in shows. :p

Lets get this show on the road, fellas!

Not a big TV watcher at all, don't watch much other than sports. Can't really say there's any TV show I watch...just catch whatever game happens to be on.

Westlake
02-15-2007, 05:00 PM
If you want some good entertainment... Scrubs tonight at 9, 8 Central on NBC.

(they should be paying me for the advertisement)

Andy yes Minstrel, I catch the Daily Show and Colbert Report darn near everynight. And Conan as often as possible.

Minstrel
02-15-2007, 05:01 PM

Not big on Scrubs but than again I didn't watch it when it first started. But other that that you're right on.

Nope, he confirmed that he'd be here.

BTW, a rule we had in the CPFD and the second ATFD was that a person couldn't be on the clock for two picks at once. Should we implement that here?

If you have two picks, you should get 30 minutes to make both of them. These 15 minute windows disappear fast.

Wade8813

I disagree...we may be wrapping this up in a couple of hours total...15 minutes is 1/8th of that. 15 minutes is plenty, even for two picks.

Minstrel

Well, yes. These things tend to be damaging to people who agree to be here and then don't show up (Huntington Ave did show up, so this doesn't apply to him). Otherwise, we could lose up to half the lightning rounds getting 10 picks in 10 minutes, waiting 15 minutes for someone, getting 16 more in half an hour, waiting 15 minutes for the same person, etc.
