    Actually, THAT kinda speed is atypical.

    Yeah, you're gonna think ALL drafts have NO time limits . . .
    . . . which would have come in REAL handy about now!

    I'm generally sure who I want (Pop Lloyd), but I really struggle with who to blacklist
    How about Rickey Henderson?

    Wow, you really hate Shortstops, eh? I'm not sure what you hope to accomplish by banning all of them - except make whoever picked A-Rod happy... I guess you could have somebody that you think is a super sleeper, but a lot of times people discover (to their horror) that their sleeper gets taken right before they wanted to take him.

    Well, there goes my strategy on selecting a top-rung SS or 3B.

    It's fun to know you've devastated someone with your pick, huh? That we've had so many responses indicating so this early is a testament to the draft's success so far.

    I'm not really concerned about the pace of the draft. The participants are mostly regular posters. If anyone has to leave for a significant period, let us know so we can try to work something out to keep things going for everyone else without unfairly wrecking the absentee's draft.

    I'll take Jose Alberto Pujols
    I'll blacklist Wade Boggs

    If I can't have a top 4-5 3B, than nobody (else) can. I am regretting not having any middle-infielders yet. I resolve to chose a SS or 2B next regardless....

    Probably neither. He'll probably blacklist them both.

    Ha!


    Okay, I'm taking Bob Gibson and blacklisting Smokey Joe Williams.

    Well, I'll take the guy who appears to be the best position player still available- Mel Ott.

    I thought I might sneak by and get Pujols, who I really wanted, but....

    Okay, who to blacklist? Carl Yastrzemski.
