    I have some reservations about this pick, there are others who fit my team much more, but he's by far the best player available (and one of my favorites-I would know), so I'll go with Jimmy Wynn.

    Geez, I hope my pick didn't give JW a stroke!

    --It actually left him with 2 of his "big 6" at pick #7. Your window is actually up JW, so please break the suspense.

    He was the other choice in my spot. It was between him and John, and I need pitching. Hated to bypass him, though!

    --Good choice, JW. Willie the Wonder was a favorite of mine as a kid. Perhaps we can deal.

    "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham
