    Which is why I figure with the teams I want, I can find enough good pitchers.

    Some interesting picks so far.... I had the Braves ranked #1 on my list and was delighted to be able to snag them with my 4th pick. 3 of the top 9 teams on my draft board are still available including the 4th best team. Of course I have no false illusions of anything close still being available at the 27th pick. If I can land a team ranked in the 21-25 range on my board I'll be extremely pleased with the results.

    Reds have everything at every position 'cept pitchers.

    Yeah, Morgan/Larkin is going to be a sweet keystone combination.

    I had the Braves #2 on my list - but I had the Giants at #1. Very good pitchers 1-5, decent bullpen, decent at every position, not to mention Mays and Bonds.

    I did a crapshoot basically...no research. I did so much stuff for the all time one I just winged this one. Big Red Machine was too good too pass up. Sox were #1, then Giants. Orioles were a great pick too.

    I hate to SPAM (sort of) but while we're waiting for the drafts to wrap up, I've started a pretty cool league, using RBI baseball. You can play it right from your PC: http://www.baseball-fever.com/showthread.php?t=58834

    I'm pretty sure it can work on anyone who has a fast internet connection PC. Although I need someone here to test it with me.

    I had the Athletics as a top-four franchise, considering a rich talent base in the 70s, 80s and 00s. Especially if we can use best seasons. Check out, for example, Vida Blue's best season.

    I had them at about number 5. IIRC, a lot of their players played the same positions, which hurts. But they are certainly still a good pick.

    I actually had the Braves at #1. I had the Jays at #7 (Clemens, Molitor, Stieb, Alomar), so I was thrilled to get them at #14. Pick in a sec.... just need to double-check some things.

    If a player played for two different teams, he could be picked for both teams, right? Even if one person controls both teams?

    Yes (too short).

    They're definitely a good team, but #7? Seems a bit high, to me...
