    The power of Roger Clemens will be doubly awesome for my team... I'll take the Astros.

    Hated to do it, but I'm trying to focus mostly on pitching. So now I get Clemens' two best years (1997 and 2005), Roy Oswalt, Dave Stieb, and three top-notch closers in Henke, Ryan, and Lidge. The hitting side won't be quite as strong, but I don't think anyone can match my big two of Clemens and Clemens.

    And I can put pretty much anyone and Bob Gibson's 1968 and that's pretty tough

    All right. So Pedro and Clemens is better than Clemens and Clemens.

    All right, this is what my gut says I should take, and I'm not looking back:

    Texas Rangers

    Several players are on the tradign block for my team:

    Dave Winfield, Bobby Mercer (check out those peak years in center), Bernie Williams, Reggie Jackson, Jason Giambi, and anyone of my 3 catchers (Howard, Munson, Posada). I also have some extra quality relievers I could be persuaded to include in a deal. In exchange we're looking for quality starting pitching and perhaps an upgrade at second base.

    I made a roster thread, so go ahead and put it there.

    538280's time has passed. I'll take the Pirates.
    The last pick was 9 pm PST, so his clock won't run out for a while.

    Are we not using the same 8 hour rules as we are in the AL and NL drafts? I didn't see it written anywhere that we werent. Going by those time rules, his time has passed.

    We are - but we're also using the closed window, where everything is paused.

    Well, go look at the rules in the draft details page. The time between 10 PM CDT and 10 AM CDT counts, the window just cant close between that period. That's why I said, going by those rules, his time has passed.

    Wade, can we trade players who would be on our team, but not the 25-man roster?

    Also, check out my bullpen. Then try and tell me an early pick has a huge advantage.

    Two things, Erik. It makes me sick to my stomach to see you using the Astros. And secondly, you can't use Nolan's 1981. He didn't have 160 IP.

    Right - I somehow forgot about the rule change. My fault...

    Wade, can we trade players who would be on our team, but not the 25-man roster?
    Of course. We don't know who would be on your 25 man roster, so if you trade them, we can't say if they were on your roster or not. In fact, you can just put them on your roster on the bench, then trade them away, if that mattered.

    Also, check out my bullpen. Then try and tell me an early pick has a huge advantage.
    I never said that an early pick has a huge advantage in this draft. I said they have a huge advantage if we allow all years.

    And I've also got a good bullpen (and very good rotation, and great lineup).

    Twins and White Sox together? Excuse my while I cringe.
    (fantasy football)
    JM: Only did that for a couple of years and then we had a conspiracy so it kind of turned me sour. Our league's commissioner, Lew Ford(notes) at the time, was doing some shady things that ... I'd rather not talk about [laughs].
    DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
    JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].

    I'm curious - why do you say that?

    I understand they are a reach...but I have my lineup filled out, plus they have 3 great starters and a 202 OPS+ thrid basemen.

    BTW, I'd like to suggest we make the DH a requirement. I'm sure there's going to be at least one person on everyone's team they can't find a spot for on the field, so a DH would be a perfect fit.

    Paul Molitor can start! Woo hoo!

    Ronnie, fixed Ryan as well Richard and Halladay not meeting requirements. Replaced them with Stieb, Oswalt, and Dierker. Still great pitching, but not amazingly great.
