    All-Time Draft Rematch: Discussion

    Don't post your picks here.

    (See the 'DRAFT PAGE' for the picks taken)
    _______________________________________________

    Since I'm first, I'll take Babe Ruth (1920-1924)

    Wade... just so you know... you probably might want to say the years also... and put the draft order in your first post...

    as for me with the 2nd pick... while i don't like him as a person, but i can't deny what he did on the field... even if he had help.


    I'll take Barry Bonds (2000-2004)...

    Ugh. Ninth overall pick isn't going to get me one of the top guys. Strangely, I've always had luck with these drafts as far as getting one of the top picks go, never drafting lower than fourth.

    Quick question: How many players will we be drafting?

    I guess I can make one in my initial post.

    It was a tough decision for me between Wagner and Hornsby, I pretty much flipped a coin in my head.

    Really, you couldn't go wrong with either. Both would have been tremendous picks.

    I initially was leaning Walter, but like you, I just couldn't pass on a marquee middle infielder.

    You can't go wrong with Walter at #5, either. His 5 year peak just dwarfs all other pitchers.

    I actually wanted Hornsby to still be around for me to pick him. I was so dissapointed when I saw was taken. His five year peak is by far and away better than every other 2nd baseman.
    But yeah, Walter ain't no slouch either.

    AstrosFan was just posting! Why didn't he pick?
    Hey, this is my public apology for suddenly disappearing and missing out on any projects I may have neglected.

    IMPORTANT - CLD changed his mind. This entire post was a waste. Ignore it.

    So then...should we halt selections until that is resolved?

    Erik can make a pick. And PhilKid probably could too, although there's a 50% chance that PhilKid's pick won't count, and instead PhilKid will have the first pick in the other draft. Everyone else's picks don't matter, since they'll be dropped.

    Is everybody okay with two seven team leagues?

    Cool with me. I'll take Greg Maddux (1994-98). Should I make another pick?

    No, not yet. We don't know if we're going to have 7 or 8 teams per league. You might not have the last pick.

    --Does 2 leagues mean 2 drafts? We'll be picking from the same pool of players, just breaking into 2 pieces to compete. If we run separate drafts I'd bet that things get confused and players end up getting drafted by teams in both. I'd say we just keep going. Of course, as a last minute addition to the process I'll go along with whatever way you want to do it.
