    Was out all day yesterday and today. Lee Smith, 1988-91

    What are the official rules as far as starting and relieving eligibility? I'll take Joe Wood, 1909-15 if he has to be a starter, 1910-13 if he can just be a reliever.

    What do you want EB??? If Smokey Joe finished a lot of games then he can be your long man... If I was you, I would go with his 4 year peak as a SP/RP where he can spot start if needed but be in the bullpen most of the time.

    Actually, I think they were about the same because I lettered in all sports, and I was a two-time state decathlon champion.

    My sophomore year I placed 2nd, and my junior and senior year - I got smart and piled up enough points between myself and second place where I didn't have to run the mile.

    Yeah, that's what I want. Four year peak, SP/RP.

    Oddly enough I was going to ask about the SP/RP issue for my next pick- who is also a Wood. However, he was a total reliever for several years and then a total starter, so I'm not sure how many years to take, since I will use him as long relief primarily, but also occasionally as a fifth starter- so four years? Five? Six?

    I'll start with four- Wilbur Wood, 1968-1971

    okay, now I'm confused. You're taking Greenberg from 1934-1946. he only played 12 games in 1936 and 19 in 1941, fine, but he played 78 games in 1945- that's half a season. So you're taking six full seasons, a half season, and two partial seasons? This brings me back to the Mark McGwire issue-

    if you're doing that then I can definitely change McGwire's years from 94-2000 to 92-99 since his 93 and 94 together were only about a half season, right? That was my plan from the beginning.

    I'm also a little uncertain about your including three injured seasons for Greenberg- I mean he actually played more than half a season in 1945. It seems to me that that should count as one of his seven.

    Otherwise, I don't see why I can't count McGwire all the way from 92-2000. I mean, he played a little more than half a season in 2000, and had two partial seasons in 93 and 94, same idea as Greenberg, right?

    Oops I screwed up there... The peak should've been 1934-1940 in the first place but I was thinking that was only 6 years for some dumb reason so I had 1946 there. Maybe it was cuz I made the picks at 4 AM. Sorry for the confusion.

    No, Greenberg and McGwire are different... Greenberg went to WW2 in 1941 and came back on 1945 so that's the exception there and that's why I had 1946. Greenberg was only injured in 1936. McGwire was just injured in almost all of his career so it's not the same idea. So if I went 1935 for Greenberg, his 1946 season would be included and you take out 1941 and 1945 as if it never happened. It was like Pete Alexander in 1918.

    My pick is another guy who's going to be mostly long relief- Eddie Cicotte 1913-1919.

    Don't worry, if I make the post season he'll ride the bench.

    I'm a little confused hw long I should be waiting. Do I count 16 hours for Sam since he has two picks, or just the eight. Anyhow, it's been 24 hours and we're on round 20something, so it should be okay.

    PH, PR, backup infield John McGraw 1895-1901.

    I guess this means I'll have Mcgraw as my manager too.

    Deleted post... you're right. STBF doesnt have the time limit because he didn't make his last 2 picks. So mwiggins is skipped and it is your turn.
