    I'm a little surprised that Mathews lasted as long as he did. I see him as about the 20th- 21st- 22nd- 23rd best MLer of all time, and not very far behind Mike Schmidt at 3B.

I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    With our 6th and 7th pick of the draft, Key Obezags select Rod Carew...

    Derek Jeter...

    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.

    For reasons known, Dickey came up in the 1920s, not after WW2. Try again.

    Damn. I get tied up and look what happens.

    My whole world is rocked, but I'll settle for Jeff Bagwell.

    For my round 7 pick: Ryne Sandberg

    Continuing the run on 3Bmen, I'll take Chipper Jones.

    He wants to see what has transpired before naming his next pick. Still not sure why he had me do one though

    Okay, I'm back- sorry for the delay. Thanks for posting my R7 pick, RMB.

    I need another right handed power hitter. I was hoping that Bagwell would last, but he didn't, so I'll take

    Harmon Killebrew,

    one of the great home run champions.

    Brad, it's back to you.

    Hmmm, an interesting strategy, Brad. A roster of position players and closer(s). Mind you, I'm not suggesting your strategy is flawed- just- interesting, to date.

    Since he's only picked one closer, it could be that it just kinda turned out that way. If he picks another closer or two, that's when things get interesting, IMO.

    I'll take Willie McCovey

    My "strategy" (such as it is) has a lot to do with what I perceive are the marginal differences between players already taken at a position and those remaining. The top tier of starting pitchers is already gone and the difference between the cream of those left and the next tier down isn't so big. Rivera is the best reliever in history - if you notice, I've tried to grab the #1 at an available position as much as possible - and when not possible, have looked at marginal difference between best available candidate and others at a given position. TBH, Roberts was my next pick, but (as has happened to us all) my hand was forced by the unfolding of events.

    I'll take Robin Yount. Now we wait to see if my next choice makes it.

    Splinter has about an hour left. Shall I post a roster thread?
