    It would appear that Ron's time has expired (as my last post was a make-up pick). Hence, we'll go with Ken Griffey Jr. as our next selection

    The Dark Knight is the best movie I've ever seen.

    I'll take Sandy Koufax.

    Let's see if the next player I want makes it to my pick.

    I'm back- give me 5 minutes and I'll make my picks- whatever's left.

    Sorry guys- I got on yesterday at the local library about 3 PM EST. Unfortunately their internet connection was out- had been all day- maybe due to the bad storms. That was my only shot. Sorry again.

    So, now that every player I wanted/planned to take is gone, I'll go with

    Reggie Jackson

    and

    Steve Carlton.

    RMB has until 7:09 PM EST.

    BTW, you can refer to the first post in this thread if you're wondering who's been chosen. All players are listed under the letter of their last name (in bold). As the draft continues, it helps you keep track.

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! 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 4th and 5th pick of the draft, Key Obezags select Mike Piazza...



    and

    Wade Boggs...

    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.

    Looks like Yogi Berra sneaks by, starting his MLB career in 1946.

    Okay, Brad's been up for about 45 minutes. Right now is my only shot at the computer until tomorrow, so I'm going to PM my next 2 picks- 5 and 6- to Tyrus and RMB. If one of them would post my picks when the time comes I'd appreciate it. See you tomorrow.

    Sorry, Ron. Stinking meeting. If only my employer recognized how inconvenient that 9-5 is! Wasting no more time, it's my pleasure to announce the selection of Eddie Mathews.

    BigRon wants Jackie Robinson, followed by Duke Snider.

    The board turns attention to Mr. Harris once more.

    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.

    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
