    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.

                        ---16 participants would be better than 14, but we'd probably need to find
                        the other 2 people quickly before we start the second round.

                          CLD has already PMed two people, and has given them a deadline to respond, so this should be finalized fairly quickly.

                          Also, I'm not sure, but I think the two drafts will actually be two separate drafts, much like our AL/NL before (although I think they'll both be using AL rules, to make it easier for them to be compared to each other).

                            I'm fine with two 7 or 8 team leagues. One bigger league makes it more of a challenge to find great players. Two smaller leagues allows people to have more glittering all-timers, which is sort of the "spirit" of such a draft, in some sense.

                            So I see either one as good.

                              I'd prefer two 7 or 8 team leagues. The draft should run a bit faster that way, as people would be less likely to forget it's their pick.

                                yeah we should go with 2 leagues and probably should have 2 threads for each league so it wont be confusing in here and saying "i already got him a round earlier"...
