    --Foster is nearly worthless over the 6 years under club control, but I would have taken him with the first pick of the 3rd anyway if I thought I could re-sign him. Having already picked Harrah in the 1st though I didn't think I'd be able to hold on to both in the same FA market.

      • Sorry, Mark. I misread what you had put up for the Dude. I thought his clock started at 11AM, not ended. I would've made this pick hours ago otherwise!

        The Legends, with their first pick of the 1969 rookie draft, choose catcher

        JOHN ELLIS

        Ellis is, IMHO, the best remaining player left, and I don't think it's even real close taking his position into consideration. I'm totally surprised that a guy who can be a decent backup two years, a platoon partner two years, and an almost everyday catcher for two years, with a decent bat, wasn't grabbed by somebody yet.

        • Ellis was the guy I was trying to move up to get. Figured he wouldn't last much longer. Great pick at this stage of the draft Lew!

          • That should put Appletonia and the Diablos on the clock til 1:52 AM.

              Very good pick with Ellis. Was certainly on my short list. Didn't think he'd fall to me at 47 though. Four seasons that he can be an asset to a team. The fact he catches might set him apart as the best remaining player. Nice choice Lew!

              • Just relooked the long-term outlook for my squad and it's definately built for the short-term. I only have 6 players signed through 1972 and 3 of them should be subs that year. Nothing like putting pressure on the 70-71 drafts to fill out a roster in 72.

                    Like I said, I misread what Mark had put up about Dude. I thought his clock started at 11AM, not ended. So I waited an extra six hours, worrying the whole time he would take Ellis with his pick. Boy, would I have been upset with myself if Dude had picked him after 11 but before I figured out it was actually my pick!

                    On a different note, nice to see you present, Jim! Hope you get a bit more time to work on your team. I know you've been very busy at work and commuting.

                          Trying to unload some salary...Pepitone is at 8.75 but provides some pop at first and in the outfield...looking to trade for either a 3B, a rookie pick this year and a player, or a pick in the 70 draft.

                          We also have Jerry May / Catcher and Ken Berry...both at 5,000,000

                            • Immediate help

                              --For anybody looking for immediate help there are some players who contribute this season who have been passed over in favor of players with bigger futures. Which is understandable since each of these is a one year wonder:cap:. Still there is a very good SP, a couple very good LH set up men and an everyday 3B still on the board. Also a decent SP and a decent reliever who have at least some future value, although less than some others who don't contribute this year. You could have a bundle of cash using a 3rd rounder (or maybe even a 4th) instead of trying to fill those holes in free agency.
