    --So who gets your franchise tag. Wil?
    --Garry, I am still interested in the 5th pick if your guy is gone. My offer will be slightly less with Blue out of the picture though.

I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

        Great pickup.

        Oh, and I'm foregoing the franchise tag. Blue has too many non-seasons, rough seasons, etc. for $12M per year to prove valuable.

            I am willing to trade down (from 8th or 13th) to a very low 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder or 2 high second rounders. PM me ASAP

              --Had your heart set on Carbo did you? That was a shocker for me. I had him on my 2nd round wish list.

                Dang, I should've kept my pick. My #1 target (different from my draft board in that these are guys who I think could realistically be on my team) is definitely going to last to #10.

                  Might come as more of a shock to you that your #1 player was the same as ours. Carbo was 2nd on our draft card. He's exactly what we were looking for in a player. Top of the order hitter that gives us five very useful seasons from 70-74 including a great '70 season when we will be looking to make a serious title run.

                    Vida, right? That '71 is just flat out massive. Chuck him into a solid rotation with a respectable offense and it could spell trouble for the other 15 owners.

                      Trade:

                      The Skipjacks have sent their 12th overall pick to the Knights for the rights to the 22nd overall pick (via the Diablos) and the 32nd overall pick (via the Legends).

                      Mark, if you would confirm, thanks...

                        --Confirmed. This takes some of the incentive off a few other deals I've been discussing. If I've been negotiating with you on a deal involving picks please check back with me if you're still interested. The offer may or may not still be open. If I haven't been talking to you and you pick between now and the 12th pick I may be interested in trading up. If you're interested in trading down let me know.

                            Hadn't been able to check in for a couple of days. Interesting picks. Evans would likely have been my top pick were I an expansion owner- either him or Fisk. Both lock up a position for a long, long time. And both are excellent defenders with a good amount of pop in their bats. Carbo has a great run and is a decent pick, but he was lower on my list. Of course, priorities matter, and mine are different than Garry's at this point.

                              I want to thank all who replied to my offer to trade the 7th pick.

                              None of the offers really help me long term so I will pass and take my chances in the draft.

                                Looks like we're stuck. EH hasn't even checked in here in a week and a half.
