A wide smile and perfect hair
He had complete control of the rising tides
And a medicine bag hanging at his side

In the flowing blue world of the death-dealing physician


Yeah sorry for being bad the last few rounds, they've all come in the daytime when I can't really pick

Two hours. You don't get extra time when you have back to back picks and I'm pretty sure that's in the OP of the draft thread.

We're almost there, guys.

E: :lol: It looks like BP tried to prematurely retire Bobby Abreu as he was omitted from their PECOTA spreadsheet. (Probably an accident since plenty of other retired players are in there but kind of funny anyway)

I just realized that I botched the chance to make a perfect pick at 666 and it makes me sad.

e: I cleaned out round 25 since we're almost there but I made a separate tab to save the greatness

I'm going to wait and see how the first couple updates go before I do a set schedule, but it will take me a little while I'm sure to even get all the teams set up once we finish the draft so you have plenty of time. If anyone wants to start sending me their team settings, lineups, rotation, etc so I can get a head start feel free.

If the lightning round ends up starting after like 4pm on the 4th I might just push it back to starting on the 5th so we can all go blow poo poo up without worrying about our joke picks.

Assuming the last five teams make their picks tonight (I am going to pick after I get home around 6 central) I'll still start it off in the morning, though. Maybe at Noon ESDSTDTSTSDT instead of Ten though to give the west coasters a little bit of a break.

Is there a simple way to sort position players by handedness on fangraphs or bbref? I'm not good at dealing with either's UI.

(or rather, filter handedness and then sort by WAR or some other metric)

So, for the lightning round, are we just putting the picks as fast as we want in the main draft tab, or in that second "best round" tab that's already full of bullshit?

Yeah I looked him up and was like "well, ok, seems legit" but there's no card for me to unretire him from in my searches.

Not me! My team comes in at $58 million in 2014 salary going by Cot's. I assume the White Sox will have the lowest.
