Now it could get interesting at 1pm today if Mark has not made his pick.  Do you hold off hoping he'll use the wildcard, or jump in with the cheapeast Bison on the board.  If it gets to 1:30 and no picks have been made, then it REALLY get's interesting.  At some point, someone will leap and decide a bird in hand (a cheaper Bison) is better than getting stuck with an expensive Bison that could play havoc with a roster.
Man, this is too much pressure. I feel like I'm at the final table of the WSOP and Phil Ivey is staring me down, haha
Looks like somebody is trying to play your hand for u. :-)

Once someone picks after a possible Rev slot, doesn't the 'Rev' become useless???

Once the owner's time slot passes, the Reverse can't be played. From the rules:

REVERSE CARDS- (1 per player) When played, You can SWITCH the current team that’s up for that Round to a different team. Everyone after you in that Round will pick a player from the team you Reversed it to.  REVERSE CARDS MUST be played prior to or during your timeslot.

With no other reverses preceding his pick, markdidonato could play his reverse any time from now through 1:00. After 1:00, he gets a Beautiful Bison! I'll be tossing out a reverse at about 1:01, unless nap time interferes with it :)

Just to ease the tension a little bit...I have heard from Mark this morning and he is playing a reverse....however he is undecided on who he is playing....down to two different teams....I have a proxy pick for him in case he does not show up in time....

Yes, I guess with gbbaker unable to take this player (no reverse or wild card), we can proceed and save SportsCenter from 24 hour coverage of the speculation of who we'll pick.  

We will reverse to the California Angels with our 12:30pm pick and select C Butch Wynegar 

Those picking after me may send a six pack of your favorite microbrew to Tallahassee in the attention of Mark DiDonato as a token of your gratitude.

I don't mind picking, but I want to make sure I don't pick anyone that can still be taken.  There are still two potential Reverse cards to be played, I believe.

As long as you take a guy they cannot possibly reverse to you are good to go.  Well, once gbakker makes his wild card pick that is..

With my reverse, I'll go with the Toledo "Everyone Run Crying To Your" Maumees and the immortal Tub Welch as a backup catcher/fashion consultant/hair stylist.

That's true.  In my example above, no picks have been made yet.
9/5/2013 11:24 AM
It doesn't matter whether picks have been made. Once 1:30 rolls around, the Reverse can no longer be played for the 1:00 pick.
