Albert Belle.


With that pick i think I have my team name choices down to Breaking Fernando Vina or the Joey Belle Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings
**** yeah. Ran into Billy D Williams in June at Disneyworld. He was signing for Star Wars weekend. When he rolled by in his rascal, I yelled out at him, Hey, it's Bingo Long! He stopped the scooter, turned around and said, that was a great movie. Flashed a big smile, waved and rolled on his way. Made my weekend.

Re: Kimbrel....can we take players in this round on teams that have already been used? I thought it was any player available from a team not used?

awesome story Tainter  :-)) 

...as a waiter in Chicago back in the day I had the pleasure of meeting & waiting on a few ballplayers… Kyle Farnsworth came in a couple of times with some woman with her breasts nearly hanging out onto her plate a couple of times. Kerry Wood was cool as hell- him & Matt Clement were eating dinner @ Adobo a couple times when I was there…ran into like half the Cubs team at a Sushi joint after a Sunday day game in late summer 2003 in what should have been their World Series Championship season… Wood, Cleement, Prior, Alex Gonzolaz, Joe Borowski. I forget who else…that was pretty cool. Coolest musician I ever met was Dave Grohl on a snowy Saturday night @ Uncle Julios Hacienda- we were busy as hell and he was just sipping on margaritas at the bar by himself wearing a "Witness Relocation" t-shirt, lol…I shook his hand and think I said something stupid like "cool meeting you- keep on rockin’ man!"

...probably some better 3B/CF choices out there for the $7.1 I have left...but since I ended up with 3 shortstops I'm gonna try Hughie Jennings & his A+ range out in CF and go with the 1992 San Diego Padres model of

Gary Sheffield- 3B

Never played an Uno league before.  It was an interesting and fun experience drafting, although I was concerned things might fall apart near the end.  Thanks to Todd for all his hard work put into this and efforts in trying be fair during difficult circumstances.  I learned a lot during the draft if I decide to try this again.  Just by pure luck of positioning I didn't end up eating a lot of dead salary at the end.  I'm using a lot of players I've never tried before including the 700 IP Silver King.  After I drafted him I realized that he wasn't doing too well in the current league playing.  I also went with fewer quality IP than I usually would  for a 120 level thinking this may play out more like a 110 cap.  Going to take some time to think about it before posting ballpark selection.  Good luck guys!

cool - thanks for playing ellery !  Hope you had fun with the draft...I've seen Silver King dominate in $120 caps...sometimes it's just the luck of the draw with a lot of these players.  The sim seems to have some guys that almost always perform & others that are hit or miss season to season, but I guess that's why they play the games :-))

Not many pitchers perform well in UNO, partly because when you have to grab talent where you can, it can be easier to get two very good platoon players than to get one solid starter at a few positiions. Best WHIPs for SP in the current version are 1.08 for Maddux and 1.09 for Johnson. Joss is at 1.18 in a pitcher's park. Pedro's at 1.14. And when looking at Silver's stats, remember that he's throwing in Wrigley. 1.41/4.11 isn't at all bad there at $120M.

Round 25: Sam Thompson - OF

I'm just going to go ahead and choose Petco for my stadium.  I don't hold the rest of the league up and that it the most sense for my team.
