Good surreal banter, always a good sign in a new league...

We are missing only rhinokb's pick and can then start Round 2. 
7/9/2014 5:01 AM
rhinokb drafts back to back from pre-1990 Cal in the first 2 rounds - he wont hold anyone up.

Has he opend the sitemails??
7/9/2014 9:08 AM (edited)
No, he hasn't and if that goes on for a while longer I will contact the person on the waiting list. I know we are all anxious to keep drafting, and you are right grayfoxx, technically it doesn't hold anyone up. 

Let's hold off for a little while and I will sitemail everyone when it seems like enough time has passed today to just let the rest of us go at it. 

I would like to know if we need to replace an owner or not first before two whole rounds of picks are in.

I'm anxious for my 3rd round pick.  There is one guy that I think is possibly the 2nd best player in the sim...but plays a position with lots of quality HOF'ers - there are also 2 very good HOF pitchers that I would love to get...but who does Shawbigred take? Who am I torn between??  Hmmm well let's finish round 2 so I can start tormenting over round 3!

I think you're wondering who I am going to take actually, if you're talking about Texarkana. The top level talent in that region is great.
7/9/2014 11:38 AM
FYI, guys, I'm the backup in case rhinokb doesn't show. Rhino, if you come back and read this, kudos to you - enjoy the team!

If not, I'm read to roll as soon as italyprof gives me the heads up....

7/9/2014 11:56 AM
No sign of our missing owner. No sitemails opened. I don't want to hold up a whole league for someone who may have changed his mind. I will put rhinokb on the waiting list in case he does show up. 

I have invited crazyamos to take this spot in the league as he was waiting with enthusiasm for joining and says he is ready with his picks. So he and the rest of us can make our picks any time today.

Ryno, I think I know what hitter you're talking about. But I'm going pitching with this pick....

New York - P Warren Spahn(1946)
7/9/2014 12:08 PM
Yep, it was hard not taking spahn or other pitchers last round. The picks get more interesting now as the rounds build up - less predictable.

You are right. The top tier players are insane in that region. Good luck! Ha
