Geography League Draft Order Topic

This league has had the best draft I've ever seen, great picks, so much strategy, so many trades, and great debate about baseball and everything else beside baseball. If I had more time I would love to be adding my (relatively) uneducated opinion to these debates. Instead I will add my pick shortly and try not to hold us up anymore going forward. I finally have internet at my house and my desk set up in my office (aka our living room--aka our guest room).

Gavvy Cravath OF 1908

Crushed the ball for his era, not sure what he will do in this league. But scouting hitters is way quicker than scouting pitchers. Considering my gf is on her way home from her friends right now, I'll take the hitter and call it a day.

Before ever going to my first baseball game and watching Seattle beat the Tigers 4-3, and before joining in on people still going nuts over a sophomore-season Ichiro, my life was all about the Ninja Turtles movie, the 1990 one, not the crappy ones with Vanilla Ice or time machines. I'd watch the movie like three times a day, and I'd memorize the lines like that annoying person you refuse to watch old movies with. I absolutely loved the movie (and for a time I thought turtles really did live in sewers). I must've been 3 or 4 when I first heard this guys name; the first major leaguer that I ever heard in my life. No idea who he was back then, and I can't say I really like the guy. I can't say I really like the movie anymore either, but man did the screenwriters do something right with this tidbit.

"A Jose Conseco bat? Tell me, you didn't pay money for this..."

Gotta love a diss on guy a couple years before people really started laying it on him.
***Oh and we both share something uniquely in common: we've both taken fly balls off the dome before!
