No Whining Progressive: 1961 Draft Topic

Remarkably 10:00 AM and 5:30 PM are both very good times for me.

OK for pick number 1-not the best total career but the next 6 seasons are untouchable:

And we're off...owners are welcome to start making picks, but remember we are not on the clock until Monday (and I confess I am not ready to make my pick, so we may not get far for another day or so).

I assume we're s-mailing the next owners to keep this going.
2/4/2010 10:53 AM
I will select Hank Aaron-OF

and I will sitemail the next 3 owners
2/4/2010 11:32 AM
Not sure if I am making the right choice because I really wanted a pitcher but I will select Frank Robinson - OF.

Will sitemail next 3.

I appreciate everyone's patience. For those who have never done an inaugural progressive draft before, it takes a lot more work than preparing for a rookie draft. I wanted to give everyone a few days to plan their drafting strategy.

However, due to weather on the east coast, I share the concern that not everyone will be ready. In DC where I am, we got hit with 2 feet of snow yesterday. I have power, but not everyone in my area does. If at some point tomorrow it looks like we're missing several picks, I will reserve the right to pause the draft until we hear from everyone. Hopefully it won't come to that.

Had a big debate between Bob Gibson and Juan Marichal...and somehow ended up settling on OF-Willie Mays

probably gonna regret it
2/7/2010 1:45 PM
Hard to imagine anyone regretting Willie Mays. I had much the same pitcher debate, and I'm going with P Bob Gibson

2/7/2010 1:55 PM
No debate for me...I was just waiting to see who you guys were going to leave me. FYI, I had Gibby #1. But, we are happy to select the Dominican Dandy Juan Marichal-P.

Oh well. Torre was the guy I was targeting with this pick. Since he's gone, and since nobody seems to want to trade up (and I don't blame them) I'll lock down the hot corner for the next dozen years or so with:
