Well, I'll have limited access from now thru Sunday evening.  Keepers won't get posted until then, unless I somehow get access to a computer at my hotel.

Sorry I am late. I will take the Mariners.

Thanks coach, I'll get the keepers posted tomorrow night.

Got all the keepers. Posting shortly.

I've started on them twice tonight, only to have them erased.  Too tired, I guess.  I'll get them posted in the morning.  Sorry, guys.

Keepers are (finally) posted.  Disco can kick us off whenever he's ready.  Timed schedule starts tomorrow morning.

Dang!  Based on schwarze's "Rule V History" post I was counting on picking 6th.  That list included best and worst seasons, though.  Throw 'em out and the White Sox pick moves to 10th!  I'm pretty sure no other team has such a big difference.

Also: I haven't tried to look it up yet myself: does anybody remember somebody having the first pick in both franchise and player drafts, as Disco has here?

Guys, we had an inordinate number of American League teams taken this leg.  That made division alignment a bit tricky.  I ended up with the following:

Division alignment

NL East: Braves, Phillies, Expos/Nationals, Pirates
NL Central: Royals, Astros, Cardinals, Reds
NL West: Dodgers, Giants, Rockies, Diamondbacks
AL East: Red Sox, Yankees, Blue Jays, Orioles
AL Central: Tigers, Indians, White Sox, Twins
AL West: Athletics, Angels, Mariners, Rangers

The biggest change here is the Royals moving from the AL to the NL Central.  The Pirates slide over to the NL East.

I double checked, and the reason for this is that the Best/Worst seasons for the White Sox works out to be 45.4% (147-177).  And since they have so few seasons anyway, removing that 45.4% really bumped them up.

We need some quality innings in Pittsburgh, and hope that Mike Norris - OAK can provide them.  Will sitemail as soon as I update page one.

That's why I protected him in the last version.
