    Yeah, he might be pretty worth it in the end, but I wouldn't have wanted to make that gamble for another round or two.

    Ditto. I really think he is going to bounce back and have a great season. At least, i hope he does (except for when he plays against the Rays and the weeks where I face plushy in fantasy).

    Ha! I always hope to draft Reynolds; last year he was great value, and hopefully with a little average luck this year, he'll give you good value here.

    Was his first answer in response to the strikeout question too, or like a HR milestone? I'm thinking of it as a sarcastic response to being asked about strikeouts, which is pretty great.

    Yup. Both on strikeouts. "SO WHAT? FUCK STRIKEOUTS!"

    Fantastic. It's so rare to get anything more than the general jockspeak out of professional athletes, let alone sarcasm.

    Yeah, that takedown looks rough.

    Wait, I misunderstood you lava. IIRC, it was on 100 ribbies. It's been a while. It was a serious question, but then he took an issue about being asked about the strikeouts;o)

    So I'm outa town and checking on my phone, so I can post my picks but if you want it to be quick is there anyone I can forward a list of picks to? Since mine are back to back it makes things easier.

    I'd do it, but since my picks are surrounding yours there could be a conflict of interest

    I'll be picking for Pizzle's next picks so make to PM me instead of him. I'll probably notice anyway, just saying not to bother PMing him.

    I have some other guys ranked higher right now, but I really believe in Jason Heyward this year.

    I mean, here is his looking practically Bondsian in [phone company] park in SF!

    (I know it's not like Bonds' swing, it was just fun seeing that angle at that ballpark)

    Ugh Lava, you took another guy right out from under me. Well, since basically every outfielder I wanted in this range just went this round,

    I carried you for 4 months in 2009, waiting for your studliness to come up, and you did jack diddley. You can make it up to me now, Matthew

    Haha after reaching for Jennings last round I was praying Victorino would last (but knew he wouldn't) and figured at least one of the Gordon/Choo/Upton/Jones/Crawford/Heyward/Cuddyer/Hart pack would make it back. That's what I get for reaching though

    Did you PM Schide, Jake? I'm sure he'll check back, but might be worth a quick pm to let him know it's his (or Pizzle's) pick.

  • SchideSchide You have dreams Everybody watching at home has dreamsRegistered User regular
    Sorry, but I haven't been home for awhile until now. But here are Pizzle's picks.

    I can't let Michael Young hang out there for another round. He will be my Second Baseman and backup Third Baseman when Zimmerman dies.

    Brett Gardner. My team is becoming more and more white. This should worry me.

    Man, i was hoping to welcome Gardner back on my team for a return bout, and Wieters, actually. Looks like Arod will be the only returning passenger on the ZH failboat.

    We might want to try to pick up the pace a bit here. We still have most of 15 rounds to go with about 5 weeks left. But we've only covered 6+ rounds in two weeks. At our current ~3 rounds a week pace we are really going to be pushing it come that last week.

    We should do it like a chess clock, where if you're slow you have less time for future picks.

    Last year it all worked out, but I don't remember if we did anything to speed things up toward the end.

    dots has til 10:15 tonight to make a pick, I think. If we run out of time, we can enter all the data we have and do an online draft for the rest of the picks. Don't quote me, but I think it's possible.

    Ok according to last year's thread we started Feb 14th. By Feb 28th we were around the start of the 10th round. The last pick was March 21st

    So we may want to try to pick up the pace, yeah.
