As promised, it is time to get this thing off the ground. Here are some specifics.

-The goal is to build a 25 man roster. You can assemble any type of team you like, there is no specific requirement on number of pitchers, catchers, etc. The only rule is that you need to field a nine man lineup.

-All reasonable players are allowed. This includes major leaguers, minor leaguers, negro league players, and international players of renown.

-We are going in a straight draft order, with rounds taking place on weekdays Monday through Friday. Saturdays and Sundays will be rest days. You can make your pick at any time after your chosen time.

-I am personally going to draft at the END of every round.

-I am going to start a separate draft thread for non-players.

4am: Fokai
7am: Gert T
9am: Agent of Oblivion
9:30am: Bored
11am: Youth N Asia
11:30: Original Orange Goblin
12pm: Pinjockey
1pm: 909
3pm: Smartley Pretty
4pm: Smues
4:30: Brother Mouzone
6:30pm: Brooklyn Zoo
8pm: JHawk
8:30: Treble
9pm: HarleyQuinn
11pm: Beast
11:30: MFer

First round will kick off tomorrow (Friday) with Gert T making the first selection. Now if anyone else wants to join in, they have until Sunday to do so. They will receive a late first round pick but will proceed normally through the remainer of the draft. If you wish to join, please select an available time slot. You will need to wait until Saturday/Sunday to make your first selection however.

Feel free to ask any questions. Let's hope this runs smoothly.

Although he may be a Top 5 player, I am a lifelong Cardinals fan so he has to be on my team.

Oh well, I guess I'll make the obvious choice, even though I don't particularly want to:

I would have taken him #1. Best motherfucker to ever play baseball.

Since I can't, though, I'll take Walter fucking Johnson.

Was debating between Williams or Griffey, but I grew up watching Griffey, and he's one of my favorite baseball players of all time, so I went with him.

Figures I'd forget something. I'll say yes, because in a league like this I'd rather see another great hitter than watch a guy like Sandy Koufax take his hacks.

11:30pm? You're in. And I generally intend to make my picks the following morning unless I'm up late. You can make your pick tonight, though Youth n Asia has the right to claim a player before that.

Fantastic to see no missed picks thus far. I'll update the first post with results at the conclusion of each round.
