so we are in ffa mode?

I'm not sure.
No.; I just picked because no one in the rest of the first round had a year near mine where they could have taken my player.
Any more moves like this and it becomes a cluster#### realllll quick. Wait your turn, guy.
I feel strongly both ways.

I'm not sure.
I think maybe we should have a rule where if you have a pick and want to select someone who has not played in any year of the drafters ahead of you, you can pick that player immediately. eg.1994 is on the clock1893 is next1976 19141942 --- this guy can select Ted Williams at any time as he did not play in any years still to pick ahead of him
PM's might work better.

Maybe only the guy on deck can do this? Just throwing ideas around, I don't mind having everybody wait. Would certainly make it easier to track.

Which to me is the whole point.I actually don't have a problem with it, but maybe just to ease everyone's mind we go in order for a round or two first.

He has 1923 in the first round and wants to pick Ruth so he can start rubbing it in our faces ASAP.

The funnier thing to do would be to pick Babe Adams and his 1.39 WHIP, void SCBF's premature 1.24 pick, and start an epic whinedown.

4 beers deep already at buddy's bachelor party. Don't have time, energy or desire to deal with this today. WAIT YOUR TURN!!! No need to blow through this in record time, and to do otherwise just invites confusion, mixups and people tuning out. Will update the OP tomorrow when (if?) I wake up. Until theb, play nice and chill the #### out.

Commish out

Can't check the gmail site right now but if you sent it to that site someone else can verify it. If it wasn't sent there you need to reroll and send it there. Side note: betting 200 bucks on a filly at practically even money in the Preakness seems like a really stupid idea. Yet that's what I feel compelled to do.

Are these your years? You didn't put your name on them, but they made it to the ruthroll e-mail. (I didn't label mine either).

1: 31 + 1892 = 1923 2: 30 + 1892 = 1922 3: 24 + 1892 = 1916 4: 1 + 1892 = 1893 5: 52 + 1892 = 1944

That's fine then. Sparty did the same thing. Seriously though, let's stay in order. Hell, this thing hasn't even officially started yet.

Well, he has 1993 and I was going to wait and see what SNC did with his year 2000 pick. We were pretty sure we were going to do the deal, but I want to wait to make sure.

Not exactly sure what he wants with my year 1986 pick. I'm seeing two obvious possibilities there.

there is no chance the player i am selecting is taken before me

What are your 5 yrs?
He has 1923 in the first round and wants to pick Ruth so he can start rubbing it in our faces ASAP.
for the record I would have taken Ruth at Norwoods slot, the f'ing other people factor was the clincher.
