let’s keep the picks only in the thread for the draft. discussion is welcome and encouraged in this thread.

Also, here are a couple of things to help keep things moving, but I personally don’t have a big issue with the pace as we all have different things going on:

  • If you are waiting to make your pick, and for whatever reason can’t stick around and don’t mind showing others your proverbial cards, then feel free to give me your list in the comments. If I don’t post it, someone can volunteer to, I’m sure. That’s not preferred, but it’s definitely more than OK as I understand not all of you may be able to be at your computer. Remember to try and think as your club thinks.
  • Be sure to reply to Jake at Bucco Blog’s mass email sent earlier today with everyone’s name to let everyone know you picked so the next person knows they are up. In the email, it may be helpful to say what team you drafted for and who the pick is.
