jimbo062:Yep McAuliffe 1st for Valdosta
strovel:couldn't believe he was left out there
mrairedale:I'll go with Lee Maye
jimbo062:Valdosta #2 pick will be Bob Aspromonte
strovel:OK, when somebody gets picked, everybody in slots 1-6 from the expansion grid come off the board.
strovel:I will try to update the page as we go
strovel:and I may tweak DAK's pullbacks if he gets me a valid list before we finish
mrairedale:I'll take Pedro Ramos
jimbo062:give me a sec
mrairedale:Gonna be a long year with Pedro Ramos as the staff ace...
strovel:can't find ramoes
mrairedale:He's Brielle #4 on the chart
jimbo062:I see him now
jimbo062:#3 Dick Hall
mrairedale:and Phil Ortega here
strovel:are you guys keeping up OK, or do you need the page to be updated?
jimbo062:Chris, let me make sure I'm on the same page here...I took Dick Hall from DC so everyone through Richie Ashburn is now off the board, correct??
strovel:right - slots 1-6 come off the board
mrairedale:The updating is very helpful
strovel:unless you guys take someone from slots 7-12, then only 1-5 come off
jimbo062:If it's not too much trouble on your end updates would be GREAT!
strovel:problem is, I'm very 1990s in my web site expertise - just use Word to edit, and drag and drop to FTP, so I have to close the doc evedry time I update
jimbo062:my problem is I'm stupid...
strovel:well, we're boys, as my wife would say
jimbo062:my turn...just a sec
strovel:re: the AShburn reference, he is on Seltzer, not DC
jimbo062:Ray Washburn for Valdosta
mrairedale:haha- first stolen pick...
mrairedale:I'll go with Lee Stange
strovel:California has to find another Lee on the board
jimbo062:Sorry I'm so slow guys...the list I printed doesn't match up with the list on the website...not the same order I mean.
strovel:glad I don't have to worry about expansion again for a good while
jimbo062:just bear with me when I screw up a pick...We'll take Jim Gentile
strovel:Diamond is NEVER a mistake
strovel:surprised Tim left him out there
mrairedale:and Rich Rollins here
jimbo062:chris, for what it's worth I'm not seein any updates on the web
strovel:refresh the page?
jimbo062:tried it...let me open a different browser. I'm using Google Chrome.
strovel:if you guys can note surrendering team, would make it quicker for me
strovel:all DC players are off the board now
jimbo062:OK give me just a minute...I promise to speed it up! IE shows the updates Google Chrome does not...weird
strovel:it's bath time here, so I may duck out for a moment here and there, just keep going
mrairedale:I'll take maybe the 1st 20 game winner cut for expansion: Joey Jay of Long Beach
jimbo062:Got me that time!
jimbo062:Valdost will take Ty Cline-BRIELLE
strovel:Blue Claws done
jimbo062:I'm trying to figure out why the page updates on IE but not Chrome?
strovel:could be the time stamp on the files on the server is making it think there's no newer version to get
strovel:just a guess
mrairedale:I'll go with Al Smith of Edgewood
strovel:and a cup of beer
strovel:for readabilitiy's sake, just going to effectively delete the taken players - should be easier to see who's left
jimbo062:Valdosta will take Fred Gladding-SELTZER
strovel:I'm updating about every pick now
mrairedale:Can you tell me: is their a PR and MBF boost for innocuous players and what the threshold is?
strovel:we use a limited amount of 930 players, everybody gets andextra 10% of playing time, pitchers grades 1-3 get 1000 MBF
strovel:guys who had OPS<.500 or OBP-Avg>.100 do NOT get 930
strovel:we had stiffs get 200 walks because they happened to fall under OPS<.600
strovel:and a guy struck out 300 times because the owner was willing to let an 0-for-1 guy with a whiff play every day
mrairedale:Thanks- I'll grab Ashburn from Seltzer
jimbo062:Valdosta will take Lu Clinton from Sawdust City
mrairedale:I'll take one of my Dad's heros: Early Wynn from DAK
jimbo062:Valdosta will take Dick bertell from Spanish Fort
mrairedale:I'll grab Ruben Amaro
strovel:four-yea-rold is carrying on
strovel:will rejoin and updte when she's in the bath
strovel:Wynn won like 200 games for me from '47 through the time cutdowns forced me to dump him in a trade
mrairedale:We'll give him some work in his golden years...
jimbo062:When you guys are ready Valdosta will take Harvey Kuenn from Louisiana
strovel:page updated through Amaro pick
strovel:back in a moment
mrairedale:Frank Thomas, Riverside to Cal
jimbo062:Tom Satriano from Seneca to Vald.
mrairedale:Gene Conley, Spanish Fort
strovel:Conley pulled back
mrairedale:Ok, let's see....
jimbo062:How'd the bath go Chris?
strovel:but the two-year-old is now down, so my wife can attend to the 4
jimbo062:I'm glad I have a 19 and 15 year old...sorta
strovel:but I did take out the trash between picks
mrairedale:We'll go with Joe Gibbon, Cedar Park
strovel:we have and 18 and 19 too
jimbo062:You're a better man than I
jimbo062:Crap! hang on a sec
strovel:I inherited those
jimbo062:why is it the worse the players the harder it is to pick?
mrairedale:Because you're looking for someone good
strovel:I'll help you with the Baltimore pick
mrairedale:We'll go Jim Duffalo of Philly
jimbo062:I feel bad for Redding...no players taken yet!
mrairedale:were they an expansion last year?
strovel:he's in good shape
strovel:no, Redding won 94 last year
mrairedale:George Altman of Bungedore
strovel:gonna miss him
strovel:hoping somebody would be tempted by Luplow's one good year this year
mrairedale:I guess I'll take ole Gil Hodges
strovel:done too soon
jimbo062:Chuck Estrada from SF for Valdosta
mrairedale:and Pumpsie Green of Long Beach

strovel:let me reconnoiter
jimbo062:Valdosta will take Sherm Lollar from redding instead
strovel:DAK has only lost Wynn - so it has guys left - page updatuing
strovel:page is current
strovel:just a few picks to go
strovel:then two carded cuts each

mrairedale:got it, Jim up first-
mrairedale:bear with me, I hadn't scouted these
strovel:since they're SO many of them to look through, you guys can just send me lists at some point tonight
mrairedale:sounds good to me
strovel:hence the whole discussion i started about not cutting so many guys
jimbo062:I am in the same boat...I'll send you a list of about 5 guys in a little while...Thanks for all your patience!!!
strovel:went pretty smoothly
mrairedale:excellent, went pretty smooth
jimbo062:Thanks guys...I'll have a list in shortly
