Nobody contacted A-Team to let him know he was up until I sent him a PM and e-mail this morning. He said he would make his pick tonight, so I am giving him an extention.

Please remember to PM the next person on the list after you make your pick.

Thanks!

Jordan Schafer, OF ATL

For the record, Mark contacted me on 4/1.

I haven't been on the board in over a week. I missed my mL pick in the other draft. Email is the best way to reach me. Thanks for the patience.

Each round will go faster...I'm not worried if it takes a week.

I'm not worried if it takes a week.

Question: a player is eligible if he's below the AB/IP limit at the start of the draft? Cause if this goes for more than a week, one of my targets might pass the limit :D

So yeah...this is looking like it might work out somewhat.

I guess I should have taken the MLB ready talent instead of the down the road talent.

Can the next person please pick already. This is getting stupid. It's not that difficult.

Feel free to activate anyone you want, but you don't get another pick in this draft, and you can't pick up a replacement mL player until the draft is over...

Edinson Volquez, P Reds

This was an INVALID PICK

1) He was already on someone's roster
2) He does not have rookie eligibility

I only check picks as I put them on rosters. It is up to owners to make sure they are making a legal pick....since the mL draft is over, THEBOSS84 may simply add a mL FA
