    So has everyone had a good look at the draft board? What do you all think??

    And if we could get a little clarification on the manner in which the draft is going to be conducted? I got my list ready. Mebbe we could get a poll up if ppl prefer a live draft vs the draft list. I think if we tried we could knock out a solid fun draft in a day or two. Depends on if ppl are active on the forums, and want to devote the time to it.

    Just a thought.

    1st round draft order:

    1. Baltimore Orioles- 3B Carlos Castello http://traditionsportsonline.com/tso-ootp/reports/html/players/player_32697.html

    We have two sims (4 days ) until the draft is done. We have 2 guys who won't join until Thursday. Unless we freeze things, this cant be done.

    We tested the draft lists in game and they work. If guys want to start posting picks, that's fine.

    Like I said, next season we will use a draft utility. I think that will liven up the draft discussion as guys can see and sort players without having the game, so we can actually put a timer on each pick.

    Deciding between 2 guys. I came to 1 to get castello, but I also fell in love with a pitcher. Ill look at it when I get home (20 min?) and come to a final decision. I'm also pretty sure #2 is the twins, so that's a commish pick.

    Cool, can you post draft order if it's not too much trouble. Already know who the Twins are going to pick. Pretty easy choice if you look at their top prospects.

    And with the first pick in the 2012 first year player draft, the Baltimore Orioles select:

    Carlos Castello, 3B from Clemson (despite the fact that he's probably a racist like the rest of their fans, amirite?)

    Pagamer07 the Twins are now up

    BTW, like I told you in the Skype chat... Castello was #1 on my board due to needs. THink he is going to be a fantastic hitter. There is a helluva 2B out there too with 9 contact.

    My bad, it said they were in game and I can't ever remember who has what team off the top of my head.

    I'm not sure I understand... do I need to rank players that I would draft? Or are we doing each pick round by round from the list in the game? I'm not sure I understand what I need to do here??? I was thinking the picks were auto picks. Let me know so I don't hold anyone up please, thanks.

    Yeah... he's got all the makings of an MVP type hitter. His potential is arguably every bit as good as Bryce Harpers. His defense isn't half bad either for a slugger. I think he probably comes in as a top 5 type prospect and I hope all that extra money I'm spending on player development gets him up to the majors quickly.

    We're gonna try to get through a little bit of the draft outside of the game, and everything else will be autopicked

    Ok, sounds good. Hmmmm, I will have to look at it tonight, sorry for holding everyone up. UNLESS, unless, there is a link on here for the draft pool that I can try and look at from work....
