    Go ahead and count me in for the hockey ATD.

    I'm not very well versed in hockey history, but I'll give it a go.

    It won't be that bad. Bobby Orr retired before this. Although I'm older and a Hockey ATD vet, I just wanna have fun and fellowship and make a fun team. I'm considering doing the same thing in next year's Baseball ATD.

    I had a feeling one of you were going to go 3B after me.

    Wrigs, would you have taken Boggs over Matthews?

    No, but Boggs would have been my 2nd choice at 3B.

    We are on an 8 hour clock until the 22nd and final round.

    The nice thing about only 9 teams in this exercise is that the picks come around a whole lot quicker. Very cool.

    The downside will come when time to vote. All these teams will be SUPER TEAMS, to the nth degree. Much more than the all star teams of 15-18 teams ATD's. The difference between teams is gonna be paper thin.

    Position: Leftfielder
    Bats: Right • Throws: Right

    We need to have one undrafted that we can mention for lame jokes such as "Babe Ruth is good, but he's no Charley Jones". I select Charley Jones.

    I prefer this version:



    Besides Fenway and sarge88, who understands this reference?

    I'm a raised Yinzer. That's the anthem from the last joyous Pittsburgh baseball moment. We get it during every rain delay on the Jumbotron and AT&T Sports.

    Bonds, Clemens, and Schilling are tracking under 75% according to @NotMrTibbs.

    Only Mo, Doc and my favorite undrafted look to be on pace for the Hall with around 43% of the ballots revealed.

    Agreed. I just got 2 x MVP Hall of Famer SS Robin Yount in the 13th round and I have 13 HoFers!?! The talent level is crazy.

    Yeah, I was just thinking of my lineup and most likely, a guy with a OPS+ of 141 will be batting 8th for me.

    Why did I take Mel Ott in the 4th round when I could have had the same 155 OPS+ in the 15th round with Joey Votto? ;)

    Please remember this is a 22 round draft. Please adjust your drafting and rosters accordingly.

    Brooks is 8th in 3B JAWS.

    Walker only got 34.1% of the 2018 HoF vote.

    With ~52% of the votes revealed in the 2019 voting, Walker has gained 46 votes and is currently at 65.4%.

    Right now there's only one - Fergie, who I had the good fortune to draft earlier.

    As far as possible candidates (outside of Walker), the only ones who come to mind are Votto and Morneau.

    Eric Gagne also had a hell of a peak but man was it short.

    Since the first manager was taken, are we drafting a manager? With the short roster and all it seems unneeded.

    Why did we switch to double picks? Makes no sense with lots of draft to go.
