FOR THE ONE THAT DID NOT READ PAGE 6 :
WOW!!!! THIS IS THE BIGGEST WAIST OF TIME I HAVE EVER SEEN. THERE IS NO WAY THIS IS FIXED. SINCE I HAVE PLAYED IN LEAGUES WITH YOU GUYS I HAVE THOUGHT THINGS ARE ALWAYS CLEAR AND FAIR. LAST YEAR I PICKED FIRST AND FINISHED 4TH 0R 5TH...DONT WAIST TIME COMPLAININGBECAUSE YOU DID NOT GET THE POSITION YOU WANTED..START DOING RESEARCH AND DO YOUR BEST WITH WHAT YOU GOT AND STOP FIGHTING LIKE KIDS THIS IS ONLY A GAME AND IS ONLY FOR ENTERTAINMENT...IF MATT HAS TO BE FORCED TO DO THIS DRAFT AGAIN I AM OUT OF THE LEAGUE BECAUSE THIS AGAIN IS FOR FUN....NOBODY IN THE WORLD CARES IF YOU WIN THIS LEAGUE EXCEPT FOR THE PEOPLE PLAYING...THIS MEANS NOTHING!!!!!! SO STOP ACTING LIKE THIS IS A FEDERAL CASE AND GIVE IT A BREAK.

I don't mean to be a thorn, but if you wouldn't mind turning off your caps lock, it would be much appreciated.  Just a courtesy, that's all, caps lock suggests yelling.

And as know, we're all level headed here.   ;)

The real kicker here with all the carrying on from Scott and Zod mainly, is that there are real advantages to every position.  The guy with the first pick takes who he thinks is the best player, but always turns out not to be, and then doesn't get any of the next 23 best players in basketball. 

The guy who picks last gets 2 of the top 13 players in basketball.

Picking in the middle isn't bad either because you're not at an extreme pole, and don't have to watch 23 of the best players disappear at a time without grabbing one of them.

I have picked at all ends of drafts in the different sports and never finished below 3rd place in any league, and won 2 of them.

Juan got first pick last year, did well the first month, then got creamed.

And after all this retarded bickering and me having to defend myself against baseless accusations with no evidence, I can't change the draft order anyway.  Then people who have an upper half of the round pick who get a lower one the second time the order is picked are at a disadvantage and will say it was done right the first time.

After all, we don't even have any money on this  :D

I don't even want one anymore, people who had something to say about this provided me with some very valuable information about their intelligence and character.  That was worth the hooplah right there, it really was.

Or you could do it because a moderator asked you to.

A dentist with visual problems. . .

That's a comforting thought.

I'm pretty sure everyone was joking about the caps lock.  I think.

Ok, enough fiddle faddle here.

How's this? Would everyone be fine and skippy if I gave up my number 2 spot for the last pick? Would we all stop being so accusing? Can't Brent confirm that in fact that was his post order, and so forth?

It does look suspicious, admittedly, but do you think for a second with the hawks that you guys are, that Brent, Dressel, and myself would try somthing so blatent? Please.

There was no rigging of this draft order.

Well, I see this thread has really improved today...  ::)

Nope.  Nobody likes reading cap-locked posts in forums.  In fact, as far as I know, most people just skip over cap-locked posts altogether.

I didn't throw any fits, and I was careful to not accuse anyone of anything.

Leave the draft order as it is - fine, I was just agreeing with multiple other people that a Yahoo-run random draft order would be much better.

And I expect that to be the policy next baseball season.
