        I’m going offline for a couple of hours. Give me the highest (earliest) pick after MaineSkin selects.
        "What we need in the United Stated is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness but is love, and wisdom and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black." -- Robert F. Kennedy, April 4, 1968, from a flatbed truck in Indianapolis, as he informed the crowd of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.

          I think MaineSkin also indicated by PM yesterday that he wanted the highest available pick. So would seem MaineSkin gets 8 and Phil 9 but MaineSkin can confirm.

              In that case I’ll drop down to 12.

                Correct. We gave him 8.

                    OOPS, I meant to say #s 7,8, and 9, so there goes that theory.

                      There were a couple of factors that went into this pick. I did an NFBC draft champions earlier this year and had pick 3 - which was my KDS preference. I was happy to get whichever of Yelich, Acuna, or Trout made it to me. Of course, the guy picking second took DeGrom so that was out the window. I didn't really like having my picks so close together as the draft went on. There are some other reasons as well which I will discuss after the draft

                        I kinda thought you were trying something out here. Which is the good things about these drafts.

                        Woahh to Degrom 2nd btw

                          Did you prefer taking whoever fell to you rather than having to choose between two of the three players, as a result of DeGrom being picked before you? I actually prefer drafting at the wheel. It's nice to have two picks in a row and I did so in two NFBC drafts this year but I thought it would be fun to try drafting with a high 1st round pick, which I never seem to get in the NFBC KDS.

                            I liked being able to have any of those 3 and then have a higher pick in rd 2. I've done very few drafts - almost all auctions - so I'm definitely trying some things out as circle says. What I found at spot 3 is that a lot of guys I wanted were going in the space between my picks and then when it got to me I was sometimes pushing guys up slightly to get someone I liked where I saw some bargains going before my pick(s). That may just be the reality of drafting. It will be fun to see.

                              I had #1 in the KDS for the offseason slow draft and stayed there, so I find it to be a really interesting choice and #6 to be a good place to go if you don't have your heart set on one of the top two guys. FWIW, I see a couple of first-round plateaus in my own draft sheet, one around picks 3-7 and again around picks 9-13. So by that measure, if you do want to drop, #6 would be a good spot and that's also why I chose to drop from potentially #10 to #12 ... it leaves in still in good position for one of the players in what I see as the second plateau of the first round, and in decent position to pick up a slightly better player on the way back.

                              By sheer coincidence I ended up as one of the last KDS picks in the April league and made nearly the exact same decision, dropping from a potential #11 to #12, right next to doc1966. So I reckon we're going to be draft buddies again. That seemed to work out okay in the April draft. I don't recall too much sniping between us.

                                I'll take 10. Sorry for the tardiness.
