Where the hell is Bobby? I am turning in for the night in about 30 minutes. (I look forward to this all year, so Larry does not get to make the pick on my behalf.)

Went back and forth with a few names, decided to go with McCarthy.... doubled down on him with an earlier pick in BNSL. If it weren't for the back troubles, I think he would have been a first round pick... so I'll hope he's healthy going forward

If I knew who Atticus wanted I'd be happy to make the pick. But I do not. I know who is on his short list, but that's all I got. I figure sometime around 3AM edt we'll find out who the Pirates selected.

Thanks for the patience, folks. I couldn't decide who the Pirates should go with from a short list of three. Opted for Magneuris Sierra.

Should be fun to watch this guy.  If he figures it out, could be a great pick!

I'm ready with my pick, just waiting for the last pick to be validated.

I really like the Yankees' late 5th round selection of Dylan Cease.  He was on my short list for the Dodgers' final pick, but by then I had no room for a player who would likely be on the reserve roster for 18+ months.

Regardless, Cease is likely to bring a very nice ROI for the Yanks.

All players have been added to rosters at this time, and the summer draft has concluded.  Please make any necessary roster moves before the roster lock if at all possible.  If that's not possible, please plan to make them first thing Monday after rosters unlock!
