Should be good now, Chris. EC member had to validate the Stewart pick.

Great pick by the Yanks.

Just hope he gets back on the field soon -- though of course if he had been healthy all season he might have been gone a dozen picks ago...

I have seen Cristian Stewart play over 30 games this year. In the beginning of the season he was striking out on high heat or curve balls. He is much better know (even though he is currently slumping). His power is legit. Our stadium (Joker Marchant) is closed this year while it is being remodeled to the tune of $40 M. We are playing at a Division 2 college field. Florida Southern's Field is 325 down the lines, 365 in the gaps and 400 in dead center. This field is so old Babe Ruth played there (seriously). There is a building beyond the right field fence and Cristian had hit the roof three times. The scoreboard is in right-center and he hit it 3/4 of the way up.

His defense is better than advertised. While he is not smooth doing it he makes all the plays he is supposed to and some that he isn't expected to. The other night he raced to the fence and timed his jump perfectly to take a home run away.

Pick is in.  Orioles select Chris Paddack, SP, Miami Marlins Organization.

Sorry it took a few hours.  We were on the way home from registering our oldest child for college classes.  Very exciting, yet sad.

Sorry for the delay with my pick, guys.  I actually HAD sent in a list to the league because I knew that my availability would be limited, but those folks are busy too.

Anyway, the Indians pick is in............

Thank you for taking Acevedo off the board to eliminate the temptation to draft him with my next pick. Oh, and nice pick.  ;)

Met Domingo Acevedo last Thursday night in Lakeland and got his autograph in the Baseball America Prospect Handbook.  He had thrown the night before against St. Lucie. He is one massive human being.

Royals kick off round 2 with Isan Diaz, SS, Milwaukee Brewers Organization.  I really thought I'd be able to wait on him with how slow he started this year, but he's been on fire the last five weeks and I didn't want to regret passing on him here.
