Hello, everyone! Sorry for the late draft post, but my son is moving from one place to another and we helped him get started. If you know, or remember from your own days, how college-aged boys can be (especially when there are three in one rental), you might imagine what we faced.
In any case, this week, we had our first NO SKUNK draft, and it worked exactly as planned. Erin Rose had #1 overall pick and ProwlingCats got the next pick.
Erin Rose snagged Kris Bryant (who was by far the most sought after player this week). ProwlingCats had him as first pick as well, so they snagged their second pick: Jorge Soler.
Congratulations, you two! And, congrats to everyone that played along this week for creating the highest draft round elimination to date: we went FIVE rounds! Nice job!
I will have the new list sometime Monday Night.
Below the draft results, we have today's pack, too!
