Also, just as an FYI, there is no time limit currently in place for this draft. No time limit on how long you have to pick, and no time limit as to when it ends. We keep going until either all eligible players are drafted, or all owners have passed and do not want to make any further picks. If you do not want to choose anymore players in the draft, simply type "PASS" or "I'll pass on future rounds" in a post and submit it in this thread so we know you will no longer be drafting. A couple of people have PM'd me with their picks, which is always fine as it keeps the draft moving, but you don't have to. Also, I will be leaving work at 5:30 and after that time will most likely not be checking my PM's until the following morning at 8am or so. I hope you all enjoy the draft and get the players that you want. OesterPoster has PM'd me his #1 pick, so I will make that selection at 9am and then BoydsofSummer will be on the clock...

Red Leader
07-17-2007, 09:01 AM
Alright. 9am. Time to get this draft underway.

With the 1st pick in the 2007 Redszone Prospect Draft, OesterPoster selects:

Neftali Soto of the GCL Reds

BoydsOfSummer
07-17-2007, 12:31 PM
Devin Mesoraco

Red Leader
07-17-2007, 12:41 PM
Thanks, Boyds. Austin Kearns is on the clock, and he PM'd me his pick.

With the 3rd pick in the draft, Austin Kearns selects:

RZ whipping boy d'jour, OF Drew Stubbs.

Red Leader
07-17-2007, 12:42 PM
dougflynn23 is on the clock. I will send him a PM to let him know.

Red Leader
07-17-2007, 05:20 PM
PM to dougflynn23 was sent around 12:45pm today, just FYI. I'm hoping he can drop in later tonight to make his pick.

cincyinco, you're in the hole.

Red Leader
07-18-2007, 09:17 AM
A second PM to dougflynn23 was just sent. Waiting for him to make his pick. cincyinco, you are on deck (not in the hole as previously reported).

RedLegsToday
07-18-2007, 12:02 PM
so, is there any time limit here? Will we eventually skip dougflynn23 or will we wait, maybe forever? Heck, he could be on vacation or something and not able to get to the internet.

Red Leader
07-18-2007, 12:22 PM
so, is there any time limit here? Will we eventually skip dougflynn23 or will we wait, maybe forever? Heck, he could be on vacation or something and not able to get to the internet.

He logged in yesterday at 4:30 or so. Not sure why he didn't make his pick then. I will give him until 2pm today to make his pick. If he hasn't made a pick by then I will erase him from the list and he will not participate in this draft this year. Sound ok to everyone?

Red Leader
07-18-2007, 02:03 PM
Alright, time's up. I removed dougflynn23 from the draft. cincyinco is now on the clock taking over dougflynn's 4th pick in the draft. I'm sending a PM to cincyinco momentarily.

cincyinco
07-18-2007, 04:31 PM
I would like to select Kyle Lotzkar

Red Leader
07-18-2007, 04:32 PM
Thanks, cincyinco.

RedLegsToday, you are on the clock...

11larkin11
07-18-2007, 04:33 PM
Wait, Im confused. Did cincyinco take Frazier or Lotzkar?

reds44
07-18-2007, 04:35 PM
Wait, Im confused. Did cincyinco take Frazier or Lotzkar?
Lotzkar

Red Leader
07-18-2007, 04:36 PM
Wait, Im confused. Did cincyinco take Frazier or Lotzkar?

Lotzkar. I wrote the wrong name in. My bad. Frazier is still undrafted at this point.

11larkin11
07-18-2007, 04:50 PM
Ok there we go. It said Frazier up top so I was confused.

RedLegsToday
07-18-2007, 09:57 PM
I'll take Brandon Waring.

Mario-Rijo
07-18-2007, 10:36 PM

RHP Jordan Smith (Dayton Dragons)...BTW - He's pitching tonight! :)

Red Leader
07-19-2007, 09:08 AM
dabvu is on the clock with the 11th pick in this draft.


*Also, for those of you that have already drafted, if you DO NOT want another prospect please post the word 'PASS' in either the post you make your selection or in a seperate post before your next pick, so we'll know to skip you. Thanks.

dabvu2498
07-19-2007, 09:14 AM
As if you couldn't have already guessed, I will select Robert Tyler Rhoden, a 22nd round selection out of the greatest institute for higher learning in the world.

Red Leader
07-19-2007, 09:21 AM
As if you couldn't have already guessed, I will select Robert Tyler Rhoden, a 22nd round selection out of the greatest institute for higher learning in the world.

I almost just went ahead and typed it in before you picked just to be a smart alec. I decided that ultimately I would have felt like a complete fool if you didn't pick him, so I opted not to go that route.

reds44 is on the clock. Will send a PM in a moment.

You needn't have worried. When presented with the opportunity to be a homer, I always comply.

reds44
07-19-2007, 01:08 PM
I'll go off the board a bit and take Chris Dickerson.

cincy09
07-19-2007, 01:10 PM

Red Leader

Gallen you are on the clock.

Gallen5862
07-19-2007, 01:29 PM
10 319 Harris Honeycutt rhp South Carolina SC is my draft pick in round 1.

camisadelgolf
07-19-2007, 04:46 PM
I'll take Josh Beal.

dougdirt
07-19-2007, 05:02 PM
I guess that means its my turn.

I will take RHP Efrain Rodriguez.

Red Leader
07-19-2007, 05:04 PM
Thanks guys.

HBP is on the clock and seeing how this thread history has shown me he hasn't opened this thread, I think I should send him a PM.

HBP
07-19-2007, 06:34 PM
I'll take Justin Reed

Shaknb8k
07-19-2007, 07:19 PM
I'll take Tzu-Kai Chiu

Red Leader
07-20-2007, 11:56 AM
Topcat is on the clock. I will send him and email to ask him to make his selection shortly.

Gallen5862
07-20-2007, 05:24 PM
I have been having computer problems. I will still want players to draft. I get a new disc Tuesday to system restore. I am sometimes able to get computer to work as is.

dougdirt
07-22-2007, 01:24 PM
Anyone seen topcat around?

KittyDuran
07-22-2007, 06:22 PM
Anyone seen topcat around?I don't think he's been around since early Thursday morning... so he might be away for the weekend...

cincyinco
07-23-2007, 11:43 AM
Hey Red Leader...

I would appreciate another PM when my selection comes round again if thats okay. I'm checking this thread as regularly as possible, but I also am out a connection at home at the moment. So I guess I would also appreciate a bit of patience. Feel free to jump my pick if necessary... I dont want to hold anything up.

Thanks!

Red Leader
07-23-2007, 12:04 PM
I don't think he's been around since early Thursday morning... so he might be away for the weekend...

We'll be moving on at 2pm today. We can't hold this thing up forever. Topcat has been on the clock since noon on Thursday.

Sure, I'll send you a PM when it gets close to your pick. And if we can wait 4 days for Topcat to make a pick we can wait a little while for you to make your pick...

Red Leader
07-23-2007, 03:16 PM
Alright, time to move on. Topcat hasn't been on the board since 7/19. I'm going to remove his name from the draft, which means that OesterPoster is on the clock...I will send him a PM to let him know.

Red Leader
07-24-2007, 11:19 AM
No OesterPoster response.

Man, this draft is really stalling.

Any ideas on what we should do?

Should we just continue on through the draft order until someone makes a pick, and then offer the remainder (after everyone has drafted) to those that we skipped?

dougdirt
07-24-2007, 11:29 AM
I think maybe we should go with a time limit of say, 8 hours. Send a PM to everyone currently involved and let them know of the rules and pick a time to get started with it. Obviously the time limit is probably only good from say 8am-10pm or so. If people don't respond or fail to make their pick, move on to the next guy.

Just my suggestion.

dougdirt
07-24-2007, 11:55 PM
Does anyone else have ideas? Does anyone else want to continue drafting?

11larkin11
07-25-2007, 12:03 AM
Yes I want to continue

Patrick Bateman
07-25-2007, 12:16 AM
I'd like to continue drafting.

I understand everyone is busy, but I find it pretty irresponsible how some of these members have been treating the draft. It's a job that requires a decent amount of work, and I'm appreciative of the work Red Leader does to run this thing. It would be nice if those who committed to the draft actually followed through and participated.

BoydsOfSummer
07-25-2007, 07:15 AM
I think I'm after Oester. I only want my one guy so pass on by me.

RedLegsToday
07-25-2007, 07:55 AM
I'd like to continue drafting.

Red Leader
07-25-2007, 08:39 AM
Ok, here's how we're going to do it. We're going to start over (kind of).

Those that would like to draft and are able to participate in this draft for the rest of this week, post here and let me know of your interest (this includes anyone new that didn't get in on the draft when we originally started it). If you've posted that you'd like to continue on the this page or the last page, you don't need to post again. We'll take today until 4pm to see who's still interested in drafting and can make it in here to make their picks in a (somewhat) timely fashion. Starting at 4pm we'll resume the draft and hopefully we can get through this. Those that have not posted their interest in continuing to draft will be removed from the draft order. All players drafted to this point will remain property of the person that has drafted them regardless if they are going to continue or not.

Sound ok with everyone?

Red Leader
07-25-2007, 08:41 AM

Red Leader
07-25-2007, 08:47 AM
Also, if you choose to continue drafting, we're going to put a time limit on your pick. You will have 4 hours to post your pick from when the last person makes their selection. I will send PM's to the next person to draft after a selection is made letting you know you are on the clock. If you do not make your pick within 4 hours, we are going to assign you the worst prospects in baseball and you will have to report on them (Pete Rose Jr, Matt Boone types). Ah, maybe we won't go that far, but if you don't make your pick within 4 hours we reserve the right to remove you from the draft, forfeiting future picks.

No more Commodores in the Reds minor league system, eh? Just kidding. Thanks for letting me know, dabvu, and enjoy your time away...

dougdirt
07-25-2007, 11:00 AM
I am in.

Might I make a suggestion that since we are going to have a 4 hour time limit that you send a PM to the next TWO people to draft, so that even the second person has a little bit of time to know that they eitehr need to log in or pm you back with who they would like rather than get passed up becuase they had somewhere to be or something.

Good idea. I'll do that, and up you one. I'll send a PM to the next 3 people letting them know who is on the clock and who the next two to draft after them is:

Similar to:

dougdirt - on the clock
Red Leader - on deck
dabvu - in the hole.

That should help, IMO.

Reds Fanatic

I am going to pass on any more picks.

Red Leader
07-25-2007, 03:40 PM
Thanks, guys. I know SandyD wants to continue drafting as well, but she can't access RZ from work, and with the 4:00 deadline I've imposed, she's not going to be able to post here by that time, so I'll go ahead and put her down for "still drafting."

Patrick Bateman
07-25-2007, 04:14 PM
Looks like my turn then.

I may be out the door soon, so I'll make my pick. Hopefully that's cool with RL.

So I will take Alexander Smit.

Red Leader
07-25-2007, 04:18 PM
Austin Kearns, that's fine. I'll make that your pick.

Before we continue past that I want to PM Mario-Rijo, reds44, HBP and Shaknb8k since they didnt' respond in this thread.

cincyinco and RedLegsToday can go ahead and make their picks if they want, but I want to give those 4 a chance to stay in the draft if they want to.

reds44
07-25-2007, 04:44 PM
I'm still in, but I go on vacation out east starting Friday.

Would it be alright if I sent you a PM with a list of guys I would like if they are still there, RL?

Thanks for letting me know, HBP. I appreciate it.

Mario-Rijo
07-25-2007, 05:34 PM
I'll try one more pick, Thanks for hanging on. :thumbup: Even though AK scooped up my next guy. Smit should be a real interesting guy AK, have fun with him.

cincyinco
07-25-2007, 06:31 PM
Sorry for the delay guys, got held up a bit at work ghosting some laptops.. and then got sidetracked by the brewcrew trade.

I'm making my selection after looking over who's left.

I'll take a shot on Blake Stauffer 3b/OF

11larkin11
07-25-2007, 09:29 PM
Actually Red Leader, I've changed my mind. I think I'll stick with Carroll only. Sorry about that, hope it isn't too much confusion.

RedLegsToday
07-26-2007, 07:44 AM
I'll take Chris Valaika.

Red Leader
07-26-2007, 08:31 AM

I'll send PM's now.

camisadelgolf
07-26-2007, 09:59 AM
I'll make a pick depending on who's available.

Mario-Rijo
07-26-2007, 04:49 PM
Sorry guys been at work all day!

My pick is Angel Cabrera SS Billings.

Red Leader
07-26-2007, 04:52 PM
SandyD is on the clock, followed by Kitty.

Sandy cannot post on RZ from work. I'd expect her to stop by after she gets off work. She's in the CST time zone, so it should be in the next hour or two.

SandyD
07-26-2007, 08:23 PM
I'll take Brett Bartles, 3b, Billings. Unless I missed it and he's take.

Oh, and I'll pass on future rounds.

I should be on that list. I sent a PM to Red Leader with my pick.

My apologies. I screwed that up. cincy09, if you makes you feel any better, I forgot reds44, too. I neg myself.

I have corrected the list above and will re-post it.

reds44 is on vacation, but PM'd me a list of his picks. I will make a pick for him in a second, and then make cincy09's pick. Then Gallen will be on the clock (PM already sent to him).

Red Leader
07-27-2007, 11:54 AM
reds44 selects: Adam Rosales.

Red Leader
07-27-2007, 11:55 AM

cincy09
07-27-2007, 01:43 PM
I'll pass on my 3rd round selection.

Red Leader
07-27-2007, 01:48 PM
Gallen hasn't stopped by RZ since this past Monday. I'm thinking he may be on vacation. No PM was sent to me. camisadelgolf, if you are ready with your pick, let me know.

Mario-Rijo
07-27-2007, 02:13 PM
How about that RL? If you remember that PM I sent you last weekend about whom I wanted if I wasn't able to get online.

Smit (AK took him)
Cabrera (I of course took him)
Bartles (SandyD took him)
and
Phipps (Kitty took him)

Almost right in a row, and almost in the order I wanted to choose them. Just ironic, but makes me feel good about who I wanted there. :thumbup:

BTW was Valaika really still ava., after the Smit pick? :confused:

Red Leader
07-27-2007, 03:53 PM
We're going to go ahead and skip over Gallen since he hasn't been on board in almost a week.

camisadelgolf selects: Keltavious Jones

dougdirt, you, are on the RZ Prospect Hot Seat, errr...you are up for the prospect draft.

dougdirt
07-27-2007, 04:39 PM
I will take Ramon Geronimo

Red Leader
07-27-2007, 04:49 PM
Thanks, doug.

Shaknb8k, Austin Kearns and cincyinco are next up. I'm sending a PM to each of them now.

Mario-Rijo
07-27-2007, 09:25 PM
I don't know what everyone else thinks about this but the pool is getting shallow IMO.

Perhaps we should delay the 3rd round a bit until after the deadline and perhaps even until Aug 15th? Then we might have a half a dozen or so more intriguing guys.

What does everyone think?

camisadelgolf
07-28-2007, 04:12 AM
I'm not opposed. Perhaps the draft should be held on August 1st or 16th every year.

RedLegsToday
07-28-2007, 11:26 AM
whatever you guys want to do is fine.

Red Leader
07-30-2007, 08:48 AM
Let's go ahead and slam the brakes on until after the August 15th deadline. Things are running slow in this draft anyway. Maybe if we take 2 weeks off and come back to it, things will pick up and we can get things rolling.

Gallen5862
07-31-2007, 10:22 PM
I am back my computer was broke I am borrowing my brothers computer at my house now. Can I still draft? I would like to continue. My old computer would not get fixed even with system restore discs.

Gallen, I apologize for skipping over you when it was your turn to draft, but I didn't (at the time) want to hold the draft up.

We are going to resume this draft after the August 15th signing deadline. At that time, you will have the 1st pick when we pick up again. I hope that is ok with you. Again, I apologize for skipping over you when it was your turn to pick, but I hadn't heard from you and assumed (always a terrible thing) that you were going to be away for awhile and didn't want to hold up the draft.

That is fine by me. I understand why you did that. I am just glad to be back on and re entered into the draft.

Alright RL, since we are delaying the draft I'll be able to draft for myself once again.

Thanks for the Rosales pick.

I want to go ahead and select Matt Maloney for my pick when we start the draft.
