Two of mine weren't drafted at all today, and my 1st rounder went 115.
I'm not as good as last year.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

Just read through this entire thread. Really, really cool idea.
Cool I'll get the pick up in the next bit. Should we somehow make this thread or another thread selections only so there's no random chatter inbetween picks for people scrolling through? I'm sure many people will post reasoning behind their picks so it might be annoying for those to scroll through 3-4 posts of conversation inbetween each pick no?
Maybe a discussion thread and a pick thread like the All-Star draft you guys did? Just a thought.
I still like my picks.. Though neither signed in 2008

Final result is post #259.
One thing I can deduce from these mocks: OBM is the Reds GM. OBM, are you and Dick Williams on the same page?

I'm too lazy to do it, but I would like to see a scoreboard on major league WAR awarded to see who wins these mocks.
