    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread

    Dougdirt is on the clock...he private messaged me with his picks because he's at the Reds game but I'll let his wait to get home and make his own pick unless Redhawk61 signs on soon. If Redhawk is ready then I'll go ahead and use the pick doug left with me.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread

    Hey, I wound up with Alvarez as my pick for the Orioles! I was expecting my pick to be the first to go several spots higher than anticipated. Alvarez was my third choice, but I expected my fourth to actually be who was picked. Excellent!
