    Well, I guess we are starting a trend because I for sure was going with Markakis & Phillips so I had to shift a bit as well and had to go a little older than I wanted

    4.12 Nick Markakis
    5.1 Brian Roberts

    Go Orioles

    I will be making my next pick here very shortly. Hold tight with me and reds1869 will be back up on the clock. Shouldn't be too long.

    I think my pick will hit while I'm asleep, so to keep things moving I'm going to PM my top choices to Atomic so things can keep going.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

Yeah there certainly are players who would have given more production THIS year, but for years to come the gamble obviously is that he has a lot to offer.
    Ran across an interesting article in today's Cincinnati Enquirer about how many Reds fans feel the Reds should have taken Beckham with their 8th pick in the first round that year instead of Yonder Alonso. Valid points are made that no one knew Joey Votto would be THIS good and the offensive talents of Alonso made him just too good to pass up. If I have 2 guys of somewhat similar collegiate talent, I take the one that offers greater position flexibilty (Beckham) and with the Reds having nobody in the pipeline at that time at 3rd and using starter Edwin Encarnacion, I would have thought the Reds would have indeed taken Gordon Beckham. Oh well, the Reds also passed on drafting Derek Jeter and Tim Lincecum so not drafting Beckham certainly isn't a surprise.

    I got the PM with your picks. I will be up for a couple more hours, so if thatcoolguy_22 posts his pick soon we may get through 3-5 picks yet tonight.
