    The Official 2005 Draft Order (Complain about where you're picking here-I will!)

    Since we're going to try to do the expansion draft fairly soon (possibly next week-if we can't get a time that everyone can be here, we'll start it very soon since it will likely take several days), it's time to post the official draft order, so that people can start thinking about potential keepers and so that the expansion owners can start thinking about expansion draft strategy.

    Important: ALL of the expansion owners should have the list of all draftable expansion players that was expertly prepared by Big_E. I sent this to everyone. If for some reason you did not get it, please let me know right away.

    About the draft order:

    I asked Saxmania to prepare the draft order. The reason for this was, honestly, that miko and I were terrified that we would do the draft order and get the #1 and #3 picks or something, and that would look ver suspicious.

    In hindsight, based on where we're drafting, that would have been a solid idea.

    In addition, if any of these teams do not pay or can not pay, the team that takes their place will take their draft posistion. Hopefully that doesn't happen, though.

    Without any more babbling, here is the 2005 NYYFANS.COM Fantasy Baseball League Draft Order:

    ::drumroll::

    1) Italian Ice
    2) Guys with Wood
    3) Clive's Team
    4) Michigan Wolverines
    5) Larrupin' Lous
    6) PinstripePride
    7) Newburgh Naughties
    8) JDPNYY's Team
    9) DaBoys4LifeNYY35's Team
    10) Rhode Kill
    11) Tugger's Sluggers
    12) The 4 Horsemen
    13) Saxmania's Swingers
    14) Evil Empire
    15) Doc's 1.21 Gigawatts
    16) New York Squeaks
    17) Stupid Flanders' Team
    18) NY Bombers
    19) The Marauders
    20) The Naked Truth


    Since we are doing the expansion draft in reverse order of the order they're picking in the first round here, the expansion draft order will be:

    1.) Stupid Flanders
    2.) DaBoys4Life
    3.) JDPNYY
    4.) Pinstripe Pride
    5.) Clive
    -Kevin

    Stupid Flanders always gets to go first. Did he even pay?
    I'm frantic... Jeter Ceremony Date - when will this be announced????


    Thank goodness we now know.

    Actually, now that I think of it, you're picking 6th in both drafts. That's quite a feat.

    It clearly states in the League Constitution that the only requirement for a league commish is that they can read and/or write. (Which I can't do either, but I keep that well hidden.)

    #5...same spot I drafted in last year.

    Also makes one of my keeper decisions much easier.

    You're going to steal my pick every other round. I can sense it.

    Yeah, that's why I'm here-to make sure the truth comes out.

    At least that's why I think I'm here.

    Then consider yourself lucky. Last year I had so many guys injured at the same time I was considering renaming my team to Big_E's M*A*S*H Unit.

    Well I rocked the party with the Number 1 pick last year - 19th this year blows.

    Actually 19th & 22nd IS better than 1st & 40th.

    Whaddya mean, 'make sure the truth comes out'? You callin my team gay? That ain't right, man. The Truth doesn't comment about the Squeaks sexual preferences (and just what is it about your guys that 'squeaks' anyway?).

    Hmpf. The Truth are going to hold a press conference to announce that while there's nothing wrong with it, there is no truth to the rumors that any member of the team is gay, nor plans to be in the near future. We do however appreciate the support we get from our gay and lesbian fans and we fully support their freedom to make whatever lifestyle choices they want.

    And now we're all going to date some Playboy Playmates.

    Patrick, I sincerely apologize. That was a typo.

    What I MEANT to type was "to make sure the empire comes out." My bad.

    13th. Um, woo?

    I've never been tempted to re-run the random.org draft numbers. Not ever. Not even a little bit.

    But if I ever had, it would have been this year.

    I don't know, Patrick. That schedule leaves precious little time for whining and b!tching. Are you sure you've thought this through?
