That's exactly what would have happened, Todd.

I did the same with Pierre. I needed some speed bad, had the outfield slots left and pulled the trigger a round early. One thing I have learned early from Mastersball, it is value in a vacume, as soon as you start picking players, everyones value changes (I am sure I got that wrong and Zola will be on here shortly to correct me :D :D )

Well - Tom lets you know the decision was a good one. Just as you let me know on Borbon.

Guys, does anyone have a copy of my team they can PM me? I didn't copy it after the draft and I seem to be locked out of MDC now

Does anyone know when the rosters will be loaded to the NFBC site? I don't see anything on there as of yet.

Anything drafted on MDC will take a little while to transfer, but they'll get it done. They have live drafts this weekend and next, plus a bunch of on-line stuff to deal with.

Everybody has been sent an excel speadsheet showing the remaining undrafted players. This and the draft and roster pages sent previously will hopefully hold you over til our league gets loaded up.
