I almost took him with my #3 pick - hard to pass up those mid-90's seasons!

TRADE:

Sooners07 sends Eddie Collins-2B and Round 17 pick (NEW YORK) to Chargingryno for Tris Speaker -OF and Round 19 pick (New England)

Sooners07 to confirm
Confirmed.

Thanks for the trade offers everyone. I couldn't resist speaker, especially after nearly convincing myself to take him over Hornsby (knowing I might get Collins or gehringer)

I considered playing Collins out of position at SS, unfortunately he isn't an elite fielder to start so the penalties to his stats worried me.

And I was going to take him with my next pick............arghh!!
Either we learn something new every day, or myself alone
am get'n a re-education (again) 2'day...

Here goes, but correct me if wrong, but along w/ the great
Andre Agassi, both he & Greg Maddux were BOTH born in
Las Vegas....

Like every 1 else who wants 2 go back 2 Vegas & get their
money back, that's EXACTLY what eye will do, if wrong...

Ha... No $HiT... Wow... Can't believe he wasn't born there...

If if makes you feel any better, I posted on Facebook that Frank Zappa was from northern New Jersey (like me) but he was from Orange County, California. And Roger Clemens seems to think he was born in Texas but as we have learned he is an Ohio boy - I would ask where he got that accent, but I saw Henry Kissinger's brother (the family moved to the US when they were both very young) on some talk show once and he has a completely American accent. The host asked how come he talked that way when Henry has such a thick German accent and his brother said "no one in the family understands why Henry talks like that."

reasonable offers entertained for 6th Round Ohio
7/12/2014 8:04 PM
I went back and forth between a few guys on this pick, I'll settle with    1962 Gaylord Perry- P   Appalachia 
7/12/2014 8:11 PM
Very under-rated pitcher in my view in overall career. Good pick.  He absolutely kills in Out of the Park Baseball solitaire. I have to not draft him sometimes because he seems to guarantee a perennial pennant winner and then there is less challenge.

So is it ok to proceed with round 6? Because I'm all set and ready.
7/12/2014 8:23 PM
No surprise here I'll get this round going with   1992 Mike Piazza- C  Pennsylvania
He probably would of gone higher if not for his bad throwing arm.
7/12/2014 8:25 PM
I will start round 6 off (before going to bed as it is very late here) with: 

Frankie Frisch 2B 1919 from New York
