No that's not correct. YOU have to make a MANUAL pick to move past the guy in FRONT of you. Skipping doesn't happen automatically. If he picks and your proxies are ON, then your pick will get made for you and the draft moves on to the guy AFTER you. Just keep a half dozen names proxied for Wednesday, make sure they are ON - and you'll be fine. If the guy in front of you DOESN'T pick, then the draft sits there waiting for YOU to manual pick and if you never do so, it will sit there forever.

We're trying to curb skips in the early rounds.

The draft has been setup and e-mails have gone out. We officially start tomorrow but I don't mind if those who draft before hallerose (the vacation guy) make their picks.

Please let me know if there are any questions or problems, I will monitor my e-mail continually.

Good Luck !

No idea who Petro picks first but no chance Murray goes #1 overall. That would be twice as absurd as when luckman drafted Pineiro #1 last year.

The site is slow, e-mail from Petrosian say he is having trouble logging in. I got in fine using Chrome. Maybe I can get Adrian to boot the site.

More news - when I click on the Barnstormers 2017 Championship, Chrome took 30 seconds to open the draft.

Well, I logged into Diamond Dope at 6 a.m. EST. Took about 45 minutes using Firefox before I finally was able to connect with the draft. Many times the site timed out. At work I can only use the dated I.E. application. Must have been the high volume of website traffic at the peak time of 3 a.m. PST / 6 a.m. EST. :roll:

Once I did get in, I noticed that none of the new cards appear to have been entered. So if you want Burke, Sanders or House, you will have to roll the dice with the auto draft lottery for picks 16-25. That fact alone renders Murray a viable first pick, otherwise the influx of new R3 super relievers certainly reduces Murray's uniqueness. So really, if you want to be certain of employing a super reliever strategy, you will have to draft Murray, Sutter or Wilhelm fairly high. Pineiro is an even better pick than Murray. That was a brilliant pick by Marc, but may not be as high a priority at 100M and is certainly more committal than I like, as I prefer to keep all options for park direction, and thus team composition, open after the first pick.

I was going to take Ruth - the pitcher -- first but upon reviewing many teams, even in League '34 he usually can't even hit 60 taters for me at 100M whereas other guys play him in Forbes and he hits 70+. So my first pick is still up in the air. I will try to make it tonight, assuming I can get into the diamond dope draft application. If not, I'll just post it here, by no later than 8 p.m.

For me, Chrome took 30 seconds to log in but after that, searches for players was it's normal 8-15 seconds or so to move from screen to screen.

Really Petro ? You cant go in and make ONE PICK so that 23 other picks can start to go ?

Just logged in via I.E. at work. Only took about 3 minutes. So I guess it is functional.

Adrian may have rebooted at my request.

ok cancel that, Adrian REPLIED - the site is HOSTED but keep messing around with it. It's not that bad TO ME. Logging in took me 30 seconds but smooth sailing after that. (well its still slow but reliably slow.)

I have it narrowed down to three players. I can pick earlier, perhaps even by noon.
