    I guess, but if you make some smart picks in the latter rounds and they can turn into stars then you can do some great retaining. Like how Marcuss managed to retain Phillander. Phillander probably would've have been the first person picked in the draft, but Marcuss got him as a round 6 pick.

    Clearly of the opinion that the Oxford dictionary is abstemious from other such words which contain all 5 vowels in the correct order.

    Classy.



    Edit: Or, at least you were being if that sentence doesn't seem clumsily worded. I'm assuming it doesn't because I don't know what abstemious means.

    Harris was still pretty good last year though, wasn't he? I know he perhaps lacked a bit of test longevity but surely he was worth a pick before round 11?

    Thought Ganguly would go under the radar due to his inactivity .

    Was unconvinced about Copeland because he was fairly ordinary last season.
    Was in a rush but he'll score me a few I reckon. Just got a feeling

    Just noticed the immense gap between my next two picks. Hmm. Makes this one a bit tricky.

    Logic behind Hopes is that if I ever need to lengthen the batting lineup then I can drop my 3rd seamer and he and Kallis can cover that role. His bowling has been really good in the last few seasons.

    Yeah, I'm happy that he's a good enough player to be picked at this stage. Just not sure he was exactly what I need ahead of other types of player.
