I think the hard part is the rushing to get paid and start the break. Next time you should see if BO will lock prices with a deposit, then calculate the slot prices and collect money. Once money is collected, order the cards. Do the draft 2 hours before the break.

I still think you did a great job with this one, but just offering suggestions. This one feels a little rushed. And the draft clock is pretty long. We should make it more like Fantasy sports drafts. 2 minute clock. Give people plenty of time to set a draft order etc...

Kudos Chris. As I've said in the past, you have a knack for this. I think you will be a very successful case breaker with each break you do.

Oh, none of the random comments were directed at me, I know that.

When I get a bad random in a break, I mention it too.

It is just a headache as far as organization and tracking... of course, I did make it a 90 spot break. DOH!

haha

That's easy for you to say that since you just #1 and #2. I feel bad for Troy who had 9 slots and his highest was a #12. I know it's random, but I can understand his frustration. Also, qbstud got 3 spots in the top 10. It is what it is, but let people vent.

I agree 100%. For the small amount these breaks are the less work the better.
Less work for Houdini the better. He goes above and beyond to make sure those who do not get a good hit get something from his personal stock. (well he did last break)

easier the better.............

I couldn't afford the $600 deposit at the moment. I could lend the break the $ I did only because I knew it was coming back within hours.

The MAIN reason we were rushing is because Monday is a holiday and I didn't want to make the group wait until Tuesday. I did warn everyone that we needed a quick payment too.

Thanks though - I appreciate it.

Nothing wrong with venting. The host can feel a bit attacked by it though - even when its certainly not intended that way.

Please, lets not allow this to become one of THOSE types of group breaks where guys get mad at each other.

I feel bad for Troy too, but it is just the picks - you can get the best random and have the worst break and vice versa. He has some karma coming, no doubt. (Or some 2008 Razor Letterman )

As for qbstud, good for him!

As you know if you have been in my other breaks, I want EVERYONE to get something. You don't have to break even (part of the value is the fun), but I do want you to be happy overall with the break.

yo houdini, turns out i could be around for the draft after all. give me about ten or fifteen minutes before just going to my rankings, at least for my two higher picks. the two low ones are enough of a crapshoot that i don't care as much, though. thanks.

I will pay for an Angels slot from any of the three breaks plus my next pick (16 I think) in Group 3.

PM me if you want to trade.

I know...it is what it is. I'm not happy with the picks that I got, but I don't blame anyone. It's just how things worked out. It's not complaining...it just sucks...period. Not your fault...not anyone's fault. It's just not a good draft for me. That's all. I'm going to make the most of it. Like I did the last time. I'm all for getting wrappers! I've had great luck with the Wrapper redemptions. Gerrit Cole AU, Bryce Brentz AU, Drew PomeranzAU + 3 black border sets. BRING ON THE WRAPPERS BABY!

Hey guys, please do not take offense to my comments regarding my BAD LUCK! You win some - you lose some. Looking forward to a great break, and many more. Troy
