View Full Version : 1980's MLB Draft

This one is gonna be fun!

Concept: We will be drafting baseball players who played in the 1980's. They can't have been retired in 1980 and they can't have been rookies in 1989. The best assembled baseball team that represents the 80's wins.

The way this will be judged is that each of us will rank each other's teams other than our own. The rankings will be PM'd to me and I will collect them. That way you don't see the other guys rankings and spite him purposely because he ranked you low.

Looking for 6-8 teams.

Roster:
C
1B
2B
SS
3B
LF - Had to have played Left Field.
CF - Had to have played Center Field.
RF - Had to have played Right Field.

RP - Cannot pick a another closer to fill this spot, even if he had set up experience.

Manager:

Draft Time: TBD
Draft Clock: 1PM-12AM Midnight
You have a 1 hour time limit until your first skip.
You have a 30 min time limit after your second skip.
You have a 10 min time limit there after.

If you won't make it, turn in a list.

Don't bother signing up if you won't make your picks in a timely manner.

Bret Saberhagen became the youngest player to ever win the Cy Young Award, when he collected the honor at the age of 21 in 1985. That season he won Game Seven of the World Series, leading the Royals to their first World Championship. Also during that series, he became a father, as he lived a storybook season. In 1989, Saberhagen won his second Cy Young, posting 23 wins with a 2.16 ERA, after going 18-2 in his last 20 decisions and blazing a miniscule 1.29 ERA over the last two months of the season.

1985 AL Cy Young
1985 ML WS MVP

Eddie Murray

http://home.comcast.net/~seankatie/images/murrayrc.jpg

The greatest switch-hitter since Mickey Mantle, Eddie Murray solidified the great Baltimore Orioles teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Though he never won an MVP Award, Murray finished in the top ten eight times, and was in the top five in voting for five straight seasons, from 1981-1985. He joined Willie Mays and Hank Aaron as the only players to collect 3,000 hits and 500 home runs in their career.

I'll take Harold Baines and John Franco... I'm not sure what else I need... but when we're done drafting, I think we should post our rosters and the accomplishments of each of our players

Quick question - I need two relief pitchers. Can they be any pitcher or only guys that are relief. I know it said not closers, but just thought I could possibly draft another starter or closere to fill my roster since we are almost done.

Also I like the idea of posting rosters and accomplishments.

Can we possibly finish this? There's only a few picks left...

Should we just make our last few picks when we can so we can finish this.
