ok, figured with the playoffs starting soon, it'd be cool to have a draft. The catch is you can only pick players from teams on the roster of the 8 MLB teams that make the playoffs...

Looking for ideally 5 more to join

Time limit is 2 hours, it will be strictly enforced.
The clock on weekdays at 3:30 and will end around 10:30 EST(picks can made in between)
On weekends, 10:30 EST- 10:30. These can change, just ground rules for now.
Boards are STRONGLY encouraged...

it'd be

5 starters
8 position players(no DH)
2 B-pen
1 Closer
1 manager

Order:
Chucky
Billingsley
Royheezy
Scottyboy
KCJ
Jensen


of course the draft wouldn't start until the 8 teams are official, so some time in the next week or two...

We should start this now and only do the AL. We can do a full one later.

We'd obviously have to have less than a full team though.

we could, but with 6 guys and 4 teams, it wouldnt really work.

i think we can wait a bit.

Ya I think we can wait. Give it like 4 more days and we'll have a clear picture and we'll be good to go.

yea the AL is all but set with Angels, Indians, Yanks and Boston.

the NL is tougher with the Mets, Phils, Pads, D'Backs, Brewers and Cubs all fighting.

wow nice and quick Chucky lol. I'm gonna be pretty loose on the limit tonight since we're just starting it w/o a set date, but tomorrow, the before listed clock times will be in effect

Billingsley26
10-03-2007, 07:53 PM
David Ortiz...hes just an animal in the playoffs, so I will take him. Arod may be the best regular season player, but we'll see how he holds up in October.

This is taking tonites games into account right? Because if not, then some of us would be set back.

Are we drafting players based on the regular season or on their past playoff experience?

Its a current playoff draft based on this year. Really, the regular season doesnt mean anything. I mean it got them here, but we all know Arod can hit 50 during te year, but do jack all in the playoffs.
