Free 5x5 Mock Draft Software

Postby Xeifrank » Mon Jan 13, 2003 12:44 am

It's free, and it's easy to use. It comes complete with 2003 player projections, which can be easily modified. You draft against a league full of computers. Practice your different draft strategies to see how successful they are. It's not easy to beat the computer, but give it a try.

Good luck.

Thanks, that is a fun mock draft system. IT is tough to beat the computer. I think it is in part because it seems to underate certain players and overate others. This can't be avoided and is subjective. For those who try it out realize that closer values in particular are not adjusted for what will happen this year. So your sleeper closers may not get you any saves in this system.

Oh, I can't wait to get home and try this out! Two questions though:

  1. How did you arrive at your projections for the players?
  2. In the pitcher and hitter text files, what are the order of the stats? Column headings in the text files might be nice.


Thanks for the software!

Yes, but what order are the stats in? Some of them are obvious, some aren't.

But I think the stats are projections for next year, so looking them up on ESPN won't help.

I'm sorry I don't completely understand this, but how do you get it so you don't have to draft every team? Thanks for the help.

What do you mean? Go file/open/league configuration/ then choose 10 or 12 team. Then open the player database (file/open/hitters or pitchers) for a draft of the whole majors open pitchers3 and hitters3.
