Offseason Idea

Postby davidmarver » Sat Sep 09, 2006 4:22 am

With the fantasy offseason -- and thus the dropoff in FBC activity -- just around the corner, I thought I'd throw an idea to help kill some of the offseason time.

We could run an entire MLB draft. Yes, thirty teams, 25 man rosters, and every player is eligible. I figure it'd be fun and, afterwards, someone could even run a simulation using next season's video games.

The football cafe ran something like this -- I'm far too lazy to see if the baseball cafe has -- but I thought it'd be fun.

Let me know if you're interested. ;-D

I'll take the Royals

We do make the draft the same order as the MLB draft right?(top 5 pick... ;-D )

I'll take the Cardinals if you need somebody.

Great idea. I think we could make it a long drawn-out draft too which would make it more fun. To get more participants, we could have multiple managers per team, maybe 2 or 3. Each group could discuss their potential upcoming picks in their respective team forums (which aren't really used otherwise). I dunno, I'm just throwing ideas out there, tell me what you think.

Presumably, if no-one's keeping anyone, it doesn't matter which team you are? Unless we're going to try to keep within the actual teams' payroll? Nonetheless, consider me interested.
