Anyone Interested in a Historical Mock Draft?

Postby LCBOY » Mon Feb 23, 2004 8:40 pm

Just wanted to see if anyone would like to have some fun and have a historical fantasy baseball draft. I think it would be fun! Would Babe Ruth be the #1 pick. Or would it be Walter Johnson or Honus Wagner?...

LCBOY, you read my mind. I was about to post this today.

And there is no way Ruth is 2nd.

By the way, I'm in. Definitely. :-)

It depends of the format, right? Roto or points league? 4x4, or 5X5,, or 8x8? It would be fun. I might be temped to take Walter Johnson #1 with all his 30 win seasons, CGs, Ks, low WHIP, etc...

I'd like to have a 12-16 team draft. Would 16 teams be too much?

How would you do this:
1.) Take the person's best year
2.) Take their overall totals
3.) Take their season Avg's
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

Interesting questions. I thought that maybe we can form eras like 1920, 30s 40s...etc. and maybe only draft players from that era. What say you Cafe? I'm open to any suggestions...

If he takes Arod from you, then you can take Wagner from him.
