Draft Value System

Postby NUTZ » Tue Dec 23, 2008 10:54 am

Hello People!
I'am in a 12 team 4 Division's
I started out ok but fell flat on my face.
This year the League wants to us a DRAFT VALUE SYSTEM and I really need your help!

DV System=

The Draft Value System has been put in place for owners to consider keepers for next season. The draft Value is determined by where a player was drafted in the 2008 live draft. e.g. Matt Holiday was selected in Round 1 by the Motown Sabres. He would be a DV1.

Waiver additions are assigned the DV that the player released had. E.g. If Matt Holiday was released for Jay Bruce. Bruce would be a DV1 for this season.

DV's are assigned for the entire season and remain constant. Once a Value has been assigned it does not change until the following year.

If a player was added because an owner placed a player on IR then the new player assumes the DV of the inured player.

At the end of the Year we will subtract 3 from the DV's to determine the Draft Value for 2009. E.G.
Brian Mcann was drafted in the 6th round in 2008. He is a DV6. In 2009 we subtract 3 to make him a DV 3. If the owner who owns the rights to Mcann chooses to he could protect mcann for a 3rd round pick in '09. or Mcann would be his 3rd round pick in '09 if you will.

Players who draft Values fall to zero or below 1 are not eligible to be protected. This keeps the top players in play each year during the draft.
The Idea is to allow owners to build on young and up and coming players while still having to draft smart during the early rounds when picking top flight player's.

Give me some advice as who I should keep with a DVS:
Soto, Geovany C CHC A TBA DV7
Giambi, Jason DH NYY A TBA DV16
Weeks, Rickie 2B MIL A TBA DV17
Kouzmanoff, Kevin 3B SD A TBA DV19
Ramirez, Hanley SS FLA A TBA DV1
Bruce, Jay RF CIN A TBA DV10
Nady, Xavier LF NYY A TBA DV22
Soriano, Alfonso LF CHC A TBA DV2
Bradley, Milton OF TEX U TBA DV21
Thome, Jim DH CHW A TBA DV11

De La Rosa, Jorge SP COL A TBA DV19
Papelbon, Jonathan RP BOS A TBA DV3
Ponson, Sidney SP NYY U TBA DV6
Rivera, Mariano RP NYY A TBA DV4
Sheets, Ben SP MIL U TBA DV8
Valverde, Jose RP HOU A TBA DV6
Wainwright, Adam SP STL A TBA DV16

Jacobs, Mike 1B KC A TBA DV7
Murphy, Daniel LF NYM A TBA DV21
Fukudome, Kosuke RF CHC A TBA DV14

Billingsley, Chad SP LA A TBA DV13
Cueto, Johnny SP CIN A TBA DV20
Martinez, Pedro SP NYM U TBA DV12

Crawford, Carl LF TB DV5

Interesting... Is there a limit on how many you can keep?
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

I owuld keep Bruce who falls to 7, Kouzmanoff at 16, wainwirght at 16 maybe, Dan Murphy at 18, Billingsly at 10, and Cueto at 17. I don't know that you are getting value for anyone else given what they would fall to. Maybe Soto, maybe.

Nady, and Cueto jump out as being good value. Weeks and De LA Rosa could be value sleepers.

i finally got ahold of commish and dv system might be adjusted... After that You are only limited by the number of draft picks you want to give up to protect certain players.
i see Hanley Ramirez has been skipped over....why?

i thank all of you for the replies..very helpful!

Looks like we were all under the assumption that Hanley being a DV1 could not be kept when you subtract 3 from his DV1 status. Correct?
