I've been itching to do a mock draft for a few weeks now and the Cafeholics have thrown down the gauntlet to us non-Cafeholics to have a mock and compare results. Already some have expressed interest so I propose we have an "amateur" mock draft next week. I don't have any specific guidelines other than I think it should be a 12 team, 23-25 round draft with standard rotisserie 5x5 scoring and a normal Yahoo roster layout. I'm thinking a slow Cafe mock would be best as it is free. Bigken has been kind enough to offer a separate message board for this purpose.
I'm trying get my crap together to launch a blog on fantasy baseball this year so I'm using this also as an excuse to start it up with some mock draft/ADP analysis and rankings. I'd love it if afterwards people could contribute some thoughts of their own and I would of course post them on the blog. It would just be a short paragraph on your strategy along with some of your favorite and not-so favorite picks. I plan on doing some round by round analysis as well.
All the blog stuff is optional of course. If you're itching to do a mock as bad as I am, join up. I just ask that you can get to a computer at least a few times a day and take it seriously, please. It would suck to get all this together and have someone bail.
Draft order will be randomized and we would probably start a day after we filled the league. (Perhaps Sunday morning if there is alot of interest and it fills quickly!)
I'm going to work shortly and will be back this afternoon. The people who have expressed interest in this so far are:
1. El Burro
9 more spots open. Please feel free to give suggestions if you have them. Thanks alot
