Sounds simple mkool, but it's not. There is no definitive formula.

And can't you just copy and paste the results into a post? If that doesn't work, you can take a screenshot and post that. Just press the "print screen" button on your keyboard, and then paste the image into paint.

And even a healthy Nomar is definately not deserving of a first round pick, so the fact that he was even slightly injured should have steered you away. There are tons of SS's available this year so 2B is really the only position that has a steep dropoff. Getting Kent or Boone over Rolen would have been good if you wanted to go by position scarcity. But we'll see how it goes with the way you picked. You seemed pretty confident for a person trying out a new method of drafting, so I won't count you out yet.

Cornbread: I'll post them soon. As for 3b being a deep position. I agree, it's deeper than most and has some great potential picks like Glaus and Hinske. I was really surprised Giambi got picked early in the 2nd round. Outfielders and pitchers that were taken afterwards include P. Wilson, Ichiro, Pierre, Sosa, B. Giles, Abreau, Berkman and Schmidt, RJ, and Prior. So you could choose from those guys.

mkooljr1: I used Xeifrank's software with my personal projections to come up with my rankings. But I didn't entirely trust the results.

LBJackal: Boone was taken but Kent was available. I planned on taking M. Giles in the 5th though and that screwed me up.

Good read Bleach, I've been meaning to spend a few minutes reading this since you posted but hadn't had a chance. Thx for taking the time to write out the thought process, good stuff :-)

Hope you keep us updated as to how the league goes. I'm in the Cafe Challenge league myself with 11 other teams...so far Jackal's out to strong lead w/ 92.50 pts, but it's a long season !+)

Hey, thanks for reading. I'm planning an update next week. I haven't made any major moves since draft day so you can figure out how well my team is doing so far fairly easily.

Gone
Adam Everett
Chris Carpenter
Wilson Alvarez
Justin Speier

New Players
Tony Womack (waivers)
Julio Lugo (waivers)
Danny Patterson (free agency)
Byung-Hyun Kim (waivers)

After the first week, I currently reside in 4th place - 16.5 points behind first place, Harper. Not bad considering I have yet to start Nomar, Larry Walker, and Jeromy Burnitz. The teams doing better than me were not the ones I had feared going into this season. I like that. Posada, Rolen and Beckett have been carrying my team.

The Nomar situation seems to be working itself out pretty well. Adam Everett was great for the 3 games I started him in Houston. Right now, with Spivey, Lugo, and Womack manning my middle infield, I plan on starting the best 2 of the 3 for each day depending on matchups.

My outfield is struggling right now. Green hasn't done much. His surgery in the offseason was the same one Brian Giles had and Giles isn't doing a whole lot either. I am beginning to worry about that. I've been starting Salmon every game and Lawton when he faces righties. The stats they have provided have been pretty bad. I've benched Burnitz everyday and will finally start him on Monday in his debut at Coors field. The 2 homeruns Burnitz hit at Chavez Ravine help me feel confident that he will have a great year at Coors.

With a sparking 2.85 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP, my pitching has been terrific so far. Unfortunately, run support has been a major problem as I've only gotten the aid of 6 runs during the 5 starts I made this week. That resulted in getting only 1 win from my starting crew. It should pick up as I have starters from the Astros, Cubs, Marlins, Yankees, and the Red Sox. My 52 K's (thanks Beckett!) would be a league leading stat, but one of the teams pitched more innings than me and holds that category for now.

All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with my team's performance so far. The 2 categories I'm struggling in are OBP and Wins. I feel I'm very strong in these two categories and don't worry about them too much. Steals is going to be a problem all year. I hope to finish middle of the pack in steals. Tony Womack may see extended service until he cools off.
