Draft Discussion

Postby chris8 » Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:02 am

Use this thread for discussion about the draft. As per usual with these threads, please don't mention names of undrafted players! Thank you!

Again, as per usual, we will allow 12 hours for a pick to be made, at least in the early stages. If time is pressing as the draft progresses, we made need to shorten that window.

Please remember to PM the person after you when you have made your pick, and if you are going to be away for a while, then send a list of your choices to someone else, so we can keep the draft ticking along. Thanks ;-D

I'm offering my services of making a pick for anyone who goes past the 12 hour mark, or if you need to pass of picks because you will be a way from a computer for a while, whatever. If anything is needed from an outside/unbiased party, feel free to ask. Good luck guys! ;-D

We're just waiting for one or two to check in, and then we'll be ready to start.

The official 12-hour timer will start midnight Fri/Sat this week, but if you are ready to make your pick before then, go ahead and do so.

Best of luck! ;-D

Jesus, I need to get my baseball shizz together. I guess that gives me three days to get draft ready though, which isn't any worse than cramming for a final.

You're not alone in that! All my baseball prep so far has been a) getting this sorted, and b) figuring out Minor League draft picks in my dynasty league. Now I need to get my head round a "normal" baseball draft!

I've done some desultory reading, but nothing like real draft prep. I've been hammering away at way too may hoops leagues this year and just didn't get started as early as I normally do. I should have a multi-page, colour-coded, link-enabled, pro-approved spread sheet by friday though. Provided my wife doesn't kill me first for spending exactly every spare moment pouring over stats and color coding spread sheet tabs. :-b

If you don't hear from from me it's because my wife finally broke and I'm buried in the back yard, next to the cat. ;-D

I'm here and I don't think that I can go wrong with the first overall pick.

Didn't expect to start so soon, but that's cool, hopefully it's a sign of a fast moving draft.

Amen to that!

Easy choice for me at #3. There are a clear top 3 in most people's minds this year - so it was always going to be whichever one didn't go in the top 2.
