Happy New Year, Cafe...
Interested in doing another deep 14 team, SLOW MOCK DRAFT and posting it on this site... Last years 14 team SLOW MOCK was incredibly helpful, so looking to recreate that magic again. Here is what I am thinking:
MOCK DRAFT SCORING:
14 teams, mixed (AL/NL), re-draft, standard 5x5 (runs, hr, rbis, steals, avg + wins, k's, era, whip, saves).
MOCK DRAFT ROSTERS:
C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, MI, CI, 5 OF, UTIL, 4 SP, 3 RP, 3 flex P...23 players/ team. No Bench since we are not playing out this league. 23 Rounds = 322 Players TOTAL will be picked. Assume Yahoo based position availability / roster slots.
Time limit will be 24 hours per pick, (although I would prefer 12 hours), but we'll try to avoid ever taking 24 hours to make a pick. We have about 2+ months before the season starts, but if it's all the same to everyone, I'd rather not spend the next two months doing this. It will be far more valuable to all of us, and the cafe community at large, if we can wrap this up in the next 2 weeks.
Please check in as often as you can, and have someone post your pick for you if you know you will be away. If the clock expires, we will skip you and can make up the pick(s) when you return from whatever players are still available. Bookends - you do not get 48 hours to make your pick. Miss your time and we will skip both of your picks. PM the person after you when making your pick, but this is a courtesy only. Don't show your ugly mug here after we've skipped you and blame not getting a PM. You know you're in a draft, you know where it's happening, keep yourself up to date.
We will create a Round by Round Pick Selection, as well as a Roster Thread, where everyone will post their picks and will be kept up to date. If anyone would like to be the Moderator, please volunteer in the comments. Again, this exercise was extremely valuable last year, as we had 100's of comments on picks and logic behind selections, as well as projections from almost everyone who played. This is an excellent draft prep tool as most of the guys mocking this early are fantasy nerds like myself looking to get a leg up on competition!
Sign in sheet is below for anyone interested in joining. Forum moderators - please let me know best way to set this up again...
