    Right, forgot to clarify that. Thanks.

    CF can play anywhere in the OF, and LF/RF are interchangable. SS can play 2nd base. 200 IP for SP, 40 IP for RP.

    I'd rather go over each rule individually, if we can, just to make sure. But for the most part, it'll be very similar, if not the same.

    Did you mean 40 IP or 40 relief appearances? Because 200 IP is a pretty high bar for starters, but 40 IP is pretty tiny, even for a reliever.

    JM: Only did that for a couple of years and then we had a conspiracy so it kind of turned me sour. Our league's commissioner, Lew Ford(notes) at the time, was doing some shady things that ... I'd rather not talk about [laughs].
    DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
    JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].

    Alright, how about 160 IP and 50 IP.

    I've never been great at deciding the numbers for requirements .

    If we can choose even the flukiest of seasons from a player, shouldn't strike years be eligible? If they're eligible as long as they meet the requirements (using 120 GP as a minimum) all position players from 81 and 94 are ineligible. If you made it a 70% or 80% of team games played rule, then they would, but as it stands, only pitchers from those years would be eligible. Perhaps we should modify that rule? Thoughts?

    I have nothing against using strike years. I just chose a number of games played that sounded about right. It doesn't seem fair to only allow pitchers from then - how many games would work? How about 110 games?

    Oh, and how about only 85 games for catchers?

    after further consideration, washizzle will have to decline this draft, due to other commitments that would detract from the excitement of baseball.
    I don't have the voice to be an announcer, the writing skills to be a writer, or the connections to be an agent. Guess I'll just have to give up that dream of being involved in baseball. Or buy a team. Yea, that should work.

    Just want to make sure I have this right.

    We are going to first draft the teams we are to use for this project using a snake draft format with 2 rounds so everyone has 2 teams to choose players from correct?

    Then we are going to draft players from those teams with any player's season being eligible as long as they spent all or part of the season with that team? Player can only be chosen once per team though. So someone having the Yankees couldn't have 6 Babe Ruth's? Exception example being someone having the Reds/Mariners could have 2 Ken Griffey's. One from a Mariners season and one from a Reds season correct?

    25 total rounds with no more than 20 players chosen from one team correct?

    Did we settle on strike shortened seasons being used and minimal number of games/IP?

    We now have fourteen. IMO, we should just start now, and exclude the two undrafted teams.

    I'd rather wait untill the proposed time to start. Maybe there are others out there that wish to play. let's give them some more time.

    I don't think we "draft" from our teams; there's no point...no one can take players from other teams, you have exclusive right to all player-seasons on your teams.

    Good point. So we put together a team for a simulated season and/or to be voted on?

    Seems stupid to allow any more people to join now. We've got 15, enough for each people to have two franchises, and whoever gets the Yankees will also get a very poor franchise.

    Since we have our 15, how about we go ahead and start?
