    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?

    We have 15, so I'll close the registration. I'll randomly determine the draft order, and post it here. If it's your pick, you can pick now, but I won't hold it against you if you aren't ready till tomorrow, since that's the stated start time. I will PM everyone, just as an FYI.

    When my team beats yours, you'll realize the benefits of having a late pick.

    Oh, I know the benefits of a late pick. I also know the advantages of an early pick. I also know that a random number generator is just that - random.

    If a player played on more than one team in a year, you can use him if he was with your team for at least 40 games.

    Do you get his rate stats for his games on your team, or his stats for the full season?

    I'm not sure I like the 5 players from each team rule. I purpose that rule is removed. Either that or at least lowered to 1 player from each team if you want it so that each team is at least represented. I think it should be up the the owners descretion as to how many they want to choose from each team. If a owner chooses to use 25 players from 1 team they are essentially playing one franchise against two. Which in itself is a disadvantage. But if should be left up to that owner to decide.

    I agree, now that it's just post-1961, only one per team is necessary. But both franchises should be represented.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I'll say you only need one from the other team - and he can even be on your bench.

    I've updated the first page to list the rules.
