    Are You kidding???!!!! I for one am not OK with that Idea. Infact I go so far to say that I would rather quit the draft altogether than go along with what would essentially restart the draft.
    Just my two cents on the issue.

We can also have a vote on who has the best team before we run the first sim.
    I just thought of something rather important - will the 2nd and 3rd seasons have the players be the same? Or will they age?

    well i hope they age... makes it more realistic and probably the stats would change more than if they stayed the same... and does somebody know how many rounds we're doing? i dont think we have set that in stone yet.

    Of course, aging them gives us the problem that old players will become useless, but we won't have information on future rookies, since they haven't played in the majors yet. Guesses based on stats from the minors are limited at best. We'll lose more players than we'll gain.

    yeah... well does OOTP improves or decline ratings cuz of performance and age? and wouldnt they have ratings on the guys who just playing this year or prospects in the minors? and again... whos really gonna draft someone older than say 38? well i know im not.

    This is 3 consecutive years, so if you draft someone like Curt Schilling, you're taking the risk that he may be useless by the 3rd year.

    Here's what I know about OOTP (Evan, feel free to correct any inaccuracies):

    The game does not come pre-loaded with players. Numerous MLB roster sets can be downloaded for free, however. The most accurate of these is probably the CubbyFan23 set, which includes ALL players, majors and minors (I haven't tested it out myself, but that's what it's been in previous versions. All players are given overall and potential ratings, overall based on stats, and potential based on a whole bunch of people looking at it and making adjustments. Players get better and worse with age, at a rate defined by the person who creates the roster pack using options from the game.

    Man, I wish I'd paid attention to that sooner...

    I've always gotten the impression that getting half way accurate ratings on players based on time in the minors is next to impossible. It's obvious that some won't be any good in the majors, and there's a few standouts that will probably do pretty well in the majors. But there's always those can't miss players that end up never getting anywhere. And even of those that make it, it's hard to have any idea if they'll be decent, or if they'll be amazing.

    But if that's all we have to work with...

    Hey Williamsburg, you have Ortiz listed as 6.5 million, but mlb4u says he got a new contract for 12.5 million a year.

    + later signed 4-year EXTENSION worth 52M thru 2010 on 4/10/06- + the deal supersedes option for 2007 and includes a Team Option for 2011 worth 12.5M or no buyout- + he receives a 2M signing bonus payable in 3 installments in 2006 and salaries of 12.5M each year in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010

    Also, just an FYI for everyone - the ML minimum is $380,000.

    There are some other sites you can use - although since mlb4u is the site we're officially using, any discrepancies means we go by the info on mlb4u.

    When making ratings? I'm not sure. I think it does, but not a huge adjustment.

    I almost took Wang on 4 separate occasions (rounds 5-8) but I couldn't pull the trigger. Good pick and I knew he wouldn't last after that. Hey you might want to consider a smaller picture also. That thing is huge!

    That's what she said

    On a serious note I'm suprised he lasted this long...a cheap pitcher like him I would have thought would have gone earlier

    Thats what she said about what? Him almost taking wang on four seperate occasions, or that thing being huge? Works both ways.
