Thread: New project looking for participants

  1. #1

    New project looking for participants

    seeing if there is interest (from my similar thread)

    particpants will get 1 or more teams

    teams will be drafted first after random draw

    teams will be those available from my SOM computer inventory

    after drafting teams, each team will be allowed 1 draft pick

    the draft picks will be in reverse order of team picks

    certain restriction will apply (from experience)

    1. player drafted must be from season I have on computer
    2. no dead ball era pitchers allowed
    3> only 1 player / year can be selected, for example if someone drafts 1965 Willie Mays, no other Mays card can be drafted
    4) we can play a full season simulation or a tournament all games auto run on computer
    5) Babe Ruth may or may not be designated ineligible
    6) more rules can be determined


    -------------------------

    it may be prudent to only have live ball era players / teams (sorry Ty Cobb fans)

    maybe teams players from 1920-2009 as long as it is from a season I have on computer

    also it is a good idea to limit # of teams one single franchise can have - somewhere between 2 and 4 depending on how many teams are finally included if this takes off at all

    ideal would be 32 teams and no more than 4 from one franchise

    broken into 4 - eight team groups for either a full season or a tourney (or other options - one is each team in a 8 team group plays the other in a best of 7 series and then series records and total w-l record determine the winner of that group)

    then the 4 winners advancing in a plyoff format

    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

    1950-1989

    1993, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008, 2009

    I also have these teams in oldtimer format on computer (no LR splits):

    Well, since I'm the guy who brought it up, I'm certainly interested. I've never played SOM before though, so you'll have to pardon my ignorance of certain things.

    Some questions I have:

    You mentioned the "only one player / year" rule, and used 1965 Willie Mays as an example. What about player/team? Like, if someone had the 1954 Giants, would that make 1965 Mays ineligible for the draft?

    How would we go about drafting teams and players? Would we do it here on the message board?

    Would there be a limit on the number of times each franchise can be used? Obviously, if we had 32 teams, some franchises would have to be used more than once, but it'd be kind of boring if we had seven Yankee teams or something.

    I f someone took the 1954 Giants (I actually dont have that year) one other Mays card could be drafted

    everything about drafting etc would be done here on the forum

    a lot of trust woul dhave to be involved as I would draw cards etc for draft picks and autoplay theganmes,

    knowledge of SOM is not necessary, just a way to produce results

    the main contribution for each particpant would be drafting a team and then the player and perhaps set lineups and rotations

    my goal would be to have 32 teams with no more than 4 teams per franchise (or 3 or even 2)

    You don't have 1954? Up above you said you have 1950-89 on your computer.

    I'm assuming if someone took the 1965 Giants that 1965 Mays couldn't be drafted, right?

    If we limit the number of times a franchise can be used, could we also make a rule that multiple uses of a franchise have to have a certain gap between them? Say, 5-10 years? That way we'd have more variety among the participating rosters.

    Anyway, it sounds like fun, so you can count me in.

    my mistake

    I have 1954 in the "cadillac" version

    most seasons prior to 1960 are "chevy" seasons

    except the recreated (researched every box score) seaons and I had those in cards and to buy them is about 3x the cost of a chevy season

    Sounds good to me, if it stays simple.

    very simple

    draft a team, draft a player set to autoplay
