  • Anybody interested in starting/running a draft league of some sort?

    seems like it has been years since we have done so. Something we can sim would be best - but it was even fun when we just had everyone vote too. Anything to make this cold, pandemicy, boring winter go fatser.

    If it is draft that we do not have to do a sim, I ill run it.

    We can do A-Z again, an all-lefty team, any gimmick we want.

      Sure! It has been a while. Count me in.

        I'm willing to play...but let's not draft so fast where people are expected to pick almost immediately. That is very hard for some of us.

          It is always about striking a balance. If we go TOOOOOOOO long between picks, people get disinterested. We can find a reasonable balance.

            Any suggestions on what to do? I would like to avoid a decade draft. We could do a HOFers-only draft. Or a non-HOFers draft.

            I am shooting for 8 people, though 6 would be fine.

            Snake draft. We can do team-vote bracket to determine a winner.

              Intriguing, I was huge into fantasy baseball back in the day, but never involved with an all-time draft structure, this would be fun, and yes, FREAKING pandemic winter and doesn't feel like normal will really happen until 2022.

                Don't worry, do any kind of draft you like....I probably will be last in judgment (but first in happiness!) because often I draft my favorites too much...even if I need another position more....

                    I'll play. I'll try to think of a couple of possibilities if the format isn't picked in the next day or so.

                      A HOF-only or No HOF draft seems like fun to me.

                        Count me in. I had fun in the coupla drafts I've participated in, one of which I remember was an A-Z.
                        Put it in the books.

                          There's 6. I hope we can get two more. Last chance to speak-up about ideas or I will pick one

                            Not original thoughts, but the A-Z draft I was in years ago was fun, and the idea of non-HOF teams sounds good too. We'd have to find some way to eliminate recent retirees, guys eligible for the HOF, etc. There probably are other good options, but I haven't had any time to think about possibilities.

                              A-Z is fine with me too.
