  • Should we show ALL of our changes for a team at once? Or, can we show change 1 first, then a bit later changes 2 and 3, etc., until we have completed all our roster moves?

      either / or

      as long as you LIST the moves like I suggested


      examples
      1) drafted 1977 Joe Morgan
      2) upgraded Jim Lonborg to 1976 season
      etc


      and also show the roster moves as suggested

      then showing roster moves/cuts
      1) Morgan replaces Ollie Brown (?) on the roster
      etc
      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)

          you remember the old joke?

          He was nicknamed "Downtown" Ollie Brown and some radio guy said "must have been a small downtown"

              Lol no I never heard that one.

              One last question and I know should check the rules but what about Jimmy Foxx, can he be my thirdbaseman? He was somewhat limited at third.

                Very liberal in position requirements:

                A player on your team who played CF THE YEAR YOU ARE USING HIM, can play any OF position. Corner OF can play
                either corner OF position. In both tof the previous cases, a player must have played 3 games as a CF to qualify as a CF and 3 games as a RF/LF to qualify as a corner OF. Infielders must have played 3 games at the position you are using him for. Catchers must have played 1 game as a catcher. Any pitcher can be considered a reliever, but to qualify as a starter the pitcher must have started 3 games.


                I'm adhering strictly to players in their natural positions, but that's just me. However, I do grade that way when voting. If somebody like Foxx does indeed play 3B, I downgrade your team's infield defense as it's one of the areas I include.

                  he has to only have played 3 games at 3B, then he is qualified to use all his PA at 3B

                  • When we list our roster changes- either all at once for a team, or step by step- should we do it in our existing roster post, or should we each create a new "change" post for each team?

                      you can do it any time with a dealine of Monday Nov 26

                      it might be easier to list all your roster changes and then your finalized roster at once

                      (there is no need to go "in turn" one by one)

                        Hobbs mentioned to me to create a separate post for your modified roster, and within it, show which players were "upgraded", added and subtracted.

                        • Interesting. Out of the first 7 initial rosters entered, I think I'm the only one using a 14/11 hitter/pitcher split.

                            but there is nothing preventing you drafting a position player and replacing a pitcher on your final roster

                              Please let me know honest evaluation.

                              1) Do you like the format (stock teams with limited modifications)?

                              2) Each member gets TWO teams - which gives lots of flexibility and doesn't poison the draft with someone getting lucky with the first draft choice.

                              3) The adding of players PLUS the option of "upgrading" a player using only "1/2" a move

                              4) the timeline suggested in advance

                              5) the parameters enjoined for this draft (what years/teams are available, what years are eliminated after a year/team is chosen, usage criteria, etc.)

                              6) the way I have "run" it so far

                              7) anything else

                              Any comments, constructive criticism, suggestions, or other feedback is welcomed
                              There is a lot I like about this draft, including the way you've organized it. BUT, and this is a big but, there appears to be one major drawback, at least for me. This draft lacks the dynamic tension of most other drafts. Usually we are drafting players in a snake-thread fashion. We are competing directly with other owners for players; we can see their- and our own- rosters grow step by step; and we can see their strategies. That is really interesting to me. this format offers none of that. It's sort of like playing a round of golf and then, in the clubhouse, comparing your score with somebody who played in another foursome.

                              That said, I'm enjoying it- it just doesn't have the drama that other drafts do.

                                I agree, But I suppose we may as well try something new. My biggest complaint is I don't know if I'll be able to call my teams SouthSide Hitmen 7 and 8
