    I think it's very simple- we just didn't have anybody to drive us to the finish line. If Roy could have stayed around, we'd have our winners by now.

    I think I would be giving you the 1961 Phillies. Maybe the 42 Phillies.

    It may have been easier to choose if we were only able to choose only last place teams with the same guidelines.

    Yeah I have no problem with that, hopefully this draft didn't burn anyone out if we do a original type draft.
    Won't burn me out. I'm always up for a draft - especially now that it's getting colder.

    If I simply vote based on best teams overall, I get one result. If I vote on creativity, problem solving and such it's the absolute opposite.

    On a 1-7 scale, that's 28 maximum points available. I give every team a 4 and call it a tie and just some fun to do during a slow period.

    Ohh. I just thought of something that could have been really sweet in doing this. Remember when we selected draft slots? What if, instead of selecting where to draft, each team would get a random team who they'd choose a franchise for? Maybe I had the #1 selection with ChiSox as the team I need to find a franchise in which he has to improve. Maybe as the #1 pick I give him the '62 Mets to work with....?

    That to me would be interesting becuase we'd all likely start with dogmeat teams and try to make them viable. But hindsight is always 20/20.

    If I had to give a team to Johnny Shoes, it'd be a light-hitting, heavy-pitching team lol.

I liked the premise, but the backend is too subjective imo, and basically will be a runaway by whomever simply took the best team to work with.

    As so far as a sim, I have OOTP, but cannot figure out how to add players & teams and such. If anybody can help, it'd be much appreciated.

    Yeah, it's easy to forget/lose interest/miss the deadlines when they're so far apart, and almost no posts were made. I still haven't even figured out my finalized roster because I got so caught up in other things. I'll get it up soon.

    It would be interesting to find out who won and I think a sim would be the best way to go with this one.

    Well, this draft really died. I think the week-long wait made a lot of people lose interest. Are we going to vote, or does someone have a simulator that can just declare the winners for us? Didn't Ben Grimm say he had a simulator that we might be able to use?

    I don't know what a sim really is but Tyrus did one in the last draft we had for the fun of it.
