  • Suburbs of Cooperstown Draft

    --This thread will be reserved exclusively for participants in this project to make their picks of the best players outside Cooperstown. Any posts except for actual picks will be deleted. There is a separate thread up for discussion of this project. Please direct all comments, suggestions, etc to that thread.
    --We will be picking 10 teams of 20 players each. The rosters will consist of the starting lineup, a backup C, backup IF and backup OF, 5 starting pitchers, one relief ace and either three additional bench players or two bench players and a second reliever. Once we have elected the 200 members of the Suburbs of Cooperstown we will have a supplemental draft to get the rosters to 25 and run a sim (or sims) with the teams. The simulation is strictly a secondary project though and this draft is being conducted strictly on the basis of "most deserving outside Cooperstown" and not to build the best sim team.
    --The eligible pool will be all players on the BWAA 2009 ballot with the exception of Rickey Henderson (we are assuming he will be elected), all players who might be considered by the VC and Negro Leaguers who might be considered if that pool were to be revisited. The intent of this project is to be as inclusive as possible. The only players speciificly excluded are; active players, players who retired after 2003, ineligible players and players who careers were primarily outside the United States.
    --The draft will officially commence at midnight EST, February 20, Picks may be made prior to that, but the clock will not start running until then. The clock will be 18 hours from the previous pick, although participants are encouraged to pick as promptly as possible when their turn comes around. For participants at the either end of the draft the 18 hours will be their clock for making both their picks.

    Pick #1--Bert Blyleven
    Seen on a bumper sticker: If only closed minds came with closed mouths.
    Some minds are like concrete--thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
