Default All-Time MLB draft

Allright, we talked about doing this and now let's see if we can get it off the ground. If you'd like to participate, go ahead and say so here and you're in. Once we get enough people involved, we'll establish an order and start drafting. This draft will be at least 25 rounds and possibly more if people would like to go even further with it, that'll be up to everyone who's involved.

So jump on in at any time.

Outstanding. An entry from north of the border and a real shocker, Slap getting invloved in a baseball fantasy draft. Did not see that coming.

That's five teams so far. Plenty of room available for those who'd like to join in.

By the way, I'm open to suggestions on how we should establish the order for the draft. I can put everyone's name in a hat and draw them (I promise not to David Stern this lottery )or we can go by the order in which people signed up (with me taking the last pick of the 1st round, it's going to be a snake draft, so that wouldn't bother me at all) or whatever everyone thinks is fair.

If you've got an idea for establishing the order, feel free to suggest it.

I'm cool with you drawing the order at random.

Well, we've got six teams so far. I'd like to get to ten if possible, but if we can't get any more, we'll just roll with who we've got.

No biggie, it just makes the talent pool that much deeper for the rest of us.

So what're we aiming for here, 3 starting pitchers, 2 releif, a full squad, and a few backups?

DH Rule? What's going on?

I figure we'll go with a normal major league roster, which is 25 players. Everyone can fill in their rosters as they see fit. If you want a five man rotation, cool. If you'd rather go with a 4 man rotation, feel free. Have fun with it.

I've never been a fan of the DH, but if others would prefer to have it, I'm flexible.

Excellent, I was planning to wait until you got in BroncoLB52.

I'll give people until this afternoon to sign up and then I'll draw for the order and we'll get this thing going.

Hey, we should make a definitive decision on the DH thing. If not, we may choose pitches who have hitting ability. If so, we might take a guy who wan't a great fielder.

Go ahead and make the call Clockwork. I'm cool either way.

Glad to have you on board JCM, and yes, Im running this one. Hopefully I can do half as well as you and Old Dude did with the all-time NFL draft.

As for the DH, I'm allright with it unless anyone else has any strong objection to it. I figure that it gives people a little more freedom with their lineup. So unless anyone is dead set against it, we'll go ahead and use the DH in our lineups.

I'll give a little more time and then I'll be doing the lottery to determine the order and we'll put whoever has the first pick on the clock.

Allright, here's the rundown. I'll try to be brief.

The draft will be 25 rounds. That's 25 players on a team, just like in MLB. Once we get to 25, we can talk about going further, drafting guys to go to our respective AAA clubs and whatnot if people are still interested.

Everyone will have 12 hours to make their pick. If your time expires and you haven't made your selection, the next person in line is put on the clock, though you will still be able to make your selection at any time.

This is a snake draft, meaning (for those who might not be familiar with it) that the person who has the last pick of the 1st round gets the first pick of the 2nd round and so forth. That's always seemed like the fairest way to do these things, so that's what we're going with.

I'll be holding a lottery shortly consisting of me placing everyone's name in a hat and drawing them out to determine the draft order. Once that's done, whoever receives the first pick will officially have the clock started on them to make their selection.

That's about it, let's have some fun with this, folks.

I called my Father just to make sure, but the first pick is a no-brainer.

Babe Ruth, OF/P, Yankees/Red Sox
