MLB Open Draft Part Deux
A few weeks back, we had our draft for the TCR MLB Open league. We had enough willing participants for a seconds league and their draft was Saturday. I wasn't in this league, but reader "big lowitzki" is and provided me with the draft results. A quick reminder of the rules first:
H2H weekly play
Set your lineups weekly
Point system (Single = 1, Double = 2, Triple = 3, Home Run = 4, Run = 1, RBI = 1, Walk = 1, Stolen Base = 2, Caught Stealing = -1 )
Draft entire Pitching Staff, not individual pitchers (basically Wins, K's, ERA and WHIP are counted)
That's the basics, so let's see how they drafted.
It's a twelve team league and here's the owners/teams that joined, by draft order (please correct me if I'm wrong on the usernames).
Hondurascubs - a reader from Honduras that goes by Salvador
Lawhide - same as his username and the guy who wrote this guest article
Out of Bubblegum - We'll call him Bill
Junkie Cosmonauts - We'll call him Dan
McRipper - goes by the same username
The Tarnished Reps - Real Neal
Ted Lilly Fan Club - TLFC or his super computer, we're not sure
Take it in da Pujols - "asecrest"
The Big Lowitzki - the commish who missed his own draft
Northbrook Cubs - We'll call him Bob
Terpopouli2 - goes by Terpopouli
Starfighters of aldamur - "Wedge2"
So let's see how they did (click on the image for a larger version).
Since Big Lowitzki missed the draft I don't have any comments to give you on the picks, except how in holy hell did Hanley Ramirez make it to the 12th pick? Those who were there are certainly welcome to justify their draft in the comments though.
Otherwise our seasons start this week and I'll give periodic updates on both leagues throughout the year.
Geo Soto leaves the WSux and signs with the Angels who lost Chris Ianetta to the Mariners.
Except that he gave up Russell and McKinney for a half-season of Hammel...
Beane cam at least point and laugh at Hammel.
The genius Angelo traded Olsen at Martzs request
"they just fade away"
(Except in the cases of no-fade lefties like Moyer, Orosco and Rich Hill.)
I am sure Jonathon Mota will be signed next.
AZ Phil, what is your thoughts on Domonic Brown as a reclamation project?
He also played LF in deference to Curtis Granderson.
Meh... other moves to make...hope to see a move or two soon.
Hak-Ju Lee signs a minor league contract with SF Giants.
Some closure on the 6 degrees of Separation for Matt Garza/Chris Archer
