Fantasy MLB 2012 Slowdraft: Pretty much done!

edited March 2012 in Debate and/or Discourse
Most of this OP shamelessly stolen from @deadonthestreet 's thread last year

Baseball season is bearing down on us, and with it comes the hallowed game of Fantasy Baseball! The draft will be conducted over the next few weeks, so if you draft Prince Fielder with your first pick, and he decides to become juice-fasting yogi a week before the season starts, you can't change your pick!

Link to the league:
http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/dnd

Link to the google docs draft sheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvYOhtLt4nPSdFFDcTZ6Wm5sc0p4S2RrWFV5Ujk1Y0E

Same rules as last year: random draft order, snake draft, 24 hours to pick. Signups are open but returning managers will be given preference. We had 14 teams last year, and currently have eight or nine returning managers, or maybe more, leaving around five open spots. We may be able to have more than 14 teams if interest is high, though, so if you are interested by all means contact us! PMs with email addresses should be sent to @deadonthestreet or myself, and we will add as we can!

Please sign up in purple so we can see it.

Things you'll need to play:
A Yahoo account
Preferably a Google account so I don't have to enter your draft picks for you into the spreadsheet.
A name for your team.

How it works:
We draft teams of baseball players here on the forums. The person that picks the players with the best stats wins. We'll probably have the same stats count as last year unless people want to do something different.

Funny pictures to go along with picks are appreciated.


Draft order:
PizzleStixx
Y2Jake215
Lava
Yotes
dots
fortis
Cauld
Zombie Hero
Schide
zeeny
Plushy
Junior Yank
Scruple
Adrenaline

After you pick, send the next person in line a PM. Send me a PM so I can give you access to the spreadsheet so you can enter your picks there as well as the forum.

Here is a link to last year's draft in case you are interested in seeing how that played out.

    I was already in before this thread went up!

    I think the most I had last year was the actual draft. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not...probably not because it means I didn't do very good in the standings.

    I've never played fantasy baseball before, if there's a spot open I'd love to join. Nick Punto is really great, right???

    What managers from last year haven't come back yet, should we send them a pm?

    I'm in. Already signed up.

    But this year, someone else can draft a top-tier pitcher only to have him go down for the season the next day.

  • LavaKnightLavaKnight Registered User regular
    There have been three managers that have yet to renew their teams, two have had PMs sent to them, and one has been banned from PA, apparently. As soon as we know for sure that the other managers aren't renewing, we'll start adding new managers!

    As I mentioned before, we can probably increase the number of teams in the league by two to 16, making it a decently deep league, if there is enough interest, but I have a feeling (based on PA activity) that a few of the non-reporting managers wont renew.

  • SchideSchide You have dreams Everybody watching at home has dreamsRegistered User regular
    Can we maybe not do that? 14 is big enough as it is, 16 is just too many.

    It's just a thought, right now. Let's see how many new managers like Yotes express interest and then we'll go from there.

    Also, I think this is the highest I have drafted in a while, maybe ever.

    I'll make a pick before the forums go down for maintenance.

    I've never had the #1 pick before, I'm scared.

    Really?

    I think we had a trade of picks last year, but in the interest of keeping things sane, let's not for right now. Especially for the first round.

    Haha I was kidding.

    Ugh

    Considering I have the number 1 overall pick, I have a lot of things to consider. I have a certain standard that I have to set. With that being said:

    WITH THE #1 OVERALL PICK IN THE 2012 (what the fuck is this league called again ... ) D&D DRAFT, THE FRUIT FUCKER ALL-STARS SELECT:

    miguel_cabrera-728634.jpg

    Wait, Miguel Cabrera doesn't play for the Marlins anymore? Ok ...

    Wait, he doesn't look like that anymore? What does that even mea- ...

    Oh man, I hope Miggy is ready to play this year, because if not, my team will look like this:

  • LavaKnightLavaKnight Registered User regular
    Ha ha ha, awesome images. I like seeing him fat. Will be great for you when (if?) he gets 3B eligibility!

  • PizzleStixxPizzleStixx Registered User regular
    I'm pretty sure he will start the season at 3rd, so I think after 5 games he gets it? Regardless, with Fielder there I think that only helps him.

    I guess I should say, I will pick this morning after y2jake makes his pick.

    I had a dream that somebody picked Melky Cabrera with their first pick. I guess that's what I get for thinking about fantasy before falling asleep!

    Tough pick.

    I want no risk with my first rounder so I go The Consistent Mr. Poopholes in his brand new uniform, and hope this isn't the year the bottom falls out.

    Yeah, sorry. I was deciding, then the forums went down, so I went to sleep. Tossed and turned over this decision. Went with Albert over some riskier but higher upside picks because last year I struggled all year with Longoria and Stanton as 1st and 2nd rounders not giving me 1st and 2nd round results.

    God, I hate picking early, I honestly WOULD have traded down if I could haha

    Ha ha! No worries man, glad you're around! I had trouble choosing between Bautista and Votto!

    Edit: Invited! If anyone cares to have access to the spreadsheet, feel free to shoot me your email address and I can add you. Don't feel obligated to do it yourself, though, any of us should be on top of it. My desire for tidiness ensures that I usually prioritize it, even at work.
