Testing New Concept: Draft-Only league using only WAR
« on: March 15, 2017, 10:52:39 PM »
Let me know if you're interested.  Basically, we'll slow draft a 12-man league. 

Each team owner is allotted a budget of $112,895,700 for players (Equal to the Padres opening day budget in 2016).  Contract information is automatically populated based on data at this site: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/compensation/cots/.  The spreadsheet I've made auto-populates COTS data.  It also auto populates daily WAR (Wins Above Replacement) from baseball-reference and then autopopulates a 'LeaderBoard'.  Fancy stuff, huh? 

For display purposes, I filled 12 fake teams and put scoreboard and team rosters displayed here:

The draft board will look like this:

After picks are drafted, the spreadsheet tweets out the pick from a twitter account I just set up @fbbWAR.

Initial go at a Constitution is attached. We've got a lot of interest but need another 3-4 managers.  If it seems like a good idea, I'll instantiate the software I've developed to make other copycat leagues.

Get in on the ground floor!

I believe we're sitting at 7-8 managers.  We're shooting for 12. PM your email address and team name, I'll give you write privileges to the spread sheet.  Also, FB group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1467130333329541/

Indians!  Good to see some familiar faces!  I definitely had some of the Armchair brethren in mind when I started coding!  Let me know if you're interested!

Thanks for the interest Barry but we just started drafting!  You can follow along with us, we're probably scaling up next year.
