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/

sounds awsome

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.

  • Jonathan: I think Rask will be ok. His point total should be on the rise with the new combinations. They moved Teuvo up to play with Staal and its not Rask Skinner and Elias together. Skinner is the best scorer they got by a mile.

  • blkhwkfn: Not with a first, they have so many needs. How many times can a franchise wiff on a QB?
    Yesterday at 12:03:24 AM
  • blkhwkfn: Intresting that you like Rosen for Cleveland.......as do many Mock drafts. If I was the GM for the Browns and picking a QB it would be Josh Allen
    Yesterday at 12:20:49 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Josh Allen can't read defense, throws too many picks, and plays 2nd rate competition
    Yesterday at 12:59:49 AM
  • chrisetc21: And he has two first names
    Yesterday at 01:15:28 AM
  • Daddy: Yes I think Rosen is legit. Not sure on Darnold and/or Allen but who really knows.
    Yesterday at 02:05:30 AM
  • Daddy: I think you whiff until you get it right. You can't keep passing on guys. The Browns won't be bad forever. No team is.
    Yesterday at 02:06:32 AM
  • Daddy: We the public always lump seasons together and draw an overall picture of team's to suit the workings of the mind.
    Yesterday at 02:07:49 AM
  • Daddy: The truth is every NFL season is an all new one that can go any way, Cleveland can be a playoff team next year if they draft right and fix a few things.

  • blkhwkfn: I'd take that bet

    Yesterday at 02:39:44 AM
  • Daddy: Not great but neither was Jerry Rice's comp and a bunch of others.
    Yesterday at 03:51:03 AM
  • Daddy: It comes down to the player, and no way I bet on Cleveland but the NFL is the league where it "could" happen in one season.
    Yesterday at 03:52:07 AM
  • Daddy: The Browns won't always be terrible. They get a QB and it's a start. I like Rosen but there is no sure bets.
    Yesterday at 03:53:31 AM
  • Daddy: You also need a HC, O Line, and a good team built around a young QB. Without those things they are all busts.
    Yesterday at 03:54:50 AM
  • Daddy: How is Dak looking these days? How about Luck, RG3, Winston, Tannehill, the list of guys coming up lacking is very long.
    Yesterday at 04:02:19 AM
