  • Which is even more reason you let less successful teams pick first so they don’t fall further behind.
  • Yesterday at 08:22:05 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • yeah, we don't want to bury that team, but when the garbage that went down did.... Houston had probably 30 top 100, 100 top 10 (from each system), and a MLB team with marquee players at like 20 spots and the other 20 starting caliber players

  • The only reason I said the Astros would pick last is because our order was based on the previous years W-L records and I believe the Astros finished 1st.  You could do a random order, but if you’re looking for parity, seems like the less fortunate should pick first.  Just an observation.

  • In our situation, there were no teams in the Astros position.  The league was contracting.  But since the Astros are only keeping a limited amt of players, seems only fair to let them be part of the process.  No one should want to destroy them.
  • Yesterday at 08:15:39 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • I actually don't think it's a bad idea.  It allows you to protect a guy Brent.
  • Yesterday at 08:15:02 PM
  • Brent:
  • Although picking last would be another penalty assessed to a team that cheated, but doesn't exist anymore.
  • Yesterday at 08:14:52 PM
  • Brent:
  • Of course, why not?
  • Yesterday at 08:13:24 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • hmm... so you would actually let the team losing players pick?
  • Yesterday at 08:12:29 PM
  • Flash:
  • It worked quite well.  Everyone got a player they could afford and the talent was evenly distributed.
  • Yesterday at 08:12:25 PM
  • Flash:
  • With a select number staying on the Astros roster, the Astros would pick last in each round.
  • Yesterday at 08:11:15 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • When you guys did that Flash, did it work out well for you guys?
  • Yesterday at 08:10:22 PM
  • Flash:
  • GMs could pick an MLB player and would inherit their contract.  Or an MiLB player.  The undrafted became free agents.
  • Yesterday at 08:09:52 PM
  • Flash:
  • FWIW:  2 years ago we did a 2 Round Contraction Draft in WCB2.  Used a Draft Order based on Rookie Draft order.

  • I will get to this stuff but I am fixing the Amateur Draft first.  Should be done today.
  • Yesterday at 02:57:50 PM
  • Brent:
  • No, I'm replying to your PM now.
  • Yesterday at 02:50:28 PM
  • ldsjayhawk:
  • so we are talking about restoring the Houston roster and allowing all teams to draft two players each?
  • Yesterday at 02:37:45 PM
  • Brent:
  • random generator
  • Yesterday at 02:26:43 PM
  • Yeagg:
  • Either a randomized generator or league standings
  • Yesterday at 02:04:56 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • I will try to get it set up tonight if possible.  How should we assign the picks?
  • Yesterday at 01:51:14 PM
  • Yeagg:
  • It should really be done before this weekend is over though, since FA is about to get a lot crazier after Catchers are signed
  • Yesterday at 01:20:19 PM
  • Yeagg:
  • Great idea Brent!!
  • Yesterday at 01:17:50 PM
  • indiansnation:
  • See what he thinks.
  • Yesterday at 12:47:55 PM
  • indiansnation:
  • Can someone send Ldsjay hawks a pm
  • Yesterday at 12:47:42 PM
  • indiansnation:
  • I'm getting ready for work.
  • Yesterday at 12:47:18 PM
  • RyanJames5:
  • Good call.  2 rounds is probably more accurate.
  • Yesterday at 12:45:19 PM
  • Brent:
  • Yeah, anyone who was on the original roster outside of the few players kept.
  • Yesterday at 12:43:39 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • Sounds legit.  Brian, get with Cris and see if that is what the best option is.  In that scenarios, guys like Elias Diaz should go back into the draft.
  • Yesterday at 12:38:21 PM
  • Brent:
  • It wouldn't be too difficult.  Stip out those players and list them out w/contracts for the MLB players.  Run a random generated draft order.  Post both of those lists, draft order and available players.  Advertise it, and then hold the draft.  Whoever doesn't get drafted in 2 rounds (60 players) goes into the FA pool.
  • Yesterday at 12:29:55 PM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • How are we going to do the drafting of it?  Are all managers aware?
  • Yesterday at 12:26:03 PM
  • Daddy:
  • :STL-NFL: v. :NO: its coming
  • Yesterday at 12:21:15 PM
  • Brent:
  • Agreed.  Just do a random draft order for all teams and hold a 2 round draft for the MLB and MiLB talent that would be released into the talent pool.
  • Yesterday at 11:59:35 AM
  • RyanJames5:
  • Yep, its too much talent to not try to find a way to evenly distribute.
  • Yesterday at 11:50:53 AM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • I agree Ryan.  The team with $100M will literally sign everyone.
  • Yesterday at 11:09:55 AM
  • indiansnation:
  • Just got to wait a little but to update spreedsheets

  • Yesterday at 10:42:51 AM
  • RyanJames5:
  • I do agree, certainly no handbook on how to handle a situation like that, I was just trying to think of a way to attempt to evenly distribute talent, rather than just let the team with 80 or 90M in cap space sign everyone
  • Yesterday at 10:40:25 AM
  • RyanJames5:
  • It could always be in reverse order of finsh last year.
  • Yesterday at 10:39:34 AM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • I'm not sure there is a good option for this though.  We'll sift through it.
  • Yesterday at 10:33:43 AM
  • kidd5jersey:
  • That is an interesting idea Ryan.  There is a website I believe that we can have it generate picks.
  • Yesterday at 10:33:06 AM
  • RyanJames5:
  • Just thinking it's such a huge influx of talent that, just by luck, whoever has the most cap space to accumulate a ton of.
  • Yesterday at 10:04:12 AM
  • RyanJames5:
  • I'm kind of late with the idea, but rather than releasing everyone on Houston that will not be kept on the roster to Free Agency, what if we held a 1 round draft for all of those players?

  • Flash: Regardless, your league, so you need to decide what’s in the best interest of the league.  Brent, like many members, is a veteran fantasy player and it seems like he has proposed something that is in the best interest of all involved.  I wish you well.
    Yesterday at 08:24:59 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Yes, this is a tricky one.  That's why it's so important to be near consensus and incorporate everyone's ideas.  The league in year's past was determined what was best for one owner.
    Yesterday at 08:27:26 PM
  • Brent: I'm only keeping 12 players out of 250.
    Yesterday at 08:33:41 PM
  • kidd5jersey: With this format, you get to keep everyone left over so you at least have a minors to work with
    Yesterday at 08:34:46 PM
  • kidd5jersey: You can always 'buy out' Posey since you're a new owner to the team.
    Yesterday at 08:35:36 PM
  • Brent: That's the point, I don't want them.  I'll build the team from the ground up with ththe exception of the 12.
    Yesterday at 08:44:55 PM
  • Flash: Astros wouldn’t get to keep everyone leftover, that would defeat the purpose.  All the undrafted players would go into free agency.
    Yesterday at 08:48:20 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Ok, I will drop all the minors players
    Yesterday at 08:49:00 PM
  • kidd5jersey: I'm trying to fix the screwed up Amateur draft as we speak
    Yesterday at 08:49:45 PM
  • kidd5jersey: The Houston Talent draft should not take too much time
    Yesterday at 08:50:25 PM
  • Brent: It's not all minors.  I'm keeping a 6.  6 MLB and 6 Minors, that's my 12.
    Yesterday at 09:01:50 PM
  • Flash: FYI:  In the WCB2 draft, I listed all the available MLB players with their contracts and all the MiLB players with their (P-n/a)s in a separate thread and crossed them out as they were picked.  Made it a lot easier for everyone--they could review who's available and what the cost of each player was.  Just an idea....
    Yesterday at 09:46:59 PM
  • Brent: That's how I would do it.
    Yesterday at 09:57:26 PM
  • kidd5jersey: MEMBERS OF ARMCHAIR:  Please check your PM with initial update for the Houston Competitive Draft.
    Yesterday at 10:19:22 PM
  • Vik: Late to the party but I've kept up with what's been going on overall seems like fair decision, good work guys! My quick 2 cents though- wouldnt' it make sense to allow Brent to keep more minors? Also we should allow catchers to finish rest of weekend but pause rest of FA until after draft
    Yesterday at 11:59:51 PM
  • Brent: I don't want to keep more minors.  I'd prefer they be offered up to everyone since they had been hoarded.

  • kidd5jersey: I have literally just finished adding guys back to Houston.  Jesus..... believe me.... there is plenty of talent to go around
    Today at 12:02:33 AM
  • kidd5jersey: FanTrax is not correct for HOU but it makes no point to add back to HOU just to move them
    Today at 12:03:15 AM
  • kidd5jersey: I'm still scrolling through every conversation I had going back to December on Houston.  Making sure I didn't miss anything.  I also dug deep in the archives to make sure contracts are correct
    Today at 12:04:37 AM
  • kidd5jersey: You guys owe "Ryan's Toy Review" on YouTube a thumbs up.  My 3yr old boy K2 has been watching it all night lol
    Today at 12:05:28 AM
  • Brent: I have the spreadsheet from 19 Dec 18.  It has everyone that was on Houston's roster.
    Today at 12:06:23 AM
  • kidd5jersey: You want to double check the roster itself?  I used the exact contracts Chris doled out
    Today at 12:07:32 AM
  • Vik: I figured minors 6 of your choosing and X more but some sort of restriction on these not exactly sure on how. Just seems with such deep minor system keeping some lower end specs may be benefical
    Today at 12:07:34 AM
  • Brent: I'm not sure where you updated the roster/contracts, but I can send you the spreadsheet from 19Dec.  It has everyone on it.
    Today at 12:09:56 AM
