The Official 2078 Thread
« on: December 12, 2018, 04:15:45 AM »
Hey guys, the first new file for 2078 went up yesterday after I left my office.  The reports are now up and I'm working on statslab/draft setup.  I'll keep you posted and figure out a draft date soon.

With the first pick of the 2078 draft, the Virginia Grays select Steve Hull. Hes listed as a center fielder, but we believe he has the potential to play any position in the field.

Despite announcing his retirement partway through last season, it seems age-defying SP Juan Fernandez has had a change of heart. He'll be reporting to Spring Training this week with the club, just like he has for every season for the previous 28 years.

Thankfully for us in Virginia, Bubba Godwin did not have any similar change of heart. We let him play out his last season of .223/.267/.386 ball only because he promised he wouldn't show up again this year.

NC has made Irving TX native Jason MacCrindle the #4 pick in this year's draft. The HS standout has plus-plus contact and power potential and will be making his professional debut in Benton County.

Catcher isn't in the field.

Hey guys, just a brief update here...

I've got something going on every night this week except Friday, which is not really a good night for drafting, so we're going to just keep drafting on the boards for the time being.

With Christmas early next week and a lot of people travelling (including me), we may not be able to get together for the live portion of the draft until the new year. 

So, sit tight!

I'm just posting an update to say there is no update.  :)

Except that December 27th might be the earliest we can get together to wrap up the draft...

Personally, no rush - it's the Holidays and the draft seems to be moving pretty decent in StatsLab

I will be in Nashville for the Music City bowl from the 26-29, so I will prepare a list in case you guys draft those days.

While you wait for the draft to proceed, check out the trade forum; I have cheap pitchers available.

1. I can't believe I missed taking my second round pick. JFC. Would have taken MacCrindle. Crap.
2. I could have sworn Virginia took Dorian Gibbons in the third round. Because I was planning on taking Scott, and then, when my pick came up, I thought Scott was still available.. but I decided to take Rodriquez instead. and now I see Gibbons went to Illinois in round three, so ... so what the heck was I thinking? Why did I think Virginia had taken him. Weird.
3. Can you say "Wait till next year" when talking about the draft?
4. Crap. (Pardon my french.)
