2051 Draft Discussion
« on: February 01, 2013, 11:31:18 AM »
Double check your picks here - http://www.npblbaseball.com/npbl/cgi-bin/statslab/ootpsqlou/draftWarroom.php

I think I've got it all right.  Kentucky gets first overall pick due to their PYT record being 2 games worse than Utah's.

Are the draft picks going to be timed up until the point we live draft?  I'm getting a message that the "Next pick due in: 46 minutes, 44 seconds"

Whoops, absolutely not!

I did not realize the timer was enabled still... we were only using that last draft because we couldn't squeeze in a live draft.

I've rolled back to the beginning; apologies to those who picked.

Illinois is looking to trade up in the draft to get a specific guy.

Currently I have the 9th and 23rd overall pick. If my guy is still on the board, I'll trade you both of those picks for your single pick (2nd-8th overall).... PM me if you're interested. I'll also PM each of those 7 GM's that this would apply to.

just want to make sure I know what's going on.
Are we waiting for Utah to make a pick?
when I look at the draft board I only see Henson picked by Kentucky.

 ???

Thanks.
Also, I'm not quite sure how the actual drafting is done.
Using the war room utility?
looking at it, I don't see any button that says "draft this player", so I'm not sure this is used.
thanks

That appears once it's your turn. Until then you can only add players to your queue.

anybody have any thoughts as to how many players you would need to have on your autodraft list in order to make it through the draft?
I suppose technically 90 would do it, but perhaps 60 or 70 would get a guy through? Anyone can speak from experience?

I'd build enough of a list to get yourself past your third-round pick at most. After that, the computer does an OK job.

I'd guess about 75 players would be enough to get through 4 rounds.  5th round talent it pretty low, so a cpu pick at that point won't make or break you.

It's times like these that I'm glad we do a live draft (even if I can't be there... which I'm unsure about right now).  At least we get it over and done with.
