02-17-2005, 12:51 PM
I hope that we would try to do a live draft KH?

02-17-2005, 12:59 PM
No, its hard to get everyone together online at once due to busy schedules

02-17-2005, 10:26 PM
The Xir just signed up so we are at 10 if everyone joins.

I signed up. When will the draft happen?

02-18-2005, 09:43 AM
The Draft will take place once everyone is signed up and has their rankings set. First game is not until April 3rd, so most likely beginning to middle of March so we can make trades and adjust squads.

KH, why not do a 'Slow Live Draft' with a 12hr time limit inbetween picks! That way everyone can get who they actually want of who's available, and in case someone's pick is up and they can't get to their computer they have 12 hrs to do so! I mean the season isn't until Apiral 1rst, so we got alot of time to do it, although it shouldn't take more than 3days! Unless we can get everyone online at the same time and it should only take a day! But as I said this way we insure who we want, and not rely on the computer to do it for us! I know I hate managing players I never would have drafted! Plus I hate ranking the draft, and like I said hoping the computer gets it right! Just my 2cents! :)

Also your not doing head 2 head? I've never done Rotisserie, is that just who ever scores the most points wins? 'Cause that will totally change my draft stratagey!!! :evil:

02-18-2005, 05:13 PM
Rankings are set and ready to go. Hope I get what I want, like last year.

02-18-2005, 05:34 PM

Changed to head to head. Thanks for the tip Xir...

It's actually more fun that way I think, when you do Head to Head matchups! More competition and "drama"! :eek:

Any chance for the Slow Live Draft now? :nerv: It's not as bad as it might sound! Really! :nerv: :classic:

02-18-2005, 11:48 PM
Lets see what everyone thinks Auto pickis quick and painless, then lots of trades

02-20-2005, 01:13 AM
Cool, we got ten, I think I am going to shut it down as far as everything goes. Gonna be an interesting season with all these teams. Thanks to SMo and JJ for adding themselves to the league

02-20-2005, 01:37 AM
yep, Echo base.. thatd be me. sorry to take so long. been working.. finally got to work.. time to relax.. um.. yeah.

ya know.. Im not too sure for what to expect this year..I had huge hopes for the Cardinals last year.. then they just fall apart in the series.. now, theyve traded away so many.. no Renteria.. decimated our pitching staff.. and OH MAN... brought back Ankiel AGAIN!!... Im nervous.. . :ermm:

02-21-2005, 10:00 AM
Xir,this is the issue.DOing a live draft whether slow or fast to get the players you want doesnt matter. ALl the "superstars" are gone with in the first three rounds. You will only end up with onew or two really outstanding players and about 8-10 big names. The rest are made up of the rest of the league. Auto pick goes by ranking. Trust me, you will end up with the same people either way.

02-27-2005, 09:53 AM
Has everyone done their rankings?

James Boba Fettfield
02-27-2005, 11:06 AM
Yep, I'm done.

The 'Xir
02-27-2005, 12:43 PM
I disagree KH, but If we must. I've had mine done for awhile now! :cool:

So when will it start?!!! :)

02-27-2005, 02:06 PM
Remember that thing we all used to do as kids.. "call it" when you get somewhere fancy, you'd call the chair you wanted before anyone else. "I call that chair" .. remember? back then if you called something it was pretty much Law right.. ? I propose we bring it back for the 05 series.

I "call" Albert Pujols.. no body else can have him on their team now. cause I called it. So, after the draft,. if you get him,. he is to be traded to me immediatly.. :sur: For those of you who dont understand the whole "call It" phenom.. Its also known in some parts of the country as "dibs"

Im ready.. Im ready.. Im ready..

02-27-2005, 09:26 PM

The 'Xir
03-01-2005, 06:13 AM
Sweeeeet plannin' there KH! :beard: Anyway we can know our draft rank/position before it starts though!? And will this draft snake? ie) 1rst rnd: 1-10, then 2nd rnd: 10-1, 3rd: 1-10, etc... Just wondering, 'cause it will help plan our statedgy when ranking our players! :classic: ThanX!

03-01-2005, 09:32 AM
The draft goes in order of your player rankings. If you have for example:


ranked in that order and your draft postion is 4th.

Say A-Rod,and Bonds are taken....you would get Puljos because he is the first listed in your draft that is undrafted as of that point.....

The 'Xir
03-01-2005, 12:26 PM
:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

and your draft postion is 4th.

This is what I want to Know! Am I the #1 pick, am I 10th, am I 6th? That's what I'm asking? Can you set it? Or, does the computer do it automatically, and if so is there time to find out before the auto-draft starts, or does the computer shuffle us around as to what draft position we get and then start the auto-picking immediately after?

say my team gets the 10th pick, I'm also asking about a snaking draft, because then I would know I have 2 picks in a row, with the 10th and 11th picks! But, If it just starts at the begining again(#1 after #10 picks) well then I might alter my player rankings based on this!
I realize how the drafting itself works, I'm just asking to know what position my team is going to get in the draft before it starts!
Sorry if my question wasn't clear! But thank you for your time, I'm sure you got better things to do then answer my goofy questions about a fantasy league! Sorry! :)

03-01-2005, 08:37 PM
I dont set an order for draft, the computer does. Dont know how, but it just does.

03-10-2005, 11:25 AM
The draft is set, should have your teams by tomorrow or Saturday. Good Luck.

03-11-2005, 01:57 PM
I only got my top 65 players ranked before the draft happened, but nevertheless, I am thrilled with my team.

03-11-2005, 08:14 PM
I got A-Rod...I am not complaining!!
Its actually the first time I have ever gotten my #1 player on my list...
Anyway, good luck everyone. This should be fun.

03-11-2005, 11:06 PM
Me likey my team as well.

04-01-2005, 03:19 PM
