Oh sure.   >:(

I do well in football then basketball and suddenly I'm drafting last ::)

 :P

You get 2 of the top 9 players, look at it that way.  After having Scott on my ass all of last year, I'm not too thrilled about him having the 1st pick overall.  But random is random.

Ok. I may be just a tad late, so I'll send my possible pick(s) to someone, cause I've got to apply for a few jobs. :P

Ok...I have not done this for awhile.  Where or how do you pre-rank the players.  It says "if you are not present for the entire draft, go to your TEAM PAGE and pre-rank players."  How the hell do you do this?  LOL!  It's driving me a bit mad.  I'm on the darn team page and don't see anything that says "Pre-Rank" or anything like it.  I'm sure it's something really simple but I have not located it...yet.

You don't need to worry about that, we're going to draft right here in this thread over the course of the next several days or weeks - just check in often enough that you can post your picks here, or if you know you'll be gone for a long time, send a few ranked choices to someone you trust.

Okay guys, we can start.  It's just that Chuckles couldn't post his first pick until Sunday at noon, but he goes fifth.  Darth Broem, we conduct the draft post by post in this thread, it goes real slow, but we will complete on average 1 round per day, some days more, some days less.  It's fun.

Scott, you're up.

I dunno, we can expect on average to complete 1 round per day.  I check if it's my pick at 7 AM before I head to work, then all night 5 PM and after.  We'll get it done, just like football and basketball.  After the first 7 rounds or so, I'll start leaving my picks with someone to move things along faster.

1. Scott
2. HoloElvis
3. Famine
4. Dressel
5. Chuckles
6. Darth Broem
7. Kneel Before Zod
8. Morgbug
---------------------------------- ROUND 2
9. Morgbug
10. Kneel Before Zod
11. Darth Broem
12. Chuckles
13. Dressel
14. Famine
15. HoloElvis
16. Scott
---------------------------------- ROUND 3
17. Scott
18. HoloElvis
19. Famine
20. Dressel
21. Chuckles
22. Darth Broem
23. Kneel Before Zod

No worries, just trying to plan my day.  Will be heading out around noon central to go skating with the family and then back after looking at open houses for the afternoon.  Will be back around 4 central. 

It's just noon Eastern (10 central) works better for me.

Here's the scoring system and roster positions for the league as it stands right now.  (This can be changed up to March 1st when the draft commences)

Single = 1 point
Double = 2 points
Triple = 3 points
Homer = 4 points
RBI = 1 point
Stolen Base = 1 point

Win = 7 points
Loss = -5 points
Walk = -1 point
Earned Run = -1 point
K = 1 point
Shutout (9 innings, zero ER) = 5 points

1B
2B
3B
SS
C
Utility (any hitter)
OF
OF
OF

SP
SP
SP
SP
SP
RP
RP

5 bench spots any position.

The owner who accumulates the most points at the end of the season wins.

Hopefully we can start the draft on March 1st, posting pick by pick in this thread.  The draft order will be chosen by writing each owner's name on a piece of paper and drawn from a hat, and the draft order will be posted here Sunday February 27th, 2 days before the draft commences.

Is this the final scoring system?

Also, does scoring work Rotisserie style like in the Fantasy Basketball league?

Yeah Zod, that's the final scoring system.  The standings are based on 1 single total point total, that is, adding up all the points that your hitters and pitchers earned.  Last year the winning team had roughly 6,000 points.

Okay, so like when we did Fantasty Football but without the head-to-head matches...  The Tie breaker was total points scored.
