Fantasy Baseball league settings discussion...
    #6593069 - 02/21/07 10:45 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

If there is anything you guys don't like about the setup of the Shroomery baseball league please air it out here...here are some points I wanted to bring up

1) Live Draft: I would love to do a live draft and want to hear if you guys would be down for that as well. Be warned - it can take as long as 2 hrs, though probably not with 12 teams..last year's was a mess with 20 players, 8 of whom didn't show up to the draft. But if 90 percent of the players show up to the draft it will go much more quickly....

I would want to schedule a live draft for an afternoon sometime, when I am at work with access to a computer with internet access. This includes Saturdays when I work 12-7 EST.

2) Trade Veto: I'm definitely in agreement with zappa's comment on the league board that commissioner should get final say and that 2/3 voting against would be a league veto...I'll see if I can set it up with both.

Minnimum Innings Pitched: I'm just a little lost on this setting, never know where to throw it, if zappa or someone else with many years of FB experience could suggest something that'd be swell.



STAT categories are at: R, HR, RBI, SB, E, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

open to debate for any others.

A live draft would indeed be cool but it is utterly impractical. You need to do it when you're at work, I can't do it when I'm at work and I'm sure there are quite a few slacker bitches who never leave the bed and don't give a shit when it gets done. Forget it, auto draft is the only choice, unfortunately.

I don't see any minimum innings pitched option available and I would choose none anyway. You want to tank wins and strikeouts, go ahead. .

So you work Saturdays within the hours of 12-7 EST or have other things going on in that time that would prevent you from doing a live draft zappa?

I have obligations, yes, not all of which are work. I understand the ideal, which is actually a salary cap auction, then a live draft. But it's like herding cats and nailing down jello. OMR said they got about a 60% turnout for the draft last year. Now I suspect we have more dedicated players this time but it isn't just dedication that gets 10 or 12 people together at the same time. I do not disagree that it is unfortunate, but much in life is unfortunate. Make the fairest and best decision and move on.

This is true, however the fairest and best decision would be based on what the majority wants. 3 out of the 4 people in this thread thus far want a live draft. :shrug:

Okay.

So you want an autodraft...

Fine. How does it affect you if we have a live draft and you arent present?

Its not like you arent getting the same players you would anyhow.

If a few people cant make it, fine. Let the computer pick your players, and I'll pick mine.

The four lifeless wankers who have currently represented in this thread don't even constitute a quorum. If live we go, then so be it. I'll still win even if I have to set it at auto. My robot is smarter than you, anyway.
