I wonder how all of these SPEEDY SB guys would do if, for example, there were multiple Catchers selected with +A arms?

I asked this question earlier, but got no answer...  I have 7 Walter Johnsons on my team with 2585 IP, I dont need any more pitchers?  Do I fill the rest of my roster with any 200k players, or are there specific players you want us to use?  I could take 4 or 5 more WJ, but I really dont think I need 5000 IP?
The way it had worked before, and it looks like it will this time, you either pick more walter johnson's or the commish finds the worst 200k players and assigns them as fill-ins.  They are bad players and are worse than un-useable.  

I believe Johnny Bench and Craig Biggio were the only two catchers that had been used before.  One of them did not fair well.  You can guess which one.

OK, Thanks bottomlee, I guess I will just have to go with 5000IP?

How did the other Catchers team do?

Im not really worrying about the SB guys, they have to get by my Walter Johnson's & reach base first!  I sure Pete, Cy, Addie, Ed, Pedro, Christy & Gregs teams feel the same way!

I have noticed that we DO have to take in most cases 7-8 200K players, because if we take, Lou Gehrig as our Batter, he is NOT listed at any position EXCEPT 1B - so we have to fill C,2B,SS,3B & all 3 OF positions, for sim to allow a team to pass the Draft Center!  So we need a "Standard" listing for fill in players that we can select, at least 1 at each fielding position, Please list them, thanks!

Not at all go_pre. You can force the SIM to draft any player at any position. Every player for every year has a unique player ID. First, copy the ID for the Gehrig you want at a position, like catcher. Then, go ahead and draft any catcher you want, and paste Gehrig's ID into the one shown in the URL box. Press Enter and voila.

This is correct.   It can be a little different, depending on the browser you're using.   There's a few threads on the Sim League forum that go into more detail.  Search them out if you need to.

True. Another way is to draft the player (Gehrig) you want in the 1b slot. Copy the entire URL. Delete Gehrig. Paste the URL, replacing in the position slot in the URL "2" for "1" (1 being catcher).

Babe Adams for me....thx.

Sorry guys, i've been busy today, so I haven't had much time to look at this. If anyone needs better instructions on how to get all the out of position players into position, I can copy and paste them when I get home tonight. Everyone picked should have more than enough years, so there shouldn't be an 200k players.

Also remember, you need well over 2000 innings pitched, because things will get extremely crazy with all the players out of position and speedy hitters.

How do we know when to make our 2nd pick?
11/9/2012 4:25 PM
JMC44, you make your selection right after thaneoffife makes his. We really have two separate draft threads now - one for pitchers, and one for hitters.
