We are only two owners short of beginning, as we are up to 14 now. 

I have begun posting the draft order first of owners for each round, and after that will do the same for the regions in order in each round. 

If anyone knows a way to cut and paste into two separate columns in either Word or on the Forum text box itself, I would be grateful if you could let me know how. I have looked all over the internet but it does not seem possible. So later on I will have to type in or individually cut and paste each region next to the name of the owner. 

That will make it easier to see who is drafting from where each round at a glance, but technically you will all have all the information you need today to begin your more informed research since in each round the number the owner has before their name is linked to the number each region has for that round, so owner listed as no.7 in Round 5 will draft from the region that randomly got assigned number 7 in that round. But I will try to present a two-column alignment for our easy viewing in a day or two. It is time-consuming to do one at a time though, hence the usefulness of a cut and paste into columns function. 

DRAFT RULES 


As to how we are drafting: In practice times during days don't matter, since only one owner can draft from each region in each round. So we are going by days: THIS MEANS THAT EACH DAY AT SOME POINT YOU POST THE NAME OF THE PLAYER (PLEASE LIST THE REGION TO HELP MY BOOK-KEEPING AS WELL) THAT YOU ARE DRAFTING THAT ROUND THAT DAY. 

A MISSED PICK WILL MEAN THAT THE OWNER IN QUESTION DID NOT MAKE A PICK AT ANY TIME THAT DAY AND WE HAVE NOW MOVED TO THE NEXT DAY (ALL TIMES WILL BE EST IN THE US, SO A "DAY" WILL MEAN THAT IF WE DRAFTED ROUND 4 ON A MONDAY AND IT IS NOW 10 AM ON TUESDAY (NO EARLIER) YOU MISSED A PICK. 

IN THE FIRST 3 ROUNDS I WILL NOT ALLOW US TO MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ROUND UNTIL ALL OWNERS HAVE MADE A SELECTION, MEANING IF THERE ARE ANY MISSED PICKS FROM THE FIRST ROUND WE WON'T START ROUND 2 THE NEXT DAY UNTIL THAT OWNER HAS PICKED. SAME FOR ROUNDS 2 AND 3. 

AFTER ROUND 3 IF YOU MISS A PICK THEN AFTER 10 AM THE FOLLOWING DAY THE OWNER THAT HAS THE NEXT ROUND'S PICK IN THAT REGION MAY MAKE THEIR PICK AND WHEN YOU DO MAKE UP YOUR PICK THE PLAYER THEY CHOSE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO YOU ANYMORE. 

Anyway, check out the Geography League Theme League Forum to see where you are placed in the order (which as you see from the explanation above has nothing to do with what time you pick or in what order chronologically but means how you are placed to align with an assigned region to pick from for that round). 

See you all there, and hopefully we will get those two last owners in soon and can start ! (in the draft order I have called these last two Owner Y and Owner Z respectively).

About drafting ball parks and team names: 

TEAM NAMES: 

Teams must have the name of a city, town, state, region or country plus the team name. I don't care if they are the Tokyo Knickerbockers, the East Anglia Mudsharks, the Caspian Sea Pirates, so long as the formula is place plus team name. 

DRAFTING PARKS: 

AT ANY POINT IN THE DRAFT YOU MAY PICK A BALL PARK INSTEAD OF A PLAYER IN THE ROUND YOU CHOOSE. YOU CANNOT PICK BOTH A PARK AND A PLAYER IN THE SAME ROUND. 

BALLPARKS ARE UNIQUE - THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE VERSION OF EACH PARK IN THE LEAGUE. BUT ALL BALL PARKS ARE AVAILABLE (INCLUDING ALL THOSE NOT AVAILABLE IN OPEN LEAGUES). 

LEAGUE ASSIGNMENT (AL OR NL, EAST OR WEST DIVISION) WILL BE RANDOM FOR THE FIRST SEASON AND THEN WE CAN DISCUSS ALTERNATIVES AFTERWARDS. 


FINALLY, REMEMBER WE ARE DRAFTING UP TO A MAXIMUM OF 30 PLAYERS FOR EACH ROSTER, SO THERE ARE 31 ROUNDS IN THIS FOUNDING DRAFT (WITH ONE ROUND FOR EACH OWNER'S BALLPARK INCLUDED). 

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE. 

NOW STAY TUNED - BELOW WILL FOLLOW THE REALLY BIG INFO: WHAT REGION EACH OWNER WILL DRAFT FROM IN EACH ROUND. UNTIL I CAN PUT UP A VERSION WITH OUR USER NAMES NEXT TO THE REGIONS ASSIGNED US IN EACH ROUND YOU CAN KNOW BY JUST LOOKING AT YOUR DRAFT ORDER NUMBER IN EACH ROUND AND FINDING THE CORRESPONDING NUMBERED REGION FOR THAT SAME ROUND.

So there is our draft order for all 31 rounds - line up the owner number for each round with the geographical region number for the same round and you know who is drafting from where each round. I will try to create a visually easier version when I get a chance, but again, if there is a way to paste the regions list into a second column so they are next to and aligned with the owners, either in Word or on this text box formatting system, let me know as that will greatly reduce the work involved. 

But the info is there.

 All of these lists come from www.baseball-reference.com/bio

Click on the name of the state or country you want to research players from. On that state list you can order players by career  batting average, home runs, ERA, Wins, or most other widely used stats. The most advanced stats aren't there, but this ordering will give you a rough sense of the relative quality of a long list of players. 

Hall of Famers are also indicated by the designation HOF next to their names, which also helps for the early rounds especially. 

Please do not start making draft picks. We can't start until we get two more owners and then I will let everyone know when we will start by sitemail.

Oh, one last thing: there is a typo in the regions draft order list: "stagecoast" should have read "stagecoach" and refers to those states in the West that are under that heading. Sorry for any confusion, but they are the same region. I will try to fix it later, but am tired now so signing of for now.

Using Excel worked, though the side-by-side view is in that format here. But we can live with that. I will post the other rounds in this version tomorrow as I get a chance. But you can see already where you draft from by the numbers for each owner and region for each round as posted above.

Our draft will begin 10 am EST Wednesday July 9 (my birthday by the way) 

And the first three rounds we will hold off drafting the next round until all owners have made picks for the previous round. From round 4 on, any missed picks may be made up later from remaining players, but the next owner may pick from the region missed in the previous round at any time from 10 am the next morning on. 

I will post the unavailable players already chosen from each region daily so you can see who is still available before each round. 

REMEMBER WHEN YOU DRAFT A PLAYER YOU DRAFT THEIR ROOKIE SEASON - MEANING THEIR FIRST WIS DATABASE SEASON. 

You may pick a ball park in any round INSTEAD OF  a player. So this is an option for those rounds where you need a SS or a catcher or whatever, but are not impressed with who is left in the region you drew for that round. 

See www.baseball-reference.com/bio to see who is from which state or country. When you click on that country's list of players (batters are listed first, then pitchers below on all those pages) you can click at the top of the column on the abbreviations (HR, BA, OPS, ERA, W, L etc.) to list players by that stat to get a rough idea of who the best remaining players are from that region and then can do further research on your options of course in the DC here at WIS. 

Good luck everyone !

   I finally got a chance to look at where I am drafting from in round 1 - NY. But what a choice to make: first I looked up the pitchers: Spahn, Radburn, Ford, Jim Palmer. How do you choose between Spahn and Ford? Then I saw "Koufax" - yikes - the best ever but not for the first 5-6 years. Who to go with. 

THEN I scrolled up to the batters and listed them by HR and saw not just Hank Greenberg and Carl Yastrzemski (low HR Numbers but high career BA is also Willie Keeler).

But I am leaning toward having first base covered for the next 2,130 games. But then, that would leave all those pitchers to the next owners drafting from NY. 

Torture ! why did I conceive of such a diabolic league ? Why didn't I listen to boogerlips ? Aw what the heck, what's done is done. Can't wait for the draft. It will be as much like "Risk", or  "Stratego" or "Chess" or "Go" as like baseball.

Please ignore my tortured self-anguish above and vote here on the questions of Keepers Lists limits. 

Draft board is on page 1 along with helpful hints about the drafting process using baseball-reference.

Thanks cardsfan. I am fine with it either way, but think it is worth considering to keep things interesting over time. Let's see how the vote goes and we can always reconsider it later on either way.

Vote so far: 

On Keeper limits: 

Yes 1   No 1

I'll also vote  for NO LIMIT and 25 if one is imposed

In a league structured like this, tanking will not pay dividends, but a reasonably sharp owner who is anticipating future need probably should be rewarded when we make the effort to research the more common kind of player who maybe just have one or two big seasons near the beginning of his career. And maybe 30  is an unnecessarily large sized roster. Should 480 players be drafted. I think that's a better question.

If we do end up with keepers limits benfc, to answer your good questions, then the players always advance in time as in any other progressive, so they go into the draft pool in that year of theirs (season 3 or 4 or whatever). But it looks like a moot point so far the way the vote it going. 

As for trades I don't see any reason why owners can't trade picks as they choose, or players for picks or whatever combination, including for future seasons. (Seasons, since I don't have another imaginative way of labeling them, will be Season 1, season 2, etc.). 

So yes to trades including picks. But let us know they are happening please by first posting the trades here before any traded pick is made and trades must be confirmed by both owners as usual to be valid.

As for Illinois sooners07, no Babe Ruth, true, but there is the guy that Bill James called "THE greatest leadoff hitter ever" and about whom he said "split him in two and you would have two hall of famers". Plus I see two great infielders of the 1940s, some good power hitters and very good if not great pitchers. So, there are some good picks there. 

The interesting thing will be how after the first round or two of obvious first round picks (not so obvious in some cases) we then have to find a starting lineup, a rotation, bench, bullpen, at times wondering about the trade off - that very good shortstop or that great OF but I have three starting OFs,...
