BOTTOM DUMP - V.2: Round 3 - League 5: DONE Topic

Okay, here's what we're doing...

FIRST AND FOREMOST:  If you have two teams in any of the six leagues in this round, YOU MUST have one in the A.L. and one in the N.L.  For those of you who will end up with three teams in one or more of these leagues, you have to make sure you still have an A.L./N.L. split - one in one and two in the other.
Each owner will select (1) whether they want an A.L. team or an N.L. team, and (2) which roster they would like to choose to help build their team with. In this set-up, each owner will get two "hitting" squads and two "pitching" squads with which to build your team's roster. For example, you may end up with the 1906 Cubs Hitting, as well as the 1971 Pirates Hitting. Then, you could end up with the 1923 Reds Pitching along with the 1969 Mets Pitching. When you're finished drafting, you'll have two teams that you can build your pitching staff with and you'll have two teams to build your position player roster with. YOU MUST HAVE SIX PLAYERS MINIMUM FROM EACH OF THESE FOUR SELECTIONS. The 25th player can come from any of the four selections.
REMEMBER THIS: You can't take a pitcher from one of your "hitting" selections and you can't take a hitter from one of your "pitching" selections. All pitchers must come from your two pitching selections and all hitters must come from your two "hitting" selections.
ALSO: No mixing and matching A.L. and N.L. Once you make your first selection, it will determine whether you're going to be all N.L. or all A.L.
ALSO (and here's where it can get tough): You must have four position players from each of your hitting squads achieve 550 PA's during the course of the 162-game regular season. That will make sure that no one just uses their second hitting choice as "filler." Also, that will allow you to platoon one player should you decide to go that route. ALSO (again): You must have two Pitchers from each of your two pitching squads achieve 180 IP's during the course of the 162-game regular season.
The draft order for each league will be set up as such: 1-24, 24-1, 24-1 and 1-24. There are 25 selections in each grouping so even the person who picks last in each draft will at least have a choice of two different selections.
Alignment will be in the order the teams are selected. The first four N.L. squads selected will make up the N.L. East, etc. etc.
Here are some other items of interest:
YES:  Clones. Even though they're allowed, I don't see where they're going to be in play very much.
YES:  Designated Hitter
NO:  Waiver Wire, Trades or A.A.A.
NO:  Injuries – They’ll Be Turned Off.
You may use either full or partial players seasons in this round.
CAP –$110
Stadium – In this Round, everyone is going to use WhatIfSports Stadium.

ONE LAST THING:  There's really no reason why anyone should hold up a draft like this for more than a few hours (barring emergencies of course).  If you know your turn is close and you won't be available for a good period of time, for crying out loud - send three or four people who pick behind you your proxies!  Like I said, barring an emergency of some sort, it's really just rude to the others to take an inordinate amount of time to make a pick.

Just my two cents...

Pitching is probably the way to go but I'm an idiot.  1932 - New York Yankees (Hitting)

With regard to the pace of drafting, I actually think the other 5 drafts are moving along quite well.  From my perspective, it takes a LONG time to do proper research for these leagues, and let's face it the stakes are high.  That said, this one is a clear outlier...anyone heard from barracuda?

He's in Vegas this week (he posted this in a few of the Six Drafts Tournament posts in the Theme Leagues forums).  He has limited access and hasn't been checking his site-mail and even told us in that forum to draft without him.  I don't even know if he knows about this draft yet to even check.

I've carved out a few hours this morning and will try to make my pick by [EDIT] 3PM Eastern  (noon Pacific).  I apologize for the delay.
3/17/2014 1:10 PM (edited)
OK, if there's an outlier I don't see it.  Perhaps it's on the hitting side, which I didn't have a chance to research.  I really would've enjoyed doing the full research for this pick, but it'd be at least another 2 days before I could do so, and you've all been kind enough to wait this long so I won't prolong things any more.  My (almost certainly bad) pick is:  1968 Cleveland Indians pitching.

Looks like a pretty good pick to me!
