Thread: MLB Blitz Plan

  1. #1

    MLB Blitz Plan

    Ok fellas I'm back and looking to revive, well maybe reboot, the league. Here's my plan.

    Roster wise, I'm about halfway through the tedious process of moving all players back to their original team. This means if a player was drafted through the new team draft or amateur draft, he is going back to that team. Otherwise, they end up in the FA pool. Once that is complete, I plan on having a FA draft, although what that looks like is blurry until I see how many FA are in the pool.

    League Name: MLB Blitz
    Salary: 65 Mil
    PSFA: 8 per year
    Sim rate: 8 per day

    I plan to add some cool features to the forums. This includes preseason, midseason, and postseason power rankings (xet can maybe help with those). I also plan to bring back the league/team history spreadsheet, along with postseason analysis on the series like before. If anyone has any more cool forum suggestions, let me know. I'll also be cleaning up the forums page, and putting most of the threads in a 'MLB Prospects' folder as opposed to the 'MLB Blitz'

    Draft wise I plan to run the draft myself, although I have never run one before. I'm a quick learner, but if anyone has tips for me that'd be awesome. I'm planning on blocks of 6 for the first round, blocks of 8 for the second round, and I am still deciding whether to not have a third round, or have a one block third. Suggestions are welcome.

    Some teams have very bad allocations, and that is unfair to new owners, so I am going to progress the league to 4/1 and have everyone have 10/10 allocations. More on this to come.

    Now you may be asking, what about owners? I have a list of good owners in mind to take some teams and create a good core group of players, maybe about 14. Hopefully, the forum activity and good core will draw in the fringe owners who come and go, and maybe a couple stick for good. Recruitment will be good, although I'd save heavy recruitment for when the foundation of the league is set. I have a lot of free time for the foreseeable future, and plan to work hard at making this league succeed and stay successful.

    So that's my plan. It's been about a year too long without MLB Prospects baseball.

    This is awesome! I’d be interested- although admittedly I need to drop some teams! Lol.

    Some other suggestions for features- draft analysis and preseason analysis/predictions to go along with the power rankings. I have done these in other leagues and would be willing to do some.

    Any questions on the draft, lmk. It’s really not too bad. About 15 mins a day to run it.

    I have started the league to get us to 4/1, and every team will have full allocations. I'll pause it on 4/1, (should be 6 PM ET on the 13th) reassign all players, then we'll start filling owners. Once owners are filled, we will have a FA draft. After the draft, owners will have a period of time to make trades, drop players, and put in bids for the remaining FA's. Once that is done, I plan on releasing (with maybe some help) preseason power rankings and analysis, and the sim will be started again.

    League has been paused at 4/1 and teams assigned to owners. Once the rest of the teams get filled up, the FA draft will start, then the league will start running like normal. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY ROSTER MOVES UNTIL AFTER THE FA DRAFT! In order to keep the FA draft fair, please wait until after the draft to release players or make trades.

    Re: MLB Blitz Plan

    We have just filled the league, so the FA draft will commence now. Please do not make any transactions until the FA Draft is over. After the draft, there will be a one day wait to allow people to make transactions, and then the league will be resumed.

    Re: MLB Blitz Plan

    Are we allowed to change our team names ? I can wait till after this FA draft to do so, but hope to get out of Daytona Beach for opening day - too many hurricanes!
