    Decades: The 80's

    I was all set to talk about the inaugural amature draft but then I looked at it and saw there wasnt anything spectacular but that could change. Philly traded its picks to gain additional picks in the new player draft at the beginning of the season. Sure there are some AS's and ROYs and a few GGs but no MVPs on just the 1 CY to date. And I was hoping to find a late pick that has really surprised but could find that either.

    A couple years ago at the hight of this game Smittias would do stuff like this but those days are gone and I dont have the tools to sort through stats to give cool info so we'll just have to comb through and dig up info the old fashioned way.

    I have 3 teams all out of playoff contention right now so Ive got some time on my hands and i'll try to expand the thread but feel free to post things you think are cool about our 1st decade.

    Surprised to see Danny Miller was a top 10 pick in the inaugural draft. He didn't bust into the league until I took over 4-5 years later

    If #34 is "late", I think James Dillon was a gem. 129 HR's in 3 years so far.

    This gives me an idea, which I probably don't have time to do:

    10 year after draft review. Come up with a scoring system to assess the picks, keep a running cumulative score, and award yearly/5 year/10 year "Best drafter" award. Could be something simple like "Steal of draft" (vastly outperformed slot), "plus pick" (out-performed slot), standard pick (appropriate for draft slot), disappointing (underperformed) and bust (obvious). Obviously very subjective, but could be fun.

    Decades: The 80's

    Or we could self-evaluate if we have the time...

    Seattle was in desperate need of starting pitching in 1981 and grabbed the closest to ready to pitch SP Phillippe Aumont with pick number 3.

    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4783287#

    He did exactly what we needed. He could pitch in Seattle’s four man rotation, never had a losing record and always had a sub 4 ERA. He helped the club maintain minimum wins which was the primary goal. He was a valuable trade piece later, allowing Seattle to move up from pick 14 to 7 while allowing us to get Gerald Miller from STL (who we flipped to KC for Daniel Cohen - who we assume will start next year). He was an All Star selection in 1984. Currently pitching for STL.


    Seattle’s bullpen was a hot mess (a lot of us were in that boat haha) and we grabbed Kevionbasi Kiser with pick 28 as he was the closest to ready.

    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4783270

    He as well did exactly what was wanted. He stepped up quickly into the closing role and transitioned in set up where he remains. He was a two time All Star as a closer. I won’t go as far as to say a gem but he is a cornerstone of my BP.

    In hindsight, solid draft for me.


    Edit: Just saw the 10 year thing haha.

    Oakland with pick 19 selected OF Peter Vines (https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4783329) a very big mess for a 1st rounder, a very bad choice for me.
    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live. I want a new mistake, loose is more than hesitate

    You might have more time than you think: don't we have one more draft to get through before doing a 10-year evaluation?

    I actually used to do something like this in Remake. I was planning to do it here. I would do it different ways. Sometimes I just evaluated the top ten picks; other times I did a top ten busts of the draft, etc.

    Re: Decades: The 80's

    The in totals for the 80's wont be complete until after the playoffs but what wont change is the team with the highest win total of the decade. Baltimore will hold the honor of 794 for the decade.

    23 or 24 teams have made the playoffs in Brockmire's 1st 9 seasons, I think that speaks for the competition in this League.

    My team went pretty much precisely as I'd predicted at the start. Middling salary with middling talent and middling picks in initial draft and first rookie draft resulted in a team with just enough talent to make the playoffs, but not nearly enough to do anything once we got there.

    Kudos to the level of competition and activity in this league, combined with strict win min rules. That makes a quick rebuild possible, because it makes a seller's market most of the time, and I think that's good for everyone. No casting off talent for cheap in order to lose games for high picks.
