    2151 Draft Thread

    2050 thread

    My nitpick of the year is that removing L/R makes drafting unnecessarily super annoying. I get that you can look at playing performance to see guys with big splits but obviously it just introduces randomness with basically no skill component to the draft - its just a test of risk tolerance.

    I don't really understand why R/L couldn't just work like scouted ratings- at the draft we see something like "big splits" or "small splits" and then it gets more exact over time.

    Agreed, i understand looking at stats to determine big splits. We aren't provided stats at the time of the draft though. Seems a bit cart before horse.

    17/18/19 yr olds - ok, fair, you probably don't know how good/bad they'll be as a lefty from high school alone if you are drafting a high school pitcher. i agree this should be pretty foggy.
    20/21 yr olds - you would know a little bit from a year or two in college.
    22/23 yr olds - absolutely, if they've played in college until age 23, you know if they are gonna get rocked by righties all the time, if a lhp, for example. cause you saw it over and over in college

    I have also never looked into ncaa vs mlb splits for players in my life, so i could totally be talking out my ***.

    Maybe R/L is hidden because they are changing how it works and don't want us to notice. I hope so at least, because it would be neat if they can make lefty pitchers not suck as much.

    That was my hope when I finally figured out splits were being hidden.

    Hatcher is the right answer. so you should take him.
    I love it when you hate me.... in fake baseball games... not in real life... what are you my mother?

    Simple Rules:

    1. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or an elite player, then don't take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    4. Win how you want to win in this game. A lot of us try to define what is the best way or the worst way. Take the easy road and take the easy wins. Then, later, when you realize how boring that can be, find the hard ways to win. Then, show others.

    You just reminded me of Billy Hatcher hitting .750 to sweep The Bash Brothers with the help of Eric Davis, Jose Rijo, and The Nasty Boys in the 1990 World Series. I remember this one way more than ‘88 or ‘89, which are definitely more memorable for most people, probably just because I was finally getting old enough to stay up and at least watch the first few innings of these 8:30 pm games.

    Also Eck had both a 0.614 ERA and 0.614 WHIP for the 1990 regular season, including more saves than baserunners allowed. This led to him being a total monster in some video game of the time. Initial research indicates this might have been RBI Baseball 3, but I’m not positive now. I just remember my neighbor absolutely destroying me with Eck. Whatever game it was, Baseball Stars was better anyway.
