    That's really sweet you thought of me. I can name about 3 baseball players Juan Soto, Noah Cindergaurd (Thor, not sure how you spell his last name) and Steven Struasburg (I live in the DC area and I can't spell that one either). If I wasn't so freakishly busy with a full time job and raising two kids I'd wing it, but I'd really slow down your draft. Oddly tempting though!

    I loved that part of it. I think doing it twice was enough because there are limits to variety doing it that way, but it was fun trying to guess what franchise was coming next.

    Amazing.

    I'm still a little surprised nobody put up a franchise like the Spiders or Grays with literally one worthwhile selection available. I suspect after his post season performance last season, it might have happened with the Grays this season had the mechanic remained in effect.

    Everyone knows I thought about it -- often -- but even I, as terrible a human being that I am, couldn't bring myself to do it. Diamondbacks was my limit...

    probably a wise choice. the baseball draft is a bit like thermo-nuclear war. the only way to win is not to play. or be pg.

    the amazing thing about the grays is that they only have one eligible season, and only 14 players in that one year. easily their best hitter hit .275 with a total of 15 extra base hits. they have no one who is even matt lemke level.

    sadly i don't think skinny o'neal is draftable. they had to use some archaic printing technology just to render his face.

    given my history of correctly placing hall of fame shortstops from Cleveland in the correct position, this should not surprise you

    but the beauty of our baseball draft is that you're not required to pay attention to anything! you can just draft the likes of rusty kuntz and dick pole and call it a day.

    Alright, let's get started. @anakinfansince1983 I'm putting you in the slot for now. Are you okay co-GMing if someone who was tentative but thought it was "too much work" or "they didn't follow enough baseball" wants to tag-team with you?

    Draft order will be in the next post. Please remember a few things:

    1) You have to draft to the roster minimums of:

    (1) Catcher, (1) First Baseman, (1) Second Baseman, (1) Third Baseman, (1) Shortstop, (3) Outfielders, (4) Starting Pitchers, (1) Relief Pitcher, (4) Utility Position Players, (1) Utility Pitcher, and the remainder (7) slots can be filled by any player.

    2) You can draft any player, any franchise, any team at any point in time, as long as that player has not already been drafted. Once a player is drafted, they cannot be selected again (only exception: Babe Ruth available as pitcher and position player)

    3) The eligible seasons for the draft are: 1885 - 2019

    4) Please make your selections in this format:

    Name - Position (Franchise, Year)

    5) Please tag the person after you when making your selection.

    6) Trades are open throughout the draft. To complete a trade, have a private conversation with myself and all parties to the trade. All parties must obviously say yes to the terms of the trade, and I must see it and acknowledge it before it is final and approved.

    7) Have fun. Hate Baseball. Take your "vitamins"

    My God, now I have to think. I'm scared.

    Also, what are the restrictions on changing a player's year/franchise post-draft?

    Amazing.
