Quick draft


Quick draft

First I'd like to say that I love having the endless number of leagues to join. Huge props for that. Secondly I just drafted and wasn't offered a second baseman in the last few rounds, leaving me without one...I saw a post regarding this. Will there be a fix for this? Not a huge issue as I can address it in the supp draft.

Re: Quick draft

Trust me, you were offered a second Baseman, however with the new set up the players offered are not by specific position anymore.

So you didn't care for what the SIM offered you as a 2B choice and took something else, like an extra 3B or SS

Looks like you will need to pick from the FA scraps.

Re: Quick draft

SCM is basically right, you're making a strategic choice now, the new style won't save you in the final rounds, except at catcher because teams are wrecked without a catcher. If this becomes a massive problem, I can look into ways to fix it, but the idea was to add a little more variety and risk/reward.

"What's a Quick Draft?", said 2018 leagues.

Re: Re: Quick draft

Ok fair enough. I was offered an the early rounds and then never again if I didnt articulate that.

Re: Quick draft

Brian - three open right now!!

Re: Quick draft

Thanks. I actually want a keeper one, but progress!

Re: Re: Quick draft

Right now there are 17 Best of 2017 Keeper Leagues available. Guess we have to wait for them to run (if ever) and change to 2018.

Re: Quick draft

I have the same problem with many leagues... I was left without any 1B,3B or 2B in couple of drafts..

Let say I will see a less talented players offered to me at 2nd base in round 3... but in no way should I pick this guy over Barry Bonds and co...

And then no more players are offered at that position in the subsequent rounds...

How can we guess that no 2B,or 3B or 1B are going to be offered to us for the next 10 rounds?

I don't see it as too much of a problem, since it can get fix in the supp draft...



Re: Re: Quick draft

How do you tell what kind of quick draft it is? sp rp c 1b 2b or sp rp 1st pos 2nd pos etc. I can't figure it out. Thanks

Re: Quick draft

Once hitters start, you'll know the difference - if you are offered C, C, 1B etc then you're on the old system.

Re: Re: Quick draft

I've got that but is there a way to know that before you pick a team? thanks

Re: Quick draft

Ah. No not really.

Re: Re: Quick draft

MEEP!

I guess I've been lucky so far! I've just been drafting with the presumption all the spots would be filled by the upcoming choices, and they have so far for me.

I'll know to keep an eye on things now.
