It just doesn't matter


It just doesn't matter

Another vile SP redraft. I didn't save 1 SP because I learned my lesson. So I redraft get 2 decent SP's then go from an 83 to a 59 and it was crap the rest of the way. Now tell, there wasn't one player in the 70's or 60's I could have been offered?SP, that's right. It gets old Guy. 34 SP's 60 and above. Now in the supplemental draft, guess what I have to address with all 3 of my picks?

Re: It just doesn't matter

Here's a solution. Add the all the deadballers to ATG. There would be a vast amount of more decent players added to the pool. Make the SP draft symmetrical 90-80-70-60-50. I just don't understand why this is such an issue that it can't be done.

CHANGE MY MIND

Re: It just doesn't matter

The draft was literally just changed to ensure more symmetry. A #3 can absolutely be a 59 though. Please point me to the league so I can investigate.

There are not enough players in the 90s for everyone to have one. So it can’t go 90-80-70. The aces in a typical ATG go from about 85-90. The number two’s go from 70-85. The number threes go from 55-70. There are about 12-15 in each of those pools.

You are not likely to get a player in the 70s after you get your 80s ranked player because 70-85 are the #2 pool and other teams need a #2. Using the latest formula my last ATG landed me with Pedro (96) Alexander (83) Seaver (65) Hudson (56) Candalaria (42). That is an expected quick draft in ATG. I was at the bottom of the Supp draft so I got all offensive players. But once I upgrade my #5 and slump bust my #2 I should be fine.

I don’t really get why there is so much angst from a few certain inviduals. It’s like people haven’t figured out a strategy if they don’t end up with a bunch of 60+ pitchers, which nobody in the Quick Draft ends up with. Nor have they ever.

So......I have never done a ATG League.....so I did one just now to see what was up.....here is my team....https://www.pennantchase.com/lgRoster.aspx?tid=644-9&lgid=644......this is just my opinion but I think the pitching here is definitely not what I would expect to get from a ALL TIME standpoint. I can't say the hitting I got is bad, and I would like to think I will have a high supplementary pick to get another quality starter or 2, so in some ways I see where people might expect more from the pitching with what is available for hitting.

Re: Re: It just doesn't matter

Team looks solid.....I've gotten so stuck in playing in my "comfort zone" so I read these posts about the pitching in drafts and am trying to learn more so I can be better in the leagues I am in.

I saved a pen thank goodness and my hitting is doable.

I never complain about the hitting. I'm well versed enough to make hitting work. It's just the SP blows more times than not .
