Had to jump on Tommy Bond and White a few rounds earlier than I wanted. 1910's were shallow, especially with IP being a value category for me. Had Adams, Bond, White, Leonard targeted as first choice options from the start. Joe Berry was first choice option too, but he depended on my IP count. Face was an either/or preference. The rest is whatever.

    My strat was to target players who went undrafted in VD10, well hope they slid more than they should. Couldn't really risk that after all the chatter.
    I was very worried about my team's chances after Bender got picked. For some silly reason, I thought that Cicotte would fall further and that even if he didn't Bender would be around for a while anyway. The drop after Bender felt precipitous. There are a glut of next-level 1910s dudes who are good, but fit much better with punters. Bender is the last of the anchor 1910s guys.

    Without looking or using your brain in any real fashion, what time would you guess it is in Ireland. 9 am is what I'm guessing without looking.

    Edit: It's 6:27 there right now.

    Poorly conceived and ill-planned team reviews:

    Controller J: Hell yeah. Poured on the big pitchers early and used some very nice value to establish a pitching base while barely even tapping into the elite pitching decades early on. His team is extremely well balanced and doesn't look to be struggling in any one area at all.
    Awesome value: Chipper in the 10th
    Snaked me like a dick: Eddie Cicotte in the 7th, bonus points for Bunning in the 15th.
    Best back to back picks: Pedro followed by Kid Nichols. Ballsy move that's worked out very nicely.


    DMT: Started off crushing everyone else points-wise for a while there. Had a particularly strong run of picks in the 6-10 range. Also looks to be strong across the board with no big weaknesses, but needs to make some offense get crackin'. Definitely has some juice at both ends of the ball. And of course with Big Train, you can build bold strategies and still maintain awesome ratios or kind of whatever you want on the pitching side.
    Awesome value: I'm going with Kershaw in the 8th.
    Snaked me like a dick: Wilhelm in the 6th.
    Best back to back picks: Greenberg Wilhelm

    Johnny: I know he thinks he got outed, but I and I'm sure a few others were suspicious right after Adams was picked. Looked like a draft from the days of old. The old strategy that never lost, as a matter of fact! Strong move, ja24. Team is coming around perfectly and will be nearly as strong as can be in the non-tanked categories. Will it be enough to take the title? We shall see. Very, very solid draft overall.
    Awesome value: Victor Martinez in the 11th
    Snaked me like a dick: Dutch Leonard then Jose Canseco
    Best back to back picks: LOVED that first three opening. Good stuff. Unbelievable and bankable stats out of terrible decades. Bold stuff, JA. Bold as love. Just like an axis.


    More to come and maybe more well-thought out ones.

    You have the 14th pick in each round, same format as VD13. You can't pick anyone who was drafted in VD13 before your pick (so for your first pick you can take anyone drafted in rounds 2-27, for your second anyone in 3-27, etc.) Build the best team you can.

    Before the deadline at the end of the draft, post your team to pastebin.com and save the URL it's at - this gives you a timestamp for your team's creation but doesn't reveal your team to anyone else. After the deadline, post the URL of your team in the thread and someone can collate all of them and figure out the standings.
    that is a great idea! let's do it!
    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    I did projections and while starting to optimize, one mystery team just keeps getting better and better with every optimization and is running away with it.

    Mysterious, but not that surprising?

    I don't think I have a chance in hell. My ceiling with this strat isn't high enough to complete with a really good all-round team, and notwithstanding that, my hitting isn't good enough to even hit that ceiling.

    Giambi seems like my best pick. Might end up being wrong.
