    We each draft:

    *8 position players
    *a DH
    *two pinch hitters
    *three starting pitchers (as if it’s a playoff series)
    *two relievers
    *four wildcards (could relievers, starters, or another position player/bat)
    *one manager
    *one ballpark


    That’s 22 rounds. Ballparks might seem odd to some but teams in real life are generally formed with the ballparks in mind, to some degree. Any player, manager or ballpark can be drafted in any round.

    Similar to how we form our NBA draft teams, we’re using peak players. Obviously though longevity comes into play some. With the team you form, HOW WOULD IT DO IN A SEVEN GAME SERIES?

    As always, there’s a 24 hour time limit. And we can trade. Let’s begin.

    Reply to sign up here.

    FYI, we won’t start until the completion of the current NBA Draft and playoffs...so in about 2-3 weeks probably.

    Thanks for invitation Wes but I have no idea at all about baseball. If you organise the hottest women in the history of cinema draft I would be in though.

    I'll do it. I'll be surprised if we get enough people though.

    That’s two! What’s the minimum number you think we need to do this?

    I understand that baseball exists, and some dude pitched really well on LSD. Other than that...

    Oh. Joe DiMaggio was married to Marilyn Monroe and left flowers on her grave every week until he died.

    Should be more than 1 1/2 position players on the bench. Today's game pitchers don't last as long. Need more bench players for that reason. I'd say 3 bench and 6 total pitchers if you don't want to do a full 25 man roster.

    I’ll fully admit to not being very baseball knowledgeable, but I’m pretty sure I can at least keep from embarrassing myself.

    I’m in.

    Not for me. I think baseball barely qualifies as a "sport" and is 2nd only to soccer in boring. And I played baseball for 2 years in high school.

    Baseball is definitely the most boring sport. I can tolerate Soccer. I’m willing to learn about baseball history as we do this though. I’m also interested to see the final draft board.

    While I appreciate the invite, I'm even worse at fantasy baseball than at fantasy basketball. And as those of you who remember when @dalamon invited me to Ugly's Yahoo basketball thing, I'm pretty freaking terrible.

    Oh, but I can remember most of the batting lineup of the late 90s Braves because my sister watched Family Matters and Full House on Superstation and would leave the TV on after. I don't know if that would help in this fantasy draft, though.

    Not fantasy just a bunch of guys selecting any baseball player you want to form a team. It’s fun.

    Again, I only know those Braves teams. And even that subconsciously, it seems. :D
