***BTTF VI: Draft Over! See you in October

Recommended Posts

I probably would have gone SP even if Kershaw went #1. The SP fear is real and the thought of waiting 46 picks for one is frightening to me now.

i love these sort of posts. stoke the fears about a position you've got covered.

I had like 900 usable innings last year on the team I was actually trying to draft well. Bad news.

Google Sheet

I copied from last year and updated the draft order. The 2015 team pages haven't been cleaned up

Great, that was a waste of 20 minutes

I'm sure your's will be better. I just took the 2015 list and deleted all the names. That's not innovation.

Quick look at this shows no auto populations of rosters. Anyone interested in that. Looks like some people have entered their teams and some have not

Yeah, last year I took Strasburg over Goldschmidt. Oops.

Nah

5 hours with no picks. we had a good run

Seriously, it's just a house. Not like it's going to run away or anything. Like the real estate agent is going to lose out on a sale. He should tell the agent he needs 10 minutes to take care of something. It's not like they aren't going to let him have the house.

Sheesh, talk about mixed up priorities.

A house is not a home but a draft thread is

Sorry guys. In addition to closing on the house this is also the week of out annual sales conference, so I've had events going late in the night all week. I should be in better shape after today.

I'll take Stanton

He won for me last year, I'll try it again.

Well, there were my top four. Kershaw has the advantage but the others were a tough choice. Almost went Bumgarner, but decided on Arrieta's historic whip and HR rates, even in a much more offensive oriented park. Scherz was just behind - probably the safest bet, but historic baseline suggests maybe not quite as dominating as the others for WIS purposes.

You, of all people, should be aware of his WIS effectiveness.

Arrieta is by far the least safe of the choices imo, but he had a heck of a season last year. Just two years ago, he was kind of sucky. Had a .246 babip last year...his career average is .272.

As always, Koya knows best though.

I really don't know who I would have picked 4th. Arrieta probably as good a choice as any. I usually write down who I was considering as an alternative, so I can go back and see how dumb I was. For my Trout pick, I wrote... Correa, I guess... or xxxxxxxxxxx (player who isn't picked yet)

Yes, killer stats - but if he goes toward his higher historical whips and HR rate could be less uber awesome since we are cutting hairs
