Unless you're an extreme :nerd: like me and signed up in 2001 before we started doing these drafts. :bag:

That's where I got my info - my join date was Jan 2005, which is why I assumed we drafted in 2004.

FWIW, I tried searching for the original all time MLB draft, but to no avail. :sadbanana: 

 

Also, where's BaseballTangent(tm) when you need it!

By 2006, we were already on our fourth - did like two a year plus those early years.  Can't find an actual forum page yet, but found this:

Feb 10 2006, 03:28 PM
In: WIS IV Draft (1946-1968)
By: KraftSingles

 

I am pretty sure that was the Larry Plateau draft (aka, the Tony Oliva Dilemma)

Harrier Rankings were the best. 

And by best, I mean as good or bad as anyone elses - but did have the benefit of making Harrier appear to be some genius on all things sim baseball.

After never winning a league that drafted for the SIM and then possibly going to jail, he was barely heard from, again.

I think I cracked harrrrrankings in one of the sims. I analyzed past sim results and made a convoluted formula to evaluate players. Every time I picked someone really obscure that was on nobody else's radar, Harrier would tell me I sniped him. I ended up losing 100 games.

Let's get Larry Boy back in this place. No trading of picks still in place, so we should be safe.

Can't we trade picks? Don't think I have, but thought we could. 

I've certainly traded players.  :coffee:

I think the rule is no trading of draft picks in the first three rounds, The Larry Rule.

I think we did the draft in 2004, WIS in early 2005 for that.

Yep, December 2004 was the start of what would become the WIS I draft. Initially, it was just a Best All-Time Baseball Players Draft or something -- it was roughly halfway through that discussion took root of a way to play our squads against one another. Mrharrier, since he had played it before, took to the WIS proposal right away -- I hope I wasn't the only one who internally asked "Who?" when he drafted Cupid Childs at 2B late in that first draft.

Drafts were very casual back then ... that first draft was lasted until late January 2005. WIS I kicked off shortly afterward.

We were "chain drafting" for a while, kicking off the next WIS draft as soon as the prior league's World Series wrapped up. WIS II draft was May 2005, WIS III was September/October 2005. WIS IV was January 2006 ... I remember shooting the breeze in the draft thread about buying a car at that time.

I never could find the original thread on FBG, but I've found some Baseball Tangent draft threads via the Wayback Machine site.

Looks like 1 more open spot.

@Sammy3469? @RnR? @Notorious T.R.E.?

Hey, nerds. I’ve been in all of these. Seat’s reserved.

Also, BBT is in safe hands.

I remember the Tony Oliva Larry Plateau trade as I was on my least fav phone EVAH - trying to scroll through the thread on a freakin' blackberry pearl (ye of the repeated post syndrome).  Judging by the bar I was at, must have been a mid-week daytime drinking day.

I remember my failed Dave Stieb being made while taking a whizz at the urinal pick at Foxwoods Casino during my mid-WIS period slump.  I made like the first 7 or 8 playoffs, winning a couple WS, but then fell off the cliff and just sucked for a few seasons before finding a new approach and getting back to the top of the mountain. And what glorious views they were.

One really smart person started archiving the results of these drafts and posted them in post No. 2 of each draft. Newbies have dropped the ball there.

I'm probably gonna spend the time working with Lucas Duda behind the plate instead. We have big plans for 2018 after tanking for the No.1 pick in this year's draft.

If the draft starts after Feb. 2, I'm in. I'm at a work retreat thing in northern Quebec next week and I don't think I'll be able to check in much at all.

Should I roll :oldunsure: or is this kicking off right away. At the airport waiting to fly out now.

Who do I copy on the roll?

Or you can just slot me wherever Anthony Rizzo is going to get picked for the fourth straight year.
