    Default 2054 Draft Discussion thread

    This year we will be using the VPI draft utility to conduct the draft.

    Cuervo has stocked the utility with the players and correct draft order. If you notice any errors, please let us know or transfer the picks yourself within the util (you can do this again!)

    The clock for the 2054 FOBL Draft will turn on Tuesday, January 6 at 9AM Eastern.

    The Draft Clock


    Based on the round in question each team shall have a maximum window in which to make their pick using the draft utility.

    Round 1: 4 hours
    Round 2: 3 hours
    Rounds 3: 2 hours
    Rounds 4-5: 1 hour

    The draft window will run from 9 AM EST to midnight EST. (time spent on the clock outside of these hours will not count against the allotment).

    IMPORTANT: The VPI clock has to be monitored and otto'd MANUALLY. So, if someone is over their time give one of the BoG or Draft Czar Doc a heads up. BPA may also be a little wonky, but you are encouraged to use it nonetheless (admin will check for this before making a pick). You are also advised to TURN ON EMAIL UPDATES to alert you when your pick is up.

    The usual draft class page is stocked: http://www.thefobl.com/draft/draftclass.php.

    Northampton is up with the #1 pick.

    He's been in the lounge, I can ask him. I would think taking a 1.3 would be the most fun thing to do if not being all that involved.

    This is another year that I'm not terribly broken up about trading away all my picks.

    I think this is a good pitching draft-one elite guy for sure (that I tried to trade up for), but quite a few solid/possible elite guys) I was very happy to get a 8/7/10 guy with the 14th pick. not sure how the offensive side looks though.

    The top three or four offensive guys are good ones. Dropped off pretty quickly, I think, which really stinks when most of my top 20 and 8 of my top 10 are pitchers.
