    Default 2055 Draft Discussion

    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 2055 FOBL Draft will turn on Monday, March 30th 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.

    Norwich is up with the #1 pick.

    I set the preference list to take best available non-pitcher and then best available pitcher, so if it doesn't fire just otto according to that please.

    Heh, yeah - still haven't gotten this tool to auto-fire for BPA. But noted, thanks.

    Is top of the third round too early to select somebody because they have a "cool" name? Hope not, because GRN have just picked Ian Doody.
