    Default 2058 Draft Discussion

    The utility is stocked with the players and correct draft order. If you notice any errors, please let us know or transfer the picks yourself within the util.

    The clock for the 2058 FOBL Draft will turn on Wednesday, Jan 6th at 9AM Eastern. Owners may exercise their picks before the official draft start.

    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 utility 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.

    Salt Lake City is up with the #1 pick.

    johnd hasn't been around since October (at least as the last visited date goes), so YD is stepping up to help out. He's already made the 1.1.

    I mean, the clock isn't really on yet, but he's not been around in ages. If someone wanted to poke him before we otto they could.

    This is a deep draft.

    Conversation overheard after Wichita selected their pick:
    "Hi, I'm Wes Titter!"
    "We can see that, but what's your name?"

    It may be infantile, but I can't tell you how much I want Bob Arreola's nickname to be "Nipples". Can we make this happen?

    I was thinking the same thing but more like Bob "waldrobe malfunction" arreola. When can we make name changes?

    Oy. Here we go again with the stupid nicknames.


    (Never mind that the correct answer is "Pinky". Runner-up, "Silver Dollar.")

    We should consider adjusting the rookie talent modifiers for batters next season. They have been consistently worse (no draft depth) than the generated pitchers for at least 4 seasons now - probably since the last time we tweaked these settings.
