    Default What % of our top current players were drafted from each draft round?

    I selected the current top 60 batters (by OPS, min 180 AB's) and top 60 pitchers (by ERA, min 30 IP) and checked their draft round. Can you guess what kind of draft round mixes we have for the FOBL's current best players? There will be 9 poll options, of which 2 will be correct (one selection for the current top 60 batter draft round mix and 1 for the top 60 pitchers).

    FYI: I will post the correct answers before the end of this week. Nothing groundbreaking here, just slightly eyebrow raising.

    And the answers (attached image). LOTS of round 1 guys of course but honestly I expected the % to be even higher.

    Honestly with the amount of 1st round busts that I have had. I'm shocked it's that high. But that's me and my data set is small.

    Yeah, no kidding. Although you can't have a completely superstar roster. Someone's got to be available to pinch run occasionally.

    How so - more late rounders making it or...?

    I always thought if we upped that 1-200 scale player dev volatility setting that was supposed to allow for more 1st rnd busts and more late round sleepers, but that wasn't necessarily what everyone wanted. The apx. 50% 1st rnd busts are not exactly popular right now.

    Psst: I tried to troll Steve in the Power 32 earlier this season with "Someday the Whores might pay for this prospect focus if they ever run into bad dev luck". I'm such a stinker.

    More late rounders make it in v17. Way more.

    From my rough look at 10 seasons worth of players, with jacked creation mods for version 16 vs. normalized ones for versions 17, saw a 450% increase in serviceable players drafted in rounds 6-10. By serviceable I mean 1000 hits or 1000 innings pitched (by that criteria first round picks were successful about 64% of the time). They might not be great but somebody ran them out on the field consistently.

    Now that 450% increase meant it went from 4 players of 240 to 18 players of 240, so its not like half of the seventh round made the bigs. Most of them still suck.

    But the average draft position of MVPs went from the 6th pick of round 1 to the 10th pick of round 2. A 3rd rounder won 5 MVPs, and a 6th, 7th rounder and 10th rounder each won 1. And 14 guys who were drafted in the 1st round.

    The change wasn't as dramatic with Cy Youngs -- dropping from 1.12 to 1.14 -- but ROYs dropped from the 2.16 to 3.9
