    FOBL Draft Study: 2026-2052 Total Team WAR++ via the draft

    Not super exciting stuff here but you can get some idea of the teams that have depended on (and succeeded with) the rookie draft over the long term versus teams that have focused on free agency and trading.

    NOTES:
    - 2026 start year because no statslab data before then.
    - Tweaked the WAR++ (WAR with overall draft position formula): No negative WAR players with positive WAR++ and less weight on overall draft position.
    - Some teams listed are no longer active.
    - Some teams listed have not participated in all the 2026-2052 rookie drafts.
    - KEN has had that same team ID for two different franchises.

    MBJ (and its evil RANZBA alter ego Perth) abandoned building through the draft long ago.

    Eventually, though, I think it will be necessary to keep a 1st rounder or 2.

    Someone should really do a post-mortem on the Red Stripe dynasty (or vivisection, I guess it's never quite dead). My boiled down version has seemed to be:

    1. Draft Shrimp
    (1b. ok, and Ozzie Bolt & Cisco Strong)
    2. Sell or trade all other picks after that
    3. Load up on productive but underrated guys in FA

    It seems like every offseason I think "man, Doc got some real steals on guys," (like my middle infield from the first half of the '50s...), with a focus on OBP and defense. It's like tramel's player strategy, but more successful.

    That first baseman would have been no good in ORO, hits ball way too far.
