    Default 2064 Draft has unofficially opened in STATS+ (Official start FRIDAY at 9 AM EST)

    You should all have control of your individual teams.

    You may set a list by dragging and dropping, etc. Just make sure to hit "SAVE" after you make changes (it will bug you about this, but if you leave the page, you'll lose your changes).

    YOU MUST CHECK MY WORK W/R/T THE DRAFT ORDER!

    You snooze, you lose.

    Post any questions/comments in this thread.

    Are you fucking kidding me?


    I hope this pool is a fucking joke.

    Because it IS a fucking joke.


    12 players on the board better than 3 stars?

    Fuck that.

    Put me on auto for 10 seasons, I'll check back later. Not kidding.

    ...top 25 guys in this draft could beat any team I've put in the field in the last 10 seasons in a 7 game series 90% of the time.

    (That is not a commentary on the quality of this draft.)

    I won't go so far as to say it's a joke, but it is weaker than most of the say last 10 drafts, especially on the offensive side of things-especially catcher. Pitching is not so bad.

    Here's the thing though-we've become a bit spoiled of late-expecting great draft classes, and now we have a glut of talent. I lost the best starter in the game, and my #5 starter in free agency (damn you who got them! ), and I already have at least two candidates to replace them from previous drafts. I've been looking at the opposing starting pitchers and relievers the past couple seasons, and it was rare for anyone not outright tanking to have a rating less than 7 in their three main areas. Us "Old people" can remember when a 7 or 8 rating used to be reserved for the top pitchers-now its pretty commonplace for all of your pitchers to have these ratings. So it is a bit of "culture shock" to not see a large number of players like these in this draft.

    So I think a gradual lessening of draft talent is probably a good thing for the league-but not so severe a drop off for the first draft maybe?

    Oof. Batting talent is sparse. Will take it either way. Good to get the draft going.

    Everyone has been re-linked. Please log out and log back into Stats+ and see if that helps.

    You need to join the "#amateur-draft" channel in Slack.

    I am fixing the draft as we speak.

    I gotcha. Crap, I can't log in from Slack at work, only through Facebook. Would it still work?

    I can get in through my phone. That should be good enough.

    Everyone needs to make sure they have notifications active on slack to go to your email or whatever. It "@"'s you when you're on the clock.

    The notifications come from the#amateur-draft channel, so make sure you've joined that channel or you won't get the notifications.

    That's a much more appropriate distribution of stars.
    You can take me back off auto.
    Thanks!

    If Stats+ says that you are not registered to a team, PM me or @ me at Slack and I'll fix it.

    What's with the little pink A's next to some players that have been drafted? Does that indicate guys I had on my list?

    Pretty sure it's guys who were auto-picked, either through list or otto.

    Slack is down, so I'm using the draft until notifications are back up.
