RH, much as I'd like a bench coach, that doesn't seem fair. ...
... what's the minimum time commitment?...
...that's where five guys run around and dribble...
Uh, I studied, and am still studying, everyone on my list from yahoo, and there are no catchers. I plan to tweak the order but let yahoo do the draft bit. I can or cannot go find myself some catchers' names and get rid of some other of the 25 names they gave me?????
Do I go through the draft with the given players and then trade before the season starts?
I've read Jespah's notes but am still not clear. Am still working my way through the suggested links.
Thank you, George. I was under the impression you had to stick with the names they give you, but I guess not. In fact if I went with them, I'd be without catchers...
In other words, if it's "time" in the draft -- in Yahoo's computer's estimation ... perhaps round 3 -- to pick up a catcher, and there isn't one in your customized list, it will pull the highest ranked catcher from it's list.
At least I think that's how it works.
Am I supposed to be paying attention yet?
For what it's worth, this is how I did it this year. (Last year I didn't do
anything before the draft and took what the program gave me.)
1. Go to the "Triple A2K" league page.
2. From there go to "Draft Central".
3. From there go to "Pre-Draft Rankings".
4. Select "Edit My Rankings".
5. Pull down "Top 100"
6. In order of preference, click on player name to select and use
right-arrow to move him from "List of Players" to "My Players".
7. In "My Players", use up-arrow and down-arrow to change ranking if
So for example, I moved David Ortiz, Jonathan Papelbon, and Josh
Beckett to higher rankings than Yahoo gave them because of my personal
preferences and citizenship in Red Sox Nation. I moved Albert Pujols to
the "Exclude Players" list because I think his elbow is going to betray him.
At the end, I selected "Save" and "Done" and now I have my own person
rankings list. I'll probably second-guess myself several more time before
the draft. Give me a button and I'll push it.
