    The 2013 Draft class will be available Friday morning after the sim is complete. I have shortened the sim duration so that there is the maximum amount of time to complete at the bare minimum Rounds 1-4 on the boards. I apologize that we still do not have Statslab up and running. If there is ANYONE who is familiar with SQL and would like to assist me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    In any event, here is how it will work...

    First you have the game itself to look at players. You will also have the reports here: http://traditionsportsonline.com/ts...ague_100_rookie_draft_pool_batter_report.html AND here http://traditionsportsonline.com/ts...gue_100_rookie_draft_pool_pitcher_report.html which you can reference if need be as well.

    Each pick will be timed. I highly recommend that if you cannot be around, that you send me, ryalaman, fiddy14 and recchem2000 a draft list via PM so we can keep the draft moving. In addition, once you have picked, you are required to PM and Tag the next person in the draft order. I am hoping people have their alert notices set to receieve an email when they receive a PM. IF YOU MISS YOUR PICK, I will pick the best available player for you.



    In this mobile age there is no reason why you cannot send a pick via skype, or install forum runner or send the 4 guys listed above a list. So I don't want to hear any bitching :p

    Now that that is out of the way....

    The draft will flow as follows:


    Saturday 6/9 9AM EST- Draft begins. There is a 2 hour time limit on each pick! Once a pick is made, Tag and PM the next in line. Myself, Ryal, Fiddy14 and Recchem will be monitoring the draft to ensure things are moving.

    The draft will run until 9PM EST each day. You are free to continue to pick after 9PM EST, but there is no time limit. Once the next day begins at 9AM, the clock starts again.

    The draft will conclude on Friday 6/15. At 8PM EST. That gives 6 days, which is plenty of time. We will then sim June 1-10 and I will process the draft manually. YOU CAN ALSO SUBMIT A DRAFT LIST IN GAME FOR LATER PICKS BEYOND WHAT WE DRAFT ON BOARDS!!

    Sidenote: If you don't pick and I'm the only one around, I may decide that you REALLY need a 28 yr old half star MR. So send in your picks.

    Is it possible to make the entire draft board through OOTP?

    Yes you can actually, but we will have no way of referencing your board in game to make your picks. The game does a great job of picking from the list, in fact we did rounds 2-25 that way last year and every pick was flawless.

    Yes. You are the only one who can see your list.
