Well that's a massive screw up for me. Jim Thome was playing 1B by the time he started hitting the way I needed him to hit and I need a third baseman.

Is there any chance that I can swap him for Chipper Jones 1999 who hasn't been picked yet?

You still need a DH.

Going to call it an earlier night tonight.

The players are imported using real stars as the base for the ratings. There's a lot of talent in the league so the actual difference is slight but it is interesting seeing the star ratings (have those displaying based on the league).

Right now there are 4 "5 star" players. Rogers Hornsby, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and Babe Ruth.

There are 5 players under "3 star" and I think anyone would take them on their team without hesitation: Andre Dawsson, Hal Newhouser, Alfonso Soriano, Ichiru Suzuki and Cy Young.

That seriously bums me out about Cy Young btw... only the second best season pitching ever and the guy they named the MVPitcher award after and he can’t even get a third star?

Hence the Kershaw pick, guess the GOAT will be doing long relief for me or something.

I read EF's post as the ratings are still exceptional, the game just somehow needs to use the star ratings to show some sort of differentiation between the players. So even though Cy has fewer stars, it's a relative thing.

I've been curious about how to go about roster construction, though - will the AI use a 3rd starter properly out of the bullpen? There are still plenty of very nice starters out there.

Well, shit. Guess I should have gone in reverse order, as he was my next pick. That season was insane.

Yeah, Iím not sure either but I assume it will use the two best starters and if that essentially means Iím down a roster spot, so be it. Having a righty/lefty SP pair is also something that is interesting to me as I doubt anyone has really been thinking about platoons (or has space to do that on an 18 man roster).

Because I'm a nerd and track this stuff, players drafted thus far by position and decade:

Code:
By Position C 6 1B 12 2B 9 3B 10 SS 8 LF 8 CF 10 RF 13 SP 19 RP 8
Code:
By Decade 1880 2 1890 1 1900 3 1910 3 1920 5 1930 3 1940 5 1950 5 1960 9 1970 9 1980 11 1990 17 2000 13 2010 7

Looks like we're up to 11.4 which is bhlloy. Have to go pick my daughter up from work relatively shortly. May not be able to do full updates tonight but will definitely be back to them tomorrow.

Oh, just an off the cuff comment for discussion.

If this goes well and everyone like the season I have been throwing around a couple other ideas for something similar.

Maybe picking random states (or groups of states) and players can only pick one player from that state (group of states) on their team. Was thinking countries but I don't know if that is possible.

Another idea that I had was finding coming up with the worst teams ever based on single season record and only players from those teams can be drafted (and only one from each team can be drafted on each player's team).

Just some food for thought.

Nope, Pujols is still available. Which seems crazy and makes my Helton pick five rounds earlier look somewhat silly.

I'm seriously deliberating between two players, so give me a couple minutes and I'll make my pick.

I love your initial idea so much I'm going to have my friends do it next week (when I get back from travel to KC (seeing Royals-Mets Saturday night). I'd be down for any of this but honestly I'd love to do like 10 seasons of this with maybe each team getting one swap or trade after each season. This is an awesome idea EF.

Also I'll be in on whatever you try but I think the idea of a series of seasons with these players is also awesome
