IPI 2011 Mock Draft...who wants in?

Postby TonyIBI » Fri May 13, 2011 10:29 pm

We are gonna do a site mock draft the weekend before the draft. It will post then, likley do the actual mock the Thurs or Fri before it.

What I was hoping to do is have me serve as moderator.....and then get a bunch of you to serve as the teams and make the picks based on who is on the board. Let me know if you are interested. If we get 15 guys, then each guy will get 2 picks in the first round....if we get 10 guys, then each of you get 3 of the teams in the first round, etc. You will draw teams.

Would like to get this finalized soon....by end of next week so we can work out particulars before conducting the Mock on Thursday 6/2 or Friday 6/3.

Anyone else who wants in, lemme know. No obligation other than you simply need to make the pick and maybe a 2-3 sentence reason why you made it.

How about some time on the Tuesday before the draft....May 31st? I assume evening would work well for most.

That's not a problem at all. I'm off from work every Tuesday. Just an idea but let the guys who can't do evenings Pick early and then the rest who can fill in the remainder.

Some questions and or some suggested ground rules or parameters

1. Money versus Talent: Does "the group" want to use slot value as a parameter for making a pick.. or is this mock all about the talent & not the money? What's the budget?

2. No compensatory sammich picks..?

3. Number of rounds: three?.. ten?... more? less?

Any suggestions would be nice..

To respond to my own questions/suggestions: Slot value yes. budget yes, compensatory sammiches. no.. five rounds.. :pleasantry:

First round only. No compension rounds. And whoever makes the pick is making it based on what they think occurs given who is available for that team at the time of the pick. If you think the team has budget concerns or not, include that in your analysis before making the pick.

No ground rules really. You just make the pick based on what you feel happens there when that team comes up.

Tuesday's good for me. When do we draw for teams? Need to do some research.

Ok....Tuesday it is. We have five participants in Andrew, Jellis, HomeAway, Geronimo, and Rocky. Each of you will get 6 of the 30 picks.

What I will do is come up with an order 1-5 to start....and it just keeps rolling over from there. So after #5 then the 6th pick is made by #1 (11th pick by #1) etc.

I think the easiest way to do this is just open a thread on Monday late and then you guys just make the picks so everyone can see. Email or whatever may be too hard to follow.

Could we have an official start time on Tuesday, say 10:00AM? The time's just a suggestion, I'm flexible that day. Whatever works for the group. Do you have a little bingo drum to do the lottery? :biggrin:

Let's do this. 5mins a pick max. So, would anyone be against a Tues morning start or a Tuesday night start?

Or, seeing how so many may be off.....what if we did it Monday night to start at 7pm, 8pm, or 9pm? You guys let me know.

I'd say let's do Monday night, say like 7pm, to give us more time. That way, if need be, if we need a little more time, we can extend into Tuesday morning.

Ok, I am unsure if we will be able to have a set time when people can all be around for 2-4 hours to make the picks all at once. So maybe we just start this mock with the 1st pick on Sunday or Monday....and over the course of a few days people chime in when they can with their pick. I'd like to post the mock next Saturday just before the draft.

Any time indicated here works for me..just post a time.

So, how many do we have?.. 8 or 10?>.. so three or four picks/teams per guy?.

So.. what we're looking for might be exemplified as follows: I select Jeremy Sowers for the CWSox because they need a soft tossing lefty who can't hold runners, can't command his fastball and refuses to throw his curve ball.. The CWSox don't have anyone like that and it's a HUGE VOID in their system!!

sort of?

Okay, just used a random sequence generator to come up with the draft order.

I used 30 numbers and you guys were assigned these numbers:

Andrew: 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26
Rocky: 2, 7, 12, 17, 22, 27
Home: 3, 8, 13, 18, 23, 28
Geronimo: 4, 9, 14, 19, 24, 29
Jellis: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30

Here is the numbers that came up in order:

1. 16 Andrew
2. 18 Home
3. 10 Jellis
4. 19 Geronimo
5. 8 Home
6. 26 Andrew
7. 12 Rocky
8. 9 Geronimo
9. 25 Jellis
10. 3 Home
11. 6 Andrew
12. 23 Home
13. 21 Andrew
14. 22 Rocky
15. 30 Jellis
16. 28 Home
17. 13 Home
18. 24 Geromino
19. 17 Rocky
20. 15 Jellis
21. 11 Andrew
22. 14 Geronimo
23. 2 Rocky
24. 1 Andrew
25. 4 Geromino
26. 7 Rocky
27. 20 Jellis
28. 29 Geronimo
29. 27 Rocky
30. 5 Jellis

I will make an official draft listing with the team name and person in parenthese later (unless someone else beats me to it).

Thanks for the updated draft order Andrew...and color coded to boot!

Again, simply make the pick based on what you think the team does there. Team need not apply as teams almost ALWAYS are taking BPA. So take who you would. Provide a 1-2 sentence answer why you made the pick.

Am I misinterpreting what you're saying?. The draft (w/ Andrew going first) can begin anytime he wants? :dunno:

You mean I should move Corey "Mr Wood Bats" Spangenberg out of the # 1 spot for the Indians?.. I D K.. he's got two left feet and no power, but I'm sure his BBCOR & BESR hitting values are, as Judge Smails says: ".... top notch son, TOP NOTCH!.."

BTW.. it would be Plucking the Yew!!.. the forerunner of "fuck you"... from olden tymes...

After further review, I think we just start the draft now. The picks can come in as we go along. I don't think anything will change waiting 2-3 days.

I will start a new thread for the mock...
