I'd like 14 rounds at a minimum but more is okay with me.

Whether its 12 or 14 rounds, you just place your next 2+ draft picks at the top of your autodraft card. At that point it's mostly platoons, back ups, no. 2-5 relievers, 3-5 starters, no. 8 or 9 hitter in line-up, etc. Sure these guys matter, but if it was someone critical pick him earlier.

congratulations to Moodywoody for winning their 90s world series and a spot in the finals tournament looking for championship #4. I believe that Moodywoody is the 11th seed due to winning the first tiebreak (2 finals wins) and Icterus Galbuli gets the 12th seed and unfortunately Rjnewman does not make the tournament this year due to the 2nd tiebreaker. So, the final 12 are set. The final seeding will depend on whether hallerose comes back from down 2-3 to win their series and daveaq31 could climb to the 6th seed by coming back from 2-3 to win their series or remain at the 8th seed. The draft has started but can go no farther than the 3rd pick until the finish of hallerose's 90s world series.

Good luck to everybody in final 12 in tournament. I hope Moodywoody wins. There was a point with three games to go in the 90's that statistically speaking I had about a 1% chance of not making the final 12. If I had one 2/3 I would have made playoffs and finished top 5. The only way I could possibly be out was to be swept. I was swept. I needed to win one game to finish no worse than 9th. The last game in the season I had Pedro Martinez (the best pitcher in the 90's set pitching for me) He carried a 5-1 lead into the bottom of the ninth. My opponent scored 5 runs in bottom of ninth to win 6-5 in game 162. At the end of the 8th inning statistically speaking I would say there was about a million to one shot to not make final 12. I had to lose that game then many other teams had to win many games, playoff series etc to knock me out. As is there was a three way tie that knocked me out and put Moodywoody in. Beware of the strat gods gentleman. Moodywoody being in and me out was an astronomical set of circumstances. Moodwoody maybe set up for his third championship! :roll: :!:

Awful stomach punch, Rjnewman - tremendous recap, though.

Rjnewman - tough break. What a way to ruin a great tournament. Next year we should consider expanding the playoffs to give someone like you a shot after a great run. It's tough having just 12 move on.

By the way, Moodywoody is going for his 4th ring not 3rd - he's already won 3 times!

Hi folks, a few notes:

1. Let's officially vote on the number of rounds that will be done here. No reason this shouldn't be decided up front. If you haven't already, please respond to say whether you want 12 rounds, 14 rounds, or some other even number. Please remember that a Ball Park will have to be one of your picks in this portion of the draft.
2. I will be here to monitor the draft. I can email or text you when it's your turn - just send me your contact details. Also, I can make a pick by proxy for you (if necessary at any point) if you give me a name (or names) in advance of when it is your turn if you think you won't be available when it's your turn.
3. We do still have to wait for a couple of 90s league finals to finish to know the exact draft order.
