BosoxListA Draft Order and Keepers

Filed under: Uncategorized — drbob00 @ 12:51 am

Heya,

So here’s the proposed mechanism for determining draft order for the BosoxListA Draft this year. Thanks to Mike Webb for coming up with the bulk of the idea.

1) Each manager needs to respond to this post with a number in the range [100 to 700] (eg: 499), Their team name and their keeper player.
2) Once numbers are in, we will pick a suitable URL for a public news piece. I will cut an paste this (with URL first) into a text editor and the number a manager chooses will correspond to a word in the news piece. Draft order will be ANSI alphabetical order of the word matching the number you chose. I will post draft order, keepers and the reference document used here.
3) New Managers will be able to select a keeper in reverse order (later draft picks choose keepers first).

Sean.

Keeper lists so far are:
#
team: The Variteknical Writers
keeper: Albert Pujol
number: 191
#
team: Left Coast Green
keeper: Manny Ramirez
number: 314

team: Sydney WhiteSox
