    2019 Draft Date Thread

    We need to pick a date.

    I've updated the spreadsheet again to reflect the available dates. We really, really should be done WELL before opening day. I think perhaps either the 21st or 23rd would be ideal.

    Apparently there are games in Japan on 3/20 and 3/21. WTF MLB. We gotta figure out how to deal with that. We could just ignore them. CBS' default option is to ignore the games, but we can choose to include them and draft after. I'm not clear what will happen if we do that.

    I feel strongly that the games in Japan should count for 1st week play. It would be unfair to owners of those players if their stats did not count. What is preventing us from drafting in early March?

    I put red on my bad dates, some of which *maybe* I could work around in the beginning dates, but I'll be in Cabo San Lucas.

    Any weekday after 7pm is ok for me. Weekend evenings are fine as well. The earliest date the better. We don't want to run into the mL draft issues that plagued our league so horribly last season.

    The mL draft, for one, since everyone wants to have it before the ML draft. There's also the idea that we shouldn't draft until spring training is well underway so we know who's making opening day rosters, which position battles are settled and who are the surprise breakout candidates.

    Filled mine. So far, 18 and 25 are the only 2 green only days. It would be great if 18th worked, to get this done before the Japan games.

    How can we have the mL draft before the ML draft when mL players are eligible to be drafted in the ML draft?

    I don't agree with it either, but there are some who want it done that way. Either way, the second issue is of more concern to me.

    I filled my dates in and I am fine with whatever we do - sooner the better.

    I filled mine out but don't worry if the draft is on one of my red dates. Its a free fun league and I am willing to roll the dice with whatever the draft robot chooses for me.
