Looks like Baltimore owns Cleveland's pick and Kansas City owns Detroit's.

We will take it! Although with this draft class it looks more like winning the 50/50 consolation at the Crab Feast than taking home the Mega Millions. Looks like we will have a young catcher to develop unless someone makes an offer for the pick (future picks would be ideal)...

I now have Cleveland's first and the 17th pick overall. I also hold 4 from KC and 5 Mine. After Merriman it is dice roll who will be at 4 and 5. I could possibly have 4 good players or 1 good and 3 busts.

This draft stuff still confuses the heck out of me. My team finished with the 8th overall worst record in both leagues combined. How am I picking 9th?? Shouldn't my team be picking 8th at the very least?? In order for me to pick 9th means I am switching with someone in the 9th place overall. Doesnt make sense to me UNLESS it is the 4 worst records in each league, that's the only way I can see this making sense.

The lottery will be in place for the 2002 draft. The lottery, involving all non-playoff teams, will decide the first three spots in the draft...this carries through for all 5 rounds. Picks 4 to 16 are determined as normal with the worst remaining record drafting 4th all the way to the World Series winner picking last.

The lottery numbers are based on the final AL and NL standings with the two last place teams receiving the same number of chances and so on...

AL8th...000 to 199
NL8th...200 to 399
AL7th...400 to 524
NL7th...525 to 649
AL6th...650 to 724
NL6th...725 to 799
AL5th...800 to 849
NL5th...850 to 899
AL4th...900 to 924
NL4th...925 to 949
AL3rd...950 to 974
NL3rd...975 to 999

If two teams in the same league tie for a spot with identical records, the tie is broken by the team with most number of wins in September. If it's still tied, work back into August one day at a time until more wins are determined.

Most of the daily lotteries have 2 games per day, the Minnesota Daily 3 plays one per day and fits the CPBL well... ... winning_s/

The winning lottery number will be determined by the player that suffered the last regular season injury. If multiple players are injured the same day, the longer days injured is the determining factor. If still unbroken, it will be the older player. That player's birthday (Month and Day) will set the anchor date. Refer to the Minnesota Daily 3 for the last drawing on that player's birthday for the winning lottery number. Using the anchor date, go back one day to determine the winning number for the #2 slot. If the same team wins both the 1st and 2nd, continue working back daily until the 2nd slot is determined. Continue working back a day until #3 is decided.

So the best chance of winning goes to the worst team in each league? Or just by overall record? If for example the 3 worst teams are all from the AL do they get the best chances of winning? Or does it flip between the worst teams from each league, regardless of overall record?

paulcaraccio - 6-22-2015 at 10:41 PM
it's not based on record, but position in the standings.

both last place teams get 20%
both 7th place teams get 12.5%
both 6th place teams get 7.5%
both 5th place teams get 5%
all 3rd and 4th place teams get 2.5%

makes sense to me because without interleague play, we can't really say a 40-win NL team is worse than a 50-win AL team, as an example. added bonus, we'll have fewer teams to tank-battle :)

Basically the lottery is for the first 3 slots in the draft from a pool of all the non-playoff teams, so it is possible to slide back up to 3 slots if teams leapfrog you by winning one of the top 3 slots...

Thanks, Beanballs!

Got it now. So record doesn't play a role but rather bottom 4 spots in each league are the ones who enter the lottery.

That's why I've been confused, because this is the second time I've had the 8th worse record out of both leagues combined but ended up drafting 9th. I just didn't understand how I ended up one spot behind the draft eligible teams if I should be a part of the lottery. Now I know!
