CPBL Lottery

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...

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?

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 :)

This is vague. Does the tie break winner get the higher draft spot? IE 6th place over 7th or the lower spot 7th instad of 6th? why not use head to head as first tie break since the standing in the League or really division determines your lottery result. I would use wins in september if the lottery was 1st worse record etc. Because multiple tus of 3 or more are a thing.

The tie breaker winner (the team with a better September record) gets more ping pong balls.

We used this tiebreaker because it is a hedge against tanking, that is if you are trying to win more than a team you tie with you get the better spot. We have played with owners that use extremely bad players in September to try to "not win"...
