Garbage

Post by kevin2105b » Fri May 17, 2019 8:37 pm

Can we turn off the completely garbage drafts for 2 decades setting in this league?

I agree. Very hard to rebuild with constantly lousy drafts.

Not going to lie, thought this post was going to be about my team making the playoffs, which I would have agreed with. But the drafts have been weak for a while except for a few strong prospects at the top of the draft. Happy I am not in rebuild anymore as it was so frustrating looking at some of these draft classes

I think this is an above-average draft. It lacks a true #1 elite player, but there are at least 15 players who have All-Star potential. I (CHA) am looking to add first rounders if anyone wants to trade.

I’d like to see the draft thru your eyes brother cuz this class is straight garbage. No young kids you can absolutely depend on. A handful of 16/17 yr olds who with a few bad conversion years are on the waiver wire.

And even when there are good prospects they turn out like this:

http://www.simdynasty.com/player.jsp?id ... rimps=imps Only gets better if I play him in the majors. (2-121 in the minors).

http://www.simdynasty.com/player.jsp?id ... rimps=imps Lovely 1-134 in the minors.

http://www.simdynasty.com/player.jsp?id ... rimps=imps 2-160 - both improves in the majors. (0-141 in the minors)

http://www.simdynasty.com/player.jsp?id ... rimps=imps Another 0-87 in the minors.

A combined 3-483 in the minors for four picks, two in the top three and two at 18.

But I'll be happy to take people's first rounders off of them :-)

Also looking to add first rounders...but also the problem is development and it seems like outside of two guys, most of my high picks the last decade or so have had slow development

In a variable dev league, no prospect can ever truly be counted on. I think this draft has a larger than average number of likely impact players.

"Impact players" is a relative term. If, year after year, we get crappy drafts, certainly SOMEONE will be "impactful". All things being equal, we're all pulling from the same garbage pool of talent. So, yes, there has to be a best of the worst.
