    Default Dobber MLB wins pool 2017 (want to join?)

    I know it's early but since I've started reading baseball stuff I figured I would open this up now.

    As mentioned in last year's thread, I'm happy to run this again, but will probably need someone to provide updates in September as I'll likely be away.

    To confirm the general scoring, it's simply picking a team in turn until all teams are chosen. We only count wins and the pool winner is the one with the highest combined total.

    There was also a suggestion on last year's thread on changing the draft format, so it would be worth starting the discussion to look at options depending on how many will join. I know there's plenty of time to get this going but feel free to add your name and get this discussion going.

    In a few weeks hopefully we'll have an idea on numbers and what to do about the format. Perhaps with enough interest we could have two pools.

    Over to you...

    Interest so far (10)

    I'm in again. Have to make up for last year's mediocre totals.

    I can also probably do updates in Sept depending on how work goes through the summer.

    As for the format, I think it depends on how many people we have in the draft, that will dictate any kind of setup. We did have 8 guys in each of the A and B NHL wins pools this year (adding a second of two bottom teams) and I think that has worked decently well. So there is a lot of freedom to however we wish to make it work.

    Thanks for the interest so far.

    As for format, yeah the way the NHL one is done is a possibility, but ideally (for me, anyway), we don't have any duplicate teams. Of course, that's easier said than done given a lack of options. We may not know how many people are interested but we could start thinking of options in case of specific numbers. Also, if we know what would be ideal, we can let people know what we're aiming for.

    For those not in the pool last year, the main issue last year was the uneven snake-style draft, since we had 10 entries with 3 teams each. So, the team with the first draft slot had picks 1,20,21, compared to the last slot had picks 10,11 and 30.

    Anything that gives people an even number of teams owned would be ideal. That way a snake system works. The only two ways to divide 30 by an even number though, is 2 or 6 (meaning 15 or 5 members picking teams). We could also run with 7 entrants and just cut down to 28 MLB teams, or run with the 8 and add the two.
    If we do go with 10 again, then I think flipping the order of the last round would make up for the differences. So first pick would have 1, 20 and 30. Last would have 10, 11, 21. Middles would be 5, 16, 26, and 6, 15, 25. Not a perfect system, but it could work.

    Good suggestions. The last round flip could work if 10 entrants - definitely better than what we did last year. Personally, in terms of number of teams and pool size, I like having 10 entrants. If not, then 7/8 would work. I think 6 is too small and 15 too much since we'd only have 2 teams each.

    Depending on activity I'll periodically refresh this thread to increase exposure, as I'm sure many aren't thinking about baseball now. Given that I opened it up late last year and we still got 10, I wouldn't be surprised getting even more interest.

    Sounds good to me. Thanks for bringing it up early though to get it sorted out!

    With football finishing and baseball spring training not far away, I figured this would be a good time to refresh this thread.
