I don't think many people factor bullpen heavily in their voting is my concern.

Well it seems to be easily the 3rd factor we look at...which makes sense but I have been saying for awhile, a bullpen in the playoff is very important and a key but it's still a 3rd. I guess increasing the number of bullpen guys could help. 5 is good but...

Problem is most of the guys we will be taking are closer or setup guys so that really doesn't help us.

Absolutely agree but I don't think many pay much attention to the 5th starter, whatever y'all wanna do i'm fine with.

Remember when we used to use a 5 man pen, we had 1 closer, 2 set up guys and 2 long relief. Maybe that's the answer?

Maybe we should draft 10 starters and 10 relievers

Yeah just need certain qualifications for each.

Closer - over x number of saves
Long relief - over x number of innings, under x number of saves

How about a super MLB draft where pitchers can only be used once in the series and also have a limits restrictions on the hitters.

So we can do say 5 game series. We draft 5 starters and 6 RPs. The 5 starters each have to start a game, but the 10 RP's you can use two per game of which you'll have to dictate which games they will play.

We draft 18 batters. The restriction for this will be that you cannot use a player more than 3 times in the series. You can set your lineup to opposing the pitching you may be facing for each of the 5 games.

The only requirement pre-voting rounds is that each GM has to set their pitching in advance, which cannot be changed. This way the opposing GM can alter their lineups based on the opposing pitching.

Game 1:
Lineup - standard
SP - Walter Johnson
RP - Randy Myers
- Mariano Rivera

Game 2:
Lineup -
SP - Nolan Ryan
RP - Joe Nathan
- Billy Wagner


So in total you'd draft 18 Hitters and 15 Pitchers. 5 Game series. Pitchers can only be used once in the series. Hitters, no more than 3 times. Think this would add a new component to the draft where we actually have to use matchups and can have an impact on how our team might play against a particular opponent. There's new strategy that comes in to play for drafting and also a strategy for game planning against your particular opponent. Players with positional flexibility come into play.

I dunno, just spitballing.

GOd you guys love your old geezer pitchers

Valuing previous generations isn't a bad thing.

I mean there's lots of arguments about why a Tesla is a significantly better car overall than a 67 Shelby. But damn if I'm not taking the Shelby every damn time.

I liked the last idea proposed in the mock draft chat thread. It was NFL I believe.
