#PackADailyCircus First Draft, Rookie Mistakes

Greetings, everyone! Sorry for the absolute lack of posting and updating this week. Let's get started with a few things:

First of all, we ran our first pre-season draft! The new Excel spreadsheet is working just as it should, and that is GREAT news for future drafts.

Secondly, I made a mistake and included Mike Mussina in the draft and he was already claimed during the returning manager's initial picks. So, we got that squared away with little issue, so far as I can tell. It was a rookie mistake.

Thirdly, AFTER the draft was over and I had assigned players to teams, I realized I had ALSO mistakenly included Reggie Jackson in the draft list. Dayf already has him and then it turned out that he ended up with him in the draft. Another rookie mistake. Because of the way I have to handle things until OOTP16 comes out, there was no good or easy way to handle this one. All I can do is apologize and move forward.

Fourthly, we had three (3) players left over that did not get selected: BJ Boyd, Jordy Mercer, and Pedro Feliciano. They will be put into the next pre-season draft.

So... here is the list of picks BEFORE the draft:

Here are the results of the draft:

Congrats to all the managers who participated! The next draft will be heading out soon!


  1. lol so technically I had the no. 3 pick in the draft and I didn't get anyone
    don't care because you're going to open a pack of 1990 Upper Deck out of a repack box and pull a Reggie auto and it will be all MINE

  2. Haha, or a slew of Bips and Alomars, whichever comes first...
