    Enjoy The Ride Mogul using Basebal Mogul - Diamond Edition.

    1. Using the most current version of Baseball Mogul - Diamond. Released 2015.
    2. Plan on starting with a Fantasy Draft after a sufficient amount of teams are claimed.
    3. Start year is 1985 - no commish mode - no sim ahead - no peak or overall ratings to assist you in your decisions.
    4. Plan on simming twice a week: Monday and Thursday nights after 6 pm Central.
    5. Sims will only consist of one week per simulation giving you better control of your team.
    6. Player positions cannot be changed manually or by playing out of position; they must start the game in the main position on their player cards.
    7. The AI can sub them in at various positions off the bench as necessary.
    8.. Cities and Expenses are equalized.
    9. Commish will NOT be an owner, however may caretake vacant team(s) when necessary.
    10. 2 Wild Card spots in each league - one game playoff for the last spot in the playoffs.

    WOULD ANTICIPATE STARTING THE FANTASY DRAFT ON MAY 27TH.

    Feel free to cuss and discuss. This will be quite a bit slower than usual (only 1 weeks in a sim - twice a week).
    Hoping to attract a crowd looking for a more manageable game.

    The fantasy draft will likely take a month, so by the time play actually starts, it could be mid-July to August. More time to iron out game bugs and such.
    We will be drafting the 25 man roster, the AI will then finish the remainder.
    First come first served as far as teams - although the name really won't matter, since players will be drafted.
    Snake draft will be used (reverse order every round).
    So the first to sign up can choose to have the first pick in the draft, or choose a particular team. The initial first round will be random, so picking a particular team will not guarantee you the #1 draft pick - it's up to you.

    By not having the peak and overall ratings, you will have to decide what type of player your team needs at various positions. Value systems may change.

    Fantasy Draft:

    It appears to me, that the most expeditious way to handle a fantasy draft of this magnitude is to have each owner submit a list.

    1. There are 26 total teams.
    2. I need each owner to submit a list of their TOP 26 players they wish to draft in order.
    3. This will be enough to get us through the first round and a little into the second, since opinions will vary.
    4. Players will be assigned to teams in the order of the draft by whom is on the top of their lists (not taken).
    5. In the 2nd round, when we reach a team with no picks left or if they would duplicate a position, we will stop a request new lists of 26 from everyone... then proceed.
    6. THE AI WILL PICK FOR THE TEAMS NOT HAVING A HUMAN OWNER.

    So, it is possible for an individual to make it through this draft without having a copy of the game; just refer to the xls spreadsheet.

    I anticipate this draft taking the entire month of June and July.

    Tentatively we are looking at a start date around the first part of August.

    This give you a little break and plenty of time to acquire the new version of the game (as long as you are comfortable drafting from a spreadsheet).

    WHEN YOU DO GET THE GAME, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL SEND YOU THE FANTASY DRAFT FILE.


    June 1st 6 pm Central - Fantasy Draft Begins - all lists (your top 26).

    Getting ready to kickoff the rookie draft in the new league - currently we are at 10 owners - the AI will run the vacant teams.

    The rookie draft, 1st round, will be Monday, June 1.

    You still have time to choose a team and send in a draft list. You can even join late if you wish, but may miss getting some of your favorite players.

    Start year is 1985; here are a few of the details once again; hoping to see more of you join up - it should be fun and different!

    1. Using the most current version of Baseball Mogul - Diamond. Released 2015.
    2. Plan on starting with a Fantasy Draft after a sufficient amount of teams are claimed (rounds of actual draft will be limited - AI to finish).
    3. Start year is 1985 - no commish mode - no sim ahead - no peak or overall ratings to assist you in your decisions.
    4. Plan on simming twice a week: Monday and Thursday nights after 6 pm Central.
    5. Sims will only consist of one week per simulation giving you better control of your team.
    6. Player positions cannot be changed manually or by playing out of position; they must start the game in the main position on their player cards.
    7. The AI can sub them in at various positions off the bench as necessary.
    8.. Cities and Expenses are equalized.
    9. Commish will NOT be an owner, however may caretake vacant team(s) when necessary.
    10. 2 Wild Card spots in each league - one game playoff for the last spot in the playoffs.

    First come first served as far as teams - although the name really won't matter, since players will be drafted.
    Snake draft will be used (reverse order every round).
    If you sign up first, you can pick your team when you sign up.

    You can trade with AI teams also; in case of teams trying to trade for the same player, first posted deal wins - of course, this assumes the AI approves the deal.

    The draft can start early with no time limits. I will make sure the AI picks to keep it moving.

    Re: Enjoy The Ride Mogul using Basebal Mogul - Diamond Edition.

    Still plenty of teams available, you should check it out. It's gonna be a new experience, unlike any other league.

    Reminder -

    Trading opens Monday, July 6th, at 6:00 pm CENTRAL.

    You can deal with each other and with the AI teams.

    There are deals in the works already with AI teams. Seems to be quite a bit of negotiating involved.

    If there are duplicate deals for players off AI teams, the first deal posted that is accepted by the AI will be the deal taken.

    Don't let somebody else beat you to the punch.

    Right now, it looks many of the AI teams are favored, y'all have some work to do.

    Rookie pick made by AI teams already posted will become official at this same time, and the draft can proceed without time limits.

    Time limits on the draft go into affect on Monday, July 13th, 6:00 pm CENTRAL.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Lots of trade activity, but many open teams still available - please check the website.

    Predictions update:

    Updated Predictions:
    AL East
    Toronto
    Detroit
    Baltimore
    New York
    Boston

    AL Central
    Kansas City
    Milwaukee
    Chicago
    Cleveland
    Minnesota

    AL West
    Seattle
    Oakland
    Texas
    California

    NL East
    Atlanta
    New York
    Philadelphia
    Montreal

    NL Central
    Pittsburgh
    Cincinnati
    St. Louis
    Chicago

    NL West
    San Francisco
    San Diego
    Houston
    Los Angeles

    Seattle and Oakland could be the 2 best teams - and are in the same division.

    AL MVP - Dale Murphy, Ron Kittle (both of Cleveland)
    NL MVP - Kent Hrbek (Pit) Eddie Murray (Stl.)
    AL Cy Young - Fernando Valenzuela (Tor), Mario Soto (Det)
    NL Cy Young - Dave Steib (Atl) - many other lesser possibilities
    AL Rookie of the Year - John Kruk (Tex) - many other lesser possibilities
    NL Rookie of the Year - Joel Davis (SF) - many other lesser possibilities

    We are only a few weeks away - time for more deals and start finalizing your lineups and minor league systems. You can release unwanted players into free agency - some will cost - some may not.

    Remember the lineup restriction - players may only START at the main position they are listed for on their player card profile.

    SEASON OPENER MONDAY, AUGUST 3RD.
