It’s the offseason and we miss baseball. To help us forget that four months separate us and the peak of draft season, 13 members of the Pitcher List staff gathered to take part in a “way-too-early” mock draft, which concluded just last week. Here are the results:
A few notes:
- 23 round with a 5×5 roto league in mind
- Position slots: C (Gray), 1B (Brown), 2B (Green), SS (Black), 3B (Light Blue), OF, OF, OF (Orange), UTIL, UTIL (Dark Teal) | SP SP SP (Red) RP RP RP (Dark Blue) P P P | 4 Bench Spots
- 13 teams with no strict draft clock as we drafted over two weeks
Through the next few weeks, each writer will have an article detailing their thoughts behind each pick of this 23 round draft and we’ll be updating this article to link to each piece as they are released:
- Nick Pollack’s Picks
- Steve Honovich’s Picks
- Dave Cherman’s Picks
- Ben Pernick’s Picks
- Alasdair Thornton’s Picks
- Nic Gardiner’s Picks
- Kyle Bishop’s Picks
- Ben Palmer’s Picks
- Andrew Todd-Smith’s Picks
- Rick Graham’s Picks
Let’s dive into it in the comments below and check out the thread on Reddit’s /r/Fantasybaseball to dive in further.
Can you break down the color coordination? I couldn’t find it. Thanks
I did the same thing but I am not matching up like yours at all.
Just added the colors to the notes in the positions listed to help.
I really like your timing on this. It is funny that drafts fall into two buckets, way too early… and just mock drafts. The end of the current season seems like a valuable time for analysis despite the trend to take a huge break and re-evaluate. It is weird to me that people don’t really make top 100 lists at the end of the season – they would rather speculate what will happen next year than analyze what actually just happened. Long story short, I am looking for some rankings going into next year and the pickings are slim. I can’t imagine this being that much different in 3 months.
