==========================================================CBL RULEBOOK - Feb 2020 edition
Rolz.org dice room used for drafts
|Managers may trade draft picks for the next free agent draft only. As soon as the free agent draft begins, picks for the subsequent draft may be traded. A manager may trade as many of his draft picks as he wishes, but must have at least six draft picks at all times, two of which must be in the fourth round or earlier.|
|A's trade A's #3 to Icons for AJ Pollock|
Splash sends Chris Martin and Aroldis Chapman to Ungulates for Larks #2, Cubs #4, and Jon Gray
Ponies trade Touki Toussant to the Splash for Martin Maldonado
- lefty catcher Chance Sisco available. He has 328 cbl at bats
available and while he hit lefties better we can expect that SOM will
alter the card. Lamanna projects 43 on base vs RHP. We have
myriad needs but mostly need to bring in non-4 OFs who can hit righties.|
Now that the actual numbers are known I see that Sisco has 11 hits and 33 walks on his card to go with 3♦ shots.
Ungulates: JP Crawford is a young SS-1 with a good even card. Brock Holt is a backwards LHB 3b-3. Future talent includes Franklin Barreto, Scott Kingery, Justin Verlander, Looking for pitching, CF vs RHP, 3B vs RHP, 1B-vs LHP, picks.
First pick of the draft is up for grabs for the right package
Nelson Cruz is available
All other position players except Bicchette, Conforto, and Narvaez are available
Looking for draft picks, relievers, first base, and outfield
SPLASH - taking the Splash through a proper rebuild. Players that may be of interest are Mike Clevinger, Joaqim Soria, Aaron Hicks, and Jeff McNeil. Use the Chapman and Maldonado deals as the model for any offers
Draftlist 1.0 is complete
My scouting for the upcoming draft is pretty much complete. Once Lamanna releases his card ratings I will likely change the slotting for a number of players.
But I think I have enough info to comment on my current list.
NOT ENOUGH 1st round talent
Since I almost never draft relief pitching in round 1 my count of legit 1st rounders comes to about 11. The Mitts draft 18th in round 1 so may not get one of those 11 guys. I'd make it 50-50 that one of them can fall that far.
I have no catchers listed as surefire 1st rounders. And my list has two infielders worthy of that grade. There are three among my outfielder/1bmen who likely go in round 1. I count three SPs and one SR among the 1st round talent.
ASSESSING Mitt draft needs
The list is endless. Let's do it the other way - positions not needing fortification: 2B (thank you Lemahieu) and C ( C.Vazquez/Sisco ). We might trade Sisco but then would need to spend a late pick on a backup catcher. Everywhere else needs help. If we give RF to Canha (kills lefties, survives righties) and Jacoby Jones gets half of the CF gig (due to AB shortage) then we must get a fulltime LFer and p/t cfer.
We'll be looking for a fulltimer at 1b and someone to share SS with Jon Berti.
Right now Bregman (only hit lefties in 2020) and Justin Turner would make a great r/r platoon at 3B but it might work best to use Turner and his 914 OPS against righties as the DH. That would marginalize poor fielding Eddie Rosario (OPS 881 vs RHP) who otherwise should DH vs righthanders.
The team needs a lot in the way of starting and relief pitching. My best guess is that if all the legit 1st rounders are gone by pick 18 then we'll take the best pitcher capable of starting at that time.

From CALL TO THE PEN
On Thursday morning the email inbox had the spreadsheet from Lamanna for me.
After some reformatting I looked to see how the Mitts came out.
Eddie Rosario who'll likely be mostly a DH vs RHP got clutch ratings of +11 vs LHP and +10 vs R. Guess who'll be doing most of the clutch pinch-hitting.
Chance Sisco was fixed from a backwards lefty who never faces lefties to a hard righty. His 11 hits + 33 walks (and 3 diam shots) are pretty darn good vs RHP.
He remains on the trade block.
No other surprises leapt out.
