TTO Scoresheet Podcast

A Mock Supplemental Draft

by Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss


In Scoresheet baseball, the first supplemental draft is a time when the dreams of spring training are dashed against the rocks of designated for assignment statuses and hamstring strains. For all but the most active/desperate traders, this is your first chance to reshape your team, if even slightly, to cover up for some of the inevitable strains against your depth chart.

To help prepare you for the upcoming draft, we podcasted what may be the first-ever mock Scoresheet supplemental draft, a feat for which we are duly proud and ashamed. In order to determine who was eligible for the draft, we randomly selected 25 public continuing Scoresheet leagues, both American and National format, and found whether the players were available in that league. Players who were available in 60 percent or more of these index leagues were listed as available.

Obviously, when drafting in all your supplemental rounds, your individual choices will probably be swayed much more by the needs of your team than by the best overall value, so these mock rankings should definitely be taken with shakers of salt (and should probably be accompanied by listening to the podcast, in order to best understand our reasoning for each draft choice). Our best generic advice is to take stock of your depth, and plan a month out, considering the ramifications of further attrition, particularly in your infield and your starting rotation. With all of those caveats, here's one potential way that your supplemental draft can play out:
