All,

Sunday, February 16th, the National Fantasy Baseball Championship (NFBC) is having a 50 round draft champions league. All 50 rounds (750 picks) will be drafted Sunday night beginning at 6pm. This is a 15 team league, and the draft order has been determined (I’m picking 4th).

Since you might be getting bored of seeing unrealistic mock draft results or reading stale rankings in a magazine, I thought it might interest you if I created a Google Doc that tracked all 750 picks. I will update the Google Doc during the draft (probably twice a round). This is a deep, deep league, so it could help in identifying players you might want to consider in your AL only & NL only leagues.

The league participants are literally a “who’s who” in the high stakes fantasy baseball community. These are guys who put up real money and have experienced massive success with total prize money won easily in the 6 figures.

Here are the contestants along with information I was able to quickly piece together about some of them:
Pick 1 Team Hughes
Pick 2 Team Vogel - Finished 15th overall in the 2013 Draft Champions event (1,845 entrants)
Pick 3 Go Crazy Folks
Pick 4 Gordon Gekko - Won 10 of 30 Draft Champions league titles in 2013
Pick 5 Hulk Smash - Finished 4th overall in 2013 Auction Championship
Pick 6 ikenbaseball
Pick 7 Voice of Reason - Won 5 Draft Champions league titles in 2013
Pick 8 Midfield Thinkers
Pick 9 Team Strickler - 2013 NFBC XII Main Event winner & 2009 NFFC Primetime overall champion
Pick 10 MORONS - Won 2 NFBC league titles in 2013
Pick 11 Christie Carnage
Pick 12 Stinking Badgers - Won NFBC 2013 Online Championship league in 2013
Pick 13 Draft is Top Secret - Two time national auction champion & Finished 2nd in the 2013 NFBC Main Event
Pick 14 South Park Cows - 2nd place finish in the 4th grade race around the school
Pick 15 Mudster

Comments are welcome. See you at 6pm on Sunday! Posted Image

pretty fascinating picks in the 1st round. I may have to re evaluate Kipnis as he went 8th overall. Strange pick to my way of thinking.

Our boy -Cutch in the 1st and Choo in the 2nd, Fernandez in the 3rd

Have to change my idea on Gyoroko also. Been using him as my late round 2nd baseman and he goes with thw 10th pick in the 6th round. Adams goes the pick before him

So surprised he spilled his drink on his cheat sheet and thought Jay Bruce was a good 2nd round pick.

Thanks for posting this!

Can you post the actual owners names as well if possible? Interested to see if any of these owners are guys who have fantasy websites/articles/books etc.

Miggy shouldn't be available at 3 at all. The person drafting in that league should leave it!
