Draft Data

We drafted 221 players at the 2016 NASOMA Draft. Of those, 189 were taken in the regular draft; 32 more were selected in the Lightning Round. We drafted 111 pitchers, 97 hitters, and 13 uncarded players.

And there was a "first" for the NASOMA Draft (as far as I can remember): There were ZERO passes - not even by the Mavs who ALWAYS pass their last 2 picks. It was close to not happening, though. The Bees were all set to pass on their last 2 picks before trading them away. And the Goofs had to be talked into using their last 2 picks. They, naturally, ended up keeping one of them.

The earliest a player was drafted and then cut was #146 (Phil Gosselin by the Warpigs). The latest a player was drafted and then kept was #205 (Carlos Ruiz by the Buckeyes).

Of the 32 players taken in the Lightning Round, 4 made it onto the final rosters (1 each by the DVs, FFTs, Buckeyes, and Tweeners).

And maybe because there were 3 weeks of games between roster cut-down and the draft, there were 23 protected players who were later cut post-draft. In fact, every team except the Zaps, Wahoos, Goofs, and Inmates cut at least 1 player who had been protected pre-draft. The Fungoes, FFTs, Tweeners, and Sidewinders each cut three players they had protected.

Here are the numbers...
