This year’s 2 Early Mock drafts will be run on Fantrax starting October 1st. They are slow drafts with 4-hour clocks that pause overnight. This year, we will be running them with TGFBI roster requirements, which are 30-man 2-catcher rosters with seven reserves. There are no specific requirements to join a mock, however, priority will be given to industry writers/podcasters and participants must be willing to commit to not autodrafting as that hurts the integrity of the mocks. If you would like to be a part of the 2021 2 Early Mock Drafts, please click this link and fill out the form.
