2017 Lottery Draft

2017 TML Rookie Draft - Noon EST, Saturday, February 25th

Below are the USA Today Stock assignments for the 2017 Lottery Draft and tie-breakers. We will use the two digits to the right of the decimal spot in each key "Major Indexes" as published in the USA Today this coming Tuesday 10/18. The team with the lowest number will be awarded the #1 pick, scaled to the highest number getting the #3 pick in the 1st Round. (Tie-breaker stock assignments are listed below for 10/19 & 10/20, if needed.)
Team # Stock Index 10/18 Traffic -2- Dow Jones Industrial 40 Danny Way -3- Standard & Poor’s 500 50 Oklahoma -4- NASDAQ Composite 82 Mudville -1- Russell 2000 Index 14
There were four regular season ties this year. The first tie was for the third Lottery Draft, thus all four teams will be included. For the remaining rounds, Oklahoma (OS) will draft ahead of Mudville (M9), due to head-to-head record (M9 7-3). The second tie was also easily resolved between Murderous (MX) and Walla Walla (WW), using head-to-head (WW 3-1), meaning that MX will draft ahead of WW for all rounds. The third tie is between Vienna (VS) and Duluth (DT), who were 5-5 head-to-head, was resolved using ROAD records VS .475, DT .450), thus VS drafts ahead of DT in all rounds. The remaining tie is between Amsterdam (AY) and Vanderlyle (VC), who were 2-2 head-to-head and had the *same* ROAD record (.450). Thus, the DOW JONES tie-breaker will be used. AY has been designated EVEN and VC ODD. The two digits to the right of the decimal point in the DOW JONES close tomorrow (Oct. 18) will determine EVEN/ODD (where, 00 = EVEN). DOW JONES (40) = EVEN
