PINK Position Probabilities (Preseason)

Minor League Edition

Welcome to the first edition of PINK!

After a long and tumultuous courting period it is time to spread it open and see who has the best chance of getting to the uncharted territory of Minor League PINK.

The minor league was introduced this offseason with a lot of newbies, some long lost owners, and a couple of main leaguers willing to lead the charge.  The 24 owners were split into two conferences: Promising Prospects and Rising Rookies.  Certain owners will eventually be crowned with a total of twelve playoff teams including six division winners, two conference champions, and one inaugural minor league champion.  However, there can be only one PINK.  It is the most infamous award in RW as PINK truly stands alone.

Not even SMAK knows what the future of this league holds.  Yeah, Bern, I said it.

After the initial auction draft concluded we were tasked with an optional survey, opened by Blake, to rank teams within their conference.  19 of the 24 minor leaguers took part in this survey which gives us a pretty good jumping off point for public opinion.  The thing is – I don’t give a shit about public opinion.  It is my opinion that matters!

This week I will be looking at the Preseason PINK Position Probabilities.  (I like alliteration.)

Promising Prospects

Edinburgh Galacticos – Unfortunately for Pzo his team colors already show up as pink.  In Scotland, the color pink on a football team is homage to some Earl.  In America, the phrase for a pink logo is, “The writing is on the wall, Bitch”.  After spending nearly 20% of his auction budget on a TE and DE with more back problems than a porn star, Paul backed it up with more than one-third of his players being rookies.  I don’t think I need to tell him the probability of all 16 rookies panning out – ok maybe I do….

Bottom Line: Your future is not mortgaged, but season one looks bleak.

Valhalla Viktors – This one pains me as Garrett seems like a pretty good guy.  Oh whats that?  He’s the Vikings fan?  Oh shit.  Well fuck him then – this is where he belongs.  Like Minnesota, Garrett blew his wad early.  He found himself spending nearly 70% of his budget on 5 players.  This could work out for him as they are all excellent players, but like “The Land of 10,000 Lakes” the depth is lacking.  A week 4 matchup in Scotland against Edinburgh may give us an early look at the Urine conference front runner for PINK.

Bottom Line: You’ll need some “Luck”.

Rising Rookies

Mohawk Ridge Marauders – Justin ended up with a pretty good team – you know, if this was 2014.  I am still not sure what the Jersey Sandman’s strategy at the auction was.  I’m not even sure he knows what his strategy was.  Picture this: The scene fades in on opening day of the auction with Justin at his computer.  On the screen an attractive female is dressed in all white.  Justin’s hands are already sticky.  He is breathing heavy.  She is showing him exactly how to put honey into the mason jars.  One of the Matts just bumped up the price on a player and Justin’s fingers, stuck together, typed $89 instead of $9.  Sold! Justin’s team will now feel the sting of defeat.  

Bottom Line: Did he purposely buy players with a last name that rhymes with ‘Bee’?  Gurley, Gronkowski, Kelce, Keuchly, Ogletree, WTF?



Remember ladies and germs, this is just the Preseason PINK Position Probabilities.  The teams on my list will certainly grow!

Awesome!  The rare article that you don't want your team highlighted in. I love that you are getting started with it before the season starts! 

I will say I think there are a few more contenders for PINK that aren't listed here...

Yea, I was also wondering why you didn't list the Pigskins.

Otherwise, great article Ghoji.

I like this stuff.  I didn't follow the auction that thoroughly, and haven't examined the rosters.  Then when the auction was over, I pretty much heard 24 owners stating that they are "Playoff bound".  I love reading an article that comes right out of the gate, guaranteeing 3 teams that will no longer be "Playoff Bound".  Good job Ghoji, and way to shed some Pink light on the situation.   excited dance

Nice read, Ghoji. Some of these teams have waiver wire fodder in their starting lineups but sometimes you can luck your way to a win with a big week from your 3rd CB or the like. Interesting to see if anyone goes 0-16.

Glad I am not on the list. Equally glad I meet Justin in week 1. Too bad he isn't in my division. Can't win em all I guess.

What happens when I beat you then? Laughing

You know I haven't had any good offers for my 1st round pick. I mean, c'mon, lock 1.01?! You guys are boring.

Glad the articles for the minor league are coming together. I haven't had a real chance to go through and look at the rosters, so the Cliffs Notes versions being presented in the articles are helpful.

If you were confident that you would beat me you would have switched picks instead of hawking it like you were a carney worker...

Why would I swap picks if everyone thinks I'll be in last place? Can't sell my pick for less than market value my friend.

You can't have it both way, my friend. Either belive you are going to beat me and do well or embrace the pink.

Great stuff! Although I do think Mohawk will surprise somewhat. I see two, maybe three teams that could finish behind Justin.

I love it, good work Ghoji.

I suppose being favourite for Pink at this stage means the only way is up.

Ow and I think I was compatible with Ghoji on the stat of the day the other day, we have more players in common than anyone else - so if I go down your coming with me! cheers

Sucks to lose with a match-up with a top 4 score, but Spartans had a great week well done John.

Mind you it isn't getting any easier I just faced 2nd top points scorer and this next week I have the week top points scorer in PP. Eurghh.

Could easily go 0-2 and be a top 3 or 4 points scorer.
