I don't expect to be full by the 4th but it might happen. I'll put you down and take 1 extra person on a waitlist in case the timeframe doesn't end up working for you.

Im IN, WOW rough choices for round 1, eh?

I would vote NO for alignment by Salary, it would restrict bench/back up players!  Instead, lets say maybe put some Limits on players, so we can have just 1 random alignment?

Seriously, without SOME player LIMITS, this league might get out of hand, rather quickly?  This is NOT your average pick 6 league!  With the 20 season ranges, there was a limit on the number of players we could have, limiting the salary & NOT needing a cap...  Maybe we DO need a salary cap, just this once?  Since we have ALL players available, some owners (Im NOT pointing any fingers) might take advantage & have a 400-500M team (is that possible?) while others are fighting over 200K players, like MAD!?  Just to get into the RIGHT division?  I agree, too much extreme difference in salaries is not good, why not just narrow the difference?

My suggestions?

1)  Limit NON-starting Position players (after first 8, no DH remember) to 1M max - ie., NO Mickey Mantle '55 (9.4M salary) as backup OF, for his A/A rating, cuz you already have Ruth, Williams & Duffy as starters?
2)  SP, no more than (5) over 200 IP - ie., 6 SP with 300 IP, 1800 IP total - JUST for SP - is ridiculous?  & a RP with over 200 IP is a WASTE, right?
3)  Maybe limits like 2000 IP & 7000 AB, which are more than enough?  These are NOT usually limiting numbers, they just make sense?

Any more suggerstions?  I dont want this league to turn this into a JOKE, cuz it is a GOOD concept, BUT we do need Limits, to avoid having backup players averaging 8M/player, or 3000 IP, for a 162 game season?  Example, when arranging by Salary, once you are over the TOP - why not GO FOR IT - JUST to be a PAIN?  Do division alignments really make that much difference, if all is basically equal?

Why make this league a Joke & KILL the league theme FOREVER, like the Waiver Wire by Wins league?

I can wait to start sending in picks until July 9, its OK with me!  The extra wait gives me more time to figure out a drafting strategy, cuz Im thinkin that the usual Pick 6 plan wont work, when drafting from the WHOLE MLB universe?  Plus, Im sure the 4th is busy for most people & Id hate to take a break in the MIDDLE of the draft!

FYI - This league WILL fill up fast!  We will be full by this Sunday night for sure, cuz BHeid408 runs a GREAT Pick 6 league!  {Is that kissing up too much? Sorry. ha ha!}

I'll get in as well.

I'm pretty awesome at being bad at pick 6 leagues, so for everyone's benefit, I'll play.

Not sure your concerns are warranted good_beef.
I suspect most of the top tiered players will get picked in round 1 and if not then round 2. In pick 6 this means they more than likely will get blacklisted. Sure, a few will sneak through like usual pick 6 leagues but which ones? Ruth? Bonds? Joss? That is the chance with this league. Are the top Salaried players always the best performing? No!
Does aligning by salary change tthe drafting strategy? I'm not sure. Maybe if you have 3 quality outfielders or 4 top starting pitchers you continue to pick those types of players just to keep others from getting them, but you can use that same strategy in a normal 20 season limit pick 6 league.

I love (and hate) pick 6 leagues. I am in.
7/1/2013 9:53 AM
I'm in. The blacklist part of the league solves the concern above; no one will likely have Mantle (rd 1 blacklist) let alone have him as a back up.

IF - by some Miracle - you get Ty, Ted, Babe & Mickey in round 1 - Mickey Mantle is your Backup OF

And the problem with that is.......
