SS Hughie Jennings (1893, $200,000)

How's *that* for gamesmanship! Take that, league!

Just kidding... I actually do want this version of Hughie...

I am going to go ahead and use my pick to block the great career of SS Tim Foli (1977, $235,490)
Surprised this wasn't 1st overall pick.

I was hoping Foli would get back to me with my double pick on the end... Didn't want to commit to too many non-200K players off the bat. 

I like the Jennings pick.  Very well played....

Thinking more about this draft, we're going to see some really interesting situations unfolding.  It's really easy to draft the "best" players early and then fill the roster with cheap 200K-300K players at the end (like in a typical draft).  But doing it in reverse is going to be a real challenge.  I may have my last three expensive players all set to draft, but if one gets picked in front of me, there isn't always a suitable replacement at the same salary level.  I can also see people drafting lesser salaried versions of great players (i.e., their second best seasons) a few rounds earlier, just to screw somebody who was hoping to draft their best season at the end.

This is going to be really fun.

1970 Roberto Pena - SS
$235,077

This guy came immediately to mind when I read the rules of this draft.  Plays all 4 IF positions with the worst defense being at 3B with B+/D.  I use him on almost all of my non-progressive teams up to and including $140M.
