let's get that last spot filled tonight! i will start loading the available players lists w/ salaries tonight so you can start game-planning. we will run with 12 teams + AAA for the first season (1901), we will vote on whether to do AAA the second season based on how season one is going. there will be plenty of players to go around, but be ready to platoon at C and at 1B (surprised at IB). this will take some managing skills, but that's why we are doing it. plug and play is too easy sometimes.
draft order will be done by owner rating - lowest goes first - and it will be a snake draft (team w/ last pick in 1st round will get 1st pick in the 2nd). Once draft order is detirmined, i have zero problems with anyone who wants to trade order w/ anyone else. some like to go early, some late, some in between.... after this initial draft, it will be in order of previous year's standings (worst goes first) and will not be a snake draft.
this is a small list of owners, let's see if we can get the draft running before dspahlinger goes on vacation and maybe finish before the 9th. if it takes longer, so be it. there will be no "on the clock" picks until he returns (assuming we can't finish this week, and i doubt we will be able).
