Six Drafts Tournament - Franchise Edition
1st = $200, 2nd = $100.
 
The "Six Drafts" concept is becoming very popular.  It’s where 24 owners are divided into six groups of four and each group holds its own 4-person draft.  Each group of four owners will play in a division together and is drafting from its own unique subset of players.  These drafts run very quickly (3-4 rounds per day) and there’s enough talent for everybody to have a decent team.  The Six Drafts Winter Tournament drafted from specific seasons.  This edition of Six Drafts will be based on drafting players from a specific franchise.
 
Salary Cap: $100 Million
 
Round 1
There will be four leagues running simultaneously. That means there will be 24 different drafts (6 per league).  These 24 drafts represent the 24 MLB franchises in existence in 1969.  In other words, each division will consist of 4 owners who drafted players from one specific franchise. 
 
Owners may sign up for up to four teams... no more than one team per league, and also make sure not to select teams in the same division.  For example, if you select STL (league 1), you cannot select CIN (league 2), PIT (league 3) or CHI Cubs (league 4) since all four of these teams will play in the NL Central in round 2.  But you could select PHI (league 2, NL East), KC (league 3, AL Central) and TEX (league 4, AL West).

I grouped the teams into the four leagues, based on geographical location and cumulative W-L% in the years 1969-2013.  So League #1 has the franchises with the highest winning% (Atl, StL, LAD, NYY, ChW, Oak).  League #4 has the "worst" franchises (Mon/Wash, ChC, SD, Cle, Mil, Tex).  Milwaukee will be considered an A.L. team.
 

Here is how the teams will be aligned.  If bold, then that franchise is full.

Division League #1 League #2 League #3 League #4
------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------
NL East Atlanta Philadelphia NY Mets Montreal*
NL Central St. Louis Cincinnati Pittsburgh Chi Cubs
NL West LA Dodgers San Francisco Houston San Diego
AL East NY Yankees Boston Baltimore Cleveland
AL Central Chi W.Sox Detroit Kansas City Milwaukee*
AL West Oakland LA Angels Minnesota Texas*

* Milwaukee includes Seattle Pilots (1969).  Texas includes Washington Senators (1969-71).  Montreal includes Washington Nationals (2005-13).


Round 2
Each division winner from round 1 will advance to round 2.  That's 24 teams.  The round 2 alignment is based on the above chart. (i.e., NYY, Bos, Bal, Cle will play in the AL East).

Prizes:
sgsmith is taking some time off from WIS and has generously donated $170 of his credits.  I am also adding $80.  I anticipate admin will add $50 for the five leagues.  The World Series champ of round 2 wins $200. The runner-up gets $100.
 
Drafting Rules
Once four people sign up for a franchise, I will post the draft order and then they can start drafting.  The draft will be a 26-round draft (including a ballpark used by your franchise).  If there are fewer than 4 ballpark choices, then each ballpark can be used at most twice.  If there is only one ballpark (i.e., Fenway Park), well there's your 26th round pick.  Renamed parks with the same dimensions count as a single park.  Once a player is selected, all versions of that player are off the board for the other three drafters.  The drafter does NOT have to specify which season of the drafted player he is using until he submits his roster.

The draft order will be determined randomly and it will be a snake draft (1-2-3-4, 4-3-2-1, 1-2-3-4, etc.). 
The drafts won’t be on a timed schedule initially, but if a draft is running very slowly, I reserve the right to come in and set up a schedule to keep things moving (we should get at least 3 rounds done per day).

Want to make sure I got this...

Using Pete Rose as an example.
1. I cannot use any of his seasons before 1969?
2. If I draft him as a Reds player I can't use one of his Phillies seasons, it must be a Reds season?
3. If I draft him as a Reds player can someone else draft him as a Phillies player?
2/16/2014 9:31 PM
1. Correct
2. Correct
3. Yes
