Well, I got what I wanted... Top pick in "Better to Burn Out" and a top 2 pick in the "Federal League 1915 SP".  And a top 3 in the "199 Hits".  The rest doesn't matter much.
1/11/2013 2:48 PM
Wow - my bid of 97 for Federalist pitchers gets me the 10th pick. I did earn first pick of slap-hitting HoFers though...
1/11/2013 3:06 PM
I am a little disappointed in my bid positions.  Not feeling good about my future team!  :(

Flyingman, GREAT JOB!!  Can you set the draft threads up in a way that I can "favorite" them?  I can't seem to do that right now.  Thanks!

I'm not sure. I tried to put the draft categories in all caps so they would be easier to spot.

+1. Now if I could just figure out how to compile a team out of this...

I did not bid higher than that in any category. 

I might set a record for number of times hitting the REFRESH button today.
I'm glad I could make everyone's day.
1/11/2013 3:47 PM
And here is a table showing which drafft pick everybody has... Obviously, I paid a price for bidding so high to get Koufax and one of the top 2 Federal League stud pitchers.

Well, 2/25 of my roster is now complete. I _think_ I know what direction I'm going with the "Starts with Q" pick, but I'm going to hold off on that to see what my roster needs.
1/11/2013 4:28 PM
This was awesome. Already can't wait for the next one.
1/11/2013 6:06 PM
Looking through these categories to see where I draft was like reliving Christmas morning. I will definitely be interested in doing this again. I think we can tweak it a little to improve it. I would have altered my category a little if I could have done it over, to get better top end players and cut off the bottom end ones, but done is done.
1/11/2013 6:09 PM
At a glance, it looks like 5pointloss, reddtrain and firesalt led with three 1st overall picks apiece. I am pleased to get three top picks, but only one of them was in a category I was trying to get 1st overall. Ironically, the category I bid the highest on only yielded me a 4th pick. i think I will still get the kind of team I sought. Overall, I am pleased, especially since this is the first auction draft I have ever done.
