Sorry for the delay...just a couple suggestions...can we get our own private forum for the league and put the appropriate threads there rather than in the progressive league classified forums?...I knew the draft was starting soon, but really didn't know it had officially begun til sitemail this morning...that's it...looking forward to a fun league...

they won't let us have the private forum until the 1st season is active (i think, am i wrong szcz??).  but we will have it asap.

Question.. Is there a minimum number of players we have to draft or do we just pick until our cash is used up? What about minimum ip's or pa's?

deaf - i think we need 25.  if i can waive that rule i will though.  i made no minimum requirements because it's a free country.  but for crying out loud i hope everyone can field a decent team with enough PA & IP's.

The system will not allow waiver of that rule. 12 x 25 = 300 players needed. I counted 178 hitters and 84 pitchers for a total of 262 players so we will be 38 short.

2 teams will be 4 players short and 10 teams will be 3 players short. However, because we are using career numbers there will be plenty of IP and PA.

I have always covered  player shortages like this by having owners draft $200k players from 2000-2012 and also allowing 6 average AAA position players and 4 average AAA pitchers. Those would only be used as fillers and could not be keepers for the following season.
