Re: second franchises. Because it is not feasible to have teams switch leagues in the USA Fed, finishing off the draft takes a bit of luck, cooperation and patience. Four of the five two-franchise owners need an NL team for their second, but the three owners still to pick their franchise need not worry about that. We have often had to find another owner or two at the end, or swap some franchises to get going. If the remaining owners are debating between an AL/NL team and want to get us going as fast as possible, take an NL team for now. But you are under no obligation to feel limited.
Next season, this year's draft order will be reversed for returning owners, so those picking at the end in Season 21 will go at the beginning of the Season 22 draft.
