the 2012 players are available now on the test site, so its only a matter of time before they are moved over to the live site.  thre are some interesting thigns with the salary structure.  there look to be a couple of decent bargins and a couple of guys that you wont ever use in a regular league because their salary is prhibitive for what you get.  it also looks like 2012 will be very close to a historically average season.  normalized ratings change very nominally (for hitters +.004/.005 for BA, +.005/.006 for OBP, -.009/.015 for slg; pitchers see a +.004/.005 to their OAV, +.02/.03 to their whip)

Beernoser had me randomise the draft slots:

randomized order is:

10, 8, 23, 3 ,18, 5, 24, 7, 12, 13

6, 2, 9, 19, 14, 15, 4, 1, 11, 16

17, 20, 22, 21.

I pulled 24 coins out of a bag, if anybody is wondering.

The 2012 WIS ratings are now posted.

I have asked admin for a separate forum for our league so we can have all our roster and auction threads together in one place.

Here's our schedule.

On Wednesday,  Oct 10 we'll have our divisional draft. This is just to place teams in divisions.

On Wednesday, Oct 17, we'll have our first auction day.

There are 1,007 players in the 2012 database, so we're looking at about 40 days of auction and then an estimated 10 additional days to put up players who got no bids or had tied bids.

I asked Robocoach to pick 24 numbers out of a hat and post them. This is just the order of the divisional draft. I hope we get a private forum within a few days and then I'll post the draft order there. Anyone who wants to can fgure it out. The numbers correspond to the number of each team on page one of this thread.

We have heard from everyone but Knowhim. If anyone knows him, please ask him to get in contact. Otherwise, we'll have to replace him with one of our waiting list owners.

Knowhim has checked in. We are ready to go.

When we have our divisional draft why not pick a stadium at the same time. Players that want the DH pick a AL stadium, those who don't go NL.

I thought of drafting stadiums, but I think there may be 1-2 that people really want, so this will give everyone a chance to bid on them if they want them.

I heard from admin about a private forum and they said we need to have a league filled before we can get one. So, let's move the draft to the Theme Leagues Forum.  That doesn't seem to be used very much. Then we can keep our forums decently close together.

I like rejay's idea but since we are bidding for them when do we bid on them? At the end of the division draft or the player auction?

There are 30 stadiums. I will put six on each day's auction until everyone has a stadium.

Once you have a stadium, it's yours until you cut it before a future year's free agent auction.

Once you own a stadium, they don't cost you anything to keep. It's yours.

I have set up the divisional draft on the Theme Leagues Forum. I'll post auction info there and keep track of rosters there.
10/7/2012 10:31 PM
Divisional Draft starts Wednesday morning.

Dodger Don has first pick and can pick early if he wants to. Draft order is in the Theme League Forum.  Eventually we will have our own private forum.
