1946-1960 Sealed Bid X 5 league thread Topic

First, a rules reminder:

In each round of player selection in which you still need at least five players, you'll have $100 to spend.  You'll send me five player names (keeping in mind that only seasons from 1946-1960 can be used) and how much you are bidding on each player; all five bids must be positive integers, and they must sum to $100.  So, for example, you could try this:

$96 Mickey Mantle
$1 Yogi Berra
$1 Jackie Robinson
$1 Ernie Banks
$1 Al Rosen

Or this:

$35 Mickey Mantle
$20 Yogi Berra
$20 Jackie Robinson
$14 Ernie Banks
$11 Al Rosen

I'll send my picks for the round to the first two owners who send me their picks, before I have opened them.

After I have received all lists for a round, players will be awarded.  High bidder for any listed player gets that player; obviously, the most you could bid on a single player is $96.  If two owners are tied for the highest bid on a player, the player is thrown back into the draft pool for future rounds; any owner who has bid on such a player CANNOT bid for him in ANY subsequent round.

In the late rounds when you need fewer than five players to fill out your roster, bidding cash available is the number of players you need multiplied by $20.  (You'll only send a number of names equivalent to how many open slots you have at that point.)

I'm going to limit this to 16 owners, since I am not sure how much work it will be to process the rounds.

Other particulars: no salary cap, no to AAA, waivers, clones, trades, and DH.  Stadiums are not exclusive, and you can use any stadium that was used during any year in the 1946-1960 timeframe.

Looks like Grayfoxx and I overspent a little on our top choices that time around!

This is a hell of a lot of work that you are doing. Nice job & thanks
1/17/2013 1:41 PM
I am really pleased that I can now use "A Dollar For Lollar" as my team name, that makes up for any work that I am doing.  :)

I dont know which is more amazing, (1) we each spent the max bid on someone, or (2) NOBODY else bid on Mantle or Williams!!!!!
1/17/2013 2:11 PM
This is a great idea for a league that I hope sticks around for while.
1/17/2013 5:47 PM
Love this format & it could be run in historical increments for example the time between the 2 world wars or the steriod era or ????
