Six Drafts Tournament - 1908 Draft - Completed Topic

3/9/2014 2:11 PM
Six Drafts Winter Tournament

Salary Cap: $100 Million
Drafting Rules
The four people in each group will then draft their entire 25-man roster from their selected season (as well as their ballpark). The draft order for every round after the first will be based on cumulative salary spent (lowest salary drafts first). So for players who played with more than one team during the season, you will need to announce which version you are using in order to calculate the correct cumulative salary. For purposes of calculating a cumulative salary for draft order, all ballparks will be given an arbitrary salary of $4 million. Since it’s is assumed that anybody that wants to pick a ballpark early, must value the park highly. Obviously, this salary doesn’t count as part as your $100M team salary cap.
Owners should post their up-to-date cumulative salary after they make each pick, so it’s easy to calculate the next round’s draft order. I will not be actively running all the drafts. You should site-mail the person up next. The drafts won’t be on a timed schedule initially, but if a draft is running very slowly, I reserve the right to come in and set up a schedule to keep things moving (3 rounds per day).

Sorry, been away from the computer most of the day...

As much as I love the pitching, I feel like Honus Wagner in 1908 is a no-brainer.  Therefore...

I feel like a fish out of water when it comes to the deadball era.

My father wouldn't much care for this pick, as he was fond of saying "Why do people think Cy Young was so great? If he was so great, why did he never win the Cy Young Award?"

P Cy Young - $11,249,542   ($29,565,511)
