First step will be the franchise draft. I will generate a random order of our 16 owners. Each owner selects their franchise and then we pause for everyone to post their keepers (I will start a separate thread for that). And then we can proceed with the regular draft, which will be in reverse order of the franchise round.

Yes, '95.

I picked the teams based mostly on market size, using the 1990 census, so the teams are from the most populated cities, except for Cincinnati, which got a pass for being the first professional team. Atlanta just barely missed the cut. I thought it would be a perfectly random and slightly realistic way of determining who got contracted. 

And of course all of those Braves players will be available in our draft.

Drat. Now I need to decide who to take, I had the 'Stros in my sights. 

Off to do a little more research, will be back shortly.

I was coveting the Astros, but I'll be ok with the best player in the game on my San Francisco Giants.
