Sure why not. I need something to keep me entertained during work. Work certainly doesn't do it.

I second that meh. I've never done an auction and would be totally lost even more than I usually am in baseball drafts.

Then I would use the rest of my money to get Nick Punto, Mike Aviles, and Marco Scutaro so I could then have the pleasure of cutting them.

Why do you English majors always talk about cutting things?

Because the world breaks everyone, and we like to think we're getting ahead of the game.

Speaking of, anybody interested in a $20 pay league? Pretty easy H2H with non-standard scoring.

EDIT: Looks like I may only have 1 or 2 spots left.

Napkin I DEMAND that WAR be one of the categories, and I will not even consider playing if plebian metrics like "batting average" or "RBI" are used. Hmph and thank you.

5x5 H2H sounds good to me

I'd like to do it, but it depends on when the draft is. I'll be completely unavailable beginning Saturday for a couple of weeks...

It's a slow draft so was thinking start maybe Monday? Figure do the standard 3 hour windows 9ish to 5ish during the week and whenever people can get to it on weekends. We're all online often enough that I don't think it'll be a problem to get through a draft before the season starts. Don't think we'll need to be all that anal about the 3 hour windows either frankly.

And if all 3 of Blacken, Felix, and Haunted are in there's our 12. I'll set up the league this afternoon at some point.

Aye

23 rounds x 12 teams = 276 picks, ~3 hours a pick = 828 hours = 34.5 days max. No problem on timeline.

Shouldn't the league name invoke some baseball player's mustache? Sal Fasano's was a personal favorite of mine.
