So, when does the minor league draft happen and how does that work?

I see that you're not feeling well, Eric, but could you post the teams and prices when you're feeling better for us non-league members? (Or if someone else could post them, that'd be great) :)

Thanks everyone for coming to the auction last night.
With keepers pre-loaded, we finished the whole thing in a record 90-minutes!

I think I only remember around 10 mins or so, thankfully I was able to stay awake for the whole thing, and there was only one time I had to rewind a pick.

I think I figured out a way next year to slot minor leaguers. Since the site won't let me do it, I'll create a "dummy" team, and award the "dummy" team all our minor leaguers. This way, they are protected from anyone accidentally selecting someone, and rewinding should completely disappear.

Now comes the task of loading all the picks into Sportsline, since there's no way to do that automatically.

The auction draft is a true snake draft, not auction style. It will generally commence after teams break camp to avoid selecting someone who makes it to the 25 man roster and having to promote them immediately. E will obviously be the final word on how it's going to work.

The auction went much, much faster and this was a year of a ton of bargains. Even though A-Rod/Pujols went for 35+ I'm still pissed that Ortiz was 25 and Wells were 27 when Hafner and Morneau went for less.

The dollar deals were unreal.

At the end, I had 5 dollars and 5 spots. I filled them all for $1 each with no competition. I think most of us were tapped out and couldn't raise the bid even $1.

I actually missed the draft, sorry guys...

Can't believe you got Beckett and Helton for a buck man, great job... bastard!

At least I also got one of those $1 steals... Cuddyer

Alot of people blow their wad real early on stars and other hold off and don't spend a dime until the end. but they get screwed by a thin talent pool.

It was different this year - we all shelled out some pretty hefty contracts (I went 4 yrs on Hanley, 3 yrs on Cain, etc) - but we also all had to let some studs back to the pool (Santana, Tex, Vlad, etc)

So we were all pretty strapped for cash (I started the auction with $103), but had limited open spots available. So if you played your cards right, you got a steal. I saw Helton sitting there for a while, and ended up getting him in the 2 or 3rd to last round because either nobody needed him, or could afford to beat my $1 bid.

Here you go.

Thank you, sir. Some great bargains there, and some overpays as well, in my estimation. I think that it's amazing that Clive has the players that he has with $52 left over. He got some really great deals.

So, when does the minor league draft happen and how does that work?

The minor league draft will begin on Monday, April 2nd.

The order will be reverse standings from 2006, with the expansion team slotted in the middle. So it will go:

Striking Back
A-Team v. 2007
GHR714
The Corporation
Russell Peters Experiment
Sycamore Style
Kings of Arbitration
New York Knights
Bitches Brew

however, as of now, GHR714 is keeping all 4 of his minor leaguers, so he will not get any picks in the mL draft.

When you say it will begin on Monday, does that mean it is not a live draft? Each team has how long to make its selection?

No, not live. Done here on the forum. I think we gave people 12 hours to make a pick last year. There are only 18 picks to be made, so it shouldn't take too long.

I thought I got my 2 drops of mL in before the deadline...I only wanted to keep Gio Gonzalez and Josh Fields. If not, oh well.
