    2011 Expansion Draft - Starts Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 10:00 AM

    We will be starting our Expansion Draft on Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 10:00 AM. Well, now that the keeper deadline has passed it is time for our two expansion teams (DontHateonNumber2 and gdn) to participate in the expansion draft. Here are the rules:


    1. Both owners will be allowed to select up to five major league players to keep. These keepers will be taken from New York Squeaks and Naked Truth's rosters from last year. I will provide them the rounds the players will be kept.

    2. This will be a snake draft.

    3. Minor League players are not eligible.

    4. Each owner will be given 12 hours to make their draft pick. Normally I would allot 24 hours but I already posted the Expansion Draft eligible players and I need some time to insert keepers. If you have consecutive picks you will be required to pick both players within 12 hours. Please PM each other whenever you make a pick. If you do not make a pick in the allotted time you will be forced to pass on the pick.

    THE DRAFT ORDER:

    1. Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen: SP Josh Johnson, FLA (Round 16)
    2. Longnames: SP Brian Matusz, BAL (Round 21)
    3. Longnames: OF Andrew McCutchen, PIT (Round 18)
    4. Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen: SP Clayton Kershaw, LAD (Round 17)
    5. Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 3B Michael Young, TEX (2nd Round)
    6. Longnames: C Matt Wieters, BAL (Round 19)
    7. Longnames: SP C.J. Wilson, TEX (Round 12)
    8. Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen: OF Carlos Quentin, CWS (Round 8)
    9. Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 2B/3B Ian Stewart, COL (Round 12)
    10. Longnames: U Vladimir Guerrero, BAL (Round 8)

    Both teams may pick from the following players:

    I can see a long term investment elsewhere but Kershaw is going to dominate in our fantasy league this year. I predict top 3. I know it's important to stack up long term investments and Matusz is a great pick for that. But in this case I have to go with this year over future investments just based on what I feel Kershaw may be worth to our scoring system.

    But hey who knows I suck in this league. If I drafted Kershaw he'd get hurt by the end of April.

    Dude, Kershaw is injured already. He's not going to pitch in more than 16 games all year.

    That is why Kershaw was not taken with the second pick.

    What's sad is that I think I knew he was hurt and simply forgot. I was originally going to take Geo Soto, then Leo Nunez. I should've taken either one of those scrubs. Womp wooooomp.
