    Absolutely, Big Poppa: You can preselect (prerank) the players you want, and even if you can't make the draft, the server will select your players for you according to the order you'd like them in. The draft time is a little funky, but I wanted to put it at a time that wouldn't interfere with schoolwork (I'm a fourth grade teacher myself) and that wouldn't interfere with city championships on saturday and sunday. That didn't leave me very many options other than friday night...

    Also, feel free to tell any friends that may want to play that they're welcome.

    I would certainly like to play. Should I register now or when the draft starts? Could you give a link to that part of Yahoo?

    already registered and edited my presets.....

    mmmm, this will most definitely be interesting

    one question though, if a player that i selected is already taken, it will take my next one correct?

    when it reaches the end of my list, what will happen???

    i assume it will take the highest ranked player available, or will it go further and take the high ranked player of a position that i still need?

    Okay I am registered. I should be able to draft live on friday. If not I will do the pre-select thing.

    Bigpoppa: You are correct with your answer to your first question. The answer to your second question is that the server will make every effort to fill unfilled positions first, and will look first at highest ranked player available, then position of need. For example, let's say you draft Todd Helton in the first round. Your 1b is filled. Now it's the 18th round, and your preset list is done. It's your turn to draft, and the next highest player is Sean Casey. However, you've already got a 1B and a corner infielder, but no second relief pitcher or third outfielder. It'll look for the highest rated relief pitcher or third outfielder available, and take one of them.

    Hope that helps, and welcome to the league!

    Cheers,

    4 members so far....Guys who have already joined: I opened the league to the public, so if we don't get more from the pokemon boards, we'll definitely have a full league by friday.


    Cheers,

    If its still open tonight would it be okay for me to invite a friend? Its public anyways.
    Also I have a question Dendro. I see that our roster have 2 Catchers, an extra Middle infielder, corner infielder etc. Will these players stats go towards our points all the time or just if we put them in our starting lineup? In other words are we getting our whole team of batters (15 players or so) getting points each game or just the 9 we start? Thanks.

    Pidgeotto:

    Absolutely invite your friend.

    The positions you see will be your starters. That is, you will start two catchers, a middle infielder, a corner infielder, etc. All the points they accumulate will count toward you season total. There are also bench slots. A player on the bench will not accumulate points for you.

    well i can't complain too much about who i got for the draft..... my starting rotation has much to be desired for, but my relievers = close out
