I would be very interested in doing something like this. Possibly even two or three rounds in depth for players that would complement each other. I'm also surprised that Matt Kemp was not selected

Hell yes I'd do something like this. LMFAO @ Wilson Ramos taken before Kemp. I mean really, you can't find an ace you'd rather have than a middling catcher to build your team around?

I'm not sure what this is exactly? Pick a team that instead of signing them all for 1 year you get them for life, then play that team? I'd possibly be interested in doing something different like this. Do you do all call ups hidden FAAb style? Open auction? 1st come? Waivers? Minors draft?

It's not fantasy related in any way - more of a wanna-be-a-real-GM type exercise ;-)
