OK, I think you guys have a good thing going. I am in ;-D
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Maybe this league is a bit different then what I am accostumed to playing in. I have always been allowed to spend $260 for 23 players. My bench has always been a snake draft with no dollar value assigned ti them since it is not a keeper league.


I do understand your point though, so maybe $257 for 23 players is the way to go. ;-D

Seems that way. I've never seen a league where your bench didn't count against the salary cap. Too many variables that way in my opinion. ;-)

Something else I should add, is that if I'm reading the rules correctly, you do not have to participate in the snake draft. If you sign 26 players for $260 in the auction, then you are full and do not need to participate.

This is something that must be clearly defined.

Are we having a $257 draft for 23 plaayers with everyone participating in a 3 player snake bench draft

or

$260 26 man draft with 3 bench players? :-S :-S

This was one of the sticking points as we neared the end of the draft the first time. My interpretation is we have $260 to spend on our roster - PERIOD. If we can budget our bidding to be able to get all 26 players in the auction, fine, if not, we will fill our rosters with $1 players at the end with a snake draft when no one has more than a dollar to spend for players. I had 23 players and $14 left to fill four bench positions and was told I couldn't bid on any more players since my 23 man roster was full.

It really should be like other auctions. Plain and simple.

$260 for 23 players.

Fill a bench via serpentine. They get $1 value. Thats why its good to raise the salary cap in season to $300. Or even just make it $270 or $265.
