Keeper draft question? (2nd season)

Postby timozbuck » Tue Jan 06, 2009 7:33 pm

Hello all, I could use some input. We are entering our 2nd year of a keeper league, and I have a question about the draft type. Our league keeps 5 players (rd value) and I was wondering if I should do a snake draft or NFL style order? I would really appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

This is our draft order: To snake or not to snake????

1 - 4th last year
2 - 5th last year
3 - 6th last year
4 - 7th last year
5 - 8th last year
6 - 9th last year
7 - 10th last year
8 - 11th last year
9 - 12th last year
10 - 3rd last year
11 - 2nd last year
12 - 1st last year.

with only 5 players kept then I think a snake draft would be good. If you kept like 10-15 guys, then I could understand doing a non-snake draft, but it's only 5 guys.

Agreed - the less players the better a snake is.

Another vote for a snake draft.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

We do a modified version for our league (5 keepers, round value).

The first five rounds are "straight", and we begin the snake with round 6.

Round 1 - 1 through 10
Round 2 - 1 through 10
Round 3 - 1 through 10
Round 4 - 1 through 10
Round 5 - 1 through 10
Round 6 - 10 through 1
Round 7 - 1 through 10...etc.
