What about for people picked up off the WW we decide to keep, which round do they get kept for?

We will settle that now, but I assume that will not affect the way people draft their teams.

Just a minor point - as in practice I don't think it will be an issue - both Chris and myself are in the UK, so our night period is obviously different to yours.

FAs can be kept for a 15th Round Pick (Escalates for two seasons)
WW Additions to Yahoo (Ex. Top Prospect called up, picked up by person with top priority) CANNOT be kept
WW drops (Player A is drafted in the 10th round, dropped, and picked up by Team 1, Team 1 must give up a 10th round pick to keep him) are kept for the round they were originally drafted

This was what was voted on for players who are kept after being added from the WW.

Can you draft a prospect who hasn't been called yet and keep him after the season?

Do all of the draft picks change value (Does a player picked in Round 7 stay at Rd. 7 forever or change to Rd. 6, etc?)

If the prospect is in Yahoo's database then yes. If not, then no.

As of now, the draft values stay in that round, although we have had talk of changing it. For now, it is Rd. X forever.

saw an idea to help keep the competition between the lower half of the league going for the entire season regarding the next year's draft, which would look like this…

7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

what say you guys :-?

Dave Knight's team finished in last place in 09 and he won last year. I think the system we're running here has been close to flawless. The only thing I am wondering is what we're going to do about escalating values for some of our keepers. Will McCutchen be a 25th round draft pick forever (example)?
