yeah I consider this as a lesson learned in the FAAB era. Now I know just how agressive this league is. Oh well hopefully someone drops a good player or I can get a to be closer off waivers.

Nothing wrong with that IMO... how many people are going to come up and be on waivers anyway? You just guarenteed yourself the best one.

In my 16-team league Johnny Damon was inexplicably dropped and got claimed for $88.

Wow!!! Damon for $88!!! I SERIOUSLY considered putting my entire $100 on Heyward too. Good thing this league isn't for money or I'd be pissed.

Thanks, and sorry for the thread hijack.


You are referring to Vickery Bidding. That is where the winner is one dollar over the second place bid. The FAAB does not work that way. If you bid $20 and no one else bids, he is yours for $20.
