Thanks for all the help. My salary cap league has used these rankings to assign salaries to players and we start our slow draft Monday. Each manager gets 24 hours to make their pick. It gives us something to do over the off season. Thanks again!
You guys need 4 months to finish a slow draft in time for the season?
We are trying to stretch it out, but I don't think it will take all 4 months.
This is the 2nd year of the league and the first year for us to try this. We give each manager 24 hours to make his pick, but whenever he picks, the clock starts on the next guy. So far, we have had 10 picks in 3 days. We have 10 teams with 40 man rosters so that is 400 total picks. (400 picks/120 days=3.3 picks/day) We'll see.
The 2 interesting things about this league are 1-we assigned salaries to players based on our rankings and have a salary cap. 2-when drafting a player you get to decide how many years you want to keep that player at his given salary.(1-5 yrs) Our goal is to make this league similar to being a GM and building a team with payroll limits. So there is a lot to consider when drafting.
Here's how the first round went: Albert, Miggy, Cano, Felix, Hanley, Halladay, Tulo, Braun, Votto, CarGo. (i took Hanley at #5)
