can't go wrong with a team that can potentially have arod/jeter/matsui/damon/abreu/mussina/rivera/johnson/cano/giambi/posada/sheffield/wang ...especially in that type of draft format.
To a degree, but they will also have the 20th best team so it should work out okay. Well maybe the snake draft isn't the best method as it is only fair with an even number of rounds.
Another thing - you can't trade players, but you can trade teams.
It might work better as an auction as opposed to a snake draft.
Agreed. And how about letting owners buy as many or few teams as they like? IE if you think your best chance is to buy, say, Colorado, TB, KC and Washington, you can do that, or blow it all on the Yankees (I'd imagine the bidding for NYY would get close to the total budget) or go for some combo like Mariners and WhiteSox.
