I'd rather my leaguemates didn't know this. ;-)

Isn't Morneau ranked like about 400th or something?
It will take me forever to pre-rank all my players.
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Just don't get booted off your computer during the live draft. I was at a buddy's place a couple of years ago, and he used AOL dial up. I got booted off, and ended up getting stuck w/ Javy Lopez instead of some much needed pitching depth. I dropped him immediately, and he went on to outproduce every other catcher. I am now pissed about the yahoo curse.

as long as you pre-rank your players, even if you plan on attending the live draft, you won't be too bad off. If you get booted from your live draft and you didn't pre-rank, then you are sol.

Yeah, preranked about the top 100, but it doesn't matter, it doesn't take into account position need. Lopez was way down there, it didn't even matter that I got him, I was just upset that he goes off the year I drop him because of yahoo.

Why would anyone use the auto draft leagues. It seems to me that would take half the fun out of the league.

I usually do one a year....they are much more difficult to build into a strong team...I just do it for the challenge... B-)
