    I think auction draft sounds way fun. But it opens up big problems when guys who have done them before are in a league with a LOT of guys who haven't ever done one.

    As a novice, I'd like to keep our league in the spirit of noviceness.
    ...Good old fashioned snake draft.

    The first and only auction draft I've done was for the Fantasy Baseball league. It's a fun idea, but I like the 'ole snake draft. There is plenty of strategy there, IMO.

    I agree. We should stick to the snake draft.

    Novices can only be novices for so long, we all have to evolve eventually.

    I'd like to see Lee get a team. He would have fun generating rotations, keeping guys fresh for the playoffs, etc.

    I will be back on the case for this league this weekend.

    We will be doing a snake draft as we have people in Europe participating, and it will be a nightmare to run an auction with less than half of the league present.

    More details to follow. I do want a 12th. Whoever PMs me first gets the spot.

    Any chance of getting a vote for the possible draft dates? Maybe a weeknight after 9, or a weekday during the day? Or weekend, earlier in the day? I'm just so busy every evening (except Wednesday), it would make it hard to get to a draft. I realize other people are busy too, just wanted to open a possible discussion about it.

    Let's get a list of preferred dates and times for the draft to put into a poll. European owners, make yourself heard.

    I am available, any time, any day.

    Do not tell us when you are NOT available, tell us when you ARE available.
