The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived.
Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction.
This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed.
(Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which...
Alright, guys, we've narrowed it down to a couple of days in March:
Vote in the poll above, but remember what you are voting for:
OK, by the results of our poll, it looks like our auction will be taking place on Monday, March 7th, as it is the only day that we will have the requisite number of people to fill the league.
I encourage everyone to purchase AT LEAST one magazine, as well as use other sources like the net, and RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. It is very difficult to just show up to an auction cold and be successful, so the more you look into projected dollar values for guys and couple that with who YOU think...
Monday, March 7th Between 8:30 and 9pm. (Big_E, I know you said 9pm, so if it has to be 9, thats fine :) )
More info to follow.
Please respond to this thread to let me know that you have seen this information.
The Auction is the most intense and important part of this league. It is what you do a ton of research for before the season. Yes you want Jeter, but how much are you willing to pay for him? $26? What if you're at $25 and someone raises you to $26, do you go past your limit and bid $27?
The Auction is going to be a great and fun time, but it is crucial that everyone is there; its not like a draft league where if you don't show up your team gets drafted a default roster. If you don't show up...
The fee for the league is $25. I don't know what the due date is, that's up to Snatch Catch. Pay at your convenience at this link:
For those who have paid for the league, will we be getting invites to join the Sportsline site? Has the site been set up/paid for?
I was going to go with "Deadbeat Nixon" in honor of everyone's favorite deadbeat dad, but I didn't want to look at a Sox player's name all summer.
So I'm going with - Bitches Brew
Should we let JDPNYY vote in the other poll ?
O.K.- There is ONE WEEK until the auction!
The Sportsline site has been set up, and everyone should have gotten e-mails. Most of you guys have signed up already, but we're still waiting on Mark_19 and Obgreen.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE RESEARCHING!
THE AUCTION WILL BE AT 9PM SHARP ON MONDAY THE 7TH!
I was looking through a fantasy baseball magazine today and there was an ad for rotowire.com
Their 2005 FBL League: http://www.rotowire.com/mlbcommish05/ (you might have to go in through the main http://www.rotowire.com/ page) has a new feature:
New for this season:
Live auction room for online drafting with dollar bidding.

Fantasy Auctioneer seems like a very good option for us, seeing as we are trying to have our auction move swiftly. It would allow everyone to participate and lessen the level confusion and disorder that we would invariably experience in our chatroom.
I wil pay for the site if everyone can go to it and run their diagnostic test (We need to know if everyone can support it).
Please go to the site (link below), run the test, and then vote in the above poll when you pass. If you fail the...
Tomorrow night we will be having our auction at Fantasy Auctioneer!
Please make sure you arrive promptly so we can get this done as quickly and efficiently as possible. If this means not taking up extra time by bidding against me for players that I throw out, then so be it. It will be for the best of the league. ;) :D
Also, please look at the magazines that you are using for values and make sure that the prices they are listing are MIXED LEAGUE prices, not AL ONLY or NL ONLY. Most...
...on that $20 Mota deal. It was no different than Evil Empire "mistakenly" pushing the +1 button. I had an amount sitting up there from the previous player up for bid - Miguel Cabrera I believe, who's price exceeded $20 so quickly, I never submitted it. We then verified that it was possible for this to happen.
Seems like a $47 bid on Vlad to me was more getting caught up in the heat of bidding, especially at the beginning of a draft. Upping a bid by $12 for a marginal player seems...
Man I had a great time last night getting hammered and drafting. First time in an auction I think I'm pretty happy with how I did. Thank you Snatch, and thanks to the rest of you for making it fun!
I'd like to apologize to you all for the mess-up early on, I hope you can understand that my bid of 45$ for Beltran was a mistake. I was typing in the chat and when I hit enter it went +1 instead. Thanks Snatch for fixing it.
The auction was a lot of fun (even if it ended so late...)
When will we be able to see the results?
OK...I was bored on the train. So I took my printout of the draft results and plugged in the roto values for each player. For this I used Sportsline's values, and where there was no value, gave the player a value of $1. In a couple of cases I consulted Rotowire, because Sportsline did not rank players who qualified only as a DH.
The list only takes into account team value. It doesn't matter if you spent the full $260, or only $232, since (1) We don't get scored on how much value you got for...
Okay, Kevin (Soriambi) is a long time member of this board and he's always been Kevin.
Kevin (Snatch) on the other hand, is the commish of this league and deserves to keep his name as well.
How do we clarify these two guys? We need something because I'm so used to doing the first name thing I don't want to unpersonalize my posts with user names.....
Do one of you go by Kev at all?
Please see this thread regarding adding and dropping players.
As per the constitution...adding and dropping players is not allowed prior to opening day (April 3, 2005).
Please drop Gil Meche and re-sign Juan Rincon.
(Those other transactions you see either corrected roster omissions, or reversed transactions that were not allowed prior to April 3, 2005).
Could we all refrain from adding and dropping players until after Kev has updated the dollar values in our rosters? I think it would help him, since he has to lookup the values of everyone and manually add them, and if the rosters are not the same it could cause some confusion.
Also, it appears some players that should have been on people's rosters have been missed. Hopefully when he adds the dollar values, he'll catch all his misses.
Sign-up List (We can accomodate 20 teams, max)
Just post here if you want in. Remember: Auction Leagues are not for the faint of heart!
1) Snatch Catch
2) Soriambi (Thanks for your help in coming up with ideas)
3) FormerlyKnownAsMHHL (wo's resonse to my PM was "i'm in. Give me the times that work for others.. and i'll make time."
Since this is a new league, and people are still getting used to who everyone is, it would be helpful to either put your team name in your title, or your sig. (we usually do this in the original league, too.)
I noticed that we were able to draft the following:
On my roster, I have a 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, and MI. No CI. When I picked up Nomar this morning by accident I was going to move one of my guys to CI and put him at MI. But it said my roster was invalid.
We'll use this as a trading block of sorts. Maybe not so much to flesh out deals, but moreso to put out feelers as to the leagues interest in some of your players, or for you to covet another man's assets (Steve, I'm talking about players ;) ).
To let it be known, I should probably change my name to Trader Joe, because I am ALWAYS making deals. No one on my roster is untouchable, as long as I get value in return.
That being said, let me kick things off by saying that I have a...
All my minor leaguers are valued at $10.
They should be valued at $5, shouldn't they?
I'm trying to add the minor leaguers to my roster.
Ian Stewart, 3B, Rockies
Billy Butler, 1B, Royals
Were not in the Sportsline system. Please use your commissioner powers to create them and add them to my roster.
(and BTW, my 3rd round pick was MIKE, not matt Hinckley)
