It would be good with me to - but to be fair, let me request a randomizer right now and I will report back ASAP. I appreciate the enthusiasm as I am keen to get started as well.

It took a little longer than usual, but thanks to everyone for joining.

I have just requested a randomizer to be run. I have no objection to someone from our group doing it, but I'd prefer to follow the normal method of having an outsider run it.

As usual, we'll use the order of signup as the corresponding numbers.

1. rbtsmith
2. gamiam
3. Macmathman
4. michaelsklom'
5. JoeyC
6. emart


Just a couple of notes on the rules that might not have been entirely clear.

In choosing the player triplets, the same primary position are exact matches so LF, CF, and RF are different (even if both players can play multiple positions. So Josh Hamilton, who is a LF (and can play CF) can be selected along with Billy Hamilton who is a CF (and can play LF).

Starting pitchers - whether they are starters only or starter/reliever - will be considered the same. Therefore, if you selected Maddux, you cannot also select Mathewson. Eckersley and Smoltz are exceptions since they have a card which lists them as a starter and another card which lists them as a reliever. Therefore, they can be chosen alongside either a starter or reliever.

After the autodraft, there will be waivers - order chosen randomly since there are no contested players. Everyone in the FA pool at that point (and from then on) are free agents, so if you drop a player you selected in the serpentine draft, he becomes available to all.

Finally, I neglected to mention that trades are unlimited.

If there are any remaining questions or uncertainties, please let me know.

Question for the Commish -

If a player gets a long-term injury and that player (e.g. LaJoie) has multiple cards, can the Manager swap cards and play a different card during the original injury span?

It's funny - I had the same conversation yesterday with gamiam about a league that he is running. His advice was that in leagues where you can play any card for a player (like this league), then you can substitute a non-injury card for the injured version. In a sense, it's similar to using various cards for players in specific situations (i.e. using McGwires 6L for a series against a team with multiple lefties and his 4R card against a team with all RHP). So for our league, non-injury cards can be substituted for injured players with multiple cards.
