**Alphabet League Draft - Concluded

PostSun Jun 09, 2019 1:08 pm

2019 Alphabet League

Parameters:
2018u cards
100 Mil
DH
Frenzy
5% Drops
Random Divisions
25 Round Live Draft - serpentine (25 players) + Park (explained below)
Note: Exactly 25 players will have to be rostered at all times
--Unique Parks--

Rules:

* Basically you draft by letter, say 1st is A, then 2nd is B, and 3rd is C, etc etc, drafting a player whose LAST name starts with that letter. The draft goes in order of the Alphabet. Once a letter has run out of players, that letter is "empty" and we will skip that letter from then on. You can (and will) have multiple players with the same letter.

* Draft your Park in any Round along with your player pick for that round. Example, you draft Freddie Freeman. You could also draft Fenway along with the Freeman pick. The letter corresponding to the park will be the 1st letter used in the Park Index of 2018 Parks. Parks are unique.

The use of Passes will hopefully minimize the times you are stuck with the same letter. We have 3 kinds of passes that let you skip to the next letter. There is a (1) Letter pass, where IF you have already drafted that letter previously, you can pass over to the next letter. You can at anytime reuse that letter as well. There is also a (2) Free pass, where you pass a letter and skip to the next letter. There is a (3) Letter empty pass, in which all players associated with that letter are gone. Each player gets Three (3) Free passes for the entire draft. Letter Passes are unlimited. Letter Empty Passes are unlimited of course. You can only use 1 of each pass per turn [i.e. most you could skip would be 2 letters per turn using 1 Free Pass and 1 Letter Pass]. **You cannot use 2 Free Passes or 2 Letter Passes in the same turn. It is OK, however, to use 1 FP, 1 LP, and 1 (letter empty) in one turn. Note: If a letter runs out and you want a Park from that particular letter, you will not be able to do that. Keep this in mind when you're contemplating park choices.

Also, as far as FAs goes, all trades/drops/adds must be letter for letter (i.e drop an A for an A, not B for C then C for B). All Owners must keep 25 players (in any combination) for the season in order to match the letters they drafted. You must draft an Autodraft-ready squad. Two cathers for instance. We'll do two randomizers: 1 for draft position, and 2 for which letter we start with. For example, Jeep wins first draft spot. A 1-25 randomizer will then put the letters in a random order. If '15' wins the 1-25 randomizer then Jeep starts with the 15th letter "O." The next Owner with 'P' and so on. It's 1-25 because there's no players with an 'X.'

Be mindful of the cap though. If you run out of cap space, and are forced to draft a player you can't afford, you will have to drop another player to make room for it. The rules used to state your most expensive player, but I find that too harsh and will deem it to be one of your top 5 players (in salary).

Keep in mind this is a pretty labor intensive draft. Whenever skipped, you will have to take that letter, no passes will be afforded you, whether you already used that letter or not. 3 hour T.L.s 10am-10pm EDT. 6 hour T.L. on weekends, no T.L. for first round. Each Owner gets One Mulligan. He won't be skipped for the first violation, but once that Mulligan is used all succeeding T.L. violations will be enforced.

****

Now's a good time to hit on the Park Rule one more time to make certain we're on the same page. Your park is NOT a separate selection. It's picked anytime in the draft "with" your player pick. Your park has to correspond with the letter you're using. An example would be picking Tropicana along with a Teheran pick. One other tidbit, if the letter runs out you would not get to pick a park from that letter. I think this way of picking our parks really increases strategies. Ask if any Questions.

Be sure you don't end up with too many Pitchers or too many Hitters. Or, not enough. Make sure you have that second Catcher. That 2nd 'C' has thrown people off before.

Good Luck & Good Drafting!

Two Randomizers will be done:

#1 will be a 1-12 randomizer that will put the Owners in a random order based on above list.

#2 will be a 1-25 randomizer that will give the starting letter to that 1st Owner who won randomizer #1.

Interesting, we start with "A" I don't think I've seen that before.
Order is below, Falcon is up First.

Usually being on either of the ends is a bit of an advantage. I'm in the middle this time.
