Since picks are moving so quickly- I moved times up a little- if fowldawg doesn't catch it- we won't skip

The question arose that it probably wasn't right to get a 5th round compensation pick if you lose a player to the other league with a value of . 5 or a value of nothing, and there needs to be only one 5th round compensation pick- to avoid a manager getting four or five 5th round compensation picks. I'll reprint the compensation rule with the clarification and the amended lines italicized:

SPECIAL RULES CONCERNING COMPENSATION PICKS

The problem with AL/NL leagues is losing your best players due to the MLB (real teams) trading a star player from one league to the other or a star player becomes a free agent. Anthony Rendon, Mookie Betts, and in the past few years Manny Machado, Gerrit Cole, Sonny Gray, Z. Greinke, M. Stanton, etc. In keeper leagues it is not uncommon to lose 3-4 players due to real team trading and free agency. In the event this happens owners will receive compensation picks in the following way.

If a team loses a player ranked in the top 100 MLB players according to the ESPN top 100 player list (ESPN puts out this list every spring- this year they put it out March 10th) the compensation rule is:
A team losing a player/s in the top 20 ranking gets a 1st round compensation pick, wherever that team is picking in that round, i.e. 7th pick means the team gets a 7th pick and a 7a pick.
A team losing a player/s in the top 21- 49 ranking gets a 2nd round compensation pick.
In the 50 to 100, a 3rd round compensation pick.
If a team should lose more than one player in the top 100, they would also get a “b” pick in the corresponding round.
A lost player beyond the 100th ranking gets a 5th round compensation pick ONLY if it is the team’s only compensation pick. I In other words, if the team has taken advantage of an earlier compensation pick, they may NOT use the 5th round option. In addition, only one 5th round compensation pick allowed. The player's value must be 1.5 mil or over in order to receive a 5th round compensation pick.
The compensation picks will probably not make up for the loss (knowing that the free agent market will likely be thin)- it still keeps the team from being at a mild to severe disadvantage and it will help at not losing owners due to getting their team decimated.

Good catch, but

I am up to Round 23 in the NL and Round 24 in the AL

They are in Rounds 24 and 25, which I'll get to as soon as they are completed-

Terry, I don't know about you but when I first started out working with google docs I was all over the place....as in inputting names in the wrong places and it was mentally exhausting. It surprised me how exhausted I was afterwards. If you are having any exhaustion like that I really feel for you. It seems as though the brain has to get used to google docs before it becomes second-nature. That process took me around a year...maybe a bit longer.

And good luck tonight in the Finders Keepers league. We play game seven of the semi's tonight.

Fred,

Yes, this is (literally) the first time I've used googledocs. I'm getting there, but you are right, it's a little tricky at first. Hope we are injury free in the semi's and the game doesn't end with a walk with the bases loaded or something like that.

Since we are getting close to the end of the draft, I'm going to ask for a random number sequence to determine AL divisions. Here is the order of signups.

1. evanthomas-
2. toshiro
3. Waynick
4. thechamp87
5. seanreflex
6. JMP1
7. MFL536
8. joker329
9. fredpaii
10. bigmahon
11. fowldawg
12. Terry101

The first number in the list is Evan's, second number is toshiro's etc. Numbers 1-4 East, 5-8 Central and 9-12 West.
Remember we play the AL season first. As soon as the regular season is finished, we will start the NL season.
