Players who were in college / HS this year aren't eligible for our league's mid-year draft. They have to roll over to next season.

A catcher goes No. 1.

Had you already drafted, Kent?

We had our mid-year minor league draft in one league today. This league drafts 12 minor leaguers per team at the start of the season (with lots of carry overs). You can leave a player in your minors until his rookie eligibility runs out. Also of note in this league, only one catcher slot and all minor leaguers start with a salary of $5.

Here are today's picks in order. Mine are marked with an asterisk. The VOID is one team that forgot to submit their picks. I ended up getting 4 of my top 5 picks and my 6th pick didn't get drafted in 36. That tells you how far away minors players we are attacking. Cal Mitchell was my #3 pick but was gone early.

I'm in five leagues now. The best anti-dumping rule set I've seen is in a league that admittedly has tried to find the middle between re-draft and dynasty.

Only five major league keepers per year. Every contract increases by $5 a year (no contract years). You can keep up to five minor leaguers as well.

By increasing contracts their are few $1 bargains (your home league's annoying $5 FAAB minimum does the same thing as well). Also, only 5 major league keepers makes it difficult to make trades.

I think you want to shift to a healthier option, maybe Sweetgreens. No more pleasant, but won't kill you fellows off as quickly (if you stay away from the ranch dressing).

Here's the latest in anti-dumping options ... I am coming to you live from a Brandon, Mississippi Waffle House. I, a total loser, came in last place in my fantasy football league. As punishment, I spend 24 hours in a Waffle House. Every waffle I eat shaves an hour off the clock. It’s 4:07 Central. ... only problem with applying this to my home roto league is that we're already losing owners faster than we can replace them ... but otherwise, I like the concept :-)

Yeah, I meant on Opening Day. I don't really consider any of those players as starters. I guess Diaz was one but the others were injury replacement guys. Rios was a platooner. Maybe I should just do a little work :-)
