The 2017 Minor League Draft will start Tuesday, March 28nd at 8:00am
While the draft is running, you are NOT permitted to pick up as a free agent any player who could be drafted in the minor league draft.
Draft order is reverse of major league draft, but any expansion teams pick first.
You have 18 hours to make your pick.
Please post your pick in large font, bolded font, colored font, anything that will make your pick stand out from the conversations.
The draft is 3/27 at 8:15pm.
This means that trading season is open. Keepers are due 3/25 by 9pm, so I can input them on Sunday 3/26 before the draft.
If you haven't posted your keepers either here or in the unofficial thread, you will get no keepers.
Have at it.

It took a lot of work, and I consulted with several people here (including the commissioners) but attached here is a copy of what I hope will become our League Constitution. It incorporates all our rules and procedures, and I hope I didn't leave anything out.
If you can think of anything that I got wrong, or left out, please post it in this thread.
I'd like to pass this now, rather than during the off-season, so hopefully all the owners will get a chance to look at it.
This is the formula for the schedule for a 20 team, 4 division league in which each team plays division opponents twice and all other teams once.
First, teams need to be grouped by division and numbered, 1 through 5 in each division and 1 through 20 for the entire league. Other than that it's not essential that you put them in any particular order, but listing them by the order of last year's finish helps assure that teams won't end up playing each other in the same weeks each year....
Draft is THIS MONDAY 3/27 at 8:15PM EASTERN
Over the weekend, I will update contracts and then "PROCESS KEEPERS" which means every other player will be added to the FA pool with no contracts/keeps/etc.
Will start processing at 2am on Thursday. Get your waiver requests in.
I didn't want this to get buried in the keeper thread so I have to expose my idiocy and throw myself to the mercy of the league.
I never updated my keeper spreadsheet last year with Cody Bellinger, and didn't realize I was keeping him in my minors and not Aaron Judge until the switch to my roster was just made by GDN an hour or so ago.
Anyone with a pulse can see that this is a bad move and clearly it was not my intention (despite some homerism and Judge-love).
Is there any way...
I lost the bubble on Tom Murphy's (C, COL) minor league status and did not keep him but could have. He will start the season on the DL and I would like to take a mulligan and keep him in a mL slot.
What say ya'll?
Ozzie Albies 2B Braves
Francis Martes SP Houston
both top 30 guys..
It has been correctly pointed out to me that in my haste to get the teams secured and the season started I skipped the expansion draft for the new owners instead giving them a team of a retiring owner.
I apologize to the two owners for their ................ty teams.
In order to rectify, we will hold an EXPANSION DRAFT.
But FIRST that means that the rest of you will have to get in your keepers EARLIER. Didn't think of that did you?
The new keeper deadline is:

Blue Jays top pitching prospect

Guys with Wood
I've been looking at league settings from other sites, and also in my other leagues, how Stolen Bases are rewarded in points leagues.
A big percentage of leagues score them at 2 points. It gives life to players with the talent to steal bases. It's a real talent and hard to come by, and I think it should be rewarded better. Plus it also makes those players who are power and speed that much more productive scoring-wise and closes the gap between elite hitting and pitching (thats not so...
Vote on whether to go back to 20 teams. We need a majority of teams to vote yes to change.
Is it too early for this? The winter meetings have me all flustered. I wish the season started tomorrow! Anyone looking to make some offseason trades or interested in declaring some possible keepers for the upcoming year? Let's discuss!!! We haven't had a good scrap in a while!
We have 16 teams right now, with 2 new owners and 2 more expressing interest in joining.
We can go back to 20 if we want.
Since we've lost 3 managers this year, this is a great time to get some new people in to the league. If you're interested in the league, say so here. It's a very fun, H2H points weekly league, with 6 keepers and 6 minor league spots. If done right, it's a tremendous amount of fun with a great commish and some very active managers. The teams to be taken over are also pretty solid teams with great keepers.
The list so far:
miko638 (Miko the American)...
Opening Day is April 2. We need a draft before then and then time to process FA.
I say the latest we can do a draft is March 29.
I've added some dates to the poll here. Choose.
Okay, since P&C reported, we gotta start thinking about keepers and deadlines and a commish.
So who wants to be commish?
Okay, let's get this baby started.
Guys with Wood - Yes
Romanian Yankees - Yes
Mrs. Bill and Sluggo - Yes
Larrupin' Lou's - Yes
Miko's Biogensis Marauders Of Bad Etiquette - Yes
As of last year, I think the trade after the trade deadline players only have 4 or 5 weeks with their new team excluding playoffs.
I would be in favor of moving it up two weeks, in order to get more value for keepers.
Any other rules to discuss?
