    If the anesthesia hasn't worn off by 8 pm, you'll have more worries than fantasy baseball.

    We have the option to NOT enforce roster limits during the draft. Meaning that if you don't want to draft, for example, a C, you don't have to. What do folks think of this? This allows you to draft whatever you want, like 10 2Bs I suppose.
    I can do this. Driving out of town the next morning so this works.

    Maybe you want to promote a mL from your bench to play C. As long as the roster is legal on opening day who cares about the draft? I say let there be no limits.

    Obviously I have no skin in the game and am impartial since I have no keepers

    as usual I’d go with whatever the league wants. But I’m a hard no. Every other league I’m in, this is a strict rule. In fact in my Roto league the starting team you draft has to be the team you start the season with. It forces actual strategy.

    If you want to promote a minor league player then do it before the season starts. You gotta drop a player anyway. So draft that position in the last round you have available.

    I’m assuming this isn’t a keeper league, because you can’t start keepers if you don’t draft them...

    Also to be honest I don’t see the benefit in this rule, really. How does it help/hurt the league if all rosters must be legal for Opening Day? That’s usually how I judge a rule that put restrictions. Is there a purpose? I’m open minded about this if you can change my mind.

    This is great. Every year towards the end we run into a few issues with slotting players.

    We have a couple of days to legalize the roster.

    Pretty sure some of those were DH-only. I do remember one year when something like two of my first 5 non-keeper picks were out for the whole year, though.

    Where have you gone, Mark Prior? A rotation turns its lonely eyes to you . . .

    every league I’m in is a keeper league.

    However, after further thought, I don’t really care that much. If someone wants to eff their team in a deep league, fine by me. Players have to be dropped anyway so it’s cool.

    I agree with Steve. Plus with the autodraft if someone can't make it they end up with 23 OF.

    Well folks, I am going to have to use the autodraft feature this year so I hope I don't wind up with 6 C's.
    I am unable to draft on Wednesday the 18th until at least 9:30 or 10.

    well, after the first five “stop the draft!” You’ll prob come in by round 2 or 3.

    Yeah, I think we need to. It makes sense to postpone the draft until we know when the season will start.

    I agree with postponing the draft. Only one of my leagues so far is not postponing.

    I think it should be delayed. Some players will come down with the virus, that will affect the draft.
