Hey guys. I know every year we do a little something for fantasy league. I am not sure who is going to set it up (I can if nobody steps ups).

Figure I put this down now so people can sign up ahead of time instead of scrambling at the last minute to get 12 teams.

Im suggesting it be done on Yahoo. I noticed they have a new draft system which looks fun. "Live Auction Draft". Basically you have a budget and bid on players. I think with the depth this board goes in with the sport we can have a good time with it.

Here is a link describing it - http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/sports/fa...dvsauction.html


Anyways post up on here if you are interested. I am thinking the draft will be done around last week of spring training?

Also any comments/suggestions are appreciated.

So I did a draft for fun with the live auction. It takes ALOT longer then a regular draft so be prepared to be there for more then 2 hours. It is alot more fun though as you need the manage money. I am not going to give away the tips and tricks I learned from it but here is what my squad looks like.

No team is perfect, but this is one of the strongest power tanking teams I have ever drafted.



SP - Doc Halliday
SP - Mark Buehrle
RP - Tyler Clippard
RP - Mike Adams
P - Ervin Santana
P - Bronson Arroyo

C - Joe Mauer
1B - Ryan Howard
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - A-Rod
SS - Reyes
OF - Matt Kemp
OF - Corey Hart
OF - Nolan Reimold
Util - Casey Blake
Util - Randy Winn
