Serious Biz Dynasty Year 14 - Where Prospects Have More Value Than In Real Life

Funny that I have been refreshing all night to see if anyone picked.  I just finally looked to see who was up.  Doh!  I thought Spartans was just trolling us when he tagged us with Givens.  When Greedy rolls out we will pick. It should be by 11am ET at the latest.

With that pick everyone has had at least one player stolen :golfclaf: 

I have no idea if the minidraft has any significant impact on competitive balance in the league but it does add a bit to team-building strategy and drafting in general is fun.

I think adding the MLB Draft class from the previous summer was a nice touch. Both for competitive balance and strategy reasons.

The biggest competitive balance impact is probably giving the worst teams a crack at some elite prospects. Top teams don't suffer too much, although it does make it harder for them to hold prospects.

It probably hurts the deepest team the most which is usually me, but I don't think that impact is significant, and both the draft and the effect on strategy make the league more fun IMO.

I would argue the opposite on the first sentence.  I lost some serious prospects in these drafts as a celler dwelling prospect hoarder.  This year we turned the tables on that finally.

It evens out the first year talent which is good.  It also prevents people from stocking up after reading a amateur draft preview article and I deny any allegations that I have ever done that.

I only have one word to say about prospects and that word is you never know.

  1. UM Jake

We still need a protected list from @HellToupee

The draft sheet is here.  I'm going to keep it locked for editing until the lists are finalized because It's a pain getting info from CBS to Google.  If you have any last minute changes to who you want to protect, please continue posting them here.

Bump.

Are we starting over?  Did someone fail a physical?

Minidraft transactions have been made on CBS.  Thanks to all for keeping the sheet up to date.  Please doublecheck your rosters.

The next phase is to drop players to get back to the 40 player limit.  RnR, Rodg12 and Cheese need to drop three, Northern Voice drops two and everyone else one.

Once everyone is at 40, I'll unlock the site and we'll have a waivers run a couple of days later.  After that, it's FCFS til the cows come home.
