Payouts = $360
1st Place $245
2nd Place $ 75
3rd Place $ 30
Draftime $ 10*

* - draftime is typically paid by the last place team and not part of the prize pot.

Can we 'start' the draft in draftime so its open and we can set queues? Tomorrow is a clinical day for me meaning I'm up at 5:30a and on the hospital floor until 3:30p. I will NOT be around to make any picks and if we can't access it until tomorrow I will NOT have a queue set to make picks for me.

<30> I can't start the draft until I load the keepers. I can't load the keepers until everyone posts them. I will be in bed when the deadline comes. So, unless you have some trick to share, I can't help you by starting the draft early.

I plan to start the draft with no clock for at least 24 hours. I expect to start the four hour clock during the nightly pause Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

You draft right after me, if you want to e-mail me a four man queue, I can make your first pick for you. There is very little chance that your queue for 1.04 could influence my decision at 1.03. Later rounds, maybe. Hell, for that matter, it won't influence anyone in the first three picks. Just post it here, hehe.

The 2021 season starts on April 1. Keepers will be due by March 15 at 11:59pm PST. The draft will begin March 16.

Though, I am sure none of you will wait until the last second to post your keepers, take note that the time above is not Daylight Savings Time.

The following have posted keepers:
<2> Bean
<4> Astade
<9> Loki
<21> Wiggs
<23> Khahan
<26> Holt
<28> Tree
<29> dpr
<31> GO

I still need keepers from:

Perm Dudes
GoatLocker's Beasts

To confirm -- Da Bomb, Goat and PD have also not selected keepers on Yahoo (many other didn't either). I will shoot out an email to them to post here ASAP.

Since keepers are due and the draft starts first thing tomorrow morning I did what I could to scrape together a round 1 and 2 queue and emailed it to Great One to make those picks.

Because draftime isn't open I can't go in and set queues, see keepers etc. I can't even set a designated picker!

Is there any chance we could push the start of the draft back until Wednesday March 17 - just 1 day?

Honestly since keepers aren't even submitted I cannot do a complete round 1 queue. I'll be in bed and asleep before the deadline and if there are any changes or last minute submitals it could affect who is or isn't available which could affect my queue.

This unavoidable. I wake up at 5:30am tomorrow and I wont be back home until after 4. I'll be working on the psych ward so I cannot have any personal belongings like a phone with me. And since draftime is not available to do anything in, I cannot utilize any of the resources to help me out.

From <32> above:

I plan to start the draft with no clock for at least 24 hours. I expect to start the four hour clock during the nightly pause Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

I don't see anything that tells me that this is not still a good plan.

is there a chance to open the draft up now so we could more easily review everything? way easier to see it in that format than a scatter shot of postings -

no clock, but no reason to not open the draft now?

      Mon, Mar 15, 2021, 23:02
Let's quit trying to reinvent the wheel guys, there is a reason for this calendar, I posted it on 26 FEB, why are we trying to change it now?

Goatlocker has not yet posted his keepers. Until he does, I cannot post them to Draft Time. Until that is done, I cannot open the draft.

I HAVE loaded everyone's keepers to Yahoo. You can see them at Draft Results. The player's tab shows only players who are not designated keepers. If you take a guess at what Goatlocker might keep, you can determine who might be available for the first round of the draft. You can do that right now, at your leisure. You can create a queue and just posted to the draft tomorrow morning.

I really don't know how to make this any easier for you guys. Someone else can do this next year.

Post 39 - that makes sense/works. Somehow I missed the “no clock” part. If it gets to me I’d prefer to make my pick on my own, so please disregard the emailed queue.

Couldn't sleep. Loaded Goatlocker's keepers into draft time and yahoo. Then I started the draft.

Unfortunately I had forgotten to load Da Bomb's keepers in Draft Time. I removed DaBomb's seven keepers from the list of available players in Draft Time. DaBomb's keepers wont be in his team list, but also cannot be drafted by someone else. I hope you can handle that DaBomb.

So, the draft is underway. I will load your draft picks to Yahoo at least once a day before I go to bed. Periodically check "Draft Results" to make sure I haven't made a mistake with your team. As I load them, they will be removed from the "Available Players" in the players tab at Yahoo. This should make that a useful tool when making your picks.

I sent an e-mail to Fred, sysadmin for Draft Time. Asking him if he can do anything to help with DaBomb's keepers. He will likely offer to reset the draft.

Meanwhile, check your keepers and the draft order to ensure I didn't enter those wrong. Load a queue and proceed as normal for your first round, but keep a record of both the queue and any picks you end up making.

This will be resolved before we start a clock.

with the draft stopped, we can't do this.

Was working with Fred to restart the draft. DaBomb should see his keepers now. Appears the reset left my queues in place, as well as all of the keepers I already input. Mind racing about the potential there.

Anyway, we should be all set now. Let me know if you see anything amiss ASAP.

As an aside, not sure if you all know it or not, but, in Draft Time, you can change the position assigned to a player by clicking on your name to get a list of all of your players. Next you click on the player's name in that list to change his position. Might help if you use the grid function to see what you need.

Khahan will be available in 1-2 hours so lets just let him make his own pick. If he doesn't show I have a queue for him this evening.

The first round is always slow to get rolling. If we make it to the end of Round 1 by tomorrow night, we are on schedule.

One has to assume that 24 hours is long enough for anyone to post a one round queue to Draft Time. For that reason, I have confidence we will get the first round done by tomorrow night when I begin a four hour clock.

By the time we get to the fourth round or so, I just watch the projected finish in Draft time to trigger a clock reduction. Normally the four hour clock will get you through the entire draft. Being skipped is pretty good motivation to stay on top of things.

Tomorrow is another 'no access' day for me from 5:30a to 4:30p. I've set wiggs as a designated picker. Thanks for the help. I'm going to try to set 2 rounds worth of queues for him to pick by. He picks right after me so that should help speed things along going back to back.

never mind my personal hatred of weekend clocks, maybe we oughta slow our roll to give PD a chance to pick - one of the main reasons i hate weekend clocks is the friday night/saturday morning time out that can happen to folks, which is what looks like happened here.

if it gets to me and he hasn't picked yet, i will be using up as much time as possible to allow him the opportunity.

What's the rule in the Dirty Dozen for Shohei Ohtani?

He's drafted already as a hitter but not as a pitcher. Are we splitting the guy, in this league? Or it he one player?

Draft is over and I have loaded all of your players to Yahoo. Undrafted players are on waivers until 26 MAR, and I have adjusted waiver priority to Reverse of Draft Order.

If you find a mistake, let me know ASAP. These corrections will end my terms of service.

Good Luck this season.

My team looks good. Thanks for getting everything organized and updated.

I made the same complete last year but it appears that once again all the best 2b-eligible players are held by a few top managers (11 of top 12 held by 3 managers...) leaving a few of us with some larger gaps. I have two risky option, with playing time concerns, but if those dont play out I may be looking to trade for an upgrade.
