    Just a reminder to all.. Also if you are using the pre-draft rankings in preparation of the draft, it needs to be done 45 minutes before the draft starts..

    Someone please warn us if he is auto-picking. My understanding is that an auto-pick takes up the entire allotted time for your pick. The draft will take forever if there's much of that going one.

    Better yet, if you're autopicking stop by and set your team to autopick and it will make the pick immediately instead of waiting for your ass to do something....

    Nobody said we were talking about you.... :lol:

    The only thing I don't like about Yahoo is that there's no way to see how many players of each position you've ranked when you're doing your own player rankings, unless you just rank them by position.

    With 2 catchers and 5 OFers playing all the time, I want to make sure I'm ranking enough guys there.... :huh:

    Just doubling up the chances somebody else will grab Mauer... :devil:

    It's still only going to mean 20 catchers in people's lineups, so everybody could theoretically have some team's starting catcher on their bench. It just spreads it a lot thinner than most leagues...

    i mean, i either take mauer with my 2nd pick (not happening) or wait til the 19th pick (won't be there) so there goes that. i'll trade for him though!

    No it doesn't.. I had an auto draft in the fantasy football this year because I was stuck at the hospital waiting for someone and the yahoo league draft was over in less than an hour.. I believe his first pick will take the whole time then its automatically changed to auto

    i know, but in reality there are maybe ten catchers in the league you want on your team.

    True but 2 catchers make it more of a challenge.. But I would agree that you are splitting hairs between 11 and 25 in the catcher ranks

    Actually if I would do anything it would be to go to 4 OF and 2 utility..


    I've played in leagues with two catchers before, its not a big deal and not everyone uses the max catcher position games either..

    Had some who's been a commissioner of a league for years look over our draft settings and suggested that I add another P since we are playing holds.. So I added another P.. He said with a 10 team league 5 OF is reasonable and isn't out of the ordinary for a rotisserie league.. So I kept that the same. Of course when I hit save for the league settings it somehow unset the draft order but I fixed it..

    Other than that, everything looks good.. I'm about finished my with board so I'm good to go for tomorrow..

    After doing a mock draft just now on Yahoo, I really think having 2 Catchers is going to be overkill. Please switch one of them to IF or UTIL.

    Not changing anything since last time I changed something the draft order reset on me.. Don't want anything to screw up an hour or so before the draft starts.
