Concept is easy. Draft a player, then blacklist one. That eliminates two players, the one you've drafted, and the one discarded that no one can touch.
Looking for 16 people to play. Draft order is randomized, will be snake style.
All players are eligible, so that means Negro Leagues and Japan Leagues as well, plus any others you can think of.
Once you have made your pick and blacklist, PM the next player. No time limit between picks, since I know people have other things to do, and a blacklist draft is especially hard on one who misses a pick. But as a courtesy to others, and to keep the draft running smoothly, please be as quick to the pick and blacklist as you can. I'll track the picks as best I can.
3 INF (Fill three spots of your choice on 1B, 2B, 3B, or SS. No repeating. Example combo: 1B, 2B, SS.)
2 OF (any)
10 pitchers, no restrictions.
I have been tweaking this post constantly, and I apologize if I am confusing people. Fortunately, we are in the early stages of the draft, so I doubt people's lineups have been screwed up at all. I think we finally have a reasonable design for this issue, and my thanks to everyone who helped out.
