    --I didn't check the traded picks thread before running this so these are all original owners of the picks......

    1) Spikes: their rebuilding seasons pays big dividends
    2) Lumberjaxx: like the lottery a little better now, Lew ?
    3) Badgers: if memory serves the lottery has usually been kind for the BBs
    4) Gold Sox: slide 3 spots - or whoever owns their pick this year anyway
    5) Hard Cider
    6) Blues
    7) Gamblers
    8) Thunder
    9) Dust Bunnies
    10) Iron
    -----------------------------
    11) Legends
    12) Angels
    13) Knights
    14) Beavers
    15) Skipjacks
    16) Corsairs

    Oh man I am absolutely furious right now.

    I always do poorly in the lottery but I still like it. Just a heads up Mark while I am deployed I will not be able to send MPs so I will have to post everything manually. Because I can't load the game on a government computer and that is the only place I have internet capabilities and I can't transfer the files because all external media is disabled. Sorry about the inconvenience.

    The Dust Bunnies are putting Jim Slaton ($7.00, FA 79) on the trading block. The Bunnies may also be willing to trade Gary Matthews ($11.00, FA 79).

    The Corsairs are shopping SS Alfredo Griffen. Decent hitter with a solid glove making minimum wage. Looking for bullpen help, 2B, 3B or a draft pick.

    I don't blame you, Erik. There's a pretty big drop off after the top three, at least from what I've seen so far. Haven't really worked on the draft yet.

    Lumberjaxx: like the lottery a little better now, Lew ?
    Not sure. Had I moved up to the top I might be convinced, but now it probably boils down to do I take Rickey Lite (Tim Raines), or do I still go with Stieb, who would have been my pick at #3 under the old system.

Sorry about the inconvenience.
    It's not nearly as inconvenient for Mark as your deployment is to you, Jason. Stay safe over there.

    I have a conflict with the schedule, but I don't want to cause a holdup either. I won't be available at all on Friday the 7th, so wouldn't be around to partake in the live auction and/or post the results. I will be at the rehearsal and decorating for my daughter's wedding on the 8th. I would like to see everything pushed back a week so I could participate and track things as usual, but as I said I don't want to hold things up, so whatever works for everyone else is fine. The Legends have like a kazillion picks in this year's draft and a couple guys they're trying to resign, so they probably won't be big players in the auction. The Jaxx may or may not be, depending on what happens with the HTD bid on Dave Winfield.

    Oh yeah, the reason I originally came onto the thread is just to let everyone know that all of the team pages have now been updated, in case anyone is interested in checking out their single season and all time leaders. You may see some unexpected changes, since I increased the minimum PAs and BFs for the percentage stats. I figured with everyone now having at least ten seasons in the books, it was time to increase the minimums to a more reasonable level.

    Apologies to Dan and JW. I forgot to enter your Batter and Pitcher of the Year for 1977 during the previous update. I looked at the team stats for 1977 and made the picks, but if you would like them changed it's no problem. I had a real problem with Craig's; for some unknown reason, the report I use would only list the first digit of the year for season records, so it took a bit to get it right. Never had the problem before, either, or with any of the other teams. One of those inexplicable computer things.

    Yep. The first time I've had my own draft pick since 1967, and without the lottery I would have had Rickey Henderson. I could have even dealt with Raines or Stieb, even though they don't fit my current plan, but dropping to #4 is a huge blow. I guess I could trade the pick if anyone wants it. This is so immensely disappointing.

    Thanks for the congrats. It's not going to be easy having my youngest - and last one at home - leave the nest.

    And many thanks for pushing the auction back a week. I apologize to everyone for causing the delay, especially since I don't think either team I run will be big factor, but I appreciate it.

    I feel your pain Dan. Been there before. Dropping three slots was a real hit, especially in this draft.

    That's fine; I think I picked Carew and Rozema anyway. Minor change - if you could add "League Champion" to 1978 and change "CKL Championships" to 4, we'd be up to date. Thanks!
