    I'm going to post these two questions here, and also over in the General Discussion thread because I think these two issues need to be settled prior to me making the first pick. I'm also not sure that everyone has seen the draft thread is up yet.

    1. Is it permissible to trade positions in the league formation draft for future considerations? A couple of owners have approached me about trading the top pick in the league formation draft. I was under the impression, form previous leagues I have participated in, that this is not allowed for the formation draft. I know it is always allowed for the rookie draft because that is an annual event; however, as the formation draft is a one time occurrence I thought our positions here were "locked in" and can't be traded.
    2. How are players who actually were rookies in 1901 going to be treated - as formation draft players or as rookies? If I recall correctly, when we created the CKL all 1961 rookies were treated the same as players who had been in the league for a dozen years. That is, they came in at the formation salary scale, NOT the rookie scale. The big difference is, however, that as I understand it everyone in the P2P League will be free agent after their initial contract is up, and won't be eligible for the RFA rule (other than the top two if you choose to designate them), whereas in the CKL we got to keep our original players as long as we wanted, because they got an annual raise.

    Opinions thoughts are requested and welcomed.

    --I don't see why you couldn't trade draft position. I know I made several trades in the CKL start up draft (trading future rookie draft picks for picks in that draft). I believe Rich did say that there would be no rookie status for players in this draft, regardless of whether they were real life rookies or not. You can get RFA status for your first 2 picks in exchange for letting them hit the market after 5 years and the rest of your picks will be UFA at the end of their term of service.

    Yes Rich stated that the initial draft no player would receive rookie status.

    The Angels are shopping their 1st round pick (#6 overall). Not looking to move out of the 1st round, just willing to move down a few slots. Any teams with interest please feel free to PM me with a purposal.

Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    OK, as long as it appears to be OK, the Express are offering the #1 overall pick. I would be looking at switching places in the first round with additional compensation. If you have any interest, PM me. Note that what I would be looking for in compensation would depend on your position in the draft.

    Tough to decide who to take with the top pick in a draft like this, but three guys really stand out in this group. I decided to take the guy who plays every day, has the most PAs over his first eight seasons, and is still widely ranked as one of the top ten players ever. The first player drafted in the P2P Keeper League is:

    wagner1.jpg wagner2.jpg wagner3.jpg

    HONUS WAGNER

    The Express choose to sign Wagner to an eight year contract, with the understanding he will NOT be eligible for the RFA rule.

    Hey, that card on the right looks like the one I found in my grandfathers attic !!! I wonder if its worth anything ?!?!?!?!?!

    The Inmates take Nap Lajoie and sign him for 8 years. (If its good enough for Lew...)

    Probably not much Ed, but I'd be glad to take it off of your hands for $100 just because I like you, man!

    Kind of similar to when the Knights had the second pick in the CKL formation draft in 1961, and Mark was able to say "I'm building my team around Willie Mays".

    Yeah, it's a good feeling. It'll be fun to see how he does, even if the Express don't win anything.

    Sorry for the delay in making a selection but the Tigers have been in negotiations for the last 24 hours regarding this pick. The Tigers and Spiders would like to announce the following trade:

    The Spiders will received the Tiger's 1st, 3rd and 4th round pick in the 1901 draft.

    The Tigers will receive the Spider's 1901 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick, 1903 2nd round pick and 1905 1st round pick.

    Rich will confirm. If anyone else wants to trade their #1 pick in 1905, the Tigers will listen to offers.

    Nevermind, misread the trade.

    I'm new to this league format, and may not have been reading the rules closely enough. Also, if this belongs in the rules thread I apologize and will post future questions there. However, since this is the draft page:

    1. I see that first round picks are securable for up to 8 years. Is that automatic? Is it allowable to draft a first rounder for 4 or 5 or 6 or.... years?

    2. Same for RFAs. Are they always drafted for 5 years?

    I'd also like to know the answers to BigRon's questions. I'd assumed both to be yes, but clarification would be nice. To the second though, why, if you want to have a guy beyond his eighth season, would you sign him to a less than five year RFA deal?

    Anyway, the Richmond Rams will go in a direction perhaps few were expecting, and select young catcher Roger Bresnahan.

    Bresnahan has probably the greatest positional value as there are very few catchers with any offensive value in the early years. definate 1st round talent but maybe a litle high at #4

    All 1901 draft pick contracts are 'up to' contracts . . . . . meaning you could sign for less than the max if you chose. RFA deals are for 5 years

    Yeah, there's a couple other guys who have more pure value, but Bresnahan is the guy I wanted most and I wasn't comfortable trading down and risking losing him.

    He's getting an eight-year contract, btw.

    I think a good pick, Dan. As Rich mentioned, he plays what was basically a very offensively challenged position and produces very well there. His production isn't quite as high as some, but he does have the 12th highest OPS+ for the years 1901 to 1908 inclusive. Coupled with his position, I think it's a reasonable pick, even at #4.
    You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton

    I was looking at Bresnahan at number 8 I thought he might still be there.

    I was looking at Bresnahan at #6 if he was still available. We'll have to go a different route now. :-(
