General Message Board
We need four good managers to join eight returnees for our Silent Auction league. Please post e-mail if interested. The eight owners are a tough group so competition should be good. Rules overview:
Weekly 7X7 H2H, 30 man rosters plus DLs and NAs, 40 IP innings minimum
Start with $1,000,000
On March 22, all players are put on blind bidding waivers.
Each day, you can put in bids on up to 10 players. Your bids can be as high or low ($0 anybody?) as you want and you can bid on Mike Trout or Mike Carp or anybody else you want. Players who receive bids are awarded to the highest bid; players with no bids are back on waivers overnight. Bidding process continues until teams are filled, and then runs as a regular waiver wire.
Leftover/saved cash rolls into the season as bidding bucks for nightly waivers. (So if you choose to spend little preseason, you can control the in-season wire.)
Can send complete rules/strategy notes. The most effective strategy is to bid early in the process, but not necessarily bid high. (Most of the studs do go Day 1, but other teams have succeeded by bidding $0 on fifth round talent on Day 1 and scooping up remaining studs on Day 2, or sucking up "all" the good 2B and using them as trade bait, or... well lots of different strategies work, but sitting completely on your hands on Day 1 is the only strategy guaranteed to fail. Bid on 10 guys, and you'll be fine.)
