Remember that you can use Draftime to trade picks, players, or both.


Allow one end-of-draft replacement pick per team if, while the draft is underway, a manager loses a player to a confirmed season-ending injury. The replacement pick priority order will coordinate with the injured player's original draft position. Replacement picks must be identified within 24 hours following the conclusion of the draft.

(This is not a setting available in Yahoo; Commissioner Tools will be used to execute the replacement player transaction.)

Getting Started

Post by Mario LeMoose » Sat Mar 11, 2023 11:40 am

Official draft start: Tuesday, March 14, 9:00 a.m. (Eastern)

• The draft will run without a time limit between picks for the first round, assuming no prolonged delays.
• After the first round, a time limit between picks may be imposed, if necessary, so that we do not fall behind pace.
• Managers with the first and last draft positions in each round will have a single clock, not double time, for their picks.
• The overnight pause will be midnight to 9:00 a.m. Eastern; this is a daily pause, i.e., also includes Saturday-Sunday.
• We will be drafting on weekends.
• The 2023 MLB season begins Thursday, March 30. We must complete our draft by Wednesday, March 29, to qualify for first-week scoring.

Add a secondary email address, if you have one, to your Draftime user account to ensure that draft notification messages are received. Make sure your primary email address on record with Draftime is a current one. Please do not post time-sensitive draft-related messages using Yahoo! chat; instead, use this forum. If you need to get a draft-related private message to me, use the "PM" feature in Draftime, as I seldom check my personal (rr.com) email account during work hours.

All draft picks are restricted to players in the current Yahoo! pool for our league at the time your turn occurs. Please remember that the Draftime player list is not customized by league or platform. If you have any questions regarding a player's eligibility, take a moment to check the Yahoo! player list for our league before you draft him. "Placeholders" will not be allowed for this draft.

The "allow injured players from waivers or free agents to be added directly to IL" option is a Yahoo! post-draft feature. You will not be able to use it until after the draft is over and our league's season has begun.

Slacker penalty: Evil Commish reserves the authority to impose reduced clock time, up to and including skipping a turn, upon any manager who repeatedly delays the progress of the draft. Such an extreme measure should not be necessary, given the auto-pick options available in Draftime. :twisted:
