I'm setting up an aution draft this year using ESPN's free software. The draft will be held on 3-29 at 2:00CT. I'd like to invite 9 Cardinal fans and 10 Cub fans to join in this massive fantasy league. If you are interested in participating please send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll send you out an invite. Please indicate if you are a Cub or Cardinal fan.
If you have never done an auction draft the rules are fairly simple. You have a budget of $260 (not real money, at least in this case) to field a 25 man roster. That gives you about $10.40 to spend on each player. I feel like an auction draft requires a lot more strategy than a normal snake draft. For example you could spend $90 on a combo of Pujols and Soriano and be left with only $170 to fill the rest of your roster. I've been in many auction leagues before but never one of this size, so it should be interesting as owners scrap for players late.
