So far I have received 3 lists, am waiting for the other 7. Please get them to me ASAP as the season begins on Thursday and I would like to finish up this process quickly so it doesn't drag on too long into the regular season.

I realize I am not in this league, but the requirement of submitting 25 ranked players in my view deviates too far from past practice. If an owner is making the 17th pick, the owner can make a more intelligent pick if he knows who is off the table. He can look carefully at the choices on his list and make a choice. He cannot make that sort of discriminating choice as he could in the past if he is required to submit a wholesale list.
The approach contemplated here might go faster (though it is unlikely to have the kind of broad participation hoped for), but it sacrifices hoped for speed for a more thoughtful draft.

Until we incorporate the minor league draft into our auctions, a process like this is preferable to the one we used last year.

I'm in a league of 12 owners outside of mocksports in which a minor league draft proceeds without time limits set. It takes three days. We could have a similar draft in which the LA has the discretion to warn an owner that if he does not make a pick soon, his pick will be passed over.
My concern here is that the method (a method contrary to past practice) has been decided without community discussion and could have implications for other leagues.

Rick sent an email to all of the LA's suggesting that we do it this way. Uecker has already begun to do so and I expect other leagues will follow.

To deem a process a past practice, wouldn't it need to have happened more than once? We could argue that it set a precedent, but the Commish has final say...

Yes, the Commish has the final say, but his actions are not immune from criticism particularly when they are initiated without prior discussion. Did the Commish indicate how LA's are to handle the leagues (which will be all of them) when owners do not submit the list of 25? I further expect that the lists will be defective in that they will include players already taken. In my view, a poor process is worse than a slow process.

I have now received 5 lists. I am missing lists from Nez Code Talkers, Slugs, Muppet Punchers, SHFC, and LURK. Please get them to me ASAP or if you are not planning to participate in the minor league draft please let me know that.

I've just sent my truncated list to you, however I agree with Steve.

Geoff...I understand what you are doing and all our PM's you sent me. The only suggestion I might make is to post a deadliine for teams to post their list....otherwise, this could take all season.

I am in the Philippines and getting you a list of 25 ranked players in a very short time is nearly impossible. I protest this minor draft the way it is run. No discussion just implement a poor option. Not happy.

Dang, in the other league I'm in, it was done this same way and completed way faster than the long drawn out process last year. I thought it went great. I don't see what the big deal is, it's minor leaguers, half will be traded to the AL or get hurt anyway. That's my two cents anyway.
