The Calhoun AL auction will be Wednesday, March 28, at 8 PM Eastern time. You're stuck with me running the auction, then I'll hand the duties back over to Steve.

The auction will be held here in "Room A", so use these links:
Java -
(Do not do anything until the room is opened. Then type in your nick.)

Flash -
(Just hit the "Connect" button on the page. When you have entered, then type in "/nick name-##" (without the quotes).)

Those of you cool enough to be using mIRC, go to channel #Mocksports (Instructions for IRC clients are here: )

For your nick, PLEASE use the codes listed at the bottom. Not jumping all over the place helps the eye when trying to track the bids.

Make sure to give the room a spin BEFORE the auction!

Try to arrive a few minutes early so we can go through any last second questions and get started on time (or even early!).

By the way, my baseball player knowledge is seriously dated. When nominating, PLEASE include both first and last name and team. That'll keep you from getting stuck with the wrong player.

Lightning rounds will, as always, start after the eighth round. The starting dollar value WILL be at the remaining salary of the team with the third most money, so that three teams will begin the bidding. If that seems like too high, don't complain - it'll get down to a "reasonable" amount pretty quickly. This section of the auction is a game of "chicken", and we'll give all three "richest" owners the chance to swerve first.

Here is what I have in my software for the rosters and team needs. Look them over, and if you have any questions post them here, BEFORE Wednesday!

hi Shane,

Looks like this database needs to be updated with the info from the freeze thread that you added:
Removing Colby Lewis P TEX
Freezing Joe Mauer C MIN $26
9 freezes for $132
Removing Topper on Carl Crawford
Adding Topper on Mark Reynolds 3B BAL
Adding Topper on Jose Valverde P DET


I am looking forward to joining Calhoun this year. I will be at work during the entire draft time unfortunately so I would not be able to draft, however I will be an active owner all year as I have been in Feller AL for many years. Does anyone know of anyone who would want to draft for the Badger Milk team?

I knew there was something! It's fixed, thank you for double-checking.

As far as I know, you're the only owner that won't be present, so I shouldn't have much trouble putting a team together. Hopefully it'll even be decent!
