Ikey's All-Time Draft Rules

1. Six Hours Time Limit on selections ... when time has expired any of the other GMs may make a selection for you. If this happens, you may be replaced, at my discretion. Further, when you do pick, PLEASE PM THE NEXT GM AND NOTIFY HIM THAT HE IS OTC.

2. The Clock runs from 9:00 AM thru 12:00 midnight ... it is suspended at midnight and restarts again at 9:00 AM ... so for example, if you Go ON THE CLOCK at 10:30 PM, time does not expire until 1:30 PM the following day {that would be six hours in total while the clock is actually running} The clock does not run on weekends.

3. YOU CAN make selections while the clock is suspended ... in fact, it is encouraged ... the clock is simply not running against your time limit ... but YOU CAN submit selections while the clock is suspended, and that is encouraged

4. You may {AND MUST} PM your picks to another poster if you sense that you will be unavailable to submit your own pick when you Go ON THE CLOCK ... and it is YOUR OBLIGATION to choose someone you can rely on ... If you give someone your picks and he does not make them, there will be NO DO-OVERS and NO GOING BACK ... It is ultimately YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to have your picks submitted on time, and NO-ONE ELSE'S…If you do not make it in time, we will find someone to make the pick for you and you will have to keep that pick if you like it or not.

5. YOU MUST check the thread titled "ALL-TIME DRAFT, BY POSITION" to see if your choice is already taken BEFORE you submit your selection ... If you choose a player who is already taken, AND THEN LEAVE, it will be treated as if TIME EXPIRED {after 30 minutes} and we will proceed without you.

6. The "BY POSITION" thread will not always be up to date ... I am only human and I am not here 24/7 ... but it will be updated as often as possible ... it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to know that and DOUBLE CHECK the draft board and draft thread as well ... ultimately the responsibility IS YOURS ... so check, double check and triple check, because there will be NO EXCUSES if you submit an ALREADY SELECTED PLAYER ... If you are still on the board after making this mistake, YOU CAN submit another selection {YOU WILL BE GIVEN 30 MINUTES TO RETURN!!} ... after that, TIME IS EXPIRED.

7. If you do PM your picks to another GM, please leave us a post in the "DRAFT DISCUSSION THREAD" to let us know WHO has your picks so we know who to PM when you Go ON THE CLOCK

8. We are drafting ALL-TIME TEAMS ... that means you may draft any player who has ever played in the MLB or any Manager who has ever managed in MLB [no Negro League/Mexican/Japan league players, unless they played in the MLB] ... but THAT MAN must have played the position you draft him to play on your ALL-TIME TEAM {ie. cant draft a CF to play 2B, etc etc}, the Manager must have been an MLB Manager, and the GM must have been an MLB GM ... once again, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to do the research and GET IT RIGHT

9. Position Eligibility

In order for a player to qualify at a particular position he must play 450 games at that specific position you select him for. If he did not play 450 games, then he is not eligible at that position, if a position player hasn’t played more than 300 games in MLB, then he isn’t eligible in the draft.

(An exception for active players, An active player is eligible for only the position he has played the majority of his games at, unless he fulfills the 450 game requirement in that case the 450 game requirement supersedes the active player rule)

A pitcher in order to be considered a starter mush have starter 100 games started in his career, a reliever must have at least 200 relief appearances in his career. A closer must have over 150 saves in order to be selected as a closer.

OF rules- A Left Fielder and Right Fielder are interchangeable in this draft, you can play an eligible RF in LF and vice-versa, and however, a LF/RF CANNOT play CF on your team, a CF, must have CF eligibility.

A DH will be chosen but we are drafting with NL rules so pitchers will hit, the only time the DH would be used is as a PH or during inter league play or in the fictional WS. A DH has to satisfy the Games Played requirements as well.

10. I reserve the right to ADD or SUBTRACT from the rules as we Go along ... I will need that flexibility should unforeseen issues arise ... so the possibility of NEW RULES is always in play

11. BELOW IS THE TEAM YOU MUST DRAFT ... YOU MUST FILL ALL OF THE POSITIONS BELOW OVER 27 ROUNDS

And I'm kind of glad about that.
