    2 1/2 weeks to finish the draft with no time limit. I think it moved just about as fast as before. Might not need to set one next draft.

    I'm pretty sure us being at home with no real life outside of work had a bit to do with how quickly our draft finished.

    In other words we're:

    The SLOOOW draft was a very interesting social experiment. Essentially we removed all control. No rules. Total Freedom. There was no complaining. It was easy and relaxed. And went as expected. I don't know if that is a miracle, or an example of how life should be. How work should be. And if we all just let go, how everything still comes together. Take everything out of the equation. Remove personnel issues, pay people what they want, no more deadlines and meetings, no more work hours, no pressure, just total freedom. It worked.

    Maybe we should apply this total freedom to other aspects of the league, like lineups and the scoring system. Just start whatever players you want, and stats can be worth whatever you choose them to be worth.

    Personally, I plan to start 15 RPs and make saves worth +500 pts. each.

    ESPN's got a FAQ up on its website re fantasy baseball. Default settings are be 9 or 10 total matchup weeks, with the first 7 or 8 being regular season and then 2 rounds of playoffs. We can adjust those if we want to have no playoffs or only one round of playoffs. They have other things adjusted as well, like IR spots and position eligibility by games played.
