    I understand if you want to keep it to regular posters. Makes sense to me. Just a big baseball guy so threw my hat in the ring. Go Dawgs.

    I've never done an auction for baseball. I'm curious how long it would take with a 40 man roster for our size league? Is there a time limit on each player up for auction?

    The first year my league switched to this format, when rosters were empty, it took about 5 hours, but I made the mistake of not adjusting bid and nomination times for the latter half, so that really slowed things down. In future years, because of the keeper format, it cuts the time down quite a bit.

    If we need to do the auction over multiple days, I'll have the ability to pause and resume as necessary. I personally am fine sitting down on a Sunday at 1(ish) and running the auction to its conclusion if that's what people want to do.

    I've been in snake drafts that take 3-4 hours and, to me, those feel more drawn out because you are just waiting to pick. The auctions are fast and more involved, so the time feels like it goes faster.

    The way it works is each person was a set amount of time to nominate a player for auction (maybe starting at 30 seconds and adjusted later in the draft to speed things up) and then there are 20 seconds to bid on the player, but each bid in the final 5 seconds resets the clock to 6 seconds to keep a team from just sneaking in the last bid.

    Eventually people run out of money, so they are only able to spend $1 and its essentially a draft and the times get knocked way down.

    It moves pretty quickly.

    If there is an extra person that wants to participate, they can take my spot.

    One thing I'll say, is that ESPN's auto-draft actually does a really good job with Auctions, so if you decided to bail before your team was complete, you would be fine.

    And again, that 5 hour auction was because I left the times set to long for the entire time. Didn't realize I could adjust as the auction moved forward.

    Is that spit in the draft? F it!

    Honestly, hardly have enough time to balance work and family. Let alone an investment of $$
