Resolving Contested Draft Picks

Startup Draft - Motor City League

See the Draft Rules for how these players were awarded.  Remember, that all contested players are placed first - so at the beginning, all teams have 43 million in unused salary cap cash - regardless of how many uncontested draft picks they had.

Once all the tied teams have at least one player, the tiebreakers get more involved.  Tiebreaker #1 is cap left.  Six teams move on.  Tiebreaker #2: Fewest players in the same category of player (in this case, a "position player"): California, Florida, Lake Michigan, and Denver got pitchers with their first players, so they move on.  Tiebreaker #3 is fewest signed players and all have 1 player.  Tiebreaker #4 is fewest players at the position (which is none for all 4), so with Tiebreaker #5, California gets Olt with the highest rank.


Four players were picked by 7 teams.

Mike Trout (Salary 4279)
Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Kid Rock, 43000 0 1
Motor City 43000 0 2
Cincinnati 42900 1 1
Florida 42900 1 1
Detroit 42900 1 3
California 42800 2 1
Ashland 41483 1 2

It's between Kid Rock and Motor City, and the #1 rank beats #2 - Kid Rock

Joey Votto (3502)
Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Motor City 43000 0 3
Cincinnati 42900 1 3
Denver 42900 1 4
Detroit 42900 1 14
Ashland 41483 1 4
Troy 41483 1 8
Kid Rock, 38721 1 3

Motor City then gets the next guy - based on cap space.

Addison Reed (999)
Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Detroit 42900 1 10
Denver 42900 1 21
Tennessee 42323 1 15
Ashland 41483 1 25
Troy 41483 1 999
Motor City 39498 1 16
Kid Rock, 38721 1 17

Detroit and Denver have identical cap values - but Denver already has a RP, so with tiebreaker 2, he goes to Detroit

Tyler Skaggs (107)
Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Windsor 42900 1 8
Lake Michigan 42900 1 12
Florida 42900 1 18
California 42800 2 15
Gratiot 42756 1 36
Motown 42421 1 24
Motor City 39498 1 25

Three teams have 42900 in cap space.  Windsor and Lake Michigan already have starting pitchers.  Florida has a relief pitcher, but not yet a player in the "starting pitcher" category, so he goes to Florida via Tiebreaker #2.
