Resolving Contested Draft Picks

Startup Draft - Deuces Wild 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 44 million in unused salary cap cash - regardless of how many uncontested draft picks they had.

 

For resolution purposes, any player rank left at zero was changed to "999" (to allow for sorting).

Commissioner's Team (Oceania) not eligible for any random drawing win until 8 players are placed on teams.

We resolve in order of the count of teams selecting a player - starting with the ones picked most often.

 

David Price (Salary 100) was selected by 14 teams:

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Austrian 44000 0 1
St. Paul 44000 0 1
Everglades 44000 0 2
Glacier Park 44000 0 2
Foggy Bottom 44000 0 2
Savannah 44000 0 2
Oceania 44000 0 3
Washington 44000 0 3
Bemidji 44000 0 4
Yellowstone 44000 0 10
Stillwater 44000 0 16
Grand Canyon 44000 0 16
Bellerose 44000 0 22
New York 44000 0 999

 

The primary tiebreaker is the amount of cap room left - but at the start we tend to blow through all the tiebreakers until the last two.  The next to last thing to check is the draft rank (teams that didn't rank go to the bottom).  That leaves Austrian and St. Paul in contention for him - and at this point we go to a random draw....St. Paul gets him.

 


Next up, picked by 9 teams, Evan Longoria (1437)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Savannah 44000 0 1
Washington 44000 0 1
Erie 44000 0 2
Stillwater 44000 0 2
Austrian 44000 0 2
Bellerose 44000 0 3
Yellowstone 44000 0 6
Grand Canyon 44000 0 999
New York 44000 0 999

 

This random draw is between Savannah and Washington

Longoria goes to Savannah

 


Two players were selected by 8 teams.  When the same number of teams are involved, we go by decreasing order of salary.  If the salary is the same, we go in order of position number in baseball scoring (all pitchers are "1", all OF = "7", all DH-only are last).

 

So, Jason Motte (Salary 100, P)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Bel Aire 44000 0 13
Austrian 44000 0 17
Oceania 44000 0 19
Erie 44000 0 34
Washington 44000 0 34
Glacier Park 44000 0 999
New York 44000 0 999
Yellowstone 44000 0 999

 

By draft rank, Motte goes to Bel Aire

 


Colby Rasmus (100, OF)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Washington 44000 0 4
Austrian 44000 0 5
Oceania 44000 0 11
Erie 44000 0 18
Stillwater 44000 0 36
Foggy Bottom 44000 0 999
Bel Aire 43900 1 5
St. Paul 43900 1 10

6 players were picked by 7 teams

Ian Kinsler (Salary 2276)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Oceania 44000 0 2
Bellerose 44000 0 2
Yellowstone 44000 0 2
Stillwater 44000 0 3
Foggy Bottom 44000 0 5
Austrian 44000 0 9
New York 44000 0 999

 

Oceania is ineligible for the random draw between teams ranking him #2...so the drawing goes to Yellowstone

 


Francisco Liriano (751)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Oceania 44000 0 1
Erie 44000 0 4
Bellerose 44000 0 8
Bemidji 44000 0 11
Stillwater 44000 0 12
New York 44000 0 999
Washington 43900 1 10

 

Oceania has him ranked highest.

 


Matt Wieters (100, C)

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Everglades 44000 0 3
Stillwater 44000 0 5
Foggy Bottom 44000 0 8
New York 44000 0 999
Bel Aire 43900 1 1
Washington 43900 1 2
Oceania 43249 1 7

 

First tiebreaker is cap left, so even though Bel Aire and Washington ranked him higher, they already have players, so he goes to Everglades.

 


When the position is the same, we go in alphabetical order

Matt LaPorta (100, OF, "L")

Team Cap Left Total Players Rank
Erie 44000 0 24
