    Default Dispersal from contracted teams (vote decided)

    I've seen two plans proposed. I've summarized (or quoted) below:

    1. Full dispersal draft
    10 round dispersal draft, snake style, players drafted keep their current contracts. Teams have the option to pass on any pick, but passing doesn't eliminate them from future picks. After 10 rounds, everyone with a major league contract that's undrafted is released into UFA. I'd also suggest that any players on minor league contracts not drafted after 10 rounds become treated like any other minor league free agent.
    2. Salaried players to FA
    Anyone with a contract greater than $100k goes to FA
    Minsal players and minor leaguers go to a dispersal draft.
    Would the minsal players only have their remaining years left with the new team, or reset minsal? I would assume only whatever is left?
    right. no reason to reset their clocks.
    Of these two options, which would you prefer, with room for an (other) to be explained in a post below.

    I presume that under the CF plan, one has the option of drafting minor leaguers as well as players with contracts?

    Yes - under my plan, everyone in all of the organizations gets thrown into a giant draft pool, major and minor leaguers together. Anyone not drafted after the draft is complete goes into UFA, and any players available after UFA that has never had an appearance in the majors then falls under the "minor league free agent" rule we have in place.

    FWIW, I don't think we have to limit a dispersal draft to ten rounds either. Just draft until everyone gives up on it.

    Might as well let Bruno keep drafting rather than be bothered with claiming them sim-by-sim later.

    I voted dispersal draft, but with the caveat that we keep picking until the last team is done. You can pass on a pick or quit the draft at any time.

    I suppose I'm cool with that, but really - out of 4 franchises, are there really going to be more than 320 players worth drafting?
