    Default Dispersal draft order (vote decided)

    The dispersal draft option won the vote, with the specifics:

    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.
    (I think) we can all agree to allow teams to continue picking as long as they want, though I reserve the right to make somebody who drafts 100 rounds worth of minor leaguers who have no shot of making the majors do the actual job of entering it into the game. If that's an issue, please speak up.

    Please do take special note that the draft will be snake-style. How should we determine the draft order?

    Edit: I fully don't expect "random draw" to get any votes, but I don't want to eliminate any possibilities offhand, either.

    I will admit that I voted for the option that would most benefit me. I feel dirty.

    Funny, I don't see "let someone else draft on Boston's behalf" as an option...

    By the way, for some strange reason, it felt good (in a nostalgic sort of way) to type "Boston" instead of "New Orleans" for you...

    I agree. And in no time at all, it should feel nostalgic to see Boston listed in the cellar of a division. Sort of warms the cockels, doesn't it?

    We have entirely too many lawyers in this league for any randomness to be tolerated.

    "Last three seasons" has 12 votes, "random draw" has 7, and there are 3 votes left to cast. Last three seasons wins - I'll post a draft order this afternoon or evening.
