5:30PM


DRAFT LOCATION:
Chuck Gallagher's new house...
31 Pine Woods Court
Reading, PA 19607

Since some of you
forget every year:

You must draft
26 players for $290
(2) C, 1B, 1/3, 3B, 2B, 2/S,
SS, IF, (6) OF, U, (10) P

If he hadn't been trying to bid me up, he wouldn't have gotten stuck with a $14 Jose Contreras.

ESL ROSTER FREEZE:
Friday, March 16th, 2018
5:30PM

You may retain up to 16 players.  You must also note any contract extensions at that time.  You must also note any rookies that you will retain on reserve.  You may submit your freeze list early - you can change it as many times as you like up until the dead-line. However, once you submit your list, you may no longer make any trades until after the draft.

Dale had 1 beer and then spent $46 on Jose Reyes.

 
End of Year Summation
Drew Gallagher, 10/03/17
Fall is my wifeís favorite season. However, when I go to the bank and start writing checks to people other than myself the foliage starts to lose part of its attraction. This time every year there is a part of my wife that wishes she was married to Chris because he usually gets a big check (provided he doesnít lose it). Although I have not gone on the web site (www.yourpalchrismal.com) to confirm it, I have to believe that Chrisí 77 total points is an ESL record. Do the math, there were three points total that he did not get for 2017. And while that is impressive and might be a bit daunting (Caps could have a lot of fun with that line), take comfort in the fact that a vast majority of Chrisí roster is gone for 2018 including our final Astro holdoutóGeorge Springer. Rick, who held on for 4th place, already feels that 2018 will be his year and might need to change his team name to something that puts Trea Turner on the plateau he so richly deserves. (Believe it or not, I think he has Puig for another year!) Menage a Trea works for me.

Speed will be available in next springís draft since both Dee Gordon and Billy Hamilton are back in. Rick should bid on both of them.

Caps gets the first pick in the reserve draft and hopefully takes next yearís Cody Bellinger instead of next yearís Lewis Brinson. Maybe Brinson will be traded back to an American League team now that the Brewers have a ton of outfield depth. Iím a genius.

Marty finished in second place but heís going to need to plug the holes left by Giancarlo and Charlie Blackmon (Geez, the 2018 draft is looking deep already).
The Chuck N Ducks registered their highest finish ever by coming in third based almost solely on a pitching staff that Chucked but rarely Ducked. Like the two owners above him, heís going to have to replace some valuable pieces in Tommy Pham and Ender Inciarte (more speed in the draft).

Rick finished 4th and can actually extend Trea Turner for 51 years according to my long division, but he would have to get rid of Puig and any other player who was not $1.

Dale finished 5th, denying me a shot at a payday. (My wife already likes him better than me.) My hunch is that the 43 points for 5th place is one of the lowest point totals ever for a money position but that is a byproduct of a team finishing with 77 points! He loses Tony Two Bags for 2018 (again, a hanging curveball for Caps). Also guessing that he cuts ties with Starling ďJust Say NoĒ Marte (more speed in the 2018 draft).

Blair has Rhys Hoskins so nothing else in the world matters. Get that man a bobblehead!

Robbie has Scooter Gennett (.295, 27 homers and 97 RBIs). How on earth did that happen? Perhaps what is more impressive is that Robbie kept him.

[Payouts] will be mailed after I get to the bank and field another round of questions as to why I never win. Itís great fun. Really.

I assume all owners will be returning for 2018, but if that changes please let me know and Iíll laugh at you for thinking that decision is yours.
 
Rick went back to Virginia with a $29 K-Rod, and a $26 Corey Hart...and a $20 Jason Bartlett?

ESL TRADING RULES:

Between Draft Day and noon on August 31st, teams may accept only TWO "asterisk" players total and those must be from different teams.  On the flip-side, a team may trade AWAY as many "asterisk" players as they like (but no two "asterisk" players to the same team.)  "Asterisk" players are any players auction drafted for $20 or over, any players FAAB drafted for $60 or over, players of any salary in the final year of their contract, and players traded to the A.L.

 
Each team is allowed one "asterisk for asterisk" trade during the season. The trade is only one asterisk for one asterisk and other players cannot be involved in the trade. This trade can be utilized at any point in the season up until the trade deadline. The intent of the rule is to allow fair trades. Again, it is simply one asterisk player for one asterisk player. It is not two or three asterisks for two or three asterisks and no other players (or rookies) can be included in the trade.  This trade does not count against a teamís limit of two asterisk trades. However, you may not make two trades involving asterisk players within 30 days.  In other words, if you make your asterisk-for-asterisk trade with 1 team, you made not make one of your two asterisk-dump-trades with that same team unless you first wait 30 days. Friday after the All-Star Game, 12:01 p.m. thru noon August 31st:  Restricted trading, you may trade with any team +/- 5 points in the standings (based on the most up to date standings on the front page of the All-Star Stats web-site.  "Live" standings will not count, as there will be no way to verify it later.)  Also during this period, teams with less than 40 points and not in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th place will also be able to continue trading with each other.  The asterisk rules will apply during this period.

Between 12:01 p.m. on August 31st thru the end of the regular season:
  NO trading what-so-ever.
