For the next break (assuming there is one), I think the AL/NL selections should be draftable, just like any player. I don't like that the AL & NL selections automatically go to the last two slots - no slot should be automatically given a selection. Everyone should have a chance at those selections, just like they do with any player.

Yes, it's a gamble if someone takes the AL/NL selection with the 5th pick because one doesn't know who all will be included but that adds strategy and further encourages trading. Not directing this towards anyone or blaming - just sharing a suggestion for the next one.

Totally agree the NL/AL slots should be draftable... However, I’m just happy to be involved in a 90s break

I am glad to be involved in this break first of all. Thanks for hosting it.

If this is done again as a player collector and a team collector I would recommend one of the following. First sell spots for whats left of each team after the initial player picks, Or let each player slot have an additional pick of a team after the player draft picks are done.

Agreed. I would have taken in an instant over star players.

I had brought up being able to draft AL/NL spots early in the process. I'll be keeping my spot because I think it's a desireable one to have. I think the benefit of a forum like this is that even if you draft a star and might be looking for someone in the leftover pile we generally know who people player collect so I don't expect people not be able to make a deal for who/what they want.
I think a team break like this could be a lot of fun as well, lots of different ways to handle a break like this, I think [MENTION=5670]linuxabuser[/MENTION] has done a great job and I hope it sparks more interest for someone to do another one with a different style/set up.
It's alot like fantasy baseball for me, I love draft day, I do two money leagues and we draft in person, it's one of my favorite days of the year, the season is a grind. Following this thread has been great, the actual break will be agonizing waiting for a hit that might not come.
