Ultimate American League Challenge 2015 Auction Results

Indians at Orioles June 30, 2012
Indians at Orioles June 30, 2012

Paul Sporer of Baseball Prospectus (Texas Twisters) selected Michael Brantley with the third pick of the second round. Big things are expected of the talented Cleveland outfielder this season.

This league was run via the CBS Sports league manager up through 2014, so most of the league history is not publicly viewable (It was established in 2003!). It’s a ten-team AL-only league utilizing a snake draft. The scoring system is awesome. It’s head-to-head points, with all the typical Roto stats covered but also a hitting slant towards total bases, runs produced, and batting eye (BB:K) and a pitching slant that includes holds, giving middle relievers added value. The top four teams make the playoffs (two week Semi-Finals, two week Finals). We run FAAB at 11 am on Saturdays so you can see the results to prepare for your own Sunday night FAAB (and also 11 am on Mondays in case of any Saturday or Sunday injuries).

Participants in draft order:

  1. Daniel Dobish, RotoExperts (Cleveland Spiders)
  2. John Dunfee, Independent (Detroit Autobots)
  3. Scott Swanay, Fantasy Baseball Sherpa (New York Minutes)
  4. Jon Williams, Advanced Fantasy Baseball (Kansas City Blues)
  5. Eric Stashin, RotoProfessor (Baltimore Crabs)
  6. Dean Peterson, STATS (Chi-Town Crooks)
  7. Randall Dean, eXpertLeagues (Houston Strohs)
  8. Paul Sporer, Baseball Prospectus (Texas Twisters)
  9. Don Visco, Independent (Los Angeles Dons)
  10. Jeremy Teirmini, RotoProfessor & eXpertLeagues (Boston Chowderheads)
