The tradition of the $1 bet in the Salmon League began many moons ago between Mike and Graves as a spin-off of their NFBC $1 bets. Over the years, more and more teams have gotten in on the tradition. It has grown in prominence to the point that a portion of the draft weekend agenda is denoted for the “paying of the bets and public shaming.”

Here are the results of the 2019 bets. Be sure to bring plenty of $1 bills to pay your debts.

Long-Term Bets

Future Bet 2017-2021
Beginning in 2017 and continuing until 2021, every year that Travis’ official keepers are his “big three for the future” (aka: Giancarlo Stanton, Bryce Harper, and Jose Fernandez)…Jeremiah will pay Travis $1 on draft day. Every year that those three are NOT his keepers, Travis will pay Jeremiah $1 on draft day.
*No injury exemption
Result: Travis will continue to lose this bet, because Jose Fernandez is – as he has been for a while now – not eligible to be on a roster and he has long-since moved on from Stanton and Harper.
Winner: Graves (again)
