Those players plus all of the other team's non-keepers, so a lot more than just those.

What Tyson said. Had 16 teams, lost 6. Those are the 6 rosters of the teams we lost.

Have gotten responses from 7 out of 10 to the pm I sent. Really need the other 3 answers cause we have a couple close votes that could swing either way.

One member wanted 6 keepers, plus the 4 minors. I have said this a couple of times, but I want to be clear. When I said 6 keepers, I meant 6 keepers total between all your major and minor players. We can't have the separation anymore. If you thought you could keep all your minors, then we need to say 10 keepers this year, and u keep any 10 u want. I believe I only have 3 minors players currently and I know there were other teams last year that didn't carry a full roster of minors. Just want to make sure everyone understood it the same way

Sh*t, no idea why I thought this was a 12 teamer. Thanks for clearing that up.

Now that's cleared up, lindros, my response on team numbers changes to reflect the original number of teams in the league. I answered thinking this was 12 teamer. I'm fine with 12 or 14 teams.

Keep this season at 6 keepers total and give the new managers 6 rounds to themselves before the rest pick. If we up the keepers to much before the draft this season, I think it puts the new managers at too large of a disadvantage. We can increase it going into the following season.

I do not agree with this at all. The win is a terrible stat that shows nothing of how the pitcher threw. The 3 points have been for getting outs. I think it needs to stay that way, especially for relievers, etc. Now, if you are really worried about the wins, maybe up it to 5 points, but no way that it should be worth 7 innings of ball. I really don't think we need to change our stats at all. They have been good for two years.

I see that. You are correct. Personally, I wish there was a better way to score a pitchers performance without points for a win or just innings pitched but you are correct with the current scoring. I have a certain view on streaming, but limiting transactions should keep the spirit of the game solid without having to change the scoring.

all right guys, PM's have been sent to everybody. we are at 14 teams. we will have 2 divisions of 7 teams. Once i have the other teams in, I will random the teams and post the divisions in the thread. Playoff format will remain the same as we have had. Top 6 (3 each division) make playoffs. Top seeds will have 1st round bye. playoffs are 1 week scoring periods.

we need to discuss payment and payout options next. we can do it by paypal or I can set up a payment through leaguesafe.com. they charge a fee so I believe it would be $51.50. Paypal I would wait for everyone's payment, then withdraw it and hold till the end of the year.

Do we want to keep the same payouts?? we would have $700 with 14 teams
Could look something like this -

$5 x 22 weekly winners =110
American Division winner - 50
Nations Division winner - 50
Total points scored - 50
#1 - 250
#2 - 140
#3 - 50

something has to give because we have $100 less in the pool this year dropping to 14 teams.

Post what you think!!

I'm with you on that one. doing $10 a week like past years would cut into the prize pool to much. I put down $5 a week, but I didn't like it as I was typing it.

MY KEEPERS

Prince Fielder, Tex 1B
Giancarlo Stanton, Mia RF
Matt Carpenter, StL 2B
Julio Teheran, Atl SP
Jeff Samardzija, ChC SP
Jon Lester, Bos SP

to the 10 guys from last year, you can go to the keeper tab on your espn page and check 6 and save it. i see a few have already done this. once we have them all in. i will update the rosters show it shows only our 6 keepers. That way our 4 new members will be able to use the list of free agents when they do there draft.

I like...

AL winner- 50.00
NL winner- 50.00

1st place- 350
2nd place- 200
3rd place- 50


Also set my keepers just now...

So are we voting on how the draft will be again? Snake, reverse, or let the worse team last year get the first pick each round like last year?

Im a bit confused y some of this stuff wasdnt decided before the year

These rules going foward should b set in stone

As for reverse/snake

Clearly the winners and top guys will want snake will me and the other guys would want a regular draft...

It was reverse of the standings, but I think that's kind of tough to do losing 6 teams. We will have a vote. It has been a 1,2,3 draft. But again, that was because it was based on last year standings

Ok i understand

Just an idea i do for my football keeper league

First year (this year) fee would be 65$$

Next year 50$$

Next year 35$$

So total is 150$$ but people are motivated to stay all 3 years and not lose 15 bucks

50 goes into the pot each year

Just an idea
Flawed but up to u
Could be to a lesser extent also

Like 60 50 40

this league as been has been and will remain 1,2,3, (non-snake) draft based on the previous year final standings.

issue was last year, that something was changed at the all star break, and it f'ed everyones points up, so I can look back and see record but nothing else was right. there were 2 or 3 ties with the record, so i have no way of breaking the ties for draft order.

last years playoff finished as follows:

#1 jwalker #2 lindros810 #3dacubs(GONE) #4chitty #5 coolasbrees(gone) #6 fungi

after that, its anyones guess. not sure what is the best way is to handle it.

i think keeping the first two or three rounds in reverse standings, then a snake the rest of the way is pretty fair, but i am good however we go

but where do the new teams teams fit in??? how do I break ties with other teams still in it from last year?? I would be willing if Jwalker is, for me and him to take the last 2 draft spots, then random everybody else into a 1-12 to set the draft order. i'm not really sure if that's fair to everyone else??
