A couple of years ago, we implemented a new keepers format of 4-5-6-7-8-7-6-5-4, etc. Since we've done 4 & 5, the # this year should be:

6 Keepers Per Team

(7 for last year's Champ - Congratulations to Madpuck!)

I set up a live draft in Yahoo, the date and time can definitely be changed so hopefully we can find one that works for everyone. Really hope everyone's back this year as well.

*** If everyone is interested, we could consider changing the draft to an auction format. Let us know if that interests you. For now, it's set as a regular live draft.

TENTATIVE DRAFT TIME

Sunday, March 25
8:00pm EST

Date works for me. Not interested in an auction type league. But if you decide to just find a replacement.

Aaron judge, max Scherzer, Chapman, andrus, Hamilton, serevino, gennettI vote to kick MP out of the league for this.

Some capitalized first names, some capitalized last names... some only a last name... and some of those are capitalized and some aren't.

Have some dignity man!!

All keepers are in except for Metalleaf. Sent him several pm's and emails, hopefully he replies soon.

Also wanted to discuss the # of IR slots in this league. Having 2 spots got ridiculous last season. With the new 10-day DL option, teams were using it way more frequently and it got pretty silly at times with half the team on the IR.

IMO we need to up the # from 2 - question is what is the right number, any ideas? I'd say anywhere from a min of 3 to max of 5 maybe?

Since Baumgarner is injured, can I change him to Rhys Hoskins?

I don't even think Metal is around here anymore is he?

Habspatrol
03-24-2018, 12:35 PM
Yeah I'd prefer like 5 DL spots at least.

Not sure but he still isn't responding. It's very ****ing frustrating. I guess we could try to find a replacement, but that is proving to be difficult in the other league.

Any ideas?

4 DL's

Don't delay the draft. Keep his top 6 players and put him on autopilot tonight.
He had enough time to contact you.

03-25-2018, 02:08 PM
Yeah, if it's a ghost team all season, so be it.

axlsalinger
03-25-2018, 02:10 PM
Agreed, Metal is definitely out and we can continue to try and find a replacement today but the draft will happen. I think 4 IR sounds about right, definitely could be 3 or 5 but that seems fair.

4 is fine

I guess the other option is we could just contract down to 11 teams.

Also I've never been a big fan of having just 9 Pitcher spots. Maybe 3 SP, 3 RP, and 3 P?

I HATE the 9 pitcher spots.

No holds league though, so some teams may only have 3 RP.

axlsalinger
03-25-2018, 03:08 PM
Metal has 5 obvious keepers:

G. Stanton
A. Rizzo
J. Ramirez
A. Rendon
C. Martinez

Who should be #6?

Buster Posey
Jean Segura
Jose Berrios
Jon Lester

Habspatrol
03-25-2018, 03:14 PM
I say Berrios or Lester. That leaves a good catcher for an actual team.

axlsalinger
03-25-2018, 03:31 PM
What do you think about contracting down to 11 for this season? I don't love it but having a ghost team isn't any better.

Habspatrol
03-25-2018, 03:37 PM
I think I prefer a ghost team with the chance of finding someone to take over. I mean we always end up with a ghost team or two anyway.

Thing with contracting right now... the top few draft picks are going to be ridiculous.

That said... I don't care that much. Either way is fine.

It's not head to head so I see no issue

Yeah, it is a tough call. I guess we'll leave it as is. Berrios or Lester?

Habspatrol
03-25-2018, 03:41 PM
The more I think about it... maybe lets contract. That seemed to be yours and MP's preference.

Maybe give it a year then contract instead of rushed in a few hours

Both choices are basically even, it's a tough one. Keeping it at 12 makes it a little easier to find a new manager next year, but we could add a 12th expansion team easily enough. For this season, 11 is probably slightly better. I guess there's also the possibility that we find somebody at the last minute, but are running out of time.

I guess I'll send out an email to see if we can get a couple of other opinions (quickly), then make the decision.

I posted the opening on the Leafs board, maybe one of you guys can post it on the Habs board. Let's try to fill the spot if possible. If not, we'll decide this afternoon on contraction vs. ghost team.

Heads up that we have a new manager. Thanks to Matrim for stepping up. We're ready to go for the draft tonight.

Hi guys, I'm taking over the team. I'll keep:

Stanton

See you at the draft.
