How do you feel about my semi-bold predictions?

I almost added Dillon Gee will be serviceable but didn't want to go too bold.

That's a great GIF by the way

12-team, Keeper

$100 buy-in.

How many keepers? And how long do we get to keep them?

How many total roster spots?

How do we decide on how players are kept in an auction format - meaning if someone is bought for $5 this year, how much does he go for next year?



Not sure. I've never played one either. Would have to do some research.

Use LeagueSafe?



Sure.

I might be the commissioner if the people are okay with it.


Sure.

Also, draft probably has got to be this Sunday


Sure. Later the better.

Are we hell bent on it being an auction league?

Most already play in your standard H2H keeper league.

Id like to change it up somehow, whether it be auction, points style league, roto etc

What about it being a deep, dynasty league?

Keeping like 25 of a 30-man roster?

I agree that it does have to be unique in its own way.

Hopefully more people chime in...

I'd like auction too. The Votto league was my first one but just seems like the more fair/interesting style, especially with the keeper wrinkle. Even if the draft is a bitch.

Anyone have a problem with FAAB? I just feel that if we do an auction it should be a FAAB instead of a waiver wire.

If we have a league where we set a precedent that everyone has the same opportunity to own any player through the auction, why should that change when it comes to players on waivers?

ESPN

$125 buy in? Extra $25x 12 people would generate another $300 for pot.

12-16 Teams

Keeper Auction Draft ($260 budget)

FAAB ($100 budget- processes Sunday Nights)

Roto? H2H? Points? 2 divisions, champions meet for the title?

2 catcher league? MI and CI positions? how many roster spots?


Here's an idea, keeper wise:

quote:

We use one keeper auction format in a number of Rotowire staff keeper leagues that I think works particularly well. After a player's initial year on your roster (called his "A year"), you can elect to keep him the following season at the same price (his "B year"). After his B year, you elect to keep him for either one more season at the same price (his "C year"), after which he must be tossed back into the auction pool the following season, or you can give the player a long-term contract. For each year you extend the contract, you must increase the player's salary by $5. By example, assume I select Gonzalez at auction for $2 in 2009, and keep him for $2 in his B year in 2010. If before the 2011 season I want to extend him through 2014, I would have to pay him a total salary of $17 ($5 x 3 + $2) in each of 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. The catch is that if I decide I don't like him and cut him prior to the end of his contract, I would lose half of his salary at auction each year until the contract expired. So there are incentives to extend long-term contracts to players who are greatly below market value, but extending a player for too long can have serious consequences if he get injured or becomes ineffective.



Best thing to would be create it and then put it out there. If you build it, people will come.

To make it really unique, what you think about a 6x6 league?

QS, W's, ERA, Whip, IP and K/9

Rs, SBs, HR, RBIs, OBP and OPS

Limits the value on stringing pitchers with K/9 but doesn't emphasize relief pitching cause of IP.

Gives credit to players who walk who are not big extra base hit guys with the OBP. But also doesn't discount guys with extra base pop.

re: Anyone interested in throwing together a last minute keeper or redraft?


quote:

The addition of innings pitched is a cap-tip to one of the most increasingly appreciated skills of a pitcher during the fantasy baseball era: generating outs. Remember, innings pitched is a direct calculation of outs recorded by a pitcher, innings pitched times three equaling his number of outs recorded. A pitcher has but two goals when he's on the mound: record outs and prevent runs. Why pitchers haven't received more credit historically for their innings pitched in fantasy baseball is puzzling, but as the real game evolves, pitching staffs become more specialized and efficiency of outs recorded further drives managerial strategy, individual pitchers' innings totals will greater reflect their contributions. A quarter-century ago, in 1988, 37 pitchers totaled 215 innings or more, and 20 of them had WHIPs higher than 1.20. Last season, 12 pitchers worked at least 215 innings, and only Clayton Richard (1.23) had a WHIP higher than 1.20.




Just throwing ideas out there to make it different from other leagues.

I wouldnt get too fancy. Ws and QS are kind of redundant, as is OBP and OPS.

Id keep it somewhat simple.

QS, ERA, WHIP, k/9, Sholds

R, SB, HR, RBI, OPS

Meant Saves instead of Wins in that other post, but whatever y'all want to do.

So 5x5 H2H using these

quote:

QS, ERA, WHIP, k/9, Sholds

R, SB, HR, RBI, OPS



-----------------------------------

How about a roster size of 28, 22 of which are starters. 2 DL

1- C
1- 1B
1- 2B
1- 3B
1- SS
1- MI
1- CI
5- OF
1- UTIL
9- P

6- Bench

2- DL
------------------------------------------

re: Anyone interested in throwing together a last minute keeper or redraft?


I'm fine with that. I'm also fine with cutting out the 'extra' roster spots. If we somehow got 14 that would be like a 5 hour draft
