re: Votto is a Catcher Season Long Thread


Just to give fair warning: with ESPN, the FAAB feature blows.

Instead of players eventually going to FA's after clearing through waivers, they stay on waivers - or at least this has been my experience in my leagues on ESPN.

Or it could be I'm just a dunbass and can't figure out how to fix this.

I'll email tchamp so we can get a response. I'm pretty sure he'll be back. Not positive though.

I think Papz is in as well, but he did not officially say yes. If he says he is in, then that makes 12.

We need a response from psu2lsu and tchamp. If either decline or fail to answer, then Papps is in.

If ESPN opens tomorrow, then I intend to set up the league on Saturday.

If we end up needing people which I doubt, I don't think the Spring Training league is going to happen so some of those guys may want a spot here.

Anybody have experience with a redraft keeper league? Trying to figure out what keeper rules will keep things interesting, couldn't get the majority to go for auction style.

12, had to settle for H2H as well but we're at least paying out half the money for regular season finishes and not just playoffs.

Not sure how a straight, keep the player and lose the pick you selected that player system would work.

I'm more of a fan on having a set number of keepers so everyone keeps the same number of guy. What you could do is keep say 6-10 guys per team. Espn and CBS are the better sites for keeper leagues. Is this a inaugural season?

Yes, inaug season. We would have a set number, those seem high, we were thinking 3. Just was curious about different wrinkles based on the round you drafted your keep in.

Most of these guys are more focused on keeping next year's draft interesting so they possibly want no keepers in the top 3 rounds.

I'm fully on board for that since it looks like gyno's league isn't happening. Let's vote again!

I never understood the point of a keeper league with a snake draft... yes i can see how that would be very uninteresting for the following year's draft.

At least with more standard auction leagues you are adding cost of $3-$5 to keep the player for the following year. For example if you happen to get Zorbrist for $23; is he really worth keeping for $28(some may or some may not)?

By the way I'm not advocating keeper for this league especially any hybrid keeper rules.

I was not telling you to quit this. I just redrafts because I like the opportunity to autodraft Mike Trout because I was one minute late to the draft.
