Baseball Dynasty Keeper League (Thoughts?)(Posted by dgtiger3 on 4/6/13 at 3:46 pm)
A few of us realized we were kinda bored with just our one normal 14 team league we have been doing for years and wanted to come up with a Fantasy Baseball League for our biggest baseball nerd friends. So we have actually decided to put together a Dynasty League that I have got a few ideas from various leagues I have read about.
Here is our setup.
10 Guys ($75 Entry Fee) each guy gets two teams a Major and Minor League roster (The Minor League team consists of Major League players.)Your two teams would compete in completely separate divisions.
Payouts: Majors 1st-$300 2nd-$200 3rd-$100
Minors 1st-$100 2nd-$50
The rosters would be considered small 20 players
9 Hitters (C,1B,2B,3B,SS,OF,OF,OF,UTIL)
8 Pitchers (SP,SP,SP,SP,SP,RP,RP,RP)
There are restrictions on moving players from the Majors to Minors, If you demote someone they go on a 48 hour waiver wire before being placed on your minor league roster (The only exception being if you promoted a player to replace a player on the DL). Each organization has a salary cap they must stay under so if they claim a player from waivers they have to take on his salary.
Players value is determined by their draft position (Top 10)-$40 (11-20) $33 (21-30) $27 so everyone will start the season with the same payroll.
A Keepers value is determined by the market, it is an average of what you paid them last year and what ESPN ranks them the upcoming season. So if you took Mike Trout last year after the 24th round you paid $1 and he is considered a Top 10 player according to ESPN's 2013 Draft Sheet which would make him worth $40 so $21 to keep him.
Each Organization will also hold rights to 5 Minor League prospects, which must be placed on your Minor League roster within a week of them being promoted to the actual Big Leagues.
Thoughts? (other than TLDR).
