I was thinking, since I currently only have one fantasy baseball team ATM I'd like another one. The one I have now is in BF_51's AL only dynasty league, so I got the bright idea to completely rip his idea off, and make a NL-Only dynasty league with all the same parameters.

Looking for 7-9 other guys, will be an auction league, I'll post everything you need to know. If you are interested, post in this thread.


What you need to know:

-ESPN
-Auction (260 bucks)
-FAAB system
-Dynasty League (15 keepers + minor league roster)
-Total points scoring system
-4 man minor league roster
-20 man major league rosters (+ 2 DL spots)

Teams:
1. Team CCB
2. Team GF1080
3. Team PL
4. Team Jughead
5. Team D-Unit
6. Team KCJ
7. Team 619
8. Team tjsunstein
9. Team Hineswardjr
10. Team GPNGC

(I'll probably stick to 8 teams since it's NL only, but 10 is a possibility if there is enough interest)

Roster:
1 C
1 1B
1 2B
1 SS
1 3B
3 OF
2 UTIL
7 P
3 Bench

Scoring:

Batting:
Total Bases (TB) 1
Walks (BB) 1
Runs Scored (R) 1
Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 1
Strikeouts (K) -1

Pitching:
Innings Pitched (IP) 3
Earned Runs (ER) -2
Wins (W) 3
Quality Starts (QS) 4
Saves (SV) 6
Strikeouts (K) 1
Hits Allowed (H) -1
Walks Issued (BB) -1
Holds (HD) 3


Nothing is set in stone, so any issues with any of the parameters let me know and we can work it out.

Yeah, I'll do it too. Have always wanted to do a league only fantasy league. Would have rather done AL, but NL I guess is just as good. 2 more teams to choose from.

Some questions before the draft regarding minor league players.

If we draft a minor league player and he does NOT make the opening day roster we have to drop him, correct?

How will the minor league draft order be determined and when will it take place?

If a player on my minor league team gets called up and then later sent back down, can I "drop" him back down to my minor league team and retain his rights?

Finally, the minor league roster is not something we can keep track of on ESPN, right? We need to keep track of it somewhere, like this thread.

EDIT: More questions, but I need them answered please.

How many keepers do we get each year?

Is there a limit to how many years we can keep a player?

There will be a separate thread for the minor league draft once the regular season begins. We will keep track of the MiL rosters there.

EDIT: More questions, but I need them answered please.

How many keepers do we get each year? 15

Is there a limit to how many years we can keep a player? No limit.

1- Rosters are daily or weekly?

2- Why is an IP worth 9 points? Good starting pitchers score around 2000 points in that format and Pujols had 700 last year using that scoring.

2- Why is an IP worth 9 points? Good starting pitchers score around 2000 points in that format and Pujols had 700 last year using that scoring. I'm guessing that's a mistake. I believe it's supposed to be worth 3 points if you check back to the first post of this thread.

I'll answer.

"Your Auction Draft has not yet been scheduled."

HUH? Are we doing this today or not?

1. I think I have it as weekly, I'll check.

2. I had it set as 3 per IP, but ESPN scores that as 3 points per out a pitcher records, so that would mean max would be 9 pts per IP. I didn't realize that, so I put it down to 1 per out, so I pitcher can earn 3 points per IP.

on a separate note...


GF1080 never joined so I'm going to see if I can find a quick replacement so we can still draft today.

I have to work at 3:00, but I should be able to draft at least 80%-90% of my team before I have to go. I'm going to go shower and eat lunch now, so I'll have close to a full two hours to draft.

Well, we can't get a draft time today, so we can either try and draft sometime during the week or next weekend.

Commie, I know you said you had a bunch of leagues already so if you want to be removed from the league I can do that for you, either way I appreciate you stepping up and trying to save the scheduled draft time for us.

I just went to start a new league on ESPN and you can make the draft time 1:30 pm. Why can't we just do that if we've found a tenth player?

Giantsfan1080
03-07-2010, 12:17 PM
Don't everyone blame me. You can't set the draft the day before on a Saturday no less and expect everyone to know. You really can't do it when I specifically said the other I'm going to be gone all day Saturday. Not my fault.

gpngc
03-07-2010, 12:19 PM
I just don't understand why we can't draft right now.

^He's obviously here and everyone else expected it to be at 1:00 pm ET.

Unless ESPN won't allow him to make the draft time at 1:30 - but I was able to create a league and make the draft time at that time so I'm assuming he can too...

?????????????????????

I'm not blaming you for anything, BUT I did send the invites out ahead of time and you were the only one who didn't join. If you had of joined, I could of had the draft scheduled, and we would of been able to draft now. But like I said I'm not looking to point any fingers, the draft didn't happen today, it's not the end of the world there's plenty of time before the season starts.

I don't even think I'm in the league anymore.

You're still in if you want to be, only reason you were replaced was because you were the only unjoined member and it looked like majority of the league was going to be present for the 1 pm draft time.

I just don't understand why we can't draft right now.

Couldn't get draft times for Tues, Weds, or Thurs, so I just made it Sunday at 1 pm.

GNPGC- Only 3 bench spots because I am using the same parameters as BF's AL only league. I'm in both leagues and I the roster size to be the same for each.

Giantsfan1080

As long as Heyward makes the big league club (which I'm confident he will) then I am loving my core players. It's definitely geared towards the future, and I do have some work to do, but I think I can do well.

I currently don't have a closer. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a points league, therefore I don't technically need a closer as I obviously would in a roto league. Still, I'll probably need a couple down the line when I can scoop 'em off FA cheap.

No you don't. There is a limit of 200 GS but that is pretty high. You might want to add one reliever eventually to keep yourself from going over 200 GS, but other than that it doesn't matter. I did not draft a closer either, but I took two set-up who are in line to close should their team's current closer falter.

Ok so how does this draft work?

Ok so how does this draft work?

Only prospects unavailable are the ones who were selected in the initial draft AND made their 25 man rosters (for example: Jason Heyward is unavailable, but Stephen Strasburg IS available)

You are allowed to hold 4 prospects (we will keep track of them in the prospect thread) You can keep them as long as you want if they are in your prospect list, once they graduate to the Majors, you can move them to your rosters BUT you will need to drop someone in place of them.

Here's an example of how it will work.


We have our prospect draft I end up with:

1. Cartman
2. Kyle
3. Stan
4. Kenny

Come may, Cartman moves up to his MLB teams roster, so now I can move him to my regular team, but I have to drop someone from my roster to do so.

As long as they are on your prospect list you may keep them separate from your 15 regular team keepers BUT if your prospect graduates you must add him to your 15 keepers if you want to keep him.

So say.......Cartman and Kyle graduate. You will carry Stan and Kenny over into the next season on your prospect list, and when the preseason draft comes around you will only be making 2 picks, as opposed to 4. Unless you want to drop Stan and/or Kenny, then you would pick 4 new prospects.

For those who are also in BF_51's league, he may be doing things slightly different but I think this is how I am going to handle this.

ccB
04-03-2010, 04:45 PM
Ok back to the example of Mejia. Not drafted. But looks like definitely made the team. Can he be drafted?

Yes, Jenrry can be drafted, but if he makes the MLB team you can't keep him on your prospect list, someone must be dropped in place of him, and the player you drop CANNOT be added to your prospect list.

But I am thinking of making it so if your player gets called up, and gets sent back down, and you have an open prospect spot you can add him back to your prospect list.

You also CANNOT add prospects during the season to stash away on your prospect list, if you have a spot that is freed up.

For example:

Meijia makes the Mets 25 man, you move him from your prospect list to regular team roster, you CANNOT add the player you drop to your prospect list, and you CANNOT add another prospect to your prospect list from the waiver wire.


BUT let's say Meija makes the team, falls on his face, and is sent down, you can add him back to your prospect list. But you can only do this if it's a player you drafted during the prospect draft.

If a guy comes up, you have to drop someone off your regular team roster to make room for them. If they are sent back down you can put them back on your prospect list. But if they are on your regular team roster by the end of the year, you MUST count them in your 15 keepers, if you want to keep them that is.

BF changed his league to 12 keepers. Is that something we will do here?

Also, was it always the intent to just have 3 bench players? BF's league has 5. Should we extend the draft manually here for 3 more rounds? We could go in reverse order of the Minor League draft. I think that would be fair if you wanted to do that.

No, I'd rather not have any major league players drafted during the minor league draft. Unless it's a case like Mike Leake who wasn't expected to make the team.

Initially it wasn't my intention to allow FA signings just because I was going along with how BF's is being ran, but I wanted to see how the FAAB system worked so I made a signing and I guess that set off everyone elses signings.

Initially I made it so you can only add to your minor league roster through the Minor League draft. BUT I am open to input from the rest of the league so what do you guys think?

I'm thinking the only way you can add a prospect is if they graduate to the major leagues. That means you can't drop an inferior prospect for a better one, but if you have someone who graduates you can replace them on your list. The only thing is if you prospect gets sent back down you will have to drop the guy you added in place of him, you will not be allowed to drop any of your 4. How's that sound?

gpngc
04-05-2010, 04:31 PM
You should be able to always have four minor leaguers. Otherwise, when someone comes up and struggles a bit early in his career he's wasting a spot on your bench and a spot on your minor league 4-man roster.

You should be able to always have four minor leaguers. Otherwise, when someone comes up and struggles a bit early in his career he's wasting a spot on your bench and a spot on your minor league 4-man roster.

Yeah well that's part of the strategy, you shouldn't be rewarded for picking bad prospects.


Here are a couple things I am not willing to change:

You cannot drop a prospect during the season to pick up another prospect on your 4 man minor league roster.

You cannot hold minor leaguers on your regular roster.

If your player gets called up, and sent back down, you must add him back to your 4 man. So if we are making additions to our 4 man after a prospect graduates you must drop the prospect you added in place of the prospect who is being demoted.


For example: If Buster Posey gets called up, I add John Doe to my 4 man. Say Posey gets demoted back to AAA, I MUST drop John Doe in place of him, I can't pick whoevers doing the worst and drop them, it must be the player you added in place of graduating player.




So we can either do it this way, or no additions, what do you guys think?

^ That way is best.

So now after this season I have four minor league players. What happens in next years minor league draft? In order to keep those players I must use four of the 12 keeper spots? And if I use say one keeper spot on a minor leaguer I then have three selections in the minor league draft?

ccB
04-05-2010, 04:45 PM
Well if we do it this way the minor league draft will be taken away because we will all have our 4-man rosters consistently filled. That was another reason I was hesistant on allowing adding and dropping of prospects.

D-Unit
04-05-2010, 05:00 PM
I don't know if I like the idea of not being able to freely add/drop to your 4 minor leaguer list. It's like that on the ESPN site with our major leaguers, and not like that in fantasy sports in general. Can you imagine playing fantasy baseball based off your draft at the beginning of the year?

It's still a strategy to manage your 4 player list. If a guy gets called up and sent back down, I agree that you have to put him on your minor league list or drop him. But I think you should be able to decide which minor leaguer you want to drop in order for him to take that spot. Otherwise, I think some of us will just opt to keep some empty minor league roster spots.

How do we add minor leaguers in the future? Only when one of our guys gets called up? If so, then would it be a strategy to pass our turn in the draft in order to keep some of our minor league spots open for the future?

Then if so, what happens if there are 2 or more people with empty minor league spots, but they all want the same minor league player?

The way I see it is, those 4 additional keepers are a luxury, if you miss you miss, but if you hit on a guy and he gets moved up, you are rewarded by adding another player.

We add minor leaguers as our prospects develop. If two guys are trying to add the same player we will have a waiver system (reverse minor league draft order ie: KCJ gets 1st priority, HWJ gets 2nd etc.)

Maybe we can have a once a month draft to fill any open minor league roster spots?

I'm open to any and all ideas right now.

I mean if a post is made here to stake claim, then there can be no tie. First post, first dibs.

I guess the key is to have an empty minor league spot. I'll probably pass on my last draft pick, since that's the case.

BF's system seems easy to play/manage. Just saying.

I don't really care.

Just make sure when the rules are set in stone you post them somewhere and make us aware (bold them, PM, whatever).

Drew Storen completely slipped my mind. Nice pick, D.

You gotta make a pick D, stop looking for loopholes. I was doing it this way because I was trying to avoid having a never ending rotation of minor league players just to see who's going to stick and who's not. I thought it would be more fun tracking our minor league players if we couldn't just switch them in and out as we pleased. I'm not trying to trick anyone, and I'd hope no one takes advantage of an unanswered question.


So this is how I'm doing it...

You must always have 4 guys on your minor league roster...

You can graduate players when they are called up...

You can add players to your Minor League roster when you have an open space...

When you add a player, post it in the minor league thread. Once a week (Sunday at 12 pm) I will adjust minor league rosters, if two people have a claim in on the same player we will use the waiver system (reverse order of the minor league draft) to decide who gets them.

Ok so those are the unchangeable rules I'm implementing.

This is an idea I'd be willing to do if you guys like it:

On the 1st of each month, we will have a mini prospect swap meet. If you want to dump prospects for other prospects this will be your opportunity. The draft order for each prospect draft will be the waiver wire order at that time. You don't have to add or release anyone if you do not want to, but this will be the only time to dump a minor leaguer.

I really wasn't trying to make this so complicated but that's how it ended up.

How does that sound? Best of both worlds.

I'm going to defend myself, and argue that the current transactions should not be taken away. I'm not in the AL Only league so I only know so much. No where on the first page of the AL Only league thread does it say anything about there not be any transactions between the draft and the minor league draft. I can't be expected to read every single post in that long thread to get every single rule down. Nothing of the sort was posted in this thread either. I didn't do anything that the commissioner of the league didn't do first.

Not trying to look for loopholes. I am trying to find clarity because my brain needs answers to these questions. You could still avoided the complexity of this by just adopting BF's system.

So if I interpret what you said above, then there are 2 times you can add a new minor leaguer.

1. If your guy gets called up.

2. Monthy minor league swap meet.

I think the biggest issue I have now is that if a prospect gets called up and then sent down, that we have to send him to our minor league roster. ...and since you're forcing us to always have 4, that really is going to throw a wrench in it. Especially come September call ups...

Why not just giving us the option of keeping them on our major league roster or sending them down (and then picking any minor leaguer we want to be sent down)? It hurts us by keeping them on our major league roster because they are not actively accruing points.

...those are my thoughts.

I don't believe there was any beef about that, so you don't need to worry.

PL, there are no issues, I didn't make it clear what was happening in the beginning so I wouldn't penalize you for that.

I'm just curious to see how it will all pan out between your rules being discussed, your Logan Morrison addition. You added a prospect before the minor league draft and now he got send down to the minors.

Will you put him on your minor league team and not draft a 4th player? I wish I knew we could've done that. lol.

Or is he a draftable player even now? Handled the same way our drafted minor leaguers are being treated?

I had Buster Posey and he didn't make the team. Someone took him in the draft and I believe the person who drafted him keeps him.

Don't see why he wouldn't be draftable just as Strasburg and Posey were.

Logan Morrison is available to whoever drafts him. D, I made a move early on to see how the FAAB worked, Matt Diaz a platoon OF. After I made that move PL made some moves, and I never specified we couldn't make moves so I wasn't going to penalize him for that. So once he made moves, the only fair thing to do was make it so anyone could make moves. I did however specifiy that if I player did not make their teams 25 man they are up to be drafted, so Morrison is and has been available the same as Posey, and Strasburg.

Can we also pick up another minor leaguer if one of ours gets traded to an AL system before ever making his major league debut? I would assume yes.

Ok question. I'm up in the draft now. If i take Mejia and add him to my roster when the minor league draft is over do I get to pick up another minor leaguer?

Yes you can.

Yes, as long as no one selected him in the regular draft.

This is all getting too complicated, You can add and drop prospects as you please but it will be done once a month and we will be using a waiver system.

Well then...

I definitely would've taken Mejia if I knew we were allowed to do that. Seems weird that anyone who takes a current major league player can simply stash him and then essentially get another draft pick right after they add him on ESPN...

Technically Leake isn't a major league player yet. And won't be for another 10 days or so.

You still have to drop him I believe. How does that work? Are we the ones who have to stay on top of our team and drop a player if they are sent down?

I guess after the draft is over I'll have him added to my team after I request a drop. Once that's completed I can add another minor leaguer.

You guys can go ahead and start dropping any prospects who have been drafted. We will keep track of all minor league business in the Minor League draft thread once the draft is over. I will also type out and post a detailed set of rules and regulations.

Also, gpngc, I'm sorry I didn't make the Meijia thing clear enough for you, and sorry you missed your opportunity to select him.
