This should be like Kings. I win so I get to make a rule.

So long as same rules apply in your league ... http://draftcountdown.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

Don't you have to win three times in a row to make a rule?

Can we not go back and look at transactions from the year before? I know you can do it in yahoo football dynasty leagues, but I can't seem to find the link to do it in this league.

I looked in a lot of places also and couldn't find it either. The Record Book though stated that we won't be able to see information until the season starts so maybe it'll be like that for the transaction history also.

That stinks. I know D-Unit and I made a late trade and I forget what it was. Also at some point I dropped Adam Wainwright and I wish I didn't at this point. Curious to see why I was forced to drop him after stashing him on my DL for most of the season.

I thought HChu (now Yo's team) owned Wainwright all of last season after keeping him from a previous year.

Maybe I'm mistaken.

How many keepers are we at? How long is this expected to go?

After the league vote we had last year, the average came out to 12 keepers.

So that's what it is. You can enter them into Yahoo whenever you want. They can be changed up until the draft. They don't lock in, so I'd encourage people to start making designations.


As for how long the league will last? Well, this is year 8 of the league overall and year 3 of this current dynasty arrangement. At some point I'd like to re-draft, but I think we're 2+ seasons away from that.

I never trade raped you. You got the better deals from me. The ones that would've helped me more all got vetoed. People don't mind me getting raped in trades, but they sure as hell don't want me coming out on top, that's for damn sure.

You've never been raped in a trade for reasons other than a player unexpectedly got hurt or something. Perhaps elsewhere, but not in a trade.

Nah, seriously though... I bet everyone is having tough decisions on who to keep. I don't know myself whether to keep or drop a lot of my guys. ...and whether I keep them or drop them is irrlevant to what I think other guys are doing. Am I going to keep an extra closer because everyone else is keeping theirs or am I going to drop that closer because everyone else dropping theirs? I think it doesn't matter. Just keeping BPA is what matters and that's irrelevant of what other teams are doing.

Just so we're clear, I reserve the right to pick your keepers for you if you don't declare them before that stated draft start time. I recognize the draft will be a slow and drawn out process, so there's no sense in delaying the start time because of keepers.

I posted the keeper deadline notice two weeks ago.

Basically it's for archiving and to keep a clearer record of the league's past seasons.

We didn't do this last year, and see how the draft results appear from last year: http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/archive/mlb/2011/46333/draftresults

Something tells me GF didn't take Jason Bay in round one as this indicates.

But I drafted Joe Mauer 4th or 3rd overall I believe, and now I list him as an 8th rounder. Haha.

Taking Jason Bay in round 1 would be just as dumb as paying him 66 million dollars.

You guys are crazier than me in past years when it comes to closers.

Haha. Closers can always be had if you're on top of your **** and are quick to the waiver wire.

Yeah except I don't have a smart phone with ESPN updates and **** so I'm always late.

My phone doesn't even have internet. I only have it so my wife can call and tell me **** I need to pick up.

Damn. Didn't realize Chris Perez was available either. I wanted 4 closers.

I took Ortiz first cause I was either gonna take farnsworth or Perez whoever you didn't take

I've sent far too many texts. This will not continue for the rest of the draft.

I'll put a damn clock in place.

All these damn closers went. I figured I would take the last available with a "locked down" job. No matter how terrible that team will be.

I wanted to take Myers with my last 2 picks, but I got burned with Brandon Lyon as the Astros closer last year and Myers has surrendered runs in all 3 spring appearances so far.

I am baffled by this draft on a number of levels.

D apparently wants to win the saves category by 50.

I hear ya. I don't really want him either. But he was the last closer left I believe. There are still plenty of starters and other positions available.

I'm surprised that four teams don't have catchers from what I can tell.

Kipnis. Although I was happy with Espinosa. I just wanted to get one of them. But when Kipnis was taken right after me, I was worried Espinosa might not make it back around.

PLEASE check in on this draft tomorrow, folks. Please establish a sense of who you want with upcoming picks in advance.

You can leave me your list. You can make it relatively short if you want so long as you're available to reply to a text if I need another name.

He also had the worst season of his career by far. I think he is being rated too low because of that season and people are overlooking his previous seasons.
