Last minute, but we should be able to get this thrown together in time.

Please make suggestions for time and date of the draft later this week. Sunday night, the 23rd, is obviously the absolute latest we could draft.

Just tossing this out there as an initial proposal — Wednesday night draft, maybe 9 p.m. EST. I realize we have to accommodate BloodBrother, who is on the West Coast.

That works for me.

Giantsfan1080 03-23-2014 06:57 PM

Wed at 9 works for me as well.

Hines 03-23-2014 07:15 PM

I work nights, so that wouldn't be great for me. Thursday at the same time would be better for me, since I only work 4 days this week.

Xiomera 03-23-2014 07:16 PM

Anyone object to Thursday at 9 p.m.?

Giantsfan1080 03-23-2014 07:39 PM

I believe that works for me also.

Xiomera 03-23-2014 07:48 PM

Hines, we will aim for Thursday, but it anyone objects, it'll be difficult to accommodate you.

BloodBrother 03-23-2014 09:00 PM

Thursday 9 PM EST? That would work for me

Xiomera 03-23-2014 09:25 PM

Fenikz is our 7th and final member.

BloodBrother 03-23-2014 09:38 PM

Never done AL or NL only league, so it should be fun to do something new

Xiomera 03-23-2014 09:38 PM

Everyone please check out the settings.

5x5 Roto scoring with OBP in place of the traditional AVG. That much I am not open to changing. I don't want to be progressive, stubborn as it may be.

Xiomera 03-23-2014 09:41 PM

My main question:

Is there interest in making this a potential keeper league or do we want to play for 2014 only?

I'm always in favor of a keeper league, but the trouble of maintaining full participation and interest among every member always seems to crop up when I launch a league. Thoughts?

Brodeur 03-23-2014 09:52 PM

I'm fine with whatever.

BloodBrother 03-23-2014 09:54 PM

5x5 cats look fine

if it's keeper, how many are we talking? With 7 teams, would we be looking at a higher # of keepers or what?

Xiomera 03-23-2014 09:54 PM

IF it's a keeper league, I'd still only want between 4 and 7 keepers each. Just enough to retain a core of players.

EDIT: This won't be a league where prospects are all that relevant regardless. I want everyone focused on winning in the present to make it as competitive as possible.

BloodBrother 03-23-2014 10:00 PM

5-6 should be good enough

what's the NA spot for? Is that for a prospect or something? Or just more flexibility for when players go on bereavement list or something and miss some games and you can just put them on NA and add a player to fill in for the time being

Xiomera 03-23-2014 10:01 PM

You've got it right, Blood. NA slot serves both those purposes. I like that Yahoo allows for that. ESPN doesn't have it.

BloodBrother 03-23-2014 10:17 PM

Same. Good addition to things

Hines 03-24-2014 06:25 AM

It's not a big deal, but I feel like if we have 4 RPs, we should have holds as a category. If no one else wants it, that's fine though.

I see your point, but there's no way I'm giving holds as much weight in the scoring as home runs, which is what I'd have to do in Roto scoring.

Giantsfan1080 03-24-2014 09:47 AM

Im fine with anything.

KCJ58 03-24-2014 10:16 AM

I'll be in if you got room for me, if not it's fine.
