    I liked the roster set up last year but i'm open to change.

    Apart from that I agree with everything else you suggested. I'm available any of those nights too for draft

    Draft date: The Sunday is definitely the best date for me of the three.

    Roster: If we have fewer players/teams it's probably good to expand the roster size. Exactly how we do that I don't have an opinion on.

    Categories: Again, don't really have a strong opinion on this, though if we're going to add any, I think only add one for pitchers and one for hitters. There's no need to change things too much.

    Sunday suits me the best as well.
    Monday - Ok-ish
    Tuesday - Out

    with regards to extra categories, how about something negative for the batters like Ks or Errors....just to keep it interesting...

    I'm not sure what is meant by IF, CIF and MIF (well I know what IF meant, but not the other 2)

    /////////////////////////////////////////
    Draft Date:
    Sunday, 25th

    Max Aquisitions:
    9!

    Min Innings pitched:
    25 sounds good to me. Less chance of sitting pitchers!

    Batters Catagories:
    OBP, Ks or Errors

    Pitcher Catagories:
    Holds. I think it makes more pitchers worth something and forces people to study the middle innings more.

    Roster Make Up:
    An extra pitcher.

    Draft Date: Sunday 25th

    Max Aquisitions: 7

    Min Innings pitched: 25

    Batters Categories: OBP

    Pitcher Categories: K/BB

    Roster Make Up: No strong feelings
    I'm not sure what is meant by IF, CIF and MIF (well I know what IF meant, but not the other 2)

    Corner Infielder (1B, 3B) and Middle Infielder (2B, SS)

    Sorry lads, by max. acquisitions I meant adds per week. If we add holds or increase number of innings pitched, then I thought we might want to increase the number of adds per week to 10.

    I would rather keep the number of keepers at 6. But if everyone wants to increase this, then fine.

    Right here goes:

    Draft Date: Sunday 25th of March at 9PM

    Kepper Date: Saturday 24th

    Added OBP for Batters and Holds for Pitchers to make it a 6x6 league.

    Increased weekly aquisitions to 10 and min. innings pitched to 25.

    I decided to lave the rest of the rosters as is.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus


    The changes look good to me.

    Just 6 keepers, gonna to tough to to wittle the squad down. At the moment only 2 of mine are certain. Are the keepers revealed after the deadline passes? Would be good to know who is available in the draft after the keeper decisions have been made :)

    Keep them hidden! It will add to the drama ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,181 ✭✭✭Iang87


    Oh i am excited


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,351 ✭✭✭✭8-10


    Will/can the draft work that whoever finished last last year gets first pick and the overall winner last year picks last? And then move forward like that?

    Or is it random?

    Also where did we fall on keepers? It was 6 but then I thought it increased to 8, now it seems to be 6 again. Can we not just meet in the middle and have 7 or something?

    Hey guys,

    I want a few clarifications as well like 8-10.

    So how does this work?

    We have (maybe) 6 keepers. So does drafting start in round 7 for everyone?

    Or do you miss rounds where you kept a player and get to pick rounds where you gave up a player?

    I decide to keep my Round 1 draft , so I miss round 1
    I decied to give up my 3rd round player, so i pick in round 3?

    Yours
    Confused


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus


    The draft setting for the keeper league is a live standard draft so my take on this is that we pick 6 keepers each and then start the draft with the remaining players with managers taking turns drafting players in a fixed back-and-forth snake format.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    Yes Coeus. We "lose" the first 6 rounds based on keepers and start a random snake draft from there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,181 ✭✭✭Iang87


    Hmmmi think I'm confusing myself but lets see.

    1. We select keepers
    2. Draft begins with pool of all non keepers
    3. team 1, team 2, team 3................... all select
    4. team 3, team 2, team 1................... then select.
    5. pick til roster fills


    The confusion is I dont understand this "losing of draft picks"

    There is no losing of draft picks, as far as I understand it. This is one way of running a keeper league, that you lose the pick of the round in which you drafted each keeper, but as I see it we're not doing it that way.

    The way you outlined it above is the way it's going to go. It's a normal snake draft, just without the players who have been kept being available.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,335 ✭✭✭smackbunnybaby


    Thanks for all the clarifications guys.

    Just about to Finalize my keepers!
    everyone done theirs?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,351 ✭✭✭✭8-10


    Keepers finalized! I just hope there's enough decent players left to fill the massive gaps in some stats that I need.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    Ok, from the suggestion by 8-10, I have decided to alter the draft slightly.
    I have set the draft order in reverse order to last years finishing positions.
    So the draft order will be as follows:
    Tolka Drakes
    Golden Nuggets
    Artful Dodgers
    HotBalls
    Seattle Seamonkeys
    Judean Peoples Front
    Homer's Homers
    K Kings
    Albuquerque Isotopes
    Henry Le Cheat III

    As a Keeper League, it makes more sense to set the draft order this way. It is still a snake draft, so Tolka will have pick 1 & 20 etc.

    Has the keeper deadline past? I thought it was today but at midnight tonight. I was just attempting to pick my guys there and I see a message saying that it has past :confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    It was set for the 24th. As far I know it is midnight tonight. Will check it later when at home.

    Yea, I checked the settings and they say the deadline passed this morning at 7am :confused:

    Anyway I have been looking in the commish section of help and you have to finalize the picks so if you cant reopen the keeper selection. I'll send mine on via PM...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    Yeah, deadline has passed. But PM me the 6 players and I can set these manually.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus

    PM sent. I would check that other teams in case anyone else missed the deadline. See everyone at the draft tommorrow evening...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    Right lads. Keepers set and available Player List now shows who we can draft. Remember I have set the draft order in reverse of last years final standings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,181 ✭✭✭Iang87


    9pm tonight. 9.


    no confusion its 9 yes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭boccy23


    9PM tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,181 ✭✭✭Iang87

    Yes, I'm seeing 1 hour 15 mins until the start of the draft. My team needs are obvious, pitching, as all my keepers are batters...

    ditto!
    I am in trouble though, the window isn't loading for me properly (mock draft). the green bar goes to about 90%
    And I have tested it loads of times on this computer as well!
    balls!
    If I dont make it in, you know why!
