    Don't I know it, Mr Inconsistency


    NAMA Bama Ramas in a different class, a mile away on top of the league
    Scored 14 runs last night
    My team is decent but how can anyone compete with that??


    Tight race for second though and a bye in the playoffs
    That team has Mike Trout and Miggy which makes it almost unfair in a 16 team league. And a good pitching roster, I fully exect Ramas to be t top team goin into t playoffs...

    Fortunately NAMA Rama Bamas are in the non keeper league :P

    Although the top team in this league also has Trout :(

    Is anyone else playing??? My team is leading so I'm reasonably active but other than T's move a couple of days ago there's been nothing in the last weeks...:confused:

    Yeah still going, was leading a couple of weeks ago but that was short-lived.
    Only going to get worse for me once Strasburg shuts down

    Still playing, finding it hard to pick up any decent players at this stage though and have been crippled by injuries. Was in 2nd place a month or two ago, went on holidays for three weeks and dropped to tenth! Just barely holding on to sixth place now though. How many make the playoffs?

    It's a roto league, no playoffs.
    Playoffs only for head-to-head leagues

    I'm still playing for sure, still a little unsure as to what quality of players is good enough for this level, am near the bottom (missed the draft) and I also have messed up a lot setting my lineup weekly...


  • Registered Users Posts: 180 ✭✭bit of red72


    Missing the weekly deadline or simply getting it wrong is where I'm finding the league difficult as well. I started Jurickson Profar this week and then found out he wouldn't be playing at all. I'm not actually sure why I'm winning as I don't think the team is that good to be honest. Only played daily head to head before so the decisions seem much more important here.

    Congrats to Cloverhill Cavaliers!

    Remember for next season, 4 keepers each (lose pick from whichever round they were picked in) and draft will be snake, based on final standings.

    happy enough with 5th, thought i'd be down in 7th or 8th at one point last week.

    Hi everyone,

    As we approach Spring Training, time to re-boot the Keeper league.

    As agreed last year, we will have 4 keepers each.
    You will lose a pick based on the round each player was selected in (this pick will increase each year).

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsO5karsgEN6dEV1bnBWenFQMlByS3BjRUtBdm5aVUE&usp=sharing

    Link above with list of your draft from last year, and list in column G of what pick you will be giving up to keep that player.
    Basics
    - Keepers have to be selected before draft date (which we will agree later)
    - If you have two guys to keep from same round e.g. both round 9, then you will lose picks in round 9 & 10
    - Free agents you picked up last year, you will lose 25th round pick for this year
    - Trading is allowed in advance of draft, however not for picks at the moment as can't enable this currently

    Also, there may be spots in league if everyone doesn't come back, so if there's anyone interested let me know.

    Yeah have a free spot as one guy emailed me saying he was unable to commit this year, PM me your email address and will send you an invite.

    You will take over an active roster, and pick your 4 keepers from their team.

    Keeper Rule:

    Looks like I was a bit ambitious with the keeper rules. Apparently the ESPN site doesn't let you assign compensation for keepers at the moment.


    You have 4 keepers each, and then we start a standard snake draft for the rest of the roster.
    So, basically pick your 4 best players to keep.

    Is it working the same as the Boards Yahoo! Keeper League in that the draft will run in reverse to last years finishing positions? Last place gets 1st pick and so on?

    Yeah exactly


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,514 ✭✭✭BigBadRob83


    If anyone feels like they have 5 keepers, am open to a 2-for-1 swap.

    At the moment have 3 definites and 1 probable keeper, but if I can upgrade to 4 definites with a 2-for-1 from someone would be open to it.

    PM me if interested (Exiled Red Sox)
