Hey guys,
Time to take a roll call of the members returning. I hope we will only have to replace PhilaFury.

1. Pockets - IN
2. Diamond Dogs - IN
3. Cooperstown Legends- IN
4. Schomi Skydogs - IN
5. PhilaFury (darwinna13) - IN
6. Rico - IN
7. Cashew Losers {CHAMPION} - IN
8. Hiro Mets- IN
9. Base Bandits - IN
10. Hawkeyes - IN
11. suckerpuncher - IN
12. GreenMonster - IN

Stealing from KK's league timing. I would like to have everyone's keepers in by Friday at Midnight. This way we can have the weekend to prepare and start the draft on the Yahoo Group page on Monday the 21st.

I'm back, of course.

What were the keeper rules again? 6 + 2 I think but I'm not quite sure what the rookie limitation was.


Any chance to push back the draft to mid-February? Normally I'm a fan of drafting early.
But most teams haven't even completed trades and the MLB rosters aren't set. And since the draft should not take more than a month we'd still have enough time.

But if anybody else is fine with January, 21st I'm cool with that too.

I would rather not push back the draft start time. With 28 positions on each team that means we have 240 spots to fill during the draft. Even with 2 months we may be cutting it close to the opener on the 25th of March.

And yes, this is the last year of the 2 bonus keepers rule, for next years draft everyone just gets 8 keepers.

Alrright, then January, 21st it is.

Did we sepcify a max. number of games or IP a "rookie" was not allowed to exceed more than 2x?


And did we also agree on changing the draft order for the next year? Like the champ drafting last and the 6th ranked team after the plyoffs drafting 7th?
If not I propose it right now. ;)

Here's my reasoning behind it.

It gives every team something to play for even if you are fighting for 9th instead of 10th in the final week. If we do it the usual way then what is to prevent me from tanking on purpose just to get the first pick in the draft? This way the consolation side of the playoffs actually means something.

If you can show me why a different way would be better I am more than willing to listen.

I can agree with you on how to determine the draft order for the #1 to #6 spot to some degree. Although it's harder for the bottom teams to rebuild via draft.

Right now the worst team of the regular season is also likely to finish 12th in the playoffs and would draft 6th overal while a championship playoff contender who missed the playoffs by maybe a point will likely end up winning the consolation bracket and end up with the #1 overall draft pick.
That would make an already good team better and a bad team would not improve as much.

Maybe it's a also a good idea to take the regular season finish into account for the #1 to #6 draft spot and just take the reverse order of the regular season like it's done normally in sports (more or less).
But that would render the consolation bracket pretty much useless since teams have nothing to gain (or lose).
And you could argue that teams would lose on purpose over the last weeks of the regular season. But I think everybody in the league has enough integrity and spirit to not do that.


But the spots from #7 to #12 should defintefively be determined differently.
All the teams in the championship bracket fight for something at least in the beginning of the playoffs. And I think the champ should draft #12.

I suggest the following order for the spots #7 to #12:
#7 loser of the 5th place matchup (6th placed team)
#8 winner of the 5th place matchup (5th placed team)
#9 loser of the 3th place matchup (4th placed team)
#10 winner of the 3th place matchup (3rd placed team)
#11 loser of the championship matchup (runner-up)
#12 winner of the championship matchup (Champion)

Maybe change #7 and #8 to avoid somebody losing on purpose.
Since the other 2 matchup have a trophy on the line everybody will gives his best to win.

With 96 people kept, I don't think the 97th best player will be that much better than the 102nd best player.

Right now the worst team of the regular season is also likely to finish 12th in the playoffs and would draft 6th overal while a championship playoff contender who missed the playoffs by maybe a point will likely end up winning the consolation bracket and end up with the #1 overall draft pick.

But that would render the consolation bracket pretty much useless since teams have nothing to gain (or lose).
What would be my reason for playing once I know my team is out of the playoff spot.
And you could argue that teams would lose on purpose over the last weeks of the regular season. But I think everybody in the league has enough integrity and spirit to not do that.
Maybe enough integrity to not bench your team, but can you honestly say would search the Waiver wire as hard or take as long to figure out which SP you would start on a given day? I would hate to be in 6th place in the last week and see that the 7th place team is playing a team who doesn't want to win.

#12 winner of the championship matchup (Champion)

Maybe change #7 and #8 to avoid somebody losing on purpose.
Since the other 2 matchup have a trophy on the line everybody will gives his best to win.
I think the regular season champ is a lot more indicative of the strongest team, the playoffs can be a crapshoot. In your proposed order above, the regular season champ could finish in 6th place and get 7th in the draft order.

In my mind having the top 6 picks determined by the consolation finals and the bottom 6 determined by the regular season will always be the fairest way to do things. The top 6 teams could tank to improve their draft position (if they knew they could still make the playoffs), but that would mean they play a better/tougher team on the way to the championship. The bottom 6 teams could tank, but that would mean they have to play a harder team on the way to the consolation chamionship and the #1 overall draft pick.

I may be playing devil's advocate with some of this, and of course I would never tank - but you haven't shown how your way of deciding the draft order improves the league.

I know it's hard to come up with a real good solution that takes everything into account.

Right now the bottom half is not determined by the the regular season standings. If the list of teams you posted above is the draft order then the bottom half is still determined by the championship playoffs.
The winner got pick #7 and the 6th place team got pick #12.

After the playoff is over Yahoo alters the final standings. All spots will be order by the playoff result. The #1 spot always goes to the champ even if was #6 after the regular season.

If you want to determine the order by ther regular season standings then you have to take the order right when the playoffs begin.
And even then the order should be reversed. The regular season winner should draft last.


And yes there might be some difference between the 97th player and 102nd player in a keeper league draft. If 1 or 2 teams have more great players than they can keep those players are more valueable in the draft and can make a difference.


Maybe the rest of the league can also give their opinion on the draft order.



This now has nothing to do with the draft order.
I wanted to complete my keeper list soon and I'm still not sure how a "rookie" was determined. Unfortunately I can't find that information on the group page that's way I have to ask here.

Good catch, I just grabbed the list from the Group page. The draft order is:
1. Pockets
2. Diamond Dogs
3. Cooperstown Legends
4. Schomi Skydogs
5. PhilaFury (who we need a replacement for)
6. Rico
7. Suckerpuncher
8. Hiro Mets
9. GreenMonster
10. Cashew Losers
11. Hawkeyes
12. Base Bandits



As for the keeper rule: any guy who hasn't appeared in 30 or more games in 3 years can be kept as one of the bonus guys.
Also, I want to bring the Max moves from 55 to 50. I think 50 is still high and no one came close to that number last year.

01-12-2008, 08:40 PM
I'm back in, Base Bandits.

As for the draft order, I think Picks 1-6 should be determined by the consolation round of the playoffs. It gives the teams in the lower half a reason to keep playing. As for Picks 7-10, if you guys want to use regular season finish, that's fine with me.

As long as your players hasn't played in 3x30 you are fine, if he has only been in the league 1 or 2 years you don't need to worry about it.

Yes, I am still waiting for one team to get me their list. It wouldn't be fair for me to post he keeper list and allow the last team to see who has been kept/ who is available. Worst case, I will email all of the managers who have submitted their picks tomorrow.

PS: Dawinna13 must be pumped for the league - his sig already includes his unfinished team!

Once you download a file converter from Microsoft, it works fine (for me at least).

I have a quick question about how the draft is going to work? We have a 24 hour time limit for each pick? And, when does the time start, when ever the person before us picks or is it like 12a to 12p?

You have 24 hours from when the last person picked. We all need to check our email multiple times a day because we have 200+ picks to make in less than 70 days. Which means if we don't have at least 3 picks a day, we will not have the draft done before the season starts.

Hey guys,
I have finally posted the final rosters for everyone in a text file on the group page.

Checking last years draft time line, it took us about 1.5 months to get the entire draft completed, so I am thinking this year we will start somewhere in the middle of Feb. That should give us lots of time to complete the draft before the April 5th start of the season. Keepers will be due sometime at the start of Feb.

Can everyone post if they are returning. Thanks

First trade to announce...

Cashew Losers trades Scott Kazmir, Derek Jeter and his last 2 draft picks this year to Rico for his 2nd and 3rd pick this year.

Side note: Does anyone know of any other trades made last year involving this year's draft picks? The only one I have seen involves Cashew getting my 10th pick for his 11th .

Second side note: As if me trading away Geovany Soto and Jacoby Ellsbury away for Placido Polanco and Jorge Posada wasn't bad enough - I had to improve one of his draft picks as well.

I ask that you get me your keepers by next Friday the 13th (Thursday
would be even better). If your keepers are not in by noon Friday you
will start losing draft picks. Every 12 hours over the deadline, you
lose your last pick... almost everyone got me their keepers in on time
last year so lets hope no one needs to lose a pick.

The draft will start Monday the 16th after that.

I thought that too.

But then we'd need to find a suitable draft time/date for all. And since 3 of us live in Germany it's harder to find that since there's a 6 hour time difference.

The latest time I could attend to start a draft would probably 7:30-8pm ET which would be already 1:30-2am here and the draft itself will also take about an hour minimum. And I'm not sure if the other 2 also have so much time at night.

So it will be hard but not impossible.

A live draft would be nice, I didn't know Yahoo for sure had implemented that option. We could do a Saturday or Sunday noon EST draft which would be diner time for the Germany folks.

Not asking for a kidney, just a little consideration for the people picking behind you, thats all. Leaving Rico waiting 16 hours for his pick could easily have been avoided if you taken 5 minutes to send him a 3 player draft board anytime from Saturday night on if you knew that Sunday was going to be a busy day for yourself..

As it was, you were in here last night posting your drivel but didn't have the 2 minutes to check the board and realize you were on the clock? please, thats either ignorance, laziness or inconsideration.

24 hours is an excessive amount of time to leave the next guy waiting to pick which is why I suggested chopping it to 12 hours. We've had a total of 4 picks over the last 40+ hours and that flat out sucks for everybody.

I don't know if I'm going to check it every other hour even if I did.

To your second point, 24 hours is long but I don't think anyone has had to wait that long. It also comes with a penalty. I just don't know if people think 4 picks in 40 hours sucks? I love baseball, and fantasy, but I just don't see the big deal. Again, if you're so impatient, do a live draft next time. Otherwise, do a 12 hour clock. Otherwise, be patient.

A) I would hope you have the draft picks available on all computers you are on. You just need to go to groups.yahoo.com and sign in.
B) Do you not have your email address site handy (where the picks are emailed)?

Its not just Kam though, there have been a few times where we have waited an extended period of time. I don't want to switch to a 12 hour clock yet because we have some overseas guys and that may leave some drafters with only an hour or two depending on when night is for them. On the other hand if everyone takes 12-16 hours to make their pick because they don't bother thinking about it till they are up, then we won't be able to get our draft done on time.

looch17
02-23-2009, 09:43 PM
The twenty four hour limit is set for those of us that cannot get to their computer at certain times...work, family, prior commitments, plus the overseas guys in our league. The way I see it is if you are on your computer and your pick is up there is no reason why you cant make your pick in a timely manner. I am not trying to start anything, just giving my opinion. Its not too hard to make a pick. You should have some type of idea of what direction you are headed with you next pick. Find the best player that suits that need, make your pick and the next guy can go. Continued good luck to you all in the remaining of the draft and hopefully we can keep it moving at a steady pace.

First Pick was on Feb 16th. So roughly speaking, we are drafting for 8 days and have done 4 rounds. This is two days (48 hours) for 12 picks, so we are averaging 4 hours a pick.

If guys start missing their picks because of the 12 hour clock, the whole draft/league is kind of ruined because managers won't like their teams. If someone drafts at 9PM and you're out that night, you're pretty much going to miss your pick. Probably the same for 6PM, 7PM, and 8PM, too.

To me its really simple if your pick is up and you are around then there is no reason not to make your pick. If you are at work, gone, with the family, appointment, etc...when you get home check to see if you are up do a little research and make your pick.

Just a little tip one that I know me and rico do is keep a tab/ window open of your email. That way you will notice there is mail. Check it to see if it is your turn or to see how close you are so you can get ready.

Sounds like quite the Gong Show going on with Kam. Its hard enough picking for two teams in one draft, I would have to have 2 going on at the same time.
And aside from Cooperstown's essay on taking Iwamura, the message board hasn't updated so I have no clue who you picked.

In case you dont see your PMs 2 things rico:

1) Yahoo posted a note on our league page that we have to have our draft done by the 29th for our league to start on time.

2) You put Broxton on Hiro's team when he should be one my roster. I drafted Broxton in Hiro's draft spot from the trade me and him made so you probably got confused. Honest mistake its all good.

hiro
03-22-2009, 09:54 AM
here it says there has been no activity within the last 7 days, and i cannot see any messages - so probably just another view of the same problem.

we could do the draft within in the Y!-fantasy-form. just post a message there. that should do.

i just don't know if some of the guys rely on the group page as their only information

As for finishing it up here, not everyone is on this board - I figure email is the easiest way.
As long as I find out who was picked, I can update the spreadsheet. As long as you check the spreadsheet before picking you should be good.

In another league here we drafted via the message board / Post function on the actual league front site.

Everybody should be able to check the league site at least once a day to see if he's up.
And we could also email/PM each other here to notify someone that he's up.

Hey guys,
Time to start thinking about this league again.

With all the delays we had in picks and the amount of time it took to complete the draft, I stongly suggest that we move to an online draft. Yahoo has improved a ton in the past couple years and we can have our keepers auto-chosen for us at he beginning of the draft.

Post if you are in again this year and what you think of the draft method.

looch17
01-24-2010, 10:43 PM
I am back as for the draft I prefer the offline draft for two reasons...1)for myself I have a busy, scattered schedule right now so it would be tough for me to do a draft online. With the team that I have and built I would hate to miss out on the draft and 2)we have players in our league from overseas so it would be even harder to make a time that we are all on the same page time wise. Just my 2 cents.

Winger72
01-25-2010, 08:04 AM
I'm back.

I'd rather have an offline draft as I like the longer time in between the picks, but I can understand where Rico is coming from.

What if we shorten the time between picks? I believe it's 24 hours, what if we immediately shortened it to 12 hours. That way if someone misses their pick, we don't have to wait a whole day for the next person to be on the clock.
