What do you think about this Keeper League

Postby bama680 » Thu Feb 09, 2006 9:03 pm

We have a 20 player 8 team league. We have a system that allows you to keep players based on years of experience. ie: Arod has played for 10 years. You are allowed to keep 40 years of experience, plus any 2 players that will not count against the 40 year cap. We call it 40 + 2 Each rookie kept will count one year toward your cap, and any player kept must be on your roster by the Allstar break to count toward next year.

Sounds kinda cool, but if you get a good young player such as Pujols or even Ichiro who hasn't been in the MLB too long they're a ton more valuable than someone like A-Rod. Also players like Schilling and Clemens would be practically worthless because they take up almost half your cap.

That is why we have the plus 2, it allows you to carry 2 players that will not count against your cap. I should add that we only have 4 bench players to our 20 man playing roster.

Kind of an interesting twist, but years played isn't really a great way to determine how good a player is, I guess that's why you have the +2 rule. If you are going to go to that length, why not base it on how many all-star appearances the players have had. You could pick a cap of something like 20 all-star appearances per team (for your keepers), or whatever # worked out. It's interesting to see some of the unique ideas people come up with for keeper leagues.
