Minor league keeper system

Postby mikedeatworld » Tue Jan 27, 2004 12:14 pm

How are some of your leagues ran with a Minor league system in place?


I am in a keeper league that once had a Minor league system, but it feel through becaue we couldnt figure out how it should work.

Basically, owners started storing players who werent in the minors in the ML pool.

Any advice on how to include a Minor League system?

Thanks,

Only guys who are eligible to be rookies should be in minors. Once they lose rookie eligibility, you have 2 options. At end of year, they either have to be protected or cut, or they can be kept till week 1, then either activated to regular roster, or cut.

My league uses the ML 25 man roster, and then we use minor leaguers of any level to round out the 40 man...and once a guy is promoted to the bigs, he HAS to be placed on teh 25 man roster and someone must be released from the 25 man roster....and then the guy can pick up a new Minor leaguer

So literally a guy could have a AAA guy like Larouche or a guy like Delmon Young....from rookie ball thru AAA, but ya only get 15 guys

We keep 2-3 minor leaguers. Since we play on Yahoo we define a minor leaguer as anyone not on the Yahoo database (which means Japanese/Cuban etc. are considered minor leaguers). However, once they are added to the Yahoo database, they must be picked up or let go.

hootie's got the right idea. I guess you'd have to look at the number of games played to determine if they are a rookie or not too right? If a guy gets called up in September 2 years in a row and has like 30 games he's still a rookie until he reaches that game total that makes him not a rookie.

Our league setup was already stated...

When a hitter/pitcher reaches 130 AB or 50 IP in their major league CAREERS.....they are no longer 'minor league' eligible in our league.

This setup doesn't a) handcuff owners when a guy gets called (and in many cases, set right back down) and b) doesn't allow the owner to abuse a set up. System is cut and dry -- at the 130/50 standard you must either call him up to your big league fantasy roster or cut him outright.

GUEST true, in real life rookies lose their rookie eligibilty when they exceed 130 abs, or 50 innings.
