How many Keepers should be allowed ?

Postby Moss84 » Mon Jan 14, 2008 3:30 pm

12 team standard mixed auction league ($1000 budget)
Each team drafts 25 players - 2 C,1B,2B,SS,3B, 5 Outfielders, 8 SP and 2 relievers.

In 2007 we had FOUR keepers allowed per team ($10 annual increase). We can keep ONE Infielder, outfielder, pitcher and 4th can be any position. We are considering allowing SIX keepers in 2008 but a few teams object. Offseason trades are allowed.

What other reasons would support my argument to increase allowable keepers to SIX in 2008 ?
1. reward teams that have better auction and get more bargains / sleepers that pan out
2. increase trades

I can see good arguments for both sides. Keeping 6 allows teams to be rewarded for having some nice bargains. I could also see why some teams only want 4 keepers. Keeps the rich from getting richer and allows the lower teams to feel that they have a better chance. Since it's the offseason, I would just put it to a vote.

I'm more of a dynasty and deep keeper leaguer nowadays, but I would answer this by saying that you should put it to a vote for sure. Some guys might have great points for 6+ and some might be equally passionate about 4. Let the majority speak their mind and then maybe shoot the gap a little bit to keep everyone MOSTLY happy. That is about the best one can do in this situation ;-D

as stated can make arguments either way, no one is more right over the other. If I was in your league and you came to me with this I would be fine going to 6 personally.

I would also put it to a vote though, maybe with the provision of allowing UP to 6 if that maybe makes the people against it happier.

Voting options of

stay @ 4
go to 6
4 to 6

could meet halfway too go to 5 for this year and see how it goes and if smooth just increase to (and hold at) 6 next year
