I was torn but I voted yes. Adds another intriguing aspect, especially if it evolves into a keeper down the line.

i only vote yes if we have a keeper. no sense in having a minor league system if we arent keeping anyone. also, i see what you guys are saying about waiting to see if this league warrants having keepers at the end of the year, but i think its something we need to decide on now, considering we would alter our draft strategies if its a redraft, keeper, dynasty, etc...

Outside of a dynasty and maybe a deep keeper I see little to no point in having a minor system which will likely go unused for the majority.

Just to clarify...the evolving I wrote about would mean that this year would strictly be a redraft. If it evolved into a keeper, we wouldn't be keeping anyone from this draft, but rather have our first draft with keepers in mind next year (assuming we have fun and most people stay active).

On that note I vote no...

Agreed, I'd hate to draft Ortiz over Braun now for example and then find out we're making this a keeper at the end.

what's the point to have a minor league system?
if you think a player will break out later, keep him on your bench before somebody else does 8-o
12-team h2h 5X5 non-keeper

Either way I would prefer not to have one, BUT would be okay with it if we were doing a deep keeper or dynasty. Definetly not in a redraft.
