*COUGH*






O:-)


Do you always just randomly troll around different Cafe league forums, waiting for your opportunity to strike? B-)


HAHA! Actually last night was my first time trolling the forums, since my past few weeks of looking for a cafe league in the classifieds has pretty much gone no where. So I figured the next place to go was the forums for existing leagues looking for replacements. Just so happens this was the first one I went into.

Just putting my hat into the ring for any replacements you guys would need ;-D

I'd definitely like a larger MiLB system if we're going the keeper route. If we only have like 3-5 guys per team, you could easily have some years without even promoting anybody because you've got to save the slots on guys you really can't drop.

Who is getting dropped from this league?

I've just been in a league with 15 minor league keepers, and having that many really didn't do much for the league. During the yearly minors drafts guys just went overly stupid on that years hyped draft picks. And then they just sat there.

I'd like to propose that the minor leaguers must have played A+ ball before you can select them. ;-D

i dont know how relevant this will be, but in 2 dynasty leagues im in here at the cafe we have a pretty good system in place.
there is a minor league draft before our league starts. each team has 5 selections and anyone under the rookie requirements is eligible to be selected. during the season, anyone who is in the yahoo database and still under the requirements can then be picked up on your team, then dropped down to the minor league system. you get 5 of these adds during the season and at the end of the season, anyone still under the requirements can stay, anyone over has to go on your active roster or back into the FA pool. it works out nicely.

Well with dynasties with rookie draft they have to be committed to years before they generally make a huge impact. I mean yeah you'll get the guys that are drafted high but there's so many that don't make it compared to those that do. That's the draw with a minor system, and I think if you do have one the deeper the better. I'd probably say no to the A+ ball prerequisite as some of the guys coming straight from the draft are the guys that are most wanted, and I'd rather see someone like a David Price be drafted than picked off the waiver wire because he couldn't be drafted but made it to the bigs before the year closed.

I don't want 15 guys either, that's a second draft after the real one. I'd be fine with 6-8, just enough to cover all the top guys and 1 or 2 guys to keep around.

thats why i feel 5 pre-season is good, and 5 during the season (with some stipulations) is good as well. plus, after the season, more than likely you'll only get to keep maybe 4 or so, and then before the next season, you get to draft 5 more. most of the stud prospects will already be claimed, so you may not even want 5 more.

WS - you would be a great addition to the league - no matter what Aussie says :-b If you are interested, there is a spot open. You are the type of cafe vet we are looking for.

The sample is easy to get, just turn his faucet on, should yield the same results.
