2nd year keeper advice

Postby bpizle » Tue Jun 10, 2008 2:32 am

Okay, just curious as to what you guys do in your leagues. Right now its a 10 team, h2h, 6 keeper.. Were counting runs next season.. However one aspect of the league that has been troubling this year is pitcher "streaming".. We replaced a couple of owners earlier and were very active, pretty good league all around, just curious as to what you guys do as for pitcher "caps" or transaction caps that put a certain amount of players you can pick up per week. Which brings me to my first question, on CBS as a commish, how do you put a pitcher cap into effect on the rules page?

Ok, so, besides the fact that that was completely incoherent, I am confused as to what you are trying to do. Are you looking to create an innings limit or a transaction cap, as they are done differently (and should be done in the offseason).

Yea, its no doubt going to be done in the offseason, were just trying to put a cap on how many pitchers you can pick up in a week..

I think the cleanest way to do it is just cap the season. We do 60 per year which is enough flexibility that if you're tweaking your team, you have enough moves, but you don't have so many that you can churn through guys nightly (it's about 2 per week).

The way we track it in Sportsline is under League Fees, I made it $1 for every pickup. We don't collect the money, just do a flat entry fee, but it's an easy way to keep track that everyone can see and keep up to date on. Also, we don't start charging until the season officially starts, so if people want to do post-draft roster tweaking if they forgot about someone or overdrafted a position or whatever, that doesn't count to the limit.

If you really want to do it weekly, you could do it the same way; you'd just have to go in and manually adjust the costs at the end of each week. More pain than it's worth IMO.

we just have 2 SP adds per week. Yahoo league so we just police ourselves as the transactions are on the league home page for all to see. just make a punishment severe enough that a manager does not want to violate the rule and things will take care of themselves.

No, I'm saying you can tell Sportsline that each of your transactions cost $1. So when you go to your league fees page, anyone can see how many transactions everyone has done (it's the # of dollars they've spent on pickups). We don't actually collect that money, but it's an easy way to use to track everyone's transaction count.

It doesn't really line up, but the second dollar column is the costs, and that's everyone's to-date waiver wire pickups. And then we just cap them at 60.
