Totaling a 25 man roster, like the big leagues. But that's just my opinions. What does everyone else feel? I'm really willling to accept any format.


3 dl slots seems like a lot. i would say just 2. and about the keepers, will we put some sort of limit on how long you can have them? ie: can keep a total of 3 yrs. or something relating to the round drafted. a dynasty would be cool, but would be a bigger time commitment. would really need everyones input on that.

Yahoo is a yes. Dynasty is looking like a no, but if everyone shows heavy interest we could try it. Is everyone set on a draft or would an auction be something of interest? There are plenty of sites that will host the auction. We can have like 6 keepers, and every players salary goes up like 15% each season. waivers are a buck each. Im not feeling walks as a category. or losses. maybe dump those and roll a 6x6 of some kind. again all this is negotiable. how many do we have now? are the guys asking questions in or just interested?

6x6 works fine too. But if we don't use walks, how about using OBP instead of average to take walks into account?

And I've never done an auction, but I;m open to try it.

I want in.

I vote for 6x6 OPS plus either HLD or K/9, and live draft over auction.

Hmmm...

The problem with holds is, once you have both holds and saves, everyone picks one cat and ditches the other, making the whole thing pointless. And K/9 is sorta repetitive to K's, and OPS is really the same thing as AVG+BB+TB, while OBP is AVG+BB, so if we pull BB and avg and put in OPS, it's repetitive with TB. Hence the BB and AVG being replaced with OBP suggestion,m since OBP is really just Hits+walks.

I'm in.

I've been looking to get into a good dynasty/keeper league and this one looks solid.

Dynasty would probably be dicey on Yahoo. I would be up for auction too.

I wasn't voting for TB AND OPS. I meant the regular 5x5 plus OPS, which would've cover BB and TB.

It slipped my mind that this is a roto league. So there will prob be a inning limit, which does make K/9 similar to K. Scratch that K/9 thought...

I don't think everyone with either ditch Hld or Sv, at least I don't think I will.
