-Keeper format with 10 keepers
-Keepers can be kept up to four years
-Minor league system instituted next year
-Regular snake draft
What type of league are you guys interested in? Dynasty? Re-draft? Keeper league? (How many keepers?) One with a minor league system? (How many minor leaguers?) Do we include some sort of salary system? After some discussion about the pro's and con's of each, we can come to some sort of resolution and perhaps a vote. Personally, I would like to hear from everybody since we all have a wealth of knowledge of fantasy baseball and have an extensive background/history of playing it. We have seen what works and what doesnt.
In my humble opinion, I would go with a keeper league of about 8 keepers. This way, just in case we do have drop-outs from year to year, we can easily recruit other cafe vets. Taking over a completed team isnt the ideal situation. With this format, you could also have the unoriginal twist of losing a draft pick for whatever round your keeper was selected in. Or maybe we could devise a system where you "sign" players to contracts based on their "real-world" contracts and you have a limited amount to spend. Say we give out 30 mil per team and you can sign as many players as possible under that 30 mil budget. This would certainly give some intrigue to the hot stove season. Or maybe you combine both. I'm just tossing around ideas as they come to me. Feel free to shoot them down so that we can brainstorm other ones. I'm trying to think of ways where this league provides variety to your fantasy baseball experience.
So what is your ideal league format? Let the collaboration begin!
FYI - I would like to keep the H2H format in place.
