Are My Rules Okay?

Postby NickyEyes » Mon Mar 23, 2009 6:25 pm

Me and my friend decided to get together and run a team in an acquaintances fantasy baseball league. Neither of us have ever done this before, and it seems that baseball is about 600x more complicating than football. I've been reading this forum for a few weeks now, and hopefully, I'm retaining some things.

I was just wondering if some of you guys could give me some input as to whether my leagues rules seem legit or not. Also, I feel like the 'constitution' of our league is lacking some crucial information that I may not even know I'm missing. Is there anything important I should be asking my commissioner before we draft next week?

I look forward to many good conversations on here, thanks in advance.

CBS league, 18 teams, we can keep anywhere from 18-28 players per roster at any time, $325 salary cap, auction draft w/keepers.

Your points and keeper amounts probably make it more complicated that it could be......................if this is the first year that you and your friends are doing this, I would suggest a redraft league instead of a keeper, this way you don't have to replace 10 owners who don't like it after their first year.

no, this league has been going for like 7 years now. its just mine and my friends first time getting into it. we inherited 4 keepers (Alex Rios, Carlos Delgado, Justin Upton, and Yunel Escobar). They've been doing keepers for a few years i believe.

Two things.

1) Way too many keepers.
2) What are your keeper escalators? I.e., how much do they go up by every year?

Can't comment on the points settings; don't do it so don't really know.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

the keepers are like a contract system. you can sign guys for either 1, 2, or 3 year contracts. and they're value escalates by $5 every year.
