2nd year 12 team Fantasy Baseball Keeper League has two spots open, $75 to pot. CBS Sportsline
We actually had three guys who left after last season. One spot filled this past week. The three new GMs will draft apart the 3 vacant rosters some time late February. All 3 new GMs will agree on the time and date for their draft.
Player Pool: AL and NL Players. Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, OF, U, SP and RP. Eligibility: Players are eligible at their primary position, plus positions they've played 20 games last year or 10 games this year. Pitchers gain eligibility at Starting Pitcher with 5 starts last year or 5 starts this year. Pitchers gain eligibility at Relief Pitcher with 10 relief appearances last year or 10 relief appearances this year. Transactions: • Lineups are set once for the start of each period.
Schedule: Weekly scoring periods, starting on Mondays. Playoffs start in Period 23 and last for 4 Periods. Fees: League Entry Fee: $75.
Scoring: Head-to-Head, Individual Categories System. Scoring based on total stats each period.
Scoring for Batting Categories BA - Batting Average HR - Home Runs R - Runs RBI - Runs Batted In SB - Stolen Bases
Scoring for Pitching Categories ERA - Earned Run Average K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) S - Saves W - Wins WHIP - Walks + Hits / Inning
12 teams. One division. 22 weeks of H2H 5 x 5 Roto play.
MONEY: The yearly $75 entrance fee does NOT include the CBS Sportsline fee; we will divide that by 12 each year. Your Year 1 we will collect $128. $75 (LF) + $40 ("DP" explained below) + $13 (CBS) = $128
$75 x 12 for pot = $900
Top 3 teams winning prizes
Everyone ponies up an extra $40 their first year, as a down payment, on the following season's league fee. This helps slow down the turnover, which is really a bummer in keeper/dynasty leagues as its harder to get guys to want to take over an existing abandoned franchise, especially if the keepers on that team aren't that great. If someone does quit, then we take that GMs $40 and just add it to the next season's pot. We do this each season, so its really only your Season 1 where you are putting in an extra deposit money down payment.

KEEPERS: The fantasy game here is to build a dynasty/keeper baseball team utilizing keeper players and your best skills and knowledge as a team owner.
Keep 12 players plus 4 farm team players (total of 16) from year to year. There is no draft or cost or time limit on your keepers. A player can be yours forever until you cut him or trade him.
Cut down day each season = March 15 - In order to qualify for consideration for one of 4 Farm Team (Minor Leaguer) Keeper spots, a player must have accumulated, in the prior to the immediate season under consideration: Fewer than 130 at bats and 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues.
If a player had 130 or more at bats (again, at bats, not plate appearances; walks are not at bats) and/or 50 or more innings pitched in the prior season or ANY prior season, he is NOT eligible for a keeper spot as one of our Minor League keepers. Only players who have never reached these levels in a single MLB season are eligible. -
Roster Limits Max Active Players 23 Minors Players 8 Total Players 40 Position Active C 2 Active 1B 1 Active 2B 1 Active 3B 1 Active SS 1 Active MI 1 Active CI 1 Active OF 5 Active U 1 Active SP 9 Active RP 9
STARTING LINEUPS MINIMUMS AND MAXIMUMS: There is a 35 innings pitched MINIMUM weekly requirement, but no minimum or maximum requirement for number of starting pitchers or relief pitchers on each roster. Should any team not reach the required limit of 35 innings pitched by the end of the game week, the league and overall rankings will be altered to show that team losing that week H2H in both ERA and WHIP.
There is a MAXIMUM limit the number of pitching starts per week to 12. Should any team exceed the maximum limit of 12 starts pitched by the end of the game week, the league and overall rankings will be altered to show that team losing that week H2H in Wins and Strikeouts.
Each team's batters must accumulate a MINIMUM total of at least 150 at-bats in a game week or it will lose in Batting Average H2H in that game week.
The 3 new GMs will draft apart the following players below the end of February. The three new GMs draft will be a date and time good for all three new GMs. They will draft players from the player list below to get their "expansion" Starter team. Then they will be able to trade with all 11 other GMs until March 15th. On March 15th all 12 GMs in the league will cut down to 12 MLB and 4 Minor League players. Then, the end of March, (date and time yet to be announced) there will be a "big" draft with all 12 GMs involved, using the CBS website draft room, where we will all fill our rosters back up to 40 for the 2010 season. The player pool for that draft will be all the players not protected when all 12 GMs cut down to 16 players (12 & 4) on March 15th.
