This is going to be a $25 money league and also a keeper league. Therefore, if you dont intend to pay, or play for at least a couple of years, please dont sign up. That being said, let me get to the bylaws.
I have set up the league in a very unique way. The draft for this league will be an auction style draft. This way, every owner will have an opportunity to own some of the players they "covet". Every year after that will be an auction draft starting in round 7. The first 6 rounds will be your 6 keepers from the year before. 6 players must be kept and the cost for each player will be determined by their purchase price from last season plus a $3 inflation fee per player. The auction value of your keeper player will be deducted from your auction budget for the upcoming season.
The scoring will be a 6x6 scoring with HR, RBI, R, SB, AVG, OPS and W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP, QS being the scoring categories
The league is set up for 12 teams, therefore there will be $300 in the pool and payouts will be as follows:
1st - $120
2nd - $80
3rd - $40
As you can see that leaves $5 per team left over. This money will go to a side pot in the following year of the league.
There is a good reason for this.
It is an incentive for owners to stick around. If an owner leaves the league after year 1, and we are forced to sell his/her team at a discount ($20) that owners $5 will be pulled from the $60 pot to help keep the league going. It sucks to have a keeper league dissolve after 1 year because 3-4 owners select horrible teams and back out the next year. So hopefully this will help keep the league going. The winner of the side pot each season will be the owner with the most wins over the course of the previous 2 seasons.
Lastly, please send your paypal payment of $27 to cover the fees to my paypal address of email@example.com
, nonpayers will be deleted. Good luck and if you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
