Dvauthrin has been reminded about the lack of a 12th round draft selection. :-°

Traditionally we start with a 24 hour time limit, but because of the lateness of the start of the draft I started small. I think we're doing a good job so far, so I can't complain.

If you'll all commit right now to managing your teams next season again we can start drafting earlier and then have a 24 hour time limit. :-D

Thanks Red for helping while I was out the last two day!

No problem, I could have handled three day or even four day too! :-B

It was mentioned in another league I'm in that Yahoo now has the ability to add a roster spot called N/A, that functions just like DL, but of course the player must be N/A. This might be something neat for us to consider implementing next season. My initial thought isn't to increase keepers, but to just have the N/A slot available to stash someone for the majority of the season if necessary and consider them for one of your 7 keepers the next season? Thoughts or suggestions?

I think this is worth putting towards a vote before next season. While I wasn't a fan of it in the league Jimmy mentioned, here I think I see the advantages. Our benches are quite shallow, plus, in the draft, teams looking to win now would focus on the best immediate contributors. This would give the bottom tier of previous season managers the opportunity to horde the better up & coming prospects more easily. ;-D for better parity.

Thanks Thrill for nabbing Puig. :-° Was going to be tempted to draft him just to see where his train goes but it made much more sense for me to gamble on Arenado.

I think N/A is worth considering in this league. Although, personally, I think we should limit it to 1 (maybe 2). We might know a little more this coming season about how effectively the revised redraft/keeper rules impacts the parity that previously existed in the league.

Thanks for the speed guys! Rosters are finalized, but there were some trades and such so double check and make sure I didn't mess something up with your team. ;-D
