$200 Grow Rookies Keeper League Need 1

Postby jdouble777 » Tue Nov 19, 2013 10:38 pm

Rotoball 2014

This is our 5th year I believe, lost count, but every year we sadly end up needing one replacement as the league is pretty cumbersome and complex which requires serious commitment and development. This league it not for your average fantasy baseball fan. Most of us have paid the $200 for a couple years just to throw it away in the process on building a dynasty. Luckily for the inherent owner, this has happened for the one available team already and the new owner should be ready to compete this year and for many to come. This is how it works.

All of our owners have a minor league roster of 25 players that we may keep on our minor league roster until they cross the homegrow (HG) plateau. Whenever these prospects pass these levels they convert into homegrown transferable (HGT), meaning you can trade their keeper status. That is, they can be traded at any point between reaching 110 ABs/ 50IP in the majors UNTIL the draft of the following year, thus the off-season is quite active.

For example, I got Sonny Gray (SP OAK) long ago and kept him in my minors while he made his way through the minors and now he reached 50+IP which makes him HGT. I may trade his keeper status at any point until the start of our upcoming draft. Therefore, he is VERY valuable, and also more or less untouchable as by not trading him I have one of the most impressive young arms for the remainder of his career (or until I drop him). Another example, I got Danny Espinosa (former 20HR/20SB stud) as a HGT which cost me a pretty penny and gave me what I thought would be a star 2B for many years, however his strikeout prowess and sissy approach to shoulder surgery along with the emergence of his successor (Rendon) resulted in me dropping him last year despite having him HG. Now, he is available to be drafted, picked up on waivers, etc. by anyone and can never be HG again. This type of scenario is why our draft each year is full of prime pieces of roto (Beltre, Lee, Ortiz, Hamels, Werth, Cano, Pujols, etc.).

Seems real complicated, but it is really simple once you get the idea. Get stud minors, keep them until they hit 110ABs/50IP in the majors, then keep your stars forever and win many times in a row. We had an owner when three years in a row until being dismantled this season. If you build a solid team, draft well, and keep your farm stocked you can fair VERY well for a LONG time.

The scoring is standard ROTO (W, SV, K, WHIP, ERA / HR, SB, R, RBI, AVG)

Here is the team. It is absolutely loaded and has the 4th overall pick (VERY VALUABLE). Not to mention A Gon, Either, Iglesia, Drew, Chris Johnson, Brantley, Gardner, V Mart, Buccholz, etc. are all the owner's to have forever. Moreover, Gausman and company are not far behind.

Had this spot filled, but the owner ended up less active than desired and there is now again open

First to respond/take the team and convey as well as demonstrate a sincere commitment to be active in discussions on the site/trades/etc. gets the squad.

Lot of interest, nothing solid, would like this done this weekend if possible... If anyone seriously wants this message me or email me at justinwhitlock777@hotmail.com

We can give you an invite, allow you to look at the league and your team, then have a Q&A with the commish squad if desired about specifics etc.
