How to run a keeper league ( auction draft )

Postby koondog » Mon Dec 27, 2004 11:07 am

Looking for some advice on the best practices to setup and run a keeper league.

Are there default rules that I can use?
What is the best way to handle an auction?
I like TQStats to run the day-to-day operations, any better out there?
Is 12-14 teams enough to use the entire MLB roster?

We use TQSTATS and it has worked out great for us. I believe they have default rules in place. However in our league each year we vote on rule and format changes to improve the league.

I would recommend at least 14-teams if you are going to use the entire MLB roster. With 12-14 you could do an NL league only.

agree w/el guapo.. a deeper league rewards hard work and research .. if you just want a fun league w/little active management then a 10 team mixed is ok
