Each team will be able to keep (protect) a maximum of 4 players from their roster heading into the following season(2007), 5 (2008), 6 (2009), 7 (2010). There are a few guidelines to follow as far as protecting players…
1) For each player that you keep drafted after round 3, you lose a draft pick the next year THREE ROUNDS HIGHER than each player's draft round the previous year (keeping a player drafted in the 7th round will cost a 4th round pick the next year, keeping him again will cost a 2nd round pick the next, and so on). NOTE: NO players drafted in rounds 1 - 3 are able to be protected.
2) Free Agent’s keeper status will go as follows:
PLAYER ACQUIRED: SUBSEQUENT KEEPER PICK CHARGED
Once a player is drafted or kept, his draft round will not change. So if a player who was drafted in the 5th round got released and you picked him up in Week 1, his keeper status would apply to the 5th round, not the corresponding month he was picked up in.
In the event that a team wishes to keep multiple players that may "cost" the same pick, the team may either trade for a pick to supplement the kept player, or give the pick one-round ahead of what the initial "cost" would be. (For example, if you have two 5th-rounders, keeping one will cost a third-rounder, and keeping the other will cost either a third-rounder that you acquire via trade or a second-rounder).
Keeper announcements are due 7 days before each yearly draft. If they are not made, then it is assumed a team will not keep any players. All keeper announcements are final, and each team is allowed ONE keeper announcement. The final draft order will be announced BEFORE keeper lists are due.
Farm Keeper Policy:
Farm players will be defined as any player that has not accumulated a career total of 150 at bats (hitters) or 50 innings pitched (pitchers). Any player drafted that fails to exceed these parameters can be kept with their round status frozen until the requirements are reached.
After a player reaches the above specifications, they can be kept in accordance to the normal keeper rules. For example, a player drafted in the 30th round could, in turn, be kept as a 27th rounder for the next draft season.
Farm players that are picked up during the season are subjected to the same keeper rules for all free agent acquisitions. Only drafted farm players may have frozen status.
In the name of simplicity, only farm players in the CBS system at draft time are eligible.
Each team may keep a maximum of 5 farm players from year to year. Those farm players to be kept will be announced at the scheduled time.
Farm players’ frozen draft status travels with them in the event of a trade.
Time Limit for each selection is 105 seconds
If your allotted time expires, the pick will be made for you by the computer.
If a player you wish to pick is not available in the system, please NOTIFY THE COMMISSIONER. A substitute player will be selected in the draft and replaced later with the proper player.
Draft picks and next year's draft picks MAY be traded at any time. Any picks that are traded can be used to select draft picks and to keep players. Teams may have multiple picks in any round, but cannot pick more than 41 players in a single draft.
In the case that a team's roster will not be full due to picks traded away, they will have to pick from the remaining free agents after the draft to fill the roster. Once a team has all 41 roster slots filled, regardless of how many draft choices he has, he is done drafting and will surrender all of his remaining picks.
You MUST draft 5 minor league players to fill the minor league portion of your lineup.
CBS League Fee: $130.00
Entry per person: $75.00 ($10 per person to cover web site costs and $65 per person going into the payout pool).
The Reiffer Trading System:
After the all-star break, a team will only be allowed to trade with a team that is within 3 spots of themself in the standings, this leads to teams not being able to throw their players away at the end of the year.
Trade Veto System:
3-Commish veto vote if requested by at least 3 league members.
All payouts will be made within 2 weeks after the regular season’s conclusion.
