TGIF Fantasy Baseball *KEEPER* League.
We are re-establishing a `KEEPER` League which was dead last year. All the previous owners have been notified but it is first in - first served. After the first season 5 `Franchise Players` are to be kept on each TEAM for the second year. These are available to the rest of the league the following (3rd) year and each team selects 5 New `Franchise Players`. The previous owners may re-draft their players again in the third year and add to the new `Franchise Players` which they plan to keep after the second year. No Player can be kept longer than 2 years out of a draft unless they are re-drafted and made a `Franchise Players` again.
Example: You draft A-Rod this year, you may keep him next year as a `Franchise Player`. Prior to the third year each owner selects a new "base" of `Franchise Players` then A-Rod goes back into the draft pool... along with the other 4 keepers and can be picked up again and he may be kept 2 more years by that previous owner or if another owner drafts him he may keep him 2 years.
Each year 5 players are "Franchised", no player is out of the draft pool longer than 2 years. Trades are critical after the beginning of the second year. They still go back to the pool even though you traded for a keeper and had the player only a few months. This has been a very good format and mixes up the draft every year... after the second year. Plus trades for potential keepers in the second year are scrutinized by owners too.
Franchise Fee is $200 (and $10 each team for the Website and stat service - the first year)... the second year is $9 each team. Owners can vote to establish fees for transaction activities by league vote if thius is desired.
