16 team 6x6 H2H keeper where you can keep guys for their draft round. I was out of the playoffs at the trade deadline and had a tough schedule to close out the year. So I sold off most of my stars for keepers. Only guy I kept was Ryan Howard and the guys I traded for were guys like Myers, Bush, Kemp, Iannetta, etc. Well I just happened to get hot and crushed my final 3 teams in the regular season to finish 4th. Then went on to win the 3 rounds of the playoffs. So I built for next year and still won this year. Needless to say my leaguemates weren't very happy with me. !+)
