We need a reliable, mature owner for a 12-team 6x6 keeper league run on Yahoo, that will be entering its 3rd season for 2009. Each team keeps 4-7 MLBers for the following year and up to 4 MiLBers.
The detailed constitution is below (and we'll probably make some minor tweaks to the rules before heading into next year by limiting the moves to 100 or so, and requiring farm players to meet MLB rookie requirements [<130 AB, <50 IP] for the current season.)
The available team's roster is below. If you're interested, please reply to this thread or send me a PM.

A. Trading deadline - Aug 16 - Oct 1

A. 4-7 MLB keepers

D. Minor League Keepers can be kept a maximum of 5x each. If a minor league prospect reaches 130AB or 50IP in a particular season, they may still be kept as a minor league keeper at the end of that season. However, if you wish to keep them the following year, they will be considered an MLB keeper from that point forward.
A. In season trades can be reviewed and/or vetoed via the Yahoo system! Off-season trades should be posted on the "Trades for Review" board, and will be reviewed for 1 week before being considered completed.
B. In the event there is sufficient evidence for collusion any veto or trade approval may be canceled by the commissioner, however it is the official policy of this league that trades should stand as long as the trade isn't clearly one-sided.
C. All players, prospects, and draft picks may be traded at any point during the season or in the off-season.
VIII. Draft - MLB starts the 1st Friday of each year / Prospect to follow
A. MLB draft will not include players with rookie status (less than 130 at bats or 50 innings pitched). These players are reserved for the minor league draft.
B. MLB Draft will start with 3 Supplemental Rounds that precede the MLB Draft (see below for example). The MLB Draft runs from the last place team to first place team, and teams will join the draft in order based on their keeper number until all 12 teams are drafting. This is round 1 of the reguar draft and will continue until all roster spots are full.
C. Minor League Draft will start with the first place team. It will be a slow snake draft also, will operate the exact opposite of the MLB draft, and will continue until all roster spots are full.
D. 3 Rounds of "Supplemental Draft" will precede both the MLB and minor league draft for managers keeping less than 7 MLB players and 4 Minor Leaguers. The supplemental and regular draft will operate as follows.
Round 1 Supp - Teams with 4 keepers
Round 2 Supp - Teams with 4 & 5 keepers
Round 3 Supp - Teams with 4, 5, or 6 keepers
Round 1 Reg - All Teams - Snake draft continues from Round 3
Supplemental Round 3 until the final round.
This process is repeated in the minors draft for 2-4 minor league keepers.
Each manager has 12 hours after the previous pick to draft their player. If they do not draft in the time the draft will continue without them, however they can make up that pick at any time. If a manager is consistently missing their picks, the commissioner may opt to replace that manager. During the draft, a manager may change their pick only before the next manager has chosen a player.
IX. Roster Changes
A. Standard 2 day waiver period applies to all dropped players and all players not initially drafted (after the league is setup at Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball).
B. Roster changes will be daily.
X. Adding Unclaimed Prospects
A. Unclaimed prospects promoted to their parent club are free agents and can be claimed either through the waiver process or just a straight add (depending on their status).
B. No prospect on another teams minor league roster may be claimed, even if they're immediately promoted to their parent club and contributing.
XI. Other Rules
A. All Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball rules applicable here.
