Looking for people who will stay with us for years, obviously. If people quit and we can't find replacements for future years, we can just turn it into a redraft league but let's not let that happen.
Settings are negotiable to a point. They have been established and tweaked over years of a non keeper league with returning players. [b]We will be using leaguesafe.
We have done our best to limit people picking up players just for a start to win k's or wins by adding loses and switching k's to k/9 so it's more about quality then quantity for the most part. To balance out the hitting cats we've added ops and that has worked out great.
This seasons draft will be normal. You will then select 4 keepers for next year. They will be kept according to the round they we're drafted in. For example, if you drafted (or traded for) Adam Wainwright in the 9th and want to keep him, he will count as your 9th round pick for next year. Any player that you wish to keep that was not drafted will have his keeper value correspond to his next years o-rank. For example, if you picked up Bryce Harper off waivers and next year he's listed as a 113 0-rank, he would be your 9th round keeper. If you kept him and Wainwright, one of them would slide down to your 10th round. You can keep any players that you want on your final roster. You can make off season trades for people that you are keeping.
If you have people that are interested, active, quality managers, have them e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
