Hi, All - -EDITED TO ADD FURTHER INFORMATION
AL-only auction keeper league in its fifth season has a vacancy.
This is a ten-team league, standard 5x5 rotisserie categorical scoring, keep minimum five, maximum ten from year to year. Active rosters are 14 hitters (C, C, 1, 2, 3, SS, MI, CI, 5 OF, UT/DH) and 9 pitchers (any variety, although there is a minimum IP floor), plus a 17-man reserve roster. The active roster is acquired by Auction, and the reserve roster by a subsequent 17-round snake Draft. Active-roster salary cap is $260 on Auction Day, expanding to $300 immediately thereafter for the remainder of the season. There are weekly transactions, trading until September, and weekly FA claims; each team gets $100 FAAB.
Each offseason, all players who are not rookies in MLB get a $5 raise in salary. Rookies/minor leaguers don't get the raise.
Entry fee is $100. The stat fee (CBS) is about $130 to $140; first and second place get cash prizes, while 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th get salary reductions off of one player the following season. No trade or transaction fees (except for September roster expansion, in which franchises can add one hitter and/or one pitcher whose salaries don't count for the rest of the season; there is a fee for this). Everything except the stat fee goes into the prize pool.
The Commissioner is a dues-paying member. We'll be expanding to 11 teams next season when the DisAstros switch over, but for 2012 it will remain a ten-team league. Online Auction and Draft via CBS to be held on Sunday, April 15 at 1 P.M. Eastern/10 A.M. Pacific.
Usually takes about four hours to complete, maybe less. Owners from anywhere welcome; we have three in California, and the rest on the East Coast (NYC/NJ/Philly). Great bunch of guys, very collegial, active traders, highly competitive, stable ownership group except for this situation. We had a surprise vacancy and are looking to fill it with an experienced, competitive, fundamentally nice person (imagine!) right away. The orphaned team has a pretty decent keeper list.
