Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
We're a 3rd year keeper league looking to replace 3 teams. We are a competitive, active group and we are seeking 3 active managers, 60+% performance preferred. Each year we keep 4 players, and they occupy the round in the draft that they were selected in previously. You would be inheriting a roster from a previous owner and would then pick 4 players from that roster to keep. Once you sign in to the league, the commish will assign you a former manager's roster.
Look over the commish note below to learn about the league, then join the fun!
League ID: 148387
Live Draft: Sat Mar 6 8:00am PST
This is a 4 PLAYER KEEPER LEAGUE!
You have till next season to select your keepers. You must pick them within 2 days of signing back in for the next season. The Commish will post his keepers on the league page as soon as he creates the league so all can see but everyone else should send them direct to me without posting, I will post them when I get them all (this will give the commish no advantage).
Basically, you can keep any player, any round. In the draft, you would lose the spot in which your keeper was originally taken. Makes no difference which team your keeper was orginally on, you must use that round. Example: Tommy John was taken by team A in the 5th round. Team A then waves Tommy John and Team C picks him up as a FA. This would cost Team C its 5th round pick if he is a keeper.
Some exceptions to this rule:
1- If you are keeping 2 players that were drafted in the same round you will lose that round and the previous round. (for first round picks, it would be your 2nd round)
Example 1: Gary Carter was taken by Team C in the 5th round but he also now wants to Keep Tommy John which he picked up as a FA (team A drafted him in the 5th round and then released him) This would cause Team C to lose his 5th and 4th round picks.
Example 2: If in the previous example, Gary Carter might count as the 5th round pick and Tommy John the 4th round. If in the following year, Teams C elects to keep Tommy John, but NOT Gary Carter, he would return to being the 5th round pick, as keepers will occupy the round originally drafted in, whenever possible.
2- If a player was undrafted last year, he would take up your last round pick.
3- Any Rookies (defined by MLB) picked up over the course of the year will count as a 10th round pick.
Trading keepers and draft spots will follow the current veto rules.
We always draft the same # players, each keeper will simply replace a draft pick (which is the pick you drafted your keeper from last years with some exception as stated previously)

Here are the 3 teams. We have 1 manager already signed up, so one of these will be gone soon. Again, you keep 4 of the players on the team and they occupy the round they were originally taken in.
Interested in joining your keeper league. Have been playing fantasy baseball for over 10 years. Took last year off but want to get back into a competitive league. I check my team on a daily basis and am a very active owner.
LMK if you are interested in talking further!
