    Explain please?

    An existing 12 team keeper league that has been going on for '8 years', they used to keep 10, then 15 now it's 28/30. They roster 15 active batters/day, 28 cats to fill. 30 roster spots available.

    The commish comes on here every year looking for 'the best' replacement managers to take over the teams that can't keep managers since it's impossible to be competitive with the team I'll list below, let alone some others. As a general rule in situations like this, as a "replacement manager", you get the team given to you that's open. There are 5-6 stripped teams needing replacement managers almost yearly, it's kind of a joke.

    One team in this 12 team league:

    C- AJ Ellis
    1B- Pujols
    2B- Ackley
    3B- Longoria
    SS- Tulowitzki
    CI- LaHair
    MI- Rollins
    LF- Braun
    CF- Granderson
    Utilx3- Gardner, Middlebrooks, Walker, Murphy, Belt, Boujos

    SP-Halladay, Price, Hellickson, McCarthy, Samardjzia, Marshall , Valverde, Adams, Walden, Storen, Bauer

    Point is, never take over for an existing league's open team if you want a chance, you're very unlikely to be given much to work with. They're just looking for replacement suckers to keep the 5-6 circle jerker teams with competitive rosters active. Especially if keepers are pretty much the whole team, you won't be able to reload yours in the following year's draft since there mostly won't be anything to work with.
