Who to Start Message Board
I'm planning on starting a 20 team, head-to-head, 2 division (AL,NL), keeper league. The playoff format will probably be the top team 4 teams from both divisions make the playoffs. The draft order will be random. The league votes on trades. We'll use the Yahoo! Can't Cut List. There will be a 3 day waiver time.
The positions will be:
25 players just like a real team.
The stats will be:
Batting Average, Home Runs, Runs Batted In, Runs, Hits, Stolen Bases, and On Base Percentage
Wins, Earned Run Average, Strike Outs, Walks, Saves, Holds, and Fielding Percentage
I'm asking know because the people who still check fantasy baseball are true fans. Please be ready to play multiple years. The stats can be changed if the majority of the league decides to. If you are interested in joining leave your name, email address, favorite team (will be your team name. No repeats please), and a short statement saying you will be an active manager. Please ask questions or leave comments.
(sorry its so long)

I was trying to keep it realistic with a real MLB team. 1 C,1B,2B,3B,SS, 3 OF, and 1 U. I had 5 starting pitchers because most teams have a 5 man rotation and 3 relievers because of a closer and 2 setups. I also originally had 1 Pitcher spot (SP or RP) but I think I may drop that one and add another Utility. So in my opinion I say we have a C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 U, 5 SP, 3 RP, and 7 BN. (25 Man Roster)
To make managers active there will be a minimum innings pitched rule. How many innings should it be? I'm guessing 35-50 since we will all have 8 pitchers and a few more on the bench.

I'm not really sure about the exact number, but you should also make a maximum number of innings pitched. I'm not sure if people have ever done it in your leagues, but in my leagues in the past people have just picked up a few new pitchers each day so they would win strikeouts and wins every week. It was an unfair advantage.

Count me in. Active manager who has been playing fantasy baseball for 20+ years. Eric, I will send you an email so you have mine, and any other details you need. Put me down for the Indians. Looking forward to it.
Also wanted to chime in on a couple of the other subjects in here...
I would suggest setting a max number of moves teams are permitted to make each week or over the course of the entire season. Adds to the H2H strategy and helps curtail streaming. I'm in another 20-teamer that allows 5 per week and it works out well.
Would also suggest setting min number of innings per week. Figure 5 innings per starter and one start per week, plus 5 innings total from your relievers. With the 5 SP structure you are proposing, a min of 30 innings would probably work out well.
I would be careful with the "League Votes" setting for trades. IMO, if you have a strong commissioner (and judging from the posts here, you seem to fit the bill) it is really unnecessary. That setting tends to result in arguments and hard feelings. If someone feels a trade is unfair, allow them to send a protest to you, the commissioner, and you have final veto authority. Just my $0.02.

I would love to join a league like this. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My favorite team is the Red Sox but since they are taken would be happy with the Cards. Have wondered how the keeper leagues worked.
Questions: Will it be daily or weekly line-ups? I have seen max inning per year, can you set it for max inning per night? What about max moves/trades/DL?
