    4 player keeper league openings

    We're a 5th year keeper league looking to replace 5 teams (12 team league). We are a competitive, active group and we are seeking 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 (then move up one round every year kept afterward). You would be inheriting a roster from a previous owner and would then pick 4 players from that roster to keep.
    Look over the commish note below to learn about the league, then email me to get the password: lencioni@email.com
    If you have favorite players/teams, let me know that and i'll try to give you a team that you might like.

    Live Draft: Sat Mar 24 9:00am PST

    commish note:

    You'll pick your 4 keepers on the league page. Look back at last year's league pages if you need to figure out which round your keeper would take up, or feel free to email me if you have a question about rounds. 

    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)
