    Opening in 7th year keeper

    Hey guys,
    I run a keeper league that's been going since 2008 we had a GM go MIA on us and need someone to replace him. I'm looking for a GM that can be active year round, we take breaks for holidays. We start our draft in November and that takes a few months to complete. Anyways if you are interested reply to this or email me at rydcooper88@gmail.com. Please read the league rules and team roster before responding. I will point out we are a unique league where we do not do add/drops during the season. However we do have 2 DL spots teams can use for season ending injuries.I will reply with league rules and the team roster.

        Scoring Rules:

        Categories:
        Batting: R, SB, HR, RBI,AVG, SO, OBP, SLG, TB
        Pitching: W,L,SV, K, ERA, Whip, K/9, QS, H

        How to determine a win:

        Each category is worth on point. So each week a team can get up to 16 points total. Who ever has the most points against their respective opponent gets 1 win. The person with the least amount of points gets 1 loss.

        - A team can have no less then 25 innings pitched. A team with 24.2 or less innings will forfiet all pitching categories that week.

        All 12 teams are divided into two divisions:
        American League
        National League
        The top three teams from each division will participate in the play-offs. The number 1 seed from each division will have a first week bye. The league champion from each league will play for the league championship.

        Minimum Innings Pitched Rule:
        - Each week the commissioner will figure out the average of innings pitched throughout the league.
        Averageis determined by: All teams innings pitched totaled divided by 12.
        Example: If all teams had a total of 500 innings pitched. 500 divided by 12 is about 41.6 (Commissioner will round down to the next whole number.) So the average would be 41 innings.
        - All teams that meet or exceed the average will be fine.
        - All other teams will be alloted 12 inning curve. Meaning a team must be with-in 12 innings of the average to be eligable.
        - All teams tha do not meet the required min. innings pitched will forfiet ALL pitching categories.
        -Commissioner holds the right to grant teams "Extreme Circumstances"
        Extreme Circumstances are as follows but not limited to:
        1. Excessive Rain outs (postponed games)
        2. Excessive Injuries (non-preexsistin)
        3. Excessive short outings (pitchers did not pitch many innings)
        4. Atleast 4 teams do not meet league minimum. Rule will be voided for that week.
        5. Team did not bench any pitchers and still did not meet minimum

        Extreme Circumstances do not count if team bench pitchers through out week that could have met league minimum.

        Minimum At Bats Rule:
        - Each week the commissioner will figure out the average of AT BATS throughout the league.
        Average is determined by: All teams AT BATS totaled divided by 12.
        Example: If all teams had a total of 3000 at bats. 3000 divided by 12 is about 250 at bats (Commissioner will round down to the next whole number.)
        - All teams that meet or exceed the average will be fine.
        - All other teams will be alloted 75 at bats. Meaning a team must be with-in 75 at bats of the average to be eligable.
        - All teams that do not meet the required AT BATS will forfiet ALL Batting categories.
        -Commissioner holds the right to grant teams "Extreme Circumstances"
        Extreme Circumstances are as follows but not limited to:
        1. Excessive Rain outs (postponed games)
        2. Excessive Injuries (non-pre exsisting)
        3. Team had an average of 7 batters on the daily active roster and still did not meet the minimum AT BAT rule
        4. Atleast 4 teams do not meet league minimum. Rule will be voided for that week.
        Extreme Circumstances do not count if team bench starters through out week that could have met league minimum.

        Scheduling Rules:

        -Teams play 20 games per regular season
        -Teams play 15 divisional games, meaning teams play each divisional team a total of 3 times
        -Teams play 5 interleague games, meaning teams play 5 teams from the other division a total of 1 time. Which means teams will not play 1 team from the opposite division. This will continue on a cycle, the team you do not play one year you will play the following year.

        The schedule works in the following way:

        Weeks 1-5 are divisional games
        Weeks 6-15 alternate each week from divisional games and interleague
        Week 16* is a bye week All-Stars
        Weeks 17-21 are divisional games
        Weeks 22-23 are play-offs
        Weeks 24-25 is 2 week Championship
        *-All star week falls on different weeks occasionally, but is always a bye week

        Play-Off Rules:

        - Minimum At Bat and Innings Pitch are in effect
        -Top three teams from each division play in the play-offs
        -Both Number one seeds have 1st week bye of play-offs
        -Seeds 2 and 3 from each division play first week.
        -Winner of each division championship plays each other in Grid Iron Championship game (Week 3 of play-offs)
        -Grid Iron Championship game will be 2 weeks long. Winner is determined by score over both weeks
        -No teams can add/drop players during play-offs
        - Disabled list moves are not allowed during the play-offs
        -No team can trade
        -If a tie occurs during the play-offs (not including the Championship game) the tiebreaker will be determined by opponent match up during regular season. If there happens to be a tie with that, tie breaker will be division record. In the event there is a third tie breaker needed the team with the best regular season record wins.
        - If a tie occurs during the Grid Iron Championship Game the tie breaker will go to stats made with players on the bench. If for some reason theres a tie with stats the tie breakers will follow the play-off tie breakers.
