    It's getting to about that time when we need to start saying who is in and making any suggested changes to league format.

    One thing I want to do this season is put together a chart of Team Names and the Allbuffs name of the person who owns each respective team. It's easier to propose trades or at least have the trade discussion through the PM system here than through yahoo proposals, so it's good to have that info. I'll put it in a chart in this OP. When you confirm that you're in with a post in this thread, also post your team name.

    JimmyBuff, I assume, will step up with the rest of the league management issues. Including that we need some guidance on our keeper draft positions for 2015.

    I'm concerned about whether [MENTION=57]JimmyBuff[/MENTION] is still with us. It looks like he hasn't posted or PM'd on the AB board since mid-October.

    I'm in and if Jimmy has retired from the interwebs, I can create/commish if the need shall arise.

    Thanks. This league is the only thing that keeps me paying attention to baseball and having something going on as a sports fan during the long summer months.

    I will look up the keeper rules later this week...



    Looking to have the draft probably the 3rd weekend of March, Sunday at 8 Pacific is usually what we do..


    I have renewed the league.. If you were in the league last year you should be getting an email with an invite. . If you weren't in the league and want to join it for this year you have to email me your yahoo email address so I can send you an invite..

    Everyone post your team name when you say you're in so that I can get the OP table done.

    Don't assume I remember what team is yours from years past. I almost certainly don't. :lol:

    8 confirmed teams so far so we need at least 2 more.. Send me an email and I will send you an invite here..


    Keeper rules: Same rules as last year, 5 keepers. Waiver claims that weren't drafted and want to be used as keepers are 12th rounders. Keepers used for the 2nd straight year forfeit a draft pick by either 10 rounds or by half of where they were taken the year before whichever one is less. (Case in point, say you've had a 10th round keeper for last year and you want to use it again for 2014. You will forfeit a 5th round pick this year instead of a 10th rounder. If you have a 25th round keeper that you want to keep again you will forfeit a 15th round pick this year.)



    I think we will have our draft on Sunday March 29 at 7 PM pacific time.. Let me know if that's not a good time for anyone..




    Remember for keepers rules: THE DRAFT FROM LAST YEAR IS GOLD.. If someone released a player last yr and he was drafted in the 23rd round and you picked him up and want to keep him for this year, then you would forfeit your 23rd round pick. If someone dropped a player they drafted in the 4th round last year and you picked him up on waivers and want to keep him for this upcoming year, then you would forfeit a 4th round pick this year.

    I took over Junction's team at the end of last year. I'll be keeping 5 players and I see 3 were taken in the following rounds: 2, 7, 30 while two were picked up off waivers. My guess is that I lose a pick this year in the 1st, 3rd or 4th, 12th, 13th and 15th? I wanna just have a clear idea of where my picks line up if I end up having to auto-draft.

    Also, I'm not sure I can make the live draft as much as I would like to do it. I live in Germany so Sunday at 7 PM Pacific is (I think) circa 5am for me, but an hour later would work for me. I could also do earlier than 2 PM Pacific, but you don't gotta accommodate for me if everybody agrees the time you propose is best.

    I can't do that weekend. I'll be completely off the grid from 3/27 - 3/30 (late at night). So anytime before 3/27 and starting on 3/31. Works for me. Sorry to be difficult. Night time is usually better. I'm west coast, PT.

    How do we see who we kept previously so we don't keep them again? I can remember 4 for sure but not the fifth.

    I picked up a couple of solid players at the end of last year (Tulo, Fielder) with the intent of keeping them to use this year is there a place I can see where they were drafted last year so I know what I'm losing in order to keep them?

    From the main league page you can switch the years via drop down box. Select 2014 then go to draft results under the header.

    I just want to make sure I have the right values. Trying to get them in before midnight here. Are we rounding down or up on half rnds?

    I've been wondering something similar myself. Since I'm living in Europe the current draft time is 4am so the likelihood I'm awake for the live draft is slim to none. I'll be pretty dependent on pre-rankings this year and would also appreciate some clarification on the above question.

    Insert standard complaint about missing keeper deadline.
