FANTASY LEAGUE, ASSEMBLE!!!

pitchers and catchers are due to report very soon, so let's get the ball rolling on planning the league for this season. let's start with a count of who's in and who's out (@eric, co-commish, feel free to help out with this too)

if you're in, post your 7 keepers here. like previously, 6 veterans and 1 prospect. if you don't plan on keeping a prospect (like me), post only 6 vets and plan on being part of the preliminary keeper draft. dates will be announced soon


cabrera
correa
cespedes
bradley
fulmer
carrasco
(prospect)

Dee Gordon, Troy Tulowitzki and Jose Bautista on my trading block. Looking for pitching or a move up in draft picks. Gordon and Tulo won't cost you much with respect to picks.

like i texted you earlier, keep me updated on how that goes. it's looking like we won't need to do a new owner draft if only one team is changing hands, so let's plan on doing a keeper draft right after that, held here, and then the main draft on yahoo, sunday march 26th at 7pm east/4pm pacific. i'd like that to be the exact date but i'm flexible a bit on the time if 4 is too early for the west coasters. plan on putting aside a couple hours to do this in one shot and then we'll be ready to rock

the new 12th team looks likely.

how many rounds will be hosted here? 3?

whatever we can fit in before around this time next sunday. i don't really have a goal. 2 would probably work too, though i'd probably have to identify them as keepers when we switch to the live draft, however many rounds we do here. and i've never done it like this before, but i'm hoping i can manually change individual picks to compensate for any draft picks that changed hands. that's something i haven't looked into yet. if i can't, that's gonna be a problem

4 is a bit too early for me, for what it's worth. would love if we could push it a couple/few hours, but understand if that's just me... shame on me for not checking the board sooner!

I have a feeling we're still gonna be stuck waiting for someone when we do 2-3 rounds on the board. if someone doesn't show up and we're stuck halfway through the 1st round before the online draft, what do we do?

I did an online yahoo draft last night, with the date & time announced 10 days ago (and plenty of reminders after), and still a couple people missed it or were late to it.

so while I would prefer a few quick rounds on the board to keep the old feel of the draft alive, it may be far easier to just get it all over with on yahoo.

Pretty sure the only thing pat can do is import keepers and the 1-12 draft order. He can't custom assign any draft picks that were traded via the board last year. In order for that to work, in the future we would have to offer and accept trades via Yahoo only. So no more unbalanced pick trades where team x trades 2 picks for a player and 1 pick from team y. Same with just pick(s) for player(s) trades. Both teams have to swap the same number of picks. So if I'm not mistaken here, if we want to do a Yahoo draft (which is pretty much the only option this late in the game) we'd have to scrub the any picks involved in trades last season.

Or...

After a quick scan there were only three trades involving picks. So if we keep track of the following 3 picks we should be good: Brad's 7th round is for pat, Pat's 5th round is for Brad, and eric's 5th round pick is for Brad. Brad would then draft a player for eric and pat in his last two rounds and pat would have to draft a player for brad in his last round. Then after the draft pat would manually change those 6 picks to their correct owners. Luckily, as far as I can see, there were only 3 trades involving single picks last year and they only involved 3 managers so that shouldn't be too tricky to pull off.

12th team owner is in - NHC member deadname.

maybe we could start the board part of the draft immediately so that we can definitely finish the draft on yahoo sunday night?

thanks for the heads up jared

eric, yes, once this person is confirmed and provides his keepers (as well as jacob and brandon), we can start. new prospect draft here with hopefully the first couple main rounds also here by sunday. @brad, would 5 pacific work better? i don't want to start too late for the east coast but not too early for you guys so i'm trying to find a happy medium

also, this regards eric, scott, and myself... we will have to resort to a tiebreaker to determine our draft order. we propose going off who had the most 12 point categories, then who had the most 11s, etc. results of that are:

#1/picking 12th - eric (3 12s)
#2/picking 11th - scott (2 12s, 2 11s)
#3/picking 10th - pat (2 12s, 1 11)

i figure that's the easiest and fairest way to do that

also, as always, $20 dues. paypal crookedbeat at gmail or message me for a mailing address

sorry we're kinda starting this in a haste but doing most of this in one day should help alleviate that too. i simply don't have the time or desire lately to coordinate a month-plus long draft and a majority wanted us to change anyway. i wasn't originally one of those latter people last year but things change

thanks dudes

5 is better, will probably have to autodraft for the first part of the draft anyway

If there's any chance at a different day, I'd appreciate it because I'm supposed to help a friend move that day. I might be able to make it work, but I can't be sure yet.
