Can we do pre-draft trades (for players or picks, as long as each team involved ends the deal with 20 players+picks) or do you think that would become to confusing?

Personally I'm fine with it, just make sure everything is done by lets say 5pm Eastern, Sunday. That way if I have to do any last minute adjustments to the draft lineup it'll be ready by Monday

I don't know what your plans were... if they were to trade up or trade down or just to trade players. If someone does end up with multiple picks in one round or no picks in a round it is going to make things a little more complicated. Basically if that did happen when I enter the draft into yahoo the rounds of some guys are not going to be correct due to the fact that a team can't have 2 picks in one round in the yahoo setup. Essentially, the yahoo draft results on our team page won't be the official results to base your end of the year keepers on. It'd be the draft results in this thread in the first post.

I don't know what the rest of the league thinks about it but I know I am not against it. If anyone hates the idea and is strongly against it say so or pm me. I've thought of it before and thought it could be a fun idea to try. We can try it and if it ends up being a trainwreck we'll just forget it ever happened.

Anyways... seems like most everyone is fine with the same rules from last year in Part One of the survey. Anyone in favor of changing the minimum innings requirements for the teams pitching staff or changing the waiver wire time from 2 days to 1 day?

I know Chris and I both are in favor of dropping the waiver time to 1 day, but we appear to be the only ones. I think altering the pitching requirements won't make a difference though. Seems like if your staff is going to suck during a certain week you'll end up losing regardless.

I'll support the waiver shifting to 1 day and I'm not against pre-draft trades.

1 day waiver is good.

Ok, it seems like there is strong support for 1 day waiver wire. I think we'll go with that this year. Pitching Innings is going to stay the same though. It looks like no trades are going to go down since nothing has been posted. We’ll try and get some better rules for it and get a longer window for it next year as opposed to the 1 week we had this year.

So we're gonna start drafting on Monday and VX is gonna start things off with the first pick.

We're gonna use the same basic rules as we did last year with the draft. I'll post the general rules for the new managers.

Once you are on the clock you have 24 hours to make a selection. You have 24 hours following the post of the previous person to make your selection. Your pick becomes 'suspended'. Meaning, your place in the draft order is skipped and the next manager can make his selection and so on. For the person that has the suspended pick, you can jump back in to the draft and make your pick whenever you finally get around to doing it.

If a player is not in the yahoo player pool he can not be drafted. This is usually not an issue until the 2nd half of the draft when people start looking for rookies. If you do draft someone that isn't in the player pool, you'll be told to select a new player.

If you know you’re going to be out of town or unable to check a computer for a few days, it’s a good idea to send someone some preranked players so they can post it for you.

In the event that you pick someone that has either already been selected or is a keeper, you will have to select a new player. If the team after you makes a selection prior to you correcting your pick, the player the team after you selected is their property and you can not select them. Moral of the story, check the draft results in post 1 and check the keepers in post 2 prior to making a selection.

Chris has sent me some preranks since he’s on vacation right now so he’s all set even though he won’t be around for few rounds.

When making your pick, make sure you put down the players name and all that good stuff. Pictures are not required, but are encouraged.

So, are we going to get to log in to a specific yahoo league or what? I need to be able to look at the players and their ranking to make the first pick. SO MUCH PRESSURE!

EDIT: Wait, I think I take that back. This works quite a bit differently than we do it in the Fantasy NBA league here, and I like that everyone can only keep a certain keeper per round. I think in that case, I have the perfect first pick. More to come later.

Also remember to PM the person after you once you pick to keep things "moving" although there's usually a cluster of 5-6 guys on at once who are all in a row so...

The yahoo league will get created once yahoo has that stuff up. There's a list of players that are keepers in the 2nd post. I think they normally get the league pages up around the middle of February. Until then you'll have to find an alternate source for player rankings. I think yahoo has already started doing their power rankings and I've already seen the Baseball Magazines starting to hit stores.

So, I want to get this keeper thing straight. Forgive my ignorance/stupidity here, as this is a bit more complex than other fantasy leagues I'm used to.

I noticed in the rounds everyone has a keeper pick for each round.. does that mean that if I want to draft a player that's in, say, the 7th round or whatever, it's okay for me to draft them in the first round, and that person gets their pick back? Or is every keeper completely off-limits?

Just needed to clarify that so I can make a better decision for a first pick.

Keepers are completely off limits. They're already part of a team.

Any baseball player's name that is already in post 1 or post 2 is already on a team and cannot be drafted.

This reminds me of an NFL draft where the no.1 pick was signed the night before and you just want them to walk up, say "Pujols bitches", and move on to the picks with real decisions to be made.

cheech made the pick I was going to make if I didn't take Pujols. The one attractive thing about Rollins is that there's not a lot of quality at SS left..
