2010 MC Keeper League


Introduction


This is a competitive league, and active participation is required.
League format is head-to-head with standard 5x5 scoring and two extra DL roster spots.
This is a keeper league; each owner gets to select six players to carry over from the previous season.


Rules & Guidelines


Membership is pre-reserved for returning players. Any spots that aren't claimed by the deadline will then be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis to newcomers. Unclaimed rosters will be distributed to newcomers via a re-distribution draft held in this forum. The commissioner has the final say in all memberships.


Draft order will be determined by the final standings of the previous year, with the highest seed drafting at the lowest draft position and the order reversing with each subsequent round. The official draft order will be posted in this thread no less than one week prior to the date of the live draft.


Waiver priority is determined by carrying over each manager's priority from the end of the previous season. New managers will inherit the waiver priority of the team whose draft position they receive. During the regular season, new players will be added to the waiver wire only when they are called up to the Majors. Finally, waiver priority may be traded.


Keepers must be selected and posted before the live draft. Your list of keepers must be finalized and posted in this thread (or sent to me directly) by the deadline in order to be confirmed. You must post all six of your keepers to be your first six players drafted in the league. Free selection of all remaining free agents will begin in the 7th round.


Trades may be made during both the pre-season and regular season (see league schedule for deadlines). All trades are automatic upon agreement and may only be overturned within 72 hours by the commissioner (TheZenador). If TheZenador is involved in a trade, the backup trade regulator is appointed (KingCorran). Pre-season trades that have been agreed upon by both sides must be posted in this thread in order to be confirmed. Waiver trades may be agreed upon any time during the regular season, but must be stated in this thread by one or both involved parties in order to be confirmed. When a waiver trade has been confirmed it will be instated via manual roster edits made by the commissioner. Trades involving individual draft picks are allowed only in the offseason, and only picks for the upcoming draft are allowed. KingCorran deals with draft pick trading. Any trades made after their respective deadlines will be void, unless they are waiver deals that were agreed upon earlier in the season.


League activity is required. Regular roster maintenence at least once a week is requested. Any player who goes more than two weeks with no league activity will be contacted about the issue and, if necessary, locked out of the league and replaced the next season. If, for any reason, during the course of the season you cannot maintain your roster for an extended period of time, you may contact me so that I can adjust your roster for you during that time. Please note: League activity is defined simply as logging on to the league site and/or making roster adjustments (rotating out your inactive players).


Rule changes may be proposed to the league by any player in this thread only. League participants will then vote on the proposed rule change. If the proposal receives a two-thirds majority vote in favor, it will go into effect. Non-votes count as negative votes. The commissioner retains the right to veto any proposal and may only be overruled by a three-quarter (75%) vote by the remaining members of the league.



Additional Info


The league schedule is in the game info above and will be kept up-to-date.
Click here to view the final 2009 standings and full rosters.
Any rules or settings not specified above are set to the Yahoo! defaults.
New owners might find it helpful to view last season's Keeper Redistribution draft if there are any questions regarding this process. I will make a new thread for this years draft once the new owners are chosen.



This post may be updated with any rule changes or adjustments that occur between now and the end of the season. If anybody has any questions or concerns about any of these rules or the league itself, please feel free to post them here in this thread or contact me directly via PM.

Rule Change Proposal:

I propose that, since Y! changed their rookie player system to include vastly more 40-man-but-not-25-man players last year... that we switch to the option that only adds players to league availability when they are actually called up to the majors. If you guy drops down to MiLB, the system would let you keep him as long as you continue to roster him... but if you dropped him, he'd disappear until he was called up again. (See Kendrick last year).

I think this would make waiver claims much more meaningful this year, as they were in the past. Last year, the waiver wire was BO-O-O-R-I-N-G... because everyone worth putting a claim on was already in the system months before they were called up (see Tillman). I strongly feel this would improve the league, and ask y'all to vote to make this change.

TZ - could you run an official league poll on this?

I have updated my roster to reflect my current players of interest. My door is always open for deals, so if I have a player you are interested in - more than likely we can work something out.

Cheers.

Robinson Cano (2B-NYY) .300 100/25/100 potential at a PREMIUM position.

Geo Soto (C-CHC) Sophmore Season curse? I think so... The kid can rake!
