2011 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.


Keepers must be selected before the live draft. Your list of 4-6 keepers must be finalized and sent privately to the commissioner (or his representative) before the deadline in order to be confirmed. If a keeper list is not turned in, the commissioner will select the top 6 players by Yahoo O-Rank from that team's available roster to be their 6 keepers.


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. Teams that retain only 5 keepers will be awarded a pick at their usual spot in Round 6 (which is a reversed order round); teams that retain only 4 keepers will also be awarded a pick at their usual spot in Round 5 (which is a normal order round). Selection of non-kept players will begin in Rounds 5 and 6 (for teams with picks in those rounds), and for all teams in Round 7. The official draft order will be posted in this thread after all keeper selections have been finalized, no less than three days 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.


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. Draft pick trades of any kind are not permitted. 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 2010 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.

Will trade multiple players for one player, one player for multiple, trade for draft picks, trade away draft picks, whatever it takes to get a deal done that I feel will help my 2011 squad and the team I am trading with.

I have this nice little button down at the bottom of your post that says 'unapprove'. I don't think I ever had a trade offer I 'unapproved of' more, so...

Joakin Soria RP
Tommy Hansen SP
Yovanni Gallardo SP

Pedro Alvarez 3B After a .939 OPS in September Alvarez is primed to take off. Huge HR potential
Starlin Castro SS Hit .300 as a 20 year old. He'll become one of the elite SS
Brett Gardner OF Even being injured had 477 ABs, scoring 97 runs and stealing 47 bases. With full health watch out
Colby Rasmus OF Solid sophmore season, he's primed to take off
Martin Prado 2B .300 hitter growing into power, eligible at 2B, 3B, and soon OF. 16 HRs last year with injury. Expect high average and 20 HRs
Chris Carpenter SP Annual CY candidate
Phillip Hughes SP Developing yankee stud
John Axford RP 26 saves 2.43 ERA 1.27 WHIP
Trevor Cahill SP 22 years old with 18 wins, 2.97 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, great keeper candidate
Chris Perez RP 23 saves 1.71 ERA, 1.08 WHIP Cleveland's now and future closer.

Any and all are available for draft pick swaps or player trades.

Also - Kirk Dickson (Bautista Crunch) is rejoining us this year. He's renaming his MC account, so once Lonnie finds his submission hiding in the trash heap, I assume we'll hear from him here and in the Y! league. =)
