2020 Thread

The 2021 season is basically a continuation of the short 2020 season.

I'm going to set a hard deadline of January 15th to turn in keepers. After that date, I will just declare keepers for your team. We are keeping 16 this year since last season was a truncated season due to the pandemic. After this 2021 season the plan is to go back to keeping the usual 8 keepers. This could change though, we'll see.

Format. We're back to our standard Head 2 Head scoring format this season. With the truncated 2020 season, we did Roto scoring last year. Back to the usual H2H this season.
Runs, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
QS, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP
Minimum Innings Requirement: 32.0

Draft Order. We're going to do 5 rounds this year. As stated last year, the order this season will be set based on the regular season finishes from last season. In order to prohibit tanking last year, we determined best record gets the first pick, second best gets the second pick, and so on. We are also using a non-snaking order for this year. The official draft order is listed below.

You'll notice I have an injury exemption/opt out round listed after round 2. This will be for any team that suffers a season ending injury or player opt out after the keeper deadline has passes. The team can throw out that keeper and replace it with this replacement draft pick. If the injury exemption/opt out happens prior to the draft, a keeper substitution could also be an option instead of the replacement draft pick option.

Compensatory round. This round is going to be for managers taking over open/available teams. It's happening after Round One.

If a mod dawg could pin this thread and unpin the 2020 one, I would appreciate it.

Fantasy Baseball League Rules

*Last Modified 1-3-21*

A. Teams can select a maximum of 16 keepers of any position.

B. Teams can choose to keep less than 16 keepers.

C. All keepers must be turned in by January 15th.

D. If keepers are not submitted by the deadline date, the team is considered open and a replacement manager will be found. Keepers lock on the deadline for all teams. Any remaining players that were listed as not kept after the deadline become free agents for the draft. They are no longer under your team control.

E. 2020 League Settings:
14 Teams - H2H (shrunk down from 16 in 2019)
Daily - Tomorrow
Free Agent roster moves per week 3
**Minimum Innings Pitched: 32.0

Stat Categories:
R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
QS, SV, HLD, K, ERA, WHIP

Rosters:
21 Total Active Spots
Hitting: C, 1b, 2b, 3b, SS, OF, OF OF, Utility
Pitching: SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P
Other: BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, NA, NA, NA, DL, DL, DL

F. If a team keeps less than the maximum number of keepers, EIGHT, they will receive a compensatory round draft pick for every spot below the maximum.

G. A team will NOT receive a compensatory pick if they trade a keeper after the keeper due date deadline. Even if you trade a keeper after the deadline and drop below the 8 keeper max, you will NOT receive a compensatory round pick. Compensatory picks assigned for being under the 8 keeper maximum are assigned immedately following the keeper deadline. Comp picks for this will not be assigned again later on.

H. The compensatory round takes place after Round One in the draft. Compensatory picks are slotted based on worst to best end of regular season standings results. If a team has a second compensatory round pick, it is slotted in the same manner after all of the other team's first compensatory round picks arr slotted. Compensatory round picks may be given out at the discretion of the commish under other circumstances.

I. Injured/Retired/Unsigned/Suspended keeper exemption. If a manager decides not to keep a player after the keeper deadline takes effect they can cut said player. However, they can not add any other player from their roster as a replacement. Instead, they will be awarded a compensatory pick at the end of the compensatory round. If a manager decides to cut a player during the draft, they will be awarded a pick at the end of the draft, better than nothing. If a player is cut during the draft, that player is ineligible to be drafted by any other team. The player is essentially on waivers and can be added after the draft through waivers. A player can not be cut if he is not seriously injured, retired, unsigned, or suspended. A significant injury is classified as something to cause a player to miss at least half the season. Example, broken leg/arm, acl tear, tommy john surgery.

J. The draft. The draft is ten rounds, serpentine, worst regular season record to best for slotting. Consolation Winner receives the first pick in the draft. This is an extra pick. If the consolation winner leaves the league, than the prize is vacated for that season. The remainder of a team's roster is filled by post draft waivers. Those post draft waivers are slotted worst end of regular season record to best. Teams incurring time limit delays 2 or more during the draft lose their spot and go to the end of the line. After the initial post-draft waiver period passes, the waivers are reset to the initial ordering for the regular season. There is no benefit to not use your waiver claim spot after the draft. If you do not fill your roster at all prior to the waivers being reset, your season number will be slotted at the end of the line.

Draft picks can be traded at any point during the season, off-season, and during the draft. Trade must be posted in the league thread on this forum and both teams confirming it. If you make a trade involving picks and after the season a team leaves, the traded picks are still in effect.

K. After the Fantasy Championship matchup has ended, the in-season trade deadline period will be lifted. Trading can again commence. Managers must post in the Fantasy Baseball thread any trade and both managers involved in the trade must confirm the trade is true before it is validiated.

L. During the draft, a manager has 12 hours to complete a draft pick. The time starts immediately following the previous selection. If a manager selects an already drafted player, the clock immediately starts for the next manager. They are allowed to skip the team making the invalid pick. This is not considered a delay for the manager making the invalid pick, they can just make a correct pick when they next get on. After a team's 2nd time limit delay their time is dropped to 8 hours. After their 3rd delay, their time is dropped to 6 hours the remainder of the draft.

M. If you draft a player without stats for the prior regular season during the draft that is a Rookie BEFORE the Yahoo! player pool is posted, and he is not in the player pool by the END of the draft, you lose that player as a draft pick and any rights to that player AND will be forced to select someone from the remaining undrafted players ONCE the draft is completed. This is a pretty uncommon situation anymore, but could still happen.

N. New managers inherit all facets of their team when taking over a team, players, draft pick slot, draft pick trades.

O. Team Abandonment.
If a team is left abandoned or neglected during the season. The manager is subject to be replaced. Poor performance is not considered neglect. Leaving an injured player in a starting lineup in a league that has daily roster moves for 3 or more weeks is. If your team falls in to general starting lineup neglect, expect to get a message suggesting to make some roster moves. If no moves are made within a week, don't be shocked if you get replaced as the team's manager. This rule is designed to prevent the teams that are left for dead mid-season and their manager never returning.

P. League Year.
The new league year begins immediately following the keeper due date deadline. For this season, the new league year begins on January 16th, 2021.

Q. These rules are subject to review and revision after the season is over and prior to the start of drafting at the discretion of the league and the commissioner.

Don't really care if it's QS or W as both are effected by the fact that pitchers rarely are expected to go 6+ innings anymore.

And back obviously.

I bet you are all glad your farm team is back for yet another season! Soon you'll be able to get great youngster and good players for rock bottom prices.

I have no illusions that my team and I are anything other than that.

We have 3 teams available to be taken over. I have them listed below. I'll give anyone interested here on the board about a week or so to claim any of the open teams before I seek out outside replacements.

Keepers are all set for everyone. I just need DCBild to hack 2 more off his list that he sent me. If I dont hear from him by the 1st of Feb I'll just hack 2 off myself.

This intro post to the season will be a little long.

IMPORTANT DATES
Keeper Deadline: January 15th
New League Year Begins: January 16th
2020 League Draft Date: March 1st
Time Limit Per Pick: 12 hours
MLB Opening Day 2021: April 1st?

2020 Thread

The 2021 season is basically a continuation of the short 2020 season.

We have some open teams, so I want to get this going a little early this year. I still need keepers from a quarter of the teams. I'm going to set a hard deadline of January 15th to turn in keepers. After that date, I will just declare keepers for your team. We are keeping 16 this year since last season was a truncated season due to the pandemic. After this 2021 season the plan is to go back to keeping the usual 8 keepers. This could change though, we'll see.

Since we are keeping so many, our draft will be much shorter. The benefit will be we shouldn't have to start drafting so early like we usually do. Which I'm very happy about. Usually we start mid February, this year I'm thinking March 1st. We'll have to see when pitchers and catchers report, but if MLB sticks with their usual schedule this should give us a month to get the draft done.

Format. We're back to our standard Head 2 Head scoring format this season. With the truncated 2020 season, we did Roto scoring last year. Back to the usual H2H this season.
Runs, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
QS, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP
Minimum Innings Requirement: 32.0

The only question is, Did we like Quality Starts instead of Wins last season for a pitching category? I personally did. It takes the randomness of a team's offense out of the pitcher's individual success.

Draft Order. We're going to do 5 rounds this year. As stated last year, the order this season will be set based on the regular season finishes from last season. In order to prohibit tanking last year, we determined best record gets the first pick, second best gets the second pick, and so on. We are also using a non-snaking order for this year. The official draft order is listed below.

You'll notice I have an injury exemption/opt out round listed after round 2. This will be for any team that suffers a season ending injury or player opt out after the keeper deadline has passes. The team can throw out that keeper and replace it with this replacement draft pick. If the injury exemption/opt out happens prior to the draft, a keeper substitution could also be an option instead of the replacement draft pick option.

Compensatory round. This round is going to be for managers taking over open/available teams. It's happening after Round One.

We usually have the benchwarmer waivers to fill up the remaining roster spots. This year since the draft is half the rounds of the usual 10 rounds, this won't be such a big deal.

One team left, Team A. It's definitely a rebuild type team. So not a lot of pressure to be competitive this year with it. It's more of a get your team setup for 2022.

I still haven't had @Tman12 get registered in the yahoo league. I sent him another email and invite. If he isn't in by Feb 22nd then I'm going to make his team available.

So far we're still on track for the March 1st start to the draft. If we don't have yahoo filled and ready to go by then, I may have to push the start of the draft back a week. We'll worry about that when the time comes.

The league is officially filled and ready to go for 2021!

New managers this year are BRC & Baby Shoes.
909 is making his return to the league after a year off.
Minger80 is back this year as well, just running a different team.
Tman12 was going to be a new manager this year but he's been off the grid and hasn't responded to any yahoo league invites. If he wants in next year, maybe there will be a team open then.

The yahoo player pool is updated to reflect the available players. As expected, it's rough. There still are some good players to be had though.

Draft will start Monday March 1st. 2020 Pandemic Champ Steak will kick things off.

EDIT: I bumped NA spots down to 3 from 4 last year. I was going to bump IL back down to 3, but because of covid I'll leave it at 4 again.

Anyone wanting to pick early, feel free. The 12 hour time limit per pick starts on Monday for the draft.

The official start of the five round draft begins Monday, March 1st. Everyone will have a 12 hour time limit to make their selection. The yahoo player pool is updated to reflect the available players. If a player is drafted that has already been kept or drafted, the next manager in line is automatically on the clock. The manager making the invalid draft pick will have to make a valid pick at their own convenience.

Usually the first pick on the first day of the draft gets 24 hrs. We're over that, so OG is officially on the clock. 12 hour time limits are in effect.
