    My keeper league I’m in has 10, also the money league I was in had 10. I’d say 10-12 would be ideal. Any more or less and then the FA market is going to be screwy. Plus there’s always a big time injury to a top player that kills a team, with a large league that team is all but done when the injury bug hits.

    Plus draft day takes FOREVER in a 14-16 team baseball league. 25 roster spots, so roughly 15minutes/team (36s/pick). At 14 teams, that’s like 3.5hrs of draft.

    I lobby for 45s in our keeper, it’s freaking hectic because we do it in person on our computers and do it before like a Saturday party. But 1min would prolly be good for this.

    Pretty sure I posted my draft strategy not too far back. So you guys are set to just mess me up when it comes to picking my guys before me.

    I got a couple weeks to minimize making a draft-ass of myself. Heh... should be good times.

    I can't commit to another league but can you use this thread to share the league settings, draft results, standings updates etc when it gets going? It would be interesting to follow along. Cheers.

    I'll be offline on Yahoo Mon-Fri day time. Yahoo fantasy sites are blocked from the computer I access during those times. I'll take a look after 8pm tonight PST.

    Since Yahoo got rid of their polling system we're gonna have to do this the old fashion way. How about we just discuss some and for the polls say majority rules? These are just minor details anyway....but is everyone cool with the following things? Any suggestions?

    1. 4 Acquisitions per week, Unlimited for year?


    2. Waivers when dropping guys?


    3. Min Innings Pitched (set to 28 but what is common?)


    4. Playoffs end a week early


    5. 3 or 4 OF spots?


    6. 1 or 2 Util spots?


    7. 5, 6 or 7 person bench


    8. BB Included as a category?


    9. SV and Holds or SV+HLD as categories?

    1. 4 Acquisitions per week, Unlimited for year? 2 per week, limit streaming.


    2. Waivers when dropping guys? 2 days


    3. Min Innings Pitched (set to 28 but what is common?) sounds about right


    4. Playoffs end a week early do you mean prior to end of season?


    5. 3 or 4 OF spots? 4


    6. 1 or 2 Util spots? 2


    7. 5, 6 or 7 person bench - 5


    8. BB Included as a category? the more cats the better- for hitters or pitchers? my preference - hitters.


    9. SV and Holds or SV+HLD as categories?
    SV+HLD

    IP should be 36. 24 is very easy to hit without trying. 24IP is like 3goalie starts, 36IP is like 4 goalie starts

    I replied on yahoo, but had similar thoughts to some of those portrayed. I'm not too picky about it and I'm happy to develop a strategy around whatever settings we come up with.

    1. 4 Acquisitions per week, Unlimited for year? Works for me


    2. Waivers when dropping guys? Yahoo Standard is fine


    3. Min Innings Pitched (set to 28 but what is common?) Should be fine


    4. Playoffs end a week early Good way to go


    5. 3 or 4 OF spots? 4 works


    6. 1 or 2 Util spots? 1 is good with 4 OF to prevent position hoarding, as previously mentioned


    7. 5, 6 or 7 person bench Depends how big the league is. If we fill it, 5 bench, if we're light, 7 bench, in the middle, 6.


    8. BB Included as a category? I'd vote no


    9. SV and Holds or SV+HLD as categories?
    I would just go saves, but am fine if we do both

    Just found this thread. I'd imagine this is where the slow draft will take place? Excited to get this thing going. When will the draft order be set?
