It took a lot of work, and I consulted with several people here (including the commissioners) but attached here is a copy of what I hope will become our League Constitution. It incorporates all our rules and procedures, and I hope I didn't leave anything out.
If you can think of anything that I got wrong, or left out, please post it in this thread.
I'd like to pass this now, rather than during the off-season, so hopefully all the owners will get a chance to look at it.
This is the formula for the schedule for a 20 team, 4 division league in which each team plays division opponents twice and all other teams once.
First, teams need to be grouped by division and numbered, 1 through 5 in each division and 1 through 20 for the entire league. Other than that it's not essential that you put them in any particular order, but listing them by the order of last year's finish helps assure that teams won't end up playing each other in the same weeks each year....
With the draft coming up fast because of the Aussie games, I need to make the keeper deadline this Sunday, (3/9) at 11:59pm.
I will try to post everyone's keepers in this thread to make it easier. Please keep discussions to the other thread, I will move keepers over here (or post them yourself). Anyone who doesn't post keepers *somewhere* won't get any.
Keepers in this thread:
Guys with Wood - YES
Romanian Yankees - YES
Bambinos - YES
Larrupin' Lou's - YES
I think this is a new one - I took the 2013 draft results from CBS and ranked according to the following:
- % of draft picks for each team that beat the average score for a player drafted in that round
- % of keeper picks for each team that beat the average score for a player drafted in that round
- % of non-keeper picks for each team that beat the average score for a non-keeper player drafted in that round
Doesn't that sound like fun?
Team W/L Beat av. Keeper beat...
So Here we go... let's do business.
I'm looking for a SP. (shocking!)
I'll field offers for anyone. Players I am putting ont he block officially though:
Lucroy, Ike Davis, Morales, Marte, Ethier...
I'm tossing guys out there I can back up with other players. But again I will trade anyone. Cano, Trumbo and Zobrist will be tough to pry from me though. :) Unless of course I can get a suitable/serviceable replacement.
Well; I'm pretty much ready with my list:
Chris Sale - 3rd
Jose Quintana - 20th
Brandon Crawford - 18th
Jon Lester - 2nd
Russell Martin - 13th
Brian Wilson - 19th
I'm sure there's a good reason for it, but just curious.
Is that JDPNYY's offspring?
We will probably have at least one open spot in the league this year. Please sign up here if you are interested.
Include at least two references, plus a copy of your credit report, last year's tax return (federal) and an essay in 500-750 words as to why you want to be a member of the league.
It's never to early to figure this out...
The season opens Saturday, March 22nd this year with two games in Australia.
That week looks like this:
Sunday, March 16th
Monday, March 17th - St Patrick's Day
Tuesday, March 18th
Wednesday, March 19th - ERIC UNAVAILABLE
Well, we're getting into that time of year, and with the season starting early this year we need to move things up.
SO...if you were an owner last year...are you back in 2014?
Guys with Wood - Yes (PAID)
Romanian Yankees - Yes (PAID)
Bambinos - Yes (PAID)
Larrupin' Lou's - Yes (PAID)
Miko's Marauders - Yes
SP - AJ Griffin (OAK)
SP - Ivan Nova (NYY)
SP - Stephen Strasberg (WAS)
Here we go: who was lucky last year, and who was unlucky? The answers may or may not surprise you:
Name W L W/Lrank PointsRank 'Luck'
TeamExtGents 16 6 2nd 14th 12
Bambinos 13 9 7th 9.5th 2.5
