I'm in for this year. I'd prefer to start over (and make this a non-keeper league), but if others/majority want it to stay as a keeper, that's fine.

How many keepers is it again? I selected mine a week or so ago, but couldn't remember the number. I didn't get an error on however many I selected if I was over the limit.

its six
and the only reason i want to have a keepers league is for the first time in about 5 years i have 6 i want to keep

id take a reduction (4) but zero would kill me as i have limited time to research but i will go with the rest of the group

Everyone go ahead and designate six keepers. We can set the draft for the next two weeks, whatever works for everyone.

I'll play only if we either eliminate the dead teams or find someone to take over. It's a long season to have a two teams that mailed it in and give a free pass every week angry.gif

I'm more in favor of starting over to be honest.

Agree with this. I'm not sure we'll find any others interested on here. unsure.gif Can we stick with the keepers if we shrink to a 10 team league? thinking.gif

If not, then I'd rather start again to make sure we don't have any free win weeks. thumbsup.gif

its a good question - reducing to 10 may help and is probably preferable - unsure re keepers but maybe the way around that is that when we draft everyones keepers are picked in the first 6 rounds...then normal draft resumes. Hope that makes sense ?

The only issue might be people want to pick the eyes out of the 11 and 12th team that are being discarded.

We could easily drop 2 teams. Who are the two dead ones...Jaz and whom?

That'll make it better for the bottom teams to build a base, too, kind of a rebirth.

While your at it can you take away SLG, OBP, 3B, CG,HLD and QS. I find its all bit too much. I would enjoy a simpler version more, personally whistling.gif

I personally feel like those categories help add value to players that wouldn't have it. Especially in pitching with holds. I really like the triples & complete game categories, too, because it's a tiebreaker of sorts. But with 10 teams, it might be time to reduce the categories because the player pool is much deeper now.

I enjoy the extra cats, makes you think outside the box a fair bit. agree.gif If we had to shrink, my least fave is CG - simply because there are so few (relative to the other categories - 2CGs got you 3rd in that cat last season). If we had to even things out I'd probably agree (with heavy heart) with Juice on SLG - this cat probably most mimics another cat (HR). Whilst other batter cats are linked somewhat they do have a certain separate element to them (e.g 3b and SB can be linked by speed but 3B also can be achieved by less speedy players -Gattis a couple of seasons ago, Castellanos last).

I'll choose my keepers once this is confirmed, there's a chance this impacts who I pick. smile.gif

OK, then I think this means we should cut triples & complete games. Slugging actually is mainly since we don't count doubles (and now probably triples). So, slugging needs to stay, in my opinion, if we eliminate another extra base hit category.

Doubles hitters are what saves your slugging percentage on a weekly basis.
