View Full Version : NL Dynasty League Year 3: Three teams available to adopt.

03-07-2010, 11:00 AM
Hello everyone. I am the commissioner for a NL only dynasty league that is in it's third season on Yahoo. This is a 5x5 standard league.

We have ten slots, of which seven (so far) have re-upped from last year. Three teams are available to be adopted.

I am going to post the final rosters of these three available teams from last year, and if you are interested in adopting one of them, PM me. I will then PM you back with sign up info.

We plan to draft new NL players soon, and of course you can drop any players on your roster that are now in the AL. We will do this year's draft in the reverse order of finish from last year. Only players that are new to the NL or were not on someone's roster at the end of last year will be available in the Yahoo player pool to be drafted.

Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, 3 OF, 2UT, 2SP, 2RP, 4P, 8BN, 2DL.

It is a dynasty league, so you keep everyone on your roster. You can release anyone you want, or who switches to the AL or is released by their team. Also, anyone who had someone who went to the AL over the off-season loses that player.

We are waiting to get managers for the last 3 teams, then we will start a slow off line draft. I think we will do 8 hours per pick, and post the picks on the Yahoo league message board. There won't be too many rounds, since everyone will start with 20+ players already. Finally, we will vote on any rule changes that anyone wants to suggest after the ten manager slots are full. One that I plan to put up for a vote is how trades get vetoed: league vote or commissioner decision.

team 2 is beasty

One thing to note: I posted the final 2009 rosters, so if a player is in the AL now, they are gone....I just went back and italicized those who have left the NL. Let me know if I missed any.

03-09-2010, 01:04 PM
I think you got them all.

Come on guys we need players. This is a quality league with a lot of movement. Plus there are a couple of beasty teams up for grabs!

Tonight I published our league with Yahoo. Very hard to describe everything in only 65 characters, here was my description:

"NL dynasty lg. year 3.Teams to adopt. E-mail for details. Exp Req"

I left it restricted rather than open. When I get inquiries, I will ask for experience, and e-mail the link to this thread.

I would still love to get a couple more RedsZoners to sign up....

03-11-2010, 02:46 AM
I'd like to have a couple RedsZoners in the NL/AL Only leagues too but it's up to them. Personally I think it's more of a challenge than leagues that have every major league player available. Maybe that's just me. But I bet we can find enough good owners through yahoo if we can't find them here.

03-11-2010, 07:41 AM
I had one of my coworkers but he is going to australia for a month this tuesday. I can't blame him for not wanting to run a slow draft on probably the best vacation of his life ;)

Team #3 has been taken by Greg Jones.

As of the moment, teams #1 and #2 are still available.

03-11-2010, 02:46 PM
Team #2 has been taken by Carlos Julio.

As of the moment, team #1 is still available.

Thanks everyone!

The league is now full thanks to some fast manager recruiting. I will be adding last year's rosters today and tomorrow. You can drop players once your roster is up, but you can't add anyone until we start the draft.

I will post the draft order by tomorrow, and I would propose that we start a slow draft, with up to 8 hours to pick, on Monday 3/15 at noon eastern.

If there are any proposals for rule changes, please post them here or on the league board. I will start with this one: who should have the power to veto trades, a majority of the league, or the commissioner?

See my message on the AL thread about time to pick.

Draft order: Inverse of last year’s standings:

1. M$b
2. Dusty’s Meatgrinder
3. Wii Not Fit
4. Terribles
5. Efrat Invaders
6. Cool Guy
7. New York Knights
8. NJ Red Machine
9. Montana Reds
10. Dublin Clovers

We can start drafting at noon Monday (3/15/10) eastern time, by picking players from the available player list. After you have chosen, you must also post a note listing the round number, your draft pick number, and the player chosen. For example: Round 1, pick 1, Alex Rodriguez. Each manager will have 8 hours to pick. If you will be busy during your pick, you may tell another manager or myself who you will take when your turn to pick comes. If you miss your pick, the next manager in turn must go forward, but you may still take your turn as soon as you come back on.

In the past, we have found it very helpful to send an e-mail note after you pick to the next manager in order, to remind him that it is now his turn.

The rosters are now loaded, look on Sunday or later to see them.

The waiver wire priority will be the same, although that won’t come into play until later.

Several managers lost a lot of players to the AL. We had a suggestion to do compensatory picks after the first round. Without trying to classify players lost into type A, B, or C, here is how many players each team lost over the off-season:

1. M$b- 3
2. Dusty’s Meatgrinder- 1
3. Wii Not Fit- 2
4. Terribles- 3
5. Efrat Invaders- 0
6. Cool Guy- 6
7. New York Knights- 3
8. NJ Red Machine- 2
9. Montana Reds- 0
10. Dublin Clovers- 4

I propose that every player who lost 3 or more players get 2 compensatory picks after the first round (chosen in draft order), then we resume the regular draft, starting at the top again. (Straight draft format, not snake draft). We will only do this if at least five other managers vote ‘yes’. Post your vote...

Also, who should have the power to veto trades, commissioner or majority of managers? Post your vote...

Both Efrat and Montana Reds have too many players, due to having people on the DL at the end of the year, and not losing anyone to the AL. Efrat will have to drop at least 2, and Montana Reds at least one. Once that is accomplished, I will trim the roster size back down by two.

You will not be able to place players on the DL (where you will have two slots) until Yahoo starts listing players as injured. So if you have an injured guy, you can either carry them in a bench roster slot for now, or drop them.

Any questions or comments? Let me know.

So....no on the 12 hours to pick? Again, if I am at work and the person before me picks, I will have no way of knowing until I get home.

I vote no on compensatory picks. Owners could get a very good prospect or decent everyday player at the end of the first round because a fringe player signed with a team in the other league. Just add rounds to the draft until every team is full.

I vote for majority of managers in trade veto voting.

Remember, the draft often moves pretty slowly. It looks like you pick 7th, and I pick 9th. If your turn is approaching and you have work, just send me (or anyone else) 2 or 3 players you are interested in, in your order of preference, before you go to work, and we would place your pick for you.

My concern is that when we have done 12 hour picks in the past, the whole pace of the draft slows way down. I know we have 2 weeks + till the season starts, but that could be a problem, given that we are just starting on March 15th.

03-13-2010, 08:42 PM
I vote no on compensatory picks, owner majority for trade veto.

03-13-2010, 08:56 PM
Fwiw, I'd prefer ONE comp pick for teams that have lost 3 or more players more.

03-13-2010, 11:11 PM
I vote yes for compensation. I lost 6 players! My team was already shabby before losing anyone

1 pick after the 1st round for the first 3 players you lose. Another pick after the 2nd round for the next 3 players you lose... :D Seriously my team is bad. And its twice as good as the trash I started with last year from whoever gave up on this team. The compensation picks would be huge for me
