There's one opening in my competitive league. No part-timers though, we're all active fantasy baseballers!

League Details: ESPN, 12-Team, Roto, 6x6 (R/HR/RBI/SB/OPS/K x K/QS/S/ERA/WHIP/K:BB

Keeper Rules:

1. Each team may keep up to three (3) players from its previous year's end of season roster, but is not required to keep any players.

2. Keepers are subject to a term limit; no player may be kept for more than three (3) consecutive seasons.

3. A keeper's price at auction will be determined by their base value (price when they were last bought at auction) plus a keeper tax ($3 for the first year, $7 for the second year, $12 for the third year). If a player went undrafted, their base value will be set at $1.

4. The three (3) players each team paid the most money for at draft will be "unkeepable" for the following season.

5. All keeper caveats (i.e. term limit, base value, unkeepable status) carry over in a trade.

The point is to make all of the big names available at auction every year (e.g. Miggy, Verlander, McCutchen). Even if someone catches lightning in a bottle (like I did with Trout), they can only ride that gravy train for 3 years before the player goes back into the pool.

The other big thing is that you're under no obligation to keep ANY players if you don't want to. You'll start the auction draft with a full wallet ($260) instead of having your keepers' prices deducted. This system has worked very well so far.

Send a PM if you're interested. Thanks!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

why do you have K, WHIP and K/BB? K/BB seems redundant with the first two.

Not criticizing at all, just asking.

Jack was in the league, but he left near the beginning of the season. Got a bunch of Razzballers in there, though.

I like to change things up every season just for fun. That category was K:9 last season and people wanted to try K:BB. Yeah, it's somewhat redundant, but there's redundancy in HR/RBI/R/OPS (or AVG). K:BB helps keep in check high K SP who can't keep their BB under control, same way K for batters keeps in check guys who either hit bombs or strike out.
