How do we indicate keepers and what are the rules for them?

ESPN site is blocked for me at work, so I can't check right now for exact links. However, you log onto the league page. Go to your team. There should be a link along the top saying 'Keepers' or 'Select Keepers'. It should bring you to a page with the players on your team with a series of check boxes. Check the boxes next to the players you want to keep on your roster for the coming season. You can select up to 7 players.

The players you select will remain on your roster for the start of the season. On Draft Day, you will not draft until as many rounds as you have keepers. So, if you select 7 keepers, you won't select your first draft until the 8th round. I wouldn't worry too much about that, though, as most people here select at least 4 keepers. I typically select all 7.

Here are some offers I will throw out there.

Justin Upton for an 8th round pick
Ian Kinsler for an 8th round pick
Adrian Beltre for 8th round pick
CJ Wilson for an 11th round pick

Note that all of these players are available in a trade for keepers too.

Darwin, you will need to check with JohnnyO but we did have a non-participating player last year who's team may need to be taken over.

PM me with who you may be referring to. I don't know if we have any leaderless teams this year. Typically we don't determine this until later in February.

If we do have an opening, Darwin, I'll be in touch.

Hi John - could you please add my name to the waiting list? In the meantime I'll try and figure out what I wanna name my team.

Hi, everyone else - I'm a newcomer to the site, John directed me here when I expressed interest in the league. I've never done fantasy sports, though I have seen the documentary 'Silly Little Game' about how Dan Okrent invented Rotisserie League. I grew up an Astros fan when they were still in the Dome, and then I emigrated to Red Sox Nation on July 19th of last year.

Anyway, I hope this works out. Thanks.

Hey Everyone. Now that we've passed the Super Bowl, it's only a week until Pitchers and Catchers report to Spring Training.

It's time for baseball!!! For me, this is the most exciting time of the year. So much potential (yes, even for a Mets fan).

I'll be starting up a new thread in the coming weeks for our new season. The ESPN FBB league site is currently down for maintenance (has been for the last week or so). Once it's back up, I'll be emailing all managers to see if we have any dropouts/teams to fill.

In the meantime, I've set up a Doodle poll to get an idea on when to have our draft. I set up two potential dates/times. Here is the link:
http://www.doodle.com/gb7ysp4x73hd86hg
Can you please go there and vote on a date/time for the draft? If the specific time doesn't work, we can move that around.

Also, any thoughts on changes to the league this year? Scoring changes? League rules?
One thing I'd like to propose is cutting al waiver claims at the end of the season. I think it's more exciting to have these players available at the draft, rather than have players pick them up in the offseason and add them to their keepers pool. Thoughts?

I wasn't able to keep up with the managing last year as I had in year's past. I think this year will be better as I have a pretty decent grip on the "balancing parenting with life" thing.

In any event, I'm excited for a new season to unfold.
