Two Openings - 12 Team Keeper League

Recommended Posts

We’ve got two openings in our 12 Team, H2H Cats League on ESPN. We have a 10-man minor league system that we keep track of through Google Sheets, and that is also where we keep track of our offline drafts. Our scoring is the 10 generic categories. We’ve talked about moving to/adding OPS, Holds or SVHD, and QS for next year. We aren’t against change for the betterment of the league. 
We’ve been a Dynasty League for the last 5 or so years, but have decided to switch to a keeper league for this season to try and even out some of the rosters. Each team will be required to keep 15 players (not counting the minor league rosters). Our plan is to switch back to a Dynasty League the following season. 
One team is set-up to compete right now, while the other is a definite rebuild. That said, the rebuilding team has a very, very solid group of prospects and some real trade chips for this season.
Team 1:
C - JT Realmuto, 1B - Matt Carpenter, 2B - Assdribbles Cabrera, 3B - Anthony Rendon, SS - Xander Bogaerts, MI - Rougned Odor, CI - Josh Donaldson, OF(5) - Andrew Benintendi, Starling Marte, Nomar Mazara, Wil Myers, Marvin Gonzalez, DH - Shohei Ohtani, UTIL - Garrett Hampson. Bench - Marcel Ozuna, Gregory Polanco.
SP - Max Scherzer, Jose Berrios, Stephen Strasburg, Madison Bumgarner, Chris Paddack, Jack Flaherty, Eduardo Rodriguez, Michael Wacha, Kyle Gibson, Corey Kluber*, Lance McCullers*
RP - Will Smith, Shane Greene, Matt Barnes, Cody Allen. 
Minors: Dylan Cease, Logan Allen, Brusdar Graterol, Kyle Wright, Michael Baez, Andres Gimenez, Sean Murphy, JP Martinez, Cole Winn.
Team 2: 
C - Fran Mejia, 1B - Eric Thames, 2B - Ketel Marte, 3B - Jeimer Candelario, SS - Andrelton Simmons, MI - Cesar Hernandez, CI - Bobby Bradley, OF(5) - Domingo Santana, Ramon Laureano, Mallex Smith, Adam Eaton, Teoscar Hernandez, DH - Rowdy Tellez, UTIL - Danny Jansen. Bench - Jonathan India, Heliot Ramos, Brent Rooker, Jarred Kelenic, Kevin Maitan, Wander Javier, Corey Ray, Yoenis Cespedes*
SP - Lucas Giolito, Marco Gonzales, Andrew Heaney, Cal Quantrill
RP - Ken Giles, John Gant, Josh James, Jose LeClerc, Derek Rodriguez
Minors - Andrew Vaughn, Bobby Witt, Corbin Carroll, Xavier Edwards, Bubba Thompson, Jeter Downs, John Torres, Oneil Cruz, Matt Busch
We use GroupMe for a league wide group chat. We find this works best for communication, trade negotiations, etc. as opposed to trying to use the ESPN email system or message board. There's general conversations that happen, most of it not being very constructive. It's a requirement to be in the GroupMe chat.
Lastly, we have one rule at the moment in regards to prospects. Our goal was to make sure the annual prospect draft held meaning, so prospects aren't added as freely throughout the year. The only time that an unowned prospect can be added is once they're called up to the big leagues. Also, if that prospect happens to be on a teams top 10 list on MLB dot com (roughly the top 300), they go through a 24 hour waiver system so it isn't on a first come, first serve basis.
Feel free to drop me a PM if you have any further questions. Thanks.

Is this a free league?

Yes it is.

Team 1 is now taken. Looking for a prospect savvy owner for Team 2.
