This league is a dynasty league, meaning the league will continue from year to year with each person keeping the same roster they had the year before. There will be a major league roster and a minor league roster. The major league roster is the roster that will appear on the league page. These are the players that you will play with on a week to week basis. Each team will also have a minor league roster with a maximum on 15 players on this roster. The requirements to be on the minor league roster are as follows: A player must not have exceeded 75 at-bats or 50 innings pitched. If a player who was on your minor league roster to begin the season exceeds these limits during the season, the manager must either move the player to the major league roster or drop the player in the free agent pool. Also, a player who has not exceeded 50 IP or 75 AB's may be moved to the major league roster, though once a player is put on the major league roster he may not be moved back to the minor league roster.
Before the Live Draft, I would like to conduct the minor league Draft. For the minor league draft, only those players who have not exceeded the stated limits are eligible. This draft will be conducted by having all league members e-mail me their list of desired players for their minor league roster. Remember, there is a max of 15 players on this roster, but if you want the max 15 players, I would suggest making a longer list, since it is extremely unlikely you will get all the minor league players you covet. I will go from team to team taking the highest available player on each of the lists. You do not need to have the max 15 player, you may have less.
During the season, I will alert you when players are no longer eligible for the minor league roster. I will then need you to tell me what action you will take. If you promote the player to the major league roster, you must drop a major league player to make room. You may also add/drop players to you minor league roster during the season, so long as you do not exceed 15 players on that roster. But remember to alert me, so I can make the change on your roster list. For your major league roster, you may add/remove major league players freely. Please post changes on the message board an e-mail the change to me as well.
Sounds good, just why don't you have normal keeper league rules, you have to have drafts every year with unprotected guys, and new minor leaguers etc.
I just really like the though of going year to year with the same team. I've been doing a dynasty league for football (without minor leaguers of course) and it has worked great. You can really see the benefit of drafting young a few years down the the road.
