Welcome to the 2016 Unofficial Pittsburgh Pirates Message Board Fantasy Baseball Season thread. Here is what I am proposing (also noted in my e-mail to each manager):

  • We designate keepers on March 20, 2016
  • We hold the draft on Monday, March 28, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. EST. I thought about doing the draft on Sunday, earlier in the day, to help Dutch, but Chris pointed out that Sunday, March 27 is Easter.
  • We have the same roster spots - C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, MI, CI, OF, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, Bn, Bn, with 3 DL spots. That is 25 roster spots, the same as major league teams.
  • The league is roto ... I am 100% willing to listen to making the league H2H, however. What say you?
  • I will keep the 50 roster move limit.
  • We can still trade draft picks.
  • Trades are presumed valid, but we as league members retain the right to say "no" if a trade just makes no sense. (I still think Willingham is a keeper ... )
  • Dutch is not allowed to have all the nice 3rd basemen. Donaldson, Machado, Bryant AND Frazier???
  • Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, for the love of God - no auto-drafting. Seriously, picking your own team is kind of important.

How do the dates look?

I am all fine with it Bucfan..

I also want to announce 2 trades made between Studs on Steroids and Buccoblast 21

Trade A Dee Gordon & 15th rounder pick (studs) for 9th rounder pick (Buccoblast)

Trade B Giancarlo Stanton & 19th rounder pick (studs) for 7th rounder pick (buccoblast)


*** edited 20th rounder for 19th rounder as studs has no 20th rounder left in this years draft

  • We designate keepers - Awesome, Another 7 days of wondering why nobody trades for Frazier, Archer or Kluber??
  • We hold the draft on - Completely get the Dutchman out of his sleep - 02.00 in the night but Kewl by me
  • We have the same roster spots - Will Be hard to keep Pedro Florimon on the roster then....
  • The league is roto ... - I like Roto over h2h mostly, but if any of u play more leagues and need a new manager, sign me up..
  • I will keep the 50 - Still think thats a good extra to the league, but hope all players are aware
  • We can still trade draft picks. - Did i post it right with the trades of Buccoblast & me.. and come on.. Frazier, Anybody?
  • Trades are presumed valid - Would be odd to boycott my own trades huh?
  • Dutch is not allowed - The Dutch are always allowed anything, if it's smart is another thing.. Frazier Anybody?
  • please, please, please - I like the thought of monitoring actives and unactives to decide a BOOT up tha Hiney if needed
