Deadline for every team to email or post their keepers was set as Mar 20. The draft is Thursday, April 1 (ha, April Fools Day...Barrys Dopers is getting Bullington and Bixler as his keepers in honor of the occasion!). That gives everyone more than a week to plot strategy.


Stupid question: The five new 'expansion' teams, including me, don't have to submit keepers since we only have 10 players, right?

I want to make sure I'm not stalling anything here.

Well, shit, I guess I should have checked out the starters before drafting.

I am going to wind up with dog poop for the MI spots, with 21 such players subject to keeper status, and another 10 having been picked up in the dispersal. I wondered why the hell teams had 2 SS's.

This kind of sucks, in that the 7 returning teams have 25 players they can have under control, while the new guys have just 10. Makes trading a bitch for us, until the open draft takes place. Also means that we cannot figure out what players are going to be available until later.

Crap. If I knew this, I would have drafted differently. MI is so much more a premium position when a team needs to play 3.


Which is why I'm glad I avoided P's in the disperal draft and then took Longoria-Morneau and Phillips. Sure I'm short SS and MI + bench depth, but I'm halfway home with what I got.

Then consider that maybe only 6-8 of the players I have currently will be 'keepers' if I'm allowed to stay in the league next year and everything's gravy. I'm ready for this marathon.

As per dates, etc. Whatever is fine with me. I'll be ready to analyze and draft on time whenever the date becomes official.

So put me down as on the side of whatever helps out the rest of the league in this case.

Just the returning teams. Those 10 are your keepers.

But if a player is not on either the limited, 10-player roster for the 5 new guys, and not among the 25 on the rosters for the other 7 players, can we select him as a free agent, and replace one of the guys on our list of 10 with the new player?

No. All free agents are in the draft pool. All players not selected in the dispersal draft are in the draft pool. All players not kept by the original teams are in the draft pool. There is no free agency until after the draft.
