I had no idea where to post this but figured this thread to be the best option. Now that we have the drafts over with, I'd like to get a handle on a few issues that may or may not have been dealt with already (I was too lazy to search multiple listings):

1 - How long can we keep "keepers"? I believe that you had mentioned two years? Is that official?

2 - How are guys kept on my roster BUT not on a major league 25 man roster handled under the keeper rules? For example I'm carrying Cutch and Price with the hope that they'll eventually get called up. Assuming a two year clock, does it start now? I hope not. I enjoy the prospect mining aspect of fantasy sports and believe losing a year of eligibility on guys like Price would ruin this as I'd be much less inclined to carry a prospect if I'm effectively only getting a year of service. Perhaps we pick a date and say that if that person is not on the 25 man roster by then, their clock won't start this season?

3 - Is there a place on the Yahoo league site where we can put all these rules in writing so that we have documentation in one easy to find spot?

That's it for now. Thanks!

I'll take the easy road and say that I don't make the rules, I just enforce them. Its whatever people want. Perhaps now would be a good time to have that discussion now that we have drafted, and I think I can put them down in a commissioner's note on the league page that should be at least semi-permanent.

As for our previous discussions, I believe what was discussed was to have (or not to have) a 2 year keeper limit, such that you could keep them for 2 OFFSEASONS, in effect having the player for 3 seasons. So, if Cutch doesn't come up until halfway through the year, you still get him for 2 more years after this. But you are right that if you like to go out and mine prospects, you want to have them for a while. We could abolish the keeper limit, we could extend it, we could set a date for clocks to start as you suggest, we could have a "franchise" tag like someone suggested before that would allow us to keep one prospect for longer, etc etc. I'm open to doing it however the majority decides. My 2 cents is that we should have some kind of limit, because how fun is it if one guy gets to keep Hanley, Reyes, Wright, etc infinitely? Plus, it definitely encourages trading of big names.

My vote: Endless contracts, or the ability to tag "franchise" players.
