Hamels is a top-tier SP, Dutch. Most mocks have him going between 24 and 30.

And you're right - he is money in one particular category ...

And if I finish 4th, I will have seriously botched the draft.

I didn't plan on returning, but if yous guys are hard up for managers to fill up spots I suppose I could make a return...

I can't guarantee I'll be the most 'active' owner, but I'm a 'warm body'.

Just a quick note (hopefully I'll have more online time next week)-

The league is created, and I did change the setting to go to same-day eligibility for new players, since there seemed to be consensus there.

All other rules are set to remain the same. I set it so that keepers need to be selected (10 per team) by mid-March with the draft at the end of the month. In the meantime, we are open for trading, which includes draft picks. For the record, I was not keeping track of the keepers (years eligible, that is), I thought someone else was taking that on. We'll need a decision on what to do here.

And NSMaster, please do feel free to join. I think we have 9 of 12 already signed up- not sure who else we are waiting on...

Saw that the league is up and running, per Yahoo. Thanks, BBF.

Good news for you is that the system is DESIGNED for the managers to mark off keepers themselves. You won't have to take care of that task. Just go onto the team roster index, and you will see the "keepers" option. Click that choice and the roster will take you to the full roster at the end of the 2011 season, with boxes to check off your keepers.

That is fairly easy, so I can do it.

I can simply go to the league's history, and check the rosters at the end of the 2011. Any player on your team as of that date has completed "Year 1."

Will then check to see what players remained keepers through the 2014 season, meaning that 2015 will be the 5th and final season.

Can then give preseason warnings, "Hey, last year for this guy" before the 2015 season.

How does that sound?

SEcond year and still confused. When I bring up my team from last year, I get an error messege and the league is not ours??? I did find our league and see the option for choosing keepers but no other information -- no history of last season?

How do I find the past records? and do I need to check anything off to continue this season?

Sub, go to the main home page of this year's league. Mouse over the My Team tab, from the drop down menu, select Choose Keepers. That will show you your roster from last year and what players you can choose from for your keepers.

If you want to view other teams final rosters (for instance, if you wanted to try to trade to upgrade your keepers, perhaps with BBF), navigate back to the league overview page. At the top of the standings, click All Time, then click 2011. You will have access to all the teams as they were at the end of the season.

PM me if you need any other help. Or want to trade... :D
