  1. Should we add a 6th keeper in 2021 due to the chaos of 2020 and an inability to really judge players with the shortened season and other issues?
  2. Based on the crap product we're seeing now and the pile of injuries, I'm not opposed to putting it to a vote. I'd only allow for 1 more keeper, though. We need to have a good player pool to draw some for the draft and taking up to 120 guys off the list is cutting too deep. I'll post a poll for it. I should have foreseen the above average pile of injuries coming. A long layoff and short ramp up time has wreaked havoc on the players who are creatures of routine/habit.
  3. Well, that didn't take long. I now have 5 IL guys to go along with a new opt out. Even WITH the additional IL slots, I can't put in a full lineup due to "Day to Day" injuries and multiple game postponements. What a $hit show...
  4. 5 may work now, but I'll bet we'll see more teams use 5+ IL slots over the upcoming weeks the way things are going. Your secondary point is a good one. I don't think all of our managers have been paying as much attention as usual. Godfather didn't submit a lineup until day 4 of the season (all guys were still on BN since draft) and may not make IP limit. Others have IL slots not filled with eligible players. Others have IL slots filled with players who have returned. I'm not really complaining, but this season is turning into a "just for something to do" type of year. I've acquiesced to that reality at this point...
  5. It's not a permanent change. Just for the season. Combine injuries with the fact that Yahoo has put COVID players as IL eligible as opposed to NA and it's just the best option. If Yahoo had allowed it earlier, I would have done so before the season started anyway. If anyone else thinks it's too much, let me know. I guess I'd be open to reducing it back to 5. Just trying to do my best to ensure that managers don't have to drop short term IL players to fill out a lineup card.
  6. NOTE - Yahoo has bumped IL slots from 5 max to 10. I have adjusted ours to 7 for now. You are now allowed to place two extra guys on IL if (when) needed. I can't see how they can play this out. It's already gotten ridiculous. Too many games getting postponed and it looks like the Marlins are hopelessly lost in COVID hell.
  7. Well, this delayed season is turning into a mess already. Lots of injuries with pitchers (especially) going down all over the place. Likely due to short ramp up time and conditioning. Many others getting COVID. And now, a significant COVID outbreak with the Marlins that is causing postponements of other games as well. Bleak...
  8. 2019 does not matter any longer except for players on your current roster with a K next to their name. Nothing else relating to 2019 matters. If they have a K next to their name, you can keep them for the same exact same round value (and service years) as they had heading into this year's draft. If a guy on your current roster does NOT have a K next to their name AND was drafted this season, you can keep them in 2021 using the league's standard keeper rules. Undrafted players from this year's draft (or 2019) are not eligible for keepers. Drafted players from 2019 who are or were on the WW this season are not eligible as keepers.
  9. Almost. The only clarification is that there are no restrictions for number of swap outs. If you want to swap out all 5 of your pre-draft 2020 keepers with drafted players from 2020, you can. It's not limited to one. Those new keepers would take up the slot +3 rounds ahead, though, where your existing 5 keepers would not.
  10. Only the keepers you chose this year are eligible to be held again next year at the same value as this year. No other 2019 drafted players are eligible and are irrelevant for the 2021 draft. You CAN choose an alternate player from your 2020 draft as a new keeper if you want to. Players drafted in 2020 incur the +3 round hit heading into the 2021 draft though. If this causes a round conflict, you'll have to deal with it as we always do with round conflicts. Get another pick in that round or incur a +4 round move for one of the players. This will not count as a service year for them (or existing keepers) though.
  11. It looks like Yahoo is treating COVID19 players as IL guys. Only Opt-outs are getting put into NA status. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do to expand roster size or to add more IL slots. The commish tools simply don't allow it. Sigh...
  12. Yes, we had 5 last year - I've discovered that is the max allowed by Yahoo. Nothing I can do...
  13. Reminder that I will be resetting transaction counts to zero tomorrow (likely in the early evening East Coast time). So, stuff in any last minute WW freebies you'd like to make by then. Good luck to all - hopefully, it'll be a decent mini-season and we can, at a minimum, discover some new keepers from our rosters or to target for next season's draft.
