League has been auto renewed.I'm setting the draft for oooooohhhh, let's say Sun March 22 at 4pm EST.Please please please get me your keeper picks by the Sunday before so I can set rosters and draft order.
What is new this year? I've added a 3rd IL slot.We will be doing a weighted draft lottery based on last year's standings. Congrats again to last year's champ, NA, btw! For keeper purposes age is going to be calculated as-of April 1st instead of the always-shifting opening day. And it looks like Johnny Crunch will be retiring (sad face), with possibly a new GM taking over.
Keeper/player status spreadsheet is here
and as always, the rules:• total of 5 keepers• 2 of which must be 27, 28 or 29 yrs old• another 2 players 26 or under• one final keeper that can be either (basically anyone under the age of 30)• age is calculated as-of April 1• for a player to be keep-eligible he must have been drafted on draft day by your team or traded to you by a team that drafted him. that means:• free agent/waiver pick-ups cannot be kept• if you have less than 5 keepers, you will get an extra draft pick at the end of the draft• keep it clean

i'm set on four of my keepers but am vacillating between two players for the fifth slot

i'll just repost this here:
i feel "ok" about my keepers i guess:
Bogaerts (27-29)Tatis (<27)Conforto (27-29)Dahl (<27)Benintendi (<27)
i'm worried Benintendi not-so-secretly sucks but he's also only 25 and looks to have a more prominent lineup role w/Betts gone.

I put those into the sheet btw! should be ok now. A total of 9 players were traded, I only inputted the ones who are keeper relevant (i.e. weren't dropped or aren't going to be over 30)
also seeing the apr 1 thing now -- changing the "opening date" in the sheet, as I had it at 03-28. This has only effected 3 players, making them a year older, but they didn't change age brackets so no worries (dahl, bregman, and matt olson are 26, not 25). be sure to doublecheck tho, i found an error in the formula and had to "set" the date to apr2, i'm too brain-tired to fix now.
i think you mentioned off-season trades were ok last year? if so, misters broccoli and beforetime plz check webmails?

Hard no to offseason trades. No email goes out and no chance for GMs to vote against via the yahoo app.
