Serious Biz Dynasty Year 14 - Trade deadline is Sept 1

Recommended Posts

I am fine but my life now is super busy. I will drop out of this league but I will send Spartan pay for 2014 and 2015 this week.

Received. :thumbup:

I am so sorry for the delay. I won't go deep into the backstory but I am teaching again after a long health issue prevented full time work. Particularly at the school I am currently working, I just don't have a ton of free time to devote myself to this league to the standard it deserves. Best of luck to everyone.

Sorry to hear that, Boub. Hope things are better now. I'm sure there's some way we can keep your team together if you think you'll have a chance to get back to it at some point in the future. Would be a shame to see your long-term rebuild go back into the pool at this point.

Man that's tough Boub. Hopefully you're on the mend and everything else is on the upswing. Between your issues and the deaths of Finless and TU, it's been a terrible year for Serious Biz owner and a reminder that real life trumps pretend baseball.

I wish there was a way to keep team Boub intact. It literally has taken years of tanking to get that squad into a position to contend. But his roster is the strongest of the three dispersal franchises by far. It wouldn't be fair to the other new owners to hand over Boub's team and break up the other two. If the new owners just rolled for the three existing teams, the guy who drew the Harryhood straw would be screwed.

BTW: Kraft says he's in :thumbup:

I should have been more specific. I was more or less suggesting we explore leaving the team in Boub's name (since he has paid for 2015) with someone potentially helping him steer the ship this season in hopes that he'd be in better shape to run things in 2016.

But I totally get making sure the guys that have signed up are allowed to draft from the dispersal pool they were promised.

If Boub prefers this route I could help with caretaking.

I've given some though to keeping BoubCheese together while increasing competitive balance for shady inc and Kraft II.

Here's a proposal for discussion.

1. Turn over Boub's team to Cheese for 2015

2. Cheese gets to protect 2 players

3. shady inc and Kraft get to pick 1 unprotected player from BoubCheese.

4. Start dispersal draft of Elvis' and Harry's teams plus available free agents. Whoever got first choice of BoubCheese gets first pick in the draft

5. After 10 rounds of the dispersal draft, Cheese protects 10 more BoubCheese players

6. shady inc and Kraft get to pick 1 more unprotected player from BoubCheese. Reroll for honors I guess :shrug:

7. BoubCheese gets to fill his 4 vacant slots at 11.1, 12,3, 13.1 & 14.3 of the dispersal draft

8. Run dispersal draft to completion (round 37)

so basically, BoubCheese will lose its 3rd, 4th, 15th and 16th best players but will stay largely intact. The two new teams will have a better shot at competing. It seems fair but I'm open to better ideas.

Sure. I do want to be in this league but my time is torn apart now. There is a good chance I can return in 2016 after I get really used to the full time/over time in my career now. A boubcheese owner partner team is completely fine with me. I can help cheese this year sometimes and then be a half/half owner in 2016.

i guess i'll wait until a decision is made on this. i'm not interested if it ends up going this route. don't get me wrong, it seems fair and makes complete sense, and i wouldn't want the guy to miss out on years of putting his team together, it just wouldn't be what i'm looking for.

Fair enough shady inc. I wasn't trying to pull a bait and switch but Boub has been in this thing for a long time. Continuity is one of the most important things in a dynasty league so we have to try and preserve existing franchises wherever possible.

Is this code for quitting because the pool isn't as good as he thought it would be? Seems like a short-term decision for a dynasty league.

so if two owners would have come back after i joined, should i just have accepted the 3rd team as my team even though i signed up under the presumption of a 3 team dispersal draft?

No big deal shady inc. I understand your position. Hang around the BBF some more and don't let RnR hurt your feelings.

BoubCheese looks like it's going to be a thing and Kraft is the only new confirmed owner. So here's another proposal to consider.

1. BoubCheese stays intact

2. Harryhood and Flying Elvis teams get disbanded.

3. We contract from 13 to 12 teams

4. Kraft gets the first 13 picks (half a roster) from the dispersal pool.

5. We all do our annual add/drop cycle (1 round) of what's left including dispersed teams and free agents

6. Kraft finishes filling the rest of his team.

If ever a team deserved to be blown up, it's Harry's. The pool got a whole lot shallower once Boub's guys were taken out. Kraft will come out with some core players but still has some work ahead of him. Trying to fill two new teams from the detritus of the Harryhood and Flying Elvis teams would not be good for the long term health of the league.

Looks good to me.

Any chance we could bump this up a bit? Maybe to 16? Went through the dispersal group and that would allow for a few prospects. Guessing the add/drops won't leave much meat on the bone if we keep it at 13.

14 1/2?

The add/drops will also include the free agent pool, minor leaguers, Cubans, high school kids, etc.

Another way to do this could be just to give Kraft the Flying Elvis roster (clearly the better of the two) plus first pick in a leaguewide dispersal draft of harryhood's team.

It'd be a little less arbitrary, although I'm fine with whatever the league decides.

That's another option. I have a tendency to overcomplicate things.

Harry's team is really bad--Hanley Ramirez is the prize and things go downhill quickly from him. The Flying Elvis team finished ahead of Yu Mama last year. If we go down this route, I think it would be fairer to have Kraft and Yu Mama roll for first pick in the Harrydraft.

I just noticed this thread and will always be interested in trying to help if players are needed.

I have time and money.....

You guys may have the time and the money, but do you have the masochism?

Would love to add either ChemX or AoD to the mix and stay at 13, but the weak dispersal pool remains a problem.

I think there's probably two teams worth of hitting between the dead teams and the free agent pool. The lack of pitching is the problem. Elvis and Harry were the bottom two in 2014 pitching by a pretty large margin.

We could make this like an expansion draft where the returning teams are able to protect X pitchers (or players) and add the unprotected players to the draft pool. No team could lose more than one player from their current roster. This wouldn't supply any front line pitching but it would increase depth.

Agreed, committed owners are great, those bottom 2 teams are really bad though, I'd be willing to do the protection/expansion draft concept. Of course pitching is my weaker area as well.

I could partner with X or Kraft as needed, not sure what is going on here. I said last fall I'd be interested in returning, but can wait for future years if you guys are good to go.

I sent you a PM a while ago

19 February 2015 was "a while ago?"

I don't care for your general understanding of time old man.
