Serious Biz Dynasty Year 14 - Where Prospects Have More Value Than In Real Life

2021 Edition

14th year, 2nd board, 3rd thread

12 teams, 480 rostered players

Franchise stability is a wonderful thing.

RIP former league members Finless (Chris Holmes) and Tremendous Upside (Sean Gullen)

Link to old thread

Next steps:

  1. See if Greedygoat's friend still works for CBS  Paid :towelwave:
  2. Roster cutdown to 40 players by Super Bowl Sunday
  3. Protect 25 keepers.  Remainder will be unprotected for competitive balance draft.
  4. FOUR round competitive balance draft in reverse order of 2020 standings (Non-snake).  Each team can only lose three unprotected players.
  5. Process any necessary drops to get all teams back to 40 man rosters
  6. Annual waivers cycle using waivers order carried over from last year.
  7. Open transactions (FCFS) for the remainder of the season
  8. Spartans Rule is holding the funds again this year (I think)

Do you play at ESPN or Yahoo or somewhere else? Edit: What is BBT?

Also, how do you handle adding Cubans or Japan League players? Does someone keep a spreadsheet of who has who?

League sounds intriguing. Please keep me in mind for a spot.

League is hosted on CBS. BBT is a defunct site that pre-dates this board.

We track players not in the CBS database on the league site. With Tanaka and the Cubans coming in this year, there's currently nobody on the list but there usually are a handful of names.

Yea

Oh, the choices are overwhelming. :mellow:

Yeah, that's a problem in years with dispersal drafts

For a guy like myself that traded his RP last season with the idea of trying to replenish the corp after an off-season that opened up a spot or two, it's a complete screw job. No way around it, really.

0 projected saves on my roster. (and it was by design)

Waiver wire locks at the end of the season. It reopens in March with a one-round draft from worst to first to allow people to make transactions. You guys took all the good players this year, rendering it a fairly useless exercise this season. In years that we don't have a dispersal draft, the bottom five or so usually end up with a pretty useful player out of all this.

Yeah, I get that. Just not sure why we would be included at this point. Seems like we shouldn't be involved in this for this year. I'm also not sure I follow the comment about the "new teams" not indicating who we're dropping.

Oh, well I guess more or less you're getting the last priority to make a selection before it becomes a FCFS for everyone else. Its entirely likely you guys would simply pass on that option.

I'd like to get some younger bats on my team. I have some talent to deal that could really help a team that needs pitching this year. Probably my highest end chip is Cliff Lee. Can also help people out with saves as well. Willing to deal most others though too. Not looking to tear everything down and rebuild but some young major league hitters or pitchers would help out.

Though I too am puzzled by you not needing to drop anyone.

What is the roster max? I think we have 36 now. Is it 37 or something?

36 with a DL slot I believe.

There's an injured slot that's effectively a 37th man. CBS injury info on minor leaguers is worthless so I stopped enforcement of the DL two years ago.

Okay, makes sense then. I have a few names still on my shortlist.

I'll take a look. I have not much depth at all but I am in a spot to try and make a push.

Semi-available: David Wright, Shin-Soo Choo, Max Scherzer, Cole Hamels, Bobby Parnell.

Very available: Miguel Montero, Jhonny Peralta, Coco Crisp, Will Venable, Jake Peavy.

Goal is to get younger without totally blowing up the team. Looking for young MLB players or nearly-ready prospects.
