Just a quick note as I have seen a couple similar posts. I have a draft this weekend for a keeper league that I participate in. This league has been going for about 5 or 6 years and this will be my 3rd season in the league. We have a total of 15 MLB keepers and 5 minor league keepers.
Minor League Keepers:
**Bumgarner and Heyward were deemed to be MLB eligible only this year so had to keep them on the big club instead of the minors team.**
We draft this Sunday afternoon. Total of 13 rounds to fill out the rest of our rosters (10 total minor leaguers / 23 MLB guys). My team was very pitching heavy last year and it helped me make the playoffs for the first time - took over a team that was dead last a couple years ago so I am happy with that (aptly named it The Denominators when I took over the team on the very bottom of the league). I traded away some high draft picks along with some nice players to get some guys last year like Zimmerman and King Felix. Also this offseason I sent Ian Kinsler and Rick Porcello away in a trade that netted me Prince Fielder and Joe Saunders. Draft strategy will most likely focus on offensive depth especially in the OF position and increasing my power/speed categories since pitching is essentially done with all those nice young keeper arms up there.
Its a very well run league and lots of activity through trading all year round. I will post the my team draft results Sunday night or early next week.
