Welcome. Myself and Hometeam are starting a Dynasty League. We currently have 4 owners and are looking for 8 more. Because of time restraints a live draft will occur once we have our owners in place.

Please look over the settings:

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/tools/leag ... ueId=96643

The roster is currently a 25 man roster. The number of Dynasty players will be determined by the league. If your committed to a league and are open to a live draft. Post in this thread or Pm myself or Hometeam and we'll send out an invite.

I would be interested in the dyno. One question. Can we draft non MLB players or players not in database?

That's something I'd be interested in. Choosing someone not in the ESPN data base would not be a competitive advantage for you, so I see no problem. You could choose a player no one would ever pick for the roster spot. Add a note on ESPN or the league thread to designate your player. Then switch'em out when they hit the ESPN data base. Once we get all the owners set, that's something we'll for sure discuss.

I hear the two used almost interchangeably but...can someone clarify the typical differences between Dynasty and Keeper?

My understanding of Dynasty is where you keep a larger number or all of your players. For instance in this league I was thinking 20 out of 25. It can definitely be discussed as to the final number.

my understanding:

Dynasty leagues are basically keeper leagues, but you get to keep almost your entire roster each year. So after the inaugural draft, really the only players being picked that have significance each year are the new crop of rookies. Dynasty leagues hypothetically allow team owners to attempt to build a Fantasy Baseball 'dynasty'.

..which is basically what Bohican just stated. :lol:

So if I choose to draft some 18 year old prospect in single A currently, that would not be a problem even though an ETA may not be for a season or two?

I think we can work out a system where that is possible. It's something that needs to be discussed as far as a procedure for adding a "Non ESPN Data Base" player. I'd think you'd have to have a roster spot for that player. Either you'd only carry 24 players, or a scrub could be designated in his stead. For example. I know prospect Thomas Hansen Braves is currently in the system. For this example he isn't. You want to add Hansen. You would add a scrub (Mike Kiger 2b SEA). On the League thread or on ESPN League page a note would say Thomas Hanson = Mike Kiger on Longhorns roster. Once Hansen is available your drop Kiger and add hansen. The only issue I can see is if 2 owners want the same player. We could get around this by designating mondays as "ESPN Non Database Player" day. You can put in a claim for a player, on Mondays they'll be processed by waiver order. Bottom line in a Dynasty league if you want a A ball player you should be able to do so .

Any particular reason we're keeping to 12? If we get 10 would that be sufficient?

I'm guessing "12" teams is the optimal goal here but we'd go with 10 if we don't fill up soon.....

We haven't set the draft date yet till we get more owners. At that point we can try to find a date and time that could work best for everyone.
