Yeah 6, I've got 5 locked in myself with one slot I'm waffling on
there is absolutely no way you pull another bullshit 8th inning hr in the fucking last game possible to win this year, i am going to fucking hold on this time.Y'all ready for dat fourpeat?
Projected value is bullshit. Taking a flier on someone like Tanaka last year was with the assumption I'd be keeping him for the $19 I paid this year, not having to fork out $40 for him because it happened to be a good pick. Similarly, I overpaid out of the ass for Trout, so me getting him at projected value would piss a lot of people off I reckon. We agreed to do what we paid for I'm pretty sure.Norm was for keepers to be at projected value this season I thought, otherwise some teams can't compete year to year. Also I support 6 keepers and trading retention rights if possible
I would much rather a constant increase than a percentage increase. if its 25% anyone expensive is dumb to keep, every keeper will end up being a random $1 pickup who worked well last year.I'm going to fool around with the settings today, but my understanding was that the price you'd keep players at would be what you paid for last season + a percentage increase. It seems like the best scenario in my opinion. Say a 25% increase over last year's draft price?
UncleSam if you want to be in then cool. If not then just say so and we'll fit more people in.
I think this is fair. It's a good compromise to prevent stuff like me getting Trout for a steal but stops me from getting fucked over for taking a chance on Tanaka.What if we do it by how much you paid last year for a player or half of a player's projected value, whichever is higher. That way, it doesn't give people incentive to load up on elite players in the draft (e.g. Stall keeping Trout for a steal of $52 projected value versus the $69 he paid in the draft), yet people like me who invested in Jose Abreu can still reap the benefits (I would pay $19 versus the projected $37) while it not being too much of an advantage over other teams. And in future seasons, we can consider adding $5 to the price to keep a player for multiple years each year thereafter.
As I said, I'm open to hearing others' viewpoints and am willing to work with whatever decision we go with. I'm confident in the options I have to carry over into this season and will contend regardless.
