Keep or Kut – Using the soon-to-draft Keep or Kut listener leagues as an excuse, Chad (@ChadYoung) and Pete (@PeteBBaseball) invite Adam Howe (@eightygrade) onto the show to talk league settings. What scoring do you want to use? How big should your rosters be? What about keepers? And a whole lot more.
2:05 – Our guest, Adam Howe, tells us about his keeper leagues
8:48 – Welcome to the Keep or Kut Listener Leagues!
11:30 – Scoring and standings: There are pros and cons to season-long leagues vs. head-to-head; Chad tells you why points is checkers to roto chess; and we land on two different approaches for our two leagues.
32:15 – Draft vs. Auction? While there are great reasons to choose an auction, sometimes a draft is just simpler.
37:26 – Rosters and lineups vary quite a bit, just on the offensive side. We debate how many C and share a preference for deeper lineups.
42:27 – Pitching has fewer choices, but you still have to decide if you are splitting SP and RP or just using a pile of pitchers.
47:44 – Your bench size can’t be determined in a vacuum, as roster construction, IL spots, and other factors play a role.
54:01 – Both lineups and transactions can be daily, weekly, or anything in between. Plus the benefits of FAAB vs. Waivers or fastest finger.
1:04:09 – How should we include minor leaguers in these leagues?
1:10:41 – Last, but certainly not least, what about the keeper rules? How many players are kept? What do they cost? And more.
