I do not recall having read about a final decision on roster size for these teams, nor active player requirements. Sorry if this has been settled, but here are my thoughts:

I think an active roster of 25 is simply way too big. It takes all free agency components out of the game, as the only players left will be 5 PA/Week players. I'd be much more in favor of 10 position players (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, DH, UTIL) 6 Pitchers (4 SP, 2 RP) and 4 Bench would allow for a lot more movement outside of players you've drafted and trades.

As far as minor leagues go, like 5 roster spots in initial year, all keepers until they lose rookie eligibility (or 2-3 years after) with one more spot added on every year to accommodate new prospects/draftees?

(Also, this will be my first keeper/dynasty league, so if any of that above is ludicrous, let me know.)

I might be confused but a keeper league does not mean we have a "minor" league it means we can keep 5 players we draft, trade, acquire this year for next years team, but they have to be on your roster for the entire year. As of right now the roster seems to be 21 and that seemed to be the max the site would allow, but I'll check into it some more.

Sam please let us know since you used fleaflicker before.

This is from the fleaflicker FAQ:

Keeper Rules

An owner in a keeper league can choose to keep any number of players up to the allowable maximum. There is no penalty for keeping a player. You do not lose a draft pick. If you choose not to keep the maximum allowable number of players, you will be awarded an extra draft pick at the end of the draft. All players not designated as keepers by the start of the draft will be released as free agents that are eligible for drafting.

Oh, ok, I thought this league had a minor league component to it, my bad.

And I just found the roster size in the fleaflicker page, looks good.

Feel free to delete this whole thread, its pretty unecessary, my bad

There are a lot of minor league guys available who could become keeper candidates. Any idea if there is a time on roster limit, or are only the guys we draft eligible to be keepers?

Good question, I check into it. I assume your asking if we can add players through wavier/FA/trade players to our keeper roster and if so if there is a time deadline for setting your keepers (ie the trade deadline). Is that correct?

Yes, that's what I'm asking. The other keeper league I am in lets you keep anyone on your roster at the end of the year, I figured that fleaflicker might have a similar rule, and we might not know for sure until the beginning of next season, when we pick our keepers.

you can assign any player you pick up to be a keeper. It doesn't matter how you acquired them, and as far as I know there is no time limit on designating your keepers. Hope that helps.

Yes, it helps. It gives me much less incentive to take any kind of prospect in the draft who won't be on an opening day roster.

Just remember the wavier wire with 24 teams can make it difficult to get those prime prospects through free agency.

That's true, I'll have to keep on my toes in this league.

Thats true but I wouldn't not draft any prospects either. I just wouldn't get more than one or two

Welcome to the Message Board

Sorry Spoda the league is full but you can always start a new league and recruit on here, I know there were a few people that were hoping to join. I'd highly suggest Fleaflicker.com
