A little later than normal getting things rolling this year. But its time to start Dirty Dozen 2020 season. Pitchers and catchers reported yesterday and today and baseball is officially a thing again! But we'll get this up so people can post trade talks if need be, post keepers, ask questions, check in, all that good stuff.

The Dirty Dozen League Constitution
Entry Fee = $30 (Due by Opening Day) Fee paid to Great One, I believe he prefers paypal.


Each team will name 7 keepers. To be eligible, the player must appear on your roster on the last day of the prior season.

The 2020 season starts a bit earlier this year with multiple games on Thursday, March 26. The past few years we've finished in 7-8 days. Therefore keepers will be due by Friday March 13 at 11:59pm EST. The draft will begin Monday March 16 at 8am EST.


Next Day Transactions - Daily/Tomorrow
Waivers - Continual Rolling List

Payouts = $360
1st Place $245
2nd Place $ 75
3rd Place $ 30
Draftime $ 10*

Trade Review
Commish review, will push through in about 24 hours unless anyone raises any questions/concerns. Generally the next morning unless a trade was accepted the evening before.

Categories & Positions
Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util (new)
SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

Trade Deadline
Last available date offered by Yahoo (usually about a month before season ends)



* - draftime is typically paid by the last place team and not part of the prize pot.

it's definitely been a crazy year.

Considering two of my first five picks and my keeper pitching ace have barely played this season, it's hard to imagine being in it.

But i got pretty insane value from my 11th, 12th, 14th, and 17th round picks, so that may have something to do with it.

Congrats to Tree. Your second title, and funny you might have been the only one to vote to scrap the prize pool this year. I tried to make it interesting but ran out of time. Maybe if I had 3 more months =)

A wild year and I can't believe MLB was able to complete the regular season after a tumultuous start. I'm glad we were able to play as normal of a season as possible. That wraps up our 17th year.

i thought of that the other day, and i don't even remember what we actually decided to do.

it's been a long time since i won this league, so even in this shortened season, it feels nice.

I led almost wire to wire, and by quite a bit, but you definitely had me sweating in the final few weeks - i had such a commanding lead, but there's a handful of managers that i make me nervous when they start surging, and you're one of them! :D

I honestly hadn't even realized the regular season was over. Hardly have time to breath these days. Feel guilty for taking time away from school to even post this. But Tree earned a great victory. Well done, man!

Well league- I can't do it. My Commissioner Khahan days are over. If this semester of nursing school has taught me one thing its that I dont have time for a life and most definitely wont have the time next year up to set up the league, set up draftime, enter player etc. I'm putting in a 16 hour day on average about once a week. Most weeks I'm puttig in at least 11-12 hours of school and studying. And weekends- 6-7 hours at the library every saturday and 5-6 hours every sunday.
I had no clue regular season baseball even ended. So I think its in the best interest of the league that I step down as commissioner. I wont take nominations - this league runs itself for the most part, but whoever the new commissioner is has got to be somebody willing to do it on their not - not roped into it. So if you are willing to step up, post here or better yet, shoot me an email.

I'll decide about returning as a manager in jan/early feb. That will be a few weeks into the start of the next semester and I'll have a better feel for if i'll be able to handle a single fantasy team at that point.

Khahan-I also want to thank you for the time you have put in commishing and hope that you that you will continue to compete in DD.
Also, I hope that someone will be able to take over as commish.
Good luck in your career in nursing. It is demanding as well as rewarding.

Hey folks,
Still dont have a firm "I will commish" from anybody. I did get a few (I think 2?) responses a few months back stating they'd be willing to do it if nobody else steps up. I can assure you, with this league, commish is mostly ceremonial. The most work will be the first year you do it - you have to set up the league on draftime again, send invites and make sure everybody registers again. After that, you just hit renew and draftime does everything else. This league practically runs itself.
I can even appoint a commish and co-commish and let you guys share duties if you want.

I can commish it on Yahoo, confirm who is back when I collect etc. But I don't have the time to coordinate Draftime and enter the, trades and players etc.

Obligatory pitch of my guys for anyone looking to improve there keeper list going into the season. Most of my keepers took a step back last year but I still have several excess top 50 guys who should certainly be kept as well as a few others who could improve many lists.

I would only move the first 4 listed for players that would improve my overall keeper list but would move the rest for picks. Of my top guys I am looking to move 1-2 pitchers and a hitter and I am leaning towards keeping Franco.

Top 50
Yelich
Bellinger
Darvish
Bregman
Rendon
Alonso
Snell
Lynn
Franco

Keeper Lights
Hendricks
Clevinger
Sale
Correa

Potential Keepers and trade pieces:
Most likely looking at:
Trea Turner
Trevor Story
Ozzie Albies
Yoan Moncada
Jack Flaherty
Stephen Strasburg

Other pieces worth checking out:
Lourdes Gurriel Jr
Nick Castellanos
Matt Chapman
Frankie Montas

Since we have 2 Util slots I'm not too overly concerned with having 2 of the top rated SS. But i'm always willing to listen to offers that diversify my list a bit.

Do we have a date for when keepers will be due and the draft will be starting? We have traditionally done mid march so I assume we are looking at something only a couple weeks from now.

Pitching my guys again for a team looking improve keeper list. The guys in the top grouping would improve almost any keeper list (with guys at the top requiring player for player swaps and the bottom of first list available for picks perhaps).

The second list would be real cheap if someone wants a backend keeper at a discount or to play a longer term strategy (e.g. Clev/Sale)

Top 50
Yelich
Bellinger
Darvish
Bregman
Franco
Rendon

Since I will be running the draft, I hope I might have some voice in this. I'm doing it for three keeper leagues this year along with RIBC AAA, so there's much for me to do.

This is what I am using for 8 MEN OUT (we're still looking for two more if interested):

15 MAR ALL Keepers Due (Rotoguru thread)
16 MAR TARGET BEGIN MLB Draft (Draftime)
30 MAR TARGET END MLB Draft
01 APR Start of Season

Look OK?

I think all that seems fine. If I recall, i usually always tried to start it to time with the opening round of March Madness... a good reminder of course but also because Final Four weekend (2 weeks later) usually matched up with Opening Day/Weekend.
