    i only mentioned it because you were discussing records with Eric earlier and they are useless with this format. Again, not a complaint, just making sure everyone understands that your record will be meaningless. I am totally cool with that. In fact I prefer it. In such a short season it seems that how you perform all 8 or 9 weeks should decide where you are rather than having horrible luck bounce you after two or three weeks.

    I mean even MLB is doing it wonky. You have teams competing against each other for the WC that will have ZERO common opponents. Itís A crazy year and thereís no good answer to it.

    Right, so you can go (0-8) and make the playoffs if you're the highest or second highest scoring team.

    So just so we're clear: 8 weeks of intra-division matchups. Top 4 points teams to playoffs. 2 weeks of playoffs.

    Also, just so we're clear, if this season doesn't count, am I correct to assume that:
    - we can't change keepers for 2021, and keeper rounds and no. of keeps doesn't change
    - if we trade keepers, the trade will not influence next year's keepers (so whoever has the keeper now, gets to keep them next year, even if they trade them away later this season)
    - minor league player status remains the same (for example, if i promote a mL player to my roster, I can still keep him with a mL slot next season)
    - mL AB / IP minimums will not change keeper status (so if someone, say, pitches 50 innings this year, he can still be kept with a mL slot next season)

    I've been a part of this league for 17 years now and this is the dumbest idea I've ever seen for a season.

    What happens with keepers and draft position for next year?

    I am not participating this year. Just making a valid roster.

    Enjoy friends.

    No, not really. I think I am actually gonna cash my chips in and not play this league anymore. My personal life has been getting really busy in a good way and I just don't have the same fun in this league as I once did.

    Thank you everyone for the past 17 years! It's been a slice!

    This league is more for forum members anyways. I rarely visit this place anymore.
    Time to give another one of John's kids a spot!

    Keepers and draft position stay locked at the start of this year.
