    2013 Fantasy Baseball

    I run a few fantasy baseball leagues every year, and I would like to start one up for this website.

    Yahoo is far and away the best fantasy website, so I will be using yahoo as the home website. This is the only thing that I will not leave up for discussion, as playing on ESPN or CBS really detracts from the fantasy experience for me .

    It will be a league with mostly default rules, all of which are up for debate, but would need majority to change. I am a democratic commissioner, so if people voice their concern, I will adhere to them, even if I have an opposing viewpoint.

    Default rules start with 5x5 scoring (Runs, HR, RBI, SB, AVG X Wins, Strikeouts, Saves, ERA, WHIP). Default also implies Head to Head, but either H2H or Roto is fine with me, also if we can only come up with an odd number of players, Roto will have to do.
    Trades, I would prefer to have commissioner ruling on, as most people do not stay active enough in a fantasy baseball league. But if preferred by the league, I will do league vote.

    I also prefer to not have waivers, as I employ the pitch and ditch philosophy of fantasy baseball in head 2 head formats, but am open to whatever.

    If this really takes off and is successful, we can turn this into a keeper league down the road, or perhaps a dynasty league (a league that plays multiple sports with the same people).

    Also, I am aware of the issues in trying to set a date for a Live Draft. What I do is take all the people who actually respond to the "what day and time is good for you" discussion and set up a date set in stone from those responses. I will not move the date after that unless majority wishes it, but it will need to be more than majority (i.e. 7+ people in a 12 man league)

    I keep active the entire season and will update Commissioner's notes and discussions within the league, unless I am the only one, and end up talking to myself.

    Leave a message below if you are interested and I will PM you when Yahoo opens it's fantasy baseball leagues, which generally happens the week following the Super Bowl.

    Not sure how the commish will run things, but I know in 2 of the fantasy football leagues I was in this year, guys felt the same way. They just sat out the draft and let it autopick based on their board. Depending on work, I may be in the same boat as far as doing autodraft

    It will be a Live draft, but as far as drafting its extremely rare to have the entire league there. So I have no issues with people letting yahoo auto draft for them.

    I'm in! I typically join a Yahoo public league for baseball, so this would be an improvement.

    Commish,

    Once the season starts it would be a good idea to write the yahoo team name by each member that joins that way we know who from this site we will face week in and week out if thats koo with you + other players, just saying.

    the way you set up the stats for fantasy points are the standard one for H2H competions which i like and prefer over Roto.

    Hey Jerks! if your name doesnt have a team name next to it in the OP, you have not yet joined the league but have been sent an invitation.

    Join already. Sheesh.

    I still haven't received an invite. Not sure if you missed me or if my email sent you to spam and I missed it. Perhaps ask before jumping like that

    Patience is key........its not easy!!!

    I am the Red Dragons.....I was meaning to sign up for the past few days but keep forgetting..........so I am in!

    its fun when there are 12 teams, but with what we have we need even number of teams or else it will change from H2H to ROTO.

    ROTO is like the football league where the team with the highest total points or is in 1st place wins!!

    H2H is fun because of the playoff format..........6 teams in 6 teams out...............hope more peeps can join.....


    3 OPEN SLOTS LEFT.............SEASON STARTS MARCH 31st!!
