If you don't have a time, it's too late, it's just about full, with the exception of Friday night @ 10:30pm perhaps being still open.

I noticed they opened the floodgates today around 4:30pm and tried to get a time. Every single time I'd get a time picked, it'd keep saying to "pick a valid time", meaning they were filling up before I got finished.

Anyhow, I did manage to get a time for a live draft with 12 teams, if anyone's interested this year. I suppose it'd be the right thing to do to allow those participating in the annual HTF leagues to sign up first; this will be my 3rd year of stinking up the joint. Posted Image

I'd like to participate. What kind of league is it by the way? In my opinion the roto leagues are the best since player cycling usually isn't as much as a problem.

Yahoo constantly opens new draft times , if everything looks full now dont worry they'll open more slots.

I'll be more than happy to start an HTF league through Yahoo (or Sportsline or ESPN if anyone wants to pay) if anyone wants me to get the ball rolling. I just need to know what system (H2H, Roto?), how many teams, what universe (ML,NL or AL), a draft time suitable for all and the scoring categories. Let me

Mark, last year we went to a head to head format after previously trying pure roto...kept more people invoved and I think it went over well. Full MLB universe, not league specific and you will never find a draft time suitable for all, just pick something at night around 10pm. Us East Coast guys have to suck it up a bit, but it gives the West coast guys time to get home from work to participate. The scoring categories were....

HR, RBI, Runs, Avg. SB for offense
W, SVS, K's, ERA and WHIP (Walks and hits divided by innings pitched) for pitchers.

How many teams? Usually between 12-16, I think last year it was 14.

I'm up for it again. My team was in it right up to the end but fell a little short. I think my team name was California Quakes but I've got too many leagues and it's hard to keep track of names. Posted Image

I actually prefer later draft hours because my boys like to use me as a jungle gym. It makes it tough to concentrate.

Evan, thats exactly the type of league I was looking for. If you do MLB, and its head to head, it needs to be more than 12 teams because owners "stream" their pitchers. I hate that.

If anyone wants in the league (besides those who already told me) please e-mail me at murph369900@yahoo.com
I can send out the league invites right from there.
If you have sent me an e-mail already and you haven't heard back from me, please e-mail again. Sometimes my spamblocker knocks some legit e-mails out.
