Hi all. With the glorious baseball season less than a month away, I set out to start up my annual Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball League. Here's the scoop: 20 teams in the league, 18 of which are currently unowned. Players from both the AL and the NL will be used because hopefully we'll have all 20 teams filled. I usually do an NL-only league, but I doubt it would work with so many teams. Teams will have a maximum of 20 players on them, from which you start the following: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, and a utility spot for any offensive player. On any given day, you can start 2 SPs, 2 RPs and then 2 pitchers that are either starters OR relievers. (This comes in handy if you have a good closer, or three good starters playing on the same day.) Teams will be chosen through an online draft that will take place on Tuesday, March 12 at 6:35 PM PT. It's important that you can "attend" and draft your own team, as Yahoo!'s "auto-pick" has a nasty habit of sucking. Real bad. Statistical Categories - Offense - Home runs, Batting average, RBIs, runs and Stolen Bases. Pitching - Wins, Strikeouts, Earned Run Average, Saves and WHIP (Walks/Hits per Innings Pitched) If you're not ultra-fluent in Fantasy Baseball, it's much simpler than it sounds. All HTF members are welcome to join, but I would ask one small favor: Please join ONLY if you're willing to follow the league throughout the entire baseball season. This game is best suited for hardcore baseball fans who don't mind checking their team 3 or 4 times a week. This also goes for those of us who may be "out of the running" towards the end of the season. I've seen more than one Fantasy League crumble due to apathetic owners. I'm sure I've forgot some specifics, but I'll post here if I think of anything. Any questions or suggestions regarding the 'league settings' are of course welcome. Enough chatter.
