I'll be starting an MMAPlayground League as soon as registration begins for Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball. Ideally, I'd like to have at least 12 teams in the league, but depending on interest, I'd be willing to have 14 (max). If you're interested in playing, reserve your spot here and I'll get the league started as soon as registration begins in early February. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I'm not "that guy". However, it's funny because there's usually one guy in each league that drafts mostly Yankees or mostly Red Sox. 9 times out of 10, "that guy" finishes near the bottom in rankings.

So, yeah...feel free to draft all Brewers.

i was in a league last year and a lot of brewers players fell, so i was able to draft them late and i took 2nd. im not sure the ryan brauns and prince fielders of the team will be slipping to me this year though. i had to make a comment based purely on you being a cubbies fan and me being a brew crew fan though.

I'm personally not a fan of Rotisserie...

As for scoring...the default Yahoo scoring will be used. I always go that route because you can never please everyone when you change the scoring.

All of this will be put to a vote among league managers once the league is full.

In a Head-to-Head League, your team will square off in a weekly matchup against another fantasy team to see who can compile the best stats across a number of different categories.

A new weekly matchup begins every Monday and will consist of a set number of games based on your league's statistical categories. Each stat category counts as one game, with the win going to the team that finishes the week with the highest total in that category (the cumulative total after each Sunday's games).

So, if in a given week, your team hits more home runs than your opponent's, you would be credited with a victory. However, if your opponent's team ended the week with more saves than your team, you would be charged with a loss. If the two teams end up tied in a given category, each will receive credit for a tied game.

This weekly win-loss total will be added to a cumulative season record, which will be used to determine standings and playoff seedings. These standings will be based on your team's overall winning percentage, which is calculated by taking your win total and adding one-half of your tie total and dividing the sum by the total number of games your team has played.

Head-to-head scoring is available in both Public and Custom Leagues. All Public Leagues use the same default settings, while Custom League commissioners will be able to specify a number of settings, including roster size and stat categories.

Actually, now that I've thought about it...

League Type (h2h or rotisserie) and scoring (default or fantasy point) will be decided on once the league is full. All managers will vote on whether they want h2h or rotisserie and whether or not to use fantasy points or the default scoring system for Yahoo.

i took a road trip last april to see the brew crew play in st louis, the new stadium is beautiful. the fans there arent a-holes either, but unfortunately my buddy got all kinds of drunk and we had to seek out other brewer fans for our protection, i didnt like the 500-2 odds that were piling up against us. im not a screaming lunatic at games(i have brewers partial season tix), and my buddy isnt usually either but enough bombay sapphire with that budweiser swill poured on top of it made him into mr hyde. i wasnt too happy by the time i dragged him from our cab into the hotel room but at least he didnt drink the next day at the game sparing me from further worries about getting my ass handed to me by an angry red mob.

Wow...I figured these spots would go rather fast. I guess there aren't as many baseball fans on here as I originally thought.

Maybe there just aren't many people on, period. Posting seems rather slow right now...

Yeah, being a babysitter always sucks.

I live about 80 miles for STL so I go to around 4 or 5 games a year. And yes, the new stadium is sweet. They did a good job with the design.

4 managers are confirmed.

We need at the very least 6 more...preferrably 8 more but no more than 10 more.

Id get in but its hard for me to do a live draft with work and other life obligations like,Xbox,Booze,Eating and Girls...Im always down for Auto Draft leagues if you can do one of those to...

Oh yeah

Pirates.......gonna win the penant this year...HAHAHAHA

Seriously hard to be a Pirates fan..We have a really nice park at PNC

Its just to bad the owners run the team like a business and not like a sports team.

That.Or since Cubs andRed Sox claimed to be jinxed...Im saying the Pirates have the "Sid Bream" Curse....After we traded him to the Braves the following year he scores the winning run agasint us the in NL championship game and since then we aint won shit.

I guess i could do a live draft it was on a saturday afternoon or so...like 3 or 4pm eastern time...
