I just created a league on yahoo hoping to get it filled by us Playgrounders. Let me know if you want in. Obviously the draft time can be changed to accommodate the majority (hopefully all). Season starts March 28 so I'd like the draft done at least a few days in advance. Each team has 20 players. I hate roto leagues so its H2H. Also, have your team name the same as your PG ID.

I'm limiting myself to one Fantasy Baseball team this year. If Kpro's keeper league doesn't end up panning out, I'll give this one a shot if there are spots available if/when the time comes.

I don't know about 16 teams, lot of potential for managers quiting early and I hate that.

I'm also waiting for the Kpro's keeper to be re-opened and the other playground league (Achilles?).

I'll join if you need people but if I see managers not taking care of their team I'll turn into one of them, takes away all the fun.

i have it at 16 thinking there would be sufficient interest from the PG. It doesn't mean that it has to be that much...12 teams can work just fine

I'm down if it's between 10-12 teams, if there is that many more people just create a 2nd league. I'd join both.

Man, I would love to join, the draft time works perfectly for me.... I've never done fantasy baseball before though, and it seems a tad overwhelming. MMA Playground is the only fantasy site or sport I have participated in.

Let me see if I get the gist of it: you draft your players. You then make up your roster based on who you think will have the best statistical performances that day?

And then Team vs. Team scoring... Is it Rabi's PG style, playing against a different, random team every day? More baseball style, 2-4 game head to head series? Something different?

You pretty much nailed, you play the same person/team for a week.

yeah that is pretty much it. each matchup lasts 7 days, unless specified (like week 1 will run March 28-April 7)...so from Monday to Sunday it would be you vs me, then next week its you vs Shawn, etc. We have 16 scoring stats, 8 for hitters and 8 for pitchers....you wanna win as many of them each week as you can. So drafting nothing but pitchers for the first 8 rounds isnt really a good strategy for example because you will get owned in almost every hitting stat every week.

About the scoring;

I vote for removing the Strikeouts from the batters and the HomeRuns from the pitchers


also...maybe

change a DL spot for a BN and delete another DL ?

too much hospital room

Agreed. An extra BN spots trumps the extra DL spot, imo.
