Default 2007 Fantasy Baseball

I'm putting together a fantasy baseball league on sportsline.com and am looking to see if anyone is interested. It's a free league so the stats/setup/blah blah is not fully controllable, but it is going to be 10 teams, head-to-head, live draft (Sunday March 18), both AL/NL player pool.

PM me your email address if you want in and I'll send you the link to join. No abandoned teams!!!! You will suffer multiple contaminated batches if you are that ass who drafts a team then never checks it!!!

How much work is involved? I want to do fantasy baseball, but can't babysit a team. I'd do a structure where we updated like once a week, for example (I've only done - and damn near won - fantasy football, not baseball, so I'm clueless).

Ya, I'm interested, but I'd like to know the details. From what I understand, some baseball leagues require daily attention while others are a little more casual.

this is a weekly league - set your roster by sunday night and it's fixed for the next week. it's head-to-head, so you'd be matched up against another team. whichever team accumulated the most points (offense + pitching) gets a win. Two divisions, rankings based upon win/loss records.

i would not call it a high maintenance league by any means -should be pretty laid back!!

Sounds fun - how does the draft work?

Are there rules you can link us to that shows how scoring works?

You can count me in - I'd love to play.

Sending my PM now

I'm in.

Here's a stupid little thing; is this auto-draft or live? I honestly prefer auto, even though it's lame, since I haven't been following baseball that closely, I don't know the players all that well.

Yeah, but if it's only once a week, how is it more high maintenance than FFB?

BTW - your LOSER beer is in my car, dropping it off at the UPS place this afternoon.

Here is a link to the league rules (i'm logged in at the site so hopefully this link doesn't require that you already are signed up.....let me know if so)

http://freemeeting.1.baseball.sports.../meeting/rules

The draft is a live draft, but you can pre-rank your players and just have the computer go after them if you want or can't make it at that time. The draft is 7:00PM on Sunday, March 18.

dude - it's on. i have a decent idead as to how your draft order would go.

Duh - I see the draft answer.

Is this an all-home brewers league? We gonna do a home brew bet similar to Football?
