Default 2012 HBT Fantasy Baseball

Hey Everyone,

Starting up another year of our fantasy baseball. Our HBT league is going into it's third year. We have a lot of fun throughout the season.

This year, we have two open slots for new members. We need people who will follow and upkeep their team throughout the entire season. This is a weekly head-to-head, point based league. It is also a keeper league, so you'll be inheriting a team from last year from which you can choose what players (if any) you'd like to keep for the coming season.

Best of all, this is a free league. Occasionally, people will wager some beer on a weekly matchup, but it's all friendly. If anything dicey goes down, we self-police and settle things.

This year, I've asked Othon (MMTG on HBT) to be co-manager of the league with me. With a six month old at home now, I am afraid I won't be able to keep up with some of the league management responsibilities. Othon has been one of the original members, has a cool head, and is invested in the league. He's a good man, and will be a good manager.

If you're interested, post up in this thread and PM me with your name, your team name and your email address.

And, yes, it's only Valentine's Day. But real baseball fans are ready to go...

Hey! Just checked the league site.

Apparently we have 2 Red Sox fans joining now? Jeeeeeeeeez! Isn't there a rule against something like that? We should be protected from having to put up with all that!

Seriously, though....Sunday draft will probably work for me. How's that gonna work for the guy across the pond? Might be well into early Monday for him though. I'm usually free on Sunday nights unless I'm brewing.

Hey Guidry. Good to hear from you. How are things down in Louisiana?

Good point on timing of the draft. Al, we'll try to take that into consideration in planning the draft time. However, keep in mind that the rest of us are stateside.

Well I inherited quite the team and not a Red Sox player in sight!

Sunday evenings are pretty much the best possible time for me throughout the week. I am likely able to fit in many evenings but Tues-Thurs nights are out for me.

I look forward to discussing my two great loves with a league full of people who must feel similar!

Right on, Dave. I really hope those loves are baseball and brewing, otherwise this could be a very awkward season.

haha

Shakespearean Sonnets and Wine Coolers. I cannot fathom how you missed the boat so badly on that one!
