You should see some links to "Sign up now!" or "Get a team now" or something.

You'll see advertisements for "Fantasy Baseball PLUS!" but we're doing the free version --- it's usually below the PLUS! stuff and in much less distinct font.

Does the link above not work?

If you ware going to post info about your league, please note if it's a live draft or not, and what day that draft will occur.

Yikes, your draft time sucks Toad.

I'll sign up, but I'll probably have to either take the day off of work, or I'll just have to prerank players.

Oh the draft time can easily be changed --- does a Sunday at like 1:00 EST sound better?

My view is any weekend time is better, because you are likely to get more participants involved with the draft.

Don't let me be the only one here to get you to switch it. If people like the day, then stick with it. It's just my experience that when it's done during the week, people tend to not have the time around work and school and such to schedule it in.

I tried to get a weekend time; best I could get was next Sunday at 11:45am EST. That's equally as shitty.

Have no fear! Yahoo will add some more draft times in the next few days, so we'll change it then. Sorry!

Toad, try going back to the commisioner's tools and change the draft time. When I first created a league I was only able to choose a really shitty time slot like 3/10/05 8:30 AM. But when you go back to change the draft time again, practically every date is open then.
