DTSL Fantasy Baseball

I'm not sure how many of past DTSLers are checking the DTSL thread any more so I thought I would throw this out in main forum.

I tried to get a Yahoo Fantasy Baseball league started at the beginning of the MLB season and failed horribly so I want to start a Mid-season league, when they become available.

Keep an eye on this thread as I'll post more when it looks like I can get a league ready. This league will be Head-to-head and I would like to get 10 (maybe 12) teams in the league. The DTSL league was a blast last season and I want to get one going again because I'm currently wasting the $10 I spent on StatTracker this season.

So, Idgie, twikoff, DarkElf, Y2K, Copie, Lat, Fleegs, Where, Smith, etc. join up when the time comes!

You know I'm in. Gaining 2 points on the leader in rottisserie but being mathematically impossible to gain much more after a while just doesn't have the same punch as getting on a hot streak and getting a W against the league leader in any given H2H week.

You've probably seen (and ignored) the numerous DVD Talk Smallball League threads over the last few years, including the current one still on page one of Sports Talk at 4,100+ replies. Though he's encouraging current and former players in that league, I'd rather have a full active league than 5-6 DTSL only teams. (though commish may have other ideas)

With it being a half season league, I'm hoping that everyone who joins will remain active (or suffer the wrath of my generally anemic bats).

I was just calling out DTSLers since those are pretty much the only people I know here at DVDTalk .....

The league is open to everyone since I'm sure there's plenty of people out there that would love to beat Y2K each and every week.

I hate fantasy baseball. That's an everyday thing and it ends up being like a chore. Thanks, though, Nicky.

Fine. I guess Y2K will have to be the league whipping boy now.

Well, a league that only I am in is one I could certainly win...

But you seem to be letting other people besides me in.




Besides, I hear the Commish of this league is an _______.

Well, since we missed our draft time I rescheduled our draft for June 4th at 10:00 AM Pacific.

And just an FYI, mid-season leagues don't start play until Jun 20th so we're not missing anything by pushing the draft out.

raven,

it's not his fault the day got pushed. I called dancinns cause we only had 7 teams about 40 minutes before the draft, and you can't draft h2h with an odd number of teams. he bumped the thread, but your friend signed in at what must have been 1 minute after our authorized draft time. When nick called the league "ready" after your friend signed up, it didn't allow any draft slots today, and pretty crappy ones in the near future.

When can you make it? Or, conversely, when specifically can't you, during an "evenings/weekends" timeframe?

Is it that Saturday is bad for you? Would Sunday 6/5 be better?

I'm actually cool with it being bumped. Since games can't start until 6/20, it would suck to draft well then have 3 of your players go down with injury in the next 3 weeks...
