Fantasy Baseball!

Just gaging interest in this forum of a fantasy baseball league as it's now open on Yahoo.


Also, bonus question - anyone interested in doing a franchise league? Yahoo has a new feature of doing franchise leagues, meaning that after this year, you have the same team for next year. So if you're into prospects and such, this would be your ticket.

I run 2 leagues here; a h2h league and a points league. I will probably set up the leagues next week.

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

I played in a free league here last season for the first time. I would like to play again if one is set up.

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

Ok so I've created a Franchise League on Yahoo. I'll still do Deftone's leagues too...I'm a fantasy sports whore.

anyways the league is here
League ID: 33446
Custom League URL: http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo....dtalkfranchise
Password: franchise

The live draft is gonna be March 21 8:30pm...about a week before opening day. I know it's a long ways away but I'll send out reminders when the day gets near. And I'm open to any suggestions to tweak the league in order for it to be fun.

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

Is this like a keeper league where you have to carry over a certain number of players every year?

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

I'm into the points league, when that gets started. I was in last year's events and am looking to better my 11th place finish.

Tried to sign up but I keep getting a "league is not available" message. Is this still on? If so, I'm in.

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

Any way the draft could be a week earlier? I'd love to get in a keeper league but I don't want to set my draft with pre-rated players.

Re: Fantasy Baseball!

Yeah I can make the draft a week earlier...is that cool with everyone else. I want to keep it a Monday though cause I'm sure everyone has something to do every other day of the week and it seems like Monday nights are usually calm/dead.

Also, I want opinions and input from you guys about which rounds are to be deemed keeper rounds or if you want to draft as is, and then designate keepers.

Awesome! Thanks.

I propose we draft and designate 3-5 keepers at the end of the season. Maybe 3 hitters and 2 pitchers.
