2012 GWJ Fantasy Baseball League Catch-All

Inaugural season!

This is pretty last minute so we'll see what kind of turn out we get. If we don't get at least 10 teams, we can either scrap the idea for next year or we can redraft perhaps Sunday night and skip the first week of the season. Yahoo will allow us to hold a draft up until April 3.

League settings are:

Scoring based on 5 batting categories (avg. / HR / RBI / Runs / SB) and 5 pitching categories (era / WHIP / K's / Saves / wins)

Head 2 Head - 2 teams face off against each other each week. Team that scores more out of the majority of those 10 categories, wins the matchup that week.

Top 6 teams make it to the playoffs which will occur the last 3 weeks of the MLB season (week 24, 25, 26).

Standard Snake Draft to be held Sunday, April 1 @ 9:00pm EST. We had to get the draft in tonight if we want the first week of the season to count (opening day is tomorrow).

Limit of 6 waiver pickups per week. No limit over the course of the season.

I think that's pretty much it. Here's the link to the Yahoo league: http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo....

send me an email to [email protected] and I will send you a league invite with the password to join the league.

I'll play your game you rogue. Also, even if this were fantasy football, no chance it would get set up in time for the same day the thread is made. We should just shoot for the weekend and have it as a given we are missing the first week.

I think you're right Jeremy. I'll have to recreate the league to change the draft date/time.

So far, 3 of us have signed up. That means we need at least 7 more folks, preferably 9 more.

If you're interested please post here and include a draft time that you can attend.

I'm good for Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday @ 9:00pm EST.

I'm still interested. I should be able to adjust my schedule to make just about any draft time.

A Sunday draft would be best for me, but I could do any.

Email Sent. Wed/Thurs or Sunday night draft is fine.

Link to new league in OP.

I'll play.

Sent out a bunch of invites. Be sure to sign up!

5 teams signed up. 5 to 7 more and we got ourselves a game!

So that's where your name came from!

I hadn't noticed that! Good catch. However my handle is from Logan's Run.

so the question for you guys: we currently have 5 teams signed up. If no more people join, do you still want to continue with the league or scrap it and try again next year?

It's head to head right? Can we even do a rotation with less than 6 or 8?

I'm excited to try FBB out regardless as I've never played before. As long as there isn't something about the team count that makes the game impossible, I'm still in.

It does need to be an even number.

6 is doable if we make the "active roster size" larger so that we aren't always just having a team full of all stars playing at all times. 5 isn't really, which is where we are now.

I'll be checking email until 5:30pm EST. If we get more players to sign up, great. If not, we can shoot for next year.

We still have 5, so I guess its a no.

Looks like the draft tonight was cancelled. Are we punting until next year or postponing for a week or two to get more teams?

I guess punt 'til next year. I'll just hype it up more next February after the Super Bowl so we have a good 2 months or so to fill up a league.

We could take a shot for a second half league, if yahoo allows for that.

Would give us an even starting line if we were right after the all-star break.

Not sure if they do second-half leagues, but I believe they allow league starts rather late into the beginning of the season.

Wish I'd seen this earlier. I'm in if you guys still want to do it

Saw this linked a bit ago from the MLB thread. Favoriting for later.

If we are going to try again for 2013, put me down.

I am in too. Going through Fantasy Sports withdrawals.

I'm in.

Alright, I'll repost a new 2013 thread and see who bites.
