What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Seeing how we're all experts here, let's start a BBTIA fantasy baseball league. For the sake of time, I propose we keep it a relatively simple franchise league. No money involved. This would be strictly a trash-talking and bragging rights league.
An auction draft. 6X6, 25 player roster, 3 DL spots, and 8 Minor league player slots.
position categories:, R, RBI, HR,OBP, OPS,SBPitcher categores: QS, ERA, WHIP, K, Saves, Holds
MIght want to tweak the stats some but you get the general idea. The main things I want to avoid are avoiding useless stats, wins, avg.... and (B) reduce the likelihood of punting strategies. I can't think of a way of totally eliminating a punt-SB stategy without giving SBs too much weight in the score, so it's a viable option, but a zero-ranking in SBs might lose you the title as well.
I made the roster # fairly high, as to keep a prospect who's on the 25 man roster, but not getting enough playing time, or you can keep it to maintain a few platoons going at certain positions.Trades either at discretion of commish or league vote.
End of year Minor league slot players carry over to the next year as keepers automatically unless owner drops the player at the end of the season.
On the regular roster, there are 6 keepers. We might want some sort of system by where a guy can't get a future breakout keeper at $1 and hold onto him for the next decade at that price. We might need to add some sort of inflation tax for keepers who are under a certain dollar amount, where there price goes up every year, like arbitration in real baseball.
IF we can get 12 guys who'll commit to a long term league, I say let's do it. Either online draft or meet somewhere here in DFW.
I'll play as long as it isn't for $$$, or costs $$$ to register. I'm already in a couple of keeper leagues but I can always take one another.
I prefer yahoo if possible.
Sounds good I'm in.
I'm back and I am in.
I'm all for it.
The biggest question is, do we want to mess with the addded complexity of minor leaguers and keepers? A straight up no-keeper auction league is by far the easiest thing to do, plus I'm figuring everyone here already has at least 1 long-running league, so it's a lower time-investment, just for kicks kind of thing.
I definitely want to keep this Yahoo compatible, and not use some complex system that costs $.
What I'll do is, draw up a sort of constitution on what a slightly complex franchise league would look like, and if we can find 12 who'll commit to that, well go for it.
If not, a simple no-keeper 6x6 rotisserie league is a fairly turn-key league, with the only real question being , how are trades approved.
Does anyone know if Yahoo allows reserved slots for Minor leaguers? If not, we can do that part of-the-books so to speak.
I don't think yahoo has the capability of having minor leaguers - only draft picks. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's right.
