« on: February 6, 2008, 10:16 PM »
I saw it, so I set it up.  I gots no problemo deferring comissionership though, so just speaks up if you likes.


League Name: Jedidefender
League ID: 18479
Password: berry

All settings are the same as last year.  Complain if you will.

Draft is set for March 6th or something, latest Wednesday with an 8:30 Central starting time for the draft.  I'll keep checking for later dates but there wasn't anything other than 5 pm or 10 pm available on subsequent Wed/Thurs/Tues.

I'll sign up... I need something to take my mind off of my abysmal Hockey and Basketball teams.

How does the Baseball pool compare to the Hockey one, in terms of how it works?  I've never taken part in the baseball one, but if it's not too confusing ::) for me, I may join in.

We've run it rotisserie style, one set of points for HR, BA, Hits, Stolen Bases, .ERA, Strike outs, WHIP, and Wins.


Although I'd like to discuss what options we have to evolve that this year...

I'm back to defend my Championship...

A couple of things...

I'd like to see maybe one or two more bench spots
Or one more bench spot and 2 IR spots

Everything else is A-OK with me

We don't use "hits," and add "RBI" and "Runs" to the offensive categories, and also add "saves" to the pitching.

I'd like to add 1-2 bench and 1 more DL spots also.

I like the DL spots (2) and 1 more bench spot.

I don't like seeing people penalized for IR stuff so you should be able to replace those players that are hurt.  I'm ok with one more bench spot but I think 2 is too many as guys just store players on their roster.  I think the 2 DL spots makes up for the need for too many more bench spots so I'm suggesting just one more bench spot. 

Jesse,
You could easily join the league.  I really don't follow baseball all that much other that what I've learned playing fantasy.  In three years I've finished 3rd, 1st and 2nd.  You certainly can't do a draft any worse than I did last year.

New Draft date and time:

Draft Time: Wed Mar 12 8:30pm CDT

The 19th is the last Wednesday and 9 PM is open.  Is that too late for the east coasters?

And I added one more bench slot plus two DL slots.

I've heard the term before, but don't know what it means.   :-[

My lame description means you get points for where you're standing in each category.  To use hockey for example there are 8 teams.  If your team has the most goals you get 8 points, person with the least goals gets 1 point.  Same goes for assists and every other category.  So it depends on how you rank in the individual categories.  To win you need a well balanced team that doesn't have any gaping holes. 

Hockey is different because we run it solely on point values assigned, but we could set it up as a rotisserie league. 

Does that help?

Yeah, it does help, thanks Brent.

I'll join in through Yahoo right now.  At least I should be an easy player for you guys to beat.  ;)

Changed the draft time, again.  They opened up the last Wednesday night times, so the new draft date and time is:


Wed Mar 19 8:30pm CDT

That'll be the last time I change things.  We're at four players signed up, it would be nice to have a minimum of eight and we can accomodate a maximum of 12.  Anyone else interested?

Oh yeah, I knew that.


And I'm all signed up.
