SF Fantasy Baseball League 2009 - Page 4

Or we could all congregate on SF chat at an agreed upon time to discuss rules etc.
post #47 of 1312
Yes - conference call or chat room to get the rules straight. Also, I'm doing my regular league draft the weekend before the season starts (March 30 - April 1). We all gather do an auction in person and we're meeting in SF this year, so I can't do this draft that weekend. I think we should try to shoot for the previous weekend if possible. The rosters aren't totally set, but with a 12 team mixed league, we aren't digging super deep into the depth charts anyways. I just registered: Sons of Steve Garvey.

What's a taxi squad-the keepers? Personally I would prefer 2x SP, 2x RP, 6x P. Otherwise, I think the beefed up lineup is a good way to add depth to a small both-leagues league, so I'll back that.

I'm still in for money, if we can pull it off. Doesn't have to be $100--$50 still gives a nice paypal gift certificate to the top 3.

Oh, guess I should go sign up. Team name will be the mayan pots.

Edit: I'm also cool with the H2H, which is what I've been doing with my college friends for the past several years, but have a sneaking suspicion that roto scoring would keep people more involved through the season.

Anyone want to split a mlb.tv subscription? Maybe another euro-dweller?

This is big for me but I'd rather keep hitting starters to 9 including a utility player, and pitching as follows: 3SP 2CP, 3P. By having so many starters you take the element of day-to-day team management out of the equation.

Everything else seems great andrew.

I agree with the idea of limiting starters to 9.

I'm not familiar with head to head style at all - I've always played Roto scoring. Not even sure how h2h works. how often do you change opponents? isn't that an awful lot of roster management?

The roster management really isn't such a hard thing once you get into the habit of it. So long as you keep up with whats going on in baseball & who's injured, you've got nothing to worry about.

My only issue with 9 starters is that you have teams of all superstars. The bigger roster forces rewards the deep picks in the draft. Just my $.02.

It's not that I don't keep up with baseball - I waste way to much time with my other league. I've only played standard OG fantasy baseball - 23 team roster, 14 hitters, 9 pitchers, 4 x 4, roto point scoring. Are all you guys head to head guys? That seems more like fantasy football to me. I strongly urge you guys to consider playing the original style.

I agree with rotisserie being best for fantasy baseball after playing leagues both ways. Head to head makes much more sense for football with a 16 week schedule.
post #58 of 1312
Rotisserie is fine with me.

Just let me know as soon as you kids decide on rules.
