    Hey fantasy sports addicts,

    Here it is. I changed a couple of settings but I think they are pretty good.

    Draft is March 19th at 3:00 pm Eastern. It is the standard snake. If you can't be there it will autodraft for you...and the computer usually does better than most people do themselves, IMO. The season begins March 31st!!

    However, if this date is a problem, send me a PM (don't type it in this thread, PLEASE), and if enough people find it inconvenient I will change it.

    @ Bill Laimbeer: I tried my best not to screw it up. I still feel bad about screwing you out of the hockey playoffs.

    I will PM anyone who signs up the details.

    Basically, I added Walks to the batting stats and Losses to the pitching stats.

    I removed the can't cut list. I'm not worried about people's integrity. Additionally, if somebody is dumb enough to cut a stud then so be it.

    Trade reject time changed from standard 2 day to 1 day. League approval.

    The settings are one each of DL, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS.

    3 Out Field, 2 Util, 5 Bench, 1 DL

    2 SP, 2 RP, 4 Pitchers. I changed minimum innings from 7 to 10

    THIS IS A DAILY LEAGUE. NOT WEEKLY.

    I think that is it. Minimum 8 people. Maximum 12.

    Oh, and PLEASE, team names. Please pick a major league baseball team name. (Phillies is already taken:)).

    Veterans...please peruse my settings and see if I screwed something up.

    If you have any concerns with the choices I made please PM me. I just don't want or need the grief of debating publicly...but I promise to take it into consideration and maybe PM a couple of people to ask their advice.

    If anyone wants to join who is new to fantasy sports or baseball, please don't be afraid to sign up. Everyone here is more than happy to help you out.

    LET'S PLAY BALL!

    Speaking of fantasy baseball, does anyone remember which team finished in 10th place in our 10-team league last year?

    Haha. Yeah, I just looked it up. Remember though, I was the champion for two years straight at one time. We were in a rebuilding stage.

    That's why I chose to be commissioner. (1) It was my turn :( and (2) The settings are fixed so that I can regain my crown.

    How come nobody is joining??? I'm getting a complex.

    You guys ever read about Tigers fantasy baseball camp?

    Looks like for $3,450, you get to practice and train in Lakeland, FL, play ten games or so and then play against Tigers legends at the end. Imagine having to try to hit an overweight Sr. Smoke.

    Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camps | tigers.com: Fan Forum

    Might be fun, or it might be a nerd fest (or both?). Tough to say.

    I haven't even been able to watch a baseball game since that ball rolled through Billy Buckner's legs.

    I'm in. I don't know anything about it so perhaps I should raise my text message allowance to 5000, Darth? You're SO going to regret talking me into this man.

    If everyone got advice from Darth, this league would be WAY to cool. Rascoe, get another trophy ready for me. :pound::pound::pound::pound:

    We got 7.

    My friend (Chicago Cubs) joined.Some of you might remember him as "Squirrels on a plane" in our hockey league.

    He plans to talk lots of doo doo.

    Everyone is asking about the league password. I hope nobody here took it personally.:pound::pound::pound::stirthepot:

    Yeah, I was wondering about bezeach. If he joins, he will say something smart arsed like "I'm in". That guy can be downright rude and at times I think he goes overboard.:MusicBigGrin:

    I just realized I took Seattle and Kim might want that name. If so, I can change.

    Ok, I'm in. I've skipped the last few leagues to give you other poor saps a chance, but my charity ends now.
