    Smile Fantasy Baseball

    Alright, this thread is to help in the formation and planning of a Yahoo fantasy baseball league. I was told by eestlinc that sign-ups begin next week, but I'm getting highly impatient, and finding people that'd like to play this early allows us for more time to plan everything out.

    First thing's first: If you want to join the league, by all means! We had a very successful 10-team league last year, which Del Murder laid claim as champion to. I'm sure no one would mind 12 or 14 teams, if we were to find that many interested parties.

    Second thing: How would we score the league? Last year, we kept track of nearly everything imaginable, and it made things a lot more interesting than with just the Yahoo default. If there's anything everyone'd like to add or subtract, though, that's what this is for.

    Third thing: Scheduling a draft. Yeah, I'd like to do a live draft, if everyone was up to it, but it'd be a little later in the morning than 6 AM for us West Coast people. With so much time to plan, it allows everyone involved to hit upon an agreed draft date and time.

    Soooo. . . yeah. Anyone who wants in, just post up and let us know. Everyone that's everyone can join, so don't be shy!

    I did like having a lot of categories as well, though some were redundant like innings pitched and K/9. Does anyone remember all the categories from last year?

    I can't remember all of 'em, but we counted pretty much everything in the book except for doubles.

    All I recall is that there were twenty of them because the highest score was a 200, which Del almost achieved by the end of the year....

    I'm more than game again and this time, I'm actually going to participate in the draft and not just leave it to the computer to make my team.

    Sometime in the early evening after 6pm would work for me for a livedraft: (Eastern time).

    Take care all.

    Alright, cool, good to see the Cap'n back in action.

    6 PM EST should be alright, but we'll run it by everyone else that happens to sign up.

    That sounds good.

    By the way:
    Hits, Runs, RBI, HR, BB, AVG, OBP, Triples, Steals, Putouts, Assists, Fileding percentage for hitters

    Innings, Wins, Saves, ERA, WHIP, K, K/BB, K/9 for pitchers

    That was last year's totals. I suggest eliminating K/9 and innings and adding doubles. Maybe add holds too? That at least gives nonclosing relievers some value.

    Considering I had Kyle Farnsworth, Octavio Dotel and Brad Lidge for long periods of time last year, I'd be for that.

    I'll look into it, if it's possible.

    And it might be a dumb question, but I have to ask: Is the defending champion in?

    Sort of a silly question too:

    What exactly is a keepers league? Is there any way to create one for us? I know I'd have kept some of my players from last year if we played with keepers...

    Take care all.

    In keepers league you keep your players from last year. That's the major difference, I'm sure there are other rules based on rookies and stuff. Using the draft and getting a new team each year is one of the most fun parts though, so I wouldn't like it.

    Aha, I see, much obliged.

    Honestly, now that I think about it, I'd only keep two players, so perhaps I'll just draft them first and then create a whole new team.

    Take care all.

    I think all of us would keep Pujols, Cap.
