The best thing you could really do would be finding a league through this site. Many of the people that would be participating would be cafe regulars. If you are new to fantasy baseball in general, you will learn quite a bit by just being in a league with experienced owners. You can join many sites such as CBS, ESPN, etc but the payouts are very small for the amount paid in. Their smallest team buy is $29.95/team with 10 teams in each league. The winner wins $150. This is 50% payout when many money leagues on this site are held on a free website such as Yahoo where the $30/ team would all be paid out. Not only will it give you a chance to communicate with owners (since most would be regulars on the cafe) but youd learn alot and have a chance at winning more cash.

NFBC

Postby Cherokee Nation » Sat Dec 17, 2005 10:24 pm

I play in the NFBC, which is run by Krause publications. There is no trading, which I had to get used to, but have learned that no trading is really much more fun and much more challenging.....and much more fair.

http://www.fantasybaseballchampionship.com/

The regular league cost is $ 1,250, with a $ 5,000 payout if you win your division & $ 100,000 if you beat everybody ( about 300 people ).

The also offer an Ultimate League which is a self contained division. It cost $ 5,000 and if you win your 15 team division the prize is $ 40,000

There are also significant prize $ in both leagues for 2nd and 3rd place finished, division & overall.

They also offer satellite leagues which are self contained divisions.....$ 250 division pays $ 1,900 to the winner of the 15 team division....$ 500 pays out $ 4,000 and $ 1,000 pays out $ 8,000.

The satellite leagues draft over the internet, the others draft in Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Tampa Bay

If you're looking for a safe 5 X 5 mixed non-keeper I'd highly recommend the NFBC ( National Fantasy Baseball Championship ).

If you play in the $ 1,250 league you'll be competing against Meatloaf & Chris Moneymaker ( poker guy ), among others.
