Best place for a serious league of cheapskates?

Postby autografik » Tue Jan 24, 2006 4:49 pm

My friends and I are trying to begin a keeper league. We already have a full set of twelve teams, but we're trying to find a free (or very cheap) site to play that also offers maximum flexibility in terms of choosing what statistics are scored, and how they are weighted. Do any exist?

We played Yahoo last year, which was fine... but I'd like to get a little more involved in the scoring system.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Are you able to be a little more clear about what you're looking for?

Do my best. I'm basically looking for a site that will allow me to set up a league (and not just join another league as a new team), and offers a flexibility in the scoring system so that the commissioner could assign different weights to each category. A quick and probably inaccurate example of that: singles could be worth 1pt, doubles 2pts, triples 3pts. Equally nice would be a site that allowed categories like BB/K9.

Basically, the most flexible league that costs $15 or less per team ... we'd like to have a bit of money left over for the pot.

Does the Stats, Inc league offer anything unique? I know they're not currently accepting new teams (or leagues, I guess). Same with sportsline — does anything actually set them apart from, say, Yahoo?

Thanks again.

I believe Yahoo is the way to go. You can set up points leagues and they have BB/K or K/9, etc. Plus it's free. If you want to get all the extra cool stuff, then go to a 'Plus' League. I think they cost around $125 or so... only $10-$12 per person... great for you cheapskates!!!

I'm pretty sure Yahoo offers stuff like that. My points league last year had some odd pts and such and it worked out pretty good. So I'd say stick with Yahoo. To me it's one of the best and it's totally free.

CBS Sportsline will let you do stuff like that for $130 per season as well.

Is CBS sportsline still using the weekly line-up system, or have they gone to a daily roster move system like yahoo?

You can do daily or weekly with CBS. The only problem I have with CBS is there is no minimum inning requirements (you could just bench your players to win ERA and WHIP)
