What is a good "Pay" Fantasy Baseball Site

Postby Sun21 » Sun Feb 09, 2003 6:06 pm

usually every year i play free fantasy baseball with a bunch of friends and family through CBS Sportsline or Sandbox. But i guess both sites are charging now, so i would like to know what is a good pay league. I've looked at Sportingnews.com's "draft & trade" and it looked pretty decent at only $12.99 per team. It also offered a cash prize of $20 to the league winner. I am very interested in a cash prize for the winner of the league. Also, i 've heard ESPN is a pretty good one too.

So, for those experienced in pay leagues....it would be great if you could tell me what is a good site.

I have participated In the Espn, Sandbox, CBS Sportsline, and Yahoo leagues for over 6 years now. Espn is easily the best layout, the price is a little higher though.

ESPN overnight locking of schedules

Postby mkhan » Tue Feb 18, 2003 4:49 pm

I was going to join ESPN but they lock their schedules the night before at 12:00PT. I am used to being able to change my roster until right before the game starts for the position (Yahoo Baseball Plus).
Anyone have any suggestions?

I have always like CBS a lot. And I absolutely hated Sandbox. CDM had one a few years ago, they ran it for USA Today, that I enjoyed a lot. It uses a salary cap and daily transactions but you pay for everything.

ESPN is the only pay league I have played, but it is great. Yahoo free leagues kill me cause by the All-Star break its a mostly dead league. I played CBS last year and didnt like it at all. It had massive rosters for each team with no bench at all. If I remember correctly it also had weekly lineup changes which are the death blow in my book. I think I am going to just stick with ESPN again this year even though thier prices seem to climb even higher every year, but hey you get what you pay for.
