--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am going to start a new leauge this season and have a few qusetions.

I would like to start a H2H 5X5 Leauge with Daily roster updates instead of weekly. [b]Does anybody know if I can do this and on what free site I could use, Like CBS, Yahoo, or ESPN or any others?

Also I am trying to decide what the best roster format would be. Im think something like this.
C:1 1B:1 2b:1 3b:1 SS:1 OF:4 or 5 Ut/Dh:1 MI:1 CI:1 SP:5 RP:2 P:1
With six bench players with what ever position you want.

Is this a good system any thoughts?


Also for a free public leauge and based on the rosters what do you think the size of the leauge should be? Im think of either 10 or 12.

This is my first year of trying fantasy Baseball and would like to have a serious leauge but also have a good time in the process.
Thank you very much for all comments

1) You can do it on Yahoo ... daily or weekly.

2) Get rid of your MI and CI and add some pitchers. You listed 20 players per roster. If you have 12 teams, you should have more players so your free agent pool is not as deep. Try 28 players ... 18 players and 10 pitchers. Of the 10 pitchers, try this: 1 SP, 1 RP, 4 "Any" pitchers, and 4 bench. It worked for me last season.

3) No more than 12 teams. Any less than that and the free agent pool is too big.

Hope your league goes well! ;-D

As it's your 1st year, I'd suggest joining another league as well, so you can have one where you don't have to worry about running it, but just have fun experimenting!

There are loads of leagues advertised in the Classifields Forum, so hunt around there and I'm sure you'll find one that suits your needs!

Here's a suggested setup for a 5x5, H2H league:

Roster positions:
• C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util
• SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P
• Five bench (BN) spots
• Two DL spots (* very important)

With this setup, you would be drafting 21 players (9 offense, 7 pitchers, and 5 of whatever you like).

Make sure you allow at least one, but preferrably two, spots on the DL. Someone on your team will inevitably get hurt, and it's nice to be able to put that player somewhere for safe keeping.

Set the minimum number of innings pitched in a week to 7.

Put a limit on the number of moves. Since this is your first league, I would suggest putting the number at something high, maybe in the 60-70 range. Set the limit for trades to 10, and let the league vote on trades with a 2-day reject time.

I would recommend starting a new league with 10 teams, not 12. Twelve-team leagues get kinda deep and ridiculous, although a limit on transactions would make that a little more manageable.

And one final suggestion: If you do create a 10-team league, set the trade deadline to the last day (it will be a Sunday) of the second series against the last team you play twice. Last year this date was August 6.

Have fun!
