Welcome to year 4

Postby TheRock » Fri Feb 02, 2007 11:11 am

Hey guys, if you're reading this you found our home for the season.

Couple things we can discuss whilst awaiting the draft. We had two teams go dead last year and the rest of us agreed it would be better to get two more active owners. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's probably you because that would mean you didn't check your team after about the all-star break last year. If either of those owners show up this year and want back in I guess we'll need to decide what to do. If we do end up with a hole, I'd like to offer it to Old_Style, who we thought would be able to join us last year but we had to take his spot from him.

Also, is there anything we'd like to propose changing for this year? Setting from previous years have been std 5x5, 12 teams, snake re-draft, we play C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, UT, UT, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, with 6 bench. Someone threw out the idea of an auction last year, I'd be interested in that. Any other rules changes let's talk about them now.

Looking to start drafting about the same time, late Feb/early March. Gives us a couple weeks of ST to see how guys are doing but still enough time to get 'er done on time.

I would prefer an auction draft but i'm cool with whatever. I think it's better than having to wait for someone to make a pick.

Welcome to the cafe baseballmatic. We likely will have an opening or two, we're still waiting on some owners to check in. Toward the end of the month we will look to fill any openings and we'll consider you at that time. However, I need to be honest with you and say that we'll probably look for someone with more history here at the cafe, or someone recommended by a current league member. Our one new member so far this year is a regular cafer who we've been talking to for a year. Our one new member last year was a guy I'd played with for years. We're not a league that puts requirements on any skill level per se, but we do want to ensure we get active owners who are mostly nice guys because we do have to spend a lot of time with each other.

That said, tell us a little about your background and how you came to find us.

well i live in NC and as i said before have played fantasy baseball for 2 seasons. in my first season out of 10 people i came in 2nd and the next year with the same amount of guys i won.

i found teh cafe my first year when i was looking for mock drafts to get an idea of where players migth be going. i did not realize that there were forums open to the public until a few days ago and i decided to register.

i have played and followed baseball my whole life and i dont play anymore so this is one of the best ways i think it is to keep close to the game. i hope u can look past the fact that i just came to the cafe and give me a chance

glad to be back for another season. what are the chances of a threepeat }:-)

to be honest, i'd prefer to stick with the same draft format. if we change anything, i'd suggest adding extra active roster positions
