this format is not expensive, and would keep everybody interested all season ... (thanks lo)
No' H2H' and No 'Winner Take All'.... make it fun for all.

Here is a couple of other questions that came up ...

1. Is it a straight draft or an auction?
I'd prefer auction but we will probably use Straight ... 1-12 then 12-1 ..

2. With no bench, how are free agents picked up?
actually I am leaning towards a three player bench .. though I dont like the Idea ... it would free me from having to sift thru transactions on Monday morning ..

3. Is there a free agent budget, or are the pick-ups unlimited?
if we do staright draft there will be no budget .. since it is not a keeper there would be no reasonto have prices on FA pickups anyways ... There would be no salary cap. As far as roster churnning SP ... ...Weekly Transactions should limit that greatly ....

4. Are there deadlines or restrictions on trades?
all trades can only be overturned by a Majority .. so 7 other owners .. The trading deadline will be determined but probably within a week or two of the actual trading deadline.

5. What stat service do you use?
Thinking about using Yahoo since its free ... If everybody would prefer, I know I would, we can useCustom Stat then its 214.00 per team ..

6. How is the money collected? Having not met any of the owners, I'm reluctant to send $200 to an unknown address. I saw some mention of paypal. What is that?
Pay pal is a secure form of payment ...here is the link. Paypal Otherwise we can take a quick vote once we have the teams together for a treasurer ... ;-D

7. Is this Mixed or AL/NL only
I would prefer NL only but I'll concede mixed ...
The reason is simple, you guys may be used to playing 3 sp, 2 RP and 2p. Here we have 9 P.. by using an IP limit you get away from alot of the strategy involved in pitching. If someone drafts 9 starters, an IP limit hurts this owner. The other reason you have weekly vs. daily lineups is, There is no bench, start em if ya got em..So there is no daily lineup to set..Real Roto here people .... If you have Brett Tomko starting, thats how it goes. All players play. This is real rotobaseball. 90 % of all rotoleagues play this way. Yahoo just gives 1000,s of other options

hope that helps if there is any other questions let me know ... should be a very fun league ;-D

well we have 9 ...


we need to discuss payment options...

I am leaning towards Die Hard Cubbie as treasurer..
There is a few concerns ... as far as giving out address and that sort of thing .
ideally everyone should set up a free paypal account ... (link above) ...and it would make transfer of funds that much easier ...

Also ... all moneys are to be paid out at the end of the season. I see no reason to write 25.00 dollar checks every month ... all 'Winnings" will be payed back before the start of the 'AL/NLChampionship Series' ... ;-D

ties ... Ties will be split .. (IE) .. two people tie for monthly award of K's, and you each get 12.50 . or (IE) 3rd and 4th place tie. then that money will be combined and divided in half..

league decisions, will always be a league vote. The commish doesn't have final say so, once the main rules are set

lastly, and this is important, this is not in any way associated with the cafe. It is just 12 friends playing fantasy baseball ...

agreed ??

or thoughts???

If I wasn't in 2 other leagues and running a 3rd, I'd play. I hate having too many leagues cuz' you find yourself rooting for a guy in one league and facing him in another.

You got a solid set-up in this league and you guys should have a fun time.
