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 ...
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
I'm sure there is a few minor details ...
Current Roster ...
we need 4 more ..
just a recap as to where we are ..
