$40 League Entry Fee needs to paid to me by Tuesday, Feb. 25 via paypal. Once in the league, you will pay your entry fee via paypal by Tuesday, Feb. 25. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to play.
The draft will be an extended slow draft starting Tuesday Feb. 26 You will have up to 33 hours for each pick. The CBS site will automatically send you an e-mail to notify that it's your turn to pick. You could then sign into CBS and make your selection. If you have a spam blocker in your e-mail you may not get the notices to draft. If this is the case, just tell me and I can e-mail when it's your turn so you do not miss your draft choice.
With 20 people in the draft, if you are next to draft, or only a few picks away, please set up a draft queue and click on auto pilot so that when the person before you drafts it will automatically draft for you too.
If we do not finish the draft by the start of the baseball season, there will be one night right before the season where the draft will change to a fast live draft with 60 seconds for each pick.
All but $80 cbs league fees will be paid back to winners.
There will be small weekly winnings $2 first, $1 second and during 4 or 5 weeks in late August/early September there will be weekly winnings of $4 first, $2 second, $1 third.

The top 5 teams who move up the standings the most after the all-star break will win bonuses of $10, $8, $6, $4, $2. The tiebreaker will be most roto points gained from after the all-star break.

You will be allowed between 0-3 keepers each year. You can keep any player, but you will lose a draft pick 2 rounds higher in the following years draft. Any player kept will be worth at least a 9th round draft pick, so if you choose to keep somebody you drafted in round 11 or later or a waiver pick up, you will lose a 9th round pick the following year. Each following year, if you choose to keep the same player, you lose a draft pick 2 rounds higher. Any player drafted in the first 2 rounds cannot be kept any year.
For example, your 4th round pick the first year can be kept the second year in place of a 2nd round pick. The following year, that player cannot be kept again since he cannot move up 2 rounds again.
You will also be allowed to the following years draft picks for other draft picks or players. If you make any trade that involves losing a draft pick, you must pay next year's entry fee at the time of the trade.
Currently I have received payment from 17 teams. The league will start drafting tomororw with between 17 and 20 teams.
