I'm in only two this year, one with the old crew (money league) and one with a new crew (non-money). Last year I was with the old crew and like 5 public leagues, which got pretty lame. I'm only going to do leagues with people I know from now on, since it makes a better experience kicking your friends' asses than random strangers on the net. ;-D

For the longest time I only played in 1 league.....over the last few years I've bumped that number up to 3 or 4 a year. I felt I just couldn't pass up these leagues.....but, I hate it. I'm going back to 1 a year and "maybe" 2 but that is definately the max from this point forward! :-°

I used to be in 9 a couple of years back and found it to be too much of a drag. I planned on cutting back to 4 this year, but I joined two more at the last minute. I don't do too much tinkering with either league and so, I'd spend just 30 minutes a day combing through my rosters and that's it. Give another 30 minutes to comb through player news and that's it.

I do two keeper leagues with two sets of friends and co-workers (and a little overlap).

I used to also do two or three public leagues to test draft strategies and such, but I don't have the time. It's too bad, though, because I think these extra leagues keep you paying more attention. If your always filling different needs on different teams, you pay attention to more guys.

I've also noticed that my two teams have a lot of overlap (Utley, M-Cab, Carlos Lee, Corey Hart, Cain, McGowan). I don't even really have to check two teams now.
