I'm in three...

2 Cafe Leagues
1 league with friends (I should clarify non-cafe friends...I don't want to offend anyone. :-b ).

Just one this year; more than 2 is too many. I barely had time to check my rosters, much less keep up with who I should be scouting.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

5. Two money, two cafe, one long time keeper. I said I'd only do 3 this year, but at the last moment I joined two more! Naturally, the 2 cafe leagues that I joined at the last moment I am struggling in.... :-b

I'm in 3.

20 team dynasty (3rd year) - I am the most attached to this one, as I've put the most mental energy into it (and been the most suckful at.) It has taught me an incredible amount about fb.
16 team contracts dynasty (2nd year) - Amazing team, should be top two this year.Currently 2nd.
12 team deeper rosters cafe league. - Really enjoy this one, I had forgotten how enjoyable single year leagues are. Good group of guys to compete and banter with ;-D .

I'm in three this year, and that's perfect for me. But anything more just becomes too much of a hassle, and plus, you don't really care as much about each individual league that you're in, which is part of the fun of fantasy baseball.

Over the last few years I've settled in at 2 leagues per annum, with differing setups.
1 16-team $ H2H, eight years running with buddies
1 Cafe 12-team 5x5 roto with virtual buddies

Since I suffer from a syndrome called "a life," I prefer quality over quantity.

I have 3 Yahoo leagues, 2 ESPN leagues, 1 on CBS Sportsline and 1 on the MLB web site. Quite frankly I hate Yahoo's web site and I don't think I'll play there next year. The fact that you have to pay for live scoring (free in all my other leagues) combined with the practically non-existent probable pitcher indicator and their inability to get recently called up players into the free agent pool is such a major turn-off.
