NL Only REAL TEAM Keeper League

Postby ironman » Mon Mar 03, 2003 4:56 pm

Hello all. I just created a new free points based keeper league on Yahoo. It is NL Only. There will be 16 teams, each one representing a NL franchise. Each team will start out with a 21 man roster consisting of players from just that team (i.e. Chicago Cubs will be all Cubs to start). From then on what you do with your roster is up to you. Here's your chance to be the GM of your hometown team. Can you make the right moves to rebuild the Pirates or Brewers? Or do you think you can ride the Phillies newly formed Juggernaut to the title? Whole rosters will be kept from one year to the next, so I'm looking for smart responsible managers that will be in it for the long haul. Here's more info about the league:

Maximum Number of Teams: 16
Maximum Players on a Team: 21
Player Universe: NL
Maximum Moves: No maximum
Maximum Trades: No maximum
Scoring Type: Point-based League
Waiver Time: 2 days
Last Trade Date: Sunday, August 24
Trade Reject Time: 2 days
Maximum Games: 162
Maximum Innings: 1250
Retroactive Stats: No
Roster Changes: Daily
Starting Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, DL, DL, DL, DL

Statistical Categories (Batters):
Runs (1)
Singles (1)
Doubles (2)
Triples (3)
Home Runs (4)
Runs Batted In (1)
Stolen Bases (2)
Caught Stealing (-1)

If you would be interested in joining email me at mailto:fantasy_bastard@yahoo.com and I will give you the League ID and password to join. Teams will be chosen on a first come first serve basis. I just created this league so I'm the only one so far but I have 5-6 guys that are willing to join already. I have taken the Cubs as my team. "Why not us in '03?" :-) Remember this is a keeper league.

Also these settings aren't set in stone. If the consensus agrees changes can and will be made to the format.

Hope to see some of you there! I'll post back periodically to announce what teams will be available. ;-)

Only two teams remain now, soon to be one. All I need is a person to manage the Padres and we'll be ready to go. Again this league looks to be a lot of fun. Plus the Padres really aren't that bad. You get Klesko, Nevin, Burroughs, Kotsay, B. Lawrence, O. Perez, Eaton, Peavy, and Hoffm--.......er.....um.......Jay Witasick! :-D

Due to the huge success my NL only league was I've created an AL version of the league.

I've already had five requests that I've answered but no one has joined as of yet but I imagine the Yanks and A's will be picked up real soon. As of right now though the only team taken is the Twins by me.

One thing I failed to point out is the scoring system is now H2H and not points based like the original message specifies. Its 7x7 H2H on Yahoo. The scoring categories are:

BATTING: R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, OBP, K
PITCHING: ERA, WHIP, W, HOLDS, SV, K
