I'm looking for a league

Postby kingskipster » Tue Jan 27, 2009 5:35 pm

I would like to get into a fantasy baseball keeper league. It needs to be all-MLB, H2H, keeper, auction-style (with salary cap). I used to play at Fantasy Sports Northwest many many years ago (and even won a title once). I have not found anything like it since. Very disappointing, but hopefully someone out there can help me out. I don't want to spend too much ... hoping to keep it under $100. Winning a huge cash prize really isn't the issue for me. Please send me a PM or Yahoo IM to kingskipster.

Thanks.

FWIW ... I could start my own. Commish fee is only $149 at CBS ...

I could start a 16 team, H2H, mixed, auction-style keeper ... you only would have to pay $9. Or, if you really wanted a prize to winners. I would set the fee a bit more. Here is what I'm thinking.

First prize $100
Second prize $50
Third prize $25
The worst REFUND

That would work out to only a $20.25 each. I will eat the 25 cents. You would only pay $20 and you're in, at less than cost of fees/prizes. Would anyone be interested?

I can draw up constitution now or wait until I get 16 interested participants.

Again, not looking for anything fancy. It can be the $9 for no prizes or no more than $20 with prizes. I'm always willing to go between on these amounts.

Just a suggestion... I wouldn't give last place a refund. If you do that you'll have everyone who knows they're not finishing top 3 intentionally tanking their teams so they finish last, which would be really lame. Prizes for last place are only fun for things like March Madness pools where it's mostly luck and you have no real control over how you finish.

How about instead of a refund, you just get a free entry into the next season? That is how the FSNW leagues I was in log ago did it. It was just a nice token gesture to the team that didn't do so well. Not a refund, but you just don't have to pony up the next season.

Meh. I still don't think there should be any kind of reward for last place. You also have to consider that in a 16 team league, chances are at least one manager is gonna be a bum and go inactive at some point during the season. What do you do when someone like that finishes last? Send them a check and say "Thanks for being an A-hole!"? haha

Agree with TP - no money, no free entry for last place.
