Experienced Owner Seeks Active Keeper League

Postby NY Knights » Sat Jan 31, 2009 4:52 pm

Hello to All - This will be my 23rd year in roto (that's right, I go back to the days before the internet, when we kept our stats manually)! I'm an active owner, cheerful, and I like to trade.

I'm flexible, but ideally I'm looking for a roto/points league, mixed, Yahoo preferred, 5x5 OK but 6x6 (Holds and TB, OBP, or OPS) preferred, standard live online draft (not auction), at least 12 teams but I'll do more, where we get to keep anywhere from 3 up to maybe 8 guys. I like some continuity from year to year, but I'm not interested in dynasty. I'll participate in a startup, or take over an existing team. I'm ready to draft.

Probably the most important thing to me is that the owners are active, play to win, and expect to stick around for a long time. Nothing worse than a league with dead teams, owners who can't be reached or don't respond to emails or trade offers, and inactive owners that need to be replaced in the offseason. I think everybody can agree that you have the most fun when all the owners are active, competitive, and have a sense of humor!

Respond here, attach a link if you have one, or send me a note. Good luck this season!

We are an AL only contract auction league run on Rotowire and we need a good GM to replace someone who has not shown up with his keepers even though the due date has passed.

Right now out timetable is like this: (running late – as a replacement has gone AWOL)

Jan 29th - =minor and major league keepers due
Feb 1st – minor league draft starting

We have not agreed on an auction date but it will be before March 8th, most likely on a Sunday after 3:00 PM EST.

Here are the league boards: http://prbl.proboards.com/index.cgi

If you want to see the Rotowire site you will need to signup for a free rotowire account at rotowire.com. Once you have done that I can add you as a second GM.

The cost is $10 to cover the Rotowire stat service.

Paul,

The league I run fits what you've described perfectly. It's on ESPN, mostly because Yahoo's free service can't handle the custom setup of the league, but I've come to like ESPN better than Yahoo, which I used for a long time. Everything else is what you're looking for. The managers are all very savvy and active, I think you'd fit in perfectly. Hopefully you like one of the teams that are still available...

Let me know if you're interested. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I'll check them out. I'm still looking for a points league though, rather than H2H.

Anybody else out there?

Oh, my bad, I missed that... I'm more of a roto guy myself but you'll see why that league is H2H, because it's more like real life with actual teams going against each other, i.e. Duke vs. North Carolina, Texas vs. Oklahoma, etc. It's pretty cool.
