ideas for some leagues involving minor leaguers

Postby steaksammich » Sat Mar 27, 2010 4:06 pm

I've always liked minor league baseball and like being able to use them in fantasy baseball. I wouldn't be interested in either of the leagues I'm about to mention because I just don't have the time. The woman gets mad enough with the time I spend looking through major league rosters nevermind minor league ones! But do you think either of these leagues would be a good time?

Idea 1) Have a minor league league. Pick from any level of the minor leagues and run a typical 5X5 roto league. It's tougher to keep track of your players and get news and notes on them, plus you run the risk of losing your guys to the majors. Also you'd have to do it old school and keep track of the stats by hand.

Idea 2) A keeper league where you draft only minor league players but only their major league stats count. There's no adding or dropping during the season and you keep a large portion of your roster from year to year (10 to 15 guys maybe). It adds a lot of strategy. Do you pick the guy in the low minors with the huge ceiling knowing that you won't get any stats from him for a coule of years (or never if he just doesn't pan out) or do you take the guy who isn't as talented, but will probably get some AB's in the majors this year.

Your idea 1 is a lot of work. Doing stats by hand for players you will never see on TV. I can't see how that would hold interest.

Idea two would not hold my interest either. What is wrong with MLB Fantasy?
