Owner Needed: Sabremetric Auction Keeper Lge

Postby kamikaze801 » Sun Mar 06, 2011 9:35 pm

* 20 teams, mixed AL/NL
* eBay-style online preseason auction ends on 4 staggered dates in March
* sign minor lgers to long-term deals and build a farm system, or maximize payroll flexibility to go for the title
* limited keepers for MLBers
* team revenue is based on wins, so a low payroll team can be profitable without winning the league
* lge standings based on each team's Pythagorean W-L record (based on runs scored v runs allowed)
* runs created formula is used for hitters, while your pitching staff is judged on IP and runs allowed
* you can either take over existing team in its entirety, or start clean with a new team and maximum cap room
* we use CBSSportsline which has customizable stat reports, live scoring and chat
* $12 admin fee for CBSSportsline and webhosting for the auction site; $30 refundable deposit so you don't have to pay your team payroll up front
* $200 for 1st place, $15 for division winners, $15 penalty for division cellar-dwellers

Our league is in its 10th year. It's a good combination of fantasy and more realistic GM simulation. There's very little owner turnover and thanks to the keeper format, there is trade activity throughout the season. Feel free to email me and I'll send you an invite to the CBSSportsline page so you can see rosters and the free agent pool (it's deep, so you can contend in yr 1). I'll also attach the full rules and last year's standings.
