You are invited to join a league where many real-life aspects have been included.
This is “moneyball” at its fantasy league finest.
In this deep 20-team league with up to 40 players reserved per team, you will succeed only if you know the league beyond the top 300 players.
It’s weekly head-to-head matchups with a point system that reflects run creation and prevention, and a lot less team-influenced stats. Almost every aspect of a player’s statistical contribution to winning a baseball game is included here, not just the “famous five” stats.
You can draft players and keep them under contract for up to 6 years.
You can bid on free agents and keep them under contract for up to 2 years.
We have a salary cap and an optional luxury tax. You can play for free and try to win the prize pool without going over $178 million like most MLB teams do, or choose to be “Yankee-like” and contribute $20 to the prize pool and operate with a $198 million cap.
With the addition of salary/cap/contracts, we add the realism of the need to manage the "business of the sport", forcing us to make decisions that are dictated by the business side of the sport, rather than just the performance side. Can you field a winner and balance the books?
This league is certainly not for everyone, but if you’re looking for something different as a compliment to your more traditional setup leagues, this league will really get you in tune with what it’s like to really run a ball team.
We have a league with a lot of realistic features that are made easy to manage with a handy website.
Want to see what it’s like to manage players, contracts, salaries, major/minor league rosters? You can’t have the attention span of a gnat to be in this league, but it’s not overly complicated once you become familiar with the website either.
