If so, I would recommend that everyone who has agreed to join tries to find another person to play. It can be difficult when creating a league from scratch, but it is worth the effort in the long run. All you really need is four more players. I am assuming, if this is the case, that for some of these people it might be their first experience with fantasy baseball. That is a good selling point when trying to get some extra managers. Let them know that it will be treated as a learning year for everyone. Definitely try and recruit people you know.
For instance, when we created our league not everyone knew each other, but everyone that was invited knew at least one other manager personally. And even though we all live spread out for the most part, we have all become goods friends.
Reach out to co-workers, Facebook friends (if you are on Facebook), long distance friends, etc. I am just worried if you don't get at least 10 managers everyone is going to be very underwhelmed by the experience because it is so easy.
Well we had 8 teams the previous year. are set you h2h points league daily moves and not everyone was down with that plus it was a keeper league. This yr one of the guys didn't want to play in the keeper league cuz he traded all his players that where good and he wanted to start all over again. The other player didn't pay the $25 and its among us friends and the 5 other guys don't want to start all over again because they have a stacked team so the only thing to do was make it a 6 team league there is a lot of bragging rights involved.
I have tried to recruit other friends but they say the season is to long and that it gets boring to the, so for not I am stuck with this guys. Plus none of my other friends wanted to keep the 2 teams that didn't have owners because they said the team was jacked up.
I might just stay with that league because the 5 guys that are playing don't to give up there players. But I will start a new one on the side with 10 players just in case it gets boring for the rest of the guys lol.
