NL-BP-Indy Scoresheet League Seeks 1 Owner for Dispersal

Postby JTP42 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 1:40 am

We need one more owner for a 3-team dispersal draft in our NL-BP-Indy Scoresheet league.

If you haven't played before (and feel free to ignore this paragraph if you have), Scoresheet simulates 6-7 games each week for your team based on the previous week's stats. You set a 30-man lineup each Thursday (including batting order, pitching rotation, bench players, full bullpens, and even defensive subs), and on the following Thursday, the simulation engine generates standard box scores for your team (e.g. score sheets) by combining your lineup choices with each player's stats from the week, along with established defensive ratings and platoon splits. At the conclusion of the regular season, the division winners and a wild card team then play two rounds of playoff series.

SI's Will Carroll founded this 12-team league nine years ago as a way to introduce Baseball Prospectus readers to Scoresheet. Five of the original twelve owners remain very active, as do a couple of the second-year recruits.

More importantly, you can keep key players essentially forever, letting you truly build a franchise - we still own three of our initial selections from 2003 (Pujols, Peavy, & C.Zambrano).

While there's no prize pool, the league champion receive a shiny trophy, recognition on our league site, and the enduring respect of fellow owners. This year, Scoresheet also offers new owners a special introductory price of only $29 (the normal annual fee is $79).

Unlike most Scoresheet leagues, which draft from lists with no direct owner interaction, we hold a live 35-round online draft shortly before the start of the season. Teams use the first 13 rounds to keep veterans (no contracts) and also have the option to keep as many as a dozen or more rookies with their late-round picks (For example, teams with six rookie keepers would forfeit their round 30-35 picks). The league usually holds three four-round supplemental drafts about every six weeks during the season (via the league chatroom) to allocate players traded into the league from the AL, June draftees, injury replacements, etc.

We currently need one more owner for 2012, and you would participate in a dispersal draft involving the players on teams 4, 9, & 11. One of these teams is a perennial playoff contender formerly run by a founding owner who departed for family reasons, and the two others also include an impressive cache of potential keepers.

Given the wealth of available talent, including stars like Sabathia, Hamels, Cain, Kennedy, Teixeira, Adrian Beltre, and young studs like Brett Lawrie and Julio Teheran, your team easily could be an immediate contender with 13 strong keepers and a few promising rookies.

If BP-Indy sounds appealing to you, please e-mail us (jtp at rotohelp com), and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about Scoresheet or the league, as well as provide some links with more information about the league.

I might be interested but I am fairly ignorant about the format. I'm experienced in rotisserie and usually play in Nl only leagues. What is NL-BP-Indy and by live auction is it live in person? I probably won't be able to do that unless it's it Central Texas

Ken,

Scoresheet simulates baseball games each week using the previous week's stats, so you compete head-to-head against the other teams in your league and then hopefully enjoy a postseason series or two if you earn a playoff berth. For each week, you set your team's lineup, pinch-hitters, defensive subs, pitching rotation, and bullpen order, acting as both your team's manager and GM.

In many ways, Scoresheet is like a normal simulation game (e.g. Diamond Mind, etc.), except for the benefit of using current-season stats to provide you with weekly game results, player statistics, and updated standings.

NL-BP-Indy is the name of our league, and while the league drafts only players currently in the NL, we do allow each team the option to keep a couple of currently-rostered players that switch leagues in the winter.

While we held the league's first few drafts at a restaurant in Indianapolis, due to owner migration, we now conduct all our drafts via a dedicated league chatroom with current owners ranging from Indy and Chicago all the way to Texas and Hong Kong.

For additional details and a few links with more information, please contact us via email (jtp@rotohelp com).
