Unique 15-tm (2 MLB franchises ea) deep dynasty needs owners

Postby scotty.ballgame » Sun Aug 04, 2013 11:09 pm

Hey all. We're in our inaugural season of this 15 team, 6x6 Roto, deep dynasty league called Diamond Duos. It's a unique concept we came up with back in January. (details below) We're using ProBoards and Fantrax, with LeagueSafe for payment. I just found out we have 3 owners who aren't going to be returning next season and I'd like to find some great, active replacement owners sooner than later. We have a lot coming up as soon as the season ends, and I want to make sure we have some good new people in place. We're looking at a 1st Year Players Draft, identifying our Restricted Free Agents, placing Franchise and Prospect tags, opening trading, and then a free agent contract offering period among other activities.

I just recently renewed our Premium Fantrax Commissioner league site "FOR LIFE." It was a great deal and I didn't want to pass on it. So now for only $15 every owner can confirm a spot for the duration of the league and our site fee's taken care of forever. Only monies I'll collect each year will be our league fee - probably $30 or so in 2014.

The 3 teams that are available right now (first-come, first-serve) are:
*Detroit Brewers - made up primarily of Tigers and Brewers, although there are some other teams' players as well. Currently 6th place out of 15.
*Pittsburgh Orioles - made up primarily of Pirates and Orioles. Currently 9th place out of 15.
*Cincinnati Twins - made up primarily of Reds and Twins. Currently 14th place out of 15.
If you're a fan of the Tigers, Brewers, Pirates, Orioles, Reds or Twins, this could be a lot of fun for you! Check out the rosters if you'd like and you can see the Majors and Minors squads as they are now:

Read rules and let me know if you'd be interested. Our board and this league is very detailed, so please read carefully. We've had a lot of discussions (mostly pre-season) on the board too.

Rosters: 40-man Majors (25 active, 15 reserve) and Minor League Farm System (max of 60 prospects).
Each owner selected 2 MLB franchises (1 AL and 1 NL) entering our first season. Up to a maximum of 15 players from each MLB franchise were kept and the remaining roster spots were filled via a bidding draft among all remaining players. We used real-life MLB contracts/salaries for the initial keepers and are currently working off of a $170M salary cap for the 40-man roster. This is scheduled to increase to $175M per team for 2014. All minor leaguers are $0 and don't count against the cap until the year following their activation, and then they're at an initial $500,000 salary for the first 3 years.

Minor league farm was initially comprised of up to 25 players per MLB franchise, for a max of 50 going into the first season. We then upped the max to 60 in-season and allow one prospect claim per month. Minor leaguers in Diamond Duos are players with less than 130 ABs, 50 IP, or 20 pitching appearances in the Majors.

Contact me via PM or email me at scotty.ballgame@comcast.net if you'd like to get in. No league application but interested parties should be ready to provide fantasy baseball experience if needed. Check us out on Twitter too. @DiamondDuos is the handle.

Actually had one other owner confirm he's not coming back. All guys that didn't want to commit the time to be an active owner in a deep, complex league. He was owner of the Cleveland Nationals squad.

I just landed replacement owners for those CLE Nationals, and we also have a new owner who's already taken over Pittsburgh Orioles. That leaves me still with 2 open teams: Detroit Brewers and Cincinnati Twins.

Let me know if you'd be interested in one of these teams. Feel free to check out our league rules and team rosters on our ProBoards. Links are above.
