Hallo i am interested in setting up a 12 team league-im from the UK so would be especially interested in anyone from the UK joining or anyone from any other country that follows MLB but anywhere is fine-its free entry which i know may not appeal to a lot of people-i would play for money but then it puts me in a position of conflicting interest as regards running the league to.
Each team will draft 16 players, 9 batters (1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C, 3xOF plus one other player who can play any position u choose who will be recognized as your DH), 7 Pitchers (5 starters, 1 Reliever plus either another starter/reliever however u choose)-again this might not appeal to some having such a small roster but its something different, not to say that im not open to change if there was an overriding want for it though im particularly keen on that style.
It will be a 5x5 Roto, HRs, RBIS, Avg, Runs scored, stolen bases, Wins, ERA, WHIP, Saves, Strikeouts. There will be a "joker" category after the draft where u select a category and the points earned in that category are doubled.
I was also considering splitting the teams into 3 or 4 divisions with the top team from each section and possibly a wild card going forward into playoffs i.e 3 divisions of 4 teams, divisional winner and runner up with best record going into end of season playoffs but again im open to suggestion.
We will use slow (ish!) email draft unless we could get everyone together for a live draft, however more realistically im in favour of email draft.
I look forward to seeing if there is any interest, feel free to email me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
or reply on this thread ASAP so that we can get this thing moving letting me know a bit about urself, where u reside, how much time relistically u would have in the next couple of months in order to ensure we get through the draft etc and anything thoughts or ideas that u might have
