We still have a few openings in 2008 for fantasy baseball owners in the Southern Wisconsin area. We had a couple of managers decide to drop out at the end of last season. AMBL is in its 26 year with a live mixed-league draft (not an auction) in Madison, WI. We are a cumulative points type fantasy league (this is NOT a roto or H2H league - but similar to the point scoring system that was used by Bill James Fantasy Baseball and Sandbox).
We use 10 batting statistics, 10 pitching statistics and 1 fielding statistics to calculate how many points we get. We have limited keeper rules - enough to keep your best players. The teams were stacked with some very good players – A. Rod, J. Santana, Sabathia, D. Ortiz, Pujols, Utley, Reyes, Hamels and Verlander, Zimmerman, Delmon Young, Beckett and Dice-K - so you won’t be starting from nothing.
Our point scoring system is:
Batting – R-1, H-1, 2B-1, 3B-2, HR-2, RBI-1, SB-1, CS- minus 1, BB-0.5, K-minus 0.5, E- minus 1
Pitching – W-5, L-minus 2.5, Sv-5, BS-minus 2, CG-2.5, IP-1.5, H-minus 0.5, ER-minus 0.5, BB-minus 0.5, K-0.5
This year's draft is Saturday, March 29, 2007 in Madison, WI. You must attend the draft to participate in the league. $50-$55 yearly fee to pay for online stat service and year-end/weekly payouts.
If interested e-mail me and I'll e-mail copies of our rules, rosters and standings from last year.
