Are you a dedicated fantasy baseball manager?

Postby killercars » Tue Jan 13, 2009 2:41 pm


Are you a dedicated fantasy baseball manager looking to tackle a real challenge?

The Black Diamond League is currently taking applications to fill an open managerial position. What is the challenge, you ask? A veteran of the league has decided to "hang 'em up", leaving a team without a leader. There are many key building blocks already in place to maintain this South Division contender. Do you think you're savvy enough to put this team over the top.

What are the league details?
The BDL is a 16-team/four division league with 28-man MLB rosters & 20-man MiLB rosters that is hosted on CBS Sportsline. We play head-to-head using standard 5X5 scoring categories. The league champion is decided via playoffs every September. For a more detailed look at the league's rules and policies, feel free to browse our rulebook here. There have been small rule changes this offseason, but nothing major.

Would I fit in playing in the BDL?
If you're a fun person who enjoys friendly, yet serious, competition, talking smack, socializing, and generally having a good time, you'll fit in nicely with the folks in the BDL. We run a league message board forum year-round, and while not everyone hangs around in the offseason, many of us do. It's accurate to describe the BDL as a social league. If you are interested in making some new friends and chatting on a daily basis with some good guys, you'll enjoy our league.

I've been talked into joining crappy leagues before. How do I know the BDL is a quality league?
The BDL is run by extremely dedicated dual commissioners; therefore, the league's foundation is rock-solid. As is demonstrated by our website, we keep detailed records of each team and overall league achievements, including the annual awarding of a most valuable manager. If your application is accepted, you'll be stepping into a quality atmosphere few other leagues can match.

What about league fees?
Currently, no league fees are charged. I cannot guarantee this will always remain the case, but as of right now, this is a free league.

Well, there you have it. Plenty to work with if your the right person for the job. If this is something you're interested in, shoot me an email and I'll send a questionnaire application your way. If accepted, you will enter the league around late-January. If you wish to expedite the application process, use our online form found here:

Thanks in advance for any interest.

I don't particularly like dynasty leagues, but you did such an excellent job describing what your league is all about and your web site is so outstanding, that I almost overlooked my dislike. Unfortunately it's best that I don't apply because of my negative feelings towards dynasty. I'm disappointed that it's not a keeper or redraft, but whoever you take in will have a great time I am sure. Good luck. ;-D
