I'm going to start a brand-new 14-team dynasty league next spring. We need at least 10 new owners. The fee will be $20 annually. We'll be using Fanball as our stats service...it's cheap and we don't want to waste money on the expensive sites. The winner will receive an engraved crystal trophy and some cash. The top three spots will pay out. Roughly estimating $70 for Fanball and $40 for the trophy, that would leave about $170 to split between the top three. Let's figure it will be $100 and the trophy for first, $50 for second and your money back for third.
It will be 5x5 roto style with OBP, runs, rbi, steals, hr, era, whip, saves, strikeouts and wins.
30 man rosters. Lifetime keeper rights. You may draft major or minor leaguers. Standard position requirements. 10 games played this year, 20 last year. 23 standard active lineup spots. Each week, you may add or drop one player based on reverse order of the standings. Trade deadline will be July 31. Trading will resume on Thanksgiving. Add/drops will only take place during the regular season.
Here's the tricky part. I want ONLY active owners. I don't care if you're new to the hobby, but you must be engaged. I have had trouble with owners that never respond to emails or trade offers. If you check email twice a week, we aren't looking for you.
I have three excellent owners already lined up. But I need more and I know you guys are fanatics. If you've ever made a trade on Christmas morning (like I have), you are our kind of player.
If you're interested, send me a PM. Hope to hear from many of you.
And in case you were wondering, YES, there's a reason I posted this on Thanksgiving
. If you're reading this today, you're probably the kind of player we want. Have a good Turkey Day!
