Hey guys. This is league year 5 for the league that I have on ESPN. It is a 12 team league, and I have one open spot that I need filled immediately. I was directed to this site by one of my league members, he highly recommended that I come here. All owners in the league are real baseball fans, so it is pretty competitive. There isn't much I have had to deal with from a commissioner stand point as far as shady dealings in the league. It is pretty well run.
Here are as many details as I can give...
It is a points league. The scoring system is as follows..
Singles (1B) 1 Doubles (2B) 2
Triples (3B) 3 Home Runs (HR) 5
Walks (BB) 0.5 Runs Scored (R) 1
Runs Batted In (RBI) 1.5 Stolen Bases (SB) 1
Strikeouts (K) -1 Intentional Walks (IBB) 0.5
Hit by Pitch (HBP) 0.5 Sacrifices (SAC) 0.5
Caught Stealing (CS) -1 Ground into Double Plays (GIDP) -2
Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 10
Earned Runs (ER) -1 Wins (W) 15
Losses (L) -5 Saves (SV) 5
Blown Saves (BS) -3 Strikeouts (K) 2
Hits Allowed (H) -0.5 Walks Issued (BB) -0.5
Shutouts (SO) 5 Hit Batsmen (HB) -0.5
Wild Pitches (WP) -0.5 Balks (B) -0.5
Pick Offs (PKO) 2 Holds (HD) 3
Complete Games (CG) 5 Quality Starts (QS) 3.5
No Hitters (NH) 20 Perfect Games (PG) 10
The scoring system has worked well over the past years, everyone that has been in the league has been happy with it.
It's a 25 man roster, with 18 starters and 7 bench. You are allowed 2 DL.

As far as the payouts go....
Again, it's 12 teams.
1st place $1,000
2nd place $400
3rd place $150
Whoever accrues the most points after the All-Star Game $250 (Teams winning 1st, 2nd, 3rd are excluded from this. So four different people will get at least their money back.)
Those are all the details I have to give at the moment. Someone join my league. We can discuss paying the league fee when you contact me. My biggest concern is getting someone reliable into the league, which is why my league member directed me to this site. I hope someone is able to do it. You can post here. I look forward to hearing from you, and having you join our league this year.
