Looking to join dynasty/contracts league

Postby raymania » Tue Jan 01, 2013 8:51 pm

Very active GM looking to move from a defunct league and another start up that isn't going anywhere to an active one with a committed commissioner. Seems like good commissioners are hard to find these days! Looking for 20+ teams, medium sized minor league system, contracts, yada, yada, ya. 17 years of fantasy exp.

Let me know if you have anything interesting to check out...even if it doesn't fit my exact specs. I'm somewhat open minded.

Hey, i have a dynasty league that I am starting up that has all of the in depth features you are looking for and if you look at it, it is increadibly thought out. I just copied and pasted my post below cause i am at work at dedicated is this commish; but if you are interested email me at .

Just as long as you are active, plan on playing multiple years (dynasty) and aren't already in 20 leagues I'd like you to join.

Hello! I am starting a dynasty league called the DOBL - Dynasty Owners Baseball Leauge. I missed playing in a dynasty league badly and wanted to create a league with a very professional feel of actually running a team, yet wasn't too over the top that it was impossible to impove you team from year to year and impossible to follow the rules. I believe this is one of the most planned out and organized leagues you will find.

The league features contracts, a salary cap, June amateur draft, rule 5 draft, free agency auction, and of course Minor Leagues.

I am looking for owners that are active, plan on playing each year, and understand that if your team doesn't win the first season that they will want to try to improve their team and not give up on their team.

Please check the league message board for complete rules but here are some key features:

-20 teams
- head to head
- 6x6 scoring
- $70 entry fee ($60 goes to prizes completely paid out with Leaguesafe and $10 goes to CBS site fee)
- Initial Minors draft to set minor’s rosters
- Slow message board auction to set Major’s rosters

Please take a look at the league home page and check out the set up and all of the rules. If this is the the kind of leauge you have been looking for please let me know if you would like to join.

and so...
What makes the Next Great such a U-N-I-Q-U-E
Roto Baseball League experience?

A. Deep Player Pool Penetration is rare in a mixed AL and NL League: Quality of Team Owners trumps quantity of Owners. No matter what type of league, it only takes a few stragglers to drag it down. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Too many times, however, we add owners so our league has more teams in order to achieve deeper penetration of the player pool. on Auction Day. Instead, we end up with too many unproven owners. Wouldn't you rather have thirteen great General Managers instead of 26 GMs where it is more than likely that a few will detract from your league by drafting like your sister, refuse to keep up in-season, and make putrid trades (then add insult to injury by quittting after a single season- one and done)? We'd rather have thirteen great owner-managers with double the standard Roto active player rosters, because deeper player pool penetration is paramount. Quality of Team Owners Trumps Quantity.
B. This is a league which encourages trades, promotes aggressive waiver wire maintenance, and limits streaming.
C. Play them, trade them, or risk losing them on the waiver wire. Make all healthy players active. No bench, 46 active roster slots.
D. The bane of every League’s continued health: Ghost Teams and landslide Trade Dumping after the All Star Game Break. Twenty-six weeks is a long season, but it is a lot longer when you’re stuck in the 2nd division. with little hope of getting players who are reserved and shelved by other teams even thoug the players are currently putting up counting stats. You need hope as well as a Keeper Roster to keep you active for the entire season. We especially provide hope in concrete, conceptual ways.
E. Every MLB team will win 50 games and every MLB will lose 50 games-- no matter what. It’s what they do in the remaining 62 games that matters. In our League, the Floor and Ceiling as far as points to be earned are a lot closer than ever to our feet and head at the end of the season. Being a Keeper League is great, but not when your Keeper roster makes the pennsnt race over by the All Star Game or makes your advantage too great on Auction Day. The playing field has been leveled. A good Keeper roster is still a fine thing to have; it’s just no longer the chief thing.
F. It’s unusual to find a mixed AL and NL that has this kind of penetration into the player pool on Auction Day: aprox. 79.7% of all active MLB players should be on Next Great rosters. On Auction day the Team Salary Ceiling is $520 for the double rosters, so value calculations are the same as before. In mixed leagues, any and every piece of MLB news is interesting; baseball news and analysis junkies unite in mixed leagues.
G. Role players who contribute double figures in counting category stats matter as much in our Roto as in real life. How often have bit players had a material effect on your current Roto League’s final standings? Or even been on a roster for more than a week or two? Based on experience with our Urleague (our original, earliest, primitive roto league for 26 seasons and still counting), two or three HRs here or the same number of Wins or RBI there are frequently the difference between being in the First Place or the First Division or not after the entire 26 week season. 46 active roster slots and 12 scoring categories makes the categories tighter.
H. This is a League that makes tactics and roster construction equally as important as projecting player values. In the Next Great you really are a GM who can make a difference.
I. The deep player pool penetration means that ultimately, after the newness of the experience wears off, it will dawn on owners that trading can change your fortune when big sticks or ace hurlers are not in the free agent pool. Our Urleague had over 70 trades just in 2012.
J. eBay style Twitter bidding makes the twice/weekly transactions easily accessible from anywhere with a short 15 minute window for bidding each of the 2 nights.
K. Blind Vickery FAAB Bidding for players waived by Next Great teams.
L. Priority in transaction rounds 2, 3, and 4 on Wednesday nights is based on reverse order of standings AND all nominations and bids are in real time and transparent via Tweet Bids- all within a 15 minute window.
M. Per week: two exception moves, unlimited natural moves, one waiver claim, and limitless reserved DL players.
N. Teams that continue to apply themselves will be able to find potential Keeper bargains during the August Dog Days Salary Specials.
O. Teams who have fought the good fight and are in a pennant race will not see their efforts derailed by the kind of trade dumping that fans should not tolerate in The Show.
P. We readily concede we don’t use cutting edge sabermetric stats as league scoring categories. This allows anyone and everyone to easily figure on the back of an envelope from the box score the net effect of a single game on their Roto team. Instead, competitive teams in Next Great use their own skilled analysis of the game’s internal numbers to predict playing time, role, and future impact on our 12 categories/external stats.
Q. And most Leagues that do have advanced sabermetric categories don’t have them set up in opposition to one another, making for more tactical decisions. In the Next Great you need both IP and Ks which you must balance against ERA and WHIP. You need BA, yet you need PA too. These are not easy decisions when so many categories are so tight at the end of the season.
R. In the post-PED endemic injuries era, even though all other non-trade moves are limited to two days per week, activating a reserved player by 9 p.m. any night is effective the next day.
S. Again, no bench. Our league is for GMs, not daily mangers. We encourage trades, promote aggressive waiver wire maintenance, and limit streaming.
T. Player contracts for 2 years + Topper Rights. Dynasty/Keeper League- max 15 on Freeze Roster, including Toppers. Just like Free Agency in The Show, you can keep a player on your team forever if you’re willing to pay one dollar more than the market every 3rd season.
U. On Auction Day to offer an angle on angle strategy for those clairvoyants inclined to indulge their mystical talents: Anyone alive is NOW available for purchase, should you choose to spend part of your $520 salary cap in that manner. For instance, you can buy a kid in the minors or in college or Japan or even the Korean League. You can later keep him on your Freeze Roster, but if he is not on an MLB roster on the following Auction Day, then he is automatically dropped back into the Auction Free Agent Pool.
V. Swing Man Roster slot instead of 4th catcher provides roster flexibility.
W. $20+ DL = REDEMPTION: If a player is bought for at least $20 in the current season’s Auction AND subsequent to Auction Day is placed on a major league Disabled List his Next Great team may release him before he is activated by his MLB team and redeem a portion of his current salary as an in-season FAAB Bonus.
X. Our single on-line Off-season Trading party on the eve of Freeze rosters promotes off-season trading.
Y. Our $10 fee makes it possible for most people to enjoy 12 months of fun and our lack of a cash prize consistently dissuades money-grubbing cheaters, while the Next Great will be the most challenging league you ever play in. Bar none…

We have a 12yo Dynasty League that gets an opening every couple of seasons. This year we are looking for a franchise owner to replace one of the original owners. I have played fantasy baseball for 30 years and this is by far the most competitive league that I have ever played in. Deep Minor League rosters, tremendously knowledgeable owners with visions for running their franchise, league stability and active trade markets. Email Annual league fees $200.

Yikes, the sharks are circling. If you are dedicated then I would be interested in talking with you. Here is a link to an article I did on our blog about 2 weeks ago that is a good read about our core concepts. I figure if you are as dedicated as you say you will give it a read. Something tells me you will like what you read. :-)

Feel free to give me a call,
