$250 12-Team 5x5 Yahoo League (100% Payback - 1 SPOT LEFT)

Hey guys. I've been running a $100 fantasy baseball league on Yahoo for over ten years now, and I've decided to transition into more of a mid-stakes league this year with a $250 entry fee. The upgrade in price has turned a few previous owners away, so I'm currently looking for a few good men (and/or women) to play in a very organized, fun and competitive league. I will be using LeagueSafe for payment collection/processing, and the payouts for the 12-team league are as follows:

1st - $1,800
2nd - $900
3rd - $300

The league website has already been established on yahoo and I've included a copy of the settings for your perusal below:

One quick note...for the first time this year, I'm going to a continuous waiver wire utilizing blind bidding ($250 FAAB), which means NO FREE AGENCY. I'm doing this protect the integrity of the league so there is no advantage gained for people who have constant access to a computer and can gain a competitive advantage as soon as someone gets injured or a new closer is annoited. We all have lives and this will make things more fair for all involved by eliminating the rush of being the first to get to a computer.

I have been running fantasy leagues for over 15 years now and I take great pride in serving as a commissioner. I'd like to think I have built up a pretty good track record and have earned a solid reputation as a commissioner, but if you don't want to take my word for it, I'd be happy to provide references to people that have played in my leagues.

As of right now, I have the tentative live online draft scheduled for Sunday, March 24 at 8:00 p.m. (EST), which is a week before the season starts. A draft order will also be randomly determined a week prior to the draft. This will be done Kentucky Derby style, in that a random selection order will be generated through the random draft order generator and this will be the selection order in which we will personally choose our draft slots.

If you feel this league appeals to you, please reply back here with any questions (or your contact information). I can also be reached personally via email at:

After the league was filled, we had one owner that had to drop out at the last minute, thus creating one open spot. Looking to fill the vacancy by this weekend. First-come, first-serve. Let me know (or email me at if interested! Information on the league is provided above. Thanks!
