It is an interesting set-up. I have never played 2 catcher leagues, FAAB leagues, or a no max. innings league. I get the FAAB but what is the thinking behind the 2 C's and no max. innings?

I'm sure I'll get an education...








but I am a quick learner. ;-)

Bringing the 2nd catcher on board stretches the rosters out a bit and it is not unusual in upper end leagues and with only 50 moves and no bench available the innings limit isn't needed.

So, I assume $0 bids are not allowed.

Looking forward to playing against some new foes and some old friends. New rules to take i to account (or ignore) - let's see what happens! :-)

I believe the last three years I have lost 2 of my top 3 players to major DL time.

Always look forward to this league!

They absolutely are allowed! For one thing, it's the only way that people can pick up players once they have spent all their FAAB money - vital if you get a late-season DL-stint for one of your team. And through the rest of the season, it's the chance you take that no one else will bid for the player you've got your eye on.

This was one of the reasons why I liked this league last year. Especially because your waiver order is only taken into consideration as a tie-breaker.
