Hey guys!

Since the Fantasy Football League was a success this past year, I thought I would do a Fantasy Baseball League as well.

I have Set it up, and I would like to get at least 10 people involved, or more.

If you are interested, PM me your email address, and I will send you an invite. It will be free, and done on Yahoo!

The only requirements are that you have a Yahoo! ID, and that you use your SSG screen-name in your Team Name, so everyone knows who everyone else is.

I have it set right now to do roster changes on Mondays. I like this, because the ability to do roster changes daily gives people with more free time a tremendous advantage. Plus, this way you don't have to do it every day, you can set your lineup for the week, and be done until the next week. If everyone doesn't like this, we can change it.

I also have it set up for an autopick draft. The reason for that is, with the different people here in different time zones, I found it impossible to get more than a few people live at the same time for a live draft.

If you have ideas, or questions, let me know!

Thanks!

Sign me up.

It was snowing here last night and I was watching ESPN. They were showing spring training. Something didn't seem right.

Sorry, I was born in The Bronx and lived in Queens for 27 years. That is the squad. Been a fan since the womb spit me out.

I like the Yankees, too. Hey, being a Bills and Sabres fan, I need to follow one team that can win championships and is no threat to re-locate or go bankrupt.:D

I also follow the Blue Jays.:rolleyes:

I also hope that the competition in MLB evens out. I'd like to see different teams have a chance.

QLD

I've been a Braves fan since I was old enough to breathe.

We only need 4 more teams for 10 total. Come on, sign up guys!

Kidhuman
03-06-2003, 11:53 AM
Can we have 2 teams?

QLD
03-07-2003, 11:51 AM
No, you can't have two teams. This will be head to head, and well, that wouldn't be fair.

Surely somewhere out there, we have 4 people who are willing to play?????

Just need 4 more teams.

QLD
03-11-2003, 11:05 PM
Man, it looks like we may be stuck with 6 teams. Oh well, should still be fun.

I could possibly have non forum members join... sup to you..

Rogue II
03-12-2003, 06:28 AM
That's what we had to do with Fantasy Hockey. We still ended up with 10 teams.

Kidhuman
03-13-2003, 08:15 AM
I might be able to get one or two ppeople to join if you need. LMK.

So QLD, when's the draft?

QLD
03-14-2003, 08:57 PM
Well, I am going to set the auto draft once we have enough teams. I guess we could bring more people in, though I think I would almost rather us play with only 6 teams......

Rogue II
03-15-2003, 07:44 AM
6 teams isn't bad. We would have very deep teams and injuries won't be as much as a factor.

Kidhuman
03-15-2003, 02:27 PM
With the players that aren't drafted will they be on waivers or somewthing able to pick up if wanted or needed?

QLD
03-15-2003, 04:01 PM
Yes, if we do it that way, all the undrafted players will be on waivers, available to be picked up.

season opener is in a week right? Draft?? Im gettin all giddy... something to discuss besides war..


GO CARDINALS!!

QLD
03-19-2003, 08:51 AM
Ok, I think I am going to go ahead with just 6 teams.

I will put the draft status at ready tomorrow night, so set your draft orders NOW!!!!!

:)

Rogue II
03-19-2003, 12:02 PM
Thanks for reminding me to rank my players. I didn't agree with a few of Yahoo's rankings.

By the way, if you rank players, make sure you rank at around 100. (6 teams x 16 players/team = 96 players drafted).

Kidhuman
03-19-2003, 03:36 PM
I did about 60...after that to me it doesnt matter who I get, plus there are trades to be made. I want Hideki Matsui if ya get him. (too bad you can't call dibs or pennytax):crazed:

Kidhuman
03-20-2003, 07:30 PM
What time is/was the draft?

QLD
03-20-2003, 10:49 PM
It's going to be an autopick draft. I have set the league status to ready, and the draft will happen between now and Sunday!

QLD
03-20-2003, 11:58 PM
WOW! Apparantly the draft already happened!!!!!!!!

That was fast!!!

I am in the market for a good reliever, if anyone wants to make any offers.

Kidhuman
03-21-2003, 12:08 AM
Okay, I am happy with my team. QLD if you have a good 2b I have Kim and and Dotel for relief. I also have a plethera of CF if anyone is interested. Got B. Williams, Jr., and A. Jones. BTW how many relief pitchers sre you supposed to have?

Rogue II
03-21-2003, 06:44 AM
Woah. Phil Nevin is my only 3B and he may be out for the season.

Other than that, I'm fairly happy.

Kidhuman
03-21-2003, 07:55 AM
Anybody need a good first basema? I have Kenerko and Vaughn on the block. Have Giambi for starter.

Darth Shifty
03-21-2003, 11:48 AM
Wow, that was quick. I didn't even get to edit my draft order. That damn blizzard really screwed up my week. Well, I could use some pitchers - anyone want to throw me an offer?

Kidhuman
03-21-2003, 01:04 PM
Talk to me I have Clemens, Wells, and Burlhe, Zito and P. Martinez. I am open for offers.

Kidhuman
03-23-2003, 12:20 AM
I proposed trades to Shifty and Boba Fett if you guys are interested. LMK.

Kidhuman
03-30-2003, 03:58 PM
Does it now mean that the Quiet-Long Dongers are no more?

Kidhuman
03-30-2003, 05:11 PM
But what could they be called?

bobafett07728
03-31-2003, 10:42 AM
wooHOO!!! A-Rod put a good start to my season! One of his many Home Runs, plus a save from Ugy!!! WooHOO. I've never dona head-to-head format league, but this looks like it'll be fun. Good luck to everyone involved!

QLD
03-31-2003, 10:44 AM
I much prefer head to head than a points system.

I hope my guys come to play today!

Kidhuman
03-31-2003, 12:25 PM
I didn't have anyone from last night, but we will be going tonight. PLAY BALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck to kidhuman and Lando in my Pants! It appears I will have to settle for a possible third place finish. This was one of the best leagues I have been a part of. . . lots of fun!

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...........no you wont.


BTW what happens if we finish 5-5 over this 2 week derby?

Rogue II
09-17-2003, 06:35 AM
They call you down to Yahoo Headquarters and you have to fight it out.

QLD
09-19-2003, 12:34 PM
LOL.....I have no idea....but I am sure they break it down somehow.

Kidhuman
09-19-2003, 02:48 PM
Actually, I went back and looked at the results from the playoffs. I ited Rogue II the first week and went on ahead of him. It might go by you had the better erecord at that point

Rogue II
09-23-2003, 06:57 AM
Holy ___ are both of those playoff games tight! It could come down to one bad inning with the WHIP so close in both games.

In my other fantasy league, I finished 6th (out of 12 teams) during the regular season and I'm winning 8-2 in the championship game. Our regular season was pretty close. The 2nd place team was 9.5 games back and I was 12 games back.

Anyway, good luck with the rest of the season.

Kidhuman
09-23-2003, 07:02 AM
Yeah, it really is tight. I cant believe both are tied up with under a week to go. I am taking a big risk with 4 yankees starting though. If they get shut out I am doomed.

Kidhuman
09-27-2003, 07:45 PM
Damn two days left and it is tight. Talk about a race

Kidhuman
09-29-2003, 07:03 AM
Well a strong second place finish, Congrats to LIMP on his victory.

bobafett07728
09-29-2003, 05:20 PM
Great Season. . . I can't complain with my third place finish. At least I could say I had the best regular season record, for what that is worth. Now. . . to concentrate on Football. . .

QLD
09-29-2003, 07:44 PM
What a good season!

I can't believe I won the championship!

Great series kidhuman!
I'll look forward to next year.

Now on to my repeat as Football champion!

Rogue II
09-29-2003, 09:02 PM

That was a good season....even though i got whooped.
