Leagues open in less than a month. KH, I'd be happy to manage if you're busy. If not its all you, pal.

Who's in? Also, SLICK: Do you want me to draft/manage your team?

I am going to run it, I was checking on it the other day and it stated early Feb. I am in, Rogue II will be in. I will also get QLD to be in it. JJ is up for it too as well as snaps.

If you want to run a league also, be my guest, I will be in it.

And I changed it to 2008(you had 07 up there.)

Don't forget Cappy's Pappy.



If you want to run a league also, be my guest, I will be in it.I would love to as long as there is enough interest.

Bahh... baseball. The Tigers never seem to do anything big in the off-season to make me even the least bit excited..... ;)

They added Miggy Cabrerra and D-Train Willis. Thats a great move.

Plus, you forgot Edgar Rentaria and Jacques Jones.

I've never played Fantasy Baseball before, is it any fun? I'm not a big baseball fan, though I tend to watch the World Series.

Kidhuman
01-17-2008, 08:53 PM
Its all good, you will have a blast.

UKWildcat
01-17-2008, 09:00 PM
Its all good, you will have a blast.

Well, if there are any open spots right before the season starts I'll take one. I don't mind waiting or not playing, I would hate to take a spot from someone who would be more competitive and enjoy baseball a lot more than I.

Plus, I don't know crap about the players. Is Nolan Ryan still pitching?

Kidhuman
01-17-2008, 09:14 PM
Yeah, he is and Kirby Puckett still plays Centerfield.

CaptainSolo1138
01-17-2008, 09:44 PM
I only recommed it if you're able to make the appropriate changes every day. Unlike football, its not a once-a-week thing.

I propose sending a personal invite to BCJ just so someone will draft somebody from the Pirates.:p

Who's in? Also, SLICK: Do you want me to draft/manage your team?Eh, why not? You may as well have two teams to worry about and eat up part of our work day. ;)

Kidhuman
01-18-2008, 05:41 AM
You can make it harder and set it to make changes oce a week. We did that the first year when QLD ran it, it was a bit rough, especially if a pitcher got hurt or a regular player on Monday and he was in the line up for a week.

CaptainSolo1138
01-18-2008, 07:03 AM
You can make it harder and set it to make changes once a week.If I may: HELL NO! ;)

I think that screws those of us who take the time to look at our teams every day.


Yeah, he is and Kirby Puckett still plays Centerfield.And be sure to grab Rod Beck for your closing spot. That dude's aces.

Kidhuman

I didnt say I was going to, just that it can be done.

You have to draft Slick Clemens again this year

UKWildcat
01-18-2008, 05:22 PM
When does Fantasy Baseball start? and when is your draft?

Kidhuman
01-18-2008, 08:45 PM
It hasnt gone up yet, it will be sometime in Feb for registration, draft middle to end of March

UKWildcat
01-18-2008, 09:01 PM
Oh, okay. So it is a ways away.

Slicker
01-19-2008, 12:24 AM
Try and make sure that I get both Clemens and Bonds. And if possible I'd like Tejada too please. :love:

I'll see if I can make room in your rotation for Clemens, but that'll be tough with Cory Lidle in the mix.

It hasnt gone up yet, it will be sometime in Feb for registration, draft middle to end of MarchYahoo's fantasy page says "early February" for league formation.

Kidhuman
01-19-2008, 10:55 AM
I will be checking every ding dang doodled day from 2/1 on until we are in it.

List so far:

Rogue II
Cappy
Slickness
Snaps(DQ)
UK
QLD
Myself
JJreason


8 for now, can only do it with an even number. So the next one wo wants to play is on hold until the 2nd one joins or one of the above backs out. Caesar, if you read this ask JJB if he is down.

CaptainSolo1138
01-19-2008, 10:58 AM
Don't forget my father-in-law. That's 9. If it comes down to it I will have no trouble finding a filler to make it an even number.

DarthQuack
01-19-2008, 12:24 PM
Any word on if we'll be doing a live draft? Any money involved or just bragging rights?

CaptainSolo1138
01-19-2008, 12:41 PM
Any word on if we'll be doing a live draft?I can't remember ever not doing a live draft for anything. If there is a time when you CAN NOT attend a live draft be sure to let KH know ahead of time for planning purposes.

Kidhuman
01-19-2008, 04:09 PM
Its always a live draft. No money or anything, just for sh*ts and giggles

Slicker
01-19-2008, 06:54 PM
If you end up with an odd number and can't find an extra you can get rid of me. It's not as if I'll be able to play it much anyways seeing as we're about to go out again.

Kidhuman
01-19-2008, 09:32 PM
We will make it work somehow Slick. Dont (Boba)frett about it. :D

Well hell, that was going to be my stance. ;) or I'd fill in to make it even. But I'm not frettin'.

I can easily find someone to fill it. I'll wait a few more days to give someone here a chance, but do you want me to fill it if no one here does?

Kidhuman

YEah that will be good Cappy.

Oh, and since I have ManRam, can you add "Total # of dreds in hair" as a scoring category? How about adding "Asian" as a scoring category, as I have several. I think its kind of crappy, KH, to draft and then tailor the scoring system to your strengths.

What strengths? I added, triples, grand slams, K's Earned Runs. the only thing that might benefit me was triples and CG is out for at least another 2 weeks. K's help everyone. Earned Runs is an equal opportunity hater(especially if a starter gives up 9 in 3 innings).

That's an old argument and I'm well over it, but for the record, it was kind of carpy to draft Granderson and THEN add triples as a scorable category.

But since that benefit has yet to be reaped (and from the sounds of it its still going to be a while :(), its kind of hard to be bitter.

Kidhuman
04-15-2008, 04:38 AM
Just to make it known, I only added triples to even out categories. It was the last one added.

CaptainSolo1138
07-14-2008, 07:38 AM
Looking at the team I drafted and the team I now have, you'd think two different drafts took place. Well done, Joe Borowski.:rolleyes:

KH, I need Curtis Granderson. For the record, Evan Longoria came to my office last night and asked to be traded to a "contender". Just thought I'd let you know.;)

Kidhuman
