Looking for a couple fantasy baseball owners

Unread postby swerb » Mon Feb 14, 2011 8:02 am

My big fantasy baseball league, 10-12 years running now, is looking for a couple of owners.

20 team league. 10 team AL only, 10 team NL only and the champs of each side meet in the WS. $260, 23 player auction. Each team gets five keepers. Auction is live, in person, Sun March 27 at a bar in Eastlake OH at 10 AM. Great group of guys in the league. A LOT of smack talk, rivalries. A long term investment. Like the mafia ... death is the only way out.

Head to head league. Five standard offensive categories, on the pitching side ... just W, SV, K's. Win 3 of the 5 hitting categories for the week and you win hitting. Win 2 of the 3 pitching and you win pitching. Each team goes either 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2 each week. 20 week reg season, 40 total wins or losses possible. 8 teams make the playoffs, 4 on each side.

One AL team available and one NL team available. Here are the keeper options for both.

AL TEAM

2b-Dustin Pedroia 6
2b-Bill Hall $1
of-Jason Kubel $1
dh-David Ortiz $12
dh-Luke Scott $1

sp-CC Sabathia $40
sp-Ricky Romero $17
sp-Mark Beurhle $13
rp-Kevin Gregg $7

NL TEAM

1b-Travis Ishikawa $1
2b-Clint Barmes $9
ss-Everth Cabrera $4
ss-Starlin Castro $1
3b-Pablo Sandoval $15
of-Jason Bay $28
of-Cody Ross $7
of-Nate McLouth $3
of-Melky Cabrera $3
of-Jason Heyward $1

sp-Randy Wells $10
sp-Edison Volquez $5
sp-Wade LeBlanc $4
sp-Kyle Kendrick $1
rp-Huston Street $14

So a couple of people from the league died in the offseason? Seems like a bad omen for taking over one of their spots.

The other way out is marriage but no one wants to joke about that.

Yahoo is better. But I got a couple questions before I seriously consider.

What is the average age of everyone in this league? I'm only 21 and don't wanna feel out of place at the draft.

Whats the cash breakdown like? Top 3 get cash?

How does the keeper thing work? I'm assuming I wouldn't have to keep those players if I didn't want to but if I did I'd get first dibs and pay $17 "auction dollars" to keep Romero.

And the $200 gives you $260 to auction with right?

Most of league is 30-35. But we act like we are 21.

Division winners get cash. Top 2 from each league get cash.

You can keep up to 5 guys. Any 4, plus someone who qualifies as a rookie (<100 career IP or < 350 career AB).

Yes, entry is $200 and you get to spend up to $260 at auction for 23 players. If Romero was your only keeper, you would go to the auction needing 22 players and have $243 to spend.

And good choice with the AL. Those guys are chumps.
